    Hello! Congrats, no doubt you will have fun with this great car. I've had my S85D for about 15 months now, never encountered the need for a Chademo adapter. Actually, outside home, I was always able to charge at Superchargers, except one time at a hotel who provided a 16A outlet. I guess it will...

    Great news! Thanks for sharing :-)

    Isn't it weird, from a risk perspective? Using the smart phone app, you can get your car to move forward or backward without having any visibility of the car, from far away, e.g. from within a building, from another city or country... At least with the keyfob, you would have to be relatively...

    Pas sûr que les choses aillent dans la bonne direction, pourtant: http://money.cnn.com/2015/12/16/autos/tesla-tax-denmark-norway/ ... Le problème principal des gouvernements semble être de garder un flux financier entrant constant plutôt que de diminuer les émissions, COP21 ou pas.

    Same experience with charging: home 16A plug + superchargers have always been enough so far. I did check the conditions of some public charging services and was shocked by the prices. MOVE, for example: CHF 96.00 per year for the subscription, CHF 0.50 per kWh for "normal" points, CHF 0.80 per...

    I fully agree: I find the new display way better than the old one. Uncluttered, not a source of distraction at all. When I want to know something, a quick glance usually gives the answer. Especially glad they removed the speed dial, which was not helping at all, with all "normal" speeds gathered...

    Got it on Sunday morning. I have limited experience with it so far, but am rather positively surprised. It works really well on the motorway, including the blinker-initiated lane change, which feels quite safe. To me, one thing does not feel so safe: the positioning of the car within the...

    Hello! I got Michelin Alpin ones. Very silent. Don't know about their grip on snow, as there wasn't any yet ;-) Good luck!

    Jantes et pneus neige

    Hello! J'ai acheté seulement les pneus d'hiver, le montage est fait par mon commerce de pneus habituel, qui stocke aussi mes pneus de l'autre saison. Tout baigne, pas besoin d'avoir deux jeux de roues à mon avis. J'ai d'ailleurs déjà fait mettre les pneus d'hiver, ils font marginalement plus de...

    Tesla insurance in switzerland

    Hi Max, I'm using La Vaudoise for my 85D. 0 CHF deductible for civil insurance (40% of basis) 300 CHF deductible for collision (including parking damage & lights, 30% of basis) Yearly cost: 1475.70 CHF. Of course, canton, age, gender all have an influence, I guess... Réjane

    European Model S typical consumption?

    My lifetime average (soon 10000 km) is 196 wH/km. That's for a daily commute which includes a 500 m height difference, down then up, on the motorway. With summer temperatures, TACC usually set at 125 km/h on the motorway.

    Bjørn's Tesla Model S videos

    I really enjoyed the Race #2 Video, although I must stay it was very stressful at times. Two moments were almost unbearable: Jorgen eating the Rice-Cream, Bjorn with 0 km battery remaining. How could you!!??! :scared:

    La haine :-(

    Ça fait mal, vraiment... La même chose m'était arrivée avec ma voiture précédente, le "pourquoi" m'avait bien torturée. Une fois réparé, on n'y pense plus, sauf qu'on se demande toujours si telle ou telle place de parc est vraiment sûre... :crying:

    Thank you :-)! It's the Langgletscher, above the Anenhütte, Lötschental. Very nice circular hike starting from the parking lot at Fafleralp. If you go, let me know if you enjoy it! Regarding music: FLAC on USB sounds indeed better than mp3 on USB, and much better than mp3 over bluetooth. What...

    Front seat belts rub against neck - very bothersome

    It really sounds like you need to try raising the seat, even if this new position takes some getting used to. I'm rather short (160 cm) and have no problem with the seat belt rubbing. My seat is adjusted quite high, which also gives me better visibility on things.

    Hi TMS, Congratulations on your order! I have my Model S since end of April 2015. To me, there is no bad choice of options. It is simply a great car, in any color and with or without bells and whistles. This weekend, the car just brought me there: And then, while it was being supercharged in...

    Hello, Congratulations! Just for comparison, I had a 16A socket installed in my garage, the total cost (including necessary changes to the "tableau") was CHF 1027. This included work & materials. I had a written proposal by the local electricity provider, they did the work quite fast and it is...

    No longer any ICE at home - experiences?

    I see what you mean... I tend to be very tolerant when strange things happen with my car. Like yesterday the touchscreen didn't feel my touch any more, and the display said I should check with a Tesla Service Center. I just rebooted and it worked fine again. But how would someone with a lesser...

    Congratulation to your dad! It will feel great for him to see his pioneering efforts going (somewhat) mainstream and be part of it more than the other owners.

    Ask German, get French

    Quite funny :-) Actually, whatever I ask my car to play, I usually get the answer that he/she doesn't understand what I mean. There must be something with my accent that has not been programmed into its otherwise übersmart brain... I gave up on voice commands altogether for now.

    Be prepared for Murphy's Law when you buy your Model S

    I understand you completely. Just the same for me. Each time I got a new car, I was a bit more nervous the few first weeks, but then it passed, without any incident or accident. With this one, things are not that smooth, I seem way more nervous. And the curse is there: I dropped my e-bike...

    Hi there, Tesla owners in Switzerland! I am very happy with my Model S 85D, received at the end of April. What I'm struggling with is the fiscal situation around this great vehicle. To summarize: - An owner of a Tesla Model S 85 will pay 0 CHF during the first 3 years of ownership, CHF 492 per...

    Very illogical decision on a very logical reasoned company?

    Hello necho, Your arguments make a lot of sense to me and I understand your irritation, especially since you have been a long time customer. I am a new customer, waiting for delivery of an S85D in late March, with a difference of about 5% between the contractually agreed price and the new...

    Durée de vie des batteries

    Bonjour ST598, Heureuse de lire que tu es satisfait de ton achat et que le comportement sur neige est ok même sans dual motor. Comme le prix de cette voiture est nettement au dessus de ce que je consens normalement à dépenser pour de la tôle sur 4 roues, j'ai dû être très raisonnable au niveau...

    Owner paying higher tax for Roadster than for Ferrari in CH

    David99: Thank you for defending my country, which I also dearly love, by the way. It is nevertheless a federal state, where each canton establishes its own rules. For the time being, Tesla lovers leaving in canton Aargau are simply less lucky than those who happen to live in other cantons. The...

    Owner paying higher tax for Roadster than for Ferrari in CH

    They're 200% cute. They deserve the best :biggrin:. But won't the seats feel tight? Wouldn't they be more comfortable and safe in the usual dog cages?
