    Leased X returned in May. Received invoice for $9800 in September!

    Are you guys measuring the tread depth on the inner aspect? Varies considerably vs the middle or outer.

    Caution Model X, Hidden Tire Wear

    This is a common problem in any sports car. The easiest solution is to flip the tires after about 10-15k miles. My local tire shop does not like flipping old tires so I tend to err on flipping tires with lots of tread still left. 5mm tread depth which is usually 10k miles ish I also run my car...

    Anyone here with a low garage ceiling and narrow parking space?

    My old house also had a narrow, short garage. My X never had a problem for more than 2 years when we moved. The kids did have to do gymnastics to get in / out of the car in the garage. The X similarly also never the garage lift box which protruded more than the ceiling. adults basically...

    AP1 MCU2 Upgrade?

    Any updates from those that had AP1 and upgraded to MCU2? Does it improve AP? Or is the screen simply faster? Now that the eMMC repair is under warranty, less inclined to upgrade...

    Viability of rotating MX tires/wheels after this easy hack/mod?

    Flipping the tires so that the inner tire wears more evenly with the outer tire will be infinitely more efficacious than this mod. Less dangerous too. I flip my tires every 10-15k miles

    Considering matte wrap. Any experience or recs?

    Helps a bunch. Thanks. Recs = recommendations I installed PPF on a hood once but had a lot of difficulty applying PPF well to side mirrors. What was the approximate difficulty applying vinyl? Roughly how many hours? Did you ceramic coat or other sealant after?

    Considering matte wrap. Any experience or recs?

    Considering matte wrap for my now 4 year old MX. Any recs? Is matte really that much harder to preserve and keep clean than satin? Any regrets not doing door jambs, etc? Considering an expensive pro installer vs friend of friend garage install at half price. Any experience with the friend of...

    Buying a used AP1 Model X... is this a bad idea?

    I've been very happy with my 2016 MX with AP1. Works great on the highway. Use it every chance I get on the highway. Having said that, we have had a variety of small issues given its a first year production model. Enough that we purchased the extended warranty.

    Help! Elon!

    I had some Tesla service repairs that also took much longer than expected. Months. It didn't bother me as much since they gave me a Tesla loaner. I would beg for a Tesla loaner. It will make the wait much more tolerable

    Why I recommend AGAINST buying a Tesla

    Happy Tesla owner for 6 years although I do recognize that some updates were buggy, charging speed has changed, and service is not as awesome as 2014. However I still think the experience is better. Audi e-tron Owner May Wish He'd Chosen A Tesla Due To Charging Issues Grass is not always greener.

    Who achieves their EPA rated Wh/mi?

    Who achieves their EPA rated Wh/mi?

    20" forged wheels weight reduction

    My 20" forged Volk TE37s with similar "inadequate" load rating have survived Chicago winter potholes since May 2017. These forged wheels have been proven over decades of use in racing. I have no doubt they are stronger than OEM.

    Mismatched tires on CPO 90D X

    It's not mismatched tire brands that causes a problem. It's mismatched tire characteristics. This can occur even within the same brand as most brands sell numerous tires at different price points. And during dry warm days going regular speed with regular acceleration and braking you will...

    Longest time in service?

    When does the vibration occur? At highway speed? Most commonly vibration is due to either the wheel or the tire. Consider taking the car to a specialty wheel tire shop. My MX has been in service for months this year but I try to view this as the glass half full. Allowed us to put tons of...

    URGENT advice needed on range issues with new Model X.

    In order to get rated range you need to drive about 333 wh/mi. Adjust your driving style to meet that number and see what happens over longer than 20 min drive. Also in colder weather pre warm the car.

    Road trip with high heat = no AC?

    Yes. Similar messages. Similar road trip conditions in the summer. AC condenser failed which imploded and contaminated all the AC tubing. Required extensive AC overhaul.

    Tesla Solar/ IL/ Rebates and quote new thread request

    Tesla also said they could not put solar panels on my flat roof. When every other solar company I received a quote had no problem with this. Maybe reasons like this contribute to why Tesla's solar business is doing so poorly as depicted in this article. Tesla’s trumpeted solar shingles are a...

    I knew about the waylens horizon but not that secure360. Thanks for the heads up. However, the reviews on Amazon we're just so so. Seems like a gamble that I'm a little reluctant to do if I'm going to go through the effort to have a custom install...

    WTB: Wall Connector with NEMA 14-50 Plug

    I have a hard-wired version for my own home. This new version limits to 72 amps. The original hard-wired connector which I used to have did go to 80 amps but that burned out after a few years of use. I would like to get this for my parents home for when I visit which is often.

    2019 Aftermarket dashcam for AP1 Model X

    After a recent unwitnessed small parking lot mishap, I now want to get a dash cam. Some old threads point to Topfit for AP1 MX but that has since sold out.

    Solar in Illinois

    Ahh. Thx for heads up. No real price drop then. Their quote in the website is in the middle of quotes I have gotten. Any experiences with solar in Illinois? How do they handle the SREC credit? How was the install quality? What panels? Any issues? Thanks

    Solar in Illinois

    Has anyone had Tesla install solar in Illinois? I've tried contacting the multiple times in the past without success. Given their recent price drop, I'm interested. Thx
