Yes, that is true. Luckily Tesla has superchargers all over the country that can charge to 80% in 1 hour. I used these to get to Flagstaff and back with no problems at all. Just had to stop for 1+...

I see. Any electric or plug-in hybrid car will pretty much require you to use a 240V outlet. I had mine installed in my garage for $400. For a Tesla, you just need typical electric stove plug...

I get your point, except limited range... Unless you regularly drive more than 200 miles a day, range is not an issue.

Those only work if you are paying attention to them ;). To my wife's defense, backing out of our garage is a beeping frenzy so it's not strange she ignores the beeps.

Luckily, we are able to make the insurance claim... Two collision deductibles cuz we can't pay liability to ourselves, but one ding in her driving record.

Yes, I'm fully aware that a Chevy SS is a buy proposition, and, very likely, a close to msrp buy. Still a fantastic value for what you get.

rear brake pads

It's normal with newer BMWs to wear out the rear pads before the front pads, due to the DSC.

DTC & DSC issues "Help"

Throttle goes back to comfort mode... Doesn't affect actual power... You just need to give it a little more to get the result you want.

If you start in sport mode then hold DSC until it is off, your car goes into comfort mode with all driving aids off, but the steering should stay stiffer... Go figure :P
