    Plaid cracked roof glass at delivery

    This happened to my Plaid, they let me take delivery and mobile service came and installed a new panel a week later.. The crack was on the inner layer of glass. Car is perfect in all other ways.. I would have taken it!

    Vendor Refresh Model S LR/Plaid : Winter Tire Option

    So what I plan on doing is buying an extra set of the stock 21" wheels and having them re-finished in another shade of silver or maybe gloss black this time. There are many companies around that will do that. I had a 2018 Model S before and I bought a set of the original Arachnid wheels and sent...

    Winter tire recommendations

    I really want to keep the 21's on my Plaid year round. I know they dont make snow tires in the rear size of 295/30/21, but i was considering 285/30/21 which they do make in Pirelli. I really hate the 19" wheels.. Anyone else plan on using 21's in winter? I was really hoping Michelin would come...

    2021 Model S Plaid for Sale

I will be willing to part with my black interior Plaid this weekend. I have the Title and IL registration in hand. 2228 miles as of now. In Illinois...

    VIN# for my Red/White Plaid! Finally! It's been a rough 3 months with Red/Black Plaid 😏 I'm gonna keep both for a few weeks just to confuse my neighbors.

    I knew it! All this for nothing.. Why couldnt he have said something that the new Plaid would be excluded.

    Safety Score

    Darn! No email and I hit 100 Friday at 3PM... I had over 500 miles and perfect score every day except the first day, but that was 10 days ago. Hopefully they are coming in small waves like he said, but he did say that "Everyone" with a perfect score on Friday would get it.

    Safety Score

    I'm pretty sure the code has been written already to send to all cars who have a 100 score. Would be a lot more work for them to segment that up.

    Safety Score

    OMG just hit 100!! After 10 days of misery.... I started at 98, then slowly 99 and forever to get up to 100! I have to drive home 5 miles now and I am so scared!! I hope they didnt already cut off the scores...

    I cant find that picture what you guys are talking about.. Are you referring to the rattling noise coming from the back of the car when you go over bumps slow? I am so annoyed by it! Where exactly do I put this?

    So I am torn! MY EDD is coming up! Oct 11-20th! I currently have a Red/Black/Ebony Plaid with 1100 miles on it. I paid $10k more for that one so I could get it in July (I am glad, bc I could not have waited this long). I love the car and really love the interior now. The ebony wood is just so...

    Plaid owners - Tired of Plaid?

    I've owned my Plaid for 3 weeks now and I figured nobody would notice it since it looks like every other Model S to the average person. BUT, I was wrong! I can't tell you how many people have stopped me in parking lots and have tried to race me. Everyone wants to see the Yoke first and then ask...

    The battery is 99.1 KWH, just slightly smaller than the previous P100D. The EPA has to know what size the battery is for testing, there was a report somewhere on this.

    POLL: vibration felt when slightly accelerating refresh Mode S Plaid or LR

    This issue is something that can be easily seen as rough pavement and I thought that for the first 100 miles or so. I thought the wider tires were picking up more road imperfections, but then I looked it up and there were plenty of threads about it here. My driver side mirror also vibrates more...

    Ok, then maybe I need to have the AC checked.. Are your seats really firm compared to other Tesla seats? This may be a personal thing, I cant find anyone else that doesn't like the seats..

    Ok, is this the thread for my issues and dislikes? I love the car despite these issues/dislikes but thought I would share... I know some of my complaints are software related but still, some of these should have been addressed already. Let's start: 1. The AC really SUCKS. It takes forever to...

    Plaid Vibration around 38-42MPH....

    Yep, I have the issue.. I thought it was the road at first and then I thought I had lane departure on warning, but I only feel it on the gas pedal. I cant really feel it in the wheel. Its one of those things that is probably more noticeable for some than others.. If this was a $25-30k car I...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Here is my quick first impressions: It's been a long day and my brain is liquified on so many levels. First I will start out by saying, the moment you sit inside a refresh S, its instantly noticeable how much better the build quality is. The car is like a sound studio, you cant hear anything...

    Also, that’s why they leave the model year off the car until you get a VIN. My white interior will be a 2022 model year

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    As of 2020, Tesla starts the next model year in October. My model Y was delivered October 17th of 2020 and is a 2021 model year. This is new, the year before they started it January 1st.

    So apparently my Delivery center is super short staffed and I stopped by today after receiving a call from the operations manager that they won’t be able to deliver the car until Tuesday. I found it all wrapped up but checked it out and all the panel gaps were tight. Hoping the rest of it is...

    Congrats on the car! Mine was also suppose to arrive yesterday, they were supposed to text me but all I got was crickets. I am headed over there in a few hours to take your approach as I would never expected that to work! Were you told it was arriving on the 13th ahead of time? You are so...

    Do you guys just go to the delivery center the day the vehicle comes in and just hang out until they give it to you? I’m about ready to do that tomorrow like jebinc just did. They told me 2-3 days to inspect it but I can’t imagine it will take that long. Last time I got a Tesla I had a...

    Dude. That sucks! That is like waking up xmas morning and finding Santa dead with no toys. Maybe they can fix it there. But If they can’t, they will probably assign you a new VIN and the process of waiting and logistics are terrible these days. Keep us posted!!

    I purchased a model Y about 9 months ago and used a personal check to pay. I asked if that was ok for the Plaid and they said no personal check but cashiers check is fine.
  33. jeffdom1978

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    What kind of issues?? Did you pay before you picked it up? If so, that’s another reason not to pre-pay and just bring a cashiers check

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    Ordered 1/27 the Trifecta of screwed overness: Red/White/CF EST delivery November 25- December 15th. Luckily I have a Red, Black Woody coming next week! But I will sell it when this baby comes in. Can't beat Tesla White interiors! I guess I'll survive a few months with this crummy black. lol

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Mine also now shows August 12-15th, I emailed my rep and he said it is due into Chicago tomorrow and will take them a day or two to inspect and get it ready for delivery. I bet ours are on the same truck/Train. I am picking up in Schaumburg, where are you?
  37. jeffdom1978

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    You really should check Progressive, only $150 more every 6 month for my Plaid versus my 2018 75D. I’d say that’s a win! Also check Geico! Allstate, State Farm are the worst!

    I got a VIN on August 3rd. I got the please make final payment email that day also, my delivery time frame is August 10-16th, so today through next week and yesterday I got a text asking if I wanted to trade in my current Model S. Still no ETA on actual delivery... Would think soon??

    Thats what I did, ordered the same color but got Black/wood and got a VIN 2 weeks later.. Supposed to pick up later this week!

    Red/Black/wood, I ordered this one because I was tired of waiting and heard that white was delayed until Sept/Oct or later.

    Well just got the email to complete my payment and checked my account and of course I got a VIN for the Plaid I ordered in July with Black interior. So now the decision to pay the extra $10k and pick up this one. I’m debating on just buying this one and selling it when the white interior...

    After seeing what people are paying for Plaids for sale on different channels, one could probably buy their 2nd choice, drive around for a month and sell for price of new! Its a crazy used market out there!

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    So apparently I drunk ordered another Plaid last night.. Instead of white interior I chose black with the ebony wood & 21's. This order said October/November to start and now it says "August" while my original order is blank... Should be interesting

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    If you want a Plaid with dark color and wood, willing to pay current retail price, you may be able to get one within 2-3 weeks. Otherwise, I would imagine first or second week of September for 90% of people on here waiting. Nothing is going to happen until maybe mid- August but those with white...

    Tesla did say that whoever ordered a Model S before the January refresh announcement would receive their cars first, which is mainly holding true, give or take.
