    'clunk' sound when descelerating

    Hi all, Since last week I have a clunky (imagine throwing a heavy bolt into a metal paperbasket lined with paper towel) sound when the gas pedal is released and regen engages. There also may be a slight clunk when regen is switched back to accelerating. Not loud but noticeable. Opinions...

    About time to unveil the D and something else

    yes, the letter D printed on the announcement artwork uses the same font as the P as in Model S P85 another datum is that the Model S car pictured on the announcement, behind the half-opened garage door, is hidding something just above the hood (or is it?) now there could be, as "leaked" by...

    MyTesla phone app - can't connect

    Tesla (iPhone) app working this afternoon :smile: I can go back to park at DD, get me a large coffee, get confy on a table overlooking the car, play quizzUp, patiently wait until some teenagers get really close, calculate timing/response.... and then honk the horn :rolleyes: (it never gets old)

    Taking apart the side mirror assembly - looking for help

    wow, @flodrab, I wish somebody in NYC could do my side mirrors like that! To the detailers I went it seemed really hard without taking them apart (and they did not know how to). Cheers! Cal

    EZ Pass Transponder Advice

    I ordered ( and installed) a license-plate-mount EZ Pass transponder. Did not want the risk of a windshield-mount transponder not transponding in a rainy day or when I am in a rush.

    Roll-up leather dog paw and luggage scratch protection for rear bumper

    nice looking lab there! I also carry a (heavy) wheelchair in and out the trunk and risk the rear bumper how wonderful it would be to be able to buy such a protective apron :smile:

    National network of approved installers for after-market Model S mods

    Hey Artsci, I think the 'approved installers' is good idea. I would definitely use them.

    Help Planning! Long Island-Tupper Lake NY... trip

    Hi fellow teslarians, I have to go (roundtrip) from Long Island NY to Tupper Lake NY, and stay there three days. :crying: Getting a mild case of hypo-range-o-phobia already, specially traveling with a 10 year old kid. Specially because Tupper Lake is in the middle of the Adirondack forest...

    Road noise at highway speeds coming from wheel wells

    @zapped, sorry for the lengthy delay I did not have the inside of the doors hushmatted, but instead inside the trunk by the sides, wheel wells. Maybe is a DIY if you know where exactly to install it. The material itself is just peel and stick, but I had it professionally done because I guessed...

    Should one tip at a carwash?

    it is advance insurance too, imho, unless you plan to never return I am sure they remember me (or at least the car?) because I tip well; I love to supervise their work on my car, and my car gets better service than the cars of the non-tippers (but otoh they save 3 dollars anyway...) and, on a...

    Frunk Dent (Frustrating...)

    at the car wash I have to be extra careful to close the frunk myself as soon as they finish cleaning and detailing it there is a high susceptibility for dysfrunkia due to the design, I reckon, hope it is corrected in future versions of the MS and ideally that we can retrofitted to our "older"...

    Should one tip at a carwash?

    Of course I tip. Exactly as you are supposed to tip at the restaurant. I take the Tesla to a hand wash joint ("FiveCorners the Original Hand Wash", at the Hillside/Marcus/Denton intersection), New Hyde Park NY. The guys take special care of my car -because I tip well- and dress the tires with...

    Road noise at highway speeds coming from wheel wells

    @Zapped, I did not take photos during the install (and I know the risk, no picture = no hushmat) but it is true, lol. They installed a lot of it in all the problem areas reported in the forums (vg. wheel wells). I can point you to the HushMat manufacturer website. To me it is a great product...

    Road noise at highway speeds coming from wheel wells

    The car we test drove at the mall (first model S driving experience) was a P85 with 20" tires. The car was very loud at highway speeds, I don't know why. We chose 19" inch Primacy, then liberally added HushMat to all areas suspicious of transmitting road noise into the cabin. Result is great...

    Where to get brake calipers painted red (or any other color)?

    @SteveWandthelongnumber, yes and yes, the only difficult part (for me) was to cut apart each 'tesla' word from the small sheet, they come on (very very close to each other) btw, the name is caloncho

    Reply to Thread red button problems

    @everybody guys please continue the red button's technical, philosophic, semantic and linguistic nitpicking on this very location. It has really eliminated the need for late night melatonin for at least three of us forum users.

    Where to get brake calipers painted red (or any other color)?

    @artsci, I had my calipers painted in my small local auto detailer shop. Charged about two hundred buckaroos but worth every penny. Painter was extremely carefull to get a brilliant tesla-red color. My calipers stand out now. Decals to be applied as soon as they arrive (according to tracking...

    Mobileye 560

    Personally LOVE the Mobileye. Added it for safety not coolness. It is as loud as it is supposed to be. It's saving your life! Of course the loud beep could be replaced with viable options like an extremely brief 220v jolt on the butt delivered by the seat? Well, to tell the truth I added it for...

    Prolong battery life strategies

    @SeattleRock congratulations on your order! I was told during delivery to try and keep it over 20% and under 90%. in real life my battery stays between 50% and 80% most of the time.
