    #34 Salvage auction

    for low (unit) volume applications, i'd consider using one of the variants of 3M flourinert as the cooling fluid. i've previously utilized it as a pressure compensation liquid (in conjunction with a bellows) for the electronics compartment of an deep sea oceanographic instrument i...

    acceptable to post parts for sale in the general roadster forum to avoid using panjo?

    i have a number of roadster parts to sell but the parts for sale forum takes you to a selling partner (panjo.com) which both messed with my photos and also requires that you set a price where i just want to more informally list the items and have folks make offers. i guess the alternative is to...

    compatibility question: 2.0 roadster (with single DIN radio) and iPhone 5s?

    i looked at a couple of older threads about 2.5 roadster compatibility but did not get a clear sense of what worked and what did not work. can someone tell me if i replace the original 30-pin cable that came with my roadster with the newer lightning connector cable, which (if any) of the...

    Tire Monitor Problem

    tesla has replaced sensors and antennas multiple times on my 2.0. the TPMS system on the 1.5 is different than that used on the 2.0/2.5. the 1.5 TPMS is (generally reported to be) reliable. the 2.0/2.5 is not. they are both built by the same company.

    Tire Monitor Problem

    i have to get my 2.0 roadster serviced approximately once a month to deal with intermittent TPMS errors. very frustrating. i have been told by a knowledgeable tesla employee that there are no problems with the 1.5 TPMS systems. (apparently the earlier models have the race version of the TPMS...

    2.0 / 2.5 Roadster / Roadster Sport Tire Thread

    has anyone tried the MPS PS2 ZP? after having had one flat tire, the lack of a spare of any sort makes the run-flat idea somewhat appealing. i'd be willing to trade some rolling resistance for increased peace of mind.

    Clear hardtop on EBay

    Double DIN upgrade released

    my understanding was that the roadster paint was intentionally not hard but rather relatively soft in order to accommodate the flex of the CF body panels.

    and i definitely fall into the category of someone who bought a sports car as a side effect of wanting a long range EV in 2010. i also live in the city so the model S is simply too large to be convenient. thus i am "stuck" with trying to civilize the roadster beyond its design intent. i...
