    Same for me. It's a bummer.

    Oliver Trailers for Model X

    We had an Oliver trailer and it was by far the best trailer we have ever owned. We only sold it because it was too small for our family of 6. The build quality is impeccable, the company is incredible, Jim Oliver is so kind and has so much integrity. We were very, very sad to part with our...

    351 Mile Range!

    I would normally agree but this was built for our order. Our wonderful salesperson let us know that he would contact us if any inventory cars did become available with our configuration since it was so close to the end of the year and we wanted the last of the tax credit but also let us know...

    351 Mile Range!

    We ordered our MX on 12/22, it was built on 12/27, and delivered on 12/31. We have the E series battery which I find really odd considering the build date so I'm hoping that isn't actually a factor WRT the range increase. I guess we'll see.

    Backup Cam doesn't adjust exposure for night?

    I complained to our service tech during our last visit and he said the camera hardware is different on HW 3. I thought it was the same 2.5

    Supercharger - Kelso, WA

    Kelso helps us a lot. From Portland, we head out HWY 12 East to Randle. Currently, we have to go to Centralia which is 15 miles north of our exit, charge, then head back down to HWY 12. We have to do the same thing on the way home so this adds about an hour each way to our trip and an additional...

    Backup Cam doesn't adjust exposure for night?

    I turned on the rear fog lights and it helped a bit but it's still pretty terrible. I'm filing a bug report each time I have to deal with backing up at night because I'm so annoyed.

    Supercharger - Kelso, WA

    I'm so happy about this one! We have some property in Randle, WA and have had to go out of our way to charge in Centralia on the way there and on the way home. This adds about an hour to our trip each way. We did just trade in our 2016 90D X for a new Long-Range X so can probably make it there...

    Tesla 2016 model x versus 2020 model X

    We just traded our 2016 90D for a 2020 Long Range and there is quite a difference. The suspension is so much better. It's like driving a different car. The cabin is significantly quieter, the map is really speedy, one pedal driving is so nice. We didn't have premium sound in our old car but the...

    Backup Cam doesn't adjust exposure for night?

    We have the same issue with our 2020 X. The backup camera in our 2016 X was fantastic. Now we can barely see anything at night.

    Backup Cam doesnt adjust exp. for night?

    We just traded our 2016 X for a 2020 and the backup camera is all but useless at night so this doesn't seem to be limited to the S.

    QI Wireless Phone Charging

    We also tried to install a 3 coil charger but just couldn't get it to fit in the lid. I'd love to know if anyone was successful.

    Tipoon Camp Trailer

    I'm really hoping this makes its way to the US. It looks to be a great trailer option for the MX. I'm thinking it would be fairly simple to have a custom fiberglass airflow guard installed on the front to lessen the drag even further. Car-Friendly Camp Trailer Triples in Size

    Dashcam install by Johnny at Calibred Customs

    Johnny is great! He did our install and it was flawless. Fast too. Can't wait to see your pictures.

    Location Aware Charge Limit

    I would love it if the car would pop up a notification when we return home from a trip and ask If we want to decrease the charge limit from 100%. Reducing it after we travel just doesn't seem to ever happen until we notice after a day or three :oops:

    Wish I had gotten the premium sound

    I just spoke with someone at Reus and was pretty happy with what they had to say. They are going to try and find someone in the Portland area with a Tesla they have upgraded so we can listen but it sounds like they have put a lot of thought into systems for the X. Thank you for pointing me in...

    Wish I had gotten the premium sound

    I've adjusted it quite a bit but there is no comparison to the Dolby Surround. Toggling that on and off in the loaner was like night and day.

    Wish I had gotten the premium sound

    We had our MX in for its annual service and were given a loaner X with premium sound. What a difference! Before purchasing our X we read as much as we could and it seemed most people felt there wasn't enough or any difference to warrant the additional cost so we decided to pass on it. I'm...

    Auto sock traction study/test

    Has anyone tried these out on their MS or MX? I just ordered a set but would love to know what other's experiences have been.

    I'm in PDX. You are more than welcome to come charge here and have a cup of coffee or two while you wait. We're pretty friendly :-)

    Supercharger - Vancouver, WA

    Thank you for continuing to check on this! We talked to one of the electricians a couple of weeks ago and he was saying they were waiting for some missing parts from Tesla. Perhaps that's still the hold-up.

    Supercharger - Vancouver, WA

    Our first trip in our brand new X was from Portland to Vancouver, BC about a year ago and we had no issue at all using existing SC network. I was a bit worried about charging in Vancouver but the airport has chargers and we were going there anyway for our NEXUS interviews. We took delivery a...

    Frunk > Front Trunk

    You have a point although if a person can't distinguish those two words from the front seat I worry about their driving vision ;-)

    Frunk > Front Trunk

    Silly maybe but every time I open the frunk from the display I wish I could change the text from Front Trunk to Frunk. Who's with me?

    QI Wireless Phone Charging

    If that will unfold then it looks like it will probably fit. It's cheap enough that it would be worth trying. Yes we can close the cover and aside from the small LED light that you really have to look for it's not obvious anything is modified.

    QI Wireless Phone Charging

    We were able to fit everything into the flip panel. There seemed to be a reasonable amount of space for it.

    Tesla moments

    People ask me if my X gets good gas mileage. All. The. Time. I think in the future I'll say, "It does! I've been driving this car for nearly a year and have NEVER put gas in it."

    Another excellent dashcam install by Johnny at Calibred Customs

    Another happy Calibred Customs customer for sure. The dashcam install was affordable, fast, and seamless. I'm so glad Johnny was in the area because he's done TONS of these installs in Teslas and I really didn't want anyone else taking my car apart :-)

    2.49% rate for buyers in Oregon

    That's excellent! I'm assuming they are California buyers only?

    QI Wireless Phone Charging

    I tested this with our setup and it doesn't charge from the other side. I suppose if you used two coils that might work but they would have to be offset. I'd love to know if anyone tries this.

    Found the Perfect Utility Trailer for Our MX

    Sorry I am so delayed in posting! I just saw your question. We are using the Reese Towpower 7062800 and have it installed to use the 1/2 inch rise: REESE Towpower 2 In. Drop Carbon Forged Ball Mount Bar with Interlock-7062800-Reese Towpower

    Yep it was definitely the rain that had the most significant impact on our range. We live in the PNW though so rain is always going to be a factor.

    Found the Perfect Utility Trailer for Our MX

    Unfortunately we didn't look at anything but our estimated remaining charge. We've been driving it around today though and it's averaging about 430 Wh/mi with a fairly small load.

    This looks very handy! The trailer as-is isn't adjustable but maybe we can do something about that. We'll have to investigate. Thank you!

    Found the Perfect Utility Trailer for Our MX

    The ability to tow was a pretty big selling point for us when we decided to purchase the MX90D. We knew we'd be taking a range hit when towing but this wasn't a major problem for us since we primarily need to make trips to the Big Box stores for construction supplies. We're remodeling our old...

    AP2 update 17.7.2 new Autopark and Local autosteer

    Autosteer on local roads is pretty awful for me. It seems to drive way too close to the cars that are parked along the curb. On our street with no lane markings it prefers to drive on the wrong side but maybe that's expected behavior since it can't find any lines. It's pretty great on the...

    17.6.15 is out, any AP2 owners here that has it?

    Ours failed as well. SC said it will pop back up eventually.

    Financing - non-Alliant options?

    Yes it was First Community Credit Union. I just checked their page and the banner ad showing 1.49% is gone so no idea what the rate is now. Rivermark in Portland looks to be 1.79% right now. Apply for an Auto Loan | Rivermark Community Credit Union

    Should I.... And a few Questions (advice needed)

    We took delivery of our 90D in December and couldn't be happier. We noticed some very minor cosmetic issues mostly because we are being extremely picky. We should be picky though. It's a lot of money! Our one service visit was fantastic and the car is such a pleasure to drive or even just sit...

    Financing - non-Alliant options?

    I've typically found local credit unions to offer the best rates on car loans. We financed our Tesla locally here in the Portland Oregon area for 1.49% in December. Another local credit union is offering 1.79% currently but will also match lower rates.

    AP 2.0 and Rain Sensing Wipers

    Are rain sensing wipers supposed to be enabled on AP 2.0 vehicles? We have the latest update, 17.5.28, but our wipers on the first setting just seem to operate at the same delay cadence no matter what. Same with the second setting but less delay.
