    Illinois rebate

    This is getting annoying. I applied for mine July / August last year ... got a letter back Jan 15 claiming I had not provided the ENTIRE VIN, even though the ENTIRE VIN was on other sheets ... faxed them the inked in VIN on page 1 on Jan 16. Still heard nothing 6 weeks later.

    First Supercharger-Only Coast to Coast Road Trip in a Tesla Model S 60

    Do you expect to be, and if so when, at the Rockford or Highland Park superchargers. Any idea yet?

    Aurora Supercharger added

    It is free to use like any other. I stopped by there for lunch today as I was working nearby. They had to dig a trench at least 30 feet from the farthest charger to the "green" transformer. No wires visible where the connection is made. No idea what concrete excavation work costs but I...

    California "Tesla" License plates set

    If it is for two pieces of metal. It is common in Europe to pay this price for "real" vanity plates. You buy the vehicle with the plates on, and transfer them. If you saw that on a UK car, you would know that 1) they paid more for the plate than the car (like JAG 1) 2) doubt that it...

    Aurora Supercharger added

    One of our members went by there today ... it is a TEMPORARY PORTABLE Supercharger. Apparently a 3 month test. I am told if it "works out" they'll move it a few feet, if not ... who knows?

    Aurora Supercharger added

    Didn't see this one coming ... but they just added 4 stalls to the Two Brothers Brewing Company in Aurora, IL. The owners, I am told, both own Red Signature Model S. Just 75 miles from Rockford, 53 from Highland Park. Very convenient for private charging! My guess is an arrangement...

    What is your favorite Model S color?

    I still prefer my original black car all dressed up ready to go to the ball in stunning "Faux Sig Red" wrap. Not. That only lasted 5 days before removal. :( The locals thought it was primer paint. My fave is Signature red and I thought I was going to fool everyone! :)

    Wisconsin Supercharger Discussion & Tracking

    Highland Park is hardly a side trip ... 5 minutes to get to the location. Most SC's, by your definition, are side trips. Adding one in half way between Milwaukee and Green Bay we much more sense at this stage in the game ... and besides the Door County visitors bureau is adding charging...

    Air Suspension no longer lowers at highway speeds (FW update v5.8)

    I'd hardly call the Supercharger rollout a missed deadline?

    Anyone know what the original is? As in what is the German > English translation? And, is this an original movie it's borrowed from?

    @TeslaRoadTrip 2014 (Feb 15-17, 2014) - Dinner Event Signup & Details Available!

    I am one of three cars planning to attend this event from Illinois. I am getting very concerned about the weather ... especially the last 100 miles of 650. Plan to stay in Somerset Friday; question is ... will the roads be in decent enough condition to get to DC? Those coming in from...

    Sometimes it hard to keep the faith: repeated Supercharging failure and bad service

    May I suggest, guys, that whenever posting someones email address at corporate, we do not print it literally ... spam bots will pick this up and he'll be inundated with SPAM!!!! I have replaced it in the quote as an example. Mods please fix hopefully before G00gle picks up on it.

    East Greenwich RI (not exclusive to Teslas)

    I think, hope, a lot of this will change when they, Tesla, retrofits the solar canopies. And with canopies they can provide some kind of "barrier"?

    Conn non owner but interested

    CD / DVD? Model S is the future ... They belong in the past. Instead there are slots for USB drives. If lack of DVD/CD is a deal breaker, then Model S is not your car?

    503's from all threads

    Power failure in a data center? Heads can roll for something like that. :) Last time I saw that happen was at a huge DC in the UK; down for 30 minutes and when everything did come back up, many servers had to have their power supplies replaced due to trauma. But if I may ask ... if a power...

    Speculation: Elon to meet crew from rally in New York???

    Was giving this a little thought ... Elon has spoken in the past week in various locales in Europe. Would it not make sense for him to wind his way to Paris or London and fly back to New York to welcome the crew of the Cross Country Rallye in NY? Maybe a box for the Superbowl? And have...

    I wasn't arguing any of your points ... Merely stated that unless we'd gotten a tweet confirming next stop is "X", I'd not go out my way to meet them somewhere "logical". Feel sorry for you and your posse! :(

    Catch Tesla LA-NY Trip Team

    Left Highland Park, and on their way. Have to give them / drivers and David MAJOR credit ... I drove towards Highland Park ... 20 miles ... the roads have not been plowed ... 3-4 inches and people driving 70, fishtailing near me so I simply said, as much as I am "into" Tesla , this is simply...

    Tesla Cross-Country Trip

    So, my friend Aphysician, you still want me in Rockford in my pajamas at 6am? :) They're saying 4" to 6" accumulation tomorrow. Starting 3am. But I will put up a road block; all lanes, here in Schaumburg ... pretend the toll booths are not working and get their autographs? 8:30am ok?

    Catch Tesla LA-NY Trip Team

    Only way I would get involved is IF they tweeted leaving Madison, or anywhere WI, and headed for Rockford. And, as you mention, the weather forecast for here Fri / Sat is NOT good. 3-5 inches. While they navigated CO with this white rubbish, I am not so keen ... no snow tyres and all. As...

    Elon in Munich on Jan 30, 2014

    LA to NY Kick-off Rally

    Ok, think back to 1969. And the awful remake 2003. The Italian Job. Why didn't they use 3 Model S, one red, white and blue? And make the American Job? Who needs a heist? Or is not using gas the "heist"? :)

    LA to NY Kick-off Rally

    S'pose the goal here is to prove the point that even if an ICE cannot manage it, an EV can? At any expense? Wonder if the drivers had to sign a waiver? :) Love the car decals! Not to start a heated debate, but I wondered how smart it was that the "Daddy-daughter" team was to do what they...

    Charging in Cranberry Twshp, PA. Hotel Charging?

    To be exact, I called every hotel within a 5 mile radius of 76/79. Hyatt, Residence Inn, Red Roof, Four Points, Marriott. Four Points did say they had "ordered something" but when probed for details I was cut off and then ended in a phone menu loop. Once SC has arrived all this will be...

    Charging in Cranberry Twshp, PA. Hotel Charging?

    I am likely driving from Chicago to the All superchargers lead to DC event. Feb 15? I called many hotels today in the Pittsburgh area and asked about charging. 100% no. Yes there's the Eaton facility and who knows when we'd get the Chademo adapter - that would be even nicer. Otherwise ...
