    Efficient tires?

    As a quick update on the PureContacts - so far so good. We don't drive aggressively at all, so can't say much about performance (as far as I can tell, it's at least as good as any tire we've ever had), so only thing I've been paying attention to is efficiency, and since we've had the tire, we're...

    Efficient tires?

    Thanks all! Seems that there are several great choices. And thanks to this thread and post: Conti PureContact™ LS I decided to stick with going with the PureContacts (it had not come up when I searched for "tires" but did when I searched "PureContact"). If folks are curious, I could post...

    Efficient tires?

    Looking to maximize range and the ecological properties of the tires as much as possible without compromising safety....

    Efficient tires?

    Am looking for all-season tires to complement our winter tires (so maybe 3-season tires for here in New England), and I've found a lot of great threads here on the most quiet tires, but relatively little info on which tires are more efficient (i.e. less rolling resistance -> greater range). Of...

    Hitch (Ecohitch) Installer west of Boston?

    Yes - we got that recommendation, and they sound great, but my wife really didn't want to have to go so far. Hard to believe that there's no one local who's willing and able to do a good job installing this...

    Model S ecohitch installer recommendation?

    Anyone have any suggestions for an installer near Boston? The Dedham service center won't do it, and neither will the two Tesla certified body shops. But there has to be someone near Boston that can install a hitch??

    Hitch (Ecohitch) Installer west of Boston?

    We called all of the places listed above, and none of them would do it. Anyone have any other suggestions? I can't imagine that there isn't anyone near Boston that can install a hitch in a Model S!!

    Hitch (Ecohitch) Installer west of Boston?

    Looking to get an Ecohitch (or equivalent), and don't have the time, tools or expertise to install myself. Any recommendations for an installer relatively local to Newton, MA?

    screen discoloration

    Just received my new inventory 100D, and first thing we noticed is that the top of the screen is significantly yellow, making me a YBS as well, though I didn't even know this was an issue with Tesla until now! We can reject the entire car, but, we did get a good deal, and I suppose that we...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    It's just a 100D (not performance nor ludicrous) and I don't have any access to the car yet... :-(

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Hi - just wanted to post about and get advice about our ongoing delivery ordeal. We returned our 2016 Model S last month when the lease ended, and ordered a new inventory Model S 100D on March 16th when the prices dipped down. Our sales advisor got in touch and let us know that it would be...

    EAP vs FSD upgrade

    I'm still pre-delivery, so my account page is just asking for my insurance and financing info... I've confirmed that the car already has EAP, and therefore has all the features listed above today. Only question is whether to pay the extra $3K for the future FSD features (e.g. computer...

    EAP vs FSD upgrade

    I was just told that it would cost $3K to upgrade from EAP to FSD before delivery, then $3500 for the next 60 days, and then $4K after that. And that EAP includes all capabilities the car has today, but that FSD will include upgrading to the new hardware and new capabilities in the future...

    $2000 FSD Poll

    I have a new inventory Model S (originally built in May 2019 with EAP) being delivered this week, and, though I've been asking for the last two weeks, Tesla sales reps have been unable to tell me what the cost will be (if any) to get the FSD features - either before I take possession of the car...
