    WTB P85D ludicrous

    Pull your panties from your crack. I was just wishing you luck in your endeavor and moving your thread up to the top. Again, best of luck finding another car like the one that you had and at the price point that you are looking at.

    WTB P85D ludicrous

    70-73K. Good luck with your efforts in finding a low mileage loaded P85DL with next generation seats in it for that kind of money.

    P85DL as a service loaner vehicle

    Good to know. I didn't expect that there would be a noticeable difference between the P85DL and the P90DL. It's posts like this that let me know that holding on to this car is a good move.

    Model S don't like big booty and I cannot lie

    I like Big Butts and I cannot Lie. In fact, I've gone so far as to name mine NikkI, after Nikki Minaj. Because my car is black and has a huge a$$. The Internet Goes Wild Over Nicki Minaj's Butt-Centric 'Anaconda' Video - CraveOnline I'm all about that bass. No treble.:D

    Is the Ludicrous upgrade still available for P85D?

    I agree that if he sells, he definitely won't get his $5K back. But like you say, the personal enjoyment and utility that he gets out of that $5K is a bargain, considering that it originally was offered as a $7500.00 upgrade before it dropped to $5K, and that it is/or was a $10K upgrade on a...

    Is the Ludicrous upgrade still available for P85D?

    My experience as well. All of the information in the following link is significant. However the 60-90 results as well as the 1/8 mile trap speeds, are especially telling in the below link. Performance of P85D with Ludicrous upgrade review And I've also thought about following your lead in...

    Home charging for a 2015 P85D with "dual chargers"?

    Looking at the cost difference that you cite above, it appears that it would be hard to justify the HPWC. However one advantage that your dual on board chargers allow you is the potential for faster destination charging. Destination Charging | Tesla

    That Motor Trend 1 foot rollout

    "Mutually beneficial", is a bit misleading in that yes, each party will receive some measure of "benefit" in a quick settlement. But is the "quick settlement" fair and equitable to both parties as a result of having been "quick"? A "quick settlement" may work to the benefit of one party...

    That Motor Trend 1 foot rollout

    You must have never dealt with a nuisance lawsuit. A quick and above all else, relatively inexpensive solution to making something or someone go away, is often times a quite favorable option. It must have meant something to Tesla. For the type of money being discussed here, coupled with...

    That Motor Trend 1 foot rollout

    That part in bold above, is what tells me the most. "You can take it now, or possibly leave it"; was what it effectively came down to.

    That Motor Trend 1 foot rollout

    Tesla settled with 126 owners for approximately $7,700.00 each. That would be the equivalent of the cost of a good wheel and tire package, and a few shirts, jackets and other paraphernalia from off of their website. For some real perspective, that sum wouldn't even cover the retail purchase...

    Ludicrous Retrofit No Longer Available???

    On the CPO site? Yep. And I think that's the reason why it's disappeared and seems to have been removed from cars that may have had it before they became CPO cars.

    Ludicrous Retrofit No Longer Available???

    Well we've gotten over 200 views of this thread and no one can tell us otherwise. All of the CPO inventory for P85D and P90D cars ar sans Ludicrous. The only way that you can get Ludicrous right now is if you buy a P100D or if you go through the used market outside Tesla's CPO offerings. At...

    It appears, at least as near as I can tell, that the Ludicrous retrofit is no longer available for the Model S P85D and Model S P90D. Is this the case?

    What is P85D Ludicrous upgrade worth on resale ?

    First things first. Good luck with the repairs. Ludicrous' greatest practical benefit is in its highway passing capability. It's a night and day difference vs Insane. So if that helps you any, well then great. But back to the resale. In a nutshell, don't spend the $5k expecting much, if...

    What is P85D Ludicrous upgrade worth on resale ?

    Difficult if not impossible to say. As far as I know, all CPO P85D cars come without Ludicrous, so in a private sale of your car, it might be more attractive to a prospective buyer if it has Ludicrous. However depending on how long you keep the car, you could wind up getting the full $5K worth...

    I could be wrong, but I think P90Ds too.

    P85D Ludicrous upgrade??

    Bragging rights are fleeting. Especially with a car like the Tesla. So if you're upgrading solely for bragging rights, well then it's wasted money if not right off the bat, well then soon off the bat. I thought about trading up to another Ludicrous car, but have decided against it as I...

    P85+ loaner vs 85D

    I also had the chance to drive a P85+ loaner while my Ludicrous upgrade was being done on my P85D which has air suspension and 19s. I was extremely impressed with the P85+. So much to the point that I was looking into purchasing a CPO P85+ after the experience.

    Dodge Demon 1/4mi 9.6 @ 140 - 0-60 2.3sec

    The drag radials are street legal, early in the thread some said that the car was not on street legal tires. A roll cage in a street car where you're not wearing a helmet, could be downright dangerous. This is probably the reason why they didn't put a roll cage in it. It would have met the...

    I agree with much of your prior post, And we both know that with regard to "needing" Ludicrous to pass safely, nobody said anything of the sort. But short answer, Ludicrous has been well worth it for me and has made my vehicle much more enjoyable, and yes, while no longer top dog, and...

    :D OK, I guess you'd know. With the windows tinted, it's impossible for an observer to tell whether or not the passenger and rear seats have been removed. Usually in his videos, he shows at least one camera angle coming from the passenger side of the car. But it is impossible to look at that...

    I've read all of the comments following the YouTube video. He makes no mention of, nor does he alludes to, any other weight reduction aside from the frunk removal for the purposes of this 10.44 pass. He does however state that further weight reduction efforts aside from the current frunk...

    Awesome. It's clear that weight reduction and in the right place, made a big difference here.

    They're saying SAE instead of "horsepower motor power" clearly to prevent any further confusion between the two as was what happened before when people didn't read closely enough.

    And that came pimarily from in here. The real simple comeback for Tesla to where it appears that your argument is leading, is this: 1. The V1 car will actually do 10.9, and that's what we shipped to MT. That out of a small handful of owners on TMC who tried, none reported having reached...

    Well, if you feel that way, then clearly the next move is yours. Based upon how things went with many of us springing for the Ludicrous upgrade in the P85D after the big horsepower brouhaha in here, it will be interesting to see what that next move is.

    I've heard this argument before and it doesn't hold water. It doesn't matter what one thinks. It only matters what one can prove. Good luck trying to prove that and make that stick in terms of culpability on Tesla's part. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that Tesla will say; "we...
