    CyberTruck Image Leaked

    There’s a significant subset of pickups with similar sail panels it’s far from a usability killer

    Tesla Model 3 OEM Mudflaps

    I thought they were super easy to install. Didn't have to lift the car just turned the wheels to gain access on each side. if you're not using 1/4" shorty socket you're doing it wrong and will have a bad time. I will be removing them to pull off the long part of the flap because they do drag...

    Cybertruck design/features

    This is the status quo. Most people don't only fill their ICE car with just enough gas for their trip. The benefit I see here is EV's have effectively the same weight full or empty. If you're that concerned about weight reduction you can start ripping out seats

    Have ordered - but interior concerns..

    Not sure what your argument is here. Top of the line truck interiors use at best 100% Full grain leather or top grain leather (and most with a few exceptions use Top Grain not full grain for seat upholstery at least). The couches I referenced were Full grain leather. Not sure what you think the...

    Have ordered - but interior concerns..

    I hear what you're saying and completely understand. But the idea (wether it matches reality or not) is that Tesla wants to be ahead of that curve and given that livestock is such a large contributor to greenhouse gasses it should be reduced so Tesla wouldn't want to be dependant on the...

    Have ordered - but interior concerns..

    Well that's inaccurate. To harvest leather at scale you have to raise livestock and raising livestock is extremely impactful from outsized water and crop usage to feed and maintain the livestock to the fact that livestock alone is responsible for about 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions. As...

    Have ordered - but interior concerns..

    Beliefs are hard to change. I went through 4 different real leather couches over 10 years all destroyed by pets and kids, convinced of REAL leathers "toughness". After finally switching to a faux leather I've had now for 7 years that still looks good as new. Material Science has been quietly...

    Battery Day expectations

    Ehhh no on the warranty thing. That's where the difference is. If you use genuine Chevy parts for example and have the work done at a licensed dealership it will not and cannot void the warranty. Whereas Tesla has outright blocked and refused swapping parts in software in many cases

    Battery Day expectations

    And the Batteries aren't the only thing that makes a 2021+ Model 3 a 2021+ Model 3 I fail to see what the point is in relation to the argument I was responding to. The original ZR1 argument was against retrofitting current Model 3's with potential post Battery day batteries. "What happens when...

    Seniors wishing the glovebox had a physical button to open

    Sorry disagree completely. This may have been true in the day of write the product put it on disks and ship it, but as a current software developer I can say the cost of maintaining an active piece of software is exceedingly expensive with bug fixes, feature additions and other ongoing...

    Battery Day expectations

    Unless part of the battery day announcements is a development that unlocks a ton of production capacity. To be fair they're not just producing cells for cars even at this point, power walls and the Megapacks are consuming a lot of "spare" capacity

    Battery Day expectations

    Bad comparison you go to the Chevy parts counter and order all the parts to do an LT5 swap into your 2 year old OR OLDER Corvette https://www.motortrend.com/news/755-hp-chevrolet-corvette-zr1s-lt5-now-available-crate-engine/

    Jumping the line

    Alignment issues should be a non issue for the most part the only distinct body pieces that are joins not bends are the openings eg doors frunk etc ( somewhere around 7 distinct exterior facing panels ). which are all adjustable by design as opposed to the Model 3 which has at my count (from the...

    2020.24 with New Sentry Mode event trigger

    That's a narrow view of even a pedantic view of the word "perfect" "Perfect option" "Perfect fit" "Perfect for me" "Perfect for my use" "Perfect for x (y or z)"

    2020.24 with New Sentry Mode event trigger

    /*RANT*/ I wasn't talking about you. I was referring to you calling out someone who's genuinely 100% happy with their car like there's some sort of problem with that. I truly can't fathom why so many people try to find things to be unhappy with. Sure x,y,z could be better and humans could have...

    2020.24 with New Sentry Mode event trigger

    Name calling out of the gate, then demonstrating the exact trait you're bestowing upon others. 1. Can't add more cameras with software updates 2. It's a gimmick maybe useful to inexperienced drivers but a gimmick none the less. I've been driving since 1996 and never had a vehicle with a...

    One pedal driving

    I park in a tight garage under a 4 post lift so < 6 inches on each side and can get within an inch of the wall at the back of the garage reliably

    only way to drive. It really throws me off driving an automatic ICE car now

    Does anyone else need a turn-signal left on reminder?

    What the ticking of the indicator isn't enough for you? If you're not noticing that anymore you probably won't notice whatever additional warnings they could add eventually.

    What’s coming next in V11?

    In any event. If you don't want or don't like CP/AA then again who cares why argue? If you do want it you're not going to get it by not asking and not advocating for it. So there's a reason to keep publicly voicing desire for it. Does it guarantee anything No. But not asking for it or voicing...

    What’s coming next in V11?

    Maybe there are better recruiters out there but almost everywhere I've worked they're looking for specific general skills then they consult with me or someone else in my department on specifics. This would definitely count as a specific. You don't need experience specifically in implementing...

    What’s coming next in V11?

    That's an opinion tainted by hindsight, the same could be said of anything they've added prior to them adding it. And there's no "fundamentals" here. CP/AA can be placed in the interface without disrupting the UI at all for anyone who doesn't use it. As more and more peoples premium...

    What’s coming next in V11?

    Haha Never I spent a few years working on VW's they have a way of convoluting the simplest systems in the world. Never again. Also it really depends on what they're trying to do with it. Basic integration ( eg the whole infotainment portion, Viewport, audio etc) is dead simple. Once you start...

    What’s coming next in V11?

    Because that's how RAM designed it that's their decision and design not something inherent to CarPlay, Tesla would do it Differently, Ford might do it differently, BMW might do it differently. Despite popular belief - You can layer interface OVER the CarPlay Interface, just nobody done that...

    What’s coming next in V11?

    Ok?? I'm not talking about in my basement genius. I'm a software engineer, I worked with a startup that was planning on selling an off the shelf car computer to compete with the established Head Unit companies when that was still vaguely interesting and they wanted CarPlay support. Project ended...

    ROFL all you want. I've done it. Again pick the easy target ignore the rest

    What’s coming next in V11?

    Incorrect there's no longer anything preventing from CarPlay running in a window so Tesla can have it float like the Media player with the control bar at the bottom and the car info on the left Again incorrect. The implementation of CarPlay is relatively simple. It can exist with their own...

    Decoding the Reservation Number

    I mean like I say this is just my suspicion. But prior to this where have we ever heard of Tesla offering pre-orders with a $100 refundable deposit. We can't really use prior examples here
  32. CMoZ

    What’s coming next in V11?

    Nice straw man you've built there. I do use it extensively, I replaced the stock head unit with a CarPlay capable head unit for a reason. You want stone age and bad ui design check out the Head units Harley Davidson was using as recently as 2017. As I mentioned in subsequent posts. I've also...

    What’s coming next in V11?

    I guess I'm not "manipulating things about my car" as much as you. On my motorcycle I never leave the CP UI on the cars I've driven with it I rarely leave it. but even if I do the CP UI is it's own "app" when integrated with a cars own UI like that and it should be thought of as such. If you're...

    What’s coming next in V11?

    Just another opinion but I think 2 and 3 are especially subjective. 2) not quite sure what you mean CP is a pretty flat navigation structure 3) this is completely subjective I use the map via google maps all the time and it seems pretty in line with the iOS app. Maybe your'e talking about apple...

    Adaptive air suspension makes me pause...

    Ok went through all the diagrams not just the one I was looking at and you're right it's a ancillary air. ( I can admit when I'm wrong) but It is out of a 2019 Land Cruiser not a Prado and it is a permanent part not something you put in for towing only, There's one on each wheel all the way...

    Adaptive air suspension makes me pause...

    What's part number 4800660024 then 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser Air Suspension Compressor. System, ACTIVE, Brakes - 4800660024 - Genuine Toyota Part

    Yours doesn't the 2019 Toyota Land Cruiser has Air suspension

    Decoding the Reservation Number

    Why would that be insulting? If it was non refundable maybe, if it was a more significant amount of money for sure. But a fully refundable $100 deposit is pretty much nothing on a $40,000+ purchase. It's pretty clear that a lot of those $100 "pre-orders" will be dropped when they ask for the...

    Adaptive air suspension makes me pause...

    Doesn't the venerable Toyota Land cruiser use air suspension? I think the concerns are overblown here. The issue most have with air off-road is that fully aired up your suspension is stiffest which sucks for comfort off-road. I can't imagine Elon will be happy with that so I'd assume they build...
  40. CMoZ

    Decoding the Reservation Number

    I'm actually starting to suspect the current pre-orders are not ordered at all. I think everyone with a current pre-order will get configurations opened up at the same time and get to put down a real non-refundable deposit and order will be decided by who does that first.

    2020.8.1

    my LR AWD is a filthy liar. It's still telling me the software is up to date. This is the lowest on the totem pole for an update I've been so far
  44. CMoZ

    2020.8.1

    But again all beside the point. As another poster mentioned. in Software development the concept of "Too many cooks in the kitchen" is all too real. You can't get bugs fixed quicker by throwing more people at them. Much like how although 1 woman can have a baby in 9 months throwing 9 women at...

    Acceleration Boost option gone?

    And that’s what you got. You paid for a car with a range of X and a 0-60 time of Y. How they achieve that is irrelevant. Like I said the software is an integral part of this car as much as anything. This is something ICE cars do with the ECU tune REGULARLY. You can pay money to get a new chip or...
  46. CMoZ

    Acceleration Boost option gone?

    Exactly so if you want a direct comparison you have to look at the stealth P which is the P with none of those things. It's still more expensive than the LR AWD
  47. CMoZ

    Acceleration Boost option gone?

    If they sold it to me as having a 350 mile range and I was willing to buy it at that price why the heck would it bother me if I could upgrade to the 400 miles later? In fact Tesla's do hold back some battery capacity to keep the range higher as the battery degrades. They could unlock more range...
  48. CMoZ

    Acceleration Boost option gone?

    It's more than what you paid for because you paid for the software and the hardware as one unit. You were quoted performance numbers range numbers and the like when you made your purchase. It doesn't matter what the underlying hardware is capable of. And after that it's at Teslas discretion if...

    2020.8.1

    Correct SK360 also has a right to think your opinion is idiotic. You have a right to your opinion but no right to have it unchallenged. The truth is you likely do benefit from this update in the form of bug fixes, fixes to the autopilot Neural Net training, etc. Just because it's not a flagship...

    Electrician in Maple Ridge BC

    So many other Maple Ridge Tesla owners. Just posting to say Hi Also don't have my electricians name but I had them do 2 14-50 outlets each on their own breaker and it was around $600 cost is almost all the wire it's pretty expensive so your price will go up pretty dramatically with distance...
