    Model S slipping back into Park while backing up?

    Thanks for the logical explanation. I suspect I am lifting up off the seat a bit as it's my habit to turn and put my arm out to the passenger seat to look over my right shoulder (Not yet learned to trust the backup camera). I do wear my seatbelt (thanks to everyone for their concern about my...

    Model S slipping back into Park while backing up?

    About 6 month old Model S (85D) Have had a few episodes where backing slowly out of parking place and and then car suddenly slips back into park (car stops with a bit of a jolt). The first time it scared the hell out of me as I thought I had hit something. Anyone else had this issue...

    Wait at Superchargers on thankgiving?

    Hi all: Relatively new (and very happy) 85D owner. Planning to drive up from NC to DC area on Thanksgiving AM with family. Not having road tripped in Tesla before, what are the chances of lines/crowds at the superchargers during a busy holdiay travel day? Either going up on Thursday or coming...

    New Owners: What was your last car? How much more was the MS than that car?

    Interesting thread. At this point every car I have ever purchased cost more than the one before. Not sure I can continue that rend after Telsa:) 1985 Toyota Celica (off the college!) 1996 Acura Integra (Celica still going strong after 11 years but was starting to have some more frequent issues)...

    My first real Tesla moment!

    Had the car for 4 days. Last night it is parked in the driveway (plugged into 110 outlet as I don't have the 240 installed yet). Pizza delivery guy pulls up into driveway and comes to the door. "What the hell is that car?!?"(handing me pizza). We proceed to stand in doorway for 20 minutes...

    Supercharger - Asheville, NC?

    Burlington SC to Asheville shows 188 miles on Google but realize that the last hour is substantially uphill (I am guessing would be borderline for a 70 but probaby doable in 85? Hard for me to believe they would put an SC both in Asheville and also in Hickory or Statesville?

    Finally ordered! Thanks to the all on the forum

    After a couple of months of obsessively researching, spending way too much time on this forum, and driving my wife crazy by talking about it constantly, I finally took the plunge! Great service from Raleigh store (thanks Hutch!) to help find me what I was looking for--85D in the old...

    Supercharger - Asheville, NC?

    Any intel on Asheville SC? For me this seems like a key missing piece to connect i40 (don't think Burlington to Knoxville is feasible) as well as facilitate a popular vacation/weekend getway. Someone at Tesla told me that they were starting construction in the whole foods parking lot in...

    Slightly different take on the 70D vs. 85D debate

    No sensible person would look at a car as an investment. I do think it's reasonable when forking out nearly 100K for something to at least consider how slowly (or rapidly) it will depreciate as a relevant variable to consider.

    No drawers or cabinets to store anything in? :smile:

    Question about alcantera on dash

    trying to figure out if this is now only with the premium interior or is this on all cars now? Like the power liftgate (although not nearly worth the price) and better quality leather/lighting, but have to say I am not crazy about the suede on the dash. Looks out of place to my eye and seems...

    Is there a way to estimate the date of production based on the VIN?

    Looking at CPO cars, just trying to guestimate how old they are (other than the year obviously)

    Slightly different take on the 70D vs. 85D debate

    Agree very hard to know the future for EV marketplace. Taking a quick look at current CPO prices for S60 compared to S85, it seems like the S60s are selling for 60-65 and the S85s are selling for mid 70's, so around a 10K-12K gap. Recognizing it is a larger gap in performance and range between...

    Regular 19's vs. Cyclones?

    Is there any difference beyond just looks? Like the look of the cyclones but no way can I justify 2500 just for slightly nicer looking rims (never been a "wheel guy")

    Slightly different take on the 70D vs. 85D debate

    I think one thing both the D and the 85 give you is future flexibility. Right now I live in NC-some snow but not terrible, and probably don't have a compelling case for the AWD in terms of winter weather. Similarly, we have reasonable SC coverage (espeically once Asheville opens) so the added...

    Slightly different take on the 70D vs. 85D debate

    As someone still grappling with this decision, the current value of the trade off seems pretty apparent--0.8 sec of 0-60 time + 30 miles of range for an extra 10K. Obviously, whether this is 'worth it' would depend on your driving habits, wants, priorities and needs. I wonder though about...

    Tesla Model S CPO Website - Now Live

    I would say trying to get an 85 of any sort for < 50K is going to be a very long wait. As far as I know the only cars < 50K that have come on the CPO market have been S60's.

    Tesla Model S CPO Website - Now Live

    I wonder what the scoop is on some of these CPO cars with almost no miles on them. There are probably 20-30 CPO cars on the consolidator with < 3000 miles on the clock. I guess people who just decide that an EV wasn't for them? Who trades in a car with 2000 miles on it?

    Tesla Model S CPO Website - Now Live

    Any speculation about when we will start seeing some D's in the CPO market? I know there have been a few P85D that pop up briefly but really interested in an 85D or 70D (still trying to decide whether to buy new or CPO). I am guessing once Model X comes out there may be a burst of trade in...

    CPO has created some real buying dilemmas

    New 70D vs. very gently used 2014 P85. Very close in price after tax credit for new (~80K each). AWD + new car smell + autopilot w 70D vs. perfomance boost + better range + frunk space w P85. I know I could go up to 85D and have best of both worlds--I could afford it but having trouble...

    Extra UMC vs. HPWC?

    All completely logical, but of course that line of sensible thinking would ruin my internal self justification for getting the HPWC:) Also, will be outdoor installation (on side of house), and the cleaner look of HPWC is likely to have higher WAF, which is the ultimate justification for anything.

    Extra UMC vs. HPWC?

    Thanks, appreciate the feedback. Now I can go back to worrying about more important things like whether the premium package is actually worth $3000 for the power lift gate (useful but $3000?) and some bits of chrome, LED, and leather accents (not very useful), and the related question as to...

    Extra UMC vs. HPWC?

    Considering how best to do my install for charging. It seems to me that if you are going to get a spare UMC (with the idea of leaving one plugged in at the house and keeping one in the car), it makes more sence to just gets the HPWC? For only $100 more you get a cooler looking installation that...

    UMC length--stretch the length of the car?

    PaulKVA--would love to see a pic of your set up, that would be really helpful. Thanks!

    UMC length--stretch the length of the car?

    So are you running the cord under the car (where the AC might drip on it)? I was just imaging running it along the ground on drivers side of car.

    UMC length--stretch the length of the car?

    Haven't bought car yet, just doing some planning. For a variety of reasons not worth going into, it would be much easier to have NEMA 14-50 outlet installed near driver side front of car rather than back where I park. Outlet would be approximatly even with the front of the car when parked...

    Model S Premium Center Console - Only in Black

    Great, thanks for the pics. This is exactly what I was looking for. Now just need to decide how much this would bug me.

    Model S Premium Center Console - Only in Black

    Hi. First post--great forum. Don't have car yet, just doing research and 'due diligence.' Has anyone installed the piano black in a car with the obeche wood but just left the console as is? I realize they don't match but seems like it is actually such a small area that has the piano black...
