    I hate to admit this .. but ..

    the only way I see the Model 3 being nicer is if you can't afford a Model S.

    Black Onyx Wheels

    I had my silver rims powder coated on my Model S and they turned out perfect. They have been on just over one year and look as good as day one. The total cost including R&R of the tires was $1000. Hope this helps, good luck...

    Looks like it's the fuse & fuse bolts. I had the Ludicrous upgrade performed in Dec 2015. I recently had my Annual check-up and here is a copy of part of my recent Invoice. looks like mine was OK, but they had to pull the battery to check. Concern: Update Ludicrous Speed Retrofit Components...

    Which Portable Compressor to Buy?

    I decided to purchase a portable air compressor for my Model S in the chance I get a flat on the road. I already have the Safety Seal Auto/Light Truck kit. I looked at many compressors and believe I’ve narrowed it down to the VIAIR models 70P, 77P or 85P but open to other suggestions. All...

    P85D Ludicrous Problems?

    My P85D was delivered February 2015. Had the Ludicrous Mode done end of December. The upgrade is amazing, would do it again in a heart beat. The only thing I noticed was my 100% charge before the upgrade was 256 miles (and before 7.1) and now it's 249 miles. I don't know if 7.1 has anything...

    Just put 300 freeway miles on 7.1 autopilot

    Sounds like an easy trip. 1) What route did you take? 2) What speed did you have TACC set at? 3) How often did AP Nag? 4) Any AP incidents?

    Performance of P85D with Ludicrous upgrade review

    Question for those P85D owners that upgraded to the Ludicrous mode. Prior to the upgrade my 100% charge was 256 miles. After the Ludicrous upgrade, my 100% charge is 249 miles. Has anyone else seen a decrease in their 100% charge.

    XPEL Ultimate, OptiCoat Pro, cQuartz, Oh My!

    on my Model S I went with front and rear XPEL and CQuartz Finest. Like CHG-ON said, the car is as smooth as glass and a breeze to wash. CQuartz Finest also brings out a superior shine and water beads off nicely. I will, without a doubt, do XPEL and CQuartz Finest on my next new vehicle...

    To P or NOT to P...

    It's not only 0-60 but acceleration from 20, 40, 60 and 80 up... Look at the Thread "Performance of P85D with Ludicrous upgrade review" In part it states: "The P85D with ludicrous upgrade is significantly faster than without. There is 19% more power above 30 mph, 0-60 time drops from 3.2 to...

    To P or NOT to P...

    funny how you can have two opposite opinions from two different P85D owners. I don't do launches but I love the power at my fingertips. My car stays in Insane mode all the time. I'm also upgrading to the Ludicrous next week and can't wait. If I was to buy now I'd go with the P90D.

    Ludicrous mode: is it worth it?

    just wondering, if 1) you seldom drive freeways and the speed limits are mostly 50 MPH and lower in the Napa Valley 2) you've probably needed that (0-60 in about 6 seconds) acceleration 20 times in 20 years...why in the world would you have spent the extra money for Insane mode in the first...

    So do you leave a note for an ICEd charging spot?

    I don't see how lifting a windshield wiper to place a note under it qualifies for vandalism. The definition of "vandalism" is: "action involving deliberate destruction of or damage to public or private property." No deliberate destruction in placing a note under the wiper.

    P85D motor hp controversy starts also to show in U.S. media

    you're missing the whole point.....Tesla advertises the P85D has X, I purchased the vehicle based on Tesla's representation but the vehicle only produces Y. This has nothing to do with, "cars is that they poison life on Earth and dangerously" or "criminally warm the atmosphere"

    2015 Tesla Model S 85D - No Longer Available

    I don't understand, the OP puts his car for sale and names a price. Then Forum Members tell him his new car is not worth what he's asking and rip him up. If your not interested in the car move on, why do you have to crap on his thread. Good luck on your sale swillett06!!
