    Hot to fit things to look at for a backwards facing child seat?

    We have a MS and we have two kids, one age 5 and one age 1. The 1-year old is traveling in a backwards facing child seat in the back seat. In previous cars we've had a mirror on the headrest that's in front of her so I could see her from the drivers seat. This is good when I'm traveling alone...

    What's up with these capacity KWh numbers?

    I can't really get the numbers to add up for my S85. Last charge was to 80% and I have 17% left and have used 32.6 KWh. That would mean 100% is 51.7 KWh. I know there have to be margins but shouldn't I be able to use at least 75 of the available 85???

    Delivery month gone from dashboard?

    Hi So I confirmed a month ago and got a VIN about 10 days later. At time of order, earliest possible date for delivery was "July" which is what my dashboard stated until now. Now there is no date or month at all. Should I be worried or is this normal?

    Tesla selling the original or turbine 19" Rim separately?

    Hello, Sorry if this has been asked and answered but I couldn't find it. Does Tesla sell the original 19" rim to MS owners? I need a rim for my winter wheels and don't really think it's worth the hassle to get an aftermarket one that fits but I don't want the complete winter wheel package from...

    Tesla Model S advertisement?

    It is generally known that Tesla doesn't do advertisement or commercials. When I visited Oslo the other day I discovered that it isn't entirely true. On the central Oslo <-> Oslo airport train, there was and advertisement for the Model S. New trend? Or just a local thing?

    [Solved] Tesla's ordering model makes it impossible for me to order. Any advice? Hello After finally convincing my wife that a Model S is a great idea, actually getting one might be impossible. :( And no, this has nothing to do with the dealership issues in the US. Why then? The company I...

    Pano for headroom only

    I'm debating with myself about getting the pano or not. The reason to get it is extra headroom, I'm 185 cm (somewhere between 6' and 6'1") tall. The reasons to not get it is that it is expensive to just get ~2 inches headroom. And it seems to have some problems like creaking, leakage, etc. Can...

    Volvo concept mimicking parts of the Tesla interior

    Saw this and thought it looked a lot like parts of the Tesla interior. Maybe other car manufacturers are starting to pick up on the minimalistic design. Volvo Concept Estate I'm of course referring to the dashboard.

    Europeanizing needed for the Model S

    The intention of this post and thread is to try to list things that seriously needs to be europeanized (for lack of better word) on the Model S. It is not a wishlist of the type "my Audi/BMW/Mercedes has this feature and I want it on the MS too". It is not to bash anything. I love the MS but...

    Hi Sorry for starting so many threads. If the asked questions have already been answered, please point them out. (I of course search first).

    Guaranteed buy back in Europe?

    Hi Have anyone heard of a guaranteed buy-back program in Europe like the one in the US? When I test drove last week the sales-person casually said something like "since we have to buy some of them back".

    Tires on 19" wheels in Europe?

    Hi I'm researching while waiting for leasing approval to order a Model S. Does the European delivered Model S also come with the Goodyear RS-A2 on the 19" wheels? Same on both the 60 kWh and 85 kWh? I saw something about the 85 kWh getting Michelin tires in the US? If it's true it's a really...

    DC charging on type 2 mode 3?

    Hi I've been trying to understand the type 2 mode x thing. Model S have a plug that's obviously compatible with type 2 modes 1,2 and 3. And it does DC supercharging with this. Can it do DC charging from non-supercharger type 2 mode 3? Limited to 70 KW of course. Does such charging stations...
