    I've modified my tesla model 3 and wall connector to make bitcoin payments for electrical energy using the existing data communication wires inside the charge cable. Payments are made for each 25 W*hour of energy over the bitcoin lightning network. This results in a payment being made every 16...

    Tesla Model 3 Service Issues

    Model 3 Standard Range Plus Service Issues: a somewhat reasonable rant. Please read to the end. This is long, here is a summary: I just barely missed out on free supercharging miles, I missed out on white (which is a paint I wanted but couldn’t muster up my wallet for. This is a stupid remark...

    Has anyone retrofitted motorized charge port yet?

    Has anyone upgraded to motorized charge port yet? Yes, it can be done but it seems like it may be a huge pain. Im just curious if it has been successfully done yet so I'm not reinventing the wheel. The main issue seems to be mounting the required Gen II charge port. Any pictures/videos would...

    Guy Messing With My Charge Port

    I was parked at a public charger overnight when a random guy walked up and Sentry mode activated. It recorded him checking out the interior front and back (nothing was on display) before messing with the charge port. Not appreciated. This was all the shots of him that Sentry mode recorded, I...

    Charge Port Door Replacement Cost?

    Does any one have any idea roughly how much is it to replace the charge port door? This is for a model x 2028. Mine broke off lower hinge while trying to plugin at a supercharger, then it flew off on the highway and now I have no door, the motor works fine.

    Charge port doesn't open with finger poke

    I've had my S for two years now and I remember being able to open the charge port with just a finger poke or slight push. Now I noticed in the past couple of weeks that I'm not longer able to do that. Did this feature get removed/changed? Or is my charge port door acting up? If it's broken, I'd...

    Just a bit sad with minor M3 issues

    Sorry for my ascent and love Tesla as company and M3 as a car but I’m just pissed after paying so much and then find such imperfections and blatant ignorance. Model 3 fan? Me, too.. still.. but be informed buyer and watch this.. Part 1: Part 2: Oh and it’s a “production hell” experience...

    New Charge Port - press to open

    Just took delivery of my S90D last night, and during the walk-through was shocked to learn that you can now press on the charge port door to open it! I didn't see any threads on this yet; apologies if I missed it. The magnet appears to now be enclosed in a soft button that depresses slightly...

    Charge Port Door will not stay closed

    Noticed an issue today with my 70D. Charge port was open. I could not "push" it closed, so I used the Tesla App to close port. Port opened back up after about 5 seconds. I closed port with touchscreen and port reopened. I rebooted touchscreen and port closed, then reopens. I also pushed...

    new charge port behavior

    After 6.2, the charge port is now opening with the button on the mobile connector regardless of door lock state, when parked at the 'home' location. Can anyone else confirm this feature for themselves? I think it is great. And the only other home GPS tagged feature I would request is auto fold...

    Charge port door not closed completely

    Noticed yesterday that my charge port door is sticking out about a quarter inch after closing. It used to close flush to the car. Has anybody else had this happen? Was it an easy fix? It really looks tacky this way. Sorry for poor image quality. Just so there's no confusion - God I love this car!
