    Comically poor delivery experience (still in progress...) [Tysons Corner, VA]

    At this point, I STILL don't have satisfaction from Tesla, so I'm game if your offer is still open. Their delivery garage is wide open and poorly manned. Anyone could basically walk in there with a camera crew (or discretely to get better footage than I currently have.) Drop me a line...

    Comically poor delivery experience (still in progress...) [Tysons Corner, VA]

    ********************** November 23, 2020 UPDATE: More than two weeks after delivery, I still cannot get anyone at Tesla to contact me. I've decided I'm going to use my day off after Thanksgiving to file a civil suit against them in DC. If noting else, maybe it will get someone to at least...

    Comically poor delivery experience (still in progress...) [Tysons Corner, VA]

    ************** November 12, 2020 UPDATE: I finally took delivery of my car last Sunday. Reluctantly. Nothing had improved as far as the delivery process/conditions. Still no chairs or tables or clipboards for all the paperwork. But more importantly, they only addressed 3 of my 12 issues...

    Comically poor delivery experience (still in progress...) [Tysons Corner, VA]

    [Sigh...] Still no communication from Tesla about the status of my car or if/when I might ever expect delivery. Maybe I'll start CCing them on this thread to see if that gets their attention. ...Or... I happen to run a marketing/PR firm in DC. I'm *this close* to putting real company...

    Comically poor delivery experience (still in progress...) [Tysons Corner, VA]

    I agree that it seems almost impossible to have this much wear on a car with 10 miles on it. I'm assuming it was the shipping company. Which I understand can happen. (Though that doesn't justify the factory paint defects, misaligned panels, or ridiculous delivery experience.) What kills me...

    Comically poor delivery experience (still in progress...) [Tysons Corner, VA]

    No grief yet about keeping the loaner. The guy at the showroom did suggest he may try to arrange a loaner from the service center so that he can have his demo car back, as they're down to just one model 3. But I've not heard back since last week. Frankly, I've not heard a peep from anyone at...

    Comically poor delivery experience (still in progress...) [Tysons Corner, VA]

    Forget service... you can't even get them to rally for sales! They clearly could not care less about whether or not I buy a car from them. (Have you ever heard of a car sales operation that can't return a phone call of a hot lead in less than several days???) Because they know that if I don't...

    Comically poor delivery experience (still in progress...) [Tysons Corner, VA]

    I hit the 'buy' button on my model S about 2.5 months ago now. I still don't have a car. ['Note: I'm in DC and my local Tesla center is Tysons Corner.] Let's start from the beginning... I got a cold email from Johnny D at Tesla about looking at a new Tesla. His timing was good. It was...

    BRAND NEW***Model S 21” Sonic Carbon Twin Turbine Wheels and Tires

    Mind if I ask what those wheels are and where you got them? I would love to go outside of the Tesla family of wheels just to be a bit different, but i don't understand wheel sizing well enough to know what other wheels may or may not fit my MS.

    FS: 21" Sonic Carbon Twin Turbines w/ ContiSportContact 5s

    My loss. Thanks anyway. If anyone else sees this and has 21" black twin turbine wheels, I'm in the market. I'm located in Washington DC.

    WTB: Black 21" wheels w/ tires. (Washington DC)

    I'm looking for a good deal on a full set of 21" wheels/tires for my 2020 MS. I prefer the the sonic twin carbon but for a good price could be talked into the turbines. Would even be happy with arachnids. I prefer satin black, but would consider gloss and matte, as well as grey. I'm in DC...

    sent you a dm but haven't heard back. Ping me if you still have them. Thanks!

    How often does Tesla release new inventory?

    Yes, that's correct. These few demo miles (usually ranging from 50 to 1500) can be worth as much as a $10K discount (or more) from what I've seen. And you're also right that one needs to be trigger-ready when shopping that way. I've had half a dozen cars slip through my fingers, just as I had...

    How often does Tesla release new inventory?

    I'm shopping for a new model S. I've been using Tesla Info: A buyer's guide, worldwide inventory listings and support for owners (if there is a better site, please let me know!) A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a big uptick in the number of new inventory cars matching my criteria. Each day, a...

    What are the differences between Long Range and Performance (beyond the obvious)

    Let me through a new wrinkle into the mix: is there a difference in resale/residual value? I'm shopping for a new MS right now and am generally finding 4x the new performance inventory than I am the long range inventory. Along the same lines, I'm finding that the performance models seem to be...

    What are the differences between Long Range and Performance (beyond the obvious)

    I'm struggling to decide between the a new 2020 MS performance v. long range. If it's JUST that P gives me ludicrous and launch mode, it's probably better for my marriage and society in general that I save a few bucks and stick with the long range mode. But if there are other design and/or...

    New order three weeks ago, and Tesla won't even answer emails

    UPDATE: my story gets worse... after a full month of no deliver y(I was promised delivery in 2-4 weeks) and no correspondence despite multiple inquires, I lit a fire under the people I was working with. They admitted that they had dropped the ball due to internal miscommunication and that the...

    New order three weeks ago, and Tesla won't even answer emails

    I know... it's just that it would be nice to get some love with 6 figure purchase. Or at least, to not be ignored. At this point, i feel like the cable company provides better service, and that says something.

    New order three weeks ago, and Tesla won't even answer emails

    I'm piling on the 'poor customer experience' bandwagon here. I pushed the 'buy' button over three weeks ago now. And Tesla won't even answer my emails about when I might hear from them about when I might get my car. It needs to be shipped from CA to DC, and at this point, I'm almost thinking...

    BRAND NEW - $2775 Arachnid Wheels/tires (Virginia)

    any chance these are still available?

    Curb rash. Ouch.

    don't worry... they get easier to accept with time ;-).

    Can I put 9.5" (offset: +49 / square setup) wheels on my 2020 MS?

    thanks for all the input. Maybe I should just stick to Tesla wheels. It's not like I dislike them. I just found this set of range rover wheels on ebay (21" Wheels for LAND/RANGE ROVER HSE SPORT SUPERCHARGED 21x9.5 | eBay) that I thought they looked pretty slick--especially for only a $1K for...

    Can I put 9.5" (offset: +49 / square setup) wheels on my 2020 MS?

    Found a good deal on ebay for some Range Rover wheels that I like: 21x9.5" Offset: +49MM Centerbore: 72.56 My car (2020 MS performance) currently has stock 19" (staggered) on them. If I get these new wheels, will I need spacers (or any other considerations for that matter?) thanks!

    Anyone DIY their own PPF on their Model S?

    Having watched 30+ hours of you tube videos, I now have the false sense of confidence to do my own matte PPF install on my new MS. Might even do the chrome delete and smoke the windows/lights if things go well. I'm going to forgo the pre-cut kits and buy bulk. However, I'm struggling to find...

    I have 19" Sonic Carbon Slipstream wheels/tires to trade/sell (I'm looking for 21") - Washington DC

    Here's some more detail... I currently own a 2014 S that came with the 21" silver turbine wheels. I've ordered a new 2020 S (delivery expected at the end of this month) that comes with the 19" sonic carbon slipstream (in dark grey.) I'm having my old 21" reconditioned to new condition and...

    2014 Model S P85+ / 30K miles. Mint. / Washington DC

    range: 258 charging rates: to be honest, I'm not sure. I very rarely super charge. Last time I did was months ago, but I remember being really impressed. I want to say it was 120-something (charging from near empty), but I'd have to go test it out to be sure.

    2014 Model S P85+ / 30K miles. Mint. / Washington DC

    To be honest, these are old pictures from when I bought it because it’s what I had when I put the ad together. I need to take updated ones (not that they look much different.) I don’t know the software version off hand, but it’s up-to-date.

    2014 Model S P85+ / 30K miles. Mint. / Washington DC

    For Sale By Owner. Located on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. Priced $5K below low-end of Kelly Blue Book Value. The car has always been garaged. I bike to work, so it has very low miles (29990.) It's in mint condition without a thing wrong with it. Paint job is almost flawless (it's washed...

    I have 19" Sonic Carbon Slipstream wheels/tires to trade/sell (I'm looking for 21") - Washington DC

    The title says it all. I got a new tesla S with the 19" sonic carbon slipstream wheels/tires, and I'd rather have 21" (ideally, the twin turbine in matte black if I get to be picky), but whatever. I can be flexible. I'm open to trading, buying and/or selling. Ideally in the DC area so we can...
