    Today's Roadster Orphan

    The Mecum audience has not been very supportive of EVs. Don't be surprised if the reserve is not met.

    Roadster 1.5 clicking noise from the front

    If they replaced the bushings with polyurethanes, that will account for the squeaking. Dish soap should quiet them down.

    Brake disc specs?

    Unfortunately in socal we don't deal with wet. I've used the EBC Yellows for years on on my 76 Jag as well. Very happy with them. Never tried the carbotech.

    Best charging practice/set up for a Roadster (1.5 in North America in specifically)

    My OVMS unit connects at home via WIFI and alerts me on my iPhone app of any problems. Also alerts me at the start and end of every charge cycle. I can see it wherever I am as located as long as I have service.

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    Thank you Nybob for the excellent directions. I had to figure mine out myself as there's no documentation with board. The only challenge I experienced is that the new board does not have an ANT3 post, but rather a ANT2 post in a different location. Once I figured that out everything went...

    Open Vehicle Monitor System (OVMS) - Technical Discussion

    Since the rollover to 5g and the discontinuation of 3g this week, I have noticed intermittent connectivity with my OVMS app. Do I need to upgrade my Hologram Sim card? I believe the current one is 3g. Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Friend on Limited Income wants to buy a roadster - give me the good, bad and ugly

    I turned 76 yesterday and I consider my Roadster to be part of my daily exercise program. I may be 76 in calendar years, but I don't feel a day over 40! A man is only as old as the car he's driving!

    Carbotech Brake compound thoughts

    I use the EBC Yellow pads on my 2010 Sport and love them. I live up in the hills, and need something that does not need heat before it starts working. Seems as though my pads/rotors are always cold due to regenerative braking.

    Single-DIN non-flip-out CarPlay headunit for Roadster 1.5?

    I have the Pioneer AVH-3500NEX single din unit with the flip out screen. I used my trusty Dreml to cut off 1/8" from the outer end of the wiper stalk and glued the end cap back on. You cannot see the modification and the screen opens and closes with no conflict. Works great. Only drawback is...

    Service in socal (orange county)

    You could probably pay Javier to come to you and remove your PEM, and then come back to replace it.

    Odometer screen fades in sunlight

    I have one of these "Shower Caps" that I put on whenever I park my roadster outside. Takes two minutes to put on or take off. It totally protects my roadster's interior. https://www.inokinetic.com/eliseexige/shower-cap-page

    Error 272

    Thank you. That's what I think. However, the error message has not returned. I think it may have been the result of too much condensation from running the a/c on high with two of the vents closed. Keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't come back.

    Error 272

    Got this message yesterday after removing key: "Powertrain Problem Restart When Safe" Error Code 272 - BSM: PEM HVAC cable/pin discharge failure. Does anyone have experience with this? I could not find any discussions on the Roadster Forum regarding this error. I had been running the A/C on...

    What have you done to your Roadster today (or lately)...

    I installed a Pioneer AVH-3500 NEX in my Roadster and I used my trusty Dreml cutoff wheel to remove about 3/16" from the outer end of the stalk and then glued the end cap back onto the end. No clearance problems. Can't see any surgical scars.

    Should I trade my 21 window Volkswagen bus for a roadster?

    I had a '61 VW Bus and now I have a 2010 Roadster Sport. If memory serves me correctly, I think the Roadster has slightly faster acceleration.

    Single DIN Radio Options

    I'm happy with the screen -- except in bright sunlight. But very happy with the sound. I chose the fold away screen because I keep the top down most of the time, and think a ever-present screen would be an invitation to vandals.

    Single DIN Radio Options

    I went with the Pioneer 3500 and am very pleased with it. I used my Dreml cutoff wheel to take 1/8" off the wiper stalk and the screen clears with no problem. On very hot days I'll retract the screen so the a/c vents are not obstructed. The sound is awesome.

    Custom Tesla Roadster 2-Piece Slotted Rotors, NEW batch for 2020

    When I bought my 913 two years ago the rotors were covered with rust. I immediately replaced the pads with EBC Yellowstuff. These are street/drift/race pads which do not require heat buildup to work. After 500 miles the noise was gone along with the rust. I haven't seen any rust since, and I...

    This looks like it is the Xenon upgraded unit. Medlock or Gruber should be able to provide you with the correct info or even sell you the bulb.

    Parting Out Roadster Sport 945

    To clarify the above post, I bought those parts from Moe and Brent back in December for my Roadster Sport 2.0 #913. These are great guys to deal with. Just bought the windscreen wiper switch from them today.

    Need help with Radio install

    I spliced in the new Pioneer harness. That way I have a color-coded road map for any future upgrades. I just hopw that the SC will continue to service the car with a non-Tesla harness. Once again, thank you.

    Got it done with many thanks to drewski. I have no idea why Tesla did not color code their wires. Everyone was b/w b/grey. Or at least use the JVC harness.

    Need help with Radio install

    Thank you all for your input. For whatever reason, Tesla decided to have all the speaker leads on my car in grey/black and white/black. I'll need some sort of audio signal generator to suss them out. Or just have Javier complete the install. It's bizarre that NONE of the wires follow any...
