    First 2022 VINs (and changes) discussion / Thread

    I’m still confused. The 5th digit is G which is Tesla’s new designation for the Y, Multi Purpose Vehicle (mpv). My original Roadster VIN also starts with 5YJ. According to Electrek all Tesla’s made in the US start with 5YJ...

    First 2022 VINs (and changes) discussion / Thread

    I just got my VIN. From my research the first three digits indicate country of origin. 5YJ is the US and LRW is China. Mine also starts with 7SAY ? I checked 2021 Y’s listed for sale in the US and they start with 5YJ. Has Tesla changed the country coding for 2022?

    I think Ob1Kenobi is right. You may have to take delivery then re-sell the car

    Roadster loss

    Terrible news for the Roadster community :(. There is no one more passionate about Roadsters than Pete. It’s companies like Gruber that keep passion for Roadsters alive. Hoping he rebuilds even bigger and better.

    Can anyone help me

    Keep trying. I spoke with one of the sales reps recently and he was able to get his customer a refund for a founders edition in about thirty days. You might also try sending a registered letter with return receipt to Tesla. This will give you a paper trail that they’ll have to respond to.

    Tesla Model 3: Three Year Review – Driving, Charging, and Battery Status (Part 2)

    Just over 100k Miles on our 2018 Model3 LR. 95% of charging is done at home to 80%-90%. Normally 90% in winter, and 80% in summer. Current range is 250 miles @ 90% and 280 miles @ 100%. The biggest range drops have been at about 50k and 100k.

    Who has had/having their roadster deposit refunded

    I think it’s a valid question. Who’s has had their deposit refunded or asked for a refund, and how many are left?

    Registration Mandatory?

    I’m not sure about PA, but in Oklahoma we can buy a black tag to use when the car isn’t being driven. It’s much less expensive and you down’t have to pay back taxes when you put it back on the road.

    Blog Tesla Roadster Delayed Until 2022

    It sounds like they are going to be using the Plaid drive train. To outperform the Plaid S they’ll have to get the weight down and traction up, Thrusters could take care of both, but only if they were installed on every car :-)

    When will it be possible to get a good used Roadster under $150,000? 12 months after launch?

    I imagine there are quite a few people who qualified for a partial discount, but even with an 18% discount you’re looking at over $200k, and that’s without options. A person would either need to have the cash, or a bank to provide them with a loan. Payments on a loan this size could easily be...

    Base vs Founders

    It sounds like the SpacEx package will be an additional option. The question is, How much? Knowing Elon, you’ll be required to provide proof you are actually insane to use it!

    When will it be possible to get a good used Roadster under $150,000? 12 months after launch?

    A nicely optioned original Roadster sold new for $120 -$130K. Today you can pick one up for $50k-$60k. There is no reason to expect that the new car will be any different. I’m sure you’ll be able to add at least $50k in options, So I’d say in ten years you’ll be able to buy a new Roadster for...

    18% off Roadster

    As far as I know, there isn’t a way to transfer the discount, short of handing over the money to the referral owner and hoping you get a car. This is going to limit the number of free cars to those who actually won it outright, and even then, taxes are going to reduce that number even further...

    What’s everyone’s best guess as to the percentage of people that received a discount will actually purchase a Roadster?

    Is that 10% off for the Founders Edition? Or did you get 10% off from referrals?

    Supercharger - Ozark, AR

    You’re correct. The packs are in a separate box. I wasn’t able to see them because the unit can’t be opened while it’s in use. Their primary purpose is to even out the voltage from the incoming 3phase line.

    Supercharger - Ozark, AR

    Yep, as of this afternoon it’s up and working. I spoke with Brian the tech, super nice guy. He had driven all the way from Abilene to work on it. Turns out it was some incorrect dip switch settings but should be good to go now. He also explained how the V3 charger works. There are something like...

    How Many Roadsters are Left?

    I’ve been wondering this myself. Any idea how many Tesla has bought back? I’ve heard they have a lot full of them somewhere in California.

    Supercharger - Lowell, AR

    I charged successfully today and all stalls appear open. Max rate was about 350 mph. As far as I can tell, I wasn’t billed for the charge. I expect Tesla has the charge rate turned down until it officially goes online.

    What Happened to the thread of the 110k mile Model3

    That has to be one of the highest mile Model 3’s out there. The video was very informative and I think lots of people would be interested. I know I was. We have 55k on ours and charge to about 295 at 100%. The fact he is still able to charge to 308 is amazing.

    TPMS CONTINUES TO FAIL... [RANT] And they are gonna send people the mars?

    TPMS CONTINUES TO FAIL... [RANT] And they are gonna send people the mars?

    Hi Shawn, Thanks for reaching out. The car is in the #600's and I purchased it from a forum member who took excellent care of it. I went to a tire store and they couldn't detect any of the sensors, which I find highly unlikely they would all go bad at the same time. I'm not sure they were...
