    Door leather lifting

    I had the same thing happen recently on my 2017 model S. They told me it would require replacement of the whole door panel. Since I am out of warranty I’m going to try the heat blower idea.

    Vendor “X-Care EV Protection” - First 3rd Party Service Agreement for Model S, Model X and Model 3!

    Just picked up a 6 year extension for my 2017 Model S where the warranty is expiring next month. Fingers crossed nothing goes wrong between 10/15 and 10/29!

    Please Help! Drive unit seal not covered under warranty as part of drive unit??

    I received an invoice I had to agree to prior to my most recent warranty repair (headlight) also. Once they confirmed it was warranties, the cost went away. Kind of a backwards way to present it to customers though.

    Supercharger - Indio, CA (8 V2 stalls)

    Attempted to charge here on the way in from Austin on Tuesday - how on earth is this site not marked degraded by Tesla? 1/2 of the chargers give between 4-10kW or are broken. The cluster-f of this charger delayed my trip by almost 2 hours to get into Riverside. I sent a note to Tesla -...

    Do you keep a electric scooter/ bike in your MS to use while charging?

    Remove Visor Airbag Stickers

    I used rubbing alcohol. Put it on there with a very damp paper towel, let it sit for about 45 seconds, and begin gently peeling. It gives it a weird texture in the end, but should come off completely.

    Three-position dynamic LED turning lights in new, custom Model S

    Yes, I have the setting and it's enabled. Just doesn't seem to actually do anything. Brought it up at my last service visit and got this response. My 2013 didn't have adaptive headlights (as they didnt exist then), and did the EXACT same thing with the lower fog lights - so I think they're...

    AP2.5 Dashcam records when climate is remotely turned on!

    Got the USB drive setup this morning and I noticed that the camera began recording again during my grocery shopping after I turned on the climate control remotely so the car would be cool when we got back to it! Pretty sweet way to be able to see what's going on when you're not in the car/driving.

    What’s my 2016 P100D Worth?

    A P100D sold on the tesla site preowned with 20k miles last week in the high 90’s, with warranty for another 50k miles. I’d imagine you could get a few more dollars from private sale, but if Cali will credit you for taxes by trading into tesla directly, it’s probably worth doing.

    Car seats: how do you all prevent creases in the headrest?

    My last S had the lines from the Dionos even 2.5 months after I removed them (and it was summer - I thought the heat would make the leather more supple and likely to come out). You can see it in the attached photo. Not sure how to prevent so I’m hoping my daughter grows faster so i can change...

So I have to say their customer service and product seem good...

    Ideal Aftermarket Audio System for Model S

    No, I bought new speakers from BA designs. I still have the old speakers and from what I read, it’s not too hard to cut them out and put in new ones. But I want to keep them in case I switch out and get a new Tesla, so I can put the stock ones back in.

    Should I Trade In My 2017 Model S 75 for an AWD Model 3?

    I'm wondering the same thing with 2017 90D - feeling like I can sell it and buy a Model 3 Performance and even keep a couple thousand dollars. Love the thought of faster, better (newer) MCU, and I can buy FSD at a discount. Only downside for me right now is that I think it'll be harder to fit...

    FSD price increase disincentive

    While I agree that prices can change over time, I agree with many members above that if you buy something and it says $4000 Later - that it should be $4000 later - unless there was a "price subject to change" caveat that we all didn't see?

    Anyone try B.A Design works speakers/sub upgrades?

    That works well if your car already had the UHFS system, but for those of us with the standard sound system, not quite the same simplicity of upgrade. I wish all the cars were “wired” for the UHFS sub and amp - would make it super simple to do then.

    Anyone try B.A Design works speakers/sub upgrades?

    Compared the speakers tonight to my friends car (with standard Tesla audio system), and the BA Design speakers definitely have more bass and are louder at the same volume levels. Still need a subwoofer though to get the bass I want. Glad to see there is a difference though!
