    Sell 2014 Model S before 8 Year warranty expires?

    My late 2014 P85D+ has been fantastic. Still has less than 60K miles on it. I've been thinking of selling it but, at this time, nothing on the market to replace it with.

    DIY: Troubleshoot "dead" horn on 2014 pre-facelift model S

    That horn was dead on delivery. I've used mine one time.... never again. What an embarrassment! You would think in such a dominating car Elon would've put a substantial horn (think: TRAIN)

    Need Some advice: Chrome Delete or not? Powdercoat 21" Turbines in Satin Black or not

    If the car is new to you and you like it the way it is, wait and do it when you want a new look. I had the same thoughts as you, but every time I turn around in a parking lot, I love the way it is. I'm on my 4th year of ownership and have only tint, ceramic and Arachnids. Do what you want to...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    I had MCU 2 service/placement yesterday. It took 2 days but they indicated they were slightly behind due to staffing (COVID crazy in JAX right now). Things I've noticed thus far: 1. Great screen and resolution. I had a large bubble on the center stack prior. Resolution is very clear. Very...

    Infotainment Upgrade $2000 for AP2.0/2.5, $1500 for Older Vehicles

    Can anyone confirm or refute that the LTE upgrade is included with the MCU2 upgrade? If not, expected price of upgrade?

    Traded C8 Corvette in on Tesla Plaid

    Another Tesla and Vette owner here. I have a 13' cyber grey 427 and 14' P85D. Haven't felt the need to really change, trade or get rid of either. Both serve a purpose in my garage.

    I always carry a ball bearing... just in case

    Infotainment Upgrade $2000 for AP2.0/2.5, $1500 for Older Vehicles

    If I pay for MCU 2 upgrade on my API vehicle, does it automatically get the LTE upgrade or do I pay extra for that? My center stack has a large bubble, I assume this will be fixed as well. Still under warranty so I guess it's a mute point as it will qualify for repair no matter. JJ

    M3 Road Trip parking places for sleep

    As slow as my P85 charges, I could sleep at the SC. Sounds like a fun adventure. I'm a little envious. No need for a knife if you pack some heat, which I would definitely recommend. *sugar* is getting crazy out there, especially in areas where you are headed.

    2,250 mile road trip in my chargegated 85D

    Hardeeville SC is a treat... but it's busy. I was quite surprised recently. There was a line. Brunswick GA... damn that's a lot of SCs... a lot of empty ones too! There are 3 SCs just south of Jacksonville. One at a Wawa near the outdoor mall and Costco. One further south about 15 minutes at...

    Help with Ceramic spray choice

    If you've done nothing to your paint in years, I would suggest you take it to a professional who will wash, clay, polish and apply a ceramic. It will cost anywhere from $750-1250 depending on location but will make your car appear like new. You won't be disappointed, especially on a nice red.

    FS: FL: P85D

    I'm putting out feelers for my black on black P85D+ (Dec 2014 build). AP 1. MCU 1. Purchased as a preowned from Tesla and is currently under Tesla warranty until Oct 2021. It currently has 49K miles but is driven daily. It is in great condition though it was involved in a rear end collision...

    2015 P85D (w/ Ludicrous P85DL), Tesla CPO, Rear Facing Seats, All Options!

    So envious of the "L". Certainly wish they made this available with the MCU2 refresh. I would certainly entertain that upgrade to my P85D. I realize there are some hardware modifications required and I certainly don't know the details, but is there ANY way to make it happen?
  20. J

    2021 M3 RWD or 2019 M3 AWD?

    I would chose AWD w/o a second thought

    2019 Model 3 Performance White on White only 12k Miles

    Accident free? No known issues or problems? You realize "make an offer" opens you up to 'low ball' offers. I'll start $30K. You have a number in your head. I'd like to know that number.

    Blown front door speaker... suggestions

    I need to replace my front door speaker. I do not have the OE upgraded speaker system but always welcome better sound. Any suggestions on drop in replacement for both doors. Simple plug and play would be nice but not required. I'm also under warranty. Would this be considered a warranty repair?

    Need help opening frunk in 2016 with dead 12V

    ^ that's ridiculous. Why would they get rid of something as simple as the handle under the glovebox.

    I probably have this problem too. Can someone post a pic?

    Or any other Tesla. I would certainly take him up on the offer. It will never happen but would accomplish a few things: gets older Tesla batteries off the road, free up the "free supercharging". Fair market value for my trade plus a 20% discount on a new purchase... I'm in!

    New Fire

    Two things come to mind: 1. The music in the video is excessively dramatic. 2. Water didn't appear to suppress the fire, at least not quickly or easily. I have an 85 in the garage. I charge at 10 amps and hope to never encounter a Tesla fire while in or out of the car.

    Current owners... new thoughts on 3rd row space?

    Now that more than a few Y's are on the road, would like to hear owner opinions regarding the space for a useful 3rd row. Toddlers only, car seats only, teens, small adults. Anyone see or remember the useless 3rd row hopper seats in the BMW X5. That's what I'm picturing but obviously have no...

    Slow start - MCU1?

    To answer the specific question posed by the OP, yes my P85D occasionally experiences what I feel to be a prolonged boot-up time. In all honesty it's probably not more than 30 seconds and it doesn't occur all the time. I'm not sure what is causing it but I don't feel it's necessarily a new...

    Passenger door lock-unlock

    Can someone inform me as to how to allow the passenger door to unlock while the car is in D. I commonly pull out of the garage to allow my wife to enter the car and, before a recent update, she was able to push the handle and it would present itself. Now, I have to manually unlock the door from...

    The best headlights I've ever driven behind were in a 2016 BMW 5-Series with the lighting package. I would do just about anything to have those lights in my P85D. As someone who work all 3 shifts, I frequently find myself driving at night on dark roads. The bimmer used to handle this with ease...

    Anyone knows what those motors are

    Suggestion, appreciated.

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    I've definitely noticed a lack of regen braking of late, which is a little odd considering I'm in FL and it's quite warm. Definitely using my brakes more these days. Not a fan of that at all. I fell in love with regen braking and now feel like something I paid for has been taken away.

    Anyone knows what those motors are

    I have a high pitched whine of late; usually when charged over 80% I also have a gurgling sound behind the dash / instrument cluster, which is odd. It seems to present itself early in my drive but is sometimes present even after I've driven for 30 minutes. Any ideas? P85D

    I received a notification regarding a software update 7-10 days ago. Any news regarding AP1 cars and the most recent update. P85D

    I tried "Launch Mode" for the first time today.

    I would assume my P85D has launch mode but I've never tried it either. How is it done?

    From P85D to.....which Ludicrous model to get?

    As a P85D owner, I wouldn't do what you're considering. Someone else said it best, too much money for too little gain. If money is not any issue, the itch is real, and patience is not a virtue, get a raven. The fact that you are considering a used vehicle makes me wonder if money is an issue (or...

    Is my car bricked?

    Possibly.... rather probably a dumb question but, does everyone just replace the 12V every 5 years as a preventative maintenance item?

    Ordered Model S LR - End of 3rd Quarter offers (free 21” wheels & paint color.)

    Service Bulletin out on Hard Acceleration "Shudder"

    He said they were behind. I don't think the work took that long. I did have them check the alignment as I had new tires installed 2500 miles prior and wanted to make sure the tires were wearing normally. The end results was they checked the alignment and measured tire wear. They said all was...

    Service Bulletin out on Hard Acceleration "Shudder"

    Lug nut covers for 21 inch turbines?

    Can these be used on the Arachnids? Anyone have a pic on the Arachnids?
