    Almost two months at the Tesla Charlotte Service Center

    😩 I have that sick feeling in my stomach. Thanks for the encouragement in knowing that I'm not alone.

    Almost two months at the Tesla Charlotte Service Center

    Hi All, I hit a deep pot hole back in mid July in Charlotte, NC and the air suspension and front end on my 2015 MS was damaged. The estimate listed over 10 different parts needed to service my car and I was told by the service center (in the app) that the parts were on order. It is now almost...

    parking brake fault

    Thanks for the response. Were you under warranty for the brake replacement? Also, when you said "it does not apply to my 2015," that's what I thought originally based upon Tesla's own recall notice. However, the updated notice says Tesla Model S vehicles between 2012 - 2016. The recall report...

    parking brake fault

    Has anyone been successful getting Tesla to apply this problem to the recall? There was a recall in 2017 for this exact issue - https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2017/RCLRPT-17V260-5503.PDF

    AP1 owners take heart

    For me, the biggest concern I have between AP 1.0 & AP 2.0, and any other Tesla innovation is the value of my car. I welcome the breakneck, radical innovation that Tesla is conducting. What is clear is that their pricing strategy does seem to benefit those with the older technology. I have an...

    Those Dirty Birds!!!!

    Thanks for all of the suggestions. I do have 'before' pictures so I know where the bird poop is to check for imperfections after they wash and prep the car. Definitely considering the Opticoat and cQuartz coatings after delivery.

    Those Dirty Birds!!!!

    Hello all, I'm picking up my Model S85D this week and "just so happened" to be in the area so I decided to drive by the Tesla Service center. The car was sitting outside with dirt and bird poop all over it!! :mad: I know they will wash it of course, but has anyone had any issues with the paint...

    Few Trade-in Questions

    I had the same dilemma with my 2007 BMW 650i. I ended up putting it on Craigslist, carsdotcom, autotrader, and ebay. The trade price Tesla offered with $7k lower than I ended up selling it to a private party. It is a pain the rear, but if you can stomach it, would definitely put it on ebay...

    NVX Subwoofer

    Good question. I was just on the Evannex site looking at it as well. I am wondering if anyone has installed and have any comments on how it performs and how easy or difficult it was to install.

    70D loaded vs. 85D with fewer options

    I had the same dilemma and chose the 85D and 'stretched' the budget. It is definitely conceivable to save $10.5k on a new purchase by not choosing the seats, autopilot, updated audio and premium interior. I am in MD so getting a total of $10.5k back from tax credits was also a factor in my...

    Ended: $2K Off Instead Of $1K From Current VA & OH Owners, Confirmed

    For everyone who is looking to get the $2K, just make sure you have all the information of the "referrer" so can be sure you are knowledgeable of who they are. My salesperson mentioned that people need to operate in "good faith" and so being referred by someone should be a true referral. Take it...

    What Do You Do During the Wait? Anticipation ~

    Just curious what people do during the wait? I check the "My Profile" page daily. I am in the "Your Model S is in transit from the factory" stage. I've come across this video - classic Heinz Ketchup Anticipation TV ad 1979 - YouTube What do you do (or what did you do) during the wait for your...

    Model S Order & Delivery Tracker

    The status reads "Your Model S is in transit from the factory." Is this a new status message? I don't see the option in the spreadsheet.

    It's here!

    Congratulations to you!!! Stories like these make the wait that I have (30 more days) less painful. I can share in the joy!!! I have the exact same color S85D in production. Enjoy!

    Hi - I'm new. Am I nut for considering a Model S??

    I'm afraid to say it, but it's too late for you. As ssq said, once you've 'been bitten' the infection just spreads. Now you will find yourself lurking, lurking, lurking. Then obsessively watching youtube videos for 0-60 sightings and searching Google for Telsa news and updates. Then you'll take...

    Ended: $2K Off Instead Of $1K From Current VA & OH Owners, Confirmed

    @andrewket - you make a good point. I don't think I will pitch a fit since you are right, I had already had a referral in the system. I still think it really doesn't matter if I had a credit but I can understand both sides of the argument.

    Ended: $2K Off Instead Of $1K From Current VA & OH Owners, Confirmed

    I got rejected - again. They told me that I had to go with the original $1000k referral that I used. I think it is horse poop but also don't want to make a big deal of things.... oh well :crying:

    Am I Crazy for Not Getting Auto-Pilot?

    You make a great point, as does WATTZEE and gg_got_a_tesla. I don't commute either, but just plan on taking it on some trips from time to time. The other great point is that the technology tends to get integrated or cheaper over time, as they introduce new technologies so I could see it as...

    e-FTW thank you for the insight. I figured as much. I went back to the person who said would sponsor me for the letter and I will do the same. Thank again. If I can get this, I plan to add AP! :-)

    Am I Crazy for Not Getting Auto-Pilot?

    I looked on the Model S Order & Delivery spreadsheet and it seems like everyone (almost) is getting the Autopilot feature. I feel like I am going to enjoy driving the car so much that it is not something I need (although it can be added for an extra $500 at any time). Am I the only one who...

    Thanks ddimit & jtpassat for the insights. I will check into Allied but also get a few estimates / quotes.

    Ended: $2K Off Instead Of $1K From Current VA & OH Owners, Confirmed

    I was told the exact same thing a couple of weeks back when I ordered. The DS exact words were "Regarding the referral credit, both you and your referrer will be receiving the 1,000 credit." So according to him, the other $1k goes to the resident of the state.

    Model S Multi-Discount Insurance

    Hey Everyone, I know the insurance topic has been covered but I'm looking to see if anyone has input specifically on companies that have done well with both home owners and Tesla insurance. I also have a Harley V-Rod that I may insure as well. I live in Maryland and close on 10/15 and taking...

    Model S Order & Delivery Tracker

    Awesome AuKirk! I live in Odenton MD and close on my house in mid October so I am trying to time everything right. I am taking delivery 10/30 (keeping fingers crossed) but would be interested in getting the info from your electrician if they did a good job at a good price.

    Long time lurker, Just placed an order for a 90D!

    I guess I'll join the party. You guys are the big boys - I don't commute so I stuck with the 85D. Congrat's to you both and I'm getting excited meeself!

    Can I Make Multiple Payments Between Ordering and Delivery?

    That's a great question in my opinion. I assume you are trying to minimize your monthly so trying to exercise discipline in directing $$ to your new MS? I'm with you. How about opening another account where you don't have a debit card :-)

    New to the Tesla MS Family with my P90D

    Nice & Congrat's! What was your thinking behind the wheels? They are nice and fit the car but just wondering. I just ordered an 85D with the 21 grey turbines.

    I saw my car on the 405!!

    I ordered that same color too - October delivery. That must have been a rush - to see your actual car. Congrat's!
