    FalconHeavy caravan?

    I am driving down from St. Louis; leaving Sunday. Another local owner will be flying in. Obviously I won't be on your caravan route - but maybe a meetup depending on arrival timing?

    Missouri Help

    I haven't gotten either done on my car, but I have heard good things from other local owners about both Clear Auto Bra as well as A&G. Be sure to check out our local owner's club - we'd love to meet you in and your new ride in person!

    Check your AC

    I had this repair done in February as well on my '13 S85. I was quite thankful for my extended warranty as it has now paid for itself in the first year that I have had it active. I am curious about firmware actually be the root cause of the failure; seems to me that that is a fault of Tesla's...

    Supercharger - Joplin, MO

    Here is another report on this. My father just drove through here Friday morning (4/21/17). He found 2 screws in one tire which weren't discovered until Springfield. He had it plugged in Springfield and continued on to St. Louis. I have advised him to skip this supercharger on his way back to ABQ.

    My Almost delivery in North Houston today - 2nd build

    Stories like these are why I told my dad who takes delivery tomorrow to go over his X with a fine tooth comb; particularly the paint job. I told him that I would be concerned about cars delivered during this quarter as so many were ordered before the change to the supercharging program. The...

    Latest 5 Seat Photos

    Thanks for those pics. I was at the STL service center looking at a 5 seater being prepped for delivery but wasn't allowed to take any pics. They weren't even able to fold the seats down for me as the adjustment lever hadn't yet been installed. I am happy to see how well the seats do fold down...

    Supercharger - Memphis, TN

    Rummaging around the Tesla events page tonight and found an event for the Memphis supercharger ribbon cutting set for 11/19. I didn't rsvp as I'm in Denver this weekend, but has anyone else heard anything about this? I figured with the fiber optic repair needing to be done, construction was on...

    Supercharger - Springfield, MO

    Thanks efusco! Husband and I are looking forward to going down to Maumelle (from STL) for Thanksgiving. It's a race between Springfield and Memphis to see which supercharger will be available for that trip. Is the Nov 18 event still on track? I would love to try to come down if the supercharger...

    Cost of Tesla Solar Roof Tiles

    Elon mentioned that there were micro louvres in each panel - thereby making them look opaque from ground level but less so for the sun's angle. I was wondering if those louvres played any part in compensating for different roof angles. However, I admit that my assumption that roof angle being...

    Cost of Tesla Solar Roof Tiles

    Thanks. Sun angle, yes. But doesn't the pitch of the roof matter as well? For instance flat top roof vs steep angles. I think pitches can vary up to 45 degrees.

    Cost of Tesla Solar Roof Tiles

    When we had panels installed on our house, the solar company looked at which portions of our roof would receive enough sunlight at the proper angles to make the cost worthwhile. They were even able to determine what our ROI would be when we decided to add on the east facing roof of our garage...

    St. Louis to Louiville--anyone done that route?

    I had not, but I figured that I could turn it into a dinner break which would make me a patron (right?).

    St. Louis to Louiville--anyone done that route?

    I've done that route from Effingham to Louisville last February. It is slow going but, for me, worth it to not have to swing up to Indy and then down to Louisville. Since it was winter, ie cold!, when I drove the route, I liked knowing that French Lick Resort was my fall back (they have a couple...

    Unusual supercharger activities?

    Out of curiosity - which cooler do you recommend? And did you really leave it plugged in to the car overnight? If so, what effect did that have on your range come morning?
