    7 years later what is your 100% on your 85kWh battery?

    2013 P85 87,000 miles. 100% is 235. A little disappointed in range drop, and still a bit bitter that I’ve never been able to achieve the advertised rated range even under ideal driving conditions.

    Getting my P3D in two weeks, and need to line up some detailers to get her looking the way I want. Does anyone have any recommendations in Cincinnati? I'm looking to get the following done: - Windows Tinted - Chrome Delete - Front Bumper PPF - Ceramic Coat Thanks, Dave

    Red not the best color for Model 3?

    I really like this look. Do you mind sharing the color and type of wrap used for the chrome delete? Also your window tint and wheel choices? Thanks!!

    Vendor Instructions for facelift bumper/fascia installation on nosecone Model S

    Coming to the party late... I need some work to my old 2012 P85 bumper and was thinking of refreshing with the new style. Am I to understand that this is not recommended, or is there a parts list / guide I could forward to my body shop?

    Front Bumper Retrofit - Guide / Parts List?

    Sorry if this is listed elsewhere, I attempted a search but couldn't find anything definitive. I hit some road debris in my 2012 P85 and it will require some body work to the front end. Since the bumper will be off, I figure this would be a good opportunity to retrofit to the new bumper style...

    Does anyone know who's paying for this? Is this charity by Tesla? Paid for by the hospitals, government, or electric companies?

    Proactive Contactor Replacement

    Update: Today was warm and I had no regen limiting at all, so that theory is out.

    Proactive Contactor Replacement

    My regen has also been limited the past couple weeks. I figured it was just the cold, but did think it was weird that it wasn't going away even after a long drive. Sure enough, the service center called me to get the power switch replaced as well. I'm taking her in next week and will let...

    "Power Switch and Power Supply" proactive replacement on D-pack?

    I just received a call to replace my power switch as well. I am VIN 32xx with a refurb B pack. Does anyone know what this power switch is? Where it is on the car, what its function is, etc?

    Supercharger - Lima, OH

    I used the Lima SC twice about three weeks ago. I can confirm that something funky is going on there. I had low power across all of the stalls I tried. This did not happen at the Dayton or Toledo chargers - something is definitely up with that site. I reported it to my service center, who I...

    Opening the doors and starting the car with a dead keyfob battery

    I thought I'd add that Tesla can unlock the doors remotely if you call them. Don't ask how I know this. :)

    Opening the doors and starting the car with a dead keyfob battery

    That's what I figured. Any other cars out there other than Tesla that require the 12V battery to open the doors?

    Opening the doors and starting the car with a dead keyfob battery

    Don't want to go off topic, but someone asked me the other day how I'd get in the car if the battery was dead (car battery, not FOB). I didn't know what to tell him! Do the door handles still pop out, or is there a manual way to get in the car?

    P85D wiper blades

    I bought the ICON's in July 2014 from Amazon, and they are also terrible now. Streaking like crazy. Not sure if they're just worn out already, but the car lived in the garage all winter and has not had much use at all. The wipers worked fine initially, but their quality and longevity don't...

    Brake and battery coolant fluid

    I'm thinking of getting Tesla to do just the brake fluid this year instead of the full inspection (I do my own tires, wiper blades, etc). Has anyone else done this? Do you know what they charge?

    110/120V Charging - some questions

    Does anyone have any data on how fast you charge at 120V in freezing temperatures? I have a trip planned for next week, and I need to charge on 120V outside when the temperatures will be 10-15 degrees F overnight. I will have access to a 120V plug, but need to know if I'm going to be able to...

    Decreasing rated range.

    Supercharger - Grove City, OH

    Okay thanks. Was expecting a 30 minute charge, but with the cold soak, it took about that long to get up to full speed.

    I-75 this year if you believe their map timeline - which I dont. There was supposed to be one this year and it never happened.

    Supercharger - Grove City, OH

    Supercharged there successfully this morning. IT took a long time to ramp up to full speed, starting off at only 29 mph. Could this possibly be because the car had been outside in the cold all night, and was only driven about a mile before charging?

    Supercharger - Grove City, OH

    Was that you in the grey S85 that I pulled up to and said hi? Visiting the science museum with my girls and will be charging up there in the morning. Absolutely no way I could make the trip without this SC. Now I'm just waiting for a couple in KY!

    Sluggish behaviours when cold (-20C)?

    I just had a very similar experience yesterday - which was also our first very cold day. Unsure if it's related to the cold or just a coincidence. Slow for the car to "boot up" (I have energy savings turned on), no sound from the turn signals, radio would not tune. Half way into my drive I...

    Supercharger - Grove City, OH

    I'm in Florence, KY with a Tesla that only charges to 248 these days. Can't make it, especially in the winter. Unfortunately our plans were cancelled due to my whole household coming down with strep throat!!!

    Model S Fair Market Value for Tax Purposes

    Hey gang, I have a 2012 P85, purchased on January 10th, 2013. I just received my property tax bill (eek!), and since they did not have a value for the car in the books, they're taxing me for 10% less than the MSRP. My thoughts are that the car is worth quite a bit less than that...

    FS: Tesla Model S 3rd Row Seat - SOLD

    I have an early VIN, and may be interested in messing around with it. Does the SC center have to install it, or can you DIY? My 6 year old could ride back there on occasion, but we don't have any problem with her in the back seat for now, and I'm not really interested in throwing any more...

    75% Insurance Increase

    I also had a Geico increase. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but it was more like 15%- 20%. Still stunk though. I thought insurance was supposed to go down as the value of the car depreciates!

    built in exta mileage with in the battery?

    I understand what Tesla says on the matter. Just trying to figure out why I can't get the range that others frequently report.

    built in exta mileage with in the battery?

    Wow, I've never been able to achieve even a one to one rated mile usage on a highway trip. Granted I've never set the cruise below 65, but even at 65 I was hoping to get the rated miles. Do you have an S? I've always wondered if the P's just use more energy, even with the same driving behavior.

    built in exta mileage with in the battery?

    Is this a typo, or a real story? How fast were you going? I just tried to do a 248 mile trip on my 252 full charge. Going 65 with no climate, VERY weak acceleration, and driving behind a semi (not too close, but enough that there may have been a difference). Only made it 220 miles. Makes...

    Recording Rated Range and Fluctuations (Submit Your Range)

    Do we really need to track E and F? E) MAX Rated Range at Delivery: F) 90% Rated Range at Delivery: Brand new range is going to be very similar and also dependent on what firmware was installed when it was delivered. I would propose eliminating those, and adding a column for current...

    Decreasing rated range.

    These are my exact numbers as well. For the last few months 218 was my maximum charge at 90%. Lately I have been charging ONLY to 90% and it has crept up to 223 but seems to have leveled out there. My last range charge was one week ago and I got 247 - with normal mileage drop as soon as I...

    Salespeople Misinformed About My Inventory Model S Purchase

    I thought about this for a minute, but it probably wouldn't change my communications to them at all. An educated customer is a happy customer. I often have knowledge of product changes scheduled for a year out or more, and I do not bring it up with my customers, because it is too far off...

    Salespeople Misinformed About My Inventory Model S Purchase
