    WTB: 19" Cyclone wheel for 2015 85D

    Just the regular silver. There are lots of full sets available but I might have a local line on one, will let you know, thank you. I see the full new Arachnid sets have really come down, $2200-$2400 brand new sets around here.

    WTB: 19" Cyclone wheel for 2015 85D

    Went to Costco to have the tires replaced and on one of the wheels, they found a crack on the inside. There are always some deals on eBay that come along but ideally, someone in the Bay Area I could drive to would be great. Only one wheel needed unless it's a killer deal on a set. Cyclone...

    My S85D and Tesla life at 50K miles

    Sheesh, we are all in the same boat. October 2015 S85D with about 36k miles. Also in the Bay Area and AP1 was worth the price of the car itself for me. Any time I'm in any other car it's like going back in time and un-drivable now. I love it. Not perfect, but for my 30mi each way to work...

    Software Update 2018.24.1 12dd099

    I don't get it - if your whole driving route is in grey, is there any way to tell the traffic conditions along your route? When I start getting into traffic I like to look down and see if the slowdown is short or if it's only the start of getting bad. From the screen shot above, you can't see...

    Tesla: The real out of warranty costs

    What a great video. I have a 2015 and I've been holding my breath, I haven't had a single problem of any kind beyond some dash squeaks that were fixed. I'm 30k in for miles so far and after reading this thread, I'm terrified to go out of warranty.

    WTB 19” Gray Slipstream Wheels

    Oops - you are totally right, just looked at my window sticker. "19" Cyclone wheels $2500". Don't they look almost identical to the new standard 19" wheel or am I missing the differences?

    WTB 19” Gray Slipstream Wheels

    I have the silver 19" turbines which almost nobody else has and they were a $3500 option at the time (2015). You could take the newer stock wheels which are almost identical and powercoat them.

    Selling Arachnid Wheels, Directly from Tesla

    Might be a little speedy, they are going for $3500 on here and sitting, a few people on her bought new sets on eBay for $1200 and $1500, which were of course outliers.

    San Jose to Kirkwood Mountain Resort Charge Plan 70D

    Can't help you at Kirkwood, but for the rest: Depends on the route you take up there. I drive up to South Lake frequently (from the peninsula) with an 85D. I have to stop in Barstow on the way up there for sure, no way I could make it otherwise. On the way back I can make it from South Lake...

    Suddenly better AP2 performance / faster maps on 2017.44?

    The mapping speed could just be from improved cellular service in the area you drive. I believe Tesla is using AT&T so it could be capacity was increased along your route?

    FS: Brand New 21" Silver Arachnid Wheels and Tires

    When people have these, can they be picked up at any service center or does the seller have to be present? I'd love to jump on a set of these but driving 16 hours or dealing with shipping isn't desirable. Well, unless I get one of those new $1200 or $1500 sets people are getting off eBay. :)

    Current 10 busiest Superchargers, worldwide

    Can confirm in Hong Kong as I'm there frequently for work - Teslas are everywhere (almost always the lower battery packs) and most everyone street parks or otherwise can't charge at home so the Superchargers are the only way to go.

    Tesla and Spotify

    I'm a big Spotify fan and no, don't think you can. I've had to just run it on my phone and bluetooth the the car, which sounds and works great but I'd love to have it as a native app on the car. I've heard that in Europe they use Spotify, not sure what the resistance to having it in the US...

    Supercharger for South Lake Tahoe

    Pictures or it didn't happen! :) Just returned from there yesterday, didn't think to check if one was open yet. Had a 40A charger installed in my house there and electricity is pretty reasonable (by bay area standards) and there isn't an on-peak or off-peak so you can house-charge anytime...

    2016 Model S 90D - Property Damage Claim Post Mortem

    Truckload of Teslas on Vroom

    The lady on the chat function on the Vroom site sent it via the chat window. Normally I'm good at rationalizing bad purchases but I couldn't think of any way a car having been stolen and gone long enough they filed it with the DMV, that it could come back without some kind of abuse.

    Most number of Teslas you were together on highway?

    I should take a picture of our parking lot at work, it easily matches any of the group pictures shared on here. No excitement for us when we see another Tesla, just "Oh man, I hope he doesn't get the last charger!"

    Interested in Selling Model 3?

    As a MS owner, I have no desire to be first in line for a brand new model. I'll keep driving my S and let a few years go by with refinements and corrections while everyone beta-tests it. Then I'll be able to get a P or D model that is pretty sorted out. It sounds like lots of people were...

    Yes, Hillsdale is doing a major expansion of the mall in San Mateo and has been working on it for over a year now, that's an easy one and will probably be like the mall in Folsom with charging bays in the parking garage. There is another planned on along El Camino further north in San Mateo...

    So there is a P90D on there for $100k, essentially my exact car, except a P90D. I passed a year ago on a blue one with all the options and 1800mi) from them for the same price and second-guessed myself about it, apparently, the price hasn't changed much. I couldn't view the vehicle history...

    Most number of Teslas you were together on highway?

    5 is still my record - I've been one of 5 in the carpool lanes driving to work and at an intersection, 5 others. There are easily 20+ in our smaller parking lot at work, I should take a picture sometime. At one point there were lots of Nisson Leafs but I think when their leases were up...

    Truckload of Teslas on Vroom

    I think there was someone from Texas Direct that posted on here a while back when they had a boatload of low-mile, newer ones on eBay too - they said that they had purchased them directly from Tesla, could be SC loaners. A lot of them were "one key, no floor mats" models, which sounds like they...
