    Wiki Matrix LED Headlights Retrofit Journey

    Even with the "update Config ID 28 to value 2" trick? Or do we know for sure if that works yet?

    Wiki Matrix LED Headlights Retrofit Journey

    Apologies if this has already been answered. Are the physical connections the same as the old lights? If so, what happens when connected? I'm wondering if there is basic functionality when connected or if they just stay dark.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    It will almost certainly have the new lights. Hopefully you are right about the reason for the older VIN. The number of miles on the car has nothing to do with being a reject so look it over very carefully before accepting and paying for it. BTW, my vote would be to skip it and wait for a...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    Nooooooo! Very few people will be willing to gut their car. Please share your setup so that those of us without gutted cars can work on optimizing our times.

    Getting the truth about why it was rejected is very unlikely. They straight up lied to me and I found out later on my own. Take what they say with a very large grain of salt.

    New plaid graphics rear badge dealer part number?

    Are they charging install labor? I also only paid about $8.00 for mine. Tell them you only want one.

    Is some cheetah better than no cheetah?

    Thanks. I have been hearing both good and bad. I'll start using it every time now. Even if I'm only a few seconds into it when I launch.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    You can pretty safely ignore the early fluctuations. It does seem that deliveries nearest the factory get filled sooner. Also, we have seen times when an EDD goes way out just before getting a VIN and delivering sooner.

    Is some cheetah better than no cheetah?

    For launch control (cheetah stance) launches, if I launch before the car gets all the way to "Ready to Launch", will I still have better results than if I had launched without launch control at all?

    Their support is outstanding. The online videos should be correct for your car except for maybe the emergency release cable.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    Mounting the latch motor is a pain in all variants. In previous variant I mounted mine behind where the front grille would be. Last install was on my Plaid and I mounted it to structural beam similar to the online instructions. Most important is to make sure the bend radius of the release...

    2021 Refreshed Model S - steering wheel yolk material peeling off?

    I just submitted a service request to have mine replaced again. The first time it came back from service with damage and they replaced it. I have been very careful but still it occasionally contacts my pants while getting in and out and a spot has worn through the covering.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    Plan on 2 - 3 hours. I thought it would take me less time the second time but this design is different from the last so it took 2 - 3 hours both times for me. they do have a good step by step instruction online.

    Plaid represents at no prep drag racing

    Love those times all the way down! Especially impressive that they were done with 21s. I now have my plan for the next test n tune. Unfortunately there aren't many over the summer due to the heat. I'm almost ready to rent the track for a night.

    How to get the best times with my 21" wheels (Signature SV104) at the drag strip?

    I hadn't thought about lining up behind a drag car on big slicks. I'll try to make that happen. I always go as wide as possible around the water box.

    How to get the best times with my 21" wheels (Signature SV104) at the drag strip?

    How to get the best times with my 21" wheels (Signature SV104) at the drag strip?

    That is what I am expecting and I'm frustrated that I can't get there. As far as I know the next nearest track is about 100 miles away with no superchargers nearby so it would be difficult to get there and run with a decent SOC. I'll keep looking for alternatives.

    How to get the best times with my 21" wheels (Signature SV104) at the drag strip?

    No other Plaids there so I'm just going by internet time slips. I'm starting to think it is prep also. My 2 teen sons came out to video my runs and I was shocked to hear the amount of spin. Very obvious outside the car but I didn't hear it inside. Most runs were above 90% SOC and dragstrip...

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    For those yet to install, I found what I think is the perfect spot to mount the control box under the left apron. This location and position allows for easy access and firmware updates via the micro SD card slot.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    No splicing wires. You will need to remove the frunk and the latch. The rest is basically plugging in connectors, routing wires, attaching the latch release to the existing latch, and attaching the latch motor and control box. They have step by step instructions. The install is easily reversible.

    How to get the best times with my 21" wheels (Signature SV104) at the drag strip?

    Last week I was only being able to do 9.6 - 9.8 seconds at the drag strip. It is frustrating to see other Plaids with 21s running 9.2 - 9.4 seconds. My 60' times ranging from 1.64 to 1.76 implies the problem is at launch. I didn't hear/feel slippage until late in the evening. Tesla Plaid...

    The paint looked thicker at the door edges so I asked my PPF guy to check it with a thickness meter. It was essentially double the normal thickness everywhere.

    It happens sometimes. The delivery system does not seem to make sense to us outsiders. I ordered my Plaid close to midnight on August 4th (after a few too many beers) and got an EDD of Feb - March 2022. I check the next morning and already had a VIN and a delivery date of August 8th! As you...

    Sounds to me like they are just trying to get you to just accept the car. They can tell exactly what your cars "birthday" is. When I texted (510) 330-1671 and asked I got this response: "Hello, your car's Birthday: Thu Jun 3 7:44:07 2021 Thank you." Not sure if that number for Tesla Order...

    I also have the EVOffer frunk kit on my MS Plaid and use it almost every day for my laptop bag. I never used the frunk until I installed this. Tesla should ship the cars with power frunks. For those on the fence, I had this on my MS Raven and really missed it on the Plaid. I installed it as...

    Do you have PPF on your car? PPF on your sensors can cause this.

    They won't disclose anything. In my case they lied to me. The sooner you decline that VIN, the sooner a good build will have your name on it.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Leave it as cash for now. It appears that cash instead of financing will get you a car faster. When you have a VIN and your car is actually in transit you can have them switch you back to financing. You also get the benefit of fewer credit pulls and expirations.

    Not really. In all seriousness, you did indeed have to go through more than anyone should ever have to go through to get their car made right. You have my sincerest sympathies for that.

    I'm still jealous though, the dreaded Tesla FOMO is real with me. You are getting the new lights front and rear and the tilting screen that @Tigers lusted over for so long (until the song of the Versa got to him).

    That is still a pretty tight window. Have you called to confirm the car is in transit yet? They can 'ping' your car and tell you where it is.

    I had the same problem trying to get the MS4S rears. Solved it with a different size which is widely available. See the details here: Michelin Pilot Sport 4S in 295/30/21 backordered - what about 315/30/21 ? So far I'm very happy with the result.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Don't try to understand it. There does not seem to be any obvious logic to it. I ordered last fall and had to wait a whole 8 hours before I got a VIN and my delivery date was a long 4 days later. You can guess how that went over on the forums. :cool:

    Jeep backed into my car and now the rear hatch is not flush, repair shop says it wasn't the jeep

    It should not matter if it is "within spec". What should matter is whether or not yours looked like that before the incident. If yours was a perfect fit then that is what you should get back when they body shop is done.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Deliveries seem to happen sooner if the buyer has the car setup as a cash purchase. You can contact them to change it to cash. You can easily change your payment back to financing but I would wait until the car is actually in transit to you. Don't let them rush you.

    Michelin Pilot Sport 4S in 295/30/21 backordered - what about 315/30/21 ?

    They do and you are indeed deserving of the title "the Wheel Whisperer". I have posted this info with more details in a separate thread that I can update after more testing: Michelin Pilot Sport 4S in 295/30/21 backordered - what about 315/30/21 ?
