    Show off your aftermarket wheels.

    Big fan of the Gulf liveries (and just bought the new McLaren hat) but that design specifically was from the March 881, Adrian Newey's first car.

    Show off your aftermarket wheels.

    Tried something new and I can now do Rotiform four ways: LAS-R 19" silver Aerodisc with Laura Owens design Aerodisc with Wade Guyton design Aerodisc with an ode to my favorite livery Pretty cool how these came out - lots of opportunity for really unique looks.

    independant service

    I've had good work done down in Costa Mesa at EVFixMe, but I'm in the same boat of wishing there were an independent specialist in LA. Was very disappointed when I found out the shop down the street from me called Electric Ave really just specializes in hybrids.

    Model LS V8

    Honestly, I think this would be like a lot of project cars in that it might not be easy to find a buyer, but if you can get some pretty insane performance numbers out of it, there's always a market for that. Shooting from the hip, but I think the more commercial hybridization process would be...

    Model LS V8

    Love the idea, kind of a reverse take on the normal hybrid performance car (ICE to the rear, electric in the front). Packaging does seem like it would be a tough challenge - Rich's LS3 is a tight squeeze longitudinally, so a transverse LS4 will need some serious work. Assuming the battery...

    200 lbs. load limit on Model S?

    Gross vehicle weight includes the weight of passengers / cargo / etc., while curb weight (2,250kg) is the measurement of the car itself.

    Trying to claim ownership on Tesla website, but keeps saying “unable to process, try again later”

    Model S Slid Away...

    FYI, something similar came up in an NHTSA investigation into sudden unintended acceleration, a Model S sliding down a snowy driveway. Can't imagine this is too widespread, but there are documented cases. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/inv/2020/INCLA-DP20001-6158.PDF

    Unable to Remove Car/Transfer Ownership from Account to Private Sale Buyer

    The Claim Ownership page has been broken for a while, but if the new owner emails all the documents requested there to [email protected] they should be able to get it processed in a couple days.

    Tesla now repairing MCU1 with a new Tegra card for less than $500

    I've only ever had one MCU restart while driving, but this alert just popped up. I'm guessing the service will be the chip replacement?

    3 Unintended Acceleration events when parking my Tesla S P in my garage.

    I feel bad for this guy whose winter hellscape driveway kept launching the car into the street.

    Just while turning, no issue with bumps. Pretty easy for me to live with, but I've had a few cars that rubbed previously.

    I have the Pirelli P Zero Nero AS in 245/50 19 and they rub a decent amount in the front.

    Meet rEVolutionaries #3 - Alexander Sims, Sunday, Aug. 30, 2020 1pm PDT [Tesla

    Extremely cool - I was honestly a little forlorn when he lost the BMW ride before the Mahindra announcement. Will make sure to tune in!

    Models S - Window Tint Film/Prices Paid?

    For price comparisons, my favorite local shop in LA was $1k for FormulaOne Stratos, 35% full vehicle (including sunroof), 70% windshield.
