    Cracked Front section Panoramic glass- Need replacement

    I'd be interested in hearing about how much the replacement cost and how it went? I just caught a rock on the leading edge of my sunroof and it cracked it pretty badly.

    How to save a lot of time on long trips

    I recently took a trip from the San Francisco East Bay area to Eureka and Crescent City, CA in my 2013 MS85. I usually am the only person in the car, but this trip there were 4 adults and some luggage in the car, so, significantly more weight than usual. I planned out the route using ABRP (a...

    TPMS question

    I recently had my car, 2013 MS85 with old TPMS system, in for a TPMS problem in which they replaced a couple sensors and thought the problem was fixed. On the way home, the same error message came on again. Over the next three days it came on again and again, usually about 30 minutes after...

    Does anyone regret their purchase?

    No regrets here. I bought a used 2013 M85 from Tesla Used division. It was in pristine condition, 30K miles, and was the flagship of its day. MS has come a long way since my MS was made, but I love my car, and have no regrets. I have learned a lot about Tesla, about EV's, and am formulating my...

    TPMS Upgrade

    I just got my car back from having the Conti- retrofit to the new V2 TPMS. I am really happy with the upgrade. It's awesome to be able to monitor the pressures individually. I am also extremely happy with the service I've received from the Fremont, CA Tesla Service Center. They have been really...

    TPMS Upgrade

    There's a pretty good chance that labor costs are higher here than in many other places. I couldn't begin to offer any insight on whether they'd inflate prices to keep traffic down... that doesn't seem like a Tesla profit move... ?

    TPMS Upgrade

    My 2013 MS85 is going in for a conversion to Conti-TPMS. My original system, Baolong?? I would guess... started crapping out on me last year in November. I kept getting a message: "Tire Pressure Monitoring System Fault - Sensors unable to measure tire pressure." I took it in to have it checked...

    Am I getting the High-efficiency Drive unit?

    I took my car in for a TPMS problem, they asked if there was anything else I needed them to take a look at, I mentioned there was a whirring/whistling noise from the DU, especially at certain speeds. Later that day they called me to let me know they'd be replacing the DU under warranty. Now the...

    Whoa Holy Phantom Braking

    That's a mess that Tesla won't let you upgrade to a 100kW battery. I wonder if there's any good reason for that, like there's incompatible cooling mechanisms, or something else, or if it's just that they want to force you into buying a new car?

    Sold my Model S after 5.5 years...moving on

    I bought a used S85 last year and didn’t know about the chargegate stuff... I mostly charge my car at home so the slowdown in supercharge rates ticks me off on road trips, but otherwise I love this car and never want to go back to an ICE vehicle. That being said, I’m looking at going to a MY...

    New MS Lease Insurance Sticker Shock

    Have you tried TESLA's auto insurance?? My rates went down pretty significantly when I switched from GEICO to TESLA insurance.

    2013 Model S, can't drive, multiple warnings shown on forward display

    \ I just had my early 2013 MS85 (48k miles) in for service. The stupid TPMS had been lit up solid for like 4 months. Nothing else ever malfunctioned though. They did replace a couple TMPS sensors (under warranty). I happened to mention the weird whining noise from the motor. Two hours later they...

    Whoa Holy Phantom Braking

    It's funny to hear all of you with AP and/or FSD talk about the pitfalls of the emerging technology, as I drive my 2013 MS85 with no AP and not even adaptive cruise contro - just regular "set a speed" cruise control! I bought my MS last year, used, with only 30K miles on it, flawless condition...
