    Texas Hold Up!

    Uninstall your app, then reinstall. That will sometimes help. Also, later if you have any problem connecting, turn on Airplane Mode, then turn it off. That would re-establish the connection.

    Does the Model 3 come fully charged on delivery?

    Brentt, let your delivery specialist - the person who is scheduling - know you'd like a 100% charge as you will be driving out of state immediately. They should relay that to the local center you will be taking delivery. You can also charge while you are having the orientation. Where and when...

    Always thought brown would look great on the X. But then, I am partial to the color.

    NUMMI: this american life

    I've listened to the original story and need to go back again. Like an above poster, our Tesla is the second vehicle from the facility. Unlike that poster, we had an awesome experience with our 1988 Chevy Nova. The dealer was the best, actually only, dealer experience we ever had. One of the...

    Defending Tesla has ended a Friendship of mine

    The point is we don't need to be around negative, toxic people. The subject doesn't need to be Tesla, politics, religion, just anything you care about. Tearing down something you are passionate about to build himself up is something that only brings you into his negative realm. A true friend...

    A better idea from Cadillac?

    Well, maybe for 1951 before innovation and thinking outside the box was quashed. I always wondered about those land boats and those tiny post-war garages. 5th Wheel Driving On A 1951 Cadillac - YouTube

    How do you deal with valet?

    Yes, Dallas can be tricky. So many valet only places. I just can't bring myself to that point yet. It would be one thing if I do the ding but not some snot-nosed kid who thinks he's a hotshot driving fancy cars- which are fairly common around here. I would suggest calling ahead and asking...

    Help Tesla Diagnose Electrical Noise in Speakers

    Fuddy Duddies vs. The Future

    Fuddy Duddy is a relative term. It cuts across age, social, income and cultural designations. You get all sorts of people excited about what Tesla represents and you get those afraid of the future and change. It is fun to see the excitement in those who get it. I would do no less in checking...

    Tesla Garage art / surveillance

    Does the camera have GPS? They might give up on stealing the Tesla and take the nice looking (by the way) wall art as a trophy. I could see this on one of those stupid criminal stories somewhere.

    Jingle-bell type sound coming from under the car when going over some bumps

    This type of sound can drive one insane. You just have to be relentless in the search for the cause. In my previous vehicle, I kept hearing a "jingle bell" sound over bumps and around corners. My son is in elementary school with lots of crafts so I found a stray jingle bell in the console...

    My Tesla Model S P85 Accident - Is it REPAIRABLE or TOTALED?

    I would also think with a tight rein on parts and distribution, parts would be less desirable to be bought and sold through questionable sources and easier to track. Would that cut down on black market (chop shop) and thereby make the car even less desirable to steal? Would think insurance...

    Collective noun for Model S?

    It can get complex. Some groupings have multiple nouns, even differentiating between types. For example, geese have multiple different collective nouns depending on whether they are on land, flying or flying in close proximity. - - - Updated - - - A stealth of Teslas?

    I have read thought the "Texas registration issues and how to navigate them" thread. Lots of great information. I was wondering if any Dallas County owners could recommend a tax office location and the name of a person who was particularly knowledgeable and helpful? Thanks.
