    Hurricane Irma

    Larry - hope you, Mary Ellen, and all in FL are staying safe. When we moved to CA, thought trading hurricanes for earthquakes was not a very good deal. At least with hurricanes you get some warning. But not so sure anymore. Please keep us posted on how you fare once Irma passes. Jeff

    Selling My Son's Inheritance - 2013 Pearl White

    Took the trade. Should be on the CPO list soon. Someone will get a really clean, low mileage, relatively low VIN Model S with a full warranty. The should enjoy it as much as I did.

    Selling My Son's Inheritance - 2013 Pearl White

    The car that I told my then 21 year old son he could drive when he inherits it is no longer going to be his. My wife, whose become the primary driver since we moved to CA and are down to one car has decided she has to have an X because it's too hard to get our 17 month old grandchild into a...

    Who Is Offering The Best Insurance Rates?

    Does anyone have any experience with insurance by Metromile? My quote for my 2013 S was around $60/month, + 9.4 cents/mile. A savings of at least $700 over my current State Farm. Driving less than 5K miles/year since moving to CA. Wife insists she has to have an X now that she's the primary...

    How to use referral credit?

    Don't know if this may have been addressed in another thread, if so, sorry. The $1000 owner credits from the prior referral program expire December 31. I had not signed onto My Tesla for several months, and never received e-mail notification from Tesla about this. My son-in-law alerted me...

    Ca Wash in Brentwood/Santa Monica?

    Moved to LA from FL about a month ago. Without the daily thunderstorms, my Model S is looking pretty grungy. I've been using the Xpel rinseless product as I have a full wrap. Two buckets and less than 5 gallons of water total, but I suspect condo rules will prevent me from even doing that in...

    Tesla Road Trip for Men's Health

    Orlando-area doctors visit Suns game on first stop of cross-country journey for mens health | jacksonville.com www.driveformenshealth.com I don't think this made it to the Forum yet. No local publicity in advance, so I missed seeing them.

    Ocala to Biloxi the gps needs help

    My wife - who goes to Seaside a couple times a year on business - says no way in our 85S. But she gets anxious when I drop below 50 miles rates range. Perhaps stop for a meal in Tallahassee & pick up a 30 mile buffer at the Sheraton or from someone on the FL Charging Network (if you've joined).

    Window tinting

    Jax is a little far to go for a look-see, but I've been very happy with the heat reduction and appearance with Photosync. Only caveat, when headed directly into bright sun and wearing polarized sunglasses, there is a slight pink/purple color shift of green foliage. Some photos of my Pearl...

    My car needs to go home to CA - How?

    Thanks for the suggestions & alternatives - which I am exploring. Several friends & two sisters have volunteered to make the trek. Perhaps... Sort of defeats the purpose if its the journey/marking a life transition rather than the destination that is most significant.

    NE FL Get Together - Any Interest?

    It has been some time since the NE FL owners have gotten together, and there are now many more of us. I will be moving to CA later this summer, and since am 'retired' for the next couple of months, have the time to try to arrange a NE FL gathering before we leave, if there is sufficient...
