    Looking for used Roof Rack

    Do you know what rack models fit it?

    Has Tesla ever had Unlimited Mile Warranty?

    Well, fudge.

    Has Tesla ever had Unlimited Mile Warranty?

    I'm talking about the bumper-to-bumper warranty, of course. For example, when buying my 2014 Model S, I was under the distinct impression that I had a 4 year/unlimited mile bumper-to-bumper, and 8 year/unlimited mile drivetrain warranty. I remember that being one of the pride points when...

    How to deal with Music player amnesia?

    So the music player app in the car has been displaying this extremely forgetful behaviour for about a year now, and I finally got to asking about it. The player frequently forgets its own status when a car is locked, or even doors closed, or when a phone call is made. It usually goes like this...

    Model 3 Reality Check.

    A man visiting a physician: - Doctor, it hurts when I bend like this. What do I do? Physician: - Don't bend like that. That is to say, you are suggesting a workaround for a genuine problem, with the further implication that it's not a problem. Touch devices as they are now lack any feedback...

    Model 3 Reality Check.

    I'll go against the flow here, and say that no buttons is not necessarily the best idea, all things considered. At least, the climate control UX in the Model S is among my least favourite features. To compare: I can roll down the window by touch (i.e. without looking), but to adjust the climate...

    Slow High Beams / Phone controls

    After looking online into how bi-xenons work, it does seem that some mechanical pivoting is used... I want LEDs, none of that mechanical nonsense! :cursing:

    Disappointed with the D unveiling

    Well, that gives us a data point, at least. Have you ever heard from Tesla following your letter to ownership? Mine produced no reaction so far, even after I mentioned it in the ownership quality poll they sent to me (I believe these two evens are unrelated).

    Slow High Beams / Phone controls

    Aha! This is probably what I was looking for. Thank you. Now I just need to figure out what's wrong with my high beams....

    Transponder. Cool idea or silly?

    Both, actually. As in, both cool and silly :smile: Certainly beats just waving at the other Tesla drivers. But as the number of Teslas on the road increases with time, the whole concept will become a nuisance. Even now in some areas, such as Silicon Valley or Seattle Eastside, the concentration...

    Slow High Beams / Phone controls

    So far, I've discovered two things about my Model S that make me wonder. The first one is the way the high beams have a noticeable lag when turned off. You flip the switch down, they turn on instantly. You pull it back up, there's a delay of up to half a second, then they turn off. The delay is...

    Disappointed with the D unveiling

    It doesn't have to be quarterly, but it would work. One more note to that, as I see it: Either of the two needs to happen: 1. When a person has placed an order before the quarterly update, but is scheduled for delivery after the update, they should be contacted regarding the implications, and...

    Model S vs iPhone ultimate showdown

    When I posted on the now inaccessible Tesla forums about the disappointment with the D and especially the A, people started asking if I throw a tantrum over not getting the latest model of the iPhone (the answer is no, by the way :tongue: ). So to take a break from the discussion of insults and...

    Disappointed with the D unveiling

    Technically, it is unfair to ALL owners without the new A-list hardware (what should we call them? "nonsensical"? "desensitized"?... :wink: ), but to varying degrees. Every one of them suffers the implicit car value hit and insurance premium hit, since the car doesn't have, and will never have...

    Disappointed with the D unveiling

    1. The feedback form had 3 grades, none of which had direct relation to what I'm talking about. I gave an honest 8/10 to the overall purchase experience, a 10/10 to my satisfaction with the car, and a 10/10 to suggesting Tesla to others. 2. I asked to, but Bellevue doesn't do deliveries anymore...

    Disappointed with the D unveiling

    I don't have a ready solution for the current situation. Not at this point, not one that would make a lot of sense for everyone. The feeling that there is no solution is a big part of the problem. If you asked me several months (years?) ago, I'd have, basically, two solutions: 1. Engineer the...

    Disappointed with the D unveiling

    Many people don't seem to. I won't bother to look up "disappointment" in a dictionary, but it is, basically, a feeling you get when something you care about does not live up to your expectations. It is very definitely subjective, but let me put it in a story for clarification. Imagine you go to...
