    Yeah and I think they're supposed to be installed on the window. Tesla plays fast and loose with these, no one really cares and hasn't sued them yet over it.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I would just take it. I was faced with the same choice a couple weeks ago and decided to just go for it. I don't miss the tilt screen. But I'm really happy I wasn't assigned a car with the old crummy lights!

    So a few days after taking delivery of my new S Long Range, Rivian reaches out and says my R1T is almost ready 🙃 Anyways, I noticed on my new S the Passenger Airbag OFF indicator never disappears. Is this normal? On my old S it would appear for ~5 seconds and then disappear if the passenger...

    Auto high-beam seems to barely turn on the high beams on my new S. The low-beams provide tons of visibility though. On my old S with the crap lights auto high-beam turns them on very frequently but will constantly mistake road signs or rear reflectors as other cars and flick them on and off...

    I did some night driving yesterday and WOW the new lights are 1000 times better than the old lights. IDK how anyone can say otherwise. This seals the deal for me. I'm selling my P100D and keeping my new LR.

    Well, I decided to go through with delivery on my LR. Acceleration is a lot better than I expected and off the line it is not that much slower than my P100D. It definitely accelerates 60-90 quicker, too! I'm going to continue using it for a few more days before deciding which to keep, but I'm...

    Well crap, I was planning on making the determination within about a week. I may reject this VIN and get back in line, and in the meantime try to find a car I can test drive.

    Woah first I've heard of banning for reselling. I did some quick searching and it seems some people got banned for reselling a single car? I'm not entirely sure I'm going to like my new S over my existing one. If I sell it, will I get banned?

    Take out HV batt pack / cut out bad cell? (S P85+)

    Interesting. I wasn't expecting such a detailed reply! So what you would do with a pack with a bad module is just remove the whole module and re-use the remaining ones for a different use case. With the 3/Y and refresh S/X packs with just 4/5 modules, this makes the packs way less re-usable...

    Take out HV batt pack / cut out bad cell? (S P85+)

    Is the Tesla BMS just picky and doesn't know how to deal with a pack missing a cell or with a replacement module? How are the Tesla battery modules usable in something like an EV conversion if they must be so perfectly matched?

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Interesting. Guess it's safer to just take delivery. Selling it at the current MSRP would net me a decent profit and offer someone immediate delivery.

    You took over someone else's order?

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    You can't even edit that info once you've put it in though. I'll probably just take delivery and decide which one I like more, current P100D or the new LR and sell the one that I don't like as much. Thinking I'll keep my P100D but who knows I may be surprised. It'll tie up money and just...

    So, anyone know if it's possible to transfer a reservation? I know they generally don't want to do that but is it possible or no?

    Hm, my assigned VIN was built April 15th before the screen tilt was implemented. I wonder why they're trying to pass off an old car on me.

    Woke up to a VIN this morning, NF476xxx A few weeks ago I was delayed to Aug-Sep and kind of gave up and bought new tires for my current one. Not sure I even want this anymore...

    The front fell off? That's not very typical.

    Tesla made my car slower after they repaired it

    Do you still have Ludicrous mode or is it now insane mode?

    I just spoke with a rep and the August limitation still applies. I would be subject to the current price book. I even asked them to revert my order to the payment method step and they obliged. The edit design button is not there. I tried going to the URL manually (tesla ...

    The Plaid was 120k, it's now 136k.
  22. BPeter

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I'd only go for a Plaid if it's very new, has the new lights, and at 120k. I don't think I'll find that anywhere.

    Third party dealers?

    There are only 7 Plaids in inventory in the whole country though.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    The price book at the time of my order unfortunately had the Plaid already at $130k. The Plaid jumped to $130k and then shortly after the LR jumped to $85k which is when I ordered. I have asked my rep and they said I would get current pricing ($136k) if I switched trims. Someone had said...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I want to upgrade to Plaid, but my order is $15k below current MSRP and they won't let me switch to Plaid and retain the same $15k below MSRP. It's just not worth it to switch to Plaid at the current price. I may just take delivery of the LR and flip it.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Oof. This morning I moved from April-May EDD (which was getting pushed out 1 week at a time) to June-July. Starting to lose excitement, and with spring here I've been really hammering my P100D. Not sure I want to downgrade the acceleration to the new LR anymore.

    Performance of Refreshed MSLR vs. others

    Alright, thanks. Third party hitches have existed for the S for a very long time I thought you meant something official. I'll probably install one of these when I get mine.
  30. BPeter

    Performance of Refreshed MSLR vs. others

    There is an official hitch for the S? I know there is a hitch cover but I don't see any hitch in the EPC yet. Are you using a third party hitch?

    Performance of Refreshed MSLR vs. others

    So in your experience, the LR doesn't immediately punch when you floor the pedal?

    Performance of Refreshed MSLR vs. others

    How is the throttle response between the two cars? Every non-performance Tesla I've driven feels like it has artificial throttle lag compared to my P100D. Does that exist in the refresh LR?

    What is Model S BLM?

    Maybe the color? Black metallic?

    Flip it to a local dealer. MX are still priced way over MSRP.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    The estimated date on a new LR is probably just a lie. Weren't they saying March EDD for an order in January 2021?
  36. BPeter

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Interesting. A recent Munro video mentioned those accelerometers. I don't think that mentioned that were used for ANC, maybe they didn't know. Wouldn't actual microphones work better for noise cancellation?

    The biggest benefit of refresh 1.0 is the radar. Better AP and higher top speed on AP.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Right, the amount goes towards the "Total Cost of Vehicle", but "Total Cost of Vehicle" includes the fee.
  40. BPeter

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Yes, because it is a payment that was already made. But it is included in the total vehicle price (1. A.). Tesla has become more transparent on the order page on how this works, but I'm pretty sure when I ordered my car, the order fee and the destination and documentation fee were hidden, you...
  41. BPeter

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    No, it is not. It's another fee, just like the $1,200 destination & documentation fee.
  42. BPeter

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Yeah, I'm wondering about this, too. The refresh was a +$10K to the price and they didn't honor prices. My order is now +$15K and earlier orders are +$20K.

    Hey, 2016 was pretty crazy, too. First the facelift that retained AP1, then there was AP2.0, and then the 100kWh pack. Those are all pretty major upgrades.

    Potential new cameras. Other rumors on reddit also mention a potential bumper-mounted camera to provide 360-cam. Would be very nice and long overdue.

    That's probably just manufacturing tolerance. The mechanism is still in place, but screws are tightened so that it doesn't move. Source: Munro Live

    LR or Plaid, which holds its value best?

    Base model almost always holds value better than higher trims and options. The Plaid isn't a limited run vehicle so it will probably depreciate much faster than the LR. Go compare the current value of a 100D and P100D originally sold at the same time to their sale price.
