    Goodbye TMC

    These forums are getting battered with people who have nothing better to do other than respond to people just to be ignorant. I've even indulged in the ignorance myself and I regret it because that's not what the forum is for. If I've ever come off as an a-hole to anyone on here I genuinely did...

    Tempest wheels

    I don't have a problem with the design of the hub-caps I have a problem with the things that are underneath. So considering most people that actually go with this wheel will NOT be taking the hub-caps off I don't have to see anything in-person to know that the physical wheel that's beneath the...

    Tempest wheels

    That's the cheapest looking wheel I've ever seen. disgusting.

    Every service experience makes me want to sell my Model S

    Good Luck! Tesla's service needs improvement in MANY areas. Too bad we haven't received it yet. It seems like they could take lessons from basically every other brand out there on customer service. Those over the top things they used to do are long gone along with the "goodwill" services...

    2020 Build Quality

    The production of the S changes daily, so while we may not physically see the upgrades/tweaks to the car there are some...The cars are not by any means amazingly put together but some are much better than others. I don't want anything from Model 3 trickling up to the Model S (especially the...

    My app still has my car status as "ready for pickup" even though service completed a week ago

    It seems they are choosing the latter. The techs don't really care because it's not their car they want to get it in and get it out as quickly as possible. I think ALL the Service Centers gets people's interiors dirty because my car's interior is covered in dirty fingerprints after a Service...

    I like the new standard wheel design! Goodbye Slipstreams

    I think everyone who has the 21s has damaged them already haha!! Out of sheer stupidity, I paid $4,500 for some wheels that I've treated like dirt so pretty much a waste of $4,500 because if I were to sell them as is I wouldn't get anywhere near that. I'm holding off on changing the wheels out...

    I like the new standard wheel design! Goodbye Slipstreams

    Eh. They pretty decent to me but looks are subjective. The Sonata wheels, however, are disgusting. My turbines are ugly because they are curbed:D.

    I like the new standard wheel design! Goodbye Slipstreams

    Maybe I think I read somewhere about them being more efficient. I think the Tempest are actually pretty good looking. Sonic Slipstreams are a $1,500 upgrade now so I think many will be going with The Tempest wheels.

    I like the new standard wheel design! Goodbye Slipstreams

    I just can't seem to take my 21s off my car even though I should have by now. My wife just cruises along with her 19s with no worries of destroying them to potholes and doesn't have to worry about curbing them every 2 seconds.

    I like the new standard wheel design! Goodbye Slipstreams

    I HATED the slipstreams for the first few months they were out then I got a loaner with them and they grew on me. I was beyond pissed when they got rid of the original 19' inch wheels (which I still think look the best). I hardly ever see the cyclone wheels. They still have the sonic carbon...

    Would you buy a 2018 Model S that was a rental?

    69k?!? It had to be a trade-in that was already in bad shape so they just sent it straight to the loaner fleet. Some of tesla's loaners are in worse shape than Enterprise rental tesla's...I'm sure of it.

    Would you buy a 2018 Model S that was a rental?

    Most people attempt to avoid damaging rentals to avoid the damage fees that pile up. However, that doesn't stop them from driving it like they stole it. I personally take really good care of my rentals (I've even washed a couple) to avoid any fees and just because I know that eventually...

    I like the new standard wheel design! Goodbye Slipstreams

    So the S has new wheels now...I actually think they look rather nice. Thoughts? Including extended range, these seem like a much better option than the 21s. Dare I say they actually look better than the 21s. (If this has been posted before delete it)

    Model S: Is the white interior too hard to keep clean?

    My car has white seats (they haven't been cleaned in about 5 months) and since I'm very much so a blue jeans guy my seats look blue after about 3 or 4 weeks. So like @Fresh-popcorn said to keep some wipes handy. Also, don't spill in anything ORANGE in the seats and leave it to sit for longer...
