    Supercharger - North Aurora, IL

    The new ones were put in immediately to the west of the existing, old ones. You can always tell the 250 kW units from the 150 kW ones because, ironically, the plug-in cables are thinner in the higher power 250 kW chargers. (Smaller, my understanding is, because they are liquid cooled.)

    Supercharger - North Aurora, IL

    It's 8 & 8 — the old ones are 150 kW, the new ones are 250 kW. @Chuq @corywright @MarcoRP

    Supercharger - Elgin, IL

    Can verify it’s up & running. Charging right now. @Chuq @MarcoRP

    Supercharger - Ann Arbor, MI

    There was a game, and yeah, I think that is probably correct. Thanks!

    Thanks. Super appreciated.

    Supercharger - Ann Arbor, MI

    Anyone know what’s going on at the Ann Arbor supercharger? It’s shown 0 chargers available for the past 6-8 hours. Is it just crazy busy, or is something else going on? Would def appreciate any insights as my wife is traveling there & it’s her first ever time to go on her own. She’s a Nervous...

    Looks like South Barrington is up & running. This can't be far behind. Any updates?

    What is it, a poltergeist?

    I have to be honest, I don't really remember the resolution to this although it didn't stick around very long -- like with it appearing, it just sort of went away. Although a software update may have put things to rest for good. I don't really think the 12V battery had anything to do with it...

    Unresponsive driver window. Reset options?

    Didn’t have an opportunity to try the mysterious 3rd option. Had an “interesting” drive yesterday with it being very windy & the window cracked open slightly, totally nonfunctional. Went to the car this morning, and the window miraculously was back to functioning normally. I don’t have an...

    Unresponsive driver window. Reset options?

    Please excuse me — I've been scurrying around trying to get ready for this drive & and didn't take the time to think things through. I appreciate your taking the time to try to assist.

    Unresponsive driver window. Reset options?

    Tried all of those. No joy. Was hoping there was something else.

    Unresponsive driver window. Reset options?

    The driver window on my 2017 Model X has stopped functioning. It's basically stuck in the ⅛" - ¼" down position it goes to when the door is typically opened. Is there a way to reset this to regain functionality? I've got a 300 mile drive ahead of me today & would greatly like to resolve this...

    32% drop in range (winter in MN)

    Yeah, I use TeslaFi. It’s a web app — go to teslafi.com. I highly recommend it.

    32% drop in range (winter in MN)

    I'm attaching the temp efficiency of my Model X 100D. You can see, there's a pretty significant effect. In my experience, outside temperature and the wind (headwind vs tailwind) have the biggest effect on efficiency. Range mode, driving with the heat set really low, not using the a/c when it's...

    Supercharger - Michigan City, IN

    Anybody have any updates? (Not that it matters much, we're stuck at home "sheltering in place.") Just curious. Stay safe everybody!
  16. Torqueria

    Worst case energy efficiency scenario?

    Here's the worst I've experienced in a Model X — not too terribly much elevation gain, but the temp was quite low & resulted in efficiency under 50%. Pretty brutal.

    Supercharger - Bolingbrook, IL

    @MarcoRP looks like it might be time to update the details about the Bollingbrook supercharger — 16 stalls, 8 of which are 250kW.

    1st long distance trip 2020 MX LR

    I think after your first long-distance trip, you'll realize how it's really not a big deal at all. My first time, I was all jacked up with BRP & trying to make sure everything was all-good. Now I just get in & go, mindful, of course, of where the superchargers are along my route. Here are a...

    It's a 2017. Manufactured in September of that year.

    Model X - Trunk Rattle Solved

    Shiftelectrics, you are totally my hero! This rattle had been driving me crazy, particularly on long road trips. I even took a service technician out for a drive last week so he could hear it. Hear it he did, but I later got a text message from my service advisor saying that they couldn't find...

    Model X consumption on 22inch versus 20inch, not all that bad.

    Also, the tires themselves play a pretty significant role. I put in snow tires this winter & while it’s hard to quantify exactly, I’d bet they added a good 5 to 10% increase in consumption just by themselves.
  22. Torqueria

    Model X consumption on 22inch versus 20inch, not all that bad.

    Having just completed a 2900 mile road trip, I must respectfully disagree. In my experience, wind is a giant factor. 80 mph with a 15 mph tailwind is like going 65 mph. Temp is also a huge factor. Nothing you can do to recover the efficiency loss of traveling at 30 degrees.

    3/Y size comparison (gif)

    Yeah, the specs would most definitely be helpful! Can’t remember where I read it, but somehow got it in my head the the 3 and the Y had the same wheelbase. They may, but obviously we don’t know that for certain.
  24. Torqueria

    3/Y size comparison (gif)

    Here's another perspective — done quick & dirty in Photoshop. Not perfect, but helpful, I think, at getting a good idea about relative sizes. One thing I thought was interesting was that the eye point in the Y seems to be slightly forward of the one in the 3. Although that could just be a driver...

    Supercharger - Bolingbrook, IL

    Thank you. Good to hear about the likely expansion. Seems like that’s a very busy location. Maybe they’ll surprise us with some V3 stalls.

    I did the exact same thing!

    Supercharger - Bolingbrook, IL

    Anyone know what's going on with this Supercharger location? On my in-vehicle map, instead of the usual Supercharger icon, there's a white circle with a line through it and when I tap on it, it says "restricted" or something to that effect. What does that mean?

    Top 30 IIHS safety picks. None from Tesla

    The article indicates the manufacturers have to “nominate” their vehicles for consideration. How ridiculous & outrageous. So, the Boston Red Sox aren’t one of baseball’s best teams if they don’t nominate their team for consideration? Give it up, IIHS.

    Software Update 2018.40.x

    What version are you upgrading from? I noticed a significant degradation in AutoPilot lane tracking performance in 2018.36 and was hoping that would be resolved or at least improved in 2018.40. Anyone with any insights into what's going on to cause the performance reduction?

    10/16/18 Is LTE out?

    Looks like it's back up here in the western Chicago suburbs as well.
  31. Torqueria

    Bug or Feature?

    I'd be willing to bet that it's a "feature" meant to incentivize you not to do that. It probably has its origins in the pics and videos we've all seen of the bozos in the back seat of their Tesla with it on Autopilot.

    Michigan Superchargers (location speculation, discussion)

    The flakiness continues. Charged here twice this weekend. Once on Friday when it seemed to be working normally, and once on Sunday when I had to try 3 different chargers before one would work. It was getting a fair amount of use, too. Anywhere from 3 to 5 vehicles there the entire time I was...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA (Qualcomm / Pacific Heights Blvd., 12 V2 stalls)

    Completely agree. I had been stressing about a recent trip to Orlando due to the lack of a super convenient Supercharger. Turns out the place we stayed at had unadvertised destination charging, and I never even went to a Supercharger in Orlando. That & 3 destination chargers on the way down &...

    Supercharger - San Diego, CA (Qualcomm / Pacific Heights Blvd., 12 V2 stalls)

    Love the Dana Carvey/W reference. Plus, like your logic. Limited charging locations/options take a bit of ingenuity at times. Seems like you've definitely got it figured out. Kudos. Dan Quayle, still gaining acceptance (different Bush, same Carvey).

    Supercharger - Chicago, IL (South Canal Street)

    There's a Starbucks across the street, but you won't be able to get any validation there.

    Most Superchargers Visited

    Is there a way to view this fabled list? I went back about 10 pages, but haven't seen it or a link to it. Put me down in the novice level — just 21 superchargers so far. Hey, you've got to start somewhere, right? 1. Lafayette 2. Aurora 3. Chicago - Canal St. 4. Kingsland 5. Merrillville 6...

    Supercharger - Chicago, IL (South Canal Street)

    Was a couple of blocks from here for a swim meet at UIC over the weekend. Convenient location. Easy in & out, although it's on the 5th floor, so lots of 'round & 'round to get up there & also coming down. Starbucks & Panera across the street are handy. Parking validation is problematic, and...

    Fed up with supercharging, going back to ICE

    Sounds like you need to move to the midwest. Our Superchargers are largely empty or have at the most 1 or 2 other Teslas using them.

    Department of redundancy department

    But hey, who am I to talk? I was on the way to my bank to use the ATM machine after taking my SAT test at 9am this morning when someone rudely cut me off and I had to slam on my brakes so hard the ABS system cut in and I got so flustered that I forgot my PIN number.

    Department of redundancy department

    I think you might have missed what I was referring to... I was talking about the VIN #, which is the Vehicle Identification Number number and redundant. It should just be a VIN, like on the phone app. Not a VIN #.
  41. Torqueria

    Department of redundancy department

    VIN stands for Vehicle Identification Number, so the # is unnecessary & redundant.

    Does Lane Departure Warning work?

    It works, but a apparently I can't stay within the lines very well. It was always going off and got very annoying. I turned it off.

    Does anybody regret buying Model X for your main car?

    You can make it show battery percent! Open the Controls screen, choose Settings at the top, then Units & Format on the side. About the 4th item down is Energy & Charging. This allows you to toggle between showing battery charge in percentage or in estimated range.

    Does anybody regret buying Model X for your main car?

    Have a 100D. Thought I may have some regrets. My only regret is not getting my Model X sooner. The falcon wing doors have attracted surprisingly little attention, much to my relief as I'm like you & don't particularly want to call attention to myself. And my experience is that superchargers are...

    Supercharger - Orlando, FL - W Sand Lake Road

    And then, there's always the lesser known and not quite so eloquent corollary: "If you've only partially built it and it's taken longer than expected, people will come and see what the hold up is."
