    Model X 90kWh battery pack degradation

    Excellent news! Especially considering that the two vehicles have approximately the same mileage: our MX is from late March 2017, has 65,510 km and 377 km of range at 100% SOC. Due to the pandemic it has not been driven since the end of October, 2019, sitting at 60% SOC.

    For sale: Tesla Wall Charger - Silver - with CEE 32A 3 phase Red Socket

    @webbah : I also had that thought - but if you look closer the orange supply cable for the TWC disappears somewhere behind the mystic wooden box. The grey socket attached to the side of the box is a one-phase 220 V and has nothing to do with the TWC. Happy Easter to both of you, glad that...

    Extended Warranty Switzerland (Tesla Anschlussgarantieversicherung)

    Good morning @PatrickCH4313 : Thanks for asking - this is getting to a little anxiety-rich subject :eek:. As Tesla Luxembourg has steadfastly/stubbornly refused to pick up the vehicle at our home (due to Covid-19) we saw no other way to keep calm than spending these 3,610 EUR before the month...

    SR Model Y Available Off-Menu per Elon

    @jcanoe : Sorry, thought it had only been modified, not discontinued - then of course it doesn't matter.

    Model Y still available off menu

    @jcanoe : Sorry, thought it had only been modified, not discontinued - then of course it doesn't matter.

    Model Y still available off menu

    Hi, "Off menu" = order in store = no 7 day return policy AFAIK. Clever, Elon!

    For sale: Tesla Wall Charger - Silver - with CEE 32A 3 phase Red Socket

    Hello again @webbah, OK - if what you describe as "DIN RAIL 40A Circuit Breaker" is effectively the RCD/Fehlerstromschutzschalter Type A EV, then of course there's no problem, and at 400 CHF/371 EUR for the complete kit the price is very attractive indeed. If these times had been "normal", I...

    For sale: Tesla Wall Charger - Silver - with CEE 32A 3 phase Red Socket

    Hi @webbah Sorry for late response. I gladly accept that your installation may be legal according to Swiss electrical standards. However, if you care to have a glance at the forum of Tesla Fahrer und Freunde, you will find endless threads on precisely that subject - and a solution like yours...

    For sale: Tesla Wall Charger - Silver - with CEE 32A 3 phase Red Socket

    Hi, you are aware that the connection you suggest may be feasible, but due to the lack of supplementary protection (RCD) in the TWC, illegal, at least in most parts of Europe? Otherwise it's an excellent offer, but if you have to count in between 200 and 300 EUR for the RCD, a little less so.

    Refurbished wheels instead of buying new ones?

    Hi @Myfirstone : essentially what you mean is taking your Model S winter tires to a retreading/recapping plant, have YOUR own tires recapped, and then put them back on? I don't know if it's feasible, and anyway I find it way too risky, for environmental reasons, to drive a Model S on recapped...

    @PatrickCH4313: Thanks - from some of the earlier posts in the thread I got that impression. Good to know.

    Extended Warranty Switzerland (Tesla Anschlussgarantieversicherung)

    Hi, I don't really understand the need to "contact" Helvetia? As far as I can see you just enter your VIN, model, mileage, first registration date, choose 2 or 4 years, and pay. I'm still 2½ months away from the need to buy the warranty extension, and hope it's actually as easy as that. Due...

    Rear hatch privacy cover.

    Hi Steve, this: would of course be very, very nice - but as we're located in Europe (and currently stuck in the Philippines) a bit difficult. But if anyone else sees your post, and is willing to let you take the necessary measurements, we'll be among the first clients!
  15. krouebi

    Rear hatch privacy cover.

    @2000154: Too bad you don't offer something similar for the 5-seater MX - we have been looking for something like that ever since we got the otherwise excellent vehicle nearly four years ago - and as due to the price cuts and subsequent vertiginous drop bin trade-in value we're going to keep it...

    Elon has learned his lesson from the Model X and applied it to the Y

    Hi @gangzoom, sorry about only getting back to your question: after more than a year. In fact, it might have been a question of being over-cautious! Since I wrote my post here we have cancelled our MY reservation/order (which was for the now unavailable LR RWD), and will probably keep the MX...

    Model Y wheel options

    Hi, bad news for European MY buyers interested in all-season tires (the European Teslas generally come with summer-only tires, and in many European states winter or all-season tires are mandatory): the only all-season tire available in 255/45-19 doesn't have the three mountain peak symbol, and...

    Rear hatch privacy cover.

    @Electric Steve : Maybe, but sound output will inevitably suffer - as it will by putting luggage in the luggage compartment. What a silly place to put full-range speakers!!

    Rear hatch privacy cover.

    @sling Excellent observation - so that means bye bye, also to possible aftermarket offerings. What a pity!!

    Model Y - Hands On

    Hi, Not so sure about that - the MX has been around for half a decade without this happening.

    Model Y - Hands On

    Hi, first of all a big thank you to @SilverSmith for your enormous patience in replying to all these more or less silly questions. Here's mine: looking at the photo of the rear seat seatbelt latches it seems to be a little difficult to latch the two outboard belts if the center portion of the...

    Cybrtrk RN #

    Hi, #1127895** 58 minutes after the unveil started. CC (AMEX) went through, but still pending. Nothing in the Tesla account (yet). Screenshot of RN# made.

    Have to pay for the 5-seat load floor?

    Hi, a part number for this 5-seater lower load floor, anyone?? THX!!

    The REAL reason I’m excited about the Model Y...it’s not the Model Y

    Hi @Latorre, the 20" rims were on the vehicle when we bought it - and we prefer those over 17 year old corroded 16" rims which would otherwise be the case :p.
  25. krouebi

    The REAL reason I’m excited about the Model Y...it’s not the Model Y

    @mikefocke : Well, this X owner is really going to downsize to the Y ;)! I don't really think the Prius V is much bigger than the Y - it does of course have a more squared-off rear end, but it's about the same size, and if anything, the Y will be bigger. We have enjoyed the time with our X...

    The REAL reason I’m excited about the Model Y...it’s not the Model Y

    @Latorre : Meet "Dino": - according to the licence plate it's an "X" - and an "EV" ;)....

    The REAL reason I’m excited about the Model Y...it’s not the Model Y

    @MrMannnilow, Nice ride, could need some prettier wheels, though. Our other vehicle besides the X is an '02 Tahoe.....

    Elon has learned his lesson from the Model X and applied it to the Y

    Hi, keeping the X beyond the end of warranty period might be an expensive option, precisely due to the magnificent FWD. OTOH, doing away with the roof crossmember between the B-pillars and keeping the forward one was a major delusion when seeing the Y - but not major enough to keep us from...

    New Referral Program (March 2019)

    Hi, re-reading the small print (again!) @MXWing and @Dutchie are of course right: FUSC'ers get a supplementary chance of winning one or other of the vehicles instead of the 1,000 mi FSC

    Model Y Seat Configuration

    Hi, We suppose that the amount of additional room choosing the 5-seater over the 7-seater will be somewhat comparable to the advantage you get in a MX - with the additional advantage of the triple-split (and sliding?) 2nd row. What we REALLY hope for is a decent luggage cover/tarpaulin/blind...

    New Referral Program (March 2019)

    Hi, Both will get 1,000 mi free charging. In this way the new system is more equitable than the previous ones, where the buyer got 6 mo. free SuC and the referrer a (signed) TWC already after few referrals, and hideously expensive wheel sets after three. "Equitable" of course only for...

    Performance Y without lowered Suspension

    Hi, thanks to @Watts_Up for the video ! This might indeed become an issue for us when we get the MY. Our previous non-air suspension 2016 MS had to be driven into the garage at an angle in order to avoid scraping its belly, and our current MX has its air suspension programmed to raise there -...

    New Referral Program (March 2019)

    Hi, since we're not able to use it ourselves (MY orders not eligible (and our MY already ordered on 03/17)), please DO use this one.

    What’s Your Favorite Color for the Tesla Model Y?

    Hi, as you can see to the left, our MX is blue, and thus named "The Blue Whale". Our much-regretted MS, "Frecciarossa", was, as the name says, red, but we considered that color a little too bold for a MX, ergo blue (that also to a certain extent "hides" the black plastic wheel arch...

    'Chrome delete' standard

    Hi, supposing that M3/MY are supposed to make money for Tesla it does seem illogical to have identical parts (door handles, mirror supports, front side camera surrounds, and possibly parts of the side window surrounds, plus some of the badging) in chrome AND black versions. Having ordered...

    Model X Crash on US-101 (Mountain View, CA)

    Hi, should there not soon be something more definite coming up?? The accident happened on March 23, 2018 - that's almost 11 months ago.

    Evolution of the Model X 5-seater trunk

    @TechVP : Yes indeed - at the time we switched from S to X the "real" secondary load floor wasn't yet available, and as we had tested and tried our MS load floor (part no. 1005534-00-F) successfully, we ordered (and eventually got) one - at a whopping cost of 242.74 EUR plus taxes = 284 EUR...

    Did someone throw something at my Tesla? Help investigate, please

    Hi, not nice - this looks similar to what we had happen to "Dino": our other vehicle (in the Philippines) in February - a stone/rock thrown at the car while driving through a village at around 1.30 AM. Happy that the b*st*rds did not have a better throwing force/aim - a little higher and...

    Model X Crash on US-101 (Mountain View, CA)

    Hi, well, it's an improvement on what it was before. But seen from Europe, one wonders what a gallon of white paint costs in California?? Over here, the chevrons are twice or thrice as many, and at least the lengthwise limitation line to the right side of the gore area could also have been...

    Follow up to employee termination

    Hi, I have the ever slightliest of haunches that @eshipp may be part of these 700...... A total of three posts, all in CAPS, all about layoffs at Tesla, and the poster is located in Las Vegas..... Sorry, but layoffs happen, and while it's always bitter to be on the receiving end, life goes...

    My Model 3 Got Wrecked Today :(

    Hi @tutugirl, do you seriously mean that this damage: was considered by your insurance company enough to total your Model 3?? Quite astonishing, as the damage looks fairly similar to what our Model X suffered shortly before Whitsun, and which was satisfactorily repaired (by a...

    Evolution of the Model X 5-seater trunk

    Hi, and welcome aboard!! The 5-seater MX definitely comes with the two level equalizing floor boards (enabling a flat load floor when the rear seat is folded). I don't know if the board covering the "well" towards the back of the trunk is standard or not. AFAIK, an "upper cover" (i.e...

    Politics - Quarantine Thread

    Sorry folks, but however heartbreaking this story: might seem, the money would have been seized upon arrival in Europe anyway (and the guy wouldn't have been able to walk away free). Travelling with amounts of cash like that is just not wise to do....

    Can set of 22” turbines fit in rear cargo area of MX?

    Hi, tomorrow we'll try something different: EIGHT 22" wheels & tires, in the back, 2nd row seats down, front seats fully adjustable . Kind regards from Luxembourg krouebi

    Can set of 22” turbines fit in rear cargo area of MX?

    @Yinn, according to my information it should be possible, albeit with impaired rear mirror visibility. Kind regards from Luxembourg, Europe Krouebi
