    Broken Windshield Wiper Arm

    I replaced mine a few months ago with this upgraded one which has a greater pressure so actually clears almost the entire screen, I'm certain they ship to the US also: Wiper Arm & Blade | EliseParts

    How many Roadster Owners are Electrical Engineers ?

    Robotics and Material engineer, though now I am mostly involved with rocket propulsion and spacecraft, with a bit of drone stuff on the side. Useful to have to state of the art cleanrooms in our spacecraft integration facility (not yet tested whether I can sneak the Roadster in for a PEM...

    Ditto here for a set, I'd arrange collection in the US rather than post international probably.

    Dare I even ask....

    Yes, it took six months in the UK, Tesla were not helpful. Autoglass tried for ages to find one from them, and in the end found me a VX220 screen instead, and I opted to have the colour tinting across the top (useful since I removed the pointlessly small sunvisors). So yes they exist, but not...

    Collective Roadster Album

    Here is EU 277, a 2011, R80 (3.0) Roadster Sport, just after a wrap in Deep Space Purple (flip colour), the location is the UK's rocket propulsion test establishment in Buckinghamshire, rather apt :cool:

    Roadster 3.0

    Just tried to input my data, but got an error "Unable to insert vehicle. The system administration has been notified. We aplogize for the inconvenience" ? My CAC continues as others have noted continues to drop, sitting now at 183 (dropped from 215 originally).

    Reverse Back Up Lights Not Working - Blown Fuse?

    XLR8's comment about being terrified about taking the car to the SC is something I and am sure others feel also. Using the PEM to control the reversing light seems a little crazy, however there could be an alternative work around - otherwise its going to be an insane cost to fix the reversing...

    Roadster Needs New Battery

    @petergrub , what would it take for you to design an after market battery pack, not necessarily of the capacity of the 3.0 pack, how far off do you think we are from having an third party sourced pack? I wonder how many folks out there would like to consider this in light of maintaining the...

    Roadster Forum Thread Reorganization

    Why not ? It would help catalog useful threads etc eg PEM based and make retrievalnof information easier especially for those folks who struggle to use the search function; I'm happy to help file those orphan threads if it helps

    Roadster Needs New Battery

    And whilst it does depend a little on the SC local to you, generally most folks are finding that it is taking on average a year plus to get a replacement. There are degradation issues with the replacement 3.0 programme which Tesla haven't resolved yet despite much talk, and the space part...

    Purchase 2011 Roadster -5YJRE1A37B1001297

    The other issue is the painting, the roadster has a high quantity of carbon fibre parts, if you paint these parts and stick them in a normal oven, you'll have horrible outgasing issues and possibly even damage the fibre. So I'd be budgeting for a respray for at least half the car, maybe the...

    Roadsters in Surrey?

    Three of us up in Oxfordshire, two in fact regularly on the same campus (Harwell), if you're ever up this way.

    Roadster Parts for Sale Listings

    Ouch! Thats pretty pricy, you buy direct from the manufacturer in Italy or via their country representatives for about $180 dollars, with a three year warrenty; yes you do need to switch connector over, but frankly it's sensible to check prior to fitment anyway.
