    Alabama Superchargers (location speculation and discussion)

    The new Supercharger outside of Bham is a really nice addition. No longer do I have to go into the city just to charge. The Cottondale supercharger is also a great addition and good location. Any word on the supercharger in Huntsville?

    SuperCharger - Tuscaloosa, AL

    This a great new stop either overnight or as a pit stop for the trip traveling to or thru Mississippi. Now if Huntsville could get a Supercharger that would be really nice when traveling.

    Window Tinting in Atlanta

    I recommend Josh at Executive Tint in Roswell. In regards to pricing, that all depends on how many windows are being tinted. I paid $150 plus tip for the 2 front windows (rear windows already tinted) when I had my Model X done. Would say expect to pay around $300-500 for a Model Y.

    eMMC recall vs. MCU2 Upgrade

    I'm not sure if it was covered under the MCU warranty or my original vehicle warranty that expires in a few months.

    eMMC recall vs. MCU2 Upgrade

    I had my 2017 MX MCU1 and AP2.5 upgraded to MCU2/AP3 in Nov. 2020 for $2,500. A few weeks ago, I go out for a drive and the car displays are completely black after opening driver side door. After getting inside and pressing / tapping the MCU screen and scroll wheels, nothing is happening...

    Tesla Supercharger map 3Q21 update - comments, complaints, surprises?

    Yeah I can't see Auburn getting a 2nd SC even if the mall doesn't have allot of activity and the SC is a drive to get too. Why place a 2nd SC in Auburn when they have Montgomery scheduled for Q3 2021? I agree I think this is a mistake with the Auburn, CA supercharger and Tesla just hasn't...

    Tesla Supercharger map 3Q21 update - comments, complaints, surprises?

    Why is the map showing Auburn, AL as getting a SuperCharger Q2 2022? The Auburn SC has been there for awhile now, weird it's showing coming. Unless they're planning to upgrade that location.

    New owner of 2018 Model X - questions

    Hi @ShawnA yes I had the MCU upgrade done about a year ago and 1/2 ago. You might be right about the certificates. I didn't think about it until you mentioned it but the Service Center was able to fix the issue remotely. Per the text I received the tech stated - "We have remotely reset your...

    New owner of 2018 Model X - questions

    @Fiver Yeah that's the weird part about it. I'm able to open the charge port, frunk, trunk, sound the horn and even at times do summons. Opening the door or driving the car without the fob has never worked. I've tried rebooting (soft and hard) and powering off via the console. Just can't get...

    New owner of 2018 Model X - questions

    Thanks Jim. Yeah my iPhone XR is on the latest release, I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the Tesla app, my car and phone is on the same network and my car is running 2021.4.18.2. I did the MCU and FSD upgrade about a year ago (latest hardware), so I’m not sure why it’s never worked (since...

    New owner of 2018 Model X - questions

    Yeah I’m receiving that confirmation but nothing happen after pressing Yes. After you press Yes, does the door open automatically or do you have to push the handleto open the door? All this time I just thought this feature wasn’t available for the X/S, so I never looked into it. I’ve opened a...

    New owner of 2018 Model X - questions

    That's weird I've tried the same steps several times in the past and never worked for me. Just tried the following a few minutes ago: 1. From iPhone launch Tesla app 2. Push the Lock icon to unlock. The car doesn't unlock, no sound. Push the handle and nothing happens (tried multiple times)...

    Alabama Superchargers (location speculation and discussion)

    I thought it was pretty nice to see how I-20 will basically have DC chargers from the Georgia state line to Mississippi. The chargers aren't Tesla SC's but just having the other charger as an option or in case of emergency is nice when traveling.

    New owner of 2018 Model X - questions

    @Bigriver how are you able to open and drive your MX without the fob? I have a 2017 MX and have never been able (3+ yrs) to unlock or drive my car without the fob being close around. Please provide details if this is documented somewhere.

    Supercharger - Mountain Brook, AL

    Who knows how they come up with the SC locations. If this will be the only other SC in Birmingham for awhile. I would think they would get better use further down I-459 closer to Hoover / Galleria area. They also still need to build-out the SC in the Tuscaloosa area, to help on the drive to...

    Supercharger - Mountain Brook, AL

    This is great info. Birmingham really needed this additional SC site.

    Alabama Superchargers (location speculation and discussion)

    It's been awhile since I was on the UAB campus but you would think they would already have a few EV chargers around campus. The UA campus (Tuscaloosa) has several EV chargers spread around campus. I normally take a pit stop at the UA campus either going through or heading to Mississippi /...

    SuperCharger - Tuscaloosa, AL

    If I was getting 250 miles on a max charge I would be okay. I've learned over the years how to make it (225 mi) stretch (i.e. use regen braking going down hill, ride behind the big trucks, try to keep a constant speed, etc) but when charging stations are down and there's traffic / accidents. I...

    Alabama Superchargers (location speculation and discussion)

    I just hope the sites also have ChaDemo since we (Tesla) can't use CCS unless you have the 3rd party adapter.

    SuperCharger - Tuscaloosa, AL

    Wow that's really good. What model are you driving? I have a 2017 MX 75D. On max charge I'm only getting around 225 miles of range and have never come close to actually getting that.

    Alabama Superchargers (location speculation and discussion)

    I agree. All major cities (population 100K) should have at least two supercharger sites. It would be nice if the major gas stations (7 Eleven, BP, Chevron, QT, Racetrack, etc.) would install at least a single 48 amp universal charger. Here's an article where 7-Eleven is onboard with EV chargers.

    Alabama Superchargers (location speculation and discussion)

    If you have to take I-65 to reach your destination. Getting a ChaDemo adapter is an option if you have $400 to spare since you could use it to charge at the Wal-Mart Electrify America station in Greenville. For the Montgomery location I was getting around a 50kwh charge rate. It's not...

    Alabama Superchargers (location speculation and discussion)

    What is going on with the Alabama SuperChargers? This past weekend my wife and I did a weekend get away from Atlanta, GA to Biloxi, MS to Destin, FL. The route we decided to take was the I-20 / I-65 vs. I-85 / I-65. The trip started off fine, stopping at the Oxford, AL supercharger for a few...

    Model X 22" Onyx Black Wheels Rim Protectors

    I have the black wheel bands from Evannex installed on my 2017 MX but don't have the 22 inch Onyx wheels. Instead I have the 20 inch Space Gray from Tsportline installed. I like them and just having the security of knowing my wheels are somewhat protected.

    Game controllers not recognized

    Just a suggestion but here's the configuration I've been using for awhile to play games in my 2017 MX with MCU2. This setup has been working for me and I've enjoyed it allot more not having the cables. You will need to get two of each item, if you're going for dual play - Xbox Wireless...

    SuperCharger - Tuscaloosa, AL

    Just thought about it... maybe the Target location.

    SuperCharger - Tuscaloosa, AL

    I agree but probably the best location during game days. I can't think of any other location in the city that has a better location, MacFarland has multiple lanes and not far from the highway.

    SuperCharger - Tuscaloosa, AL

    That would be really nice!!! They could place it by the mall since it's easy access to the highway and food.

    SuperCharger - Tuscaloosa, AL

    What is everyone thoughts on the lack of SuperChargers in Alabama. While traveling from Jackson to Atlanta last week. I was a little nervous after not fully charging (80%) in Meridian. I ended up stopping in Tuscaloosa at a Destination charger but that took forever just to get a few miles. It...

    Window Tinting in Atlanta

    Sorry about the delay. I paid $150 + tip for the two side windows on my MX. I had him apply the legal limit (35%). It seems light at times but I'm glad I didn't go darker for nighttime driving.

    Supercharger - Marietta, Ga

    GREAT info jcaruso!!! Looks like it's over by the Marietta Athletics Club, Post Office and Three Dollar Cafe. Nice to know Marietta / Cobb now has Superchargers. I've heard superchargers were coming to the Marietta Square area. Not sure if it was just rumor or actual facts. It would be nice...

    eMMC recall reimbursement

    In my opinion, if this is truly a recall of a defective part. Anyone that paid for the part or the entire unit to be replaced should receive some type of reimbursement. It shouldn't matter if the repair was performed under warranty or not, or if it was repaired before or after failure. At the...

    MCU Upgraders - Heads up

    I did the same upgrade a few months ago for my 2017 MX (MCU1, HW2.5). Do you know what the tech did to determine the setting had changed? When I last checked I still see Premium listed under Additional vehicle information.

    Window Tinting in Atlanta

    I recommend Josh @ Executive Tint in Alpharetta. Excellent work and nice price. I used them to redo a tint job on my MX after taking it to a different vendor in Cobb County.

    2017 model X HW3 and MCU2 upgrade

    Here's what to expect with the MCU upgrade and Autopilot HW upgrade. There's a huge difference in response and map refresh time going to the new MCU. You will lose your radio and XM (requested to pay the fee ($500) to keep the radio but SC wasn't doing those yet) but I don't miss it much since...

    Anyone bought a used X through tesla.com?

    Before placing your order, be sure to request pictures or at least attempt to get pictures of the vehicle. I purchased a MX a few months ago and was told they no longer provide pictures of the used vehicles. I took the plunge but didn't feel good while I waited to see what I would receive...

    Tesla X without FWD Poll

    I wouldn't purchase the MX without the FWDs and agree with AvengerBB. Without the FWDs, the MX just wouldn't be the same vehicle. However the FWD wasn't the only reason I made the purchase. Here's a few of the features that helped with my decision. - the small instrument panel behind the...
