    Carbon Fiber Rims

    While we are waiting for the ESE ...looking at alternatives. I have found pricing for the BMW M carbon wheels (aprox 10.000£) accordng to this site: BMW M4 GTS review - more than twice the price of a regular M4, but is it worth it? Looking up the BMW M4 wheel specs - there is a centerbore at...

    Lifetime Average Wh/mi

    this happen also to me once a month or so. usually I can identfy this as a data communicating problem (e.g. if the 3g does not work) I have even experinced where the console screen was so locked that the instrument cluster came up with a "console needs service" but all cleared up when i once...

    Carbon Fiber Rims

    How long do brake pads last?

    first thing I did when i got my tesla #2 was to apply anti rust grease/spray on the brakesystem (as well as other exposed areas near wheels/under frunk) I know i shouldent but it has worked well and it brakes just as good as ever. i suspect this will prevent rust and result in longer life of...

    Carbon Fiber Rims

    as a anti theft prevention a rfid chip build into the wheels seems like a good idea (as on the GT350), especially when consider the price for them. this would significant lower the aftermarked value. those who buy these wheels should reqest this from the manufactor.

    Carbon Fiber Rims

    those carbon rotors seems expensive. afaik tesla uses bremo brakes, seems like bremo also makes a 2 pice tesla caramic 'grand turismo' kit at total 7900$ for rear+front. still expensive, but half the price compared to racingbrake.com I have not checked what weight savings to expect, and if the...

    Carbon Fiber Rims

    imagine what would happen if not only the wheels was changed to carbon, but also the brake rotors was replaced with carbon. unsprung rotating mass would go even further down. the specail model s called saleen does ships with carbon brakeing discs, so it must be posible to have then replaced.

    bubbles on touchscreen

    if it is not going to bee fixed on warrenty. then I would wait as long as it still works. at some point there will be a new faster MCU with nvidas newer chip. it make sence to wait until this is availble and make the swap at that time.

    Real scare with Autosteer!

    It had to come, and I guess it will not be last time we hear something like this. I decided last week that I would stop "Beta" testing on every road posible, not that I have had any scary moment, but I could see something like you describe coming. Tesla should never have called this...

    P85D shock issue (air suspension)

    isent there something about the suspension design was changed around late marts 2015, mine p85d are build before (stiffer + suspenssion) and I have not had the problem. it might only affect cars build from april - july 2015 ? or like. could this be comfirmed.

    [updated with *] P85D 691HP should have an asterisk * next to it.. "Up to 691HP"

    I admit im no expert in dyno tech. But whould like to know wich numbers to expect from a 700 hk awd ice on a dyno ? Does it matter if it distribute the power unequal (not 50/50 but more like. 66/33) - the p85d have a smaller front motor and will not pull as hard on the front wheel. If the dyno...

    85D, but this calculation shows the capacity is 68kwh only, what's wrong?

    take a look at the picture posted her Rated Range for 85 kWh battery | Forums | Tesla Motors is is the picture in the post from 19. december by ampedrealtor. it should pretty much explain why you can not use all 85 kwh for driving purpose. the battery is almost half the value of the car, so...

    Vampire drain a considerable cost on the long run

    in denmark electricity is more expensive due to taxes. the same calculation will sum at 1600$ over 5 years. 2,5 kwh/day * 2,4 dkr/ kwh = 6 dkr/ day ( almost a dollar per day).

    90KWH Battery Current / Voltage and degradation vs 85KWH

    the cell in the linked sheet (BF) seams to have same capacity as the (B) cell. so doubt this is the cell - it is though a litle lighter and could potential give the pack a higher capacity. that require tesla to build a new pack with more # cells in the pack ( not likely). with the same weigth...

    New P90D does 1/4 mile in 10.8 and 0-60 in 2.8s. Question: Does P85D get any love?

    Heavy rains in Missouri. Free shower from my pano roof.

    best solution would be if tesla made a new option wich is a permanent pano roof. witch can not be opened. this way we could still have the airiness and at same time no leeks. this colud also save some weight and complexity - and even the price colud be lower.

    D owners: When does current limiting occur?

    Could it be temperature related. ? it might be that your battery is warmed up after driving X miles (aprox 50% SOC) Others might never see this battery temperature due to lower outside temperature. e.g I did never see this in my P85 - but I live in denmark where temperature rearly goes above...

    Wipers-is ther a way to adjust so they cover more area?

    Model S have a 4-5" untouched gap on the drivers side. this is by design... very annoying. tesla should have fixed this long time ago. I have fixed this by applying Alaska HD nanocoat on the windscreen (and the car) - this way I don't need to use the whipers at all.

    Model S: Alarm system and dimming mirrors?

    New regen profile for P85D?

    partly agree. at pressent they have a setting for "regen low" or "regen high" they just need to make a slider with options like "insane", "fast", "normal" or "slow" regen mode.

    Tesla Model S - expected lifespan? 5-10-15 years.....

    count/calculate no more than 16 years - anything beyond is pure luck. don't count on it - or at leat do not make any financial plans according to it. I would in fact say 16 years is streching beyond resenble sense.. it will also depend on when/how you use the car, how meny miles you run per...

    I haven't sat in the NG backseats yet. but I did try a demo here in europe wich had the new Classic rear seats. The new Classic rear seats have higher headrest compared to the old Classic/performance seats, I asume same hight as the NG rear seats. So headrest hight are the same regardless of...

    Next-gen REAR seats no longer available for new orders, please post feedback on yours

    Old performance seats were quite nice, and loved them - both front and back, so they are absolutely fine seats. Back seats could tough have been more reclined by an inch or 2. Im going to hold on to my next gen rear seats order - lay flat or not doesent matter. I paid extra for the next gen...

    Autopilot parking available now?

    True, but "only" 4 in front and 4 in the back are used as parking range sensors on the dash screen (afaik). I belive the 4 on the sides give feedback to the autopilot software (and maybe collision avoidance software later on).

    First of all, I have yet to drive a 4wd Tesla. But during driving my P85 I did enjoy how a backwheel drived car handled - comming around a corner and strighten the car with the "gass" pedal was pure fun. I asume this is not the same in a 4 whel drive car where the fun is in the curve, not...

    New(ish) front seats - how much did it cost?

    Im not shure there is a diference beside the hight of headrest, if there is it is marginal - recently I sad in a September 2014 car with new (old) style seats (those with higher headrests) - and I belive it was a litle firmer compared with my own "old" performance seats - but could be due to it...

    Revision F Battery Pack?

    Most likely newer revs are due to battery swap stations are being build. This is rather new tech for model s, and might need minor adjustments to the battery pack to work smooth.
