    Looks great @silversurfer1! Can you share what you mean by cutting and glueing?

    180 kW peak at L3 Supercharger 100D

    I was pretty surprised to see my 100D peak at 180 kW and stay above 90 kW after 200 miles of charge. Not that impressive for 2020 S owners but just thought I’d share. :)

    For Sale: 2017 Model S 100D

    @komrade is that appliqué powder coated or did you use tape? I have 2018 100D looking to do something similar.

    Costco or Tesla Mobile Service for replacement tires

    Costco or Tesla Mobile Service for replacement tires

    Good to know. Favorite tire so far on the S?

    Costco or Tesla Mobile Service for replacement tires

    I just got my first flat tire today from a nail on the highway. I reached out to Tesla roadside and they were quick to respond and will be providing a loaner wheel while they determine if the damaged tire can be patched or needs to be replaced. I needed to get my tires replaced soon anyways...

    Legacy S owners, how many are upgrading to new LR or Plaid?

    Yup I would do it in a heartbeat. More model S’a than Camry’s in my neighborhood.

    Legacy S owners, how many are upgrading to new LR or Plaid?

    2018 100D with sunroof and lifetime supercharging. LR/Plaid interior refresh is striking but for $95K I’d rather ball out with a Taycan if I’m looking to upgrade and have something special on the road.

    Trade new M3 Aero wheels for sport wheels

    Hello, I’m looking to trade my new M3 Aero wheels for 19” sport wheels. Just got the car yesterday delivered yesterday and think I prefer the sport look. I live in the LA/Pasadena area. Let me know if you’re interested.

    Anyone interested in trading your sport wheels for my 2022 M3 aero wheels? Just got the car delivered yesterday so they’re brand new. LA/Pasadena area. Let me know!

    2022 LFP battery on Low SOC

    Delivered yesterday. Got the LFP and do not regret my decision. But I’m not a big fan of the aero wheels.

    What's your S 100D range at 80%?

    I saw this question from a 75D owner. Asking the same thing for all S 100D owners out there. 2018 (Dec) 100D w/ 28K miles. 80% SOC - 250 Miles

    2022 LFP battery on Low SOC

    Tesla's recommendation of charging an LFP-based Model 3 to 100% and improved battery degradation in LFP batteries were the reasons why we changed our order from a LR to RWD. We own a pre-raven 2019 Model S that went from 335 miles to around 315 miles when fully charged, so I'm currently getting...

    Cancelled Y Reservation for S Long Range

    That’s great. I love the layout of the Y, it feels so open. I love the S, it’s comfortable and I like the trunk space. My mother in law has the 3, it’s a fun car as well. To each their own.

    Phantom breaking getting worse on 2020.36.3.1

    2018 S 100D EAP 2020.36.3.1 MCU2 HW 2.5 My wife and I just came back from another SF-LA road trip and the phantom breaking was getting out of hand. I try to manage my expectations when using nav on AP for long road trips and anticipate phantom breaking when the car detects shadows or...

    Increase in phantom braking past 2 weeks?

    36.3.1 Hey OP, yes I just came back from another SF-LA road trip and experienced three pretty aggressive phantom breaking incidents. First two were at night with perfect line markings, only one car in the right lane as I was going 70 in the middle lane. No shadows or overpass, just changing...

    Suspension changes displayed on Instrument Cluster

    A few days ago I noticed a display notification on my instrument cluster in green that my suspension had either raised or lowered (one or the other). I don’t remember seeing this notification in the past and I haven’t had a software update since last month (2020.28.5). Today, I tried to manually...

    Land Ends Merge Left/Right

    Ok good to know. Yeah that’s what I do as well, and will let the car try to figure it out.

    Land Ends Merge Left/Right

    Overall, I’ve been pretty pleased with NoAP and the lane-keep assistance functionality of EAP in general, however there are a few areas that I feel could use some fine tuning, especially on longer road trips such as how the AP system handles merging lanes on the highway (not to be confused with...

    Question on 2018 Model S differences between months

    @DadtoTwo It looks like you’ve already done your due diligence regarding the hardware (MCU/AP) differences between the 2018 100D made before and after 3/18. I have a Nov 2018 100D and to my knowledge, the 4/18 and 9/18 builds have identical hardware. If by software you mean software versions...

    Personal experiences/stories with aggressive drivers in this season

    Yes, I’m mainly a middle driver as well and couldn’t agree more!

    Personal experiences/stories with aggressive drivers in this season

    What is coal rolled? Yeah it’s interesting that many pickup drivers are heavy footed. I’d be too concerned with mpg
  31. Bixby MS

    Personal experiences/stories with aggressive drivers in this season

    Exactly. But I always told myself I would restrain from doing that. It’s hard not to!

    Personal experiences/stories with aggressive drivers in this season

    So I've had my new 100D for about a month now and I've got to say I feel like the drivers (at least here in the bay area) are driving more aggressively and erratically than before the covid/SIP mandate went into place around March of this year. I've already been cut off and tailed more times in...

    100D owner: First loaner Model S (75D) experience at SC

    Good point! I guess the loaner vehicle depends on the SC and loaner availability?

    100D owner: First loaner Model S (75D) experience at SC

    @Magellan55 I should have noted that I have a non-raven dec 2018 100D build on MCU 2, granted that doesn’t affect the drivetrain.

    So I just dropped off my new inventory 100D at the local SC to get some work done (roof alignment and detailing) and picked up a loaner 2018 75D loaner Enterprise rental. The loaner has 20k miles and I felt a pretty noticeable difference in the way the car handles compared to my brand new 100D...

    Air suspension height adjustment using scroll wheel

    Yeah exactly, finger scroll or voice command.

    Air suspension height adjustment using scroll wheel

    I wonder if Tesla's decision not to implement it as a quick scroll menu option is more for security measures rather than a lack of programming by the engineers.

    Air suspension height adjustment using scroll wheel

    Hi all, new MS 100D owner here and I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to customize the dashboard and configure the scroll wheel (e.g. adjust air suspension height). As much as I appreciate the auto-save GPS detection suspension height, I find myself making manual adjustments on the fly...

    Unlimited supercharging on 7/1 for new X/S owners?

    Hey guys, can any new model X/S owner with FUSC confirm if the free charging has kicked in today (7/1)? I’m planning on taking a trip for 4th of July wknd and heard that it can take a few days for the FUSC to kick in. Thanks all!

    Going to purchase "new" 100D 2018 non-raven. Is this a mistake?

    If I had to option I would have gotten that color. Very nicely matched with the rims as well.

    Going to purchase "new" 100D 2018 non-raven. Is this a mistake?

    It does! Someone told me you know it’s mcu2 if you can watch Hulu/Netflix and I can. But I haven’t confirmed if that’s a true statement.
