    At least that fancy finished set has both sides, and isn't all one direction like on many Roadsters.

    Yeah, I was thinking about the tire swap if the unidirectional tread is wrong. There may be difference of opinion as to the "preferred" spin direction.

    Info on small rear corner window break-ins

    Typically the thieves are driving rental cars with stolen plates on them. They seem to rent for at least a few weeks and go to the trouble of dark tinting the rental car windows before heading out on their daily foray around the bay area. It is basically their "job" to just keep doing this...

    OK I fixed it - it seems it picked up the "Sport" from the wrong link you had. The hyperlink was pointing to some listing for #774, not #589...
  18. TEG

    Today's Roadster Orphan

    #589 used to be silver, but they repainted it black now. From an old listing: Along with the new black paint, it looks like they got new forged wheels for it. (The old listing above shows it originally had cast wheels.)

    Does anyone know what vin number they started the 2.25 and the 2.5 at?

    I thought the matte gray was a wrap... (I collect Roadster photos... In hindsight, I should have bought a Roadster or some TSLA stock! )
  21. TEG

    Does anyone know what vin number they started the 2.25 and the 2.5 at?

    It looks like a 2.0 sport to me. The transition from 2.0 to 2.5 started around VIN #964 You seem to have 1.5/2.0 style front/rear bumpers not the 2.5 versions.
  22. TEG

    Does anyone know what vin number they started the 2.25 and the 2.5 at?

    A 2.25 is just a 2.0 that was upgraded to (mostly) 2.5 specs. The most obvious sign would be the newer front and rear bumpers. A more thorough conversion would include changing the single DIN dash to double DIN. (Although there are a small number of actual 2.5s with single DIN, the double DIN...

    So... The cars look correct there (pictures seem to match VIN / descriptions, etc.) but I can't vouch if the listings are current. Some web sites keep old listings up long after cars are sold. So better inquire before getting your hopes up, and as usual be very careful with any "buy over the...

    Questions on my, new to me 2011 Tesla Roadster || Signature 250 Support (153) || Utah

    From what little I know on that - not many. Very few. You have to be a little careful to discount all the early SFZRE VINs in EPs/VPs/Founders' and early Sig100s which were showing as made in Europe but most were always intended to end up in USA. There are also some later SFZRE VINs made for...

    I think that may be North American production Roadster #841... Sort of an oddball from the VIN pool. I think perhaps considered a prototype first unit for "official" sale into Australia.

    Yeah, I just had one other grainy sighting photo of it in a parking garage. As far as I can tell it has always been in southern California.
