    "Other...Updates" (to the Model S, aside from 'D')

    Perhaps they changed some of the sill parts along with the seats? One of the biggest complaints I get is the rear door opening.

    Tesla Certified Preowned program coming

    Are people eligible for the tax credit/rebates again? I bought my s85 in 2012 and I'm in CA. Trying to see how feasible it is to upgrade. The service center should be calling me shortly with a price.

    Did you try unplugging and plugging in the power from the wall? That works for me, it does happen ever once in a while. Also try wringling the power cable back JUST a tinge.

    Maybe I should just copy pasta that rant. Hahaha

    New Jalopnik hit piece? Fair and balanced?

    I really want to comment on the article, but I'd get way too angry to be coherent. It's just such a pile of garbage. My favorite part is how they claim how many deliveries there have been. Be transparent! Explain why Tesla didn't give you a car to test, or invite you to various press events...

    Have you met the 'i hate all things ev' guy yet?

    I take two approaches: 1: If they are just being ignorant, but respectful. I tell them that I hope they enjoy their gas car, im going to enjoy not spending money on it 2: If they are being a douche, totally unreasonable, and not listening to what you're saying. Suggest to them that we should...

    Random Model S sightings

    As a stock holder I am incredibly happy that I'm seeing AT LEAST 4-5 per day in "Tesla Valley" I'd really increase my post count if I posted every time I saw one. If you want to see one in the wild, go check out Eco green car wash on middlefield. They are frequently washing them! I'm going...

    Things you may not have discovered about your Model S?!

    Or you know, hold your cups... Anyone else surprised by the secondary headlights that turn on when making a turn in the direction you're turning? The physical lights are actually underneath the turn signals. It was a welcome addition, when turning they do make a difference!

    Consumer Reports takes delivery of their Model S

    Looks like their car has 19" wheels. The air suspension preview looked like they were on 21" wheels. Not sure if this was stock footage or not. Interested in their feedback. My review is simple: The Tesla Model S is the best car on the road. Period.
