    Supercharger - Lake Forest, CA - Lake Forest Village Center (under construction Nov 2022, 24 V3 stalls)

    Considering where the fence was I didn't expect them to restripe the left side facing East. Makes them look like they're double-sided chargers which is interesting. If they were going to do this I wonder why they didn't turn the pedestals to make them pull through spots?

    Awesome news, thanks! I will try and stop by tonight on the way home for a look.

    Supercharger - La Quinta, CA (permit found, 20 stalls)

    Thanks for the update. It's great to see more happening in the Desert. It's also not far from my parents' house and close to their church.

    Raise Screen? [Any third party solution to raise screen height?]

    Awesome thanks! Looks like I have a cheap knock off of an older version. Maybe it's time to return that for the real thing.

    Raise Screen? [Any third party solution to raise screen height?]

    Any updates on this? The screen swivel I installed on our MY makes it about 1.5" lower than stock I'd rather have it go up instead. I'm thinking of reversing it but maybe the cables not long enough and I suppose it would tilt down at that point which might be weird.

    Supercharger - Lake Forest, CA - Lake Forest Village Center (under construction Nov 2022, 24 V3 stalls)

    Exciting news all. We have a transformer installed! These things typically seem to come after construction is done. With this I'm hopeful the site will be online before my vacation in just over a week. Probably a big ask still but we'll see!

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    We ordered it the night prices dropped and got it just over a week later. So, even if ours is on me, what about everyone else? Let's talk about how to fix the problem please.

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    Looks like my separate thread was merged, thank you. As a suggestion can we add "parking sensors" to the title for those like me who aren't familiar with the term "USS" ...until I posted? Thanks!

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    As a new and former MYLR owner, this removal came as a surprise. I was thinking they may have removed the stalks but thankfully no on that. So, yeah they got me on the removal of the USS. I also hit the water heater in the garage with our new MYLR, waiting for the usual indicators and beeps...

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    Yeah, we are using the tennis ball trick now. I will direct more comments on the USS issue on the main thread. Thanks all.

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    Yeah, I don't know. It's frustrating. Cars should be adding features, not taking them away, but that's Tesla for you.
  12. Falcon73

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    Well, at least it has stalks. I was worried they were taking those away. I hadn't heard anything about USS going away, but there's a lot of things to keep track. Of course the checklist I used didn't even address this, lol. Why is this on me?

    2023 Model Y no USS discussion

    Our brand new (2023) MYLR has no parking sensors. This was a surprise to us. Tesla giveth and Tesla taketh away? Anyway, it looks like this was decided back in October for the '23s (to remove ultrasonic sensors from the 3s & Ys). "Fun" I nearly hit our water heater in the garage waiting for...

    Supercharger - Lake Forest, CA - Lake Forest Village Center (under construction Nov 2022, 24 V3 stalls)

    Not much progress to report since 1/8, but then until yesterday, it's been a parade of rainstorms since my last update.

    Windshield wipers work except when it is raining.

    This is a frightening experience. Did manually pressing the button work? Yeah it's rained here more this season for 12 years. It's crazy and our MX leaks, sigh.

    '23 X vs '23 Y

    My old Prius Prime was like this, BUT it had a HUD, something which I found sorely missing when we had our MYLR. I added an instrument screen to it but that was very hard and buggy. 2 screens on our MX is a big benefit for me, but I think the windshield is much too big. We have a shade and...

    FS: 22" Model X Onyx Black Turbine Wheel Set (2017) & Pirelli Tires (2021)

    SoCal Pickup 22” Tesla Turbine wheel/tire set, Onyx Black, from our 2017 Model X Good condition of wheels, some minor curb rash that's been repaired (see pics) Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico tires in very good condition, lots of tread left (2021), Staggered sizes/condition as pictured...

    FWDs leaking when closed

    Here are pictures of what I found is likely causing the 2nd stain (on the roof section). I've tried repairing it with "Shoe Goo," but it didn't seem to stick that well, so I will be looking for better solutions. Also, I couldn't get the weather-stripping back under the plastic which may be the...

    Here are pictures of the water (rain) stains.

    FWDs leaking when closed

    Of course the exterior seals are shot on our MX but the interior seals look fine. However the rain is coming thru and we haven't used the FWDs today. Pretty heavy rain but the alcantara, if that's what it is, are water stained. I've noticed dried stains before in the car but looks like I need...

    Charge port door sensor fault CP_w043

    The charge port is replaced and working, BUT they cracked it up on installation, sigh. I reached out to Service but I'm thinking I don't want them to try and fix it again.

    Supercharger - Irvine, CA - Spectrum Center Dr (permit found)

    Agreed. I also recommend "Urban" superchargers here since it's a bit of a hike from the other side of the Spectrum and there's a lot to do. We also have an X, so it already charges at "Urban" speeds most of the curve anyway, but V3s will be too fast for many modern Tesla owners wishing to...

    Supercharger - Lake Forest, CA - Lake Forest Village Center (under construction Nov 2022, 24 V3 stalls)

    The posts on the other side have been installed now. I missed seeing the pads there before. It's been raining a lot the past couple weeks with more to come so progress has been slowed a bit.

    camp mode and 12v outlet

    I bought a 1500W inverter, but it sounds like I shouldn't use it on our MX 75D as I certainly want the HV traction battery warranty to continue. Maybe I should look into using it on our Hyundai Kona or take back the inverter.

    X Ideal Ride Height?

    2017 (December). I'm planning on trying standard for a bit, but the question is whether I should do automatic lowering at speed. Perhaps not if I'm doing this to save tire wear, especially since I can't rotate the backs to the fronts. Thoughts are welcome. The half shaft seems to be more...

    2019 Model X - Keep/Sell/Warranty?

    My advice is to get the extended warranty, speaking from someone with a used 2017 X75D with no basic warranty left. 4 years looks good. I've already spent a pretty penny on our X75D in repairs. If you like the car then go for the warranty. And oh yeah, we DON'T have unlimited supercharging...

    X Ideal Ride Height?

    I'd like to know more about this and the inner treadwear. I'm trying out standard now to see how that works. If tread wears more even on low than I probably don't want to keep using it, unless there's a significant hit to range at standard versus low.

    Charge port door sensor fault CP_w043

    It's in the shop now it's supposed to be done by tomorrow so I hope this solves the charge port issues.

    Model X: Average Wh/mile Tracker

    Well it's a pre refresh and I know that they made a lot of improvements with the Raven as well. Ours is an older model.

    Supercharger - Irvine, CA - Irvine Blvd (permit found)

    Yep, for sure! I've charged (or attempted) to charge our Kona there at EA but don't remember if I was successful. It's great seeing South OC getting some more love!

    Supercharger - Irvine, CA - Spectrum Center Dr (permit found)

    This is awesome news. Yeah, I've heard this about the Irvine Company, but the pressure to have a site at the Spectrum must be intense! It should be anyway. Urban chargers, I'd guess.

    Supercharger - Irvine, CA - Walnut Ave. (at Jeffrey Rd., LIVE 4 Dec 2020, 8 V3 stalls)

    Good to see. I've never actually charged at this site, despite it being the closest to home. It's always a madhouse. When Lake Forest goes online it should help significantly. We can see this Jeffrey site from the freeway and my wife and I are always looking to see how full it is (almost...

    Model X: Average Wh/mile Tracker

    Here's December's report. The new 20" wheels/tires were put on 12/6. With that in mind and being a partial month with the new tires, the improvement is 9.5% to 403 wH/mile, over November's 445. It will be interesting to see how it does in the coming months when it gets warmer.

    Bought used 2018 MX 100D. Considering some upgrades... advice?

    I think only the 3 and Y use CCS2 in EU, up to a certain year, but yes, I'd recommend it. No on FSD for me. I have 0 interest in it. Yes, I dropped my 22" wheels and much prefer the 20's. It wasn't cheap, but it works for us. Best,

    Supercharger - Lake Forest, CA - Lake Forest Village Center (under construction Nov 2022, 24 V3 stalls)

    We are back at Albertsons again and some more progress to show. And is it me or are these stalls taller than most? They're almost as tall as me including the pad so about 6 ft tall. Are these V4s or is it my wishful thinking? Edit: Looks like my wishful thinking. The V4s specs I'm looking...

    Charge port door sensor fault CP_w043

    Things are getting worse so I've scheduled the charge port replacement with Tesla. Charging keeps stopping now right after starting, and every time I have to restart it on the screen or app. Not fun. I've put this off too long...

    Supercharger - Tustin, CA - Flight Way (LIVE 20 Dec 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    It shows on our MXs map as of today, so maybe it's normal to take a few days.

    Supercharger - Tustin, CA - Flight Way (LIVE 20 Dec 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    This site still doesn't show up on my navigation. Is there something I need to do to update it when new sites are added?

    Supercharger - Lake Forest, CA - Lake Forest Village Center (under construction Nov 2022, 24 V3 stalls)

    Has it really been 8 days since I visited this site? In any event, lots of progress to see!

    Supercharger - Tustin, CA - Flight Way (LIVE 20 Dec 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    I just noticed that the ones on the end look to be non-operational so far cuz they draped the cables over the tops. So it looks like five of them are not currently online.
  44. Falcon73

    Supercharger - Tustin, CA - Flight Way (LIVE 20 Dec 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    Yes! We have a live site! It didn't appear on my map yet but it's working. I also don't see any indication of cost yet.
  45. Falcon73

    Supercharger - Tustin, CA - Flight Way (LIVE 20 Dec 2022, 12 V3 stalls)

    We have a transformer! Also I just talked to a couple guys setting it up and they're working on the firmware they expect to have at least eight of them operational today. The p posts are already powered up with what I expect is the liquid cooling system on each.
