    Efficient tires?

    Am looking for all-season tires to complement our winter tires (so maybe 3-season tires for here in New England), and I've found a lot of great threads here on the most quiet tires, but relatively little info on which tires are more efficient (i.e. less rolling resistance -> greater range). Of...

    Looking to get an Ecohitch (or equivalent), and don't have the time, tools or expertise to install myself. Any recommendations for an installer relatively local to Newton, MA?

    What's going on with new inventory pricing?

    Have been in the market for a new Model S, and last night I saw that the prices for new inventory Model S's had dropped by ~$8,000 (to ~$79K for a new 2018 100D with Enhanced Autopilot, etc., and the standard new inventory mileage of 50 miles). Couldn't sleep this morning, and then noticed...

    Service plan if on 3-year lease?

    We got our 70D 57 days ago (so 3 days left to decide whether to get a service plan!) and am planning to replace it at the end of our 3-year lease. By my simple math, since we won't need the year-3 service appt, the service plan isn't worth it, since we would only spend $400 + $700 for the 2...

    HPWC on 40A circuit: amperage to charge at?

    I apologize if this exact question has been covered already. The electrician installed our HPWC today, off a circuit breaker that is labeled 40A. He was certain that he set the dip switches for a 40A circuit (which I had thought should charge at 32A), but the car was charging at the full 40A...

    Insurance for Model S in Massachusetts

    It's been about two years since there's been a thread on this, and would much appreciate any advice (and rates if you don't mind sharing) for auto insurance in Massachusetts for a Model S. My current carrier is Pure Insurance, $750/year for our Prius, and it would be an additional $1,830/year...

    TCO & Lease vs Loan Cost Spreadsheet

    As promised, here is the link to the spreadsheet I made to calculate the total cost of ownership of a Tesla Model S and to compare leasing vs. loaning. First, some caveats. I cannot guarantee that any of the numbers or calculations on this spreadsheet are or will remain correct, and please do...

    Dual charger useful when away from home?

    I haven't been able to find any recent dual charger threads, and just ordered a 70D, and would appreciate any advice on whether to get one. I understand that a dual charger is not needed for Superchargers (of which there a fair number of coming out of the Boston area), nor for CHAdeMO, which I...

    Ordering this week - what options would work best?

    To introduce myself, as this is my first post, I'm the dad of a family of four, a clean energy investor in MA, and have been craving a Tesla for years! But I never could financially justify getting one until now, when we need to replace our old Lexus RX400H ASAP. I put my deposit down on the...
