    Powder Coating Stock 19" Rims in Bay Area.. Recommendations?

    Looking for recommendations, pricing, and how many days they need the car. I live in Berkeley near North Oakland, so preference is East Bay, but open if more affordable elsewhere. Thanks in advance!

    Auto High Beams

    No, it's part of the Auto Pilot package, which my trial has timed out.

    Update Graphic with T-Sportline Wheels / Spoiler

    Great thread. Was wondering if this is possible, so thanks for confirming on the rims and spoiler. Question for the group though... does anyone know if they will black out the graphic? I'm in the process of removing the chrome and blacking out my Model S... would love to see the changes...

    Supercharger only maintaining high amps for short periods, normal?

    @NeilErdwien Could be. Just passing on the dialogue with the attendant.. but felt like there was some truth or messaging from Tesla to the effect of Throttling.

    Does the current refreshed 90D have secret capacity up to a 100D?

    So last bit of wishful thinking.. but any chance the 90 old and new have the potential for 100? and LOL to the stages of grief.. been in bliss for two months after taking delivery, just starting to think about things like this.

    Tesla Supercharger attendant suggests throttling occuring

    the San Mateo supercharger is a crowded one, so I'm sure first and foremost it's to hold folks to the 30 min limit where posted. He was a younger kid, probably in his twenties. Very polite, and attentive. Even if he has no EVI as gaswalla suggests, the answers and discussion seem to come from...

    Tesla Supercharger attendant suggests throttling occuring

    I stopped by the San Mateo supercharger today and chatted with the Tesla rep that's assigned to the location. It was like a full service gas station btw, I pulled in, and there was a Tesla capped gentleman putting the charger into my car. So we got to talking and I asked why this time I was...

    Supercharger only maintaining high amps for short periods, normal?

    I spoke with a rep at the San Mateo charger today. He confirmed that Tesla is throttling customers as they get closer to full. The reason is to discourage topping off, and focus on travelers that are bottoming out and need many miles to get to their next destination. I've been to that same...

    Does the current refreshed 90D have secret capacity up to a 100D?

    Actually I talked to a Tesla rep managing one of the Supercharger locations. He confirmed that the charge rate is throttled by Tesla based on how much you need to discourage folks from topping off. According to the rep, if you only need 50 miles the car will charge super slowly, where as the...

    Quick Connection iPhone Dock - has anyone else purchased one?

    @MikingCO Thanks for the reply. Will be great to not have the phone clanking around in the cup holder. Looking forward to it.

    Does the current refreshed 90D have secret capacity up to a 100D?

    I'm sure it's anyone's guess, but does anyone want to speculate or share rumors they are hearing? It would be great to think this is a possibility.

    Quick Connection iPhone Dock - has anyone else purchased one?

    I ordered this today after waiting for it to come back in stock. Has anyone else ordered one? Any good? Worth it? Tesla — Quick Connection Phone Dock

    AutoPilotshould be free (for now)

    Calisnow - I'm the owner of a 90D, pretty expensive hobby to be a random. I would love to get some referrals, small return for the time investment in writing, but no, I'll be writing long past the referral program. The forums helped me with my purchase, and are a great community for discussing...

    AutoPilotshould be free (for now)

    Hah, who said I don't realize Autopilot is better than the competitors.. the other posters? I definitely agree that the AutoPilot is the best on the market. Thought I made that clear, my reference to a more polished system is to a future AutoPilot, that isn't in a "commercial", "public" beta but...

    AutoPilotshould be free (for now)

    Az_Rael, agreed, maybe break out the non-beta components, but AutoSteer is pretty vital to the whole macro conversation right now and from reading the articles (which I agree, could turn out to be a lot of fud after the investigations are complete) it appears that distance feature may come into...

    AutoPilotshould be free (for now)

    I guess it's a matter of expectations. I have much higher expectations, somewhat "polished" expectations, of a feature I have to pay for. I take a much different approach to beta features. I don't download Apple updates that are beta for the very reason I don't have time to mess with early...

    AutoPilotshould be free (for now)

    So who else thinks Tesla should suspend charging people for AutoPilot, at least until the feature is out of Beta, and some of the controversy over the feature blows over? I just posted a write up discussing the arguement for free AutoPilot. Maybe if enough of us sound off Tesla will listen. I'm...

    Non Teslas Routinely Parking at the Truckee Supercharger Location

    So should we be notifying anyone? or just letting it continue? I did a write up this morning with pics, but twice I've seen this at the Truckee Supercharger location. It didn't impact me personally so I just took my pics and moved on. Aren’t Tesla Supercharger Spots Sacred Ground?

    Ordering Advice

    I'm 42 and would never have been in a position to purchase any configuration of Tesla at your age, but I did write a post tonight that focuses on why an under $60K configuration is still a great configuration and a few thoughts on why I might even reconsider going with a 60 kWh in the future...

    New 90D owner, 3000 miles in on the first month, and starting a Tesla blog to share experiences

    First off thanks to everyone that have posted in the forums here. I learned a lot and got a lot of my questions answered as a future Tesla buyer. I'm now 30 days in on my new 90D and loving it. I'm loving it so much that I've started a blog to share my advice with other potential buyers and...
