    Signature HPWC (24 ft, Matte black, 80A)

    Greetings again! A little backstory, I lost my Model S a couple months ago, and decided to purchase used (In this market i know T_T but i actually got a pretty solid deal) and wouldn’t you know it, the previous owner left this little present for me in the trunk!! It looks BRAND NEW, despite...

    2018 Tesla Model S Next Gen Seats with Headrest Adjustment Black Textile - Excellent Condition

    What a deal!! if you don’t mind me asking, where did you get the white seats? I’m thinking about doing the same as you, but I’m having a heck of a time sourcing the parts. Did Tesla install them, or did you do them yourself/have a third party shop do it?? thanks and good luck with selling!!

    Lowering on H&R Springs

    I didn’t do them myself, but I went for these as well on my old 2015 P85D and have some info; since when I was looking into doing it, there was SO little information on it. I had an approved Tesla shop do it, and even they were confused by what I wanted to do, but afterwards they told me it...

    My Model S Saved My Life

    A 20k repair on a car worth 40k is a big percentage. As Tesla gets older, their supply of the older parts becomes smaller and smaller, which could increase waiting time for parts. I know I only got a 90kwh battery because they HAD to replace it as per warranty. They don’t make 85 packs...

    My Model S Saved My Life

    I had the Recaro seats too!! I think myself and several others here would recommend avoiding an out of warranty Tesla... my car ran great and one day just bricked and needed a new battery 6 months before warranty expired. I don't even want to think about what that would have run me.

    My Model S Saved My Life

    I actually just did the same, and Tesla offered me a LAUGHABLE amount, and i considered selling private party... I finally made the decision to keep it about 2 weeks before this... Hopefully insurance does better than Tesla, lord knows they couldn't do worse. Best wishes, and good luck with...

    My Model S Saved My Life

    The girls in the Jeep were pretty banged up, but no serious injuries. A few cuts and bruises, but the driver did have to be cut out of the car. She was taken to the hospital, and we weren't sure what the condition was, but i found out today she was in pretty good shape all things considered...

    Alright my guy. Thanks for the correction. Hopefully nobody gets bamboozled by this post. Glad we could fix that before it got out of hand!

    My Model S Saved My Life

    I feel like having every safety feature functioning when you needed it to would check the boxes for reliably working parts. Reliability doesn't just mean drivetrain.

    My Model S Saved My Life

    I definitely think that over time, things will surely begin to "settle" but I can only imagine that the tolerances have become significantly more reliable after 6 years haha. I've sat in a 2017 or 2018 MS once, in a showroom for a couple minutes, and while i noticed a substantial difference in...

    My Model S Saved My Life

    So here's where i'm sitting... My car was great, and i loved it... but it was very VERY poor in some regards. All the interior panels were squeaky, and didn't sit properly, there were rattles, and noises that drove me nuts... After just sitting in the 3, and Y, the interior just felt SO much...

    My Model S Saved My Life

    My adjuster SEEMED to be on my side, and was impressed i was able to total a model S. He took my invoices for the MCU upgrade, the integrated console, and everything i had done, including the 90kwh pack replacement. The difference in price between a P85D and a P90D is wild. We went back and...

    My Model S Saved My Life

    I was worried about this, but my claim evaluator called me today to inform me that they accepted liability for all four cars today. She also mentioned that all 4 of the passenger's parents are suing the grandmother as well. From the police report i was given at the accident; while i don't like...

    My Model S Saved My Life

    Well, it happened. Unfortunately, the other night while driving home from dinner with my sister, I got into a minor fender bender with my 2015 Model S... This car, and the engineers at Tesla have effectively saved my life. WHAT HAPPENED?? Driving home from dinner with my sister (She was...

    HPWC Signature Matte Black $500 OBO NY area

    Greetings friends! So during spring cleaning i found a Signature Matte Black HPWC that i purchased last year and never got around to install. The box is absolutely destroyed, so i wouldn't feel comfortable shipping it, but it's never been hooked up. It's the 24ft cable, and in otherwise...

    Nearly brand new 90 kWh Non-Ludicrous battery pack, v3 - LIMITED TIME

    So it was an EXTREMELY strange case... I had an 85 pack and came out one summer morning to a bricked car. Had it towed to Syosset, where they replaced the battery. They put a 90kwh battery in it, and software limited it to 85, but didn't change it in their system. My app said P90D, on...

    A little interior lighting mod

    @Joesage 1: If the system you're talking about is what i think, (The fiber optic cables with the LED housing at the end) may or may not work, as they come with a single 12V converter that all the light diodes branch out from. These are independently wired, allowing the wiring to be localized...

    Nearly brand new 90 kWh Non-Ludicrous battery pack, v3 - LIMITED TIME

    As someone who just had their 2015 P85D upgraded to a P90D through Tesla with a V1 90kwh battery... I am frothing at the mouth to get that L. I wish i held off just a little longer on the MCU2 upgrade :(

    Swapping executive rear seats for bench style

    I have the executive rear seats and i have been looking for a way to get them swapped for the bench for a while now. After seeing your posts, and discovering it is actually possible, i just had a couple quick questions if you don't mind. Do you still have the executive seats displaying in...

    Replacement 85kwh Battery

    Y’all are completely right, and I should definitely be more appreciative of the work Tesla has done. Splitting hairs complaining about the service centers is old hat, and I recognize it is childish to do so. I think I speak for most of us when I say that I love my car, and do my best to stay...

    Replacement 85kwh Battery

    When I called to ask about the app reporting “P90D” I asked if a 90kwh battery was put into the car. After a hold, I was assured that no, it was not a 90. It was the same battery model that came out of the car. this is the same service center that “forgot” to install one of the drain hoses...

    Replacement 85kwh Battery

    I can’t believe there is such a difference in SC “protocol” I have half a mind to just go to different service centers to ask them... I just got off the phone with customer service, who called the manager, and said that “you weren’t supposed to be notified that there was an upgrade”. So my SC...

    Replacement 85kwh Battery

    Another Update!!! service called to tell me that the car has a 90kwh battery but they are not allowed to let me use it, so it’s software limited. Apparently they are not allowed to put a 90kwh battery and not limit it due to “procedures”. is my tech seriously trying to tell me this? Anyone...

    Replacement 85kwh Battery

    I have an update for y'all and i am CONFUSED. So i got the call yesterday that the battery came in and would be installed. I got a notification pretty much just as i got off the call saying there was a software update, and the car was back online!! I opened the app and my jaw dropped when i...

    Replacement 85kwh Battery

    Yeah, I’ve lost 10% in a night when it was freezing cold...but it was mid 50s lol! It wasn’t even connecting to the app. The doors, wipers, trunk/trunk lights and windows all worked fine, but the panels were borked, and didn’t respond to reset. while it was on the truck I got an alert that...

    Replacement 85kwh Battery

    went outside to find a dead car :/ had to have it towed to the SC... it had 50% charge the day before when I moved it into the street for the next day (getting a new roof and they needed the driveway for a dumpster). Went to go grab breakfast for everyone and the car was dead. :(.

    Replacement 85kwh Battery

    Ugh I was worried about this :( thanks for the reply, I will be certain to check it out. what should I look for as far as charging? I pretty much capped out at 50kw with my old battery... hard to tell if it was throttled or if it was the bad battery...

    Replacement 85kwh Battery

    Hey y'all, Just heard back from my SC that i'll be getting a new HV battery for my P85D. They don't have an ETA, but reported the battery is part # 1088934-01-E which is an 85kwh v6. Does anyone know if this battery is throttled by battery/chargegate? I can't seem to find anyone else...

    Photos of modified headlamp performance – amazing

    Chiming I’m here, paid for the headlights June 4th 2019, was told they would be done after July 4th weekend. Then told in late August he had an update for me, and now no responses. $1800 and $500 in headlights gone. I sent him a google pay request for the money back lol. He won’t respond...

    A little interior lighting mod

    No, you’re correct. Each package comes with 2 pigtails, so by purchasing 2 packs, you get 4! You need a pigtail for each door if you don’t want to cut the car wiring!! And yeah, the fit is extremely tight, please please please be careful, as the finish on the chrome-ish trim is VERY delicate...

    Headlights swapped!!

    Dammit I would have jumped all over this.... if I didn’t have so much already invested, I would jump ship... but something tells me getting a refund, and the unfinished lights may be more difficult than just waiting for him to get enough to finally do the work :(

    Headlights swapped!!

    Paid in full, I had purchased another set of headlights from a guy on here, who happened to actually know Evan personally, so I thought that was cool! Got confirmation that Evan picked up the lights in person, sent payment. Radio silence since...

    Vision Auto Lab Headlight Install

    Wow, that's especially annoying because i emailed him today lol. He had made mention that he likes to wait for a "batch" to come in because it makes it more efficient for him... I would ask how many more he is waiting for before he starts delivering...It's such a shame because i really want...

    Did you ever end up getting in touch with him? I've been waiting for my pair since June, and he doesn't respond to me :(

    No, I tested them out to be safe. When I was insulating them, I took a “test wrap” and left it set up for 24hrs via usb, and when I checked the temp, it was only 1 degree over room temp, so they don’t generate enough heat to be a problem!!

    The pigtails are actually how I spliced in. I basically treated the pigtails as If they were the direct line in the car (Because that's exactly what they are, just extensions). and when you unplug the harness that's in the door, the pigtails just get plugged in female to male, and male to...

    I just ran out and snapped a few for you here. This is the passenger's door. Notice how there's a crease in the door trim, This is where the tail of the light strip should be pushed in, and wrapped around as neatly as possible (When you reattach the panel, it should be flush) This is the...

    It's been my absolute pleasure to share something I love with you great folks!! As for your questions, I will do my best to be as thorough as possible. 1: For the dash light, I put the transformer in the door for one main reason. There are no ambient light switches anywhere else in the car...

    Yes!! From the outside you can see the lines from the doors all the way around, and it looks really sick. The rear doors really pull the whole setup together.
