    Does Default TuneIn Account Expire?

    I have a June '17 Model S. It's supposed to have lifetime premium connectivity. Normally the car is automatically logged into Tesla's default TuneIn account. However, recently it's no longer logged in. I can no longer access channels such as CNN. Does the default account expire? I understand...

    MASTER THREAD: Tesla Insurance Services in California

    I just spoke to Tesla insurance. They said if I don't add my wife to the policy, they may not honor a claim if she drives the car and gets into an accident. However, they can't tell me how the rate would be impacted when a second person is added to the policy. In other words, there's no way to...

    MASTER THREAD: Tesla Insurance Services in California

    Does anyone know what happens if you have two Teslas in the family, and you need coverage for both you and your spouse? I only have 1 Tesla account, and the insurance page only provides quotes based on the person on the account. I read about the part that you can call them afterwards to add the...

    emergency escape

    I run a Toyota themed business, and I keep this tool in each of my Teslas: https://www.cityracerllc.com/products/oem-toyota-rescueman-tool One end acts as a hammer to help you break the glass. The other hand let's you cut the seat belt if necessary. It's extremely compact at less than 8 inches...

    EV Wheels Direct

    Has anyone bought either Model S or Model X wheels from them? Comparing their wheel specs against T Sportline, their wheels are non-staggered and closer to stock width.

    Pros and Cons of Owning a Tesla

    I think you need to tell them the honest truth that burning coal is not a pro, just as smoking cigarettes is not a pro.

    Taycan impact on Model S - a theory I hope is not true

    My experience is that "rich jerks" types are more apparent in the Porsche forums. Owners are typically not the hands-on types. Many come to the forums to pose problems, and many of the problems are quite common. Yet, it's often the case that no solution is ever posted, because people just sent...

    Owners delivery stories, photos and first impressions

    Congrats. Your car can probably be turned into Ludicrous with a software update, so they preemptively put the underline there.

    Taycan impact on Model S - a theory I hope is not true

    I'm one who's not taken by the Taycan, for a ton of reasons. 1) I've been a Porsche owner for the past 13 years, and have gone from infatuation to detesting the brand. Their product has so many problems compared to just about any other car I've owned. In terms of service, their business model...

    Study: Tesla Model S Holds Value Over 2x Better Than Average Gas Car

    That's fantasy. Plenty of 2017 Model S on the market for $50K.

    Anyone buy or know of someone who got an iPace?

    I saw one for the first time yesterday. Looks like an earlier generation Chevy Volt in person. It’s got to be a tough sell at $90k.

    Petition for the introduction of SentryMode in all AP2.0 cars

    What do people mean by Sentry Model "does not work"? I believe it does provide the alarm function on AP2.0 cars, and I expect an alert to be sent to the phone in the event of a break-in. It's true that the video function is not supported; however, if you have an IRO dashcam installed in the car...

    Do you have shudder on hard acceleration? AKA death rattle?

    My S75 RWD does not have any shudder when floored, but my X75D has the shudder. As a result, the dual motor car can't really achieve its full potential despite having faster 0-60mph time than the RWD car.

    What's the point of the "Dual Motor" badge ina Model S?

    Now the 75D guys can legitimately wear a Dual Motor badge.

    19" Silver Turbine Wheels - Does it Exist?

    I love the look of the turbine wheels, but I want to keep my stock 19" size. I see a few aftermarket vendors offer this style of wheel, but it always comes in grey or black. Has anyone been able to find these in silver? This is for a 2017 Model S.
