    95+ score and no FSD Beta today?

    I have a Plaid X with a 99, had my car at service for 5 days (they did nothing btw, it just sat there because they ordered the wrong part) so I had to be a Karen and snatch the car back from them. Of course I didn’t get the update while it was in service mode, and probably missed the “wave”. Sigh.

    FSD beta expansion to new beta testers June 2022

    Wonderful. I should be getting FSD Beta but my car is in service until Monday. I guess I’ll just get skipped?

    22” Michelin Pilot Sport 4S - incredibly noisy?

    Hi all, I installed a new set of T-Sportline 22” wheels with these tires on my Model X Plaid. Torqued them to spec, and supposedly they come already balanced. Wow, they make the most annoying noise. It’s a very audible whirring sound at low and high speeds. Almost like I’m in a wind tunnel, or...

    T Sportline TSV Wheel (Uberturbine) 22's - Can anyone who has these chime in?

    Thank you for getting back to me! Ah, I thought the cap would leave a gap around it, not that it would protrude? Seems like it’s possible to hack it to fit. Appreciate that link! The TSV’s are on the way though. Those Avant Garde wheels are super cool btw

    T Sportline TSV Wheel (Uberturbine) 22's - Can anyone who has these chime in?

    Hi, did you ever get this to work? I just ordered the TSV 22’s and didn’t realize the Uberturbine caps might not fit!

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Had a MYP, sold in December for S Plaid Just traded in S Plaid for X Plaid. Much better car.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    This is the 3rd Tesla I’m doing the safety score game on. I’m so sick of it. Had a 100 with 300+ miles, then just a single FCW knocks me down to 98.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Good point. I never bought wheels that are not OEM so I have some research to do. I’m such a noob when it comes to this LOL

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    My X Plaid is already built but kinda wish I got the 22’s. Tesla doesn’t seem to sell them, and can’t find a set on eBay. Does anyone know a good alternative? Whenever I order a car, I pimp it out to the max with every OEM option lol. I think the wheels were silver when I ordered so I opted...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Received a VIN on 4/30, with a new EDD of May 15th to 19th. Yesterday, it changed to May 11th to 17th. Today, I received a text to schedule a “Tentative” appointment with the earliest being the 23rd. Bummer. I’ve bought 5 Teslas and never had that happen. Chance of getting it sooner? I’m too...

    Refreshed 2021/2022 Model X Owners Thread

    My X Plaid is almost here. Kind of annoyed that I didn’t get the 22s. Tesla shop doesn’t even have them available to purchase. What’s a good alternative?
  13. anthonyj

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    It’s real wood, just a thin veneer. I have an S Plaid with the wood, looks amazing with white seats. Hopefully I can order the wood trim for my X Plaid

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Going from Model S to X. Does the X feel a lot taller while driving? Like an SUV? Or does it kind of feel low?

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Anyone get a trade in value for a Plaid S? Thinking of trading mine in for the Plaid X. I ordered them both a long time ago but really wanted the X. Finally got a VIN!

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I’m wanting to trade in my ‘21 S Plaid with FSD for a new X Plaid (I originally had both on order). Anyone get a trade in value from Tesla for their Plaid? Thanks :)

    Any third party, LED rear tail lights for the Model S instead of the crappy, 2000s looking ones we have?

    A few days after I wrote that, the new tail lights got leaked. I’m trying to get my hands on the new tails and see if I can retrofit them first

    Wiki Matrix LED Headlights Retrofit Journey

    Are you going to try to retrofit the outside taillight w/ new charger door? Does the assembly for that piece have separate connections for the charger inlet and taillight? I was thinking to Frankenstein the old inlet into the new taillight assembly
  19. anthonyj

    Left side inner taillight panel fitment

    Ah. I see. That wouldn’t bother me too much. It’s what makes each Tesla unique. It’s in a location no one will ever look at. Check out my Plaid’s birthmark on the rear quarter near lift gate
  20. anthonyj

    Left side inner taillight panel fitment

    I don’t understand what’s wrong… the overhang in the top? Maybe it’s normal with the new lights
  21. anthonyj

    Wiki Matrix LED Headlights Retrofit Journey

    When you drive an S for a couple years, go to a 3 and then a Y, and back to an S, you will understand how horrible these headlights are. Plus, what I really really want are the taillights. I have enough TSLA stonks tyvm
  22. anthonyj

    Wiki Matrix LED Headlights Retrofit Journey

    Pengy, if you can make this chip thingy and teach us how to retrofit the new lights, you can definitely make a few bucks. I’m considering taking a $20k bath and trading in my Plaid for the new. You are our only hope Pengy

    Wiki Matrix LED Headlights Retrofit Journey

    I wonder if the old charge port can be rigged onto the new light. Might look like crap when you open the charge port, hmm
  24. anthonyj

    Wiki Matrix LED Headlights Retrofit Journey

    They are the same exact shape on the outside
  25. anthonyj

    New charge port LED placement is horrendous.

    Just be happy that you got the new lights and your car is worth $20k more than the 2021/2022 refresh

    Mine only shows in certain lighting conditions. I learned to ignore it, service will probably make it worse

    Early '22 Exterior Refresh Tracking (Lights, Charging Door, Appliqué delete)

    Yeah I know. I heard they are coming in June. It’s so early adopters are forced to buy a refreshed refresh since we absolutely need the best. Domestic abuse. My question is related to the original X headlights though. Are they super sucky like the S?
  28. anthonyj

    Early '22 Exterior Refresh Tracking (Lights, Charging Door, Appliqué delete)

    Are the Model X headlights as bad as the S? Might trade my Plaid in for the Plaid X
  29. anthonyj

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    I ordered way back when the car was $120k and $10k for FSD. My order agreement now says $126,500 and $12k. That’ll be adjusted back down, right?

    Model S 2022 New Taillight Will NOT Retrofit - Just Confirmed Today :(

    yeah, probably when the Plaid+ is released with an active spoiler. Then they will be forced to change the metal
  31. anthonyj

    Model S 2022 New Taillight Will NOT Retrofit - Just Confirmed Today :(

    I’m surprised that this isn’t known yet. The new new S has been around for a month. I guess we’ll know soon. I bet it won’t work and it’ll take a year for someone to develop some sort of adapter. I’m sure many 2020 and lower owners want the new lights
  32. anthonyj

    Early '22 Exterior Refresh Tracking (Lights, Charging Door, Appliqué delete)

    Has anyone removed their headlights/taillights yet? I’m curious to know if the “old” refresh has different wiring compared to the old old S. Maybe everything is all there ready for the new lights. Idk lol
  33. anthonyj

    How to tell if you have Matrix headlights?

    Simple, look at your tail lights. Do they look like they belong on a 2012 car or a 2022 car? If they look the latter, congrats you are in the matrix. Your car has to be built in late February at the earliest so no you don’t have matrix LED. The matrix LED kind of looks like HID projectors
  34. anthonyj

    Model S 2022 New Taillight Will NOT Retrofit - Just Confirmed Today :(

    Exactly. It’s not different. Until someone gets a hold of the new light we won’t know if it’s retrofittable.
  35. anthonyj

    Model S 2022 New Taillight Will NOT Retrofit - Just Confirmed Today :(

    I REALLY doubt the quarter panel is new. If they changed anything with the stamping they would have changed the lift gate and gotten rid of the rear appliqué trim altogether. Think. The wiring may be different. That doesn’t mean someone can’t come up with some sort of adapter to make it work. I...

    Early '22 Exterior Refresh Tracking (Lights, Charging Door, Appliqué delete)

    Has anyone gotten trade in values for their Plaids? Not sure if I want to spend $250 order fee just to get insulted by a low ball offer. And before someone says that I definitely WILL be disappointed, I’m not sure, Tesla offered way more than anyone else for my mom’s Lexus

    Please let this be retrofittable. Looks like Tesla took the easy way out and just made a new appliqué that we can snap on
  41. anthonyj

    Early '22 Exterior Refresh Tracking (Lights, Charging Door, Appliqué delete)

    Some people thought I was crazy to suggest that Tesla is doing all of this to make early adopters repurchase the car. Here’s more proof. Horn is coming back to the center of the wheel. I’m not a yoke complainer, but it made ZERO sense to make the horn a button

    New Headlights and Taillights Confirmed?

    Hi! :) May I ask a question? How is it possible, in the age of iPhone 13 Pro and Galaxy S69, that we can’t get ONE clear picture of the new Model S rear? Not even one? There has been two sightings on the road, and one in a damn showroom, but we can’t get a clear pic? I just want to see if the...

    New Model S Headlight/Taillights in North America?

    I’d bet good money it comes this quarter to US. I’d bet good money that they aren’t retrofittable and I’ll end up getting one. I’d bet good money Plaid Plus comes out a few months later after I rebuy the same car.
  45. anthonyj

    New Headlights and Taillights Confirmed?

    I’ll explain it once again. Tesla knows that early adopters in NA will sell their outdated Plaid to get the new look. Who would want to drive around a $150k car that looks identical to a car built in 2011, when you can just go get the new and improved version. We can obviously afford to do so...

    New Headlights and Taillights Confirmed?

    They could use them for warranty

    Any third party, LED rear tail lights for the Model S instead of the crappy, 2000s looking ones we have?

    I hear you man. The tail lights bothered me so much that I bought an extra set to dissect and figure out how to get that solid LED look. The headlights suck big time but at least they still look cool
  48. anthonyj

    Any third party, LED rear tail lights for the Model S instead of the crappy, 2000s looking ones we have?

    I picked up mine a week before the first spy photos of the tails showed up on Twitter. I almost didn’t pick up the car because I knew this would happen lol. FML. The tails really bother me. The design is cool but really wish they had the solid bar look like the 3 X and Y
