    Using a Credit Card or Paypal to pay for TESLA Solar

    We passed the city inspection on Wednesday of last week, and the Invoice was there the following morning. It was pretty fast. Have not yet received PTO. As I understand it, you must pay your invoice before they ask for PTO. But I have not yet received PTO. Tesla agent said it's coming, but...

    Using a Credit Card or Paypal to pay for TESLA Solar

    Just thought I'd add my experience here for the group: I ordered a 8.16kW system, with 2x powerwalls, on 2SEP2020. I live in the SF bay area in CA. My final invoice was delivered last night. I logged on and found the ACH-only (plaid - ironic) option only. I emailed my solar adviser asking if I...

    Battery Upgrade Possible?

    Well, a new X would not only have a better battery, better range, etc., but also the new MCU, and AutoPilot Hardware3, which is way, WAY better than the gen1 AP in your 2016 X. You could also get almost all of that with a used or inventory late 2019 model, and a much lower price.

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    Who are "they" in this instance, these "other manufacturers" who are way more conservative with their battery estimates, placing software limits on range and charging speed preemptively to make the battery last longer? Just Porsche? You couldn't be referring to Nissan, that's for sure! LOL...

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    I keep seeing people mention stuff like this range/degradation check. Is there a wiki or primer or something on how to DIY these battery tests?

    If you fast charge, Tesla will permanently throttle charging

    So, I'm curious, if you were given a new battery right now, knowing what you now know about SC limitations and battery life limitations, would you be happy with that? If so, why is a new Tesla not an option for you? If not, then I think probably EVs are out altogether, right? I mean, isn't...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Look, yes it sucks, I'm one of the MS owners that don't get Theater mode. But hey - consider the plight of the person who bought a snazzy new, nose-refreshed Model S in September of 2016... stuck with AP1. No Summon, let alone smart summon No nav on autopilot No auto lane change (signal...

    Caraoke Not Working

    If you have an older MX you probably will not get Theater. MS and MX with MCU1 won't get it. I'm in that boat with my 2017 MS75. :( But I also have not seen Caraoke in the update on my car so I'm also wondering about that. Can anyone confirm Caraoke in an MCU1 model S or X?

    Extended Service Agreement No longer charging $500 more?

    I'd jump on that. Seems like an error. Mine still says $4750 for the 4 yr extension, which I'm really close to buying (car purchased in Oct2017 is at 40,000mi).

    Forum For Supercharging?

    I don't see a forum that's appropriate to post topics about supercharging, which is a topic common to all tesla vehicles, not just one vehicle type. Maybe we could have a forum for questions that are common to all vehicles (not just supercharging?) Then again, there's a forum for autopilot...

    Supercharger Kw speed

    Highest rate I've ever seen: 99kW & 334mi/hr, just now. Rate dropped a tad just before I snapped this image. I have a late 2017 s75, with 36.3kmi on the odometer.

    Upgrading to a larger capacity battery, is it possible?

    I wonder if those 75kwh software limited to 60kwh batteries show artificially less degression than a "real" 60kwh battery would, since any decrease in range could be hidden in the untapped capacity of the battery? I mean you could charge to 100% every time and Be really only charging it to 80%.

    Used 2017 Model X with Free Super Charging for Life, AP2, 7 Seater

    Not sure what you mean. You have a double negative in your statement which contradicts what the image you posted shows. Regardless, unlimited super charging is not transferable any more, and looks like your car is the same.

    Thanks for the responses. I feel a little better, but that warning triangle still makes me concerned. Also as for that anecdotal evidence ucmndd mentioned, I have noticed that regen seems to be less, er, "strong" for lack of a better word, lately. To the point where I have on more than one...

    I live in the SF bay area of CA, so not particularly cold at night (dips to low 30's F sometimes). Typical overnight winter temps are around 40F. And yet, every morning when I start driving my late-2017 S75, I get a little yellow warning triangle on the dashboard near the power meter, and the...

    Three-position dynamic LED turning lights in new, custom Model S

    I was under the impression that my inventory S75 was going to have these, but I'm not sure if I should have assumed that or not. At what point in time should production cars have started to have these lights as standard? My S75 is a base model that I bought from inventory last weekend...

    Delivery tonight: inventory S75, tips/advice/checklist?

    I would escalate that if I were you. They had some issues around this interest rate and end-of-quarter "delivery" goals. That rate is worth a couple/few grand over the life of a 5-6 year car loan.

    Model S P100D beats 11 supercars in Motor Trend "World's Greatest Drag Race"

    Yes, vinyl audio is, for all intents and purposes, dead; and so is CD for that matter. Vinyl is indeed "making a comeback" but it will never reach more than niche status among audiophiles. The vast, vast, VAST majority of music is consumed digitally, and on crappy audio systems too. Likewise...

    Model S P100D beats 11 supercars in Motor Trend "World's Greatest Drag Race"

    I see this video and the test / race itself more about the cars than the drivers. It's an achievement of the very technology that makes it so easy to launch. That's what it's all about (this Motor Trend video/test/race anyway). The only driver achievement here is reaction time, and steering...

    Took delivery of my fully loaded model S 75d with 21k discount!

    WTF? How does this happen? Seriously, I'm happy for you, but Tesla says no negotiation, no one gets a "deal" etc, etc., so how can you get such a low monthly payment? When I plug $101500 into the Tesla leas calculator I get something like $1500/mo for a 15,000 mile/yr lease. Can someone...

    P85D 2015 CPO $70k

    I think it's fair, actually. You may not care about the mileage, but prices do and should reflect high mileage, so there's that. Also body color roof is usually a pretty decent discount in CPO and private. Most people want the glass roof. Still a good deal, but those are reasons for the...

    60 mph; excellent road markings and AP2 tried to throw the car at the median

    EV $7500 Federal Credit - Alternate Minimum tax

    I don't even own a Tesla yet, or any EV for that matter. Just researching/planning. I might buy one this year, but most likely used so no credit. So if I could get a credit for the charger install, that'd be cool.
