    2016 (facelift) Model S P90DL for sale

    That's totally right. I am absolutely not looking to mislead anyone. A full (trip) charge on rated setting is showing 252 miles. So to be completely clear, as of today's date, with 41,290 miles on the car, a full charge (to "trip"/maximum charge setting) shows the following ranges: - IDEAL...

    2016 (facelift) Model S P90DL for sale

    good point on the cell data plan, thanks. Yeah, i probably should get the wheels refinished... but was hoping to sell it quicly without. maybe wasn't the right choice, but you're right... if not for that, this would be really meticulous.

    How will Full Self Driving deal with turning into perpendicular fast-moving traffic?

    Apologies, i misread that chart - it does seem the "forward looking side cameras" can cover the 90 degree sideways view. I thought that pale yellow was (not to scale) ultrasonic. Excuse the question... should have done more research before posting.

    How will Full Self Driving deal with turning into perpendicular fast-moving traffic?

    Shouldn't Tesla have two more cameras that point directly left and right, ideally from somewhere close to the front bumper? With the current set of cameras, there doesn't seem to be a view perpendicular to the direction of travel, pointing left and right of the vehicle. A FSD car approaching a...

    What happens when garage door is already opened?

    I solve this in a different way. I have a "smarter" garage controller (Garageio.com) connected to our normal homelink controller. Garageio DOES know if the door is open or closed and therefore gives you discrete open and close functionality, regardless of the state of the door. Since Tesla...

    Two M3's? How to differentiate card keys?

    Agree it would be great if they can pair one keycard to multiple cars, but to the person asking why you couldn't just keep both in your wallet, keep in mind that keycard's don't work like Model S/X fobs... you need to tap the right card to the right spot in the b-pillar... so i doubt you could...

    Supercharger - Los Gatos (expanded Jun 2021, 20 Urban stalls)

    Ah, got it. so it's not going to be ready quite as soon as I had hoped. Thanks for the better information. I live pretty close, so i'll try to keep an eye on it every couple of days.

    Supercharger - Los Gatos (expanded Jun 2021, 20 Urban stalls)

    Went by Thursday afternoon, and it REALLY looks ready to go. Signage installed, spots cleared out, chargers fully installed.No signs of any construction vehicles or activity, and the area is fully accessible. My guess is it's awaiting some final inspection or check by Tesla or the city or...

    Vendor Group Buy - Thinkware F800 Pro Dual Channel Dash Cam - DashCam Bros

    can anyone comment on how hard it is to install this on a Model S? Where do you find the constant-voltage and ignition-voltage sources to tap? Thanks, -josh

    Two days with Model 3 impressions/review- This is not a mini model S

    You're right, but it's both dim and tiny. Does not stand out in any way. Very hard to see in a dark car for some reason. Your idea about it pulsing, or flickering (or just getting way brighter) when car is in Park, is a good solution.

    Phone as Key Issues

    I don't understand. I didn't claim it was an error in the app. Seems that's the way it is supposed to work so you only unlock one vehicle (desired one) at a time if you own more than one. I have issues with the car and UI, but so far for us (multi-Tesla family), the way the phone-key/app...

    Two days with Model 3 impressions/review- This is not a mini model S

    Here's a much easier fix for Tesla: make the door release button chrome instead of black. I have no idea why they made a black button on a black door console in a black interior and expected people to find this non-conventional way to open the door. I'm convinced 90% of my passengers who...

    Phone as Key Issues

    Well, then there's definitely something wrong with your car or phone. I'm sure service will get it straightened out. We have some complaints about the Model 3, but the phone key is not one... has worked perfectly since day 1 other than some user errors like having the app on the wrong vehicle...

    Phone as Key Issues

    Since your sig says you also have a Model S, I just wanted to be sure you haven't swiped over to the Model S on your Tesla app? Unless your tesla app is left showing your Model 3, the phone-as-key won't work.

    Considering canceling due to size, lack of sunroof, and lack of power lift gate

    Regarding the glass roof, we have a Model S and a Model 3, and I've sat in my sister's Model X. The 3's windshield is conventional and has normal sun visors. Separate from the glass room, it's NOT a single piece of glass from the front of the windshield right back over the room like the Model...

    Walk up unlock/lock

    It unlocks all the doors at once. I don't see an option anywhere to change this to driver's door only. I think you're pointing out something important - there's almost no functionality difference between walk-up unlock on or off. When it's on, the lights flash and the mirrors start moving...

    Walk up unlock/lock

    At the moment, the phones aren't lined to profiles. Maybe that's coming. My wife and I haven't found it to be a problem. The car assumes that whoever drove it last is entering the car when it unlocks via any registered phone-key. But this isn't a problem if you've enabled "Easy Access" for...

    Walk up unlock/lock

    Walk-up Unlock is completely separate from Walk-away Locking. Yes, you can disable walk-up Unlock and the car will still lock itself when you park, get out, and walk away from the car. Just checked this to make sure, and it works great. And, as i posted elsewhere disabling walk-up unlock...

    Switch cars in app to stop phone key from working!

    Huh? Turning off "walk-up unlock" doesn't change the security around unlocking at all. It simply disables the automatic unlocking until you press the door handle. It won't unlock with proximity of your phone by itself, only the combination of your phone being nearby and touching the door handle...

    Has anyone been able to connect their wifi to their 3?

    I doubt that's true as there'd need to be some interface for entering your wifi password, and there isn't. Wifi just isn't enabled yet but will be. More likely is that you're getting bits of the software update as you drive around in areas of cell coverage and after enough time, it has the full...

    Two days with Model 3 impressions/review- This is not a mini model S

    Good point... the button at the end of that lever, for Park, probably doesn't change... though I was under the impression the car wouldn't let you put it into park while driving anything over a very slow speed. But your point is well-taken, the up/down functions of that stalk change to...

    Tesla Model 3 0-60 in 4.6 Seconds...

    Chill mode DRAMATICALLY slows down my P90DL. Haven't tested it, but I bet it would be slower to 60 (floored) than the Model 3. BTW, Model S Valet-mode also restricts speed and acceleration. I'm not sure yet if Chill and Valet have the same drive parameters or not. I may try to test those...

    Two days with Model 3 impressions/review- This is not a mini model S

    I agree - having become so used to Model S autopilot, it's scary to use that gear selector to also be the autopilot control stalk. Just seems wrong and scary to even touch a gear selector at 60mph on the highway. But you do get used to it. If the car is moving, that stalk is autopilot...

    Model 3 Phone Charge Cable Swap Thread

    Correct - we asked for two lightning connectors and they swapped the usb-c one out for free at delivery time. When you go for delivery, be sure to ask for the two cables you want. I completely agree. Posted elsewhere that I hope some aftermarket supplier offers a swap-in replacement for the...

    Two days with Model 3 impressions/review- This is not a mini model S

    I thought the same thing... but now I appreciate that the Model 3 implementation is actually better. Try an auto-lane-change in autopilot mode on both cars, and you'll see the advantage of software-cancellable turn signals (Model 3) vs. mechanically-cancelled turn signals (Model S). With Model...

    Neat Model 3 "Easter Egg" found

    Ah - got it. Yes, that would be impressive. I've done a full "Trip" charge at a supercharger and it stopped at 310, just as claimed. I even let it do a full 15 minute "rebalance" or whatever it does after it finishes charging but keeps drawing power, and it never got above 310.

    Neat Model 3 "Easter Egg" found

    My slight disappointment with this easter egg has always been that as the little rendering of your car races off to the left of the screen, its wheels don't spin. It kinda slides off screen rather than drives. I mean, where are their UI engineers' priorities? They couldn't animate the...

    Highest production VIN in the wild

    Fine, if you want facts, the cancellation rate was already at 12% before they shipped any cars. (source: Tesla saw about 63,000 cancellations of Model 3 preorders). 12%, not 1% as you guess. And since that's BEFORE anyone had to write a check for $40k-50k, my own guess is that cancellation...

    Highest production VIN in the wild

    Really? We're BOTH speculating here. By ignoring breakage in your math, you're in fact speculating that it's zero. I'm speculating that it's something other than zero. I guarantee that forecasting "more than zero" breakage is going to be more accurate than your speculation that it will be...

    Highest production VIN in the wild

    OK, i give up... that's ridiculous logic. It won't be all, it won't be none, it will be some reasonable number of cancellations. We can debate if it's 20%, 50%, or 70%, but it's certainly somewhere in that range. Admittedly, that's a big range. But it'd be crazy to ignore the possibility of...

    Next Software Update - features that will be included (rumor for now)

    That's often the case with new glass or new blades. Give it time and it usually calms down with more usage.

    Highest production VIN in the wild

    I don't think so, but we're probably just debating semantics here. In my mind, the real backlog is the orders that haven't been fulfilled LESS the ones that get cancelled along the way. I'll try to explain it another way. Let's say Elon says that as of today, there are 600,000 deposits for...
  45. JoshG

    Highest production VIN in the wild

    we're talking about today's backlog, not what's happening going forward. My only point is that (Number of $1000 Refundable deposits) ≠ (Number of cars that must be delivered ahead of someone placing an order today). There's some breakage in that order book.
  46. JoshG

    Highest production VIN in the wild

    Garlan - the real backlog is not 500k vehicles. There are ~500k refundable deposits. I'm guessing that will translate into 200k-250k backlog. Many people will back out due to the delay, changes to their financial picture, just decided on something else, etc. Still ominous... but not quite as...

    Tesla Announces Q4 Units: ~1,400-1,700 Model 3s produced in December

    Most leasing companies are happy to extend your lease at the end for the same monthly amount. I've done this at least 4 times. Just call and ask. After all, they're getting a higher monthly payment from you than they'd have gotten had you originally done a longer lease, so it works out better...

    Next Software Update - features that will be included (rumor for now)

    Yes, just found same thing. Scheduled charging is NOT in 48.15, but auto wipers ARE in this latest version. Just in time for today's rain here in bay area.
