    Vinyl Wrap or Paint?

    Wow, Lee, that is even worse than I thought. I was guessing closer to 10, but can believe 20. I doubt if it is cheaper in Camas (though I actually spend part of the year in Baltimore). Nice looking cars, Gruiz, though a bit flashier than I would want.

    Vinyl Wrap or Paint?

    I am waiting for delivery of a white S LR. I was not crazy about the Tesla colors other than red. Also, my preferred color (don't ask my why, hardly anyone else seems to like it) is a darker shade of green. I had hardly even heard of vinyl wraps before I began this process, but I gather it is...

    Well, that was fast

    Wow, I put in an order on July 1 for the LR, have a delivery window of Dec-Feb, and have not heard back yet. I ordered a white one. I wonder if color plays a role. I suspect white is the most popular because of the cost. I plan to do a vinyl wrap.

    For Dec-Feb Delivery Window...

    when can I expect to hear from Tesla? I currently plan to use Tesla for a car loan. I assume their algorithm will get in touch in plenty of time, but thought I should check. Any clue as to interest rates? Dankeschön.

    Well, just put in my order for a S LR

    Sorry to be slow in responding. Actually, my delivery date has been something of a moving target. Currently, Tesla says Dec 22-Feb 23. I think, so far, I have seen 3 different delivery dates. I will believe it when I see the car....

    Mustang E

    That is a good point, Masked. Rarely do we drive more than 500 miles, and there definitely would be a few stops, so maybe it is not that big of a deal, at least for a Tesla with good range. A drive we do a fair amount is to the beach and back, about 100 miles each way plus maybe 20 miles while...

    Seats in 2022s?

    I believe that I test drove one before the redesign. There was a whole thread complaining about the seats at one point. Sounds like they are better now. But, right, a test drive is a must.

    Seats in 2022s?

    Pre-Covid, I test drove the 3, but did not like the seats. Others have also complained about them. I gather that since then they have been changed some. Feedback on the 2022 seats?

    Mustang E

    My realtor owns the Mustang Mach E in the higher performance version. He likes it quite a bit, but it is only really suitable for in-town driving. He said realistic range is around 200 miles. As a realtor who drives a lot, it is fine for him. He says what he saves in gas makes the car...

    Well, just put in my order for a S LR

    Thanks for the heads up. Delivery has been advanced from when I ordered it. I wonder if the new dates apply to an order made with less favorable rates. I actually would prefer to get it in 2023 for logistical reasons. Let's see what happens.

    Model S Plaid First Impressions: Ordering through Delivery

    Thanks for the feedback. Think I will stick with the LR for now.

    Model S Plaid First Impressions: Ordering through Delivery

    Frustrating about the service, but at least it is only cosmetic and you had a heads up given all of the other complaints. And you picked a terrible color. Blue cars should be illegal. 😁 Actually, I don't like any of the Tesla colors. I was thinking about red, but one always hears that red...

    Washington State: Model S Plaid/LR waiting room

    Agreed, though to be fair, so do most car dealerships. I have a 2009 Porsche Cayenne Turbo and at one point was offered around half of what I could sell it for. A few days ago I put in an order for a 2022 S LR. Tesla is saying March to June 2023. I plan to sell the Porsche around the...

    Moving from Mercedes E450 to Model S

    I just ordered an S and the delivery dates are now March-June 2023, FWIW.
