    What's your predicted loyalty to Tesla whenever replacing current car?

    I sold my 2020 MSP in February to downsize a bit (financially). I test drove a MY and just didn’t love it (ride, darty handling, and absence of ventilated seats). I couldn’t justify the ~$57k to buy it new. I am interested in the new MX but now it’s delayed until next year. I am picking up a 6...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Realize I’m just a tire kicker and I didn’t place a refresh MX order... I sold my 2020 MSP back in February so I am familiar with the outgoing cars / features. I am picking up a 6 seat 2021 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring for now and will give Tesla and competitors a few more years to work this out...

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Was waiting to see what happens with the X (haven’t ordered) but don’t think I’m willing to wait until 2022. Also not willing to deal with the recent price increases on the Y. I’m going to test drive a Mazda CX-9 in the next few days.

    Model Y SR factory installed hitch bike rack recommendations

    Kuat Transfer was my original choice last year but then I ended up with a Rockymounts Monorail: https://rockymounts.com/products/monorail-2.html I had it on an S, not Y, but it’s a great rack.

    Refreshed 2021+ Model X and Model X Plaid waiting room

    Interested in comparing a refresh MX 7-seater to a MY 7-seater when the refresh is finally available. My big question is if the refresh MX will come with a 2” tow hitch like they used to...

    Model S Trailer Hitch Installation

    I just installed mine too. I’ve had a heck of a time trying to actually buy a hitch rack this year!

    Are mudflap options available for the Model S?

    Thanks! I just pulled the rear bumper off my car and installed a hitch last weekend so I’m not worried about installation. I’m more worried about final aesthetics. Looking forward to seeing pics!

    Are mudflap options available for the Model S?

    Did you get these yet? I’m intrigued but worried they would look out of place on a white car. I am getting tired of scrubbing tar off the doors and right behind the rear wheels.

    I have: 21" Model S turbines (staggered) in grey with good tires (OEM Michelin PSS - fronts are 80% and rears have less than 5,000 miles); no curb rash; wheel faces are ceramic coated; there is some slight peeling of the clearcoat on the back lip of one of the wheels I want: 19" Model S wheels...

    Financing rates

    Back in the day I used them to get a 1.39% rate with this same promotion and then had Lightstream match it. Too bad Lightstream doesn't match secured loans anymore... But yes, they are legit if you are a federal employee or contractor.

    What is this interior door trim piece called?

    No, it's a 2020. I think it got beat up from my wedding ring because I was putting my phone in the little pocket there. Thanks for the reply! Where is the parts catalog online?

    Sonic Carbon color change--Photos of silver/white Model S with Sonic Carbon slipstream wheels

    Much better now (also after swapping to summer wheels)! You are right though, I didn't do the interior. :D

    What is this interior door trim piece called?

    Mine is all dinged up (see pic). How much is a new one or should I just get both sides wrapped with vinyl?

    Supercharger - Darien CT Rest Area

    Thanks, the trip went okay considering I made it where I was going within a reasonable amount of time. I'm thinking about driving the whole way to Sunday River in ME this Summer for the New England Forest Rally. I wish the Bethel, ME supercharger was up and running, but it seems like Sunday...

    Does anyone else have trouble buckling in Child Seats?

    I did a bunch of test fitting and my results are near the end of this thread: New owner— Best booster seat? My 7 (almost 8) year old has no problem but my 5 (almost 6 now) year old struggled back in December. I’m about to move her over to a booster soon as she did better in one on a recent road...

    distance between superchargers

    Please leave yourself some reserve just in case a supercharger doesn’t work when you get there. It happened to me a few weeks ago in Connecticut, USA.

    Tesla Certified Bodyshop Recommendation in the DC Area

    First service experience - 2020 Model S Performance

    My experience was very similar to OP. It wasn’t egregiously bad but it’s also pretty lackluster for a company selling $100k cars. East coast USA here, in MD.

    Supercharger - Darien CT Rest Area

    Thanks, it’s nice to have that context from your experience. This was my first long distance trip that required multiple charges and there was definitely some anxiety about superchargers being full or unavailable and not matching status in the nav.

    Supercharger - Darien CT Rest Area

    I chose to drive to the NB supercharger on 15 since it was closer and I was already below 10% SOC. That was my choice but we’re getting into the philosophical realm now. What I expected to find based on the in-car navigation system was a functioning v3 supercharger. What I found was a...

    Supercharger - Darien CT Rest Area

    Well, I was going back home to MD and arrived with 9% charge, so not enough where I was comfortable to try and get through NYC. Stamford was listed as a 75kWh max charger, slow. I had no confidence that any of the v3 chargers including Darien NB would work after another report of issues from a...

    Supercharger - Darien CT Rest Area

    Tried to charge here (southbound) and it would not charge my 2020 MSP at all. I tried 3 different stalls. We had to detour north to Rt. 15 to continue and will circle back around. Annoying.

    Failed to turn on climate

    I experienced it in an earlier build and suggestions were a good long sleep for the car via the “power off” button in the menus. My issue has not returned since then.
