    Elektrek Article featured one of our very own

    My understanding it was because he was “snippy” in a post where he obviously knew what he was talking about but others claimed he was wrong.

    Same exact issue here. Scheduling a service appointment I guess.

    Tesla Winter Wheel and Tire Package Delivery Time?

    I spent a grand total of $2,901.44 w/ used wheels vs. $4,290.00 at Tesla for the performance tire package. Saved a grand plus I actually have the tires vs. nothing.

    Tesla Winter Wheel and Tire Package Delivery Time?

    I *tried* to cancel my order. Two emails to onlineorders went unanswered. After disputing with my credit card a third email resulted in a promise to cancel and refund.

    PG&E EV-A + Powerwall + Solar = double billed?

    I am not getting very far with PG&E in fixing my October-November bill which was doubled. Can any folks with EV-A and solar/paired storage/NEM check your bills and tell me if you have the same issue? September-October bill October-November bill November-December bill As you can see, the...

    Tesla Winter Wheel and Tire Package Delivery Time?

    I cancelled my order. I bought some used wheels and ordered Sottozero 2s from Tirerack. Ridiculous.

    Model 3 Keyfob Gen2 Battery Life

    I bought a fob because my phone was draining too fast (10% of my usage was the Tesla app in the background). I am always close-ish to the car. I'll probably exchange phone battery life for fob battery life :(

    Model 3 Performance winter tire package (18" Sport Edition A11 w/ Blizzak LM001)

    I am not willing to ship at this time. If that changes I'll update this post.

    Everybody give up. I have the magic Tesla!

    It gained 0.59 kWh in one idle session and 1 kWh in another.

    Model 3 Performance winter tire package (18" Sport Edition A11 w/ Blizzak LM001)

    I bought this winter tire package last winter from TireRack.com because Tesla hadn't put together a package that worked for Model 3 Performance yet. But now I'd like to keep the 20" look and get the Tesla package. The tires have exactly 7,077 miles on them and I'm in Northern California between...

    $1k Refunds on FSD Start March 11

    Correct. I purchased the vehicle in July 2018 but purchased the $3k FSD hours before it dropped to $2k. Therefore I received $1k back.

    Successful roof rack & wheel-on bike rack pairing

    Definitely not possible with the t-slot kit. Maybe possible with the straps but I’d be worried about a shim working loose and then the whole rack coming down.

    New PG&E EV2-A Rate?

    When did you get PTO for your solar? I believe it’s five years from that year. I’m not sure how it works if you rate switch afterwards.

    Successful roof rack & wheel-on bike rack pairing

    I am 6'2" and my Performance Model 3 sits 1" lower than a normal Model 3. My bike is 33 lbs/15 kg and I have zero complaints at all. I am happy to put it up and down all day. A full 7" shorter might be a little bit of a hassle, but the car itself is quite squat so I wouldn't imagine so. I...

    New PG&E EV2-A Rate?

    Maybe they are seeing the writing on the wall wrt. paired solar + energy storage. For example, since I've had my single Powerwall installed in April I have consumed net 1587 kWh from PG&E, yet I am "owed" ~$100 in NEM credits for an effective -$0.06/kWh rate. This is achievable purely by...

    Performance not getting 310 miles promised

    I went on a trip today. Charged to 100% and showed 296 miles. Went 190 miles. Charge was down to 28% at 240 wh/mi (speed limit was 55 mph or under the entire time). 190 / (1-0.28) = 264 miles range. 75,000 / 240 = 313 miles range. What? How do I reconcile these numbers? Do I really have 15.5%...

    Successful roof rack & wheel-on bike rack pairing

    I have the OEM rack and a Yakima Highroad with the T-slot kit. Not sure the t-slot is worth it, but it’s nice to have I guess. Makes me feel like I’m using the slots.

    New PG&E EV2-A Rate?

    Yes. "Current EV-A customers must submit their interconnection application by November 30th, 2019 to remain the EV-A rate. If the application is submitted in time but PTO is not received prior to November 2019, customers will be transitioned to EV2-A, and returned to EV-A once PTO is granted."...

    New PG&E EV2-A Rate?

    With a Powerwall in Cost Saving mode, peak should be covered by the PW, and it's slightly better because the peak period is shorter (I usually run out of PW juice in the last two hours). However, the loss of pushing partial and peak power back to the grid with NEM is disastrous. I don't produce...

    Supercharger - Placerville, CA - Broadway (LIVE Aug 30, 2019, 12 V2 stalls)

    Placerville is now showing as Reduced Service. I drove by, it looks like most of the pedestals are lit up with 2-3 offline. They (re?)moved the redundant pedestal. Signs are going up stating Tesla Charging Only which is good.

    Supercharger - Placerville, CA - Broadway (LIVE Aug 30, 2019, 12 V2 stalls)

    I've met a person who frequents Sierra-at-Tahoe that is coming from Cameron Park. Usually gets to the resort with 10-15 miles left. I let him have my charging spot every time because I typically can make it home.

    Supercharger - Placerville, CA - Broadway (LIVE Aug 30, 2019, 12 V2 stalls)

    I formally apologize to the community. I live within 2 miles of this Supercharger and I visit the shopping center frequently. I never saw it being built!

    Paid FSD but HW 2.5 onboard!

    By the time there is any appreciable difference between HW 2.5 and HW 3.0 then we'll get upgraded.

    Design Flaw? White Interior

    Be careful, park with your rear seat down

    FWIW I recently took a trip to SF. Parked in a secured parking garage and left the seats down. No problems.

    Question on Time Based Controls - Balanced

    I've been using TBC-Cost Saving for the last two weeks (PW installed two weeks ago, enabled TBC two days later). Today it decided to charge to only 70% SOC during shoulder and ran out of charge before peak was over (reserve was set to 25%), causing me to pull from the grid during peak (ugh)...

    Overnight microcharges

    It'll only do it for the six hour window after scheduled charging starts. If your off-peak TOU period is >= 6 hours then you should be fine.

    $1k Refunds on FSD Start March 11

    I went through this with the $5k back for giving up free Supercharging. It took forever but they eventually did it. I requested the $5k on October 25th. Didn't get the check until December 18th. I can't imagine how many departments it goes through… finding out who needs refunds, going through...

    When do I maintain my Model 3?

    Has anyone done the brake caliper check and lube? I don't live in a super cold climate, but I drive to Tahoe and the roads there are wet/snowy/sandy. I'm at 12k miles and now would be the time to get it done.

    Are you leaving Sentry Mode on all night? I've seen this occasionally with Sentry Mode off, frequently with it on.

    Bent rim

    In August 2018 I hit a pothole hard. I inspected the outside of the tire and the wheel and everything seemed fine. Today, while swapping back to summer wheels I noticed the rims were bent, one very slightly and the other noticeable: I've unknowingly driven on them for ~5000 miles with no...
