    Surprise Check from Tesla

    I asked Tesla why I got this check and they said: "Great question! This is a refund for your registration. When you pick up a new Tesla you pay for a full year of registration but, based on when your birthday is, your car will end up only being registered by Tesla for a few months before you...

    Surprise Check from Tesla

    I just got a check from Tesla as well. for $142.46 - I wish Tesla would have included a simple cover letter because I am very confused by it. I am guessing it's just some sort of accounting mistake that they are making right. It has my registration number for my Model Y delivery on March 21 in GA

    Ordered MYP and am looking for options of 19" wheels that clear the bigger brakes.

    I got the 19x9.5" wheels. Mainly because I was told that's what was needed for the performance. I don't know if the 8.5s fit or not.

    Ordered MYP and am looking for options of 19" wheels that clear the bigger brakes.

    Yes. I put the aero covers on shortly after and that is going to be my default state for efficiency. I haven't done any measurements or anything and have not taken a long road trip yet, but I definitely get way more range for the same charge than my old P85- but that's not saying much.

    Tesla trip not working

    OK. After messing with it for some time, I finally figured out the problem. The interface expects you to pick an address from the drop down each time! So if you cut & paste addresses and don't select one from dropdown it doesn't work (even for valid addresses) NOT obvious at all! Basic usability...

    Tesla trip not working

    I cannot get tesla.com/trips to work at all. I enter the two locations and the GET ROUTE button always stays disabled and will not enable. Tried multiple browsers, clearing cookies, incognito mode. Nothing works! Very annoying.

    21” Uberturbine Wheels With OEM Pirelli Pzero Tires - Mint condition

    I did make my own post as well here: For Sale: 21" Uberturbine Wheels for PYD Atlanta/Alpharetta GA $4200 Yeah I was naive about the price at first. I guess it was just wishful thinking. I also dropped the price to $2,940 Anything much below and I'll probably just hang on to them for summer /...

    For Sale: 21" Uberturbine Wheels for PYD Atlanta/Alpharetta GA $4200

    Price drop to $2,942 - Anything much lower and I'll probably just hang on to them as spare / fun tires for summer. It's a shame Tesla forces these on MYP owners now. There used to be a choice. These must be really high margin items for them.

    FS: 2021 MYP Uberturbines 21" w/ Pirelli P-Zero and TPMS

    Wow! I wish Tesla would stop forcing the Performance wheels on you only for MYP. They used to give you a choice. I've got a set for sale and will likely hang on to them myself as spare wheels for anything under about ~3000

    21” Uberturbine Wheels With OEM Pirelli Pzero Tires - Mint condition

    I wanted 19s that were efficient and had an aero option. I could not buy the Gemini Wheels from Tesla so I did some research and found the Fast EV, EV01+ which are nearly identical in performance characteristics and IMHO look a bit nicer. I bought mine from here: FastEV EV01(+) Wheels for Tesla...

    21” Uberturbine Wheels With OEM Pirelli Pzero Tires - Mint condition

    I've got a full set of 21" Ubertubine wheels that just came off my brand new MYP with only 72 miles on them. Brand new, no nicks, rash or any damage whatsoever, with original OEM tires and TPMS sensors included. hoping to get $4200. Local pick up in Alpharetta / Atlanta area.

    Ordered MYP and am looking for options of 19" wheels that clear the bigger brakes.

    Ah OK. That makes sense. So maybe the Gemini with summer wheels are supported? Also you can configure the Geminis in the settings. At any rate, I'm really happy with the EV01+ wheels I got. And I don't intend taking this thing to max speed! The wheels are fairly similar to the Geminis but look a...

    Beware ordering wheels from Aftermarket EV

    UPDATE: My wheels came today. Everything looks great and still on time before my delivery and installation (tomorrow.) So I went through some grief for no reason and it was only one day later than originally estimated.

    Beware ordering wheels from Aftermarket EV

    Fair enough. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt as they did say wheels should arrive by this Sat. I did get an update today that they are tracking one day late as they are waiting on a big shipment to come in and it was expected to come yesterday and still has not arrived. I was left with...

    Ordered MYP and am looking for options of 19" wheels that clear the bigger brakes.

    I don't understand why Tesla says the Gemini wheels are not compatible with the MYP and won't even let you buy them on tesla.com It seems like there is no officially sanctioned wheel for winter / snow on the MYP at all.

    Supercharger - Greenville, SC

    Well I made it from Atlanta to Charlotte and back without any intervening charge (in my P85.) On the way there the weather was perfect and it was no sweat at all - I started out going 63mph because I wasn't sure - when I was nearly halfway there it was clear I would make it quite easily - so I...

    Supercharger - Greenville, SC

    Thanks for the tip. I think I am going to try and drive straight through (it's 235 miles from my start position to the Charlotte Supercharger) I'll simply slow down a lot if it looks like it's getting iffy... Should be OK.

    Supercharger - Greenville, SC

    Yes I have an 85. I'm planning to do a range charge. Since rated miles is 265 I should be able to make it. I'll start out at 65mph and I can always slow down later if I need to. Should be able to make it at 65 if the weather is nice... As a backup I could stop somewhere near Greenville and...

    Supercharger - Greenville, SC

    Yes it's really disappointing. I'm planning a spring break trip from Atlanta to D.C. and this is the only major gap. Should be doable from ATL -> Charlotte if I keep my speed low enough but sure wish I had the safety blanket of a Greenville Supercharger. I contacted Tesla about it recently and...

    Really hot for the rear facing seats

    Tesla service did promise me that the Tesla engineers were working on a *real* solution, but that was ~21 months ago, and I still haven't seen or heard of any better solution, so I'm not holding my breath ... I really only use the seats in the winter and even then, not very often. The kids...

    Expectations: 2014 Model S P110+ SuperSport

    The P85 can already accelerate faster than the tires can handle, even with traction control on. With a full out burst of acceleration, the wheels squeak and there is even a little side to side motion. That's one reason I want AWD - twice as much rubber pulling the road! Also improved safety in...
