    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    Thanks! I have been questioning my sanity for ordering a new Model S 3 years after getting one. However, the gains across the categories of performance, drivetrain, electrical/charging, battery mgmt, design and FUN have eliminated any regrets! A few other notes: 1. Charging on the same...

    Regarding seat pleats, I looked at 4 refresh Models S cars awaiting delivery today and a few had pleats in various spots while 1-2 of them didn’t have any.

    21” Black Arachnid Wheel fit on new Model S LR?

    Here is the response I got from a service manager. “The original arachnid wheels would not fit the newer Model S for 2021+. They are only meant to be installed on the original 2012-2020 Model S vehicles. We would not be able to advise on using any spacers or anything to modify the way the...

    Is the new LR getting the same motor tech as Plaid?

    @Olle Simplification and cost reduction sure make sense especially for all things Tesla these days. However, the same motors from the M3 in a heavier car wouldn't be able to achieve the same performance. I believe the 0-60 times for the M3P and MSLR are both 3.1 indicating that the MS must...

    Is the new LR getting the same motor tech as Plaid?

    So is this new carbon-wrapped motor technology in both the new Model S Plaid and LR versions or Plaid only? I was assuming both were using the same tech with the Plaid adding tri-motor but the more I read, the less certain it becomes. Is the LR using the same drive tech as the previous Model...

    Model S Trade In - Ridiculous Offer

    Tesla uses a 3rd party for pricing and purchasing trade-ins. That 3rd party offers wholesale pricing. I've confirmed this by comparing estimates I've received over time against Manheim Auctions MMR and they are within a few hundred dollars consistently. Tesla pricing is very volatile, more...

    My car is an Aug 2018 build. At the time, the website still stated the sunroof was required for XM and roof racks. However, I'm able to tune the promo/sales channel from XM with the glass roof.
