    Supercharger - Shelby, MT

    I've found a utility location request for a site-design survey that might be for a future supercharger at the Shelby Best Western Inn & Suites right at the intersection of US-2 and I-15. I think it's right but, until there's some other confirmation, I'm ambivalent about whether it's enough for...

    Model 3 on Turo in Kirkland

    There's now a listing on Turo for a Model 3 in the Greater Seattle area. My wife and I are considering renting it for a day before configuring. $250/day is steep, but potentially worth it to see how the "sports sedan" suspension plays with Seattle streets. Kipa

    Snoqualmie summit Model X

    The last 6 years I've had an Audi S6 with aggressive snow tires (Blizzaks). I'm going up to Snoqualmie summit for a work ski event and was wondering thoughts on using the OE All Seasons (20" ContiSilent 265/45R20) to get around. I was looking at the chains but $440 for the OE chains seems...

    Taking a Model 3 to Alaska

    In 2014 I drove a Model S to Alaska (my Tesla Tijuana to Tundra Tour - T5). It should be a bit easier with a Model 3, so I'm thinking about going for it again. So a couple questions for the community. 1) Has anyone else taken an EV from the lower 48 to Alaska. I consider the ferry...

    Smoking FWD, resolved

    Model X: Towing a White Water Retro 15.5

    Took delivery of a Red 100D 9/11/17. We have 10,500 miles on it ~5 months later. Love this car! And Tesla Red looks as good on Earth as it does in orbit. I have had a couple of DOH!

    Parking at SeaTac airport

    Searching only yields a very old thread from 2013. Does anyone know of the best place to park near SeaTac airport? I know the airport-owned lot has 48 spaces for EVs with free charging but the daily cost is $30. Are there other lots around the airport which are good to park at that offer...

    The 3 is here!

    Picked up our blue M3 LR this morning! Wife's been driving it, so I only got to drive it in/out of the garage. :-) Couple things we've noted: - Got the homelink setup. You have to hold the remote really close to the bumper for it to pair. - GPS is not calibrated correctly yet...

    Rain-sensing wipers (Update)

    It's been "raining" here in Seattle all week. However, unlike Texas or Southern California rain, we often get a fine mist that coats (and obscures) the windshield in a way that seems to fool the rain-sense wipers. The problem as I see it, is that the rain is not coming fast enough to trigger the...

    Just received Model 3 configuration/order email

    I just received my email from Tesla telling me it’s time to configure my Model 3. I’m in the Seattle metro area. I’m NOT going to use this. Circumstances have changed (getting divorced) so my Model S is all I need and can afford. If anyone else is interested in using my spot in line - and...

    Navigation Deadend

    I asked my new Model X to "Navigate to Leavenworth, Washington" while fully charged in my garage in Redmond, WA (just north and east of Seattle). It dutifully drew the (only) route up State Route 2. Fine. However, it reminded me the return trip would leave me with -13% power. I can only assume...

    Just dropped off my month-old 100D for a surprisingly open-ended service appointment

    Pretty bummed. I've had the car just over a month. I've had a series of pretty minor issues until yesterday. The most significant was that I would park the car and the auto-presenting door would pop open again immediately. It wasn't the end of the world - it didn't happen often and once I...

Of course, even after the...

    Hello everyone We will be taking a trip from Seattle to Vancouver, BC in January in our S85D. The hotel we are staying at near Stanley Park does not have destination charging so it likely that we will be relying solely on the supercharger network. Given that it is cold at this time of the...
