    DIY - Carbon Fiber Door Handles

    Doesn't look like it. Check out their install gallery.

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Sounds like your brake pedal contact switch is in need of adjustment. Brake lights illuminate with the slightest touch in every car I've owned, including this one.

    TPMS display in V7.0 with older sensors?

    Maybe it would work once the correct hardware was present. Maybe a reboot would be needed. Or maybe the SC would need to update the software. At that point I'd hope they wouldn't charge much.

    I'd love to be able to figure out how to do this upgrade myself.

    Firmware 7.0 - For Classic Model S

    Call me crazy, but I have to chuckle at all the debate about the brake lights indicator. I think people should look through the windshield, not stare at the IC hoping to reverse engineer the algorithm Tesla uses to illuminate the brake lights!

    This is great. Can you do the same for the mirrors? :)

    True or False: Tires on a Model S wear out faster due to the increased vehicle weight

    When the DU is replaced, are certain suspension components replaced as well?

    Can anybody provide model S motor efficiency diagram???

    It would be interesting to see this for the Tesla motor. If we knew where the highest efficiency regimes were, we could try to stay in the higher efficiency regions when accelerating. We could figure out motor RPM vs MPH with a little math, since it's a fixed 9.75:1 ratio gearbox. (Well the rear...

    RWD performance Improvement from v7.0 - how much?

    Not sure one can draw that conclusion. Every car design is different, and some cars "hook up" better than others due to suspension geometry, spring rates, damper rates, bushing compliance, just to name a few. I've found the Tesla does an amazing job of launching with such narrow tires and so...
