    Validation Prototypes (VPs)

    The previous owner of EU VIN 0447 (non sport!) did an official 0-100km/h measurement once, and he did it in 3.2s. So I guess that statement is true. Note: according to the dutch car registry, the car was registered as having 50hp... rrrrright

    Supercharger for the Roadster (Elon said "No")

    "my" EU vin #0447 fits those requirements... although I think it's overpriced, it's in perfect shape at the back to perform stuff like this.

    "my" damaged Roadster 2.5 (EU VIN 0447) is for sale

    I'll do my best. I e-mailed the sellers 2 days ago because of some errors in their ad, but so far no reply.

    "my" damaged Roadster 2.5 (EU VIN 0447) is for sale

    Indeed... If you add the damage-estimation of 33K to the price, you would have to spend 72.000 (worst case... could probably be repaired much cheaper) on it to be back on the road again. And then you would have a Tesla Roadster that has been sitting in a storage for over a month now, without...

    "my" damaged Roadster 2.5 (EU VIN 0447) is for sale

    LOL @ BartJ m0rph: Yes, I drove about 50-60K last year. My last CAC reading wasn't that good, because it had been in service for over a week after a period of overheating problems. I saw it go down from CAC ~140 to 135.

    "my" damaged Roadster 2.5 (EU VIN 0447) is for sale

    In case anyone was wondering what happened to my crashed Roadster... damage exceeded €33.000,- so the leasecompany didn't want to repair it any more, making it an economical total loss. They sold it, and now you can buy it from a damaged cars dealer for €39.750,- Netto export price: €32.851,-...

    Ludicrous Roadster Parts Pricing

    Parts are insanely expensive... that's the reason I no longer have a Roadster. Minor damage on my front was €33.000.- worth of parts :(

    survey: debadge the roadster

    I got my car without any badges.. the previous owner took them off for some reason. I put an Autobots badge on the rear for fun.

    LOL yeah that's some scary stuff! I took it out, and it's now a sad souvenir on my desk

    LOL, that looked exactly like a scratch when I saw it in the bin @ repair center.

    Wrecked my front just too early for the 3.0 upgrade...

    Judging by the damage, the heart-shaped scratch and the split front bumper: yes that's it!

    OVMS and Android Wear integration

    Yes it did, but not much further than just seeing my charge. I won't continue developing now that I don't have a roadster any more.. :(

    Wrecked my front just too early for the 3.0 upgrade...

    I'm afraid not. I just said goodbye to the car. The repairer had the front taken off, and I could inspect the damage inside a bit better. The internal carbon is damaged, more than I expected it to be. I guess that's why the costs are as high... In the repair shop, they also had an other...

    Schade topic

    Ik weet het... precies wat ik zei toen ik het nieuws van die 33K hoorde. Net afscheid genomen van de auto in Eindhoven. Er stond nog een Roadster, chassisnummer 000813, is die van een bekende hier? Die had nog een tikkie meer schade, begreep ik van de hersteller. Onderdelen zijn schaars, er...

    Dit filmpje hoort bij die ravage, als ik het goed heb. Niet schrikken!! 80edays - accident on electric race around the world - YouTube Ik was inderdaad dat andere filmpje hier :) Mooi projectje voor een knutselaar... op Marktplaats staat al een tijd een Roadster 1.5 voorbumper en koplampen...

    Net gehoord van de leasemaatschappij dat ik een andere auto uit mag gaan zoeken... de kosten voor herstel van de (minieme!!) schade aan de Roadster zijn 33K:

    Wrecked my front just too early for the 3.0 upgrade...

    Indeed, I should have predicted the limits a bit better.. pretty ****** conclusion I had during braking: so thís is how bad the Roadster can be at braking.. Sad news: the lease-company has decided she's not going to have the car repaired.
  22. C

    Wrecked my front just too early for the 3.0 upgrade...

    yeah, it looks like 33K is pretty excessive... Haven't seen a cost breakdown yet. I'll keep you guys up to date on the progress

    Wrecked my front just too early for the 3.0 upgrade...

    Me too. For the rest of this board: please don't judge me by your country's laws or by seeing just 10 seconds of myself driving. Rear ending is always wrong in the Netherlands, but we have 2 seconds advised distance instead of the 6 seconds in the USA. I was planning to go to the right lane...

    yes it is :-) I got many requests to put it online, and I thought: why not ;-)

    Wrecked my front just too early for the 3.0 upgrade...

    I like your thinking... that sounds like a brilliant plan to be honest. off-the-record sources tell us that it's expected in August anyway, so who knows... it would save a lot of money, I guess

    Brake Pads

    maybe it's a dumb question... but where can I buy these Carbotech AX6 pads? I can't seem to find a dealer that ships to the Netherlands.

    Thanks all :) Mark, I agree, it's kinda stylish And now I'm going to look for a european alternative for carbotech brakes :)

    #1146 DMC Motor Fan Problem?

    m0rph, I had this problem too... does the fan make an aweful noise?

    Wrecked my front just too early for the 3.0 upgrade...

    After exactly a year and 1 day of driving my Roadster, I got unlucky today... Today, on the highway, a car stepped on his brake pedal for no known reason, and the van driving ahead of me had better brakes than the Roadster... I'll let the pictures do the talking. edit: everybody is all right...

    Roadster Rear Blower Maintenance

    Is removing the dam a pain? Hmm.. according to the German forum, it's a matter of unbolting some bolts on the underside. I'd think that would mean lifting the car, removing the rear underpanel, unscrew the dam, screw panel back on again. Cleaning PEM and motor cowling looks like it will cost me...

    Proven way to clean the INSIDE of your windshield

    Is it proven to clean the oily substance on the inside of Roadster windows? (most Elise-based cars seem to have this problem because of certain plastics that are used in the dashboard.)

    Average kW/M or kw/KM mileage?

    Yes, I know that I can pull the logs. I did that actually. But I want to know how other people's cars perform, so my boss has something to compare me with ;)

    Average kW/M or kw/KM mileage?

    No matter if it's for a Model S... it's useful information, thank you.

    Average kW/M or kw/KM mileage?

    Hi all, Since my car is a company car, I need to report my mileage every now and then, just as my ICE colleagues. There's only 1 problem: there's no data to compare my usage with. Here's a quick graph of my usage during the last few months: I'm seeing an average of about 200Wh/km at the...

    Any experiences with Lotus Elise/Vauxhall VX220 aero parts?

    I got a reply, he's not actively marketing the diffuser at the moment. Maybe we can get some enthousiasm going in this community, so he can do a production run?

    EU brake light vs US

    I got the screenshot from a service bulletin. Yes, the TPMS can be killed. They killed it on my car, before I got it, unfortunately. Even though it loses sync at a lot of drivers, I wish I had it!

    EU brake light vs US

    All right guys, I found a solution. Directions for service employee who didn't have a clue: 1.Connect to the vehicle’s OBD2 port or CAN 4 bus (Diagnostics bus) using the Gridconnect USB/CAN adapter. 2.Open the diagnostic tools icon 3.Open the Set Country tool and select the country that the car...
