    OEM CCS adapter now available to order in North America, Retrofit for older cars coming in 2023

    I asked around the holidays when in Canada and they had no news yet but you raise a good point that locally might be different . Would be good to have as a contingency on an upcoming road trip that take me through more sparse supercharger territory

    OEM CCS adapter now available to order in North America, Retrofit for older cars coming in 2023

    In app service still has “early 2023” teaser . Anyone aware if it’s dependent on location ? I know I can DIY as some have but a little uneasy as it involves the HV battery …

    How to avoid idle fee at super charger station

    You can always set a timer to check when you walk away if you’re in a new area (could be data coverage is patchy where you were). I don’t recall not getting the push notification other than being out of cell coverage (which is pretty rare)

    Anyone familiar with MY 7 seater setup?

    Didn’t realize it wasn’t carpeted under there. Thanks for the insight.

    Anyone familiar with MY 7 seater setup?

    I agree but I’m thinking they prefer to just charge customers for the privilege. Reduces the usefulness of the tax credit unfortunately.

    Anyone familiar with MY 7 seater setup?

    That’s why I’m wondering. Could be nice if seat mounts lend themselves well to repurposing . A bit expensive for tv room seating but a conversation starter for sure :)

    Anyone familiar with MY 7 seater setup?

    Wondering if anyone has attempted to remove the 3rd row on a 7 seat model y . Anybody here tried it yet ?

    A quick note about another case here (rear driver side). 2018, vin 099xxx. Noticed this a couple of weeks past warranty lapse :(

    $39k Used Model 3's on Tesla Website

    That’d be nice but Tesla likes to say FSD is worth 15k when it suits them , I doubt they’d sign the same song when removing it. Don’t get me wrong , they’ve made a lot of progress but for a fun toy , 5k is about right , not 15.

    2018 Model 3 AWD Sway Bar

    Thanks , all very good info ! I wasn’t thinking about the day to day harshness in the tri-state, you raise a very good point . I was wondering about MPP perf actually , wasn’t sure if I had to go all out for less roll. Maybe I’ll read up a bit more on MPP , not sure how well people do when they...

    2018 Model 3 AWD Sway Bar

    Thanks for the tip! So you’re saying even the “stealth” p3d should already have sway bars ? Roll seems pretty significant on ramps (even as slow as 30-40mph) , that’s why I was asking . I’m not looking to track the car (yet at least 🙂) but it almost felt like there was no sway bar at all.

    2018 Model 3 AWD Sway Bar

    Anyone with experience adding p3d sway bars to non-pup performance 3 out there ? I’m assuming the awd and non-pup p3d simply don’t have bars and links but can be ordered (maybe with a p3d+ vin) ?

    HW4 for true FSD

    I thought that’s why they use RCCB sensors but haven’t read up too much about it. I’ve been hearing that high def radar might be making an appearance - likely good news for fog and snow storms etc.

    No worries. Good to know about cabin though !

    HW4 for true FSD

    That snooze is exactly why I hope the night vision gets resolved. If it can be done safely there’d be no shortage of people that would pay for that feature.

    The error was referring to outside cameras . Did you mean cabin camera ?

    HW4 for true FSD

    Good point. That makes a certain 2019 tweet a little risky though :( I really do want the company to succeed with fsd and as someone with a bit of skin in the game I hope that tweet doesn't become grounds for litigation if the hardware isn’t possible to retrofit on first gen 3s and Ys.

    HW4 for true FSD

    Edit: meant to title as question but can’t edit title :( First , I should specify that I’m rooting for TSLA to solve FSD . Witnessing the progress first hand is why I signed up for the beta program. So far , the issues I’ve seen all seem surmountable with improved software but recently , an...

    Supercharger - Kemptville Ontario

    Handy for those of us that don’t have a heat pump though . Salmon Run to Nepean is tight in -20 weather on winter tires.

    OEM CCS adapter now available to order in North America, Retrofit for older cars coming in 2023

    Same issue . For a while they rolled out, due to chip shortages, they rolled out cars with stripped down charging ECUs. If I’d have to guess you might get the retrofit cheaper or free seeing as you should have had CCS support.

    Supercharger - Little Ferry, NJ

    Fireworks today but unfortunately still no power :(

    Hoping for standardization….

    Just saw how some providers try and help TSLA owners charge between super chargers . Good thing the CCS adapter just came out bc I can’t image that MacGyver job would do well over time .

    OEM CCS adapter now available to order in North America, Retrofit for older cars coming in 2023

    Yeah , can’t wait to have F150s and the like block multiple stalls on account of charge ports on the wrong side . Fun times are coming .

    OEM CCS adapter now available to order in North America, Retrofit for older cars coming in 2023

    Personally it’s cottage country , road trips , national parks . While SC are super convenient when driving in urban areas or major highways , I’ve noticed low traffic areas that pay for chargers with public funds tend to use CCS.

    WTB: CCS Combo 1 Adapter

    If anyone in the NYC area is willing to sell one , pm me pls (prior post got deleted ?) Bay Area would work too (could coordinate with friends/family). I’d order from Tesla but have a 2018 model 3 so tsla won’t sell me one till next year sometime …

    Power Trunk Retrofit on Current 3s

    Does anyone know if it’s possible to retrofit 2018 model 3s with an oem power trunk ? Im assuming Tesla would tell me to just buy a new car and wouldn’t allow ordering parts if vin doesn’t match but maybe using an alternate vin ?

    Cabin camera broken

    Seems like a temp issue indeed . This happened multiple times while the temp was quite hot out here. As others have been saying Tesla seems to have moved to ignoring this (I’m under warranty and they’re quoting a price on assessment even) . Looks like they’re standing less and less behind their...

    Service via app , good times ?

    How’s everyone’s experience with using the app for service ? Personally I’ve had a couple good experiences (charging port needed servicing twice in 4 yrs) but when things aren’t simple repetitive problems the app model seems VERY inefficient . Wondering if I’m the outlier here or if it has...

    2022.8.2

    What a difference with range estimates ! Drove back home from visiting family - 450 mi , 10k feet elevation, 4 charging stops in windy cool weather (14 to 32F). All charging stops were within ~ 10 mi of estimates. Kudos to the Tesla team for addressing this ! Can’t wait to see what...

    We are still a long way from the convenience of gas stations

    Agreed . Maybe if others did like Germany and pass a law that all gas stations need a charger . Might not always help speed but could prevent getting stranded . I love my p3d and would never change it for ICE but I have to say that when i have to start planning in detail , I do get a little...

    No CarPlay is a deal breaker. WTF?

    That and I suspect the manufacturer has to give up data or doesn’t get all of it from apple or google if their systems are used . As some pointed out , it drives data subscriptions too and as we know , many companies turn to services for stable revenue. Throw in an eventual Tesla App Store or...

    Wiki Largest gaps between Superchargers on US Interstates

    Wow ! There are some looooong stretches out there . Kinda makes Ottawa - Kingston (180) look short :) I guess these gap concerns might go away if we eventually get CCS adapters (in a pinch it can help reduce gaps)

    We are still a long way from the convenience of gas stations

    That’s certainly the way to do it. Not an option for me yet till I upgrade their breaker box . Thats actually the underlying point i was making , sometimes as much as we plan , there’s no choice but having an unplugged (or under plugged ) night in cold weather and heading to a charger in AM...

    We are still a long way from the convenience of gas stations

    Good point , it’s better than it was . I’ll give it another try next visit , maybe next update will be even better (that departure was on v11). My suspicion is conditioning for driving isn’t the same as conditioning for SC. Sounds like an easy adjustment but might not be frequent enough of a...

    We are still a long way from the convenience of gas stations

    Yeah , not saying to go ICE. Just that sometimes , you don’t have a choice to plug on L2 . Would be nice if we could make the choice to condition the battery more aggressively (particularly if next day’s route has a SC in range) . We could choose to do this even at the cost of range if we know...

    Is it okay to charge to 100% if I am immediately going to use it right away?

    Frequent SC is more of the problem than SOC I think. Just manage your expectations , the battery won’t melt but something like 10% deg at year 3 would be “normal”
  46. Allx

    We are still a long way from the convenience of gas stations

    Oh boy , now you started something ;-) Kidding aside , 400-450wh/mi is pretty common at -10 or -15F so it might be more like 700 or 800mi🤭 unless winter range gets a lot better. Better off using a SC and hire staff for protection considering the lucid pricing .

    Wiki Largest gaps between Superchargers on US Interstates

    Starting with major highways would be a good start . Trans Canada highway, 401, 417, 40 type of thing. Kingston - Ottawa can be surprisingly tight on those -20C days and heading south of the border via the Landsdowne crossing /81 is a similar story in winter .

    We are still a long way from the convenience of gas stations

    It’s true that being able to enter a destination or next SC the day before would be great for those days where there's no other option than a cold start . Similar thing happened to me the other day , leaving a family visit at -15F plugged into a 15A. Supercharger was too close ironically enough...
