    Model Y 19" vs 20" Decision Guide

    I have 20" wheels with Goodyear Eagle F1 all season tires on my Model Y, (they say M+S on sidewall?). The range hit is a non-issue, even for road trips as you won't roll into the Supercharger with your last 10-15 miles you saved with the 19" wheels. There is absolutely no ride comfort issue for...

    Model Y Road Trip Experience

    Your car looks beautiful, but those pictures were awesome! Pro quality photo skills! Thanks for the trip details, sad that the supercharger issue came up. Happened to me back in 2013 on my way home from Fremont factory in new Model S, there was very little support at that time, luckily I limped...

    Odometer read 15miles...was this a previous rejected MY?

    My car delivered last Friday said 15 miles on paperwork, odometer showed 7 miles when I picked it up. Not sure if it matters at all as long as it is under 50-100, I thought they may have road test miles on them after a build but I guess they don't do that? Car seems great so far in the last 6 days.

    White/White AWD Vin 145xx

    Ordered my white/white/long range AWD/20" induction wheels in March, car was delivered last Friday in Las Vegas. My original date estimate at time of order was for delivery in mid May.

    2013 MODEL S P85 White with Gray leather/alcantara $49,900 obo

    Seats are leather with suede like Alcantara sides and trim. There is little to no wear at all and look almost like new. I am really careful and don't eat or drink in my cars. Pictures don't do it justice.

    Where can I see a Model X now?

    Petition to rollback 5.8s suspension behavior modification at high speeds

    I had 5.6 and about a week later got 5.8, and honestly could not tell a difference in highway driving until I read about the lockout of lowering at highway speeds. I will say I was a little angry/upset that the change in suspension would occur before I downloaded the new software update. I have...

    Best service experience ever so far!

    Funny! I hear ya, once you are at $100k, what's another few grand right! Lot's of high rollers at Mandarin, and Ferrari posers. I'll take my MS P85 over those unreliable gas guzzlers any day. We have over 100 MS in town already, so I am sure you'll see a few on your next trip. We Tesla owners...

    I want 21" Staggered Wheels for my P85

    JerryNYcom, I am thinking about doing the exact same thing with my rear wheels and tires on my P85. Can you tell me what differences in handling, noise, ride, etc. you noticed when switching to this set-up. I thought the + suspension upgrade parts were overkill for me, but I like the thought of...

    Best service experience ever so far!

    Plus suspension option is definitely more "planted" to the road, if it was $1-2,000 upgrade, it would be a steal. The difference in everyday driving for me though is not anywhere close to being worth the extra $6500. I do not and will probably never track the car and at decent, safe speeds in...

    Best service experience ever so far!

    I had the first service experience with my Model S P85 #6025 ever the last 2 days and it was the best service experience I have ever had as a car owner! It started with Tesla e-mailing me with "updates" that should be performed, news to me, as I have had very few problems with the car since...

    Tesla S - Daily Driver or Second Car?

    I have used the MS as my daily driver since i picked it up in March. I just sold a 2010 Porsche Panamera 4S, and it sat in my garage for 2 1/2 months without being driven much before I was able to sell it. The Tesla driving experience is so much better than driving an ICE car that you don't...

    What did you drive before getting the model S and why did you change?

    2010 Porsche Panamera 4S My Model S P85 is a very similar style sport sedan, but the MS is faster and cheaper to operate and has slightly more utility/space, seats 5 instead of 4. The Panamera is the best ICE sport sedan I've ever had, but I do not want another ICE car after living with the...

    Tinted, De-Chromed, and 22PLE Coated

    That is one of the best looking black cars I have ever seen! I have a white P85 with pano roof and grey wheels and love it, but your car looks fantastic. You will spend many happy hours washing though unless that 22PLE keeps dirt off well. I can go 2 weeks without washing my white car with...

    Hot Weather Range

    I have to agree with minimal impact on range so far in 105-110 degree heat here in Vegas the past week. The AC works very well in this level of heat also, and the iPhone app is great for pre-cooling the car before I get in. My car is white with grey interior which probably helps a little with...

    Any way to get a valentine 1 to work with Model S?

    My VIN is 6025, don't know about the windshield or not, but I still have not had any problems with my V1 working, I'll try to post a picture of where I have it mounted when I get a chance.Good luck and hope yours works fine too.

    Any way to get a valentine 1 to work with Model S?

    I use my V1 everyday in my MS, and have not noticed any issues at all. It works exactly as in my Porsche Panamera. I place it at lower windshield centrally with suction cup mount. It has already saved me from multiple tickets! Used it on the drive home from factory in Fremont to Vegas without...

    California Supercharger Usage

    Nice photo wraithnot! Thanks for the Barstow SC update. Last time I was there, only 2 chargers were up and running and the one on the right was much slower than one on the left(1A). This will be a VERY popular stop for Vegas-LA crowd in both directions, wish it were planned out like Tejon or...

    Door handle issues! Self-fix by fuse pull/re-insertion!

    I've had it happen twice now in 2 weeks and the fuses were seated firmly after the first time and the second time they were worked up and out slightly again. I have never had this happen in any other car I have had and I've had a lot of cars. Kind of makes me think it might happen again.

    Car is still available, had a couple of buyers fall through. Just listed on AutoTrader as well with pics and Carfax. Great car, just took delivery of my Model S Performance 2 weeks ago. The Panamera is the best ICE sports sedan out there in my opinion, and yes the color is fantastic. I would...

    Help me decide - Model S P85 or pre-owned BMW M5 (new F10)

    The money you will save not buying gas, (premium unleaded at about 10mpg!) in the M5 will pay for your $600/yr maintenance in about the first 3-4 months with the Model S. At the same time it is faster in real world driving, more comfortable, has more cargo space, and has much more technology in...

I left Barstow with 265 miles of range. It was a great drive, beautiful scenery through hwy 152 (Pacheco Pass) from 101 over to...

    P85 picked up at factory and drove to Vegas, car is better than I dreamed about!

    I picked up my new white P85 from Fremont on Friday and drove back to LA with stops at Gilroy, Harris Ranch and Tejon Ranch superchargers. The factory tour is truly incredible and if you can make the trip I would highly recommend the tour. There were about 11 people in my tour and 14 in the...

    Addressing factors that cause range anxiety

    Great article and info.! I am a first time plug in EV buyer and my first drive was a 600 mile road trip from Tesla factory back to Las Vegas.(Not the ideal first trip for a new EV driver!) The wait time to charge, even with Tesla superchargers adds a lot more time to a road trip, but it also...

    OWNERS! - do you get awkward questions about price tag?

    I am going to say less than my last car, (2010 Porsche Panamera 4S). Anyone who asks this question needs to look it up for themselves and it is really not their business to know what you pay for anything. We have the right in this country to spend our hard or easily earned money on whatever...

    Latest "Finalize your order" date
