    2021 Model S Refresh Wireless Charging - and Google Pixel 6/6 Pro

    Seems like the 5 would be perfect size for you. I'm the opposite. I like the bigger phones although I think even the 6 pro is too big. It's just longer rather than longer and wider.

    2021 Model S Refresh Wireless Charging - and Google Pixel 6/6 Pro

    I have a Model S Plaid and was thinking of picking up the Google Pixel 6 or the Google Pixel 6 Pro. My primary reason is to use the wireless charging capability in the Model S. Can anyone who has purchased this phone confirm that the Google Pixel 6 or 6 Pro wirelessly charges in the Model S...

    Blue Plaid - Paint the calipers or not?

    I have a MSM Plaid and was considering the acid green used on the Porsche 918 Spyder's calipers. Also thought about light blue. Orange would tie in with the orange plaid animation after launching. However, I don't think orange would look very good. I think red is too overused now.

    I think red on the calipers may be played out as well. I think that's why Tesla stopped it. However, I agree with @sflgator in that you can't see the black. I was thinking about having mine painted a different color. Was considering the acid green like the Porsche 918 Spyder or light blue. I...

    Black interior with the ebony wood. Very happy with my choice. Looks much better in person than in the photos.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Took delivery of my Plaid yesterday. It's absolutely amazing. So happy with my purchase. It's an engineering marvel and work of art at the same time. I'm actually enjoying the yoke. It's just really fun. The turn signals as buttons is taking a some getting used to though. My one gripe is that...

    Anyone get quotes on painting the brake calipers Tesla red? I was quoted $699 in Dallas. Seems high.

    My MSM Plaid is to be delivered to my home tomorrow. Dropped by the Dallas Cedar Springs SC to see if it was in the lot. It was but had not been cleaned yet. I did see a black LR with cream/wood interior and spiders. The black looks amazing in person. Photos do not do it justice. I had...

    Yes. My Plaid is supposed to be delivered to my home on Monday. Not sure why they are doing that. It's just as easy for me to leave work and go the SC as it is to go home.

    Update - Delivery for my Plaid set for June 28 2pm. Delivering to my house instead of Dallas service center. Strange but I'll take it!

    I just received a VIN. I received an email to make final payment. Then went to account page, and VIN was there! Dallas, Texas - RN 1150 - Plaid MSM/Black interior with wood, Spiders, No FSD - Delivery is June 28-30.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Plaid orderer from Dallas here. Still stuck on June. Has everyone that received a car at the event or that received a VIN had FSD? I think FSD has a long way to go, so did not order. I'm thinking that's a strike against me.

    Did anyone who attended the event get photos of the black interior?

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    That's what I did. Bought a used, late model, low miles M3. Taxes and reg divided over number of months of wait time is less than renting per month especially when there is no end to the wait time.

    They just changed. Noticed the same thing. They are dark grey now. Look much better.

    I did the same. I figure it is a cheap option at $100 for probability of big announcement. LR at blank still. Plaid at June. Feels good to line cut or at least to have the option to.

    I ended up buying a 2019 Model 3 with low miles to get me through however many months until my Refresh S LR is delivered. It was hard to find one. The gently used ones are selling for more than new ones go for because of the delivery times. I will sell it when the Refresh S LR is delivered, and...

    2021 Model S Refresh Chrome Delete

    Chrome Delete on P100D - what do people do on the P100D badge?

    Doing a Chrome delete on my 2017 Model S P100D that I just bought. I am wondering for those that have done it on P100D or P90D, what do you do on the P100D or P90D badge. Do you chrome delete the whole thing or just the 100 and the line underneath? I know many remove the badge, but I paid too...

    Looking for Guidance on a Used Model S

    I've been watching the used Model S market as well. I have a '14 S85 and am looking to move up to a circa 2016-2017 P100D. I think there is currently a HUGE bid ask gap in the used car market. Sellers are trying to hold on, but no one will pay their prices. There is about to be a huge reset with...

    TPMS reset on V10

    Thanks Bsarv. Yes, your assumptions were all correct. Gen 1. 10.2. Tesla quoted me $1100 to upgrade to Continental Gen 2. No thanks. Think I'm going to try the Autel programmable ones now.

    TPMS reset on V10

    Thanks Bsarv. I bought the MaxiTPMS Pad and was able to read all 4 sensors for their ID #, temp, and pressure. Does this mean that the sensors are ok? For battery, each sensor came up as N/A, but presumably if the reader can read it, there is sufficient battery. Should I try buying the Autel...

    TPMS reset on V10

    I have a 2014 Model S 85. I started getting TPMS error message after v10 and came here to find answers after reset sensor button was removed. Since 10.2 has come out, I hit the TPMS reset and tried the wheel configuration change. Error message remains. I don't think I have driven 10 minutes...

    What to do when Tesla refuses to make warranty repair

    I am happy to report that Tesla finally did the right thing and replaced the drive unit. I had to appeal to the service manager who heard it on his drive along with me in the car. I am so happy I don't have to hear the drone sound any more.

    What to do when Tesla refuses to make warranty repair

    Give them a chance? I've been to the SC four or five times now and spent $1400 on new tires as they claimed that was cause of noise. I've given them plenty of chances. They're trying to stick me with a defective unit and hoping I quit coming back.

    What to do when Tesla refuses to make warranty repair

    The drive unit makes a humming/whirring noise that my previous drive unit never made at acceleration above 38 MPH. I just want a drive unit that isn't defective.

    I have a '14 S85. Drive unit #1 failed and left car inoperable. Tesla replaced with drive unit that makes humming sound above 38 mph. Been to SC 4 times.

    When is best time to trade in S85 for D with AP?

    Correct. It wasn't an inventory car. They count the sale once the car is delivered. So, for custom builds, you need to hit them around 45 days before quarter end. They may care more about end of year than end of quarter as well. Not sure.

    When is best time to trade in S85 for D with AP?

    I have a buddy who was contacted by Tesla to trade in his current S85 for a 90D with AP. He got a great deal on trade-in. Essentially was paying the same monthly payment for brand new car with all the upgrades. This occurred in late Nov of 2015 and his understanding from Tesla was that Tesla...

    I can also vouch for the work Jon does. I bought some 19" T Sportline TST wheels in silver. Jon powder coated them to match the Tesla grey color of the 21" OEM perfomance wheels. They look fantastic.

    Rockster and bollar, thanks for the kind offers to use your chargers. I was looking for a charger along I-35 though. I thought with the elevation change in my favor I could make it back to Dallas in one charge on the return trip. I also dialed the speed back 5 mph and just stayed at 70...

    Anyone know where to get new wheels mounted on Model S in Dallas?

    I received the same answer from Dallas SC. Will not mount aftermarket wheels. They said there is nothing special about Tesla wheels so any tire place could do the work. Tirerack recommended Autoscope for Tesla.

    I talked to Tirerack about the 19 inch Rial Luganos that are due in mid October and that fit the factory center cap pieces. They told me those wheels could not be ordered in the titanium gunmetal. They would be offered in a new color, Graphite silver. They sent me a photo of the color. My...
