    Irresponsible thoughts of upgrading my Y to an S

    Since you have a 2016, I hope you’re aware that you can now transfer your free supercharging to a new car if you take delivery before December 31. Obviously, it would strip it off of your old car.

    Irresponsible thoughts of upgrading my Y to an S

    I meant "Lower" as in the roof line, head height on entry, being an old guy. The car has adjustable Air Suspension, and I take it everywhere. It is CCs compatible, and I recently drew 251kW at a V3 Supercharger. The Long range 405 "rated" miles is a game changer. Frankly, any more than that that...

    Irresponsible thoughts of upgrading my Y to an S

    I am on my third Model S. 2015 P85D, 2017 90D and my current 2022 Plaid. While I loved my first two, the refreshed Model S is so much better. It has matured nicely. The interior is much nicer. There is active noise canceling in the cabin now. No real need for the Plaid, need vs want. I was...

    Supercharger not showing in app on phone or map

    Put the Hamilton Supercharger as your initial destination, then edit the route, adding your ultimate destination, then edit route to correct the order. You can also put in your final destination, then add the Hamilton Supercharger. The newest added spot is always added to the top of the route...

    Do I need to charge the battery weekly if driving only 100 miles a week?

    If you have a garage, and a home charger, always plug it in. You could adjust your charge level to 100% weekly. You will use the same amount of energy either way, but an Earthquake happens, it would be nice to have a full charge.

    At what point in the ordering process can I add the roof rack for a model Y ?

    Check with your sales advisor, but if you have to order it separately, you usually have to have your VIN already assigned to your account.

    SoCal Edison "TOU-D-PRIME" Super Off Peak - How to take advantage of the lower rates?

    You should be able to by using scheduled charging and set it to depart by 4:00 AM. Obviously don't let it sit for a long time if you charge to 100%. It will start charging whenever it needs to, set by your charge level target, to be ready by 4:00 AM

    Broken Tesla Mobile Connector

    I will put a couple links below this for you to check out. For me, the trick has always been do the reset, and if that doesn’t work, change it to one of the other adapters. For instance, I’m using a 14-50 adapter, and when I switch to the 120 and reset it, it seems to work. Then I put the 14-50...

    road trip to Mammoth October 1st week

    I’ve traveled to Mammoth right around 1 October for four different years. Except for a very freak event, I don’t think you will have any issue with snow at all. I do recommend that you possibly go farther north from Mammoth, Because that is a wonderful time of year to view the fall colors of the...

    Will I Regret a LR X Given Known Issue?

    Most of the tire issues are with the larger of the wheels, in this case 22" and the 21" on the Model S. I have heard more about it on the Model S than the V. But, that could be confirmation bias, since that is the threads I read more. My third Model S was delivered over a year ago, no tire...

    TPMS sensor battery failed

    You might consider doing the other 3 at the same time. Otherwise, one more will go within a month or two. You might get a better deal on a set, and the programming. Good luck.

    Wheel/Tire Questions

    I found a set on craigslist of brand, new, takeoffs, 19 inch with the Pirelli tires. For my winter tires, I mounted Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta R5 EV from American Tire. They are staggered and the OEM size. I absolutely love these tires, they are quieter and smoother than the Pirelli‘s. They...

    New owner ?’s

    Congrats, you will love driving it and look for excuses to drive. In my last Tesla, I added the security system, but that had them remove it, since it disabled, the cabin overheat protection. You live in Fresno, and I live near Sacramento, so overheat protection use vital. It was primarily for...

    Model S Door Handles - Original v. New Cars

    I can only offer anecdotal evidence. Well, I live in a moderate climate area near Sacramento, in the winter, the car goes to Lake Tahoe, two or three times a week. Usually, it is not overnight. I’ve done a few midwinter trips, where the car gets very cold and frozen in the Rockies. March 2015...

    Which is better deal? 2022 M-S 32k miles or 2021 25k miles with Arachnid—same price

    Which is better deal? 2022 M-S 32k miles or 2021 25k miles with Arachnid—same price

    Arachnid cost more, but 19" are better range, smoother and don’t wear out as quick. Depending on the actual production date, there are some updates that the 22 may have.

    It seems that you also need to make sure you swap airbags. I love my Yoke, once I got used to it!

    Another annoying software change, car temp.

    Set it to what you want, then slightly move your seat. Tap save. In previous software, I used to see it. Pop up a little "saved to profile" when I adjusted the temp. Haven’t seen them in a while.

    MS Plaid 19" Tire replacement

    I live in Northern California and traverse the Sierras in the Winter. I bought a set of Summer 19's that someone took off when new to get custom wheels and tires. I loaded some great Nokian full Winter tires on those wheels. It gave me a second set of Summer Pirelli's. Americas Tire Swaps for...

    (Lack of) Superchargers in Whitefish, MT

    With, "less respect", I have charged at the Red Lion on two different trips from California. My comments are valid. Since you are new to this forum, it is easy to assume you are not an expert, and to try "coach" people on best practices. Most people don’t take offense to that. I guess I won’t...

    PLAID Raised Emblem Model S Community Input

    Oh my plaid came without the smooth plaid badge in the lower right corner. It was on backorder. Once it arrived, I decided to put it in the center on the rear deck lid, where the “T“ is, and I love how it looks. I may opt, since I have the newer tail lights, to get the new lettered bar that goes...

    2020 model S charge port door

    Sometimes it shuts too far, and the pointed end gets stuck too deep. A plastic knife will convince it to open. Once it’s open, where the magnet hits, you can spin it to extend it out farther so it doesn’t shut all the way. This may not be the problem with yours, but, I have seen it on three...

    Supercharger - Mariposa, CA (LIVE 12 May 2023, 12 V3 stalls)

    On my way out of Yosemite, today, May 14th, it showed open. I arrived with about 155 miles of range left on my Plaid Model S. It initially got up to 240kW. Taper seemed normal. One thing of note, yesterday, I pulled into the pull in bank of stalls. I used the on farthest right. When I backed...

I made sure that I got juice in Merced just to be sure. When I arrive, it still showed off-line, but I was able to charge fine. as...

    Model S Options Question

    5 or 6 colors, 2 or 3 wheel sizes, 2 or 3 interior colors. 2 or 3 performance/battery sizes. 3 flavors of Autopilot/FSD. That is about it. All so production can be streamlined, and the cars can be switched if someone declines delivery for 2 or 3 reasons (see what I did there?).

    How to keep the car on?

    You could set the HVAC to A/C itself off and set the temperature to the lowest(so it won’t heat), fan speed on 1, but leave HVAC on. The fan itself will use negligible power and be quiet.
