    2016.5 P90D to 2022 Plaid Impressions

    Oh wow, this is such a great post. Thank you very much. I have a 2016 90D and I love it. I made all the retrofit upgrades, Self Driving computer, and the MCU and it did make a difference. But the one thing that I am missing now is the range. How much more range are you having in real life when...

    I just got may MS back from the Service Center and it was also updated to the .92 version. I could not see any major differences. Did use AutoPilot and this is definitely not the silky smooth AP.

    Did Tesla make a weirdmobile? Comparison 3 BMW 3 dash

    One good thing on the M3 interior is that Tesla finally fixed the position of the cup holders and the doors finally have storage! Probably the center armrest will also have storage. IMO it is embarrassing that the Model S is a 100K car with no proper interior storage. But that is now fixed on...

    Unplug Dashcams before going to Service!

    I just recently dropped my MS in the Sunnyvale Service Center and at the new Santa Clara Service center and in both occasions when I picked up my MS, the DashCam was disconnected. But there was no sign of damage.

    First look with pictures at Tesla’s new mobile app

    Just updated the app, I have to agree that it is disappointing. Just a design Refresh with added support for TouchID. I wish it could include things like Trip planner on the app for instance. Here is the link to the iOS one: Tesla Motors on the App Store

    Brand new Model S quality issues take months to resolve

    I just got my MS90D in December 2016. It has several little things that I want the SC to take a look. The closest SC is the one in Sunnyvale, so it concerns me that ppl are having a bad experience there. My car has a misaligned hood, front doors are hard to close, Side mirrors don't...

    I installed my Dashcam I think in the same day that you did yours @BigTonyTones . I did run the cable to the rear camera thru the roof space and it was super easy. The hard part is really passing the cable from the headline to the boot. I spend hour trying to get the tip to pass the fuselage of...

    Pencil down vs hire from Volvo

    I do agree that Tesla is improving on their fit and finish, as they are gradually improving their software, battery technology and on and on. But there are some things that the auto industry has solved and are reliable on a lot of cars (much cheaper cars) and I still have problems on my MS...

    Pencil down vs hire from Volvo

    Does anyone really believe that Tesla should not improve their interior on the MS? I am not saying they will do it, because there is no competition to Tesla on this segment. But do you really expect this level of interior (not talking about the screens) at this price tag? I totally would expect...

    $750 Hitch option required to install bike rack?

    Pencil down vs hire from Volvo

    I would say that the stream down of the 7 series features takes more like 3 years to show up on the 5 series, and the majority of the interior features don't get to the 3 series. The same I would say applies to the C / E and S Class. A a lot of the fancy interior stuff on the S Class never gets...
