    Should I sell my Model S for a used Model X?

    So I currently own a 2015 P85D with about 49K miles. My vehicle warranty expires in November and the battery and drive unit warranty expires September 2023. I'm torn whether to buy an extended warranty and keep it or sell it for a 2019 or 2020 Model X Long Range Plus. I started looking at the...

    2015 Model S shutdown again!

    I was running some errands in town when at a light the car would not move. The gear selections all turned red and wouldn't go into gear. This had happened back in April of this year. I had to get it towed to the service center and a couple days later the rear drive unit was replaced. So I kept...

    Grinding sound and vibration from front wheel area.

    I have a 2015 P85D with stock 19 inch wheels and front brakes are good. But I'm getting a low grinding/rubbing sound and a small vibration in the steering wheel that feels like it's coming from the front driver's side wheel area. It doesn't happen all the time but always at low speed I've been...

    Issue with how to control climate in the Tesla app

    I noticed that after the last android (and maybe iphone) app update the climate section has changed. I noticed that I can no longer control the blower lever on the app. I can control the on/off, the temperature, the heated seats and steering wheel even the defrost but not the blower intensity...

    Door panel insert replacement

    The grey driver side door panel insert that matches the grey interior on my 2015 MS is scuffed up and showing it's age. Can someone help provide a part number and instruction video on how to do it? I'm sure someone here has done this already. Thanks

    What do these prompts mean?

    Today I got in my car and drove to two different locations. Each time I went to get back in the car I received three sound "prompts" from the car. Not the sound that happens when the car is telling you that one of the doors are open when you're in drive. Those are usually three fast sound...

    My MS can read out my emails now?

    So I got in the car this morning and my personal phone connected to the car like it always does. All of a sudden I get a prompt from the car that I received a text message, no big deal except it wasn't a text. It was an incoming email from one of my email addresses! The prompt was from an email...

    For Sale: Model S/X Wireless Phone Charger

    Model S/X Wireless Phone Charger I bought this wireless charger a couple of months ago to install in my MS. Unfortunately when I went out to install it today, I realized I have an OEM drop in center console and it doesn't work with it. My loss is your gain. I bought it for $125 on the Tesla...

    Nosecone frunk pieces and face-lift frunk pieces the same?

    I recently upgraded to the face-lift bumper on my 2015 P85D. I didn't change the frunk tub or the underhood trim. I reused the ones that came with the car except for the part that goes over the v bar assembly. That part won't fit right so that one I changed from the face-lift version. The...

    Face-lift under hood trim fit prefacelift?

    I have a P85D and swapped my nosecone for a face-lift bumper a couple months ago. I also swapped out the under hood trim above the vbar assembly just above the latch. I didn't swap out the two side pieces of under hood trim so I had to cut them to fit with the trim above the vbar. Does anyone...

    My 2015 P85D is acting very strange. All of a sudden after driving it half they day, I got in the car and the touchscreen is black.

    Good service experience in Paramus, NJ

    It's easy to find posts about horrible service experiences. As much as I think they're important in order to help inform others on the board and help service centers change, I also think it's important to post about good experiences. Here is my experience with my local service center in Paramus...

    Screen with speedometer not showing other cars.

    Not sure when this happened but I noticed a couple days ago that the front display that shows the speedometer (not sure what it's called) doesn't show cars around me anymore. It used to show other cars on the sides and front, even trucks. Now it just shows white or yellow accents where cars or...

    My armrest pads won't stay in place.

    I took off my armrest pads a couple weeks ago to wrap the area below them in carbon fiber. After putting them back on, one of them keeps sliding and won't snap in place when it is slid fully forward. How do I get it to stay in place without sliding under my arm when driving?

    So how come when I try and pre-heat the car via the app, I set it to "HI", it doesn't crank up the vents to level 11? It doesn't matter that the last time I was in the car, I had it at that level. It always goes to like level 4 or something. The last couple days have been really cold and no...

    Sometimes when I park the car and leave it, the headlights and screen stay on, and the mirrors don't retract when I activate the alarm. I have to open the door and close it again for it to turn everything off. Am I doing something wrong?
