    Model S 21" Black Arachnid Wheel and Tire Package

    These are Awesome rims !!!! I bought a set recently. If you need new tires, the rims are practically free !!! I priced new tires for my Turbines and decided Arachnids with new tires were a better choice. Improved range, slightly more comfort and rim is stronger than the Cast turbine wheels.

    Next year isn't that far away, I think it might be worth waiting for.

    model s long range vs. long range plus

    I think if your buddy is CEO of Tesla Korea, he would probably know what the best option would be. Have you asked him what you should do ? I would hope he says, dont worry about it, ill switch it out for you later

    Any hack to remove the autopilot nag?

    I use a 1.5Lb ankle weight on the steering wheel and it doesn't nag me anymore. I still pay attention and am ready to take over but I can relax a bit more especially in super heavy traffic.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Im the furthest thing from a audiophile but I did not notice much of a difference in Audio from MCU1 to MCU2, I have the upgraded system but it really does sound horrible. I think its all relative however if you have other cars to compare it to. My Lexus Mark Levingston upgrade which I always...

    Why is the auto parking so bad? 8 Years later.

    Hopefully this isn't too far off topic. But Im not that great a driver when it comes into pulling into my garage. I knocked a mirror off of my Lexus and have not even attempted to use my garage anymore. Does anybody know if I can stand inside the garage and summon the car and it will come...

    100% charge or 90 or 95?

    Yep, no worry about the rocks chipping or cracking your windshield or all the dings in your hood, the extra mileage will be well worth it !!!!

    100% charge or 90 or 95?

    People who buy P100D often have rewarding jobs that cant be found everywhere. Its not like working at Mcdonalds and Walmart and moving to a closer location. The higher paying jobs are more limited in availability and often not as close to home as one would like.

    Dashcam/Sentry Mode USB Recommendations

    very simple playback...I just open the playback log and watch it on my screen....ive only had it for a few days. I have not taken it out of the car to view on my home computer but from the car it is very simple.

    100% charge or 90 or 95?

    Reading all the replies and having a bit of range anxiety myself I.) It appears that you are fine in the summer and probably spring and parts of fall 2.) It "may" be ok to charge to 95-98% on cold winter days, it probably still won't make the entire trip but every little bit helps 3.) Changing...

    Thats a GREAT idea

    Fixing a paint chip costs $1,700??!!!

    I have a Model S and it is pearl white metallic....it needs 2 different paints, the first is a base coat and the second contains the pearlescent stuff.......it doesn't hurt to find a piece of metal and scrape it and then practice your touch up skills. Im referring to a piece of painted scrap...

    Fixing a paint chip costs $1,700??!!!

    Have not checked on pricing recently but it seems for a couple thousand more, you can have the entire car wrapped.

    Fixing a paint chip costs $1,700??!!!

    I would go with touch up paint.....Direct Touchup has a great kit for pearl white paints.....the gouge looks deep but primer will build that up easily. Next will be a base coat (3-5 layers is ideal ) and then 1-2 coats of mid layer and finally a few coats of clear.....it will still be there but...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Have you tried scheduling yourself for the MCU2 upgrade through your App ??? I believe that they have stopped sending out email invitations. Your car is eligible for a Infotainment upgrade.

    I received a new MCU2 at SC in San Francisco last Thursday, they had no problems getting the part and service appointment took a couple weeks to schedule.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    My car was finished ahead of schedule ( took only 2 days instead of 6 ).....Darn, didn't get a chance to use my $700 in uber credits....it would be awesome if the uber credits stayed in your account, hehehe * Compared to other car dealers that offer u a lame shuttle ride to a train station, I...

    18 Model S 100D Totaled

    40K is not too bad, my 2017P100DL cost about 178K out the door and now 3 years later, it is worth about 70k, thats over 100K depreciation in 3 years. If Elon keeps reducing prices, the resale value of the S and X will continue to fall drastically. Sorry for your loss but hopefully you did...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I see they gave you $700 in Uber credit, does that mean they kept your car for 7 days ?

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I also had a issue with my window not closing all the way and they recommended that I bring the car to another dealership for that service issue. I think im going to start scheduling at Burlingame Tesla from now on. :cool: * Im a new owner, still learning the many intricacies of the Tesla system

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Just brought my car into SF Tesla for the infotainment upgrade, I made my appointment about 3 weeks prior. Ive read a few cases where the SC took the entire day to do the job but my SC wants 5 days. Seems like a awfully long time ???

    WTT : Black Arachnid for Gray Arachnids

    I purchased a set of OEM Black Arachnids and decided that the Sonic Gray would be a better look. If you are located in the Bay Area and interested in a trade, please let me know. Mine are zero miles with new tires. I will take slightly used gray ones in trade. Thank You

    NHTSA Investigates Failing MCUs

    I have a 2017 MS with 23K miles, the back up camera has not come on a few times but other than that it seems to be fine. I didn't give it much thought because it only happened 3X but then again I have only driven 400 miles since purchase. Im planning on doing the MCU2 HW3 upgrades anyways as...

    Tesla Model S P85D Performance Sport for sale!

    I am extremely surprised how fast I got my title, it took a little over 2 weeks from handing in the paperwork to receiving my title. I was expecting a long wait due to Covid backlog. Paperwork was done at AAA in San Francisco
