    Installation: Model X Enhanced Anti-Theft

    Given the tint on the rear windows— i’d agree that their placement choice is poorly chosen for your vehicle. They are also quite small. Personally, I’d ask them to give you another set of decals if you are unable to move them.

    Installation: Model X Enhanced Anti-Theft

    5 days if you include the weekend. You select the install location of your choice at time of order. I got a text when the parts arrived and I scheduled an appointment via the app. — Order online date: Thursday, March 14th (evening) — Parts arrived text message notice: Tuesday, March 19th (morning).

    Installation: Model X Enhanced Anti-Theft

    Yes. They are just static cling stickers— you can take them off and put them on again.

    Installation: Model X Enhanced Anti-Theft

    Quick rundown on the Tesla Service installation of the Enhanced Anti-Theft "accessory" for my Model X. Here is the new replacement dome-light assembly with holes for the new sensors which can be seen on the sides: Sensor controller assembly with left and right sensor probes: Two window...

    What is this?

    Maybe the connector for the front trunk light? I changed all of my interior lights to brighter LEDs and this connector looks similar— do your trunk lights work? (This is just a guess). What part of the front trunk does the cord run into? Or is it loose?

    Autopilot worth the money?

    If you drive in traffic (like I do in my commute)— I would definitely recommend it. I use it daily and my commute is a rather short distance. I find it way more relaxing to drive with it.

    Who is responsible for updating delivery status on Tesla Account?

    Hidden CyberMonday buy one get one deal? ;-)

    Who is responsible for updating delivery status on Tesla Account?

    As the Delivery Specialist (DS) is responsible for all delivery items— I would assume (not positive though) that this would include overseeing and updating the delivery status data along with either the inventory location folks or the factory folks. I doubt the updates come from a singe person...

    I need some help with the Tesla online store

    PM’d. Escalated for Executive Review should get you a reply immediately (at least that was my experience). Also just consider swinging by a SC (if it’s close) — sometimes they have extras of basic things like this.

    Missing Tow Package?

    Mine was missing as well— they added it to my Due Bill at delivery for a service afterwards. The parts now seem to be backordered with “no ETA”. At least they added it...

    Delivery in Fremont vs somewhere else?

    That will be a great road trip north! If you have not done it before— consider checking out Multnomah Falls and Hood River.

    Delivery in Fremont vs somewhere else?

    Do the Fremont pickup— they have a brand new pickup location that is quite nice. They also have a fantastic espresso bar. Most importantly, they also have the ability to resolve minor issues there. The location is about 5min from the factory. The Freemont Factory tour needs to be pre-arranged...

    I need some help with the Tesla online store

    Consider escalating the issue for “executive review” via the Tesla Executive Care Team. This is done by logging in to my tesla on the website, select your car, and use the online web form. You should get a response immediately (this has been my experience). You can also call the Tesla Vehicle...

    Has anybody with a Model S or X 75 kWh battery ever seen a charging rate of more than 100 kW?

    Dublin is horrible... I have have fast charge rates there a few times— but it’s so rare... Sadly under 60kW seems the average...
  25. Ski_

    Has anybody with a Model S or X 75 kWh battery ever seen a charging rate of more than 100 kW?

    Yes. On two newer different MS 75d loaners. Both were on i5. It only seems to occur when the battery is on the low end and in the evening when it’s cooler out. (Not unusual).

    Hoarding of Public EV Parking Spot

    This is where signage language makes a difference: “EV Parking Only” vs. “EV Charging Only” or every better “EV Parking Only While Charging”. Little nuances like this do make a difference. Most (not all..., but most) folks care and education really does help.

    PSA: Tesla loaner from Enterprise has cruise, but not adaptive (ACC)! Close call..

    Yeah— after looking at the customization options on tesla.com— it does not even list ACC as part of EAP (nor does it list it as a standard feature either). Clearly EAP is required— I’m surprised as it is a common feature in so many cars these days.

    PSA: Tesla loaner from Enterprise has cruise, but not adaptive (ACC)! Close call..

    The intent of the post was not to blame folks, but rather to inform others through sharing— hence the PSA notice. I just edited the post a bit to make it clearer that I’m not indicating Tesla is at any fault for a driver not understanding a vehicle.

    PSA: Tesla loaner from Enterprise has cruise, but not adaptive (ACC)! Close call..

    I picked up a loaner from Tesla Service (Fremont) and I received an MS 75d (from enterprise apparently)— Awesome! I was expecting a ICE! :D So far so good— I hoped on the freeway and I found that the AP2 car did not have EAP enabled— not a big deal. It did have cruise control. I set curise...

    Tesla Referral Program

    From my understanding: one needs to wait for all 5 of the referred orders to be delivered to unlock it. Here is the relevant quote from the Referral Program description: “once all 5 take delivery”— But, I’ll let someone else confirm this who has it unlocked.

    My Top Tesla Accessories - What are yours?

    Fantastic advice— read it all and just beginning to digest it. I’ll let you know where I land— I’m in for sure with your recommended fridge (and I do have a West Marine near me) and I appreciate the espresso advice. Thank you again @TaoJones !

    Background for newer folks— Here in the US, our Tesla’s have streaming Internet radio provided via Slacker Radio (Slacker.com) over AT&T’s cellular network. This is free, with the car, for at least 4 years (probably more...). Some people love it and others like it less (a lot less...). Tesla’s...

    Premium Upgrades Package no longer includes phone dock?

    I encountered the same thing when I picked up an X with PUP last week. During pick up the delivery specialist clarified is is no longer included in the PUP. You can always ask at pickup if they have an extra cable (they may not have the side holders)— worked for me, but I genuinely was expecting...
