    2015 Tesla Model P85D -- Pearl White, FULL LOADED, Full Xpel, 3M Tints + more Fully loaded 2015 Pearl White P85D, just purchased in February.

    Supercharger - Darien CT Rest Area

    Total of 4 stalls, never more than one other Teslas charging there since I've owned the car. I work in the car during the 20 minute charge and I'd leave if 2+ showed up anyway.

    SuperCharge every day?

    Probably was me as I'm about 5 minutes away from both Darien Supercharger locations - 4 stalls at each. Every few days I stop to charge and I see other Teslas every so often, but never more than one other charging at a time. I always stay in the car to work while I wait. Haven't charged at home yet.

    Model S owners prefer? (iOS / Android / Windows Phone)

    The Model S is even more amazing with the companion application from Tesla. Now what is your OS of choice to run the app? I'm a big fan of tech and trying the latest and greatest when at all possible. iOS has been my preference since the original iPhone, although I love trying out other brand...

    Solution for the quarter window draft of cold air!

    Funny, I have the same issue with this P85 loaner that I've had for almost a month now. Took it in for service and they said it fell within the acceptable range using some measuring device so there was nothing they can do. Ever since I left the service center it never happened again. Wondering...

    Supercharger - Darien CT Rest Area

    Ever since joining the Tesla family I've noticed some spots getting ICE'd in Darien North & South even while I sit there charging. These two new supercharger locations in Darien are a big reason behind my purchase of the Model S - never needing to charge at home with 8 charging spots, 5 minutes...

    Next-gen REAR seats no longer available for new orders, please post feedback on yours

    After reading some of the posts about the stitching being different I just let my DS know to put me down for full next gen. Don't want a mismatched car when it comes time to resell.

    Next-gen REAR seats no longer available for new orders, please post feedback on yours

    I received a phone call about my P85D re-order concerning the rear seats a few hours ago. They gave me the option of keeping the next gen rear seats or switching to the older style and keeping the next gen seats for the front only. I wanted a day to think about it before I let them know. Also my...

    Did anyone order their P85D with the premium interior package?

    At least they knocked $1K off the package with the latest MS update. I'll pick it up now because I really wanted the lighting. Now it's just a matter of grey or black interior...

    21" Wheel/Rim Damage (crack and leak) - Options?

    Sorry to hear about the damage. One thing I would recommend is going with a 19" / 20" set to give you that extra rubber in case of any crazy road conditions. My personal preference is 19" for my winter setup and 20" for my summer set. The tires are cheaper this way, plus you have more variety...

    reddish etched spots in paint?

    Did you park under a tree at all? Looks like some sort of berry fell on it and made the splash marks before rolling off. An easy way to fix it is to soak a towel in a bucket with car wash mixed in, warm water is best. Take it out and lay it on the car in the area you are going to clean, leave...

    Added brake strobe to rear brake strip

    Wow great upgrade. I do find myself nervous slowing down especially if there is an accident or something that causes stopping abruptly ahead. I avoided two accidents from behind by swerving off into the breakdown lane when the person behind me didn't look to be slowing down fast enough. In...
