    Supercharger - Bethesda, MD (Permanently Closed, Oct 2016)

    Over the weekend I noticed that the a notice has been posted on the charging units at MM that this temporary location will be taken offline. Sorry, but I didn't note the date so someone else can post that info. For those occasions where I made a list minute decision to take a road trip or...

    Supercharger - Laurel, MD

    Glad to see they found a location and are moving ahead but I just hope that this doesn't mean that the "temporary" location at Bethesda will go away after Laurel opens. Long term, there will be a much greater need for distance charging with the addition of MX and M3 fleets out there.

    Hold me!

    I would say that you will love it but I don't know you. I would say that you will have the same experience I have had and that you will think it is the best car you have ever owned, but again I don't know you. I would say that I have never heard of a survey where 97% of respondents said they...

    Waze Livemap

    This is ok, but using Waze on a smartphone gives much better info IMO. Better yet...we need intgrated Waze-like info on our 17" screens. See this thread: Tesla: We Need WAZE Now | Forums | Tesla Motors It has been suggested that the more people that submit requests to TMC, the more likely...

    So what happens when multiple X's park next to each other?

    In normal circumstances the two Model Xs will simply sniff each other out and try to determine if there is a mutual "interest". When combining this ritual with the added electricity from "plugging in" at a SuperCharger I think that the net result would be little Model 3s in about 9 months.

    New X Reservation now indicated for second-half of 2016

    As of now it appears that they have rolled it back to "early" 2016.

    Waze Integration Starting to Show up in Google Maps

    Quite simply, Waze is far better than the current combination of TMC/Google Navigation. We Need (integrated) Waze Now! More on this is located here: Tesla: We Need WAZE Now | Forums | Tesla Motors Please add your comments to the "We Need Waze Now!" thread at teslamotors.com

    Firmware 6.2

    I did a short test and I can't wait to get it out on the highway later on today or this weekend. WOW! I felt a very similar feeling in my stomach just like when I launched a P85D in Insane Mode. I can't believe how fast the S85D is now. Holy Shiiit! I would not be surprised if the S85D with...

    Tesla cuts 60kWh Model S, entry-level Model S is now 70D.

    "Starting today, you can also order any Models S in three new colors: Ocean Blue, Obsidian Black, and Warm Silver." It looks like TMC also adjusted the delivery price in the USA from $1,170 to $1,200. (I edited this as I had the wrong figure in my original post.)

    Autopilot TACC - still a work in progress

    Thanks for posting. I feel like TACC is a work in progress and will improve over time. Nonetheless you have a responsibility to be in control of your car and to drive it with great care and attention - even when using cruise control or TACC. I also think that drivers should allow 7 car...

    Model S Order & Delivery Tracker

    Breser, thanks for maintaining the spreadsheet. I have updated my delivery status as well as KennyB@FL's to reflect 2/28/15 and I changed my Estimated Delivery to "February" since that was the original estimate.

    Tracking Model S 85D Delivery Thread

    I took delivery today and I now have a Tesla grin! The S85D drives beautifully. It has outstanding speed (I personally think that the P85D would be a waste for me). I drove the car a little on the highway and a bit around town today. The car is absolutely a pleasure to drive. It may take me a...

    Tracking Model S 85D Delivery Thread

    I got an update from my DES this morning and got great news. My S85D is expected to be onsite in Rockville, MD SC this Friday and my delivery has been moved up from 3/13 to this Saturday at 1 pm (same as KennyB-FLL)!!! Looks like I will just make the original "February" delivery estimate.

    mspohr, Congratulations on taking delivery! Thank you for sharing your initial experience with the car and the factory. It is possible that you saw my black S85D while you were there (according to MyTesla it is being prepped to be shipped to me in Rockville, MD). I hope to take delivery in...

    Tracking Model S 85D Delivery Thread

    I see that some others on the forum are frustrated and I can appreciate that. It looks like my wait time is drawing closer to an end as MyTesla updated today to: Production Complete Your Model S is being prepared for pickup or delivery. Yes!!! Estimated Delivery remains "March". I am hoping...

    Tracking Model S 85D Delivery Thread

    I received an email from DES yesterday confirming that my S85D in fact is in production and may be ready for delivery earlier than the previously estimated time frame of March 13th. My DES indicated he won't be in a position to give me any better timing until the car is in transport to Maryland...

    Energy Federal Credit Union

    I applied at Alliant for my S85 and was approved for the full value of the car, but then I cancelled it when I switched to the 85D in October. I called them back to start the process again but I asked if they would match or beat the DCU rates for 65 months (1.24% with a checking account and...

    Premium Rear Console

    I have ordered one so that my kids don't complain that they have no place for drinks and adults are more comfortable with the arm rest.

    Model S Order & Delivery Tracker

    Breser or others, can you explain the color coding you are using in the Excel file? I see that some information from me (User and VIN) are in a light red or salmon color? Just curious.

    Tracking Model S 85D Delivery Thread

    KennyB-FLL - she is awesome. Have you named her? I have a suggestion that I think could help both of us. I think that I should probably head over there in a few days and test her out for you to make sure that she rides just right. That way there won't be any surprises when you get into town...
