    Thank you ! It was my misunderstanding. :(

    Model X 75D Real World Range

    To be fair, it is $10k and not $12.5k, because the 90D already comes with air suspension which is a $2500 option on the 70D, also you get active spoiler but I can't estimate how much that is worth.

    Powder Coated 20" Factory Wheels.

    It's gloss, only cost me $350 + tax, and additional $40 for buying the center caps & nut covers from Tesla. :)

    75D vs 90D

    The answer is simple. Because the 60D's battery isn't really 60 kWh. The 60D is a 75D with battery's capacity limited by software. Which means they could tune it up to provide exactly 200 miles of range (ideal, not rated or actual) as they advertised.

    Protecting the back of 2nd row seats

    Anyone who could suggest kick mats / seat covers for the 2nd row seat? I've tried 3 different kinds and they don't fit. The difficulty was at: (1) the size of the mat (the distance between the top strap and bottom strap isn't long enough), (2) the seat belt (the bottom strap must be clip in...

    75D vs 90D

    I am happy that I chose the 75D, for the price bump of $10000 (price difference $12500 less $2500 for Air Suspension which is standard on 90D), you get so little boost in range: (257-237) x 90% = 18 miles, and takes 20% off from there which is consumed by A/C and other conditions, will be around...

    Model X 75D Real World Range

    I live in Orange County and found out the fact as below: - Ideal Range on 100% charge = 237 miles - Ideal Range on 90% charge = 212 miles - Actual Range on 90% charge = 150 miles *(yes, we lost about 30% from A/C, we drive the car VERY gently, we did have to use A/C quite a lot while the car is...

    Powder Coated 20" Factory Wheels.

    No problem, I actually found out Tesla sells the carter cap and nut covers, at incrediblely low price. They are $5 /ea and $1 /ea, yes you read me right, one dollar! This is probably the cheapest thing sold by Tesla, ever.

    Powder Coated 20" Factory Wheels.

    I dropped of the car today to a shop for powder coating, they charge reasonable price for the wheels, and asks $3 per wheel nut and $5 per center piece. Although it is only $80 more to do all, the business owner is honest enough to warn me that because those are plastic parts, the paint might...

    All-Weather Lloyd Mats Installed (pics)

    I am ok at the price of the mats themselves, they are reasonable -- $65 / two pieces for 1st row seats and $65 / one piece for 2nd row seat, but this company (Evannex) wants $64.33 shipping fee for those two products? And that's not even expedite shipping, but FedEx Ground. No way, that is a...

    question about scheduled charging

    Thanks @gravity, I guess my concern is only because I haven't have 240V circuit installed yet, I am charging via 120V at 3 miles /hr rate.
