    Dash cam installer in Orange County, California?

    I'm thinking about trying it myself but I could see messing up my nice car. I believe I only want the new Blackvue 600 front dash cam. It's around $280 at Amazon with a 32G card. I don't really care about the rear camera option. I also don't want the Magic Pro power regulator nor do I want...

    California: Living on the other side of the law - (car pool stickers)

    I run with just one small sticker on the right-side rear of my Model S. I've never had a problem with once-a-week carpool lane sojourns. Can't say that I have seen law enforcement around me but I'm sure they've been there over the past two years I've owned the car. I have the two other...

    Rated range loss after 1 year

    P85 - 12,000 miles - 18 months old I was at a SuperCharger a couple weeks ago and my maximum full rated range charge is 252 miles. What has bothered me recently is that my around-town driving seems to be taking a brutal beating on charge. I did some stop and go errands with my wife the other...

    Who gave up buying P85D because of the smaller frunk?

    I'm so glad I have a P85 and bought it when I did. We use the frunk all the time. We first were apprehensive about closing it but after awhile that faded and we now use it all the time. I store all of our charging adapters, first aid kit, sports equipment and blanket in the microwave safely...

    Insurance in CA GULP any suggestions

    Looks like you've already received a great suggestion. If that doesn't work out you can try Wawanesa California out of San Diego. I've been with them for over 20 years. They are a premium carrier and if you've had at-fault accidents or tickets they may not take you but from your background...

    2013 P85+ trade-in value at local BMW

    I'm with you Barey. I remember Tex well and he's a good dude. Glad to see him back on the forums no matter what he drives.

    Tesla no longer selling NEMA 6-50 Adapter

    Ordered one ten days ago from the web page and received it on Wednesday of last week. I had no idea I was so close to the cutoff.

    Tesla moments

    Then there are the negatives like the guy that followed my wife around at an event last week trying to sell her solar panels for our house. He saw her get out of our Model S and pursued her like a hawk. She told him several times "NO" and he wouldn't let it rest. He asked her what our...

    Free data for four years!

    For clarification, you have a Premium subscription that you pay for, correct? I would like the ability to rewind a song or replay it, and playlists do sound alluring. I just want to verify that if you want those features you must pay for it and that the Tesla Slacker account is basic only...

    Tesla moments

    We had literally picked up our P85 and were on our first drive to have some cupcakes from a place called Sprinkles that is my wife's favorite. We're maybe 10 minutes into owning our car and in the Sprinkles lot a burly guy in a construction truck signals me to roll down the window. He's...

    Pictures of the new San Diego Tesla Service Center

    Is there anything to do within walking distance of the SC? I don't have dual chargers so I imagine I would top off at 30 miles per hour on the HPWC which would mean it would be nice if there were a restaurant or something around to occupy a couple of hours.

    Actor Paul Walker Dead - Fiery Porsche Crash

    Exactly. It would be the end of Tesla as a company. Another Model S fire, this time killing somebody, and somebody famous at that. Stock would be down 80% on Monday morning and the company would be gone. RIP Paul. He wasn't even driving and was coming back from a charity event. Great guy...
