    I’m going to close the thread now. These sold to a terrific gentleman from NC for $2500 cash.

    FS 20" Model 3 Uberturbines from 2022 Performance. Brand New

    Yup, still available. 500 miles on the tires, perfect condition all the way around.

    lightweight wheels model 3 performance 0-60 testing

    Sounds like a reasonable plan to me. I’ll be looking forward to your results.

    FS 20" Model 3 Uberturbines from 2022 Performance. Brand New

    Hey, I just picked up my 2022 Model 3 Performance and immediately installed a new set of Martian Wheels on it. So, I've got a brand new set of Uberturbines and a brand new set of tires on them. Location is Atlanta OTP, between Woodstock and Alpharetta. I'll be happy to deliver anywhere in the...

    Hit a pothole and got 2 flats on my Model 3 Performance

    I’m on the same boat and actively shopping for 19” rims and four season tires before I pick up my M3P in a week or two. What rims do you recommend?

    2021 Model S LR+ sale ideas while I wait for my 2022 LR+

    This is what I have decided to do. The MS is just too good to let go of. I drove several m3 recently and it’s just not for me. Thanks!

    2021 Model S LR+ sale ideas while I wait for my 2022 LR+

    That’s a good point! Thanks. I’m going to shop around a bit for the best resale value I can get on the Model S. If I can find a valuation over $80k I think the numbers make enough sense for me to do it.

    2021 Model S LR+ sale ideas while I wait for my 2022 LR+

    Not a bad idea… but the resale on the M3 seems to be very close or the same to the new purchase price… Where do you find deals?

    2021 Model S LR+ sale ideas while I wait for my 2022 LR+

    Yup! I didn't think I needed to spell out that one car is pre-refresh and the other is post refresh. Y'all know this, but the extra 120 horsepower, ventilated seats, and massively upgraded interior all have value to me. If I could just give $8k and upgrade, that would be a no brainer. And...

    2021 Model S LR+ sale ideas while I wait for my 2022 LR+

    Whats the latest on FSD transferring with the sale of the vehicle? I know I won’t keep it but does the next owner get the benefit?
  11. D

    2021 Model S LR+ sale ideas while I wait for my 2022 LR+

    Sales tax and registration on the 21 Model S was $5650, the Model 3P would be $3800. I’m lucky to live in a low tax area. Doesn’t seem like a deal breaker to me.

    2021 Model S LR+ sale ideas while I wait for my 2022 LR+

    Hey, soooo Im the proud owner of a 2022 Model S LR+ with about 10k miles, blue over the cream interior and FSD. Retail on this is currently in the $80-90k range which is a bit more than I paid for the car at $69,420 + options and tax. I’ve got an order for a 2022 LR+, same spec with an order...

    No new features since December: A New Tesla Strategy?

    Every vehicle with an advanced infotainment system has suffered from occasional bugs and reboots. I wouldn't let this get under your skin if you otherwise love the car. If it does bother you, then do go ahead and move on. I'm sorry it didn't work out.

    Hello from Asheville

    Did you end up buying the car? I'm very curious about your experiences.
  15. D

    No new features since December: A New Tesla Strategy?

    Yup... This is it. Developers are too specific to a specific thing to just casually move around. It could take months to retask a dev into a complicated, fast moving project.

    Need advice on buying a high mileage 2017 Model S75

    So, what terms did you finally get for the loan?

    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    There's two factors that lead to increased consumption from the larger, performance wheels. One, the increased weight leads to increased rotational mass. You can look into this on your own, but it's quite well proven that this requires additional energy to spin. Not all of that energy is...

    P85 rear air springs

    This has been a great discussion. Thanks for the review. Makes me want to pull the frunk tub out and take a look.

    Does the pre-Raven Air suspension have variable comfort settings?

    I’m quoting myself here, but the original point remains. The ride is stiffer, and less comfortable at either high or low ride height compared to normal. We’re quibbling over semantics and missing the original point.
  20. D

    Frunk unlatched at 130mph

    Indeed, 130 mph is a common speed in many places. The car is rated at 155 or better, so the latches should have held and certainly have been tested at those speeds.

    Supercharger - Alpharetta

    Just a couple of updates, Avalon does have a large bank of Superchargers. They're 72kw in my experience. Roswell is sales and service... I know because last week I picked up my new Model S there. :)

    Speed calibration (speedometer)

    With other vehicles, you can reprogram the computer use a OBD scanner. Cost is a few hundred usually, Google for details. I’m not sure about Tesla tho...

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    Mine was right about four weeks. I’m pretty pleased, last time I ordered a truck it took 7 weeks if I remember correctly.

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    Took me a minute to get out there and check. 2021 car with the H pack. Range is 364 at 90% and 405 at 100%. and I love it!

    Long Range Plus 2021 vs Model 3 LR AWD

    Yes, it’s been standard on all Model S for several years. In 2019 it was updated to be adaptive to road conditions and your driving style. I’ve driven cars with and without this and it’s a massive improvement. Definitely recommend the air for the best ride and handling.

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    She’s here!! Right at four weeks from order, I took delivery last night. The car seems flawless and arrived with 7 miles on the odometer and was charged to 90%. So far, so good. Thanks for all the help along the way. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Used 2017 Model S 90D vs 2021 Model S

    Definitely! I'm sure you'll love it and I believe you can still get the 2.49% financing from Tesla if you so choose.
  28. D

    Used 2017 Model S 90D vs 2021 Model S

    There are a lot of upgrades, check Tesla Tap if you want a comprehensive breakdown. But, I'd think carefully about the used one I doubt it's as good of a value when you account for all the stuff they include in the new ones.
  29. D

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    In other news, all the financing was revised to include FSD and the contract is done. I’ll ACH the down payment tomorrow and be ready to pick up hopefully Monday.

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    I have special ordered a vehicle before and it was 10 weeks from order date to delivery. 2015 Ram 1500

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    Well, I dropped by the local Tesla location and talked to my Sales Advisor. He gps tracked the car and found out it’s scheduled to arrive on Sunday (if not sooner). Then, they’ll inspect and it should be ready for delivery 1-2 days later. So, it’ll be 10/14 as my order date, with arrival on or...

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    The difference seem to be small, I ordered blue, with the cream interior and FSD. So, that’s an extra $11k in options. Regardless, I’d imagine they’ll update you pretty soon.
  33. D

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    Mine was 10/14. What did you order and what’s your location?

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    Just got a vin and a delivery estimate update. Hope it sticks. Estimated Delivery: November 09 - November 15

    Waited for years...finally clicked Buy...now what?

    I just spent a week driving a 2017 Model S 75 and didn't think the LEDs were dim at all. I don't see why you'd choose to upgrade them.

    2017-2020 P100D differences

    Heck out Tesla Tap’s website for detailed breakdowns of the changes from year to year. TL;DR there are huge changes to the car in that period.

    Long Range Plus 2021 vs Model 3 LR AWD

    noooooo it’s subjective. Want the smaller, easier to park, sportier car? Get the 3. Want the larger, more luxury and traditional car? Get the S. Which is better depends on what you value.
  38. D

    MYP vs MS LR+

    This is the same story that’s been true with cars v suvs for decades. Physics can not be ignored. It doesn’t matter which one is more advanced, being lower to the ground has compelling advantages for ride and handling. Conversely, people generally like bigger vehicles like trucks and suvs for...

    Long Range Plus 2021 vs Model 3 LR AWD

    One thing I haven’t seen a lot of discussion around is the target market for these cars. M3 was designed to get the price down, essentially try and introduce an ‘economy’ version of a luxury brand. Which takes me to the S\X... these are pure luxury cars. Bigger, quieter, and more expensive...

    Does the pre-Raven Air suspension have variable comfort settings?

    It lowers the pressure to lower the ride height, but that has the effect of reducing the available compression for the suspension. So, if you do end up hitting a bump it will be quite jarring compared to the standard ride height.
  41. D

    Does the pre-Raven Air suspension have variable comfort settings?

    One thing to note is that on vehicles with air suspension you will have less travel in the lower positions, for obvious reasons. Hence, it will appear to be stiffer and perhaps a bit bouncer. Source: I've owned several vehicles with air suspension. The physics are the same, regardless of the...

    Model S vs Audi TDIs vs 535d - looong commute

    Your post is making me chuckle. We just Turn-rented a 2017 Model S 75 for five days to get some experience with it before our 2021 MSLR is delivered. It was a revelation for my wife, who LOVED it. Her first turn behind the wheel she decided to drive all the way to the mountains on a bit of a joy...

    Home delivery or no?

    2020 has broken all the rules. If you've asked a couple of times and the answer is no, I'm not sure what else you could do about it.
  45. D

    After too long on the sidelines, I’m about to become an owner

    Sounds like there's no way to get Raven and a sunroof. That's a shame, I didn't realize how long they made the sunroof and I'd be willing to get a used one if it was Raven and had a sunroof.
  46. D

    Home delivery or no?

    I think the real issue is that they are selling a ton of cars, and you’ve already bought one. I will say, yesterday I went to my local Tesla Sales Center and my SA was there. Super nice kid, and set my up an overnight loaner so I can try it out in my garage. Once you get through, it’ll go well.
  47. D

    Home delivery or no?

    I suggest you email your sales advisor or just the delivery center. They’ll be able to give you an official answer.
