    RI REF Grant? [Rhode Island Renewable Energy Fund]

    I agree. Feels like it was something they approved to benefit certain local/regional companies.

    RI REF Grant? [Rhode Island Renewable Energy Fund]

    I wanted to ask what they meant by default and why it required manufacturer input in order to get a grant that is ultimately an incentive for customers but I decided against it. I would just get some BS answer that would annoy me further. There's always a catch with these programs.

    RI REF Grant? [Rhode Island Renewable Energy Fund]

    Just got this from REF advisor. Thoughts?

    Tesla colorizer not working on 2014 Model S

    I'm hoping this is just an oversight. As others have eluded to, this shouldn't be a limitation on our older vehicles. Keeping fingers crossed that we get a fix soon, acknowledging that this is annoying but not necessary.

    Tesla colorizer not working on 2014 Model S

    Agreed. 8+ years strong (Dec 2013 build) with my Model S. Not going to upgrade anytime soon. I'll just wait until that upgrade eventually is forced upon me and I'll be in the boys club again with the cool new tricks.

    Tesla colorizer not working on 2014 Model S

    I'm in the same boat. 2013 Model S with MCU 2 Hopefully this isn't another example of Tesla "showing the middle finger to original owners", as someone so elegantly put it.

    Supercharger - Warwick, RI

    I also think it's an employee car. It's there often.

    Supercharger - Warwick, RI

    Update: Lines and meter are connected. I didn't have a chance to test if it's live.

    Supercharger - Warwick, RI

    Make a new thread for NP and provide updates, if you're able. Everytime I round the Post/Airport Rd corner, I hope to see the lines and meter connected here in Warwick. These new SC locations are so overdue.

    Supercharger - East Greenwich, RI - 1149 Division St.

    The limb has a decent diameter not captured in the photo. I wouldn't try to move it.

    Supercharger - East Greenwich, RI - 1149 Division St.

    Fallen tree branches is blocking 2 stalls, maybe a third if you'd be too close to the branches and scratch your car. So, subtract that amount from the available list until someone can confirm this has been cleared.

    Supercharger - Warwick, RI

    Just a quick update. As of this afternoon, the meter has yet to be installed. My assumption is that recent inclement weather has not helped the timeline for this SC to become operational. Status: "Soon".

    Supercharger - Warwick, RI

    Not yet. Seekonk is up and running and on the app for a few days now, so that's a good sign. I saw a utility truck parked in the spaces in Warwick and got excited, only to find out it was a plumbing truck ICEing. Lol I am going to drive in tomorrow morning to check again. Hard to see from the...

    Supercharger - Warwick, RI

    You can actually see the missing meter at Neon in Warwick. I drive by almost everyday and notice it missing. "Soon" is the appropriate answer :)

    Supercharger - Warwick, RI

    I've been checking my app to see if it lists Warwick as a location yet with availability info. Do you guys believe it's likely the site will go live before Tesla shows it as available in app or website?

    Rhode Island needs more Superchargers

    I live near the Neon Marketplace in Warwick. I have been visiting the East Greenwich Supercharger location for over 7 years. The Warwick location is better located near two regularly used highways (I'm aware EG is near I-95 and 4). Warwick location is just off I-95 and Rt 37 which connects a...

    Rhode Island needs more Superchargers

    Neon Marketplace location will be open soon. Corner of Airport and Post Rd in Warwick. Near I-95S exit 13 and Rt 37 off/on ramps.

    Drive Unit Version

    12/2013 build S85 65k miles Second DU replacement. Easy on car, garaged. Had iso failure, car drove fine before failure and drove fine to the service appt. ASY,P-TRAIN,RMN,MDLS,BASE,CMC,HS,FA2+(1025276-00-Q) Feels more powerful but I'm not sure because my loaner was an X on Chill mode...

    Car Squeaking when coming to complete stop (only with 21" Performance Wheels)

    Came across this video from a youtuber I follow. He talks about possible corrosion of some of the caliper hardware from certain wheel cleaners. Still uncertain as to why I dont get this with my 19s but maybe it's part of the problem. I am still getting the noise just before full stops and...

    Car Squeaking when coming to complete stop (only with 21" Performance Wheels)

    I've always kept standard on. One of the suggestions from service was to run Low Regen with the 21s, or just in general every once in a while for proper rotor wear. Car is going on 6 years old with 60k on original rotors and brakes. I'll report back if I notice anything but this is really...

    Car Squeaking when coming to complete stop (only with 21" Performance Wheels)

    @Navsarin Do you run standard or low regen?

    Car Squeaking when coming to complete stop (only with 21" Performance Wheels)

    Just got mine back from service. They could not replicate it. I emphasized that it ONLY happens on 21s. I've been driving 19s for over 5 years and never had this. The tech had some good guesses as to the change, like "larger rolling mass" due to the 21s and causing the car to rock back...

    Car Squeaking when coming to complete stop (only with 21" Performance Wheels)

    @ahkahn It's not the brake "sticking" to rotors when wet. It's a different sound (like an old piece of furniture or door hinge). Watch the video of the sound recording.

    Car Squeaking when coming to complete stop (only with 21" Performance Wheels)

    @BrokerDon I have a non performance and usually run 19s. Never get it with my 19s. The mystery appears to be with those that usually run 19s and occasionally install their 21s.

    Car Squeaking when coming to complete stop (only with 21" Performance Wheels)

    Tried disabling Creep and messing around with regen. Trying to get a different result/sound. No change. The suggestion about possibly lowering the air pressure is interesting but I dont want to trade that for the sound, in the event that it does work. I'm bummed about this. Will report back...
  29. ShibbyRomes

    Car Squeaking when coming to complete stop (only with 21" Performance Wheels)

    It's not the brakes. Never happens with my 19s. I'm going to see if Service gives me the same explanation. However, the creep setting sounds interesting. I'll try messing around with that later.

    Car Squeaking when coming to complete stop (only with 21" Performance Wheels)

    This is exactly what's happening to me. 2013 Model S on springs, no air suspension. I've used 19in since new and NEVER got this noise. Got Arachnids from Tesla and the noise came on. Thought it was brakes or maybe wasnt torqued correctly. This is my second season with the wheels. I just put...

    DIY Diffusion Wrap for old DRL

    Has anyone come across a product that will diffuse an older Model S (pre facelift) DRL? I know of the company that offers this and also includes the option to paint the inside of the light assembly. However, it is quite pricey and I'd have to ship my lights or source new ones to ship to them...

    Any suggestions/experience in the Southern New England area (RI, south of boston). My 2013's original 19s are looking rough.

    Model S Tetris Game

    I would love tetris. Would be much easier to control with the touch screen than the other games in my S.

    IIHS: New Tesla Model 3 Reflector Headlights Improve Car’s Safety

    He knows me. We go back 65 years. That's why he can post that I'm not a car person. I don't own cars, just Teslas.

    Forgot to ask, what month/year is your build? When did they stop the dash Alcantara?

    Doesn't the windshield need to be removed in order to do this?

    Acceleration Reduced.... new problem

    Happened to me yesterday. I dont believe it has to do with supercharging as I have not supercharged in a while. Tesla Ownership also mentioned "never seeing this". Weird since I think the original post was over 2 years ago. Anyhow, 2013 S85 46k miles. Luckily (or unluckily) I had an appointment...

    New Englanders -- check in!

    Warwick, RI here. Vin 276XX. Loving my Model S. The snow has been limiting use, however.
