    SF bay area to Tahoe without stopping?

    LR RWD here. I do this drive regularly to our place in Truckee and going there requires a short stop (15 min) and no stop on the way back. In fact, I typically leave Truckee with about 285-290 mi charge and get back home to San Jose with around 100 mi left. One of these weekends on a good...

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.50.x - Driving Visualization improvements, new voice commands, Camping Mode

    Do the new visualizations show up if you have HW3 but haven’t purchased FSD? I currently see the traffic cones.

    New LR AWD 322mi range: will existing LR AWD cars get the increased range?

    Clearly it's not a hardware change, the range difference between 310 and 322mi isn't enough to justify that. So I was surprised that the recent 5% power update or "hold" increased regenerative braking mode didn't modify the LR AWD range up to match what's listed on nee LR AWD models now. Do we...

    What did you name your Tesla?

    I named mine Thunder Road, not after the Springsteen song, but after the spaceship build by the boys in 1985 Spielberg produced The Explorers. I was searching for a name when I rewatched the film again on Amazon, and realized the ship runs on electricity, is silent, and can accelerate with "no...

    Standard Range Plus Supercharging Speed

    It looks like this has been pushed to 2019.40.1, which some early access users have started to see (spotted on twitter). So it looks like it is coming. Very happy for you guys.

    Performance vs Long Range vs SR+ (still undecided...)

    Performance was never on the table for me, I just don't need that kind of speed. The only real downsides for the SR+ are: 1. Range (but that's only a negative if long drives are regular, or medium drives in cold weather) 2. Premium Connectivity (but this may come as a subscription option down...

    Washing - is there a long thread I can’t find?

    I’m going to give Thunder Road her first wash this weekend. Is there a thread about best gentle wash soap and best solutions for interior surfaces? I had armor all wipes for the hard surfaces (backs of seats and shoe scuffed door bottoms), and I already have microfiber cloths for drying and...

    First long trip... questions on charging.

    I thought I'd just followup here after my trip. Thanks to everyone who posted. I charged to about 300mi before we left on the trip up. Stopped in Vacaville with about 180. By the time we walked to the Starbucks and had our order I was getting notifications that charging was nearly complete...

    First long trip... questions on charging.

    Yikes. Sort of frustrating... Figures on the Friday I can't get a charging spot until 3:30pm. So I arrive home with 272 miles. I figure... hey! I've got free supercharging. I'll go to the nearest charger and top up to 300mi tonight. Unfortunately the one I go to is high volume, so max...

    First long trip... questions on charging.

    Wow. I'll have to try that one time.. reduce my speed a bit to compensate for the AWD efficiency. I'll definitely look at stopping in to Rocklin. I just don't know if it's up or down tomorrow with the PG&E outages. Actually wish Tesla would send out a list of affected superchargers.

    First long trip... questions on charging.

    A better Route planner says I shouldn’t need to stop at all on the way back, and will in fact end up with about 20% left on the battery after the drive back to SJ.
  14. 11thIndian

    First long trip... questions on charging.

    Thanks. There are Superchargers down due to PG&E outages, but still lots either side of Sacramento. I take i80 to Truckee, so Placerville is out of the way for me. I think I'll charge to 100% just in time to drive home from work. By the time I get there I'll be at about 95% (295mi) vs the...

    Oct 2019 electric utility power shutdowns in various parts of California

    So according to the great links provided above, Vacaville, Sacramento, and Roseville are all ok, but Rocklin and Fairfield will be down. Most importantly, Truckee is unaffected. Thanks!
  16. 11thIndian

    First long trip... questions on charging.

    Roseville is on the edge and Im pretty sure run by a different utility, but Rocklin is I believe in the PG&E blackout zone. But those are definitely the spots that Tesla Nav suggests by default. but I’d wager we’ll stop earlier at Vacaville or Sacramento to be 100% sure we stop to charge...

    First long trip... questions on charging.

    Thanks @AlanSubie4Life. Thankfully cost to charge won't be an issue for me for 2 years. I was one of the lucky ones to nab that end of quarter incentive. Charging at home for me will be the real rarity- so i'm not even investing in anything beyond wall plug. I guess my major concern was...

    First long trip... questions on charging.

    I'm doing my first long trip in Thunder Road (LR AWD 19") from San Jose to Tahoe this weekend (don't worry, taken into account the PG&E power outages)... Stop for about 15-20 in Sacramento to make sure we have a healthy charge to get up the mountains. My wife is still skittish. So I've...

    Oct 2019 electric utility power shutdowns in various parts of California

    I just got my car at the end of the month and we're doing our first trip from San Jose to Truckee in the Tesla this weekend. Looks like I need to stop somewhere along 80 for about 10-20 min to get up there (the way back you don't need to charge). Looking at the two maps Vacaville "might" be...

    V10 for non FSD

    I was notified on my phone that an update was downloaded and ready to install.

    V10 for non FSD

    Thunder Road started downloading as soon as I pulled in the garage. I guess my fears about insufficient WiFi to the garage were unfounded. Downloaded in about 15 min. ~45min to install.

    V10 for non FSD

    I just got my LR AWD last week. Autopilot only. I got a navigation update but I'm still on 2019.27.103 566b11d I think I need to boost the WiFi to my garage, regardless of whether that's stopping me from getting V10.

    All Model 3s built since 9/1/2019 have a pedestrian warning speaker installed

    Please do. I may do this on the weekend. We'll hopefully have a better idea of if we are obligated to reconnect it when the law comes into effect next Fall.

    V10 for non FSD

    To be fair, Elon did say that non-FSD owners would get it about a week later. So we're not quite there yet.

    I just got a message in my Mobile app inbox about V10. Have to see if it's available for download when I get home onto WiFi. Autopilot only.

    Model 3 Dog Hammock

    Can the Orvis be unzipped where the mesh is? When we're driving up to Tahoe our Sheepdog will be sharing the back seat with my son. So we'd only want it "hammocked" on the passenger side so my son can sit normally behind the driver. I think I've seen this on some options.

    All Model 3s built since 9/1/2019 have a pedestrian warning speaker installed

    The sound can likely be modified after the fact. They may also just add in a disable switch in software until it becomes law, or if the law changes. You can't hear either in a close cabin.

    All Model 3s built since 9/1/2019 have a pedestrian warning speaker installed

    The backup sound seems like overkill. But the forward one isn't really noticeable. I agree that there's terrible bias to these laws. EVs seem to being singled out when other cars at low speed can be even quieter. I'm fine if there's universal laws, but I don't want ICE vehicles to make this...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Took delivery last night. Slight scuff on one of the roof pillars which the guy noted and said to take to a service centre to have them buff. I way over designed my process for making sure that the front plate holder was centred... (ruler, low tack paint tape on one side, then placement)...

    MASTER THREAD: Tesla Insurance Services in California

    From the other thread, I know that spouses do need to be added on for full coverage. My wife can't until she gets her CA drivers's license in December (Canadians have to do written AND in-car test, unbelievably). Similarly, my brother being from out of country probably complicates things as...

    MASTER THREAD: Tesla Insurance Services in California

    I'd love to take Tesla insurance up on their quote, which will save me quite a bit of money over what Progressive is quoting me. But I'm trying to figure out if Tesla's take on non-listed drivers is any different than other insurers. My wife will NOT be a regular driver on the car, but may...

    California DMV - Plates & HOV Stickers

    I'm taking delivery of my Model 3 tonight with the paper plates. I was thinking of getting a personalized plate. Can I call DMV and interrupt the default plates and get custom ones sent instead? Seems a waste to have new plates delivered just to have to take them back a month later. Thanks!

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Car is being dropped off tonight. Huzzah! No comps (never asked cause the scuttlebutt seemed to be that was only for inventory cars), but I am getting the 2 years Supercharging which will be great for exploring California. I liked a lot of things about my A3 e-tron, but I was never going to...

    I'm going thru the spouse conundrum right now as well. Tesla's rate is FAR better than Progressive, but with the amorphous coverage if my wife drives once in a while. The agent said they would be covered, just at the minimums spelled out above. The added wrinkle is that my wife is still on...

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    I ended up going with Tesla Finance so no need for MVPA. Since I moved down from Canada last year my non-existent credit rating meant the other quotes I got were worse or not significantly better.

    I went in to meet my new SA and they confirmed that the 2 years of supercharging has been added to my order. I also asked to confirm my original referer will still receive their 2,000 mi.

    Tesla offering free supercharging on Model 3's
