    Service in Houston besides the SC

    Great suggestion on TireRack for the parts. I had no idea they sold brakes. Now, for the trusty mechanic...I don't have one...and the few referrals that I have called will not work on Tesla.

    Service in Houston besides the SC

    The whole car vibrates when slowing down from 60 if I need to use the brakes. It is hard for me to tell whether it is the front or rear rotors, although I think it may be rear because I had the fronts turned by Brake Check about 1 year ago. Yes, the steering wheel shakes as well, which tells me...

    Service in Houston besides the SC

    I need to get some brake work (warped rotors) and an alignment done on my 2017 S. I know I can go to the service center, but they are outrageously expensive, so I wanted to ask if anyone has used an independent mechanic or shop that is familiar with Tesla's around Houston. Most places that I...

    S100D Air Conditioner Cuts out on Humid Days?

    i have a 2017 S75, and this has happened several times in the past month. Very uncomfortable here in Houston....I took it to the service center last year and they replaced a part which showed a fault, but the problem is still there. Is this still an issue? I am on the latest software revision.

    Slipstream vs Arachnid?

    i debated this exact situation 2 years ago. i thought and thought and thought about it, but did not like the look of the Slipstreams. I put the Arachnids on and never looked back. They are still very smooth and maybe a bit louder, but its all what you get used to. I don't even notice them any...

    21" Tires

    Update - Mounting is only $20 per tire. Cost of tire is $216 plus $20 mounting = $236 per tire Even if i buy from Discount Tire direct, they still charge me $20 to mount per tire. That being said, i went ahead and ordered the same Michelin's that I have now. They have done well enough for me...

    21" Tires

    So, its time for me to get some new rubber on my Model S. I have the Michelins that come with the Arachnids now, and have been very happy. I was planning on sticking with those, but came across the Continentals at the same price ($350ish). Any experience with these? Do these have the sound...

    New Bluetooth bug in v9

    Maybe, but mine happens while listening to radio, not streaming from my phone.

    New Bluetooth bug in v9

    This is what happens to me. I use a Bluetooth Headset while driving. It is much quieter than the BT in the car. If i am on the phone, then park, then open the trunk to get my bag out, the radio immediately turns on. Even after i close the trunk and lock the car, the radio is still on. All...

    New owner Trip Question

    Also, turn off your cabinet overheat protection and preconditioning. I have a 75 as well, and have had to make a couple of trips like that, and it definitely gets close. Remember that wind speed will also affect you. I suggest going 65 on the way there, and if you have enough battery, then you...

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    Try driving at exactly 7 mph, and see if the issue is consistently reproduced. Mine does. I took it to the SC last week, and they said this was a new one. They were going to do some research and get back to me. My struts have already been replaced multiple times.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    when the noise is happening, can you feel it in the steering wheel? I can on mine.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    just to make certain that I have the same issue, if you drive at 5-7 mph can you hear the noise from the front end and feel it on the steering wheel? I don't want to waste time taking it in if that is the same issue. Thanks.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    I have a Nov 17 Model S (Not D) with air suspension (if it matters), and i am able to consistently reproduce the noise if I drive between 5 and 7 mph. It is very consistent at that speed. Above that speed, it seems to go away. I can hear the noise, as well as feel a vibration in the steering...

    Having trouble deciding on rim colour

    Yes! Take the 2K back for the grey's and spend 1K more and get the Arachnids! Totally changes the look of the car!

    FOR SALE: Tesla 21" forged‑aluminum Arachnid wheels - Direct from Tesla

    after placing the order for my wheels, it took 3 weeks for the acknowledgement, and then 1 week after that to get them. Almost exactly a total of 4 weeks.

    Just wanted to update this and say that Steven was great to deal with. We completed the transaction on January 16, and i had the arachnids mounted yesterday at the Tesla Service Center. Thanks Steven!

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    i hear the same thing, but mine is not a dual motor. I do have air suspension though. I Just noticed it over the past few hundred miles or so. I have 2500 miles now. I notice it between about 6 and 10 mph.

    Strange. Anyone else having climate turning on, not by you?

    YES! I was thinking i'm going crazy. i went to the garage at 600am this morning and heard this loud fan sound. Turned out it was the car. I turned the climate off and it went off. Then, this evening, same thing, but this time the climate was off! This just started over the last couple of days...

    Sharp Right or Left

    I use my navigation a lot, and noticed the other day then when making a U-Turn, the voice is always backwards. Instead of it saying to make a sharp "left" in the case i am going left, it says sharp "right". It happens the other way as well, and at different u turns, so i know it is not just the...

    Low pitch rattle coming from front - no fix available?

    i think i have the same issue. I noticed it a few days ago. It doesn't seem to happen every time though. I'm trying to find a pattern. While slowing down, and getting close to 6-8 mph, it feels like the whole front end vibrates. Nothing violent, but just not smooth. i was thinking this doesn't...

    Brand new 21" Tesla Arachnid wheels with Michelin PSS tires & TPMS

    Did you purchase on eBay or through someone’s referral? If it was through a referral how long did it take for them to arrive after you redeemed the referral?

    Tires and Wheels again 19 or 21?!

    For anyone that has received the arachnids, two questions 1. Once you redeemed your referral code, how long did it take for the service Center to actually receive the wheels? 2. For those of you who have sold and shipped your wheels, approximately how much was the shipping? Thanks in advance.

    Tires and Wheels again 19 or 21?!

    Interesting because my Delivery Specialist swore up and down that Tesla would not align the car during the maintenance or fix any issues. I believe i also read that about some other TMC members having the same issue when they really did have an issue.

    Tires and Wheels again 19 or 21?!

    Thanks for everyone's suggestions. I think after agonizing over and analyzing everyone's posts, i am going to try the Arachnids out. Worst thing that could happen is that i don't like them, and i will sell them. Thanks!

    Tires and Wheels again 19 or 21?!

    Being in Houston, i would not need to change wheels for summer and winter. One set would cover me year round. As i stated before, my concern with the T Sportsline is that Tesla will not fix any issues that they deem are caused by the wheels. They even said they wouldnt align it, which is why i...

    Tesla Porn! Thats a good one, and i am in the exact same boat!!!

    Tires and Wheels again 19 or 21?!

    Just for comparison purposes, i am looking at a set of Arachnids including tires for about $3000. Most of my driving is in city, so the slightly less range of larger wheels shouldn't be too big of a deal, except for when making road trips. Mow much less is the range on 21 vs 19?

    New Model S 75 (MSM / Ultrawhite) Owner Here. Very excited. Have had the computer (car!) for 2 weeks now. Very cool experience. Have about 900 miles on it now! I've seen many posts regarding 19 and 21 inch wheels, but had some questions and wanted some updated answers. My car came with the...

    21's for 19's?

    I would also entertain selling them as a brand new set presuming i can get a set of 21"s at the same time.

    21's for 19's?

    I am picking up a new 75 later next week with 19" slipstream wheels (silver). I'm not a huge fan of the look. Anyone have any 21" Silver Arachnids that they want to create a trade for? I am in Houston. Thanks in advance.
