    Door leather lifting

    I had the same thing happen recently on my 2017 model S. They told me it would require replacement of the whole door panel. Since I am out of warranty I’m going to try the heat blower idea.

    Vendor “X-Care EV Protection” - First 3rd Party Service Agreement for Model S, Model X and Model 3!

    Just picked up a 6 year extension for my 2017 Model S where the warranty is expiring next month. Fingers crossed nothing goes wrong between 10/15 and 10/29!

    Traveling back in the day was a bit of a pain, but totally worth it.

    Please Help! Drive unit seal not covered under warranty as part of drive unit??

    I received an invoice I had to agree to prior to my most recent warranty repair (headlight) also. Once they confirmed it was warranties, the cost went away. Kind of a backwards way to present it to customers though.

    Supercharger - Indio, CA (8 V2 stalls)

    Attempted to charge here on the way in from Austin on Tuesday - how on earth is this site not marked degraded by Tesla? 1/2 of the chargers give between 4-10kW or are broken. The cluster-f of this charger delayed my trip by almost 2 hours to get into Riverside. I sent a note to Tesla -...

    Supercharger - Van Horn, TX

    Over a year and still broken? Planning on driving from Austin to LA next week - Van Horn is necessary, huh? Maybe I bring my Chademo and do an hour @ the Days Inn instead.

    To Sell or to Trade-In....New Long Range X Ordered!

    I used the blinker app to sell my S - as long as you’re cool meeting up at a bank to do the transfer, all should go well and you’ll get the most money.

    To Sell or to Trade-In....New Long Range X Ordered!

    Sell private. You can ask for a refund on the extended warranty, they will provide.

    Do you keep a electric scooter/ bike in your MS to use while charging?

    Seriously? Y’all carry things around to get away from superchargers? This is some next level stuff. And, yes, I’m jealous.

    Remove Visor Airbag Stickers

    I used rubbing alcohol. Put it on there with a very damp paper towel, let it sit for about 45 seconds, and begin gently peeling. It gives it a weird texture in the end, but should come off completely.

    Latest firmware+app is preheating all seats when heating car.

    Three-position dynamic LED turning lights in new, custom Model S

    Yes, I have the setting and it's enabled. Just doesn't seem to actually do anything. Brought it up at my last service visit and got this response. My 2013 didn't have adaptive headlights (as they didnt exist then), and did the EXACT same thing with the lower fog lights - so I think they're...
