    Current state of Smart summon?

    I use Smart Summon every so often at work but it doesn't work as many times as it does. I typically back into a space on the side of the parking lot, so in theory all it should have to do is pull out, turn left, and drive straight. Instead, it likes to pull out, turn left, turn right, stop, back...

    MPG equivalent using Tesla supercharger is very low

    When I got my M3 about a month ago, I used the supercharger in Lexington, VA and it cost me $8.00 for 150 miles of range. Your mileage may vary... literally!

    MASTER THREAD: all Smart Summon-related posts go here

    I use it in my parking lot at work some times. It's 50/50 on awesome vs. annoying. Sometimes it pulls out and drives straight to me. Other times, I watch it turn the wheels the WRONG way, and it starts going away from me, then stops, then turns even sharper away from me, and I'm like, where the...

    Weaker regenerative braking with 2019.36.2.1

    When it is cold, regen is partially disabled because cold batteries can't accept the large influx of power. I see you are in Virginia, I am as well. I recently got that update and it got really cold pretty much the next day or the day after, so I have not been able to use the hold feature hardly...

    Tesla V10 software update rollout: post here if you are still waiting

    I'm on day 9 of ownership and still have not received an update, so the theory that Tesla waits until after the return period to send updates is out. I sent in a service ticket a few days ago, and received this response yesterday: "Hello Evan, I would be happy to help with your inquiry about...

    Silver metallic model 3 [Update: “Midnight Silver Metallic”, not a new color]

    I only see Midnight Silver Metallic, not the original silver color. This may be what OP is referring to, in which case this has been an optional color all along.

    Tesla V10 software update rollout: post here if you are still waiting

    I just picked up my Model 3 LR AWD FSD today, brand new. Still on V9, 2019.27.103. I feel like this is at least one update behind. Connected it to WiFi and it says it's up to date.

    Tesla glass: corners were cut

    I've been driving for 15 years. My windshield was never damaged in any of my vehicles until 6 months ago, my Jeep Wrangler got the windshield cracked beyond repair, hit with a 2x4 kicked up off the interstate by another vehicle, and cracked by another rock less than a month after getting it...

    Can someone sell me on the black interior!?

    I had a very similar thought process. I thought I wanted the white, but the wife ended up talking me out of it for the above reasons. Additionally, she was worried about us getting sick of it over time. White might be fun and cool now, but in 2 years? 5? Black, on the other hand, is guaranteed...

    Want to buy a X but can’t decide

    I found that Tesla had as good as a rate as my local credit unions, so YMMV there.

    Trade-in Timing

    I put my deposit down on an inventory Model 3 last night. I am selling my 2015 Jeep Wrangler to cover much of the cost, however, Tesla's offer was very low, so I am considering selling to a dealership or to my dad. I am in a rural area so CarMax/Carvana/etc is out of the question. I got a text...

    Help me decide if I buy FSD this weekend, or not! ONCE AND FOR ALL.

    I know there are a lot of unknowns about FSD, but only a couple people have noted that there are already features there today that make it worth considering. Primarily auto-lane change. I know NoA can be a bit finnicky, but in my limited experience, auto-lane change was a commute game changer. I...

    Did you have to convince your significant other?

    I am in the same boat. I think I have the wife convinced, but it's definitely a hard sell going from no car payment to a car payment. We can easily afford it, and don't have any kids, but I was the last one to get a new car. Her biggest hesitancy was that she wanted a new car first. I told her I...

    What's the most surprising thing you've found once you got your Tesla?

    My father in law is like this. I can hear him yelling about Tesla in the background whenever my wife calls her mother. I don't like talking politics on the internet, but it's a politics thing.

    National Drive Electric Events Sept 14 - 22, 2019

    Good idea. This may end up being quite an expensive weekend. Haha.

    National Drive Electric Events Sept 14 - 22, 2019

    I am going to the event in Blacksburg, VA with my wife this weekend. I am hoping that getting her inside a Tesla will push her over the edge. It's the next best thing to driving one, but our closest Tesla store is almost 3 hours away!

    Whats going on with used MX inventory

    I've noticed this as well. One car that I really like has popped up 3 times.

    Used 2018 LR vs new 2019 SR+

    Same. New LR is a bit out of my price range at the moment but I may snap at any moment and just get one in a color I like. Haha.
