    No one really is talking about it...but the bioweapon defense filter is awesome!

    I think this shows how well it really works as I really haven't noticed it at all! That is, driving behind large trucks spewing diesel fumes, farm smells on my way to Sherman TX, cigarette smells from the driver in front of me causally flicking their ashes at me out a cracked window, and...

    Anyone find the rear trunk lighting to be dim like the S?

    There are two lights, one on the lift gate and one on the right hand side in the trunk. Both appear to be stock and kinda dim. Will the abstract ocean lights fit in the spots? Anyone give it a go?

    #1400 takes a hit

    on Friday after work...running an errand when a driver going in the opposite direction failed to yield in the left turn lane and turned right into me. Damage looks pretty extensive and waiting on the adjuster to see what they think...hopefully fixable. Blah.

    Variance in hand wound motors of the Sport models?

    Was getting service at the Dallas store and one of the techs asked if someday we could do a drag race (half kidding). I was like sure! But the Model S has more HP so should start to pull on me. He then mentions that since the Roadster Sports motors where all hand wound, there is some...

    low estimated range at 50 miles but normal ideal range at 187

    I don't think I ever remember my estimated range being around 50? I always thought it was over 100. But noticed it today. I still get a normal charge to around 187 ideal. The weather has been cool but not cold. I have been running the heat but not that much recently. Could that be doing...

    New micro mirror and side mirrors

    I was looking for a micro mirror like sector111 sells. End up finding out that a company (Zoom) in Japan frequently makes the parts for Lotus Elise/Exige. They still have mirrors but a bit costly. Need to buy the adapter and mirror to complete the unit for your particular car. Like the...

    2.5 air conditioning and Texas heat

    Sorry for the simple question. Searching thru older posts I realize that the AC is pretty anemic. I also read that it was improved. I was wondering if the newer 2.5 fixed the problem or if it is still pretty anemic. I also commute about 120 mile round trip to one of our satellite...
