    Trunk (aftermarket) lights keep falling off

    Hello, I've installed a couple of lights in the trunk by now by attaching them to the inner-upper right & left plastic edge/lip of the trunk (plastic), however, they keep falling off and was wondering if anyone had any other alternatives (hot glue gun, crazy glue, etc) to keep lights from...

    How do you wash your car? (with water restriction)

    Hi, I live in a city where the water restriction prohibits car washing at home. Besides the fact that I'd like to wash the car myself, I already spent quite a bit of money buying the car to turn around and pay extra every week or every other week for car washing (and I am talking about of a...

    No one buying this Model S because?

    You can call your Tesla Sales rep, or just the Tesla Sales team and give the car number (looks like it is 080117) and they should be able to give you some info on it.

    Carbon fiber on Blue Metallic

    Ok, let's expand it a bit. If you have somewhat dark Model S with carbon fiber on the side mirrors, can you post pictures? Do you feel like it can be too dark and not noticeable? Thanks

    Carbon fiber on Blue Metallic

    Is there anyone out there that has a Blue Metallic with the side mirrors wrapped with Carbon Fiber? I am tempted about getting this done (instead of XPEL) on the mirrors, but worried that everything will be just too dark and not noticeable. Thoughts? If anyone has had this done, would you...

    Hi all, What product do you all use to maintain the (non-upgraded) dashboard? Also, what about the leather seats? I've heard Zaino is pretty good. If there's a thread on this, please point me to it. Thanks!

    Which NEMA 6-50 Adapter?

    Yeah, sorry, that's what I meant to say.

    Which NEMA 6-50 Adapter?

    I will travel and stay somewhere where there's a NEMA 6-50 plug. My understanding is that TESLA doesn't sell the 6-50 to 14-50 adapters anymore, so I have to find one. I did check with my local Tesla Serive Center (through my Delivery Specialist) and they don't have any. The two that I've seen...

    Best After Market Upgrades?

    Jool, looks great! I've been thinking of doing the same. I have a similar car (darker blue though ,the "blue metallic"), just afraid if it will look too dark for mine, but it should be fine. If I don't like it, I can always peel it off. Was this the first time using PlastiDip? Any tips?

    Any Advice for Destination Charging near Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX?

    bollar, many thanks for the great tip! Just read a little bit about getting NRG EVGo, I don't see myself going to Dallas area that often so looks like the "flex" will be best for me (no monthly fees). However, $4.95 for setup and then another $4.95 / session + $0.20 min if I go with...

    Tell navigation to route you to different path/streets

    Hi, Is there a way to tell the navigation system to route you to different highway or streets? Right now it has me going through a much longer path and I would like for it to tell me or route me to a different path, mainly because I want it to tell me the left over battery prediction by the...

    Rated range goes down quickly

    Thanks for the info everyone. The pre-cooling happened at the house while it was plugged in, so there shouldn't have been any loss of energy during that time of pre-cooling. I only have done the recommended charge of 240 miles for daily use (and will continue to do so), or is that too high for...

    Rated range goes down quickly

    Hi all, I am new to owning a Model S 85 and have noticed that the rated range goes down very quickly. As an example, today my family (of 5, 3 of them are kids of 8 and 3 years old) went to grab something quick. Here's the info: Model S 85 with standard 19" rims in covered garage Fully...

    Rim cleaning, maintenance and shiny tires

    Did a quick search but didn't find too much on this topic other than a lot of comments on the two bucket washing approach. If I missed a thread, please just point me to it. I have the stock 19" rims, and although I would love to have the 21" Grey Turbine as they look amazing, I decided to...

    Texas (or areas where it is hot): A/C doesn't perform as expected

    I've read a lot posts on how great the A/C is and that's not what I am experiencing. A concern I have is about the A/C, it doesn't seem to cool as I would think it should, or at least what I am used to from previous (ICE cars...not that ICE cars have much to do with it). Basically, we are used...

    Tinted windows recommendations. Good place in Austin?

    Thanks for those details tstafford. I called the place today and it looks like they do ~3 Teslas a day (give or take he said), and recommended the F1 Pinnacle (ceramic) one as well. The verbal quote was close to what you provided. I see that you have Pano, you got that done as well? you also...

    CPO purchase: when did you pay for delivery fee?

    @DBM, very nice that you got the $1,500 applied back to the car! The $1,000 deposit goes towards your car when you finalize the transaction, that's usually the case. @freeewilly, I think Schmidty meant that he is just picking it up from the location where the CPO is, and there won't be an...
