    Louver question

    No answer for you, but curious how you access that information (louvers settings)?

    Finally took a big gulp out of the Kool Aid

    In defense of the S (also having come from an S4 (mine had the V8) ) the S4 is quite a bit smaller, so I would expect it to feel a good bit more nimble than the S.

    2021 Refreshed Model S - steering wheel yolk material peeling off?

    Especially as much beef as we eat, probably have a lot of cowhide as a byproduct, use it or throw it away...

    The Last S40?

    Perhaps the fact that you didn't unlock the 60 resulted in the 40 lasting much longer!

    New style Door handle broke after 3 months, Seems to be a calibration issue?

    Moral of the story, don't pressure wash the door handles!

    Well it's a wrap, but I think you could find a similar paint

    Three out of four 21" turbine rims cracked within a couple of months

    I specifically got 19's instead of 21's (even though the 21's look better) because of this issue

    New Front End Look for her 2015 S model.

    When I wrapped my 2015, I wrapped the nosecone too, hard to tell in this picture as the green is so dark it almost appears black in some lighting.

    10+ minutes to start my "old" tesla is just an inconvenience b/c I chose to do the eMMC recall and install firmware updates

    I had several errors on my 2015 P85D after eMMC replacement. Had to bring the car back in. They replaced the eMMC board (apparently the one they put in was bad). All is fine now. Overall I've had relatively few problems w/ my car (~60K mi) and when I have had problems, I have had good...

    I've been very happy with my 19" TSportline TSS Wheels, the look of arachnids w/out 21".

    2015 Model S Voice Command Button

    Have your rebooted the displays (AKA have you tried turning it off and on again)? The two displays boot separately, one by pressing and holding both scroll wheels on the steering wheel, the other by pressing and holding the upper buttons on the wheel.

    Front brakes shaking on CPO Model S 19K

    I think this can happen even on rotors that are otherwise in good shape. If the rotors got hot due to heavy use, then drove through some water, viola! warped rotors.

    Model S Used Price Check

    Comparing what you got for your car a year ago isn't a fair comparison for today's prices....

    Wrap on the nosecone?

    Finished! Went pretty well, my biggest problem being contamination (dust) getting under the wrap. Got better as it went and still have a good bit of wrap for fixing any issues that might arise. All in all I'm quite pleased!

    Magically disappearing 4 year/ 50k Used S Warranty

    This is somewhat alarming... I also purchased a MS from Tesla in early 2019. Came w/ 4-year 50K miles warranty, website now shows warranty expired. I do have a printout of the original sales page, showing the 4-year 50K warranty, hopefully that will be helpful in sorting this out.

    Exterior trim on 2015 MS

    I'm about to attempt wrapping my 2015 P85D and I was wondering if anyone knows about removing the exterior chrome trim. If it's easy to remove / put back I'd likely do it to make for a cleaner wrap. But I don't want to just go prying on it to find out. Anyone with experience removing and...

    How much was the additional cost for the metallic green paint?

    I'm about to attempt wrapping my 2015 P85D in a dark metallic green. Really excited as it's always been my fav color. Here's a picture of a newer MS done in exactly the wrap I bought:

    Wrap on the nosecone?

    I am planning on trying to wrap my 2015 MS... I think I recall that the radar system on the pre-facelift cars is located behind the nosecone. Does anyone know if putting wrap on the nosecone cover would impair the functionality of the radar? The wrap I'm going to use is KPMF Gloss Green...

    Need help deciding: 2016 MS 70 or 2020 M3 SR+?

    The S is much larger than the 3, and a hatchback. For me, those were the factors that led me to my S, ymmv.

    New Model S

    One other thing to consider, anytime something really new is introduced (such as new batteries) it is sometimes wise not to be on the bleeding edge. I generally like to wait a couple years to let them iron out any quirks.

    how did model S bahave during extreme heat in NW US and SW Canada ?

    My car was in WA state, and unfortunately parked outside (normally garaged). I was in the midwest on a trip. Kept checking in on the cars interior temps, which rose to over 115 multiple times. It was plugged in so I remotely activated the AC and kept the car cool :cool:.

    what does it mean tesla warning power braking assist reduced

    Power breaking or regenerative breaking? If the latter, then when the battery is cold, the maximum recharge rate (via regen) is reduced to protect the battery

    Does Model S work as family car?

    if you think Model S will serve us well as a family car? For Sure. How is the comfort on a long trips? I have found it to be very good, I think the concept of being forced to take a stroll every few hours is actually very helpful for avoiding fatigue. What about the backseats, are they comfy...

    Need advice on buying a high mileage 2017 Model S75

    One has to wonder if the items listed as 'new' replacements were actually refurbished / used parts. If so, it may not be as reliable as it might seem.

    Tesla online used car purchase MAJOR ISSUES

    So my question to the OP is: was the ticking of all your boxes in essence a way better deal then the other similar models? If so, should you really be surprised that it doesn't end up being as nice as the similarly spec'd cars that were more expensive? If it seems too good to be true.....?

    19" Slipstream Gray - Where?

    The TSportline are OEM in dimensions, including the center caps, so any OEM caps will fit.
