    2021 MYP Uberturbine 21" to 20" Aftermarket Wheels... 30 pound weight savings

    After 15 months and 23000 miles on my '21 MYP I decided to downsize from factory 21" to aftermarket 20" wheels. On the Pirelli Pzero, the front tires had 50% tread, and rear tires had 25% tread, so plenty of life remaining. The handling for my MYP on 21" always surprises me, I'd get myself...

    DIY paint chip repair step by step

    Not a detailer and this is my first time trying it, comments welcome but please don't roast me :) Had 5 rather noticeable rock chips on the front right fender, was able to get it 90-95% fixed going the DYI way. All of the materials I was able to source on Amazon. Over all took 2-3 days, mainly...

    Double pane windows, front/back/both windows?

    My MY21 (71xxx) came with dual pane windows, but interestingly enough, 3 months after delivery I noticed it was just on the front windows. The rear windows are single pane. Does anyone know if they intended on releasing this for both front and rear, or just front windows?

    Leasing "no buy out" Option and trading up (to another Tesla)

    Just curious and for those who leased - with the existence of the "no buy out option" how does Tesla treat/handle situations where you might want to trade up to a newer tesla? There is very little information on how these things are calculated... With a traditional lease the bank will have a...

    New Vehicle Warranty - Exact expiration date/mileage?

    So the SC is trying to charge for a repair that I thought would have been covered by warranty. For most of us who purchased "new", the car is going to have a few dozen miles on it, or more if purchasing test driven vehicle, and the issue is whether the warranty expires precisely at 50,000...

    $9.99 DIY Windshield Repair

    Thought I'd share this to the community as I think windshield damage is fairly high on the annoyance as well as cost list. Long story short, the spring on my windshield wiper arm popped out while I was changing wipers about 6 months ago. Fortunately still structurally sound as it didn't spread...

    Let's not do this in a Model 3 (or any car for that matter)

    Tesla should disable charging for this car lol... In Anaheim this weekend. C. Balboa on Instagram: “The Tesla that swang it last night must have been the wildest *sugar* I’ve seen in a while #cdk1year #cdk #goodtimesbadfriends #tesla #swingit…”

    P85D nearing end of lease and, projected value at 100k miles?

    Does anyone have any estimate or prior data of how much the vehicle would be worth, at year 6 with around 100k miles? I've got a 2014 P85D with 35k miles, will probably reach 40k miles at end of lease. Lease end price is $55k , including extended warranty and tax, it'd be $65k. Fast forward 3...

    Amazon cabin air filter

    Decided to do a quick maintenance item for the car... I've ran exactly 30,000 miles on the original cabin air filter (yes, a little bad) and found one available on Amazon Prime for $20. 2 days and 5 minutes (installation time lol) later, I've got a new filter installed. Below is the comparison...

    Autopilot / tacc freaks out at the same exact spot regardless of condition

    So this is a bit weird, but I noticed that without fail, the tacc/autopilot always applies the brakes as it approaches a certain spot on the fwy. No matter if it's day time, night time, clear day, cloudy day, cars or no cars, it always releases the accelerator and begin full regen braking...

    Tesla to J1772 Adapter?

    This might be in the wrong forum (if so I apologize in advance). I've got two EV'a (P85D/500e). My garage is setup for 220V 30A charging for the Model S, but, for the 500e, it didn't make sense to put down $1k for a car that sees 3000-5000 miles a year... So I'm stuck with the 3 miles/hr...

    California enthusiasts... Tesla friendly insurance companies/premiums?

    So my insurance pulled a fast one on me, sent me a renewal for 2016 with a 50% increase even though I (mid 30's) with clean record and maintain good credit. After doing some shopping around, I was able to find another carrier that gives me $2700 a year for 500k coverage on '14 P85D, '14 500e...

    P85D Picked up today!!!

    Finally!! Picked up the P85D from the delivery center today. The car is pretty mildly optioned (Metallic Gray with black NextGen seats, black alcantara, Air Suspension and Tech Package). Having gone thru 7 German cars in the last ten years, it was a big thing to jump into a P85D and the car...
