    Tesla FSD Beta Twitter Drama from Elon Musk

    That is the part I was referring to. I suppose it depends on how you want to interpret the definition of the word "stack" in this context. The parking lot stack will be added to the "FSD Stack." The FSD stack makes it sound like stack = 1 thing. The "stack" is many things layered and glued...

    Tesla FSD Beta Twitter Drama from Elon Musk

    Sorry I took so long to respond. So to clarify my statement and why I made it... As I said I make no claim to having inside knowledge of Tesla as they have strong opinions on sharing data outside the company (NDAs, legal drama, etc). But I can say I have some friends/colleagues that work in this...

    All Tesla Owners in U.S. and Canada With a Safety Score of 80+ Will Receive FSD Beta Tomorrow!

    It's 100 miles on AP in the last 30 days. But yes I believe if you are already on 2022.28 you wont get it either until a later release.

    Lucid Air Grand Touring vs Tesla Model S Plaid.

    I think the yoke itself is fine and fun to drive. The lack of stalks looks nice. The problem is turn signals moving position make it very difficult to signal while in a mid turn. I don't miss the wheel on my yoke at all. One handed turning is completely fine and comfortable, I never miss the...

    Model S Plaid First Impressions: Ordering through Delivery

    Mine did come with it. That being said I ordered it prior to them making the announcement. They're supposed to not include them for orders after a certain date but mine should have (and did) come with one anyway. Not sure if S and X will be affected otherwise in the future. I haven't used it yet...

    Model S Plaid First Impressions: Ordering through Delivery

    An update... they haven't rescheduled/cancelled my latest service appointment yet. Hopefully I will finally get my delivery issues fixed 7 weeks into owning the car. Fingers crossed for Thursday this week.

    Model S Plaid First Impressions: Ordering through Delivery

    Lol well my old car was "graphite" (similar to the MSM which I got). I almost got the blue but my wife's car is a very similar blue and I thought it'd be weird to have two cars of the same color (she didn't and still thinks we should have picked the blue. I'll let her get that for her Model X)...

    Model S Plaid First Impressions: Ordering through Delivery

    Well Tesla notified me today, they're pushing back my service appointment another 2 1/2 weeks to August 4th. Apparently these parts exist for them to build new cars but they don't want to let me have any to fix my defects from delivery. I am starting to understand all the complaints about Tesla...

    Model S Plaid First Impressions: Ordering through Delivery

    So you're saying I should use the trunk adjusters for how it closes/seats to try and align it better with the taillights? I'll take a look and see if I can fix it that way.

    Model S Plaid First Impressions: Ordering through Delivery

    Lol thanks. Yea the taillights I was like...well... basically all of them are like that so.... not sure complaining will get me anywhere.

    Model S Plaid First Impressions: Ordering through Delivery

    After a few weeks with my car I am finally getting around to writing up my experience. TL;DR: Delivery meh. Car good. :D Ordering I first ordered my Model S Plaid in early January. The most difficult aspect was deciding on colors because it can be hard to tell from looking online. I went to...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    In Texas, because it's illegal for them to sell them direct.. you have to pay in full (or with financing "finished") days before your delivery date. I also was required to have proof of insurance 3 days prior to my pickup date because they do the temporary registration for you (which requires...

    I picked up at a SC and I wasn't allowed to open the car to inspect inside before accepting it. I argued for several minutes with them and finally I gave in since they confirmed they'll fix anything I find wrong inside after acceptance. There were some issues on the interior and they did...

    I received my 479 over the weekend. I also had the secondary shifting button problem (the plastic is messed up so you see the D all the time even when not illuminated). Also my driver side A pillar was not connected properly it was coming off (I think the clips are broken). Scheduled with...

    I was supposed to pickup on Tuesday. I got a phone call this morning that it's ready now. Picked up my Plaid a few hours ago. A few minor issues they have to resolve but drove it home, don't expect a long service visit when I get the issues resolved. I plan on writing up a post to go over...

    So in the last few months the financial markets have had a bunch of downward movement. Tesla raised their financing rates (3.74% is currently "normal" for Tesla, they wont go lower than that). The amount of money they'll provide likely depends on the individual. A few months ago it was easy for...

    Must be nice. I think I'm on the naughty list because I ordered in January...they tried to give me a car in February but I passed since I knew about the upcoming headlight stuff. Then in March after the new headlights came out I took my hold off, they tried to match me with an older VIN...

    Took my order off hold this week. Estimated Delivery: August 08 - October 03. I expect it to move in but I don't think I'll get it as fast as I was hoping (last 2 times I received a VIN very quickly but I kept refusing because I wanted the 2.0 refresh). Fingers crossed :)

    Bad Service Center Experience

    I assume it only rattles when driving? Were they able to drive around with you? I suppose they might require a recording before they're willing to do that. Was this the new south SC or was this the northern one?

    From Starlink with Love - TMC Podcast #3

    Appreciate the feedback. I wouldn't say that there is misinformation, just that I left a few things out and maybe misinterpreted what the OP was asking about specifically. You're right that there are some cars with MCU1 and HW2. But MCU1 cars predate HW2 as well and the person posting the quest...

    It's a running joke that just wont die. There are no new hinges, just ignore these comments :P

    When to put on hold?

    Current policy (as far as I’m aware) is limited to 90 days from order date. So that’s the longest they’ll usually hold for. Otherwise you lose the deposit and have to order again (back of the line).

    next updates I expect... (software) yoke center horn enabled instead of the button. (hardware) new HW4.0 for next generation FSD. I have zero insider info to back this up so there is no evidence to support this, but based on when the HW4 processors were being manufactured I'd guess sometime...

    I ordered in January. They tried to give me one first week of Feb. I knew refresh headlight were coming so I declined and put on hold. Then took off hold this week, they gave me another one to pick up next week (also not new lights) so I put it on hold again. Plaid orders don't take nearly as...

    My plaid order is back on hold. Called them this morning to release the VIN. I suppose I'm going to wait a few more weeks before I try to get my updated headlight/taillight plaid.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    cool I guess I should wait till they call me to confirm and I tell them nope? Or will the VIN not change and I should just call them right away? Lol I had until next month to keep it "paused" I just figured I'd roll the dice.
  41. N

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    So I reactivated my order this week and I already have a VIN slated to deliver next week. I'm assuming this VIN is not a refresh as I believe the number is too low. 5YJSA1E63NF468239. That has to end with 472*** to be the "refresh" headlights right?

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    My original order (Plaid) said ~4 weeks or so. Then it told me like 3 months out.... and the dates shuffled around multiple times (all pretty far away)...and then in the end, with very little notice, they did end up giving me a VIN with a delivery date at like week 4. I released the VIN and...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Since the new headlights and whatnot started shipping I reactivated my order. Current ETA says June 03 - July 01. If it behaves like the last one, it'll shrink and move forward. Only time will tell :)

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    It seems to be somewhat polarizing, almost like the white seats/interior. Personally I'm glad my plaid does not have wood trim. But there are some folks that definitely prefer it. Despite variety being the spice of life, Tesla Plaids fall into the camp of "too bad it only comes like this." And...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Lol, I know you're joking but to be clear for others who may not realize it, there are no more wood trims in the newer Plaids. That was a temporary thing last year when they were having supply issues for carbon fiber. Model S has wood, Model S Plaid only carbon fiber.

    Different color but mine was also out of the blue today. Was slated for end of March and then boom today I had a VIN. I noped right the hell out of there.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Model S Plaids are prioritized because they cost more. More expensive the car, shorter the wait. I was originally told 2-6 weeks when I ordered it. Then the EDD was in April....then March...and now it was ready to be delivered (so that 2-6 weeks window wasn't wrong in the end).

    Update on my end. Model S Plaid. Ordered on January 8th. Most recent EDD was March 10-31st. Today they gave me a VIN and updated it to EDD January 30th-Feb 05th. As exciting as this is for me, I decided to unmatch the car and have them mark me as ineligible. I'm going to try to drag it a few...
