    Tesla Wheel Lug Nuts for Model S

    There have been a number of types used. On my 2014 Model S the lug nuts have a chrome sleeve over them and this is often distorted by power tools that tyre shops use to remove a replace them. Later models I understand have a removable cap that comes off before you use a tool to remove them, thus...

    Cybertruck Waiting Room - Australia

    I have zero interest in a vehicle like the Cybertruck, but after watching this YT video of Jason Cammisa’s 3 day test, I’m beginning to see what an engineering achievement it is. The video is worth 1 hour 22 minutes of your time but the language is NSFW.

    Cybertruck Waiting Room - Australia

    I can only assume that if you click through on Learn, then the Get Updates and sign up for information you will be telling Tesla that there’s interest in Cybertruck in Australia and they may be more likely to make one in RHD.

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Sounds like your landlord is spending too much time listening to 2GB and Fox News. All you can do is point out that EV sales have reached 8.5% of the new car market in Australia and he or she will be running into this problem increasingly in the future and they need to think about how they will...

    Australian Model 3 Waiting Room

    What you are describing is Car Relay Attack where thieves attempt to remotely clone your security device, fob or phone in this case, to unlock your car and steal it. All Teslas have an option to turn on PIN to Drive, where you have to enter a 4 digit PIN into the touch screen before the car will...

    Tesla opening up the Supercharger network in Australia to other brand EVs.

    A mini Cooper electric has the charge port on the right rear so would have to take up the parking space on the wrong side of a Supercharger taking 2 out of service but it looks like it could be done.

    Australian Model 3 Waiting Room

    My Model S does not have ventilated seats, but I've seen a few cars with this feature and can't say I've seen this as a problem that couldn't be solved by a good vacuum followed by a wipe with a damp cloth.

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Having owned a Tesla for going on 9 years I have seen the complete gamut of Tesla service levels. In the early days it was terrific, but that's likely because there were so few cars on the road and not much going wrong. As time went by it became harder to get an appointment, but when they...

    Australian Model 3 Waiting Room

    If you like white, order it and don't worry about staining. I have a Model S with creme leather and new jeans do leave a slight mark, but it cleans off with a wet cloth or just any good upholstery shampoo if you leave it for a long time. Since I applied leather conditioner it is more resistant...

    Charging from Excess Solar with Teslapy

    My Ego mower is approaching 10 years old and is still going strong. The battery died under warranty but was replaced by a slightly higher capacity one by the manufacturer.

    Bluetooth and Phone

    I have a Model S. When an incoming call arrives, two boxes with a green and red phone icon appear. I tap the green one to answer and it comes through the car speakers.

    Model S 12v battery

    For what it’s worth I had a new 12V battery replaced in September 2022, just over a year ago. Cost was $242.00 which included fitting, which is not easy on the early Model S. The service was done by the mobile service, originally for an issue with my wipers. As my car was turning 8 years old at...

    Cascading rainbow

    It sounds like you have activated Raibow Road. This is an Easter egg in the Autopilot software that activates if you press to activate AP a number of times in quick succession. I think the number is 5 times but I’m uncertain. The only way I have been able to turn it off is to reboot the centre...

    Weird indications.....

    If the 2 finger reset doesn’t work, you can try the Wheel Configuration reset. In the Service menu click on Wheel Configuration, select a different type of wheel and click confirm. The car will reboot and the instrument and centre screen will reset a few times, takes about 4 to 5 minutes on my...

    Active Safety Systems

    Earlier on in the development of Autopilot, it had difficulty in detecting stopped traffic and there were a few incidents, including a couple of crashes. More recently it’s become a lot better, but it’s an indication that detecting a stationary object is surprisingly difficult without also...

    Sydney to the Southern Highlands questions

    The extra energy that you use on the way up you gain back on the way back down to Sydney. In addition there are now really good charging and facilities at the Pheasants Nest roadhouse.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    My favourite experience around that time was shopping at Harris Farm at Bowral, in early 2015 when my car was weeks old. A mature gentleman approached me and demanded to know what sort of car I owned. Almost accusingly he asked, “I’m a car enthusiast and don’t know what sort of car that is!”...

    Changing ECU 1537264-00-B to 1537264-20-B

    Theoretically the only differences between CCS1 and CCS2 are the plug design, but your case shows that there’s more to it. The export and sale of JDM vehicles is common throughout Asia. I’ve just come back from holidays in Sri Lanka and every car I got into had Japanese characters on the...

    Changing ECU 1537264-00-B to 1537264-20-B

    Just realised that you’re in Malaysia. So assuming you have a JDM Model 3 then I’m not sure if the CCS1 upgrade is available in Japan yet, as CCS is not a popular charging standard in Japan. Possibly Japan based members can advise. I do know that the CCS1 adapter is available in Korea and that...

    Changing ECU 1537264-00-B to 1537264-20-B

    Based on the below thread, this part seems to have something to do with the charging system on your Model 3. CHADEMO is the most popular standard in Japan and all JDM Model 3 should work with the Tesla CHADEMO adapter. Perhaps you have found a CCS1 charger you wish to use? In this case you will...
