    What should my ideal charge percentage be?

    I've now had my (well used) 2014 85 for a year. I have been charging to 80% and recently bumped to 82%(ish). Because I got my car from a dealer, I have no information on the PO and his charging habits. I often do 120 miles in a day... Just turned 117K miles and a full cpacity charge (I've only...

    Service issues

    West Los Angeles service center has been good. It took weeks until my scheduled work (intermittent dead screen and later 4G upgrade). For the amount of work, the car was kept for several days beyond what you'd expect. In both cases, I got 'bonus' service beyond what I paid for. So, the logistics...

    4G LTE upgrade appointments hard to get!

    Tesla reached out to me to upgrade 3G to 4G. $219 total price. Gave me an appointment date. Then on arrival, told me they needed it for 2-1/2 weeks! Good lord. I have an auto restoration shop so I know a bit about making appointments and delivering service. I asked if they could just let me...

    Source for Bilstein coil struts?

    In my other world (Porsche) Bilstein has refused to rebuild coilover struts they supplied to a third party. I was able to find an independent suspension specialist to rebuild the struts. You may have to do some investigating. I only have 110K miles on my '14 S, but sensing that rear struts could...

    Too many colors! (HOV Access stickers)

    Wanting to revive this old thread: I bought a used Model S with red stickers that are about to become invalid. As BEVs get different colored stickers now that remain valid, I'm wondering about applying for different stickers. The REG 1000 application isn't exactly clear about how that might be...

    Denied eMMC replacement - what to do?

    My 2014 is AP-nothing, so $2000, plus $500 for the FM module, I'm guessing. Moot point since the SC had no parts to replace the bubbled touchscreen or the MCU.

    Denied eMMC replacement - what to do?

    Well, folks about 2 hours after my post, Tesla calls & says my car is ready. I discuss screen replacement and MCU2 upgrade. Now it sounds like MCU2 includes the main screen and dash screen and it's more like $2500... but I didn't drill into it, because there aren't parts available to do the...

    Denied eMMC replacement - what to do?

    Dropped off my 2014 last Friday at the Tesla service center. They said it'd be 5 days... I said 'why did you schedule me so far in advance of the work you're going to do?' (EMM daughterboard replacement). They gave me a BS answer about it taking a long time to upgrade firmware. Well...

    Model S - Buying a used 2014 model

    I have about a month of experience on my 104K-mile 2014 85. It came with a fluid void in the touchscreen, which is not super bothersome, but I will be replacing it. It takes about 12-15 seconds for the dash panel to boot up, but the touchscreen is usually on when I get in the car. I've had a...

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Tesla-approved tires carry a T0 designation and have a band of foam material on the inner circumference. I recently bought a set of Model X Slipstreams (20") for my 2014 Model S and bought Ohtsu FP8000 tires, which are around $125 each and not Tesla-blessed. Trying it out. So far so good. I...

    Trying to get tech support for Home Charging

    brkraus: its almost as if I can't trust everthing printed on the Internet! Moved the charger to a better outlet and... it started (trickle) charging. Sorry for the barrage of misinfo I digested. I'm a newbie to the Tesla ecosystem. I'll figure it out. And thank you.

    Trying to get tech support for Home Charging

    My bad. This manual is giving me a different interpretation of the 4 flashes than the previous one I found. It's indicating a bad ground, which is something I can address. However, the "commissioning" process still requires a WiFi connection and a password, which apparently was in a document I...

    Trying to get tech support for Home Charging

    Thanks. Been through all that. As it says on page 10, 4 flashes means WiFi needs to be set up, but the device does not appear as a 'network' on my phone and the web page for doing the setup seems to be no longer in existence. So, as stated before, I need to find someone who has been through...

    Trying to get tech support for Home Charging

    Hey. New Model S owner here (105K mile 2014) got it through a dealer, so I inherited a level 1 charger which is giving me 4 flashes -- which is an indication it needs WiFi setup. But it doesn't appear as a 'network' on my phone. The QR code scan gives me a bunch of numbers that do not resolve to...
