    Tesla App Recognizing TSportline TPMS Sensors?

    Some time in 2020 the TPMS to car communication changed. i think it was a proprietary format changed to Bluetooth. The FCC ID shows 433 MHZ. two systems. Keep it in mind if you have extra wheels, and the TPMS system changed. It’s on YT

    Model S 75 or Model 3 Performance Stealth?

    2018 P3D is still my daily driver. Personally, I've had a 2016 Model S, but a friend has the AWD 75D, and it's a nice car. Roomy, decent acceleration, and he has the acceleration boost. I'd be happy in either car, but the S seems more luxury, and the P3D is cheaper to run, easier to park...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Glad I bought the "Omicron" dip Friday, although I holding out for a bigger dip, in case Musk dumps a bunch of shares in the "next week or so." Yea, I think 12/9 has some meaning

    Numerology on Twitter

    This may be a bit simplistic: These are hypothetical- He’s been selling lately, and presuming a 20 day before quarter end for selling rule, he would have until 12/10 to dump some odd 7 billion worth of shares. What if he A) sold equally every day till then, or B) dumped big time 12/9 (if no...

    Don't underestimate Kato Road... it's huge, right down the road, and well connected to multiple freeways, close to the port of Oakland. My Model 3 came from the "tent." I see car carriers full of Teslas all the time.

    Numerology on Twitter

    Maybe not an original thought, but 12/9 is a signal, and people are speculating whether it's a split or announcement of a split, or something else. Suppose it's when all the additional shares that would constitute his 10 percent are sold, and a stock split or dividend is announced. You can...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    No, and it's particularly insulting that Musk is paying a larger than needed tax bill to support the American Government, that will likely be translated into some sort of negative sentiment. Sure, there may be an agenda here, but when someone hands me 15 billion, I usually thank them in some way.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Similar move here... this is the first time I can remember when a somewhat finite amount of shares are being sold, under a widely discussed timeline, with further pain on the horizon. I'm sort of agreeing that it will end like a fireworks show, we'll all be in pain, but a great time to back up...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Hard to call a bottom, but what's the harm in some buy limit orders between 700-1000, subject to change without notice. What's not to like about EV Credits, price increases, higher margins, and production coming online ? Still think this will be one of the biggest buying gifts in TSLA...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    When you're worth as much as Elon, maybe this is a bit of governmental good karma, i.e. paying it forward. This is when all the financial advisors come out to prove their worth. Money isn't everything, but everybody I deal with seems to want mine. There is a point where taking the least...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    My spreadsheet ran out of cells trying to figure this out, and my brain ran out of cells also. I was surprised to see sales reported today in the Form 4 along with the runup in price we saw. Who's buying these shares ? To my tired brain, I'm going to rely on the brilliant forum members here...

    Same here, I guess the form was posted around 3:30PST ? I just looked at the IR site and you guys are way ahead of me.. flirting with 1100. Interesting, since it was posted during a tradable timeframe. Maybe the hemorrhaging is over. Yes, it did look like the sales were in reverse order...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I saw a Rivian R1-T near my house today, out of state plates, and it had a wrap on it. Wife couldn't get a good pic, but their IPO was (is) pretty ambitiously valued. Lot's of moving parts lately, and the theory that Tesla might have sold off to raise money for the Rivian IPO seems possible...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    No luck with speed humps in my area, but they are not well marked. I thought you needed to program a destination to test FSD, but today, I decided to start driving and turn AP on. It was like letting the car go wherever it wants. I drove into a residential area with a bunch of roundabouts...

    [Intentional Hyperbole] How FSD Beta Tried To Kill Me Today

    Apparently the FSD progress reports did not crater Tesla stock. The reality is that if the market is truly looking out several years, FSD is possible, which is where my financial relations with Tesla, and my relations as a car owner split paths. I think BETA for four years on an expensive...

    [Intentional Hyperbole] How FSD Beta Tried To Kill Me Today

    It was clear from the beta participation agreement that the car could do the wrong thing at the wrong time. One problem is people participating want to share experiences... I'm the same way. I'm sending lots of videos in, but placing priority on driving safely when traffic is nearby...

    After what time has passed would you consider an FSD class action lawsuit?

    "Exhibit A" sure seems like a good start for a small claims court claim to get a refund for the feature based on false or misleading statements leading to a purchase. I'm willing to give them time, and help them develop the feature, which was never agreed to by the way, but only until the...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    You can probably relate to this, I've been in Castro Valley a lot, and live between Industrial and Whipple, and the FSD is pretty bad when it needs to make turns in these narrow streets, and many turns are blind with large vehicles parked right up to the corners. I don't find my car is learning...

    Any 99 Safety Scores receive FSD Beta yet?

    First FSD drive this AM, similar to above, but on a general level, I would need to record the drive to be able to document the numerous errors the car made in a two mile drive. A few major observations though, in two categories, and I was on the chill profile. In my newly paved unmarked...

    Safety Score

    I seemed to need it, but I haven’t seen proof. You don’t need 7 days, although it’s hard to really know what reboots, and opt outs really do on the back end.

    Safety Score

    Opted in Tuesday AM, score 100 for 90 miles until unsafe following on a freeway off-ramp.. someone just had to cut in front of me because I wasn’t breaking fast enough. Instant 99. Drove another 50 miles, got FSD today. 140 miles, 99 score, 4 days of driving. Tomorrow should be...

    Ya think ? Wonder how the Beta robo taxi fleet will be accepted ? Tesla may be paying passengers by then

    Disenrolling or un-enrolling from the Beta button and Safety Score tracking

    Went from 100 to 99 when someone passed and cut me off on a freeway off-ramp, as I was slowly braking. My clock started Tuesday. Maybe tomorrow ! There's hope, I just have to learn to be patient. Back to the Warriors in overtime !

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    Just a guess, but did you try turning the car off for an hour ? The iPhone update just said "open" until I swiped down, then it said update, but can't speak to Android. You could disconnect and reconnect to wifi from the car. Lots of moving parts (bits). There's the whole disconnect all...

    After what time has passed would you consider an FSD class action lawsuit?

    I should have studied law.. the whole proposition of robotaxies may force the litmus test, and, yes, it's quite a leap for a company who refuses to fix silent FCWs because the feature is in beta. You can't buy the car without it, and it came with my old 2016 Model S. Even the method by which...

    What's your 100% charge range?

    2018 September Model 3P with 11,000 miles at 90 percent is about 260. I don't use 100 too often, but I could swear it wasn't over 290. I keep hearing it's an estimate, I've never supercharged, and set the daily to 90 pct, charge most nights. Today I drained the battery to about 40 miles which...

    2021.36.8 Adds Remote Sentry Live Footage on App

    Does this update preserve the FSD Opt in and out button ? The whole live view feature is being reported by several sources as "working now" except for the fact the car needs the update you are seeing. I'm on 2021.32.22. I guess life could be worse than waiting around for free stuff.

    After what time has passed would you consider an FSD class action lawsuit?

    Isn't the real "litmus test" whether or not the manufacturer assumes all liability for an accident ? Comments back when steering wheel design were discussed were "steering wheels may not be required." How would you interpret that ? It made me think there car would drive itself, and I would...

    Safety Score

    What's wrong with a reboot ? When my rear camera disappears, or the screen gets spastic, a reboot usually solves it. I reboot just about all the devices in my house, including my car, and my Router is set to automatically reboot.

    FSD Beta Revocation

    Wonder if safety scoring can be on and off the same way... I get it's used for insurance in Texas, but for purposes of FSD Beta participation, I'm pretty sure you are not part of the insurance pool, unless you already signed up for insurance.

    FSD Beta Revocation

    saflak said: I really don't get it. I am a good driver, no accidents or tickets in many years. What can someone expect with a 85 score that is a result of driving on a congested freeway with people who can't stand to see more than a car length before they cut in. I have mine set at 7 car lengths...

    Safety Score

    Yes, I think Tesla knows loopholes, and a part of me says Elon likes people that use their resources to solve complex problems. He games things also. There are plenty of tax loopholes still in place, and companies game them for billions. This is small potatoes. I actually think this is more...

    After what time has passed would you consider an FSD class action lawsuit?

    I liked the Small Claims court approach someone mentioned, ask for 10,000 plus any actual and reasonable damages, and offer to give the product back, since it was misrepresented, in my opinion. Some might call it fraud, but it’s a strong word to use if they are actually trying to make “good”...

    After what time has passed would you consider an FSD class action lawsuit?

    How about something exotic like using "The Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing or Promissory Estoppel ?" Often used in employment law, but dealing with the effects of promises made, and reasonableness.

    Safety Score

    Since Tesla Service told me that I'm free to opt out if I don't like the beta safety score, I don't feel bad about opting out. If I opted back in, it would be a "beta" or test strategy. People that mention Texas Tesla insurance is or could be affected by things like this need to remember, the...

    For what its worth, I have my FCW set to early, drove almost 100 miles in rainy rush hour traffic, and no FCWs, or phantom braking. I didn’t get to enjoy the 10.3 fiasco because I had less than 100 miles. Elon may have said 100 miles, but the website for driving score said miles don’t...

    I think I’m glad about the 100 mile minimum theory, or whatever it is during this chaos. No email or download, but score is 100. Thanks for all the tips, but I have a critical trip in the rain tomorrow AM, at rush hour. Keeping track of what software is on my car. Hope this gets sorted out...

    OK……. I somehow thought the purpose of the safety score, was among other things, to enter the beta. Remember the “button ?” Lots of people believe what Elon says… me, not so much. He tweeted a car would drive itself to New York. He does have significant influence though, and a genius. He...

    Number of FSD button pressers (wild speculation thread)

    During last week's earnings call, it was stated that there were 150,000 people enrolled in the driver score system. That much was clear. Not clear if that includes people with Tesla insurance, and if they get an ongoing safety score.

    A FLAT should NOT be this difficult!

    I think the OP had a miserable experience, and I'm not offended that he expressed his concerns. I would have been pretty upset, especially carrying a jack down the street fr those reasons. It would have been nice if Tesla automatically provided pucks, and threw in the fix a flat kit, but they...

    I converted the Tesla Safety Score tips and rules to a PDF from the support section of Tesla's website, and searched for 100 miles, but didn't see it. It states data is collected for up to 30 days. I know all of this is chaotic, and I've seen plenty of someone said this, and I heard this...

    This post was linked to today, and it was interesting that the local news in the SF Bay Area ran a story several times of cars with driver assist systems crashing into a white car in the rain, which is becoming a "thing" here.. Several brands of cars were shown crashing, and not one was a...
