    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2013

    Nicely put. I lost over $100k today, but glad to be driving this car, and I see nothing but great things ahead. "It's only money" #FirstWorldProblems

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2013

    Agreed, $194.50 after ER. TSLA has yet to have a blow-off top, and I see a move over $200, selling back to $150's. I think now is the time that this happens. Bets placed, will see what happens. Long NOV $180

    40 K's Upgrade to 60?

    BUMP Anyone upgrade yet? I'm waiting for a WI and MI supercharger to pull the trigger. Hopefully the run another "special" for discounted pricing.

    Frunk, slight dent

    I noticed today that my Frunk has a slight dent where I usually do the second tap to latch it. Anyone else? I've been super careful because it does feel a bit flimsy.

    Battery Swap

    If they give the 85k (which is likely), you must return the battery, or they will charge you the difference. That being said, as a 40k owner...I will most likely NOT upgrade since the cost of the swap is minor, compared to the $15k or so upgrade fee w/super charging. I would only take about...

    Battery Swap

    Question: If you do a battery swap, what battery will you be getting? 40k = 40k Battery 60k = 60k Battery 85k = 85k Battery Or does everyone get the 85k ?

    40K Owners, are you upgrading?

    The "discount" ends on 6/30. Will you be upgrading? Waiting/hoping for a better discount? No upgrade? I'm still on the fence, but may pull the trigger.

    40 K's Upgrade to 60?

    After driving my 40 for about a month now, I don't think the $10k is worth it for the additional mileage. I also agree that down the line, they will cut the price lower and lower. It's free money to them at this point. The current "sale" is to juice their #'s. And BTW, I think they'll kill it...

    Nema 6-20

    Thanks guys, I used the following link: http://cosmacelf.net/Home%20Made%20Adapters.pdf , and had my warehouse guy make it for me. Hope it works. I'll remember to dial down the Amperage to 16.

    Nema 6-20

    Reviving this old thread. I'm going to a hotel next week and would like to plug into the AC outlet (NEMA 6-20 240V, 20A). What is the easiest way to do this? Is there nothing "off the shelf" I can purchase to use as an adapter?

    40 K's Upgrade to 60?

    Agreed, $11k isn't really worth the extra few miles. I will be taking a 120+ mile trip soon, and I will report the details. Right now my usage is crazy as I am driving it as I stole the car - way too fun

    40 K's Upgrade to 60?

    Now that we've had our 40's for a few days, do you plan on forking over the $12,500 for the extended range and super charger access? I'm thinking about it!

    Alloy Gators Rim Protection (Pics and info)

    I called the Chicago Service Center, and they said that they do not install 3rd party items....any ideas on where to get this done in Chicago?

    Unlocking the Doors from inside

    Just rec'd the car yesterday, and It's amazing. Few "New Driver" questions: How do I unlock the doors when I'm inside the car? I know I can do this via the touch screen, but is there another way? Today, I scheduled the software updated after I plugged in at Chargepoint, only for the charge...

    40 kWh Delivery Timing

    Picked up my 40 this AM...amazeballs. Super happy with the car. Had 135 on it when picked up, 111 left after going to work (about 13 miles real world) and abused the car many times. Happy with the range!

    Has anyone had a chance to test the range on the 40 yet? I will be getting mine on Weds, and will try to test this coming long weekend.

    Range Charge Daily due to New Warranty announcement?

    Thank you all for your comments on this thread The new announcement makes me feel a bit more comfortable range charging once a month (CHI to WI, 120miles), as I have a 60 (software limited to 40). I would never think of range charging daily!

    First 60kWH delivery notice or email - who will it be?

    Sorry to hear about your experience MnLevin. I too am awaiting my software limited 60kWH, and expect delivery by end of May or early June. I reserved almost a year ago. Almost sick of hearing, "So when is that car coming" every weekend from friends and family. This is what happens to early...

    40 kWh Delivery Timing

    Hoping to get a delivery button this week! - - - Updated - - - I feel like TSLA should bang out all the software limited 60's (aka 40's) in a week, week.5. C'mon already! People who have ordered the 60's have been getting them within 2 months. Are they still testing the software?

    First 40kWH delivery notice or email - who will it be?

    End of May was my delivery date based on my Res, which is in the 10,400's (July 2012) = Almost 1 yr!! :smile:

    Wrapping the Car

    Has anyone does this (besides Dr.Taras and the Matte Green)? I'm going in for an appt next week to pick out some options. Was just wondering if anyone changed their OEM color into something else, and would love to see pics!

    40kwh Model S canceled

    I personally would not upgrade past 1-2 years, unless Tesla discounted the upgrade yearly. Us 40k folks can range charge as much as we want with out any large consequence (from what I gather on the forum). No need to spend another 11k after a few years. Might as well sell the 40 and buy a...

    40 Kwh EPA

    I agree, so either they are bound by law to test the EPA for the 40's (don't know if this is the case), or they just bypass that, claim the 160 miles, and allow the 40's to "secretly" gain more KwH (42-44kwh) to ensure they get the 160 rated. Thoughts?

    40 Kwh EPA

    Will they ever test the 40K's EPA range? Don't they have to even if they are giving us the 60K, limiting us to a 40K battery? I presume they need to do this before starting deliveries.

    Tesla to make "exciting announcement on Thursday" (correction Tuesday)

    Maybe GenIII announcement? Supercharging partnership with Big Box/McD? Loan repaid?
