    The market has changed. I’m in the market for a replacement Tesla. Let me know what you have.

    My insurance appraiser is quoting $23K to fixing this Model X. Is that accurate?

    No, body shop estimate will be significantly higher. Looks like a total loss. What unknown open items are on the estimate?

    ^ I have had to do this twice. There is a form to fill out, then email form with receipt. Takes a few week and a check shows up in the mail.

    M3P to MSLR 2 lane 55mph highway passing

    My ‘refresh’ “refresh” MSLR is a fantastic daily driver. I have put 17k miles on it since march. My wife took the car this week as she wanted the longer range vehicle for her trip, so I drove the M3P for a couple of days. The MSLR has a significantly better power curve and passing ability. I...

    RPM Tesla Updated Carbon Fiber Spoiler

    I also received a shipment notification. Slow shipping, but only because now our expectation is 1-2 days when we order something. Mine should be here Wednesday.

    RPM Tesla Updated Carbon Fiber Spoiler

    I ordered yesterday and I am supposed to have the car polished and coated tomorrow after several delays. I am considering waiting another week. The tape will bond better to a non coated surface. This is why in the video he uses rubbing alcohol and some elbow grease to prep.

    Are there new “hinges” to make it swivel?

    Wife isn’t happy with MY (have 2), what options?

    BMW X5 45e, the answer is keep the MY. But based on your post no other fully electric car would come close. Depending on how many miles are driven a day this would be the only logical choice.

    The old airplane mode or if needed full power off and on should do the trick.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I would say this is hit or miss. My car was made the week of the changes. Gate date 2/25/22. At first this concerned me after reading about the quality control issues. I was told that my car needed nothing when it arrived in Mi at the delivery center. It looked great, had all covers fobs...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    The AS tires are much better now than on the day of delivery. I have not noticed a noise difference. The MS is 10x quieter than the M3 and our MI concrete highways are really noisy.

    I thought this was a spot on post and a well written post until this line. I have had my car for a little over 2 weeks and 1,200 miles. It should only be driven in insane mode.. it is docile until you give it the go. My car has been in insane mode from delivery and will be left there as long...

    Used Set of OEM 20" Pirelli P-Zero 235/35ZR-20 (700 Miles) For Sale Toledo, Ohio

    I have busted, 6 of the Michelin PS4S’s on the potholes around here. Also cracked a 19” rim with a winter tires. It’s almost a “when” question not an if question. The concrete MI highways have been the biggest culprit. Asphalt in OH is much more forgiving.

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    I asked to keep the summer tires and that I would "dispose" of them. They said no, I was not allowed to keep them. The weather is 40 degrees and rainy which may be the reason the grip is noticeably less. The car does drive with less grip on these all seasons. I actually slid coming to a...

    I had my car in for service today to swap the summer tires for all season tires. I asked if they could update to the latest software. I was informed it had “factory” software and will update once a new software update is released.

    For those who have taken delivery, how long after delivery before the software updates? I’m on 2021.43.202 and the car is connected to Wi-Fi with advanced updates set as a preference. The app under service shows connect to Wi-Fi and the car shows that software is up to date. Also, what is the...

    PM3 to Model S LR or Plaid?

    We have 90k on the M3P, love the car. I have driven the P100d as a loaner (before they started locking all loaners in chill). I would take the M3P over the MS P100d everyday. The new MS is a huge upgrade, I have not driven a plaid to compare but I think you would be happy with it. It’s...

    On edit: my MS does not have radar and is vision only autopilot. I really like the updated headlights and taillights, but this horrible “updated” autopilot makes we really want the radar autopilot

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    There is one area the MS is far inferior to the M3P or any Tesla with radar Autopilot. Any 2 lane road that semi's or others travel and highways. Autopilot in the MS is almost worthless in the MS with how it currently works and where and how I drive. It is also one of the things I really like...

    I picked my June 2021 MS order up last week for the order price. Up until now, if it’s the same car Tesla will honor. I understand why they did not honor the major refresh updates. I.e. MS 2.0, I did receive a MS 2.0 with the updates. This car is worth every penny I paid, and the market says...

    2021+ Model S LR Delivery Tracking

    I drove the M3P yesterday back to back with my new MS and I was very surprised at how much more power the MS had, by the numbers they are reasonably close performance wise. In everyday real world driving the MS has a lot more usable power. I also love the air suspension. Stereo might be a wash...

    Model S 2.0 refresh update. The autopilot limited to 80mph is the “worst” feature. Found myself driving faster than normal since I couldn’t use autopilot on the highway. It also gets really pissy when you make the car go 10-15mph over instead of the max 5 over. Two thumbs down for the new...

    That’s exciting yours is coming tomorrow, I would have picked it up in any weather. Would have definitely checked the tires if it was snowing that day, but would have taken it home anyways. It has the new lights and the guy I met at delivery was really nice and helpful. I could not figure out...

    Thanks. The S is more than I anticipated when I ordered in June. Only issue was summer tires. It came with all parcel shelves and looked good. I have not hand washed it yet since it’s 18 Degrees, that’s when I will notice if there are any imperfections.

    I really like the yoke. The S also fit more in the back on my Costco run than the X6 could hold.

    My wife asked “how I liked her new car”. I said it doesn’t have a steering wheel. She then went on to something else. I don’t think she has even looked at it yet. She does want more than the 150 mile range the M3P gets at 90% charge in the winter.

    Call on the 17th. I received a few different responses on the anticipated arrival date. I was scheduled for delivery on Friday as the car was supposed to arrive Thursday. The car actually arrived in the afternoon on Tuesday and needed nothing, so I picked it up the first appointment of Wednesday.

    2 yrs ago they did not lock in chill and limit speed, but yes someone(s) screwed it up for all loaners by being stupid

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Overall Tesla has treated me good and fair, but locking my loaner P100d in chill and limiting speed to 80mph when our speed limits are 70-75mph is just cruel

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Yeah, but the sounds it makes and all the trips to the gas station to fill it up with $4-$5 premium gas will be missed. I kept my BMW longer than any other daily driver I have ever owned. The customer service and attention to detail is awesome. Tesla could really learn something by mirroring...

    Very nice, just don’t pull in the garage with the bike on top. I had a X3M as a loaner, thought it was the small/cheaper brother, but it was awesome to drive and the sounds it made were even better. That SUV is one of the best by any manufacturer ever built.
