    Turning on rear A/C, 2016 pre-refresh?

    5 Seater doesnt have rear AC. Only the 6 & 7 seat options come with rear ac controls.

    2022 Model X LR delivery for sale (April delivery ETA, Seattle)

    It is posted above you. 5 seater…. So it’s not getting delivered any time soon.

    2022 Model X LR delivery for sale (April delivery ETA, Seattle)

    Why do you want everybody to DM you rather than just post the ask in your for sale thread?

    Model X P100D with Ludicrous FSD and Free Unlimited Supercharging - Late December 2016 build

    OP is a liar and is simply saying anything he can to get a sale and justify his $12k markup from when he bought it from Tesla.

    Model X P100D with Ludicrous FSD and Free Unlimited Supercharging - Late December 2016 build

    What they tell you will happen vs what will really happen are not always the same thing. Tesla advisors have absoultly zero authority and if they remove it later, they have less than zero power to get it back.

    Model X P100D with Ludicrous FSD and Free Unlimited Supercharging - Late December 2016 build

    Just a heads up. OP is a liar. Wednesday, OP stated the car has been sold and already in the new owners possession. Thursday (the day after it was already sold and transferred), I messaged OP on TRED requesting a test drive. He quickly replied and stated that it is currently still...

    Blog Lucid Will Delay Electric Luxury Sedan

    You realize that VW had huge production issues and delays on the iD.3 right? VW missed their initial delivery goal by nearly a year. In the initial production run, VW the world largest manufacture, was only able to produce 30 a day. Ford also missed its delivery dates by more than a month...

    Can you please post a picture standing back 10' or so and from the side? I would love to see how much it protrudes.

    2018 Model X 100D for sale. Reus audio, black wheels w/ red calipers, full body clear bra.

    The price is already lower to account for wear and lack of warranty. A smart buyer would understand how the market works and stop trying to further discount for issues that haven’t happened. That is commonly referred to as trolling. Also please stop PMing me with your stupid retorts. I’ve...

    2020 Tesla Model Y

    Unless someone deleted comments, not one single person claimed they could get a new Y Performance for $57k.

    2020 Tesla Model Y

    This isn’t a new car anymore either so best to compare it to used cars
  15. JamesBrown

    2020 Tesla Model Y

    Tesla sells show room models for discount, they typically have <5k miles. You can easily get a Model Y Performance with FSD for $62-65k. So it’s really like you’re getting it for 52-55k and comes with 1 additional year of warranty.

    2020 Tesla Model Y

    Oregon has 0% sales tax on car purchases.

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    It is pretty much impossible for you to tell if a Tesla has FSD unless you are the owner or have access to the car. Only way to tell is have the owner verify on the Tesla app or get in the car and verify the Upgrades window has FSD listed. Some people have had luck calling a SC and getting a...

    Looking to sell A BEAUTIFUL 2016 90D X WITH FULL WARRANTY UNTIL 5/2022

    A 16 AP1 90D for $65k? I am going to take a guess that you didn’t check any comps before posting. You should check out ev-cpo and vroom to see comps.

    2018 Model X 100D for sale. Reus audio, black wheels w/ red calipers, full body clear bra.

    “Could” is the key word. They COULD also have zero issues. You COULD also try contributing a relevant comment for a change.

    FS: 2021 Used Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD

    Sadly Autotrader, Cars.com, TRED, eBay, ect do exactly zero verification that the person listing a car for sale is the actual owner. One of the best benefits of OnlyUsedTesla.com is that they do vet sellers to verify they are the legit owner. Sucks that someone tried to scam you, but at least...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    It is far more than the gas tax I use to pay on my daily commute ~25 miles a day. GA gas tax is one of the lowest in the entire country and the yearly fee is generally more than majority of drivers would pay. Using an average 25mpg, GA drivers would have to drive more than 16,930 miles per...

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Its a mixed bag. There are many instances of homepage coming first. The Model Y SR release, the S/X cream interior, the S/X range increase, the 3 P- release, addition and removal of FUSC, ect. There are many times were people first knew about a Tesla change due to the website updates.

    Killowatts is just a Tesla fanboy page. That is not his Y and is simply posting information that was passed to him from an un-named source (commonly referred to as a leak). Edit. In your link someone even asked him if these are being delivered already and he replied "I wish we knew". So that...

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Basic maintenance. Every single manufacturer in the world, besides Tesla, shuts down their plants on a yearly basis for 1-2 weeks to perform routine maintenance on the production line. Ford shuts down all 9 of their plants every summer for this. The one any only reason this normal function...

    Hundreds of people working there. If there was a major change like removal of FWD, Plaid, New Interior, ect... someone would have said something and there would be rumors of it all over social media. The only way it wouldn't be plastered everywhere is if there was no changes or simply minor...

    So 1st full day of S/X production line back up and running.... I for one and completely shocked that there isn’t a single report of a refresh or any major changes. I mean Tesla is so well known for their punctuational refreshing of their vehicle lines.

    If you download the app Stats, you can schedule heating/cooling. You can also add Siri Shortcuts to open the trunk, not quite the same as foot sensor but works well with voice command on an Apple Watch. At least it helps with 2 of your issues.

    Congratulations to the Porsche Taycan folks as the current EV Cannonball Run record holder vehicle!

    I bought an X because I need the size for my family, but if the Taycan was the same price I would have told my kids to suck it up and squeeze in the back.

    Legroom Difference 6 Seat vs 7 Seat

    The 2nd row legroom is adjustable for both 6 & 7 seater, they move forward and backward the same amount. No legroom difference. The 7 is better for wider people though, the 6 seater captain chairs are on the narrow side and larger people find them uncomfortable. I’ve had some of my male friends...

    Sold 2017 Model X for Sale

    Would you be willing to trade your CF trim for Obeche wood trim plus cash?
  40. JamesBrown

    Got my carbon fiber steering wheel.

    Looks significantly better. The Fisher-Price designed steering wheel is one of the worst features of the 3.
  41. JamesBrown

    Legroom Difference 6 Seat vs 7 Seat

    There is no difference in legroom to the back of the 2nd row seats. But the 6 does provide additional room because you can sit slightly diagonal with your knees in the open area. It’s surprisingly comfortable with 6 normal sized adults.
  42. JamesBrown

    Congratulations to the Porsche Taycan folks as the current EV Cannonball Run record holder vehicle!

    The Porsche has better quality, comfort, performance and looks. Tesla has better value, range and software. Honestly if I could afford a Taycan Turbo S, I would trade in my car in a heartbeat. The Taycan is absolutely beautiful in person and I absolutely love seeing a company challenge Tesla...

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Rarely does someone just randomly decide they want a car at nearly double the cost. There might be a tiny percentage of crossover. Last year one of my best friends traded in his BMW X6M for a Volvo XC90. It doesn’t mean they are comparable vehicles. Either way the Y will have no impact on MX...

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    Agreed. The 3rd row on midsize SUVs are borderline useless. It is why, even as an available option on the X5, almost no one gets it. The 3rd row on the MDX is very tight and the MDX is a foot longer than the MY with 35% more cargo space. The MDX 3rd row is measured at 28in of legroom...

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    The Model Y will have no impact on the Model X sales. They are very different classes of vehicles that appeal to different types of buyers. That is like claiming the newly released 7 seater BMW X5 series would eat into the X7 series sales, but the X7 sales doubled and X5 sales dropped 17% the...

    What is best way to resell model X

    2017 100D 2020.48.30 - 5 KW idle drain per 24 hours?

    You're semi right but your math is a bit backwards. He said "The idle drain over 72 hours was 15 KW", which means a total battery loss of 15kWh over a 72hr period (not 15kWh per hour over a 72hr period). Usually phantom drain is reported in mi/hr though, not kWh. For a 100D, that 15kWh of...

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    You also forgot better display layout with actual dashboard, better performance, more head room, more shoulder room, more towing capacity, better stereo, self presenting/closing doors, and heated steering wheel. The X is better in pretty much every aspect except price.

    Major 2021 Model X refresh pending [Update: Unveiled January 27, 2021]

    I said seats 7 comfortably. https://electrek.co/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2020/01/20200118_tesla_model_y_1.jpg?quality=82&strip=all The 3rd for in the X is already tight for an adult and being a foot shorter, the 3rd row in the Y will be unusable for anyone over the age of 6.
