    X-Care Experiences

    @X-Care EV I submitted a customized quote request around 11am - but haven't heard back. How long does the custom process take? I'm exactly at warranty date - I literally heard about you folks this morning, as I was considering buying the Tesla one. thanks

    MCU1 with HW3 dashcam video. Very bad

    Did you ever get this resolved? I always thought it's my memory cards of choice - and have been through several, with same results. I had a loaner vehicle for an extended time, and used my trust pi teslacam - and lo and behold, the videos were spotless. So it's probably MCU1/AP3 related

    Sentry mode bug - 556 alerts!

    but what I find strange is the other two cars, same garage, no false alerts. Maybe it's my cameras - my videos seem to flicker a bit - I wonder if that's what causes it to think there's movement.

    Sentry mode bug - 556 alerts!

    I think it depends on the vehicle my personal vehicle logs hundreds of sentry events per night in my garage. it's a 2018 Model X, MCU1 I had two different loaner vehicles - both had MCU2 - and they had NO false alerts in my garage. I like to leave sentry ON at home 1. so that my pi with...

    Tire selection for Model X

    Thanks - I had called the America's Tire place near me - and they won't touch a Tesla, apparently. I ended up going with the Michellins, but seem to be backordered. Depending on how long it'll take, I might go with the pirellis.

    Tire selection for Model X

    A year later, how did this work out for you? I've been calling around - and most won't install same size if the vehicle calls for staggered. I'm leaning towards the Michelin's because supposedly they earn a 3 peak snow symbol for excellent snow performance. I don't have the space to store...

    14-50 Nema outlet /mobile connector wall mount

    Not sure on MY, but on my MX, it's about 1% per hour. I took my mc when I took a trip in 2019. It came in handy at my BiL's house, as well as a hotel we stayed at that didn't have a destination charger. It was either pick a hotel that had a charger, or stay at a place that was closer to where we...

    14-50 Nema outlet /mobile connector wall mount

    Thanks! It's perfectly safe from damage. But, as you suggest, I do need to get a something for the connector end.

    14-50 Nema outlet /mobile connector wall mount

    Just wondering, is it safe to lay the cable flat on the floor if it's not a trip hazard? I had my Gen2 Wall connector installed on the front of the garage so that I can charge outside. The cable is a lot thicker than I thought, so I'm planning on leaving it laying flat, on a lip that I have in...

    Directions for creating a USB drive

    OKay I finally got mine to work.. first I used command line format in windows. Worked for a few minutes and died. then Explorer DOES let you format FAT32 (basically because that's the existing format). and instead of a quick format, I did a long one. I thinkit took two long formats before it...

    Nail in sidewall - repair/replace? SC or 3rd party?

    wow crazy... that almost looks like it's in the flat part. Mine actually offered to remove the labor fee and even said if i buy it online, they'd install it.

    Directions for creating a USB drive

    Any troubleshooting advice? I formatted using an older HP USB tool - set to FAT32, and created a TeslaCam folder. But i get that beloved X on the icon. Do you need to enable it somewhere, or should it recognize the drive and just start recording?

    Nail in sidewall - repair/replace? SC or 3rd party?

    Hopefully some breakthrough in tirs comes up before my replacement. I remember my parents used to spend about $400 on their car. My minivan clocks in at $700ish... $1600 is a WHOLE lot - esp because i feel like the tires will not last that long given the hard acceleration/cornering that's bound...

    Nail in sidewall - repair/replace? SC or 3rd party?

    OUCH! What'd that cost ? Close to $1600?

    Nail in sidewall - repair/replace? SC or 3rd party?

    Yeah - i normally get my tires from Costco.. will probably transition to that eventually. Does Tire and Wheel protection cover road rash? That I would LOVE!

    Thanks everyone ... I ended up bringing to SC. I am going to be driving in horrible weather for a long stretch tomorrow, whole family in tow. just don't wat to risk it. The good thing is that they said they'll take off the labor cost. Also, he did say I cna buy it form TireRack, or whereever...

    3D MAXpider Kagu mats -- Mfgr looking for Refresh 2017 Model X to scan

    Maybe Quote or PM the OP... seems to have gone ghost... perhaps the manufactuer is no longer interested? I'm trying to be patient, but for the first time, I see that the Tesla branded ones are out there now. Makes me seriously think about just getting those and calling it a day.

    Tipoon Camp Trailer

    I'm hoping to see rentable versions of these soon. It would be cool to rent one for a week and hit the road. I love that they have a bathroom and kitchen - gives it the go-anywhere attitude.

    Tow Hitch Opening

    I was going to say the same thing - what if we get a hole-saw and cut just the right amount? fit some rubber grommet/bushing around and boom, keep in there.

    Tesla App Feature Wish - Crack the Window Open

    I would love a close all windows too. Every now and then, i've noticed my windows slightly opened (by a passenger or whatever), and it might be a day or so before I notice. The car is garaged when at home and where available, but still.

    No-Hole Front License Plate

    Dude this thing ROCKS! You are above the LAW! seriously! the flaw with the law is that it floats. Using the delivered holder is genius! It fits snug, and the worry of a love tap ruining the plastic grill goes away. I almost want to buy another set - for my next Tesla - probably won't be for...

    Navigation System Needs Service

    Mine started workin on the return trip back. I thought this whole navigation update was a bit more than just maps? But either way, I think people are saying you see it on the console and not via app notification, so who knows.

    Navigation System Needs Service

    i'll be back in the car in less than an hour, will see how it goes. I still don't have that latest maps everyone's talking about. I'm on 2018.12, but the maps look the same.

    AP2.5 2018 MX I was sitting in slowish traffic (20 to 30mph) and about to exit 20 - the dash light up with warning...lane to the left of me was moving slightly faster and a largish truck was somwhat over his line. I could swear the steering wheel moved me over to the right. Am I imagining it...

    Model X may qualify for 50% business write off.

    I think it depends on the carrier. both Geico and Liberty Mutual shot me down. The commercial ones weren't willing to cover such an expensive to repair car (their words). I think the only one was Progressive that would even remotely entertain it.
  37. AxeBro

    Model X may qualify for 50% business write off.

    This was near imposssible in NJ - requires commercial business insurance, and lot of the ones that I called wouldn't cover aTesla. Best I got was from a broker that got a quote from Progressive for almost $4,500 a year. While that in and of itself is also a write-off, the stipulations were a...

  40. AxeBro

    3D MAXpider Kagu mats -- Mfgr looking for Refresh 2017 Model X to scan

    hopefuly OP can give us an update - the way I see it - this thing is a one time purchase. If I end-up settling for one of the other available ones, I probably won't give this a second look. I don't mind holding out a month or so, but really need to get something soon after.
  41. AxeBro

    Chiming in here for X Seater config with Center Console. Taking March delivery - I love the design on these - definitely the best designed ones out there. The other popular one does not have that lip that goes up - which is a detractor for me. Good luck!

    Blackvue Dash Cam - Step by Step Installation

    Thanks, i'm editing my order to drop that. So the 12V will always be charged by the battery pack, even if the vehicle isn't moving? And that'll happen even if the main battery pack isn't plugged in/charging?
