    I thought you can export your playlists. Then import them when you get a n ew account. Am I wrong?

    Do I have Premium Connectivity?

    Tesla is very slow to react. I had free supercharging for 5000 miles or 6 months, whichever came first. Turns out it took them over 8 months to stop it. My premium connectivity also went well past the 1 year mark. So don't get excited and think they forgot about you if you still have it February...

    Do I have Premium Connectivity?

    Does the streaming music work? When I got my car, I like many others thought premium connectivity was lifetime, as I was told that. Three months after I received my car, Tesla now only gave one year of premium and they anti-grandfathered it away from the people who had it. Ok, no big deal, so I...

    Electricity Cost Spikes

    Might be cheaper to go to a supercharger, unless the SC are higher in MA also.

    What is the "Streaming" app, exactly?

    You don't, it should just be already set when you get the car. I don't know how it is done now, but when I got my car in 2019, Slacker was included and was told it is just a "tesla account." You cannot know the login, although previously, people were given the login from Tesla if they asked, but...

    What is the "Streaming" app, exactly?

    No, the Tesla account is proprietary. Making a free account will not carry over anything to the Tesla and you cannot even login in the Tesla with the free account. At least that's the way it was with Slacker.

    Energy Costs - My co-op installing chargers that are 50c kWh

    This chart is usless. New York rates vary from 12 cents per kWh to 27 cents per kWh. Average is useless when the spread is huge.

    Energy Costs - My co-op installing chargers that are 50c kWh

    Wow, I thought my 0.27/kWh on Long Island was high, but .50 might be higher than Hawaii!

    Is it possible to get 250 miles on the interstate with a 2022 M3P?

    The everchanging rates have been updated again. My local supercharger is no longer 27 cents 24/7. It is now 34 cents off hours and 48 cents peak. Oh well, home charging it is.
  11. garth_angst

    Is it possible to get 250 miles on the interstate with a 2022 M3P?

    My home rate is a tad under 27 cents per kWh. The supercharger closest to my house has 24/7 rate of 27 cents per kWh. I get no savings at home in my case. All other superchargers nearby are 27 cents off peak and 54 cents during peak. Ouch!
  12. garth_angst

    Is it possible to get 250 miles on the interstate with a 2022 M3P?

    Averages mean nothing when they low and high are so far apart. Take an extreme case of the numbers 1 and 1,000,000. The average is 500,000, so far apart from the high and low. One number per state is really meaningless.
  13. garth_angst

    Is it possible to get 250 miles on the interstate with a 2022 M3P?

    I laugh and HATE that chart. It is way too general. As someone once said to me, "You are in a different New York." Upstate NY may be 12 cents per kWh, but where I am, it is about 27 cents now. I don't know how other states work, but NY has a whole slew of different rates.

    No Safety Score showing

    Everyone gets FSD beta now if you ask, so I see no reason for a score anymore. Maybe that is Tesla's thinking too?

    Model 3 Extended Warranty?

    Yup, that's the control arm. Mine sounded like a huge old truck. Mine were replaced free under warranty.

    Model 3 Extended Warranty?

    Yep, they greased mine when I brought it in for tire replacement. A year later, it was waaaaaay worse that I didn't even want to drive my car. It sounded like some old jalopy and I was embarrassed. This time they replaced both control arms.

    PCS_a052 Error when trying to charge on 110V at home

    My guess, and I am usually wrong. Extension cord is a no-no, but also is that 110v outlet isolated, as in the only outlet on that circuit. Even charging as low as a 110v outlet, it should not be on a circuit with other possible electricity draws due to the sustained power draw.
  18. garth_angst

    Charge limited to 16/48a

    Sounds like maybe PCS failure? https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/power-conversion-system-pcs-failure.200198/

    Am I Supposed To Be Getting Better Range Than This?

    YOUR lifetime stats, but what are the stats for the full 44,000 miles on the car or were they erased? I'm interested to to see if the previous driver was super aggressive or not.
  22. garth_angst

    Am I Supposed To Be Getting Better Range Than This?

    What is the lifetime Wh/mi? I have driven 16,000 miles in 3+ years (working from home keeps it low) and mine is 225 Wh/mi. Also, that it wanted you to charge so quickly is just finding a place to charge to get you to destination at about 10%, which I never like. I always charge to 80% at stops...

    OEM CCS adapter now available to order in North America, Retrofit for older cars coming in 2023

    I have a 2019 M#LR and it said I need a retrofit, available in 2023, but in Tesla terminology, that means at least 2025.

    Bad 48 amp charge feature not included in battery warranty

    Thanks for correcting me. It was long ago, so I was just going by my memory, which clearly needs some adjustments. I was kinda close though ;-)

    Bad 48 amp charge feature not included in battery warranty

    I got my M3 LR AWD in May 2019. At the time, the M3 LR RWD, which they called the MR was available as a special order only. You could not do it on the website, but at a "showroom." I was interested in it due to the cheaper price, but in the end the wait for the MR and the fact I live in a snowy...

    2022.16.1.2 Radio Scroll Issue

    It is also baffling to me that they do not know that this is a problem. Typical of any customer service. They are out of touch with the world. It started ONLY with the latest update for multiple people, yet they either deny it had anything to do with the update or this is the first they are...

    Is a RWD / Standard Model 3 ok for a 140 Mile daily commute?

    I checked climate for Asheville NC and you might be surprised at how much range you lose November through February. Typically 20%, but up to 40% if you are heavy footed, and who isn't sometimes in a Tesla? You like your job probably, but someone did mention, what if you lose your job or are...

    What is the "Streaming" app, exactly?

    If you stop paying from the premium streaming, you will also lose Spotify. For Spotify, you need a paid version of Spotify AND premium connectivity. Things you will lose if you stop paying from premium connectivity include all streaming services, web browser and live traffic maps (but those suck...

    Charge Point Home Flex feedback

    I only mentioned because a friend made his own holder and did not plug it into the unit. Then he got the light (red?) after a few weeks and thought it died. Called ChargePoint and they determined that it not being plugged in caused it to fault. Maybe it was only his case, but it did happen.
  36. garth_angst

    Charge Point Home Flex feedback

    You might have a problem not plugging the plug back into the unit. The ChargePoint may fault after a while with I think a red LED light because it doesn't "see" the handle back in the holster. It doesn't happen right away. Can take days, but it may happen. Remember, you heard it here, so you...

    Tesla Wall Connector Price Drop to $400 from $495 [04/28/2022]

    If you are going for the 100 amp breaker, then maybe. I don't know anything about that, but for 50 amp breaker, which most people do, then I don't see a cost savings with a second mobile connector.

    Tesla Wall Connector Price Drop to $400 from $495 [04/28/2022]

    Actually, it costs less to install a Wall Connector as with a 14-50 outlet, you will need a good NEMA 14-50 outlet, not a piece of *sugar* from Home Depot. Hardwiring doesn't incur that cost.

    Slow leak in tire

    I went back to All Weather. Not leaking from patch. They said there is an issue with the Michelins with foam that they slowly separate down the middle of the tread. I will just deal with until these foam tires come back in stock or I decide to forego the foam and just get the non-foam version.

    Slow leak in tire

    Thanks, but with a few pounds every month or two, I don't mind. Let's see if that changes in the cold winter. So far it hasn't.

    Slow leak in tire

    Yep, that's what I finally did. It was a very thin nail that was smoothed out by how long it was in there, so I couldn't feel it. Finally found a tire shop that services Tesla's. They patched it (they do not plug). Much better, but still super slow leak. Couple of pounds every month or two...

    Did all Model 3 get “Up Next” in the media with V11

    Should I pay a bit more at home or Supercharge?

    Are you sure? Most people just see Delivery Charge and think that is the cost of electricity. There is also a power supply charge. They make the bills pretty difficult to figure out rates. But maybe your bill is very clear and doesn't have numbers and charges all over the place. In NY, we have...

    Model 3 LR low range

    I have had my car since May 2019 and for me, I no notice no range loss or higher kWh/mi with the A/C. In the summer, I generally get under 210 kWh/mi on my drives. Adding the A/C adds maybe 1 kWh/mi for those same drives. Heat is another story.

    Where did USB music go in Software 11?

    Yup, I put in a new USB and it worked. Too much of a coincidence that it worked the day before v11 update. I do not recall ever reading that you should remove a USB drive before doing any updated to prevent damage
  48. garth_angst

    Where did USB music go in Software 11?

    That is where I looked too, but nothing. I was playing USB music just two days ago, so I know my device is good and the port is good, unless something in the update hosed it. I removed it and plugged it back in too. I know they made a requirement that USB had to be formatted a certain way for...

    Where did USB music go in Software 11?

    When I click the [...] icon, it shows a bunch of "apps" like Spotify, streaming, browser, etc. but none are USB. I rebooted car, no change.
