    Change out Piano Black for Carbon Fiber trim

    Yeah I have looked at the Evannex application and it looks pretty good, but you can definitely tell that it's aftermarket if you know what you're looking at. Particularly around the AC vents. I'm hesitant to put down what are effectively stickers on my dash. If they ever started to peel off...

    Change out Piano Black for Carbon Fiber trim

    Has anyone done this via the service centers? One of my only regrets with my car was not getting either the carbon fiber or matte obeche trim. As I'm sure many are aware, the piano black is a fingerprint and dust magnet and scratches very easily. I've managed to take good care of mine but I'm...

    P85 vs. P85+

    This may be a little late for the OP, but I'll echo SomeJoe's comment here, as I just returned a P85+ loaner for my 85D and his comments are spot on. The P85+ is definitely punchier and feels like it has a little more muscle to it. I really liked the staggered rear tires. It seems quicker to...

    AC Noise - Loud!

    So I guess it's my turn to eat crow - got my car back from Tesla on Friday and they are saying that everything related to my AC noise complaints is totally normal and within design tolerances. So go ahead and dish it out...BUT that doesn't mean that I've changed my stance on the matter. I'll...

    AC Noise - Loud!

    I appreciate your commentary (and I'm not disagreeing with you), but if the noise+vibration issue is a known trade-off, then why is Telsa accepting my car into service for this issue? If it's a known issue, why would they not tell me that over the phone and at least attempt to discourage me...

    AC Noise - Loud!

    Jeff, I have to disagree with you here. I'm in the same boat as TSLA Pilot and find the whole noise/vibration thing extremely annoying and most definitely unacceptable for the class of vehicle we're all driving. That's not being dramatic, it's just an opinion and one that multiple people here...

    Concern Over Increasing Wh/Mile

    On that note, is there any way to tell what mode the circulation is in when you have in Auto? I will try keeping it on recirc though.

    AC Noise - Loud!

    Will do - they didn't push back one bit on the phone, so hopefully they will take it seriously.

    Concern Over Increasing Wh/Mile

    So I've done a bunch of experimenting on this issue since I made the original post - and all I can tell is that's it most likely due to my new shorter, slightly hilly commute, probably combined with the AC working harder to cool the car in the now hotter weather. I've also got some AC concerns...

    AC Noise - Loud!

    I've been having these exact same AC symptoms - loud as hell when the AC is on high and then occasionally I get a really annoying vibration that I can feel across the floor boards, the dash and the steering wheel. I took delivery in Oct 15 and only seems to have become an issue recently...

    Concern Over Increasing Wh/Mile

    Yeah I will definitely try this out, and I will also try my current commute without AC as well to see if that might be the culprit. I'll try Range mode as well to see if that helps. Does pre-conditioning factor into the Wh/Mi calculation? I would tend to think not since there is no driving...

    Concern Over Increasing Wh/Mile

    So I'm a little puzzled by a recent spike in Wh/mile in my 85D. I took delivery in Oct 2015 and have maintained a pretty consistent Wh/mi over the past 5,000 miles, usually hovering in the 300 range. My lifetime is 345 wh/mi and most of my driving is around the city with not a ton of freeway...

    Things that hang up Summon feature pulling into a tight garage - like mine

    Same issues here...exits my garage just fine but can't get over the lip on the way in. Aborts every time. I have a fairly tight garage so I could see myself using it to park the car when I have groceries or things to get out of the side doors. But alas, will have to wait until they provide a...

    SAS - Lowers before raising

    Ok this is good to know! Appreciate the feedback. I was always worried about the nose dropping into an obstacle (primarily my steep driveway) I was trying to raise it over, but sounds like that should not be an issue so long as I provide enough time for the front to raise up after the rear.

    SAS - Lowers before raising

    I've noticed that my air suspension lowers before it raises. Meaning, if I'm in "standard" and want to raise it to "very high," it will lower itself (seemingly) all the way down before starting to raise itself it up. Anyone know why it does this? Just curious.
