    Saw these door and fender protectors on a Model S in Columbus, OH

    Anyone know what they are? I don't think I want them on my MS necessarily but I was curious as I had never seen them before.

    Disappointed with range estimate in first long term drive

    I thought this was worth noting. I have a Chevy Volt that I am still trying to sell and I moved it today around the block for some reason. As I was driving it around I realized - the CHEVY VOLT adjusts for temperature. When the temperature is high, the estimate on the car showed 40-42 miles...

    Disappointed with range estimate in first long term drive

    Thanks for all the feedback and comments on this. I understand the general consensus is that cold weather and speed dramatically lower range estimates, which makes sense. Couple of things though. 1. Someone said that "Tesla has to use the EPA/etc rated range estimate in the car" and I disagree...

    Had XPEL Ultimate full wrap installed - very impressed!

    Damn, maybe I can convince them to retry that part? Any tips / videos on how its done? - - - Updated - - - We did take off the MS and 85D badge on the back - I kind of like the way it looks so I didn't buy a new set yet to reinstall. As for the Ts, they were done with a pre-cut template so...

    Disappointed with range estimate in first long term drive

    Hey everyone, took my new 85D (just crossed 1200 miles) on its first trip from Cincinnati to Columbus and back today and wanted to share an experience I had. Essentially, I noticed a pretty big discrepancy between the estimated mileage the car showed and how the progress went as I was driving...

    Had XPEL Ultimate full wrap installed - very impressed!

    It took them just over 8 hours to do the entire thing. As for Tesla, they said hey offered it but stopped because they were having issues scheduling for delivery with local installers nation wide.

    Had XPEL Ultimate full wrap installed - very impressed!

    Same actually. Had to to do it in two pieces, seam at the apex of the curve of the hatch, above the 'T' logo.

    Had XPEL Ultimate full wrap installed - very impressed!

    After doing quite a bit of research on these forums and others, I decided to go ahead and get the full wrap done with XPEL Ultimate on my new 85D, Obsidian Black. I had it installed by Clear Bra Ohio, up in Fairfield, Ohio. Keith was the guy I dealt with, very professional, worked around my busy...

    Will Spotify come to US Tesla owners now?

    I'm pretty sure it was lifetime of the car. What's the email address to email Tesla about adding Spotify for US? Maybe a New Year's gift?

    Will Spotify come to US Tesla owners now?

    Tesla brings Spotify Premium to non-US customers Now that the app is written, the implementation is done, what are the chances Tesla allows US owners access this preferred music service?

    If we can find an email to direct our suggestion to, I'd gladly submit a request for it and see if we can get enough users to do the same to push them to look into a change!

    Driver Profile not key specific???

    I think its fair to say that this is a feature that could and should be included in the car based on the discussion in the thread. On a constructive note: does anyone know if this suggestion has been officially submitted to Tesla's engineers and product designers? I would bet a lot of money...

    I bought in OH and got $2000 off the price of the car, off the top.

    Driver Profile not key specific???

    The Tesla apologists in these types of threads are concerning to me... But in any event, I totally agree with OP here. This is a basic feature that my Corvette and my wife's Pathfinder have. Not only that, but I loved the feature of the Corvette to default to an "exit" position for the seat...

    What Swag did Tesla give you at delivery?

    I got a pair of Tesla hats, a red keychain, an umbrella, two scarfs (it's winter!), an ink pen, a lapel pin and a 85D. Oh I paid for that last one for sure.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Ha! I had to do nearly the same thing. At the airport just 18 hours after picking it up. I'm ALSO in the air browsing the forums. Wish this Gogo service was faster!

    Just saw delivery estimate go from Nov to Jan!

    It went well! The person doing the delivery was a newer (not the DS I had been working with the whole time, though he was there to oversee) and I clearly knew as much or more about the car than she did. It's pretty typical when I buy a car - I research the hell out of it. Still, they walked...

    Auto Pilot Changes already implemented?

    I understand what a time based nag means. And I was assuming it had added that. Ill check again after I get home in the day light. Btw - how does it no when I touch / hold the wheel? Never figured that out?

    Auto Pilot Changes already implemented?

    Yes I am inferring a time based limit. The driving conditions were pretty good. It was dark but the lines were clear and lighting very visible. Is everyone else on that same specific firmware version already

    Escort MAX 360 mount options and questions

    This is all very disheartening information. After getting the car last night I would definitely like to have a working radar detector. :)

    Auto Pilot Changes already implemented?

    I picked up my 85D yesterday (Yay!!) and am ecstatic. However, I think I noticed a change in the Auto Pilot feature. When I drove from Cincinnati to Columbus in early November on a P90D loaner I used AP for ~50 miles on the highway and I don't think I ever touched the steering wheel. Last...

    Escort MAX 360 mount options and questions

    Picking up my 85D today (yes!!) and got in the new Escort MAX 360 yesterday. What is the best mount for under the mirror placement do you guys recommend and is getting power to it pretty easy? Also is there any placement that causes issues with windshield shielding? Thanks!

    Question about Blink chargers on PA turnpike

    Ouch seems steep. That's $20 for ~140 mile range. More than double gas rate for a 30mpg car.

    First year depreciation number?

    Clearly people have a lot more data on this than me, but as a previous owner of an RSX (FWD), WRX STI (AWD), Durango (4WD), Tundra (4WD), Volt (FWD) and Corvette (RWD) and living in KY/Cincinnati with moderate snowing, I have done a lot of "testing". Personally, the advantages of AWD/4WD are...

    Actual Delivery most often better than Estimate

    I'll chime in here as well. I was super excited/nervous about the time frame for the car, but it went faster than expected. (But never as fast as you want.) I ordered on 10/28, confirmed 7 days later, production started on 11/16 and then it was in transit on 11/24. Car might show up at the...

    [Rumor] Tesla Model S Facelift in 2016 !

    This 100%. It's a very different situation for Tesla than for anyone else. It reminds me very much of the new phone/PC market where people are constantly trying to make sure they know about the rumors of the future devices so they can plan purchases accordingly. A significant redesign would...
