    What did that run to have the headlight assembly replaced if I may ask?

    2015 Model S - no error when one headlight not working?

    It happened to me once and never had a problem again. Both headlights have been working fine with good output since the one occurrence. No error message and didn’t notice the car icon status on the IC

    Dust Behind Instrument Cluster (Cleaning?)

    Here are a couple of pics of the incurred damage as a result of ‘service’ I took about 2 months ago just after the service visit to replace the recall EMC and upgrade to LTE. My touchscreen developed bubbles from the service which I had to pay an agreed half price for the replacement which I...

    Dust Behind Instrument Cluster (Cleaning?)

    Wow smh thanks for the pics. I let scratches in the silver bezel trim go in various spots which was overshadowed by much larger issues that needed to be resolved in my last service visit. Pretty annoyed over a hole slightly larger than say a large pin would make but noticeable on the leather...

    Dust Behind Instrument Cluster (Cleaning?)

    @Arktctr when you mention ‘damaged a few dash pieces’ which will now be replaced. Are we talking scratched silver bezel pieces during repair which I’ve experienced and overlooked or worse?

    Why is Tesla Solar so Inexpensive Compared to Others?

    Interesting yeah I agree with you and that frame of theory despite the fact that it would hit my pocket.

    Why is Tesla Solar so Inexpensive Compared to Others?

    No definitive ruling or expectation from the IRS or governing body which really surprises me. If anyone has any knowledge as to the contrary please post your findings bc I'd love to hear it.

    Why is Tesla Solar so Inexpensive Compared to Others?

    Our conversation with the IRS. We spent a great deal of time on the phone with the IRS seeking answers to these questions. Everyone there was extremely helpful, but it took being transferred to several individuals within the organization, before we were able to get a hold of someone with some...

    Why is Tesla Solar so Inexpensive Compared to Others?

    Gotcha and thank you for the point of view. Also it can be noted that SREC's which we both enjoy and love are tax free income in essence.

    Why is Tesla Solar so Inexpensive Compared to Others?

    When you both speak of 'tax free' and tax free per year can you expand on your meaning here please? And how that relates to 'all-black panels?

    That is such a poor message and just distasteful business. I couldn't agree with you more

    @ZsoZso So what are you thinking with your 2014? Trade-in or private sale?

    Anyone missing a model S in Southern California?

    Does the new fob look the same as the older version and/or does it have any different functionality?

    Regen and Braking on Snow/Ice/Slick Roads

    Thanks for your input. I would like to hear from some others with only the RWD motor and note their experience. I have a RWD MS and although it's ok in the snow and slick roads I have not tested it so much and my experience is limited. I can recall a time where I lapsed and didn't 'feather'...

    Regen and Braking on Snow/Ice/Slick Roads

    Can the same be said for earlier MS with only rear wheel motor as most now experience dual motor I'm sensing here?

    My Model S door handles were upgraded to Model X handles

    Thank you for your feedback

    My Model S door handles were upgraded to Model X handles

    What is the process to calibrate door opening for a handle that presents normally but doesn't open the passenger door when pulled upon?

    What is this that broke and is this common on Model S?

    @dark cloud What indication has you thinking this MS is in California? I think the location is west palm beach in Florida. Still yeah very clean underneath, well it's only 3 years old w/ 30K miles so just getting 'broken in' No pun intended, sorry about the control arm.

    Real-time Kwh/mile sudden drop

    Estonia sweet. All seems to be back to normal with typical measurements and readings for this time of year and weather here in the Northeast US with regular charging between 40-80%

    Model S windshield wiper upgrade!

    Bosch Icon is the way to go although I picked up some Michelin wiper blades at Walmart in the past to try them out and I got a good year out of them just to see the difference. Not as sleek and visually appealing as the Icon blades though IMO

    Real-time Kwh/mile sudden drop

    Nope flat 65 mph with no wind to speak of and slight rain

    Real-time Kwh/mile sudden drop

    Agreed. With range mode ON too still 167 wh/m is unheard of, hence, my post like seeing a unicorn this morning. Additionally my wh/m was pinned at 637 for quite a few minutes which I thought was weird too and this is right before it plummeted to 167 which then raised to like 222 and such for...

    Real-time Kwh/mile sudden drop

    Maybe when I dropped below 25% traveling on the highway and let up on the accelerator that action along with the shutdown of the battery heating operation caused the kwh/mile to drastically lower. Not sure, possibly. Thanks for your reply. You have never seen your kwh/mile that high? What...

    Real-time Kwh/mile sudden drop

    This morning I experienced a sudden drop from 637 kwh/mile to 167 kwh/mile while driving for 10 minutes at this point in 36F temp with a battery pretty much cold soaked since I only pre-heated for maybe 10 minutes before starting out. I have never seen this happen before and there was no...

    Washington Post Tesla Fire hit piece

    That is very interesting and with quite a lot of 85s still in the wild for sure, only time will tell. Thanks for the insight

    Question about door handles

    copy thanks for the post, not bad all in all. I will post when I get around to having mine repaired too for reference. This was a SC visit or mobile ranger?

    Question about door handles

    @Pluto Nice and congrats on the fix. Did the tech share what the problem was with that particular handle? Any chance it was a goodwill repair?

    Question about door handles

    @besnova thanks yeah I went into both fuse boxes in the frunk near the bottom of the windshield and all the fuses felt inserted firmly and fine. I took out the fuses for door controls(maybe #41) and rear door handles(maybe #30) and it didn't resolve the passenger front door handle issue. I...

    Question about door handles

    Any insight by members as to what a handle issue may be if the handle extends and retracts fine with puddle light fine too yet the handle pulls limp and does not open the door and when it extends fully it extends even more so than usual and pulsates at the more than fully extended position?

    Intermittent Tire Pressure Monitoring System Malfunction

    Same, in my case I believe the signal is weak from the sensors being that they are well over 5 years old

    Question about door handles

    @tranzndance I do not hear a high pitched sound in my case. I listened closely from inside the cabin repeatedly moving the door handle by going from park to drive park to drive....and I didn't hear anything except maybe a tingle of a click at the end of the cycle when the handle fully retracted...

    2018 MS motors freeze after parking

    Same here. Brakes stick to rotors after washing or raining and vehicle sits. I have a further story though where one of my little parking brake pads pulled clear and clean off due to them sticking the day after hand washing her and I found it in my driveway a couple of days later and this...

    Hood Crease - 2020 Model S

    You really need to go over your vehicle with a fine tooth brush after every service. I had a damaged headliner returned to me after some other non-related issues were addressed early in ownership by flatbed back in the day when they used to pickup with flatbed and drop loaner and return with...

    Question about door handles

    I tried to reboot and same. I'm going to try a hard reboot, holding the scrolls in for a minute later at a supercharger stop and see if that does anything. If not, Friday maybe I will try to pull the fuse(s) in the frunk and see if that fixes the issue. @Pluto When are they going to get you...

    Question about door handles

    Does anyone feel a handle that presents and retracts normally but pulls limp and does not open the door may just need a recalibration?
