    Section 179 tax benefit question

    Shoot, not the answer I was hoping for...but it does make sense. Thanks for your response!

    Section 179 tax benefit question

    I'm SURE this question has been asked on this forum...probably a thousand times, but I have searched and can't find my answer. I am a small business owner and am interested in purchasing a Model X while using the 179 tax benefit. I understand that the vehicle needs to be used for business...

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    I found out that Tesla Roadside gave the tow company the wrong address. Case solved.

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    Very interesting story, David...and yes, concerning for when there truly is an emergency, like a the snowstorm scenerio. I'm happy everything in the end worked out for you, as it did for me. Took a bit of frustration and "mental muscle work" to get it done, though. I did find out yesterday...

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    I understand that completely. I've lost a child (nothing compares to that), and most recently both of my parents. It does put things into perspective, but we can still feel frustration over other issues...not even close to the same degree, but it's still there.

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    I was not in the least serious about contacting Elon. It was a tongue-in-cheek comment, for which I am now getting slammed by fellow members.

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    I found out that Tesla gave the tow company the wrong address. They sat in front of someone else's house for ten minutes, then left.

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    Bruce, thank you for asking people to be polite on my behalf. I'm honestly shocked at some of the comments directed towards me. I would LOVE to delete my original post, because these types of comments just keep coming in, but I can't seem to see how to delete it. I honestly would just like the...

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    Thank you! I was a little surprised and taken back by that comment..."Other people's problems are WAY bigger than yours." Not the kindest thing to say to someone, especially when they don't walk in the other person's shoes. Thanks for having my back. :)

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    Got it. I wasn't actually serious about contacting him. I didn't realize anyone would think I WAS serious. ;) (But to be honest, I believe he does like to know how his services are doing. Those things are indeed important to him.) The problem was corrected, but not by Tesla Roadside Assistance...

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    Oh dear, I wasn't actually serious about contacting Elon! That was a tongue-in-cheek comment just to show my frustration. There's no way I'd try to contact him regarding something like this. ;) And I'm sorry about your towing experience - so frustrating!

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    Ah, yes. I guess maybe it's time I set up my own Twitter account. My son follows Elon on Twitter and shows me his occasional responses to people. I'll take that one in a million chance!

    How do I get ahold of Elon? I just had ridiculous roadside experience!

    I honestly want to pull my hair out. I would love to let Elon know about my experience this morning with Tesla Roadside Assistance. The power steering in my X failed today, so my car is stuck in my garage. I called Tesla Roadside Assistance...they sent a tow truck out (costs covered) and I was...

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    Come visit Utah! Best skiing snow in the world, in my humble opinion! :)

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    Safety definitely comes before comfort! I'll leave the tire pressure as it and I'll take the car into Tesla service and see if they can do anything about the roughness of the ride. (Also I notice you live in Milton Keynes...my family and I used to live in Huntingdon, not far from you. We're...

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    The earthquake example makes perfect sense. What would you recommend I keep my tire pressure at to soften the ride a bit? (I literally know very little about all this stuff - I'm a stay-at-home mom...ask me about the best way to clean your wood floors or the best laundry soap to use or the best...

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    Thanks for the info. I guess you can't believe everything you read on the internet , haha (ie: no dampers on an X). I'll be taking it into Tesla service soon to get this checked out. I sure hope they can help me!

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    I just did a little research and found that the model x does not have dampers. :(

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    Is that something that can be fixed/replaced? (The dampers)

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    It's funny because when I purchased the car, I had several people tell me "the lower the suspension setting, the smoother the ride." lol So I set it to low. I'll try it higher today and see if that makes a difference.

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    It has brand new Pirelli tires on it. I'd hate to invest AGAIN in more new tires, but if it softened the ride considerably, it would be worth it. I literally can't stand to drive my new X. I feel like it's going to rattle my brain out of my head!

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    The wheels are 20" with brand new Pirelli tires. I test drove a new model X last week and was DYING over how smooth it was. It was a completely different ride than mine. I'd definitely call my ride "harsh." I've even had passengers mention it to me that my ride is incredibly rough.

    Model X Suspension (very stiff) vs Model S Suspension (smooth)

    I just stumbled across this forum question while searching online for a reason that my Model X rides so rough! About a month ago, I bought a used 2016 Model X 75D. The ride is SO INCREDIBLY ROUGH that I can hardly stand it. I feel like my brains are going to rattle out every time I drive it. I'm...
