    Floor mats suggestions

    Those are excellent. Which style is that? They don’t look like Kagu in the picture. I have the Elegant weave and really like balance between coverage and softer finish.

    FOB Update sought

    Try one of these silicon key fobs with normal ring attached. They are the best and won’t come off. https://abstractocean.com/products/msy3-fobpockets Then perhaps attach an Apple AirTag so can can track and find them with your phone if necessary. This assumes you have an iPhone. You can even...

    Front License Plate Holder on refreshed Model S

    As you “saw” with fishing line, the car is barely being touched. It’s going through adhesive and leaving most stuck on bumper. Just pull slightly outward towards you so it’s closer to frame. I used polishing compound on bumper after removing adhesive to really clean it up. Any detailer can do...

    Model S order changed from MSM to Stealth Grey

    AP 2.0 hardware

    I stand corrected; you got me wondering so I went "back" to 2018 and ordered my car again.

    AP 2.0 hardware

    That's correct on both points. But for my 2018, EAP only added Summon, Self-Park and Auto Lane Change. TACC / Autosteer were part of the "base" AP. Perhaps that's because I had AP2.5 / MCU2 in that car? I had no idea that earlier base AP (2016, etc.) did not have TACC. Tesla has changed around...

    AP 2.0 hardware

    I believe every Tesla with 2.0 + has at least TACC and Autosteer. That is the base level of AP, with EAP (Summon, Lane Change) and FSD as the two available upgrade levels (EAP has not be offered at times). I've never heard of AP 2.0 + car with just "dumb cruise control."

    Safe-lite changed driver door glass now door open button doesn't work

    When mine stopped working the symbol was no longer lit. The firmware update fixed it. Good luck.

    New preowned model s 2018

    Plug it in :) Pick 80 or 90% and charge daily / as-needed for longer life. Enjoy the ride, and spend some time to practice using AutoPilot. Walk through each of the menu options under Car symbol, and learn about how settings change the features. Many have little (i) symbols with addition info.

    AP 2.0 hardware

    In addition to above comments, 2.5 is upgradeable by Tesla to 3.0... only if car was purchased with Full Self Drive (FSD). If not, 2.5 has upgraded cameras, a faster AP processor, and better Sentry features.

    Safe-lite changed driver door glass now door open button doesn't work

    I've taken the door panel off my '21 Refresh to replace the side mirror. There are 4 special bolts to remove and then some clips (couple YouTube videos are online with decent instructions). Anyway, they may have neglected to reattach a wire. Are your windows still working? Also, I had a strange...

    057 Technology

    Agreed, likely several of those. Connecting the dots with other information, one post says that "Jason told him the business was sold" and wk057 himself says above that he's "not as much in the loop as a year ago". So one could surmise the business was sold, Jason is under NDA, and the new owner...

    How to fix this scratch

    It’s hard to see detail with the reflection, but it appears the door has numerous scrapes from side to side, not just the ones that went down to metal? This is way too extensive and deep for the paint repair kit. The entire door needs to be refinished and painted, and it appears the bottom...

    Purchasing 2017 p100d

    This car would have AP 2.0 unless produced after ~ Sept. 2017, it "might" have 2.5. AP 2.0 is not upgradeable to 3.0 given changes to sensor suite, etc. Regardless, FSD 3.0 doesn't solve the current gaps and Tesla has moved on to 4.0 with new cameras and radar added back. I personally would not...

    Model S - FAQs

    Nothing else was removed, but other components have been upgraded. Primarily HW4 for AP, new cameras and apparently the radar is back. In 2022, the LED headlight upgrade was released along with new taillights and charge port.

    2018 P100D vs 2019 Performance (raven) which to buy?

    Raven all the way; 1-pedal driving experience and smoother regen braking are worth it. And since no one else said it, don’t bother with FSD. Standard AP will provide most of the value. Many other threads on that topic. To answer your question, I had 2018 before Refresh and believe the camera...

    I’m not positive, but from what I’ve read and what Elon said during Earnings call, HW3 cars cannot be upgraded to HW4 (assume that means processors, cameras, radar, wiring harnesses). https://electrek.co/2023/08/28/elon-musk-reassures-tesla-hw3-owners-bums-out-hw4-owners/ However, the cameras...

    HW4 was released around March ‘23, so you likely do not have it. Regardless, your car can support FSD… but please review everything that’s been reported about it. In summary, FSD doesn’t add much value except some parlor tricks. Enhanced AP has nice features like auto lane change and summon...

    i can confirm this does make a huge difference. 50% setting is sufficient to make ride comfortable for my spouse. Still need to be cautious with acceleration given torque.

    The Tesla utilitarian interior design is certainly not for everyone. But I’ll take the Tesla integrated UI over any of the competitors. And I’m happy to be rid of the excess buttons and other controls (except turn signals and horn 🙂). The Tesla seats aren’t as nice, but new sound system is...

    2022 Model 3 Performance trade up to 2023 Model S Plaid - handling differences

    I agree with that statement completely… they were too expensive. Just saying the price was not dropped because luxury was not on par with competitors. On the contrary, pricing on competitors is even more out of whack now, relative to what you get.

    2022 Model 3 Performance trade up to 2023 Model S Plaid - handling differences

    IMO, that’s not why Tesla is dropping the price. They have significant pricing power and production efficiencies, and can be more competitive. Prices on Audi GT, Taycan, etc. are exorbitant relative to range and performance (despite more luxurious interiors).

    Considering a Plaid...but do you think it's "worth it"?

    Tesla is selling at large “discounts.” My buddy just bought Plaid demo last week for $102 K, about $13 K mark down. New ultra red, 21” today is $97 K 🙃

    Tesla has been making and breaking FSD promises of autosteer on city streets coming soon for 8 years.
