    Lol, thanks. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I think I may be the only 2.5 for sale in the US right now. If even 1 in a million people were interested I'd have to beat off hundreds of them with a pitchfork...or Bessy, my mud encrusted shovel that I introduce all my daughters' boyfriends...

    90 Day $4K Battery Repair Warranty with Purchase of Roadster

    This sounds like a great idea to me, one I was considering stealing for my own Roadster if you don't mind. But I also see SageBrush' point about the warranty limit vs cost of actual battery replacement. I'd love it if you could post back here if you do decide to try this, so we can all learn...

    Is my roadster a 2010 or 2011?

    I know Tesla didn't do model years, and instead did revisions (1.5, 2.0, and 2.5). However, bluebooks, auto-sale websites, etc, all work off of model year. So it would be helpful to know what I can list my car as. My car is a 2.5 with a construction date in December of 2010. I believe the...

    Has anyone tried listing their Roadster for sale on DupontRegistry.com?

    It's not as high as some babied, weekend cars, but the last two 2.5s that I saw reporting a CAC were as low as 130 or under, and that's with 23k and 35k miles. Given my 51k miles I think 130 is pretty good. That said, I'm always open to offers; looking for another Roadster? ;) I've...

    Has anyone tried listing their Roadster for sale on DupontRegistry.com?

    Thanks all; managed to get my CAC. It's reporting as just under 131. That's a good point and I did consider that. On the other hand, I'm paying out over $450/month in interest (it was over 5 years old when I bought it), which is a lot. If I sell it and purchase something newer and cheaper I...

    Has anyone tried listing their Roadster for sale on DupontRegistry.com?

    Thanks for the suggestion. Is there any way to get the CAC without OVMS? My OVMS on H20 wireless stopped working over the winter, and I'm not sure why; I'm wondering if H20 pulled an AT&T and stopped supporting OVMS. I have my CAC from an OVMS text from just before I took it in for service...

    Has anyone tried listing their Roadster for sale on DupontRegistry.com?

    This is exactly true. When I set out to sell the car I was not in any real hurry, and so I decided that I would leverage my patience and list it at what I considered a more reasonable asking price, rather than a "must sell now" price. As my patience wears down, I'll let my price wear down as...

    Has anyone tried listing their Roadster for sale on DupontRegistry.com?

    I've listed my car for sale on TMC, Craigslist, Cars.com, AutoTrader.com, and CarGurus.com. I would love to get some more exposure, especially now that the weather is turning nice again, and ran across DupontRegistry.com. However, the cost of listing it there is twice what AutoTrader charges...

    I'm not sure what the policies are on bumping, but the car is still for sale and just coming out of its winter slumber; hopefully the last of the salt washed off the roads with last night's rains so I can take her out when we finally see some sun. :) Had a few inquiries, but only one serious...

    Where to sell a Roadster?

    I think so. Almost all of the Roadsters that I've seen listed for sale are in California. So far I've received three responses that were interested in my car. One was through the Tesla Service Center in Cleveland, one was from Virginia, and one was from Washington. So 33% of the responses...

    Where to sell a Roadster?

    Good suggestion. I just listed my car on Craigslist. It'll be interesting to see if it garners any interest. I wouldn't have expected it to as you usually need to go pretty far outside your area to find a Roadster, making CL too hard to search due to its local nature I would think. I tried...

    Where to sell a Roadster?

    I was going to post this same question. I've had mine up for sale for two months or so with some interest, but nothing serious yet. I know it's not the optimal time of year to sell and it takes a while to find a buyer in any case, but I'd hate to miss a potential interested party if it can be...

    Thank you for that; I'll go down and try again. There's a rim that's part of the dash (1), then a space, then a plastic ring (2), then a small space, and then the grill (3). I was placing a wedge between (1) and (2) and trying to lift out (2). I'm reading your response as saying I should...

    Also, is anyone able to provide details on how to remove the factory grills? All of the threads I've seen simply refer to "removing" them, or "prying them off". I tried using a small flathead screwdriver but I was making no progress and damaging the dash around the grill. I tried using a...

    Thank you all for the responses. I remember seeing that one when I searched months ago but somehow missed it this time. Thanks; that's a great help.

    I'd like to replace the entire stereo system in my Roadster 2.5, but that's a financial impossibility now. So I'm thinking of just putting Morel Maximo 5.25" components in the front and Morel 4" in the back, hoping to improve the sound quality enough to listen to it. I was wandering if anyone...

    Understanding People Who Don't Drive Their Roadsters

    I often wondered the same thing when looking for one to purchase. Then I finally bought my Roadster about a year ago, and in that time have put some 2500 miles on it. The thing is, it's my primary car but I just don't have many places to drive to. Around the time I bought it I transitioned to...

    Percentage "made in the USA" for the Roadster

    With some of the recent buzz surrounding the Model S and how it's supposed to have a higher percentage of American made parts than any other car once the Gigafactory goes live, I started wondering about the Roadster. Unfortunately, any sort of number has been incredibly difficult to find. I...

    Thinking of selling my Vette for a Roadster

    I may have just had bad luck so far, and I hope my experience changes for this summer. It could be a mileage thing too; I bought mine with 47k miles, and am just over 49k now. Yes, very true if trying to give the car an objective rating in its' class. But as the OP is considering switching...

    Thinking of selling my Vette for a Roadster

    I’ve been an F-body guy most of my life, and my last car was a 2011 Mustang, as I’ve needed those back seats for the kids until recently. My parents have owned six new Corvettes since 1992, when I was only 12 years old. So I’m familiar with how manufacturers like Chevy treat their owners. I...

    Thinking of selling my Vette for a Roadster

    I agree with what ecarfan said. I'd also add that you will be out of warranty (as I believe the CPO program for Roadsters is gone), and repairs will be costly. And others may disagree, but I'd also go so far as to say repairs will be required often, and you have no choice about where to get...

    Extended warranty options

    I purchased a Roadster 2.5 last fall and my warranty runs out July 31st of this year. I just found out that because I am not the original owner I cannot extend it, which concerns me. Since I've had the car I've had error messages and issues more often than not. I'm sure others are in the same...

    Chrysler 200 - What I think Model 3 should look like.

    Everyone is different and I'd love to see a study on this, as my anecdotal experience (family, friends, co-workers I showed it to last week) has been completely opposite. Any idea if Tesla did any market research like this that's publicly available? I disagree. Yearly Camaro and Mustang sales...

    Chrysler 200 - What I think Model 3 should look like.

    My first thought when looking at the pictures posted to this thread (other than the Lotus concept) was "boringmobile". I also can't really tell any of them apart. I think if Tesla continues down this path they're going to lose a lot of excitement. I recently got a Model S loaner and brought...

    Power Trunk

    It's certainly not sitting in the garage; I take it out almost every day. But I still want to keep it looking as nice as possible. It's possible to keep a car nearly pristine for many years (at least until you're sitting in a grocery store and someone let's their buggy run across the entire...

    Power Trunk

    When I first picked up my Roadster one of the first things I noticed was the UI design of the trunk, specifically the closing process. I was brought up to see touching car paint as almost blasphemous (figuratively, but it really is a very strong negative association). I cringe every time I...
