    The wait is over! (Almost!)

    Got the car a week ago and went straight to get full body xpel wrap and ceramic coating. Debating on plasti dipping wheels to gloss black. Does anyone have a picture of Blue with gloss black wheels? Also what is this cable? I couldn’t figure it out.

    The wait is over! (Almost!)

    Well, getting my Model X tomorrow morning. I got a call today that it's ready and could come today if I wanted to, but I was far from the place. So, I'll be taking my old 2013 MS to trade in tomorrow and will be like a kid in candy store. I was a bit nervous about for last few days, as I hadn't...

    New Model X Configuration and Pricing

    Ugh.. I just spoke to folks at Tysons... I was told they won't put deposit to a new car. But, if I upgrade to 100D, they will make a "special request". I ordered my 75D with PUP, so exact same config now is cheaper. My car hasn't even gone in production, but a VIN assigned. It would only be...

    From what I was told, it is supposed to be in Bloomingdales garage and is supposed to be the largest supercharger in the country. They are expecting to be a total of 40 stalls.

    New DC Metro Supercharger Plans-2018

    Well, in Tesla world, I'll believe it when I see it:rolleyes:. We all know how Tesla is about these things. But, the manager said they had been talking to Tesla about it for 4 - 6 months, and this was 3 months ago. I have monthly parking there and he sees my car often, so he shared. Hopefully...

    New DC Metro Supercharger Plans-2018

    Spoke to a manager of the garage in columbia heights. He said Tesla is planning on putting the superchargers in that garage. I REALLY hope they don't put it in that garage, but sounds like all the talks have pretty much been done and finalized. There is no cell phone service in that garage and...

    Official: Model S Service Plans

    There are 2 things... warranty and service plan. Service plan covers wiper blades, annual maintenance and things like that. Warranty covers issues with the car.. such as door handles, computer screen or any other issues you might have. You can extend the warranty on the car before 4 yr / 50k...

    Heater - doesn't.

    You shouldn't have to take it in ... they should be able to push the firmware over the air. Although loaner with autopilot does sound tempting! :biggrin:

    Heater - doesn't.

    Call SC.. it's a known issue. I had this happen to me twice... reboot fixed it the first time but then happened again off and on. I was FREEZING and had heated seats on. There is a firmware update available for it. My SC sent a message to engineers to push a firmware update and it's been working...

    Milage is 34K, I have done range charge maybe 4 times, used superchargers less than 10 times. Headliner is white. Tint is 35% .. don't remember which one.. I know it's the one that doesn't interfere with GPS and satellite radio.

    Fairfax County property tax appeal

    I have a 2013 MS. I wrote an email while back to Fairfax county and they reduced my tax and said that they incorrectly based the price and my new tax assessed price is 69,000 (base price of MS 85 at that time). Here is a paragraph from the email below.. "After careful research it was determined...

    Does the Windshield Glass tint?

    I would rather have the base (black box behind mirror in which camera and sensors are) be .5" bigger on any side, if needed, and remove the wiring. That extra space can be used to house a small solar panel and a small battery. Battery can provide power to sensors and camera for up to 48 hours...

    Dipping my car pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

    That's nice.. I have been thinking about dipping my car as well and changing the color. Question... I have xpel ultimate clear bra and cquartz... do you think dip will stick on top of that?

    Official Model S Child Seat Thread - reviews, pictures, and discussion

    You can only latch 2 seats on the outsides.. not the center. While I feel latch system will me much sturdier than seat belt, I am also a bit nervous about putting infant on the sides. However, I talked to a tesla tech today and he stated that he has installed seats on the side without a problem...

    Official Model S Child Seat Thread - reviews, pictures, and discussion

    So, I am looking for some advise here. I have a baby on the way (any minute now) and we purchased the Aton Q infant car seat. It has a great latch system to install the seat, however Tesla only has the latches on the sides and not in the middle. I would like to use the latch system, but I have...

    Superchargers in VA

    Thats nice! I got mine in the morning. I don't think there was anybody else picking up a car around that time. I'll PM you my contact info if you are interested in borrowing the adapter.

    Error on Tune In

    hmm.. thanks for the replies. I just wasn't sure if it was the cellular coverage, or somebody (At&t, Tesla or Tunein) throttling it down on purpose.

    Error on Tune In

    I was listening to tunein radio and got this error twice last week. Has anybody else received this error? I had full 3g coverage and full lte on my at&t phone.

    CHAdeMO Adapter Rental Website

    Sorry all, been a bit busy with work. Shipping is a bit much because of the size and weight of the adapter plus insurance for it. The box is 28x7x6 and weighs about 8lbs. So, shipping back and forth isn't cheap (as cgiGuy mentioned) . Since I get a good discount with UPS at my work, I will be...

    CHAdeMO Adapter Rental Website

    I do believe majority of owners wouldn't be using it on day to day basis and only on routes where there aren't superchargers. I am making the site initially for CHAdeMO adapters only but probably add other things down the road. Hence, teslaaccessoriesrental.com. Also, I am not planning on making...

    Model S: Alarm system and dimming mirrors?

    I can tell you for a fact that the alarm doesn't go off if somebody just smashes your window (personal experience! :cursing:) However, if the door is opened, then yes it does. But, if somebody just has to do a a smash and grab... it wouldn't matter if you have alarm or not. Within few seconds...

    Child seats #[email protected]#&!!!

    Let me start off by saying that I have never installed a car seat, so not sure. But here in US, you can take the car to the local firehouse, who have certified technicians to install car seats. Maybe you might want to do that? Not sure how things are in Canada. Also, next week when I am at the...

    How to get to snowshoe?

    I am guessing you will take 64.. and cross over to 81? According to plugshare, there is a tesla owner with HPWC in staunton, right after you cross over 81 ( I have never tried it or contacted the owner). If you have dual chargers, a quick stop there could help you get there without a problem...

    Supercharger - Buffalo, NY

    yea.. I doubt this site will be anywhere close to up and running even till end of Jan. The impression I had was that Tesla will ramp up supercharger installs in north east in november and december... guess not. @jrreno.. thanks for the pic!

    Supercharger - Buffalo, NY

    Are there any updates to this supercharger? I thought they were going to try to "rush" this site. The supercharge.info page still shows permit stage and not under construction.

    Any plans for Superchargers in Richmond VA or Norfolk VA?

    I normally prefer taking exit 156 on PW Pkwy, and make a left on Telegraph Rd. There is almost never any traffic there and it's only 1 red light to deal with to get to the SC.

    Question about UMC

    you are correct, you will need a small sub panel. But it will also give a back up in case HPWC or 14-50 goes down.

    Question about UMC

    If you have space in breaker for 100 amp breaker, I would strongly suggest you get a 100 amp breaker for HPWC and appropriate wiring done. Then in HPWC, there are pins, that you can set to for charging at 40 amps. You can also get a 14-50 outlet installed next to it, to use as a back up (on the...

    Question about UMC

    A disconnect switch is not required and as far as I know, you can leave the UMC plugged in 24/7. I would recommend having a back up outlet installed as well, in case your outlet fails. I have had to replace two HPWC and with no back up outlet, I was not a happy camper. Just a thought.

    How has supercharger capacity been this turkey day?

    Just drove by the SC in woodbridge (few hours ago), parking lot was full all around and 4 of the stalls were ICEd. It was pretty pathetic!

    Decreasing rated range.

    I have been talking to the SC about my decreased rated range and they sent the logs to the engineers. The reply I got was "its the calculations in the firmware and should be corrected with next firmware update." Right now I have about 17K miles on it, 1 year old and at 80% of daily charging, I...

    It happened once before with my Acura. Yea.. got it fixed. Just have to get the window tinted now.

    Car alarm.........car alarm?

    The alarm is there in the car. However, if somebody breaks your window and doesn't open the door, the alarm doesn't go off and you don't get any notifications. (speaking from experience :cursing::mad:)

    Good security system

    @swegman... thats exactly what I am looking for also. Just a sensor for windows.. but haven't found that by itself. @Canuck.. I agree with you completely. DC courts and cops are horrible with that as well. It wasn't clearly visible.. it was on the floor behind driver seat. The thing is .. i was...

    Good security system

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I talked to the service center yesterday and today when I dropped off the car for repairs. The alarm will only go off, if the car is locked and the door is somehow opened. So, if a window is broken and door not opened, the alarm won't go off. So, now i am...

    Thats interesting. But unfortunately, that wasn't the case with me as my laptop bag was stolen. I had cameras mounted on front and back and got a pretty good picture of the person who did it and ran away with it. :(

    Good security system

    This might be a rare question, but wondering if anybody has put an after market alarm system on their Model S. My car got broken into this afternoon and the car's alarm didnt even go off. I was under the impression that the car has an alarm system. Apparently, if somebody breaks your window and...

    How to reach Avon, Cape Hatteras, NC with an S85

    Do you plan on completing this trip in one day or you plan on spending the night somewhere in the middle? Longest stretch would be from montreal to albany super charger. (I am not sure where exactly in canada you are coming from). Montreal to Albany is about 220 miles which shouldn't be a...

    NY area meetup..... Saturday june 7th, 2014 @ 11am

    I hope you get a good turn out. I would love to come, but won't be able to as I am 6 hours away. I am not sure what turn out you will get, as there is a sociability run in WV that weekend as well. Maybe bunch of tesla owners are going to that? Maybe not?!. Maybe one day when I am in NY, I'll try...

    Dead HPWC

    @JdCleary ... yes I did try that and it didn't work. I am not sure what connections you are talking about. The ones in the breaker itself or something in HPWC? @Chipper... Yes, I did try that and nothing happened. I did open the front cover to see if I could catch something in there, but...

    Dead HPWC

    I put my car on range charge on thursday night and come friday morning, when i went to the car, it only had 150 miles of charge. My HPWC had no light on and nothing was working. The breaker wasn't tripped either. So, I reset the breaker and still nothing. Luckily, there was a supercharger 90...
