    Nokian WRG3 tires

    I've never felt unsafe driving in snow/ice with the WRG3. It's just that, many weekends, I end the day on the slopes and then drive 150 miles home over the mountains. I think I posted about it last year; the WRG3s are fine (with the dual motor car), the Hakkas are just better. I think if I just...

    Nokian WRG3 tires

    If what you need are tires for occasional snow and ice and you don't want to swap seasonally, these are your tires. I've gone to real snow tires for the winter because my kids are now on ski team and we're basically living at the mountain. The WRG3 is an amazingly versatile tire.

    Roof box saga: Whispbar WB701 to Showcase 15 to Showcase 20

    I really thought I had them on there correctly but now you've got me second guessing myself! I, too, will try a level once I get it on level ground.

    Roof box saga: Whispbar WB701 to Showcase 15 to Showcase 20

    I've noticed that the rear bar is a little lower. Have you managed to set yours up so they're the same? That would be lovey. Also, my driveway is angled so late that contributes to the appearance.

    Roof box saga: Whispbar WB701 to Showcase 15 to Showcase 20

    Yeah, I think the 10 year thing became a little burdensome. One year seems pretty generous to me.

    Roof box saga: Whispbar WB701 to Showcase 15 to Showcase 20

    The rear bar is a little lower than the front. I'm pretty sure it has to do with the height of the roof line.

    Roof box saga: Whispbar WB701 to Showcase 15 to Showcase 20

    Last year I bought a Whispbar WB 701 roof box. It was expensive but was aerodynamic and about the perfect size for the Model S. Fast forward to this year and I can't reliably get it to close. A video of the problem sent to Yakima (who made Whispbar) confirmed that the product was defective. They...

    In many sections of hwy 97 the speed limit was raised to 65 earlier this year.

    Snowy drive over Hwy 58

    I sold them with about 10,000 miles on them and about 70% treat left. I blame a lot of that on the fact that they spend the last couple thousand miles on a P100D in Ludicrous mode. Drive them more normally and you'll get 30,000-40,000 miles out of a set.

    Snowy drive over Hwy 58

    I'm pretty sure they're asymmetrical (the inside and outside edges of the tire is different) but I was unaware that they had different options in the size for the Model S. I had the car versions in 245/45R19 all around on the Model S. The Model X has the SUV version in some crazy staggered sizes.

    Snowy drive over Hwy 58

    The answer is a qualified yes. I just replaced the WRG3s (yesterday) with a set of Hakkapelliita 8 studded tires. I've been driving over the pass to go skiing every weekend since Christmas and I'm going to continue to do so until the end of March. The WRG3s never felt unsafe and I never had any...

    Not only is this anti-social behavior but it's also illegal. The Oregon legislature passed a bill last year making this a finable offense. I would simply call the police non-emergency line and ask that they come hand out tickets.

    Thanks for the head's up. We're heading over on Monday and I'll throw a shovel in the car just in case. When I was there a couple of weeks ago it was totally plowed and easy to use.

    Portland, OR professional dashcam installer recommendations

    That's what mine would have been if they hadn't given me a 10% discount because they were doing the cam, xpel and window tint.

    It's a hard wired two camera (front/back).

    Shoot, sorry. Yes, it's in and it looks great. Mostly because I hardly know it's there. They did a really good job making it as invisible as possible.

    Vendor I don't follow Twitter much but Elon's a tease yesterday!

    I've been trying to figure out what it could be. The problem is the "unexpected by most" bit. All the things I could think of are expected so...

    Anyone know how many Signiture Red X's there are out there?

    North America or worldwide? Also, we have one.

    How was increased regenerative braking achieved with 8.0?

    I have 8 on my brand new P100D and I got a chance to experience pre 8 regeneration for a few days before getting 8. The regen with 8 is much more like my 2012 RWD was before they turned it down in 7. Also, I've changed my signature so my posts cause less confusion in the future.

    I'm having 503 Motoring do one in my Model S in October. That's the soonest they could get me in.

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    Not like it's that big a deal but I set up the app to notify me when charging is complete and it reported a 90% of 283. My guess was off by one. That's a lot of miles.

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    Yes, I can totally sympathize.

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    Aside from the wheel color choice our cars are identical. And yes, I'm taking it easy as i figure out what this level of acceleration actually does. I held off on punching it a few times on the freeway yesterday because I didn't want to end up rear-ending someone accidentally.

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    @Model S M.D. It was at 280 this morning for a 90% charge. I wouldn't be surprised that it had lost a couple miles from the time it finished to then. I'd guess 282 is a 90%. Also, I listened for front engine noise this morning and couldn't detect any. Also, also, this thing goes like stink.
  29. Lyon

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    I'm sure I'll have more to report once I get a chance to drive it more. I basically picked it up, hopped on the freeway, put on autopilot, and crused home. Okay, there might have been one or two full throttle accelerations. ;)

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    Now that you mention it, there is far less front motor noise than in our P90D Model X. I was also impressed by how much less road noise there is than my old 2012 Model S.

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    Reflection. The lights in there are tube fluorescents. You did make me go back out and look. ;)

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    The car wasn't all the way to 90% when I picked it up so I won't know what the 90 is until it finishes charging. I live 90 miles from the SC so that'll be sometime tonight. I'll update tomorrow. Yeah, I'm pretty sure I got all the options on the car. The premium seats are really a nice place...

    Nope. Perfect as far as I can tell.

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    It's here!!! So far it's perfect and fast as *%#¥! I was a little surprised by the staggered wheel/tire setup with the Pilot Super Sports. Has rear cup holders and USB.

    Wow, just got an email from the DS, he wants to know if I'm free Tuesday at 1. I'm not but I'll be able to be there a few hours later.

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    That's awesome! Mine says Sept 20 - Oct 4. I wonder if they're going to try and get it up here sooner so they can add another to their Q3 sales?

    No kidding! I'm super excited. Also, I just got the "production completed" email!!!!

    Winter tire recommendations

    I don't know what their policy is. In the past, I've taken the wheels/pressure sensors from Tesla and taken them to a tire store for mounting and installation. I'd just shoot them an email or call them.

    UK P100DL Confirmed

    I don't have a name picked out for this one. The first one is Blue Lightning. This one is also blue but it's going to need a new name.

    UK P100DL Confirmed

    I got the VIN in early August just after hearing that the 100kWh pack was announced in Europe. I had them push back production and then had them speed it back up once they were able to change configuration to the 100.
  45. Lyon

    Anyone have a delivery estimate for a P100D?

    My order is a little weird because it was confirmed in late April/early May (I don't exactly remember) and then I put it on hold to wait for the ventilated seats. I asked to have my configuration changed and to be put in for the first available build the day after the P100DL was announced.

    UK P100DL Confirmed

    I'm excited for you! I just found out that mine has gone into production. My wife just gave me the same "that's nice dear" the kid's get when they draw yet another epic star wars battle.

    I'm more excited about that than I should be. ;)

    Finally! The new rear cupholders!

    I don't think VIN has a whole lot to do with it. It's more about built date... at least I hope. My VIN is 155xxx because it was assigned in August some time. Since then I've changed configuration but it does not look as though the VIN has changed. This tells me that the VIN was assigned but the...
