    Model S Plaid heating system sucks!!!

    The weird thing for me that it isn't no heat, it's actually what it's calling for ironically, but not what I'm used to. For instance, the Tesla OEM settings for temperature go to 81 degrees I think and then the next increment instead of 82 is HI. With it being on HI, it continues to increase...

    2021+ Model S and Model S Plaid Refresh Issues Thread

    I’ve learned not to pick at these cars, else I be unhappy and miss German quality, lol. This is the best iteration by far tho. They’re slowly improving, just doesn’t feel fast enough for all of us and the issues are glaring it feels.

    Model S Plaid heating system sucks!!!

    I tested out my heater again today for about 2 hours. I turned on my wife’s 2020 Model X and my Plaid at the same time in the same garage, hers heated to 111 degrees on full, mine topped out at 82 degrees and wouldn’t go up any further. I loved the heater on my 2020 Perf S, hoping software or...

    Key card storage

    I think an advanced way to do this is to hide the key card in an RFID protective sleeve, shielding it's transmitting capabilities somewhere within the cavernous armrest's hidden areas.

    Welcome buddyg! I remember you from the Porsche forums of yesteryear. That guards red 996 turbo was beautiful. I migrated here from Porsche in 2013, haven’t looked back

    Interior map light upgrade

    Does anyone make a kit or bulbs to change the yellow map lights overhead to white or light blue? My 2013 P85+ seemed to have a bluer hue to them, while the newer ones seem to have yellow interior map lights. I checked the usual suspects (Abstract Ocean, T Sportline, and EvAnnex) but didn't see...

    +1 for this. I'm interested in seeing if anyone has wrapped the chrome in CF to match the spoiler / interior performance CF.

    2020 Model S Performance- Front end feels squirrely at higher speeds!

    I have the same experience as you, also came from a 911 turbo prior. I’m interested to see what remedy you find. It’s hardly noticeable, and only under hard acceleration I’ve seen.

    Reverse parking a S

    I've actually found that reverse parking the model S is easier than parking head-in with a potential high curb in front of me. I use the camera and the passenger side mirror as aids, but I don't turn my head.

    Tesla increases Model S and X Supercharging rate to 225 kW

    The fact that I know my 2013 P85+ charges so much slower than my wife's X is part of the reason we exclusively take her car on road trips. It's also a contributing factor to making me want to get a newer car. Honestly, I stopped visiting TMC as much when all of the conversation seemed to be...

    NHTSA Investigates Failing MCUs

    Mine actually went out last weekend and luckily Tesla reset it without replacing it, but I'm told this may be an indication it will need to be replaced. It could be part of the reason for me to replace my aging 2013 P85+

    Instrument Cluster slow to load on startup

    Good morning, Recently I noticed my MCU screen went black, took it to SC, they did a reset, which cleared all settings, but brought the MCU back to life. Since then, I’ve noticed my instrument cluster is much slower to load than previously. Now, I have to wait 15-20 seconds for the cluster to...

    Model S deliveries slip to 8-12 weeks

    I’ve been toying with the idea of ordering a new S to replace my 2013 P85+ and this week I’ve seen the delivery estimate change from 1-3 weeks to 8-12 weeks tonight. Is this a sign of an imminent upgrade forthcoming? I’m programmed to seeing delivery estimates slip and there being a new...

    Heater not maintaining settings

    it's definitely not auto-mode, if I change the setting in the car it saves heated seat preferences for when I want to pre-heat, but no matter what the AC toggles back on and the air direction changes back to feet every time I pre-heat.

    Heater not maintaining settings

    Nope, just changing from directional face to feet and toggling AC on from off

    Heater not maintaining settings

    I’ve been noticing every day when I get in my car, the temperature (set to HI in the winter) is still maintained, but the directional setting for air flow is changed to the lower (towards the feet) direction instead of the towards the face setting that I prefer. Also, the toggle for A/C is on...

    under 10,000 per year

    Isn’t it conceivable that other manufacturers of higher end sports cars will start to build similarly performing EVs? It feels like we passed the tipping point a few years ago when Porsche starting developing their Mission E / Taycan, but since then adoption and development have been extremely...

    2013 Model S update question

    I got in a minor accident in my Model S just a few minutes ago where my front bumper and hood made contact with a crossover in front of me. My front bumper and hood will need replacement, and I am thinking of updating it to the 2016 refresh look now that the parts will need replacement anyway...

    Getting windows tinted

    Depends what you're willing to spend, how talented this individual is, and how much value matters to you. If you're willing to spend around $800-$1k, photosync is by far the best. Best of luck to you.

    Terrible experience as first time tesla buyer

    It seems Tesla made an oversight that they should have noticed, glad it's easily resolved. Not quite sure that would warrant a "terrible experience", but I guess that's subjective. I came to this thread expecting multiple glaring mistakes.

    Show off your aftermarket wheels.

    Those arachnid's look good on grey. I wonder how they look with a grey finish similar to the 21" grey turbines on a black car.
