    The right loan for the amount borrowed

    FWIW, I'm from OR & used Kinecta Credit Union for a loan rate of 2.89%. They were the lowest, that would service me. I think there were a couple on the east coast or south east, but you had to be resident in those states. PM for contact details if you need Kinecta rep details.

    Confirm raven by VIN?

    IDK ... It shows the rated miles as 365!!! For a performance. If so, that is awesome. It was my understanding, that P cars had a 345 mile range. Non P raven cars range was 370 miles. And all Raven cars had a 100kwh battery. So ... IDK. Somebody else can shed more light on this.

    Confirm raven by VIN?

    This may help, but others will need to chime in & confirm. I think Raven cars have a rated range of 370 miles; whereas the older ones had 335 miles. (Assuming you are getting a 100D). If so, ask the sales rep, to take pix of the dash that shows both the percentage & the miles. Extrapolating...

    100% = 370 rated miles? Or not ....

    Thank you for your responses. To make this simple: I'm only addressing a full 100% charge at home, which should show me 370 rated miles, as advertised by Tesla. That's it. I have no range anxiety; I'm familiar with EPA ratings (wind, elevation, tire pressure,,...), etc ... Those are not the...

    100% = 370 rated miles? Or not ....

    No range anxiety since we have already taken a couple of day trips. Its a peeve that's all, Tesla is advertising a range and touting the same; but the 100% charge does not reflect it in my case. AW, it just looks like false advertising on their part & now the Tesla configuration shows 373...

    100% = 370 rated miles? Or not ....

    Done that and 100% energy shows up. But the Q remains, why the 370 advertising? Do folks see it ever? If so, under what conditions?

    100% = 370 rated miles? Or not ....

    Hello: Hopefully someone can tell me if I should be concerned or not. Sept 2019 build Long range shows 364 miles after charging 100% at home (14-50). The car is (was) brand new when I picked it up a month back & I saw the same loss about 3 weeks back. Tesla service told me "it takes time" to...

    Anyone install aftermarket CF rear spoiler?

    I got this (review & pix in there) installed. Have got compliments on it & FWIW, I painted the calipers red & added Tesla decals as well. Finishes it as a whole imho. G'luck.

    What Comes with a New Raven Model S

    Congrats. Based on reports on this forum & others, you are possibly looking at about 6 to 8 weeks, subject to color & options. You may get lucky and end up with an inventory car; if you do, make sure you are very detailed during the delivery. Very very detailed. Freebies??? What are they...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    A friendly heads up, if this is your first Tesla: Make sure this is *not* an inventory car. If it is, which is OK, make sure you do your due diligence (extra) when picking the car up. Especially if it has more than 200 miles on it. G'luck, congrats on the car & welcome to the fold.

    Driving Experience / Feel - 21" vs 19"

    Thank you. I have been on my 21s & like it so far. And I cannot rotate them since they are not square. I will wait for BF to get some 20"s. I think (hope?) that will be best of both worlds.

    Tesla website says vehicle has repair history but carfax was clean?

    @sd_tom: My case was, I bought an inventory car from Tesla with 300+ miles on it. They sold it to me as new with no damage report at all. Carfax was clean. Later on I find out, the vehicle had been in an 'accident' or something (Tesla refused to tell me exactly what). And they did a buyback...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Tesla sales had a 'brain fart' moment & went rogue. A few weekends back, as part of EOQ push, they were giving away options (deviations in Tesla lingo) on inventory cars to spur sales. Some sales reps 'over read' this memo & offered it on new vehicles as well, which was taboo according to Musk...

    Lines 8 & 10 read the same. I think you meant to write, Line 10 as AP 3 / MCU2 / non-FSD perhaps? But yeah, I'll be interested in the poll results.

    Tesla does it right ... by me. Happy endings

    Summary: Hopefully this (long) post, in good faith, will provide some reference point(s) to folks, who are in a similar situation as me. My inventory car purchase did not work out well for me & the cost of saving about $6000/- was not worth the experience I went through. I would like to...

    Does NEMA 14-50 Adapter No Longer Come with Car?

    Bummer they don't. I checked with the OA when I picked my car & suggested, instead of cheaping (sp?) out on these, give the owners a choice what they want, since not all will use the Chademo adapter. Or at least for the S/X owners, give these for free!!!.

    New Inventory Model S Panel Gap Issue - Fixable/ask to fix before delivery?

    This is my experience & mine only. I purchased an inventory car, sold to me as new & it was shipped from California. Pix, price, etc looked great. I was the first owner. Got this registered & even got the plates for them!!!. Got it, loved it & got it wrapped after a month (the good ones are a...

    Good deals on Raven Standard Range Cars - is range the ONLY difference?

    I think all SR cars are pre-Raven, which means there are a lot more differences (some noticeable, others meh imho) than the Raven cars (cars manufactured after May 2019 I believe). I'll let the experts chime in. And yes, range may not be in issue today; but trust me, unlike ICE cars, EV cars...

    Driving Experience / Feel - 21" vs 19"

    Has Model S quality improved?

    Summary: Tesla's QC is not anywhere near the established manufacturers - especially on their higher end offerings. FWIW, this is my take: I owned one of the first Prius Plugin Hybrids, here in PDX, when it came out, since I believed (!!!) in the EV story. Luckily we leased that & I could not...

    First time driving a Model S

    I was in a similar boat a month or so back & after driving a MS, I don't think I'll go up. True this car has lot more quirks, than ICE cars - that we seem to take for granted, but it is, imo, one of the best & safest cars to own & drive. a) There is no active BS available, unlike some of the...

    Inventory 100D

    Talk about refresh started 8+ months back, with diff' pundits & experts drawing out 'what could be', etc. And Elon put all that to rest a month or so back.

    Inventory 100D

    a) How are you factoring two versions 'behind'? You are getting a 2019 100D. Not the Dual Motor, I understand, but still a 2019. And you are getting FSD, which is a *good* thing to have for resale. Depreciation is gonna happen no matter what. If you want to 'save some' on the depreciation, buy...

    Inventory 100D

    FWIW, I picked my 2019 MS100D inventory car (MSM/Cream) for about the same price as yours, but with EAP & lower miles. Is your apprehension based on: - Price paid? - Issues you are seeing about software updates? - Resale value? - Fit & finish of the car? You have not mentioned what those...

    2018 S100D advice

    As others have said above, I agree with them. Do not buy this car. a) It has close to 14K miles. You never know how it was driven (0 to 60'ed'), etc. For a year old car, the mileage is a bit on the high side. b) The asking price of ~$80K+ taxes is very high imo. c) It mentions EAP & FSD. Its...

    Northwest Tesla Auto Insurance

    Been with PEMCO for over 5+ years (previously with Safeco) and our insurance for the 2019 MS 100D is just shy of $1400/-. But it is for 3 drivers, one of them just turned 25. No accident / citation history past 3 years if my memory serves me right.

    Questions about Raven MS

    My purchase had the same Qs as yours, but I ended up buying a pre-Raven (100D) Feb 2019 build with EAP. And saved over 20% of the configured price. a) Tons of sources between how FSD > EAP > AP. And @iqless summarized it. b) We were told the charging rate is not significantly better in the new...

    Manage button disappeared

    Yup. Just checked. Back 'online' & ready to spend the $$$ on FSD. Or not. The price did not go up. Elon did say Aug 16th, but conveniently left the year out. Or he was speaking to another earth multiverse. :-)

    Manage button disappeared

    Not seeing the Manage button, when I logged in. Don't see my car either. Was thinking of buying the FSD upgrade; but maybe this is a 'sign' to not buy??? Anyone else not seeing the Manage button?

    Oedro Model S All weather mats for $65?

    I just got them today & they fit well. Only wish/complaint, is on the driver side, the mat could have been longer, on the left side, so that the left foot does not sit on the floorboard.
