    Climate running while parked? (In a garage)

    Pretty sure that my phone key is waking my car and running climate when I use a bathroom in my house nearest the garage. This morning, surface temps in my garage were = to my climate settings, so it was immediately at desired temperature.

    Twinsies. I'm a 3407xx, 4/22 build date, delivery scheduled in a week. Hoping for screen tilt, but not expecting it at this point.

    At least one of us is buying a new 7 seat model that they do not need for the same reason. I hope that the new 5-seaters have improved rear cooling, but I knew it would bother me to not have the most comfort possible for passengers in my spaceship. Plus... maybe it's just me, but summers...

    I'm 3407XX, and was told my birthdate is 4/22. I also felt that the VIN was a bit older than I hoped, but given that deliveries have been lumpy (didn't they even pause for some software updates in May too??), I'm hoping it's a non-issue. I read somewhere that swivel screens began on my...

    Maybe foolish on my part, but my hope is that the selective illumination capabilities of the matrix headlights will allow the AP cameras to see better at night, without blinding oncoming traffic, eventually ending forced auto high-beams and the associated issues. I’m not sure if I have the...

    Yeah…. Total speculation, but every time someone says that Rivian should have broken up the price increase into multiple smaller amounts, I think: What if this IS the smaller amount? If their initial pricing was $20k off for the quad motor, then yeah, break it into 2 x 10k bumps or more… but...

    Are any other 7-seater folks seeing “We’re building your car”? Mine just changed today. I assumed that it wasn’t updating with the others here because they haven’t started building the 7-seat model yet, but I haven’t seen that specifically discussed. (Apologies if I missed it) I still have...

    My guess is that Tesla will be the only company offering ICE-beating long-distance towing performance in 2025, and I’m likely to put up with some of the same b.s. to get one.

    That's what they want you to believe [/tinfoil] Seriously though... It seems probable that the plaid will be somewhat better than the original specs (maybe range, maybe surprise features, we don't know). Maybe a lot of plaid+ orders will not be satisfied with the production-release Plaid...

    4-d chess enthusiasts might point out that Cybertruck's polarizing styling has accelerated the advent of BEV pickups, while simultaneously leaving the door open for a "traditional" pickup partnership.

    Can I add to your list? * MX Refresh deliveries I’ve mentally rehearsed picking up my first Tesla in Nashville for so long (years), that my brain will be confused if it gets delivered at West Town instead. I’d probably drive it to Nashville and back just to be safe. ;)

    In my state, at least, trade-in value is deducted from the purchase price of the new vehicle BEFORE computing sales tax on the new car. i.e. If you trade-in, rather than sell your old car, you don't pay sales tax on the equity you already have in your existing vehicle. While I probably could...

    I'm trying to figure this out too. In terms of potentially "catching a spike", I placed a limit sell order as a "DAY + EXT", which can execute through e*trade any time between 7AM-8PM EST. I chose this over a LOC order because I would take this price before, after or during the closing cross...

    I wonder if the tranche idea is as much about moderating the (de-balancing) of those other stocks as it is about slowing TSLA purchasing? With the sheer size of this inclusion, and the unpredictable nature of how it might play out, polling the investment community also could be seen as a...
