    Font size?

    I guess Tesla’s developers are young enough that they don’t need glasses yet. +1 for font size and contrast increase.

    The one thing keeping me from ordering

    Have you considered an older Tesla? My 2015 Model S had an awesome sunroof. I’m equally happy with my Model 3 glass roof.

    Safety Score - Probably Will Fail!

    Just for early beta. They can‘t afford any bad press.

    Tesla Wall Connector - installation approach

    NEMA 14-50 as a backup in case the Wall connector ever fails on me.

    New construction solar roof

    Best of luck too you. I hope it all works out. A 1-2 month window seems pretty tight when working with Tesla. I’m in the planning stages for a custom home in Clermont FL. Would love to have a solar roof. Thanks to you and ScottFLA for pioneering this.

    Merritt Island (FL) Service Center

    Gonna need a lot more than 5 charging stalls during big SpaceX launch events.

    TAMPA AREA - M3 Tint

    I’ve had two M3s done by Eric over at Tint Studio in Riverview if you’re on this side of town. He does the rear glass with a single piece of tint. Excellent work and he does windshields too.

    Selling to Vroom, anyone can speak about the experience?

    +1 on Carvana. So easy.

    Taking delivery tomorrow- need help

    Enjoy your new car. You’re gonna love it. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

    Many of the symptoms of a 12v battery dying.

    Dash Cam footage of my M3 hitting a truck tire!

    Looks like just a retread ply not a whole tire. You can buy those clips on amazon. Get a few extra to fill and holes you have in your rear wheel wells.

    Trade In

    Carvana gave me $5,000 more than the Tesla offer on my 2015 MS last year. They are super easy to deal with. 10 minute inspection. They had my check already cut when I arrived. No surprises. Tesla doesn’t want to be in the used car business, so they will almost always be the lowest bid.
