    My new Plaid compared to my 2018 P100D

    I have to mention the most impressive part of this new model, and thats the handling. I have driven the top tier sports sedans (eg. M5), and I would bet it can handle as well or even better. In areas where we have narrow twisty roads, I can take them at speeds comparable to my Mclaren. I just...

    My new Plaid compared to my 2018 P100D

    You would be hard pressed to find someone who has the new model S not like it due to the yoke or the lack of stalks. Yes its something to get used to because we are human and hate change, but thats part of life. The car is such an upgrade and so amazing. People are have quality problems but...

    My new Plaid compared to my 2018 P100D

    I only used my scroll wheel to open and close my sunroof, which I loved. I am only pissed that there is not option for that and the horn button placement is crap. I have gotten very used to the lane change indicators, no issue at all after a few days. And really do like the use and feel of...

    My new Plaid compared to my 2018 P100D

    It took about 500 miles with it, and now I am quite happy with the yoke. The first day or two, it was really awkward. Now I prefer it.

    My new Plaid compared to my 2018 P100D

    I need to get someone to drive me old car to race side by side. Otherwise per my butt dyno, the Plaid is faster at all speeds period. I forgot to mention as well, the interior build quality and layout is so much better and nicer. The ride quality is feels much more like a S class benz then...

    My new Plaid compared to my 2018 P100D

    For those who are intrigued, I would like to leave a review of how the 2021 Model S Plaid compares to the 2018 P100D. Those who hate tesla, I know you can't help yourself to troll and comment. So have at it P100D already was able to do a 2.28sec to 60mph and had a lot of luxury amenities. Have...

    Tesla changed my Plaid Plus to Plaid

    Ok, I will check again with him about the FSD. The interior is not as important. Just noticed how cool the white was with the new interior and figured I would prefer that. The new contrast stitching though with the black interior looks good as well.

    Tesla changed my Plaid Plus to Plaid

    You are right. I screwed up. I know about the discount thing and fell for it this time...sorry. I called my local guy and he said that I am getting the car for 12k off with the FSD and all. If I edit the build or change anything I will lose the discount and my place in line. He said nothing...

    Plaid+ reservation holders: what is Tesla telling you?

    Husker, I see that you got them to remove the 1k order fee, which originally was a deposit fee which should of been applied towards the down payment. Not an extra fee.

    Tesla changed my Plaid Plus to Plaid

    I did notice the 1000 order fee. Before it was a deposit going towards the price of the car or downpayment. Now its just a order fee. That is irritating. Not sure what I want to do. Just got the email an hour ago, and that it shows if I want to go thru with order to log into account. The...

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    I could really care less about all this nonsense back and forth about range. It is important to some and less to others, we all have our reasons and we are entitled to them. Now what I am interested in, is those of you who are talking about the Plaid plus not being cancelled. And just...

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    If I knew they would cancel, I would of thought about it more. Still want to wait and see. Still in denial about this. Hope he was just on Ambien again, and will take it back today as he comes too.

    Plaid+ CANCELLED

    Out of the blue, I got a call on Friday afternoon to tell me my Plaid plus is likely going to be deliver in Mid 2022 but thats if everything goes well with the new battery pack. So there might be delays. He then said if I want, I can instead take delivery of one of the first regular Plaid in a...

    Wheels and Tint

    I just got my wife 2020 model X blue LR with 22" wheels. Took it to get clear bra and tint. They did the whole windshield. I asked about the ghosting issues. They said it was with 3M tint, but they only use Xpel tint for this windshield and for many customers and none have had the issue...

    Not having regen after the last software update sucks

    I also noticed on my wife's 2016 model X, my 2018 model S, and my wife just got a brand new 2020 model x LR. We haven noticed decreased regen braking on all of them, and yes at 80% or less, and we are in San Diego, so no cold to blame.

    Delivery Delays

    That sucks for all of you not getting it on time. My sister who ordered a model 3, got the same email as you guys about now being built in Jan. This is after her getting a text a week ago with a del date. And then they kept postponing it by another day. I put her in touch with the local...

    Model X delivery questions

    What they said. I just took delivery of our 4th Tesla, between my wife and I. I get the model S and she gets the model X. I would not let all the chatter on the forum make you worry. Its an exciting time, just enjoy it. Look for any cosmetic damage (likely there won't be any), so they can...

    Wiki Model X Order/Delivery Tracking - Google Sheet

    BTW, forgot to mention that the old great Bill Walton was there taking del of his new Tesla also. I expect the superchargers to be a total cluster fvck the next year, with 50 new model 3's being delivered every day this month.

    Wiki Model X Order/Delivery Tracking - Google Sheet

    Del went as planned yesterday morning. Did all the downpayment and lease agreement online before I went in. So just had to sign a few docs and looked over the car, which was PERFECT to our eyes. Drove amazing with only 13miles on odometer. Being that this is our 4th Tesla, we didn't need or...

    Del is set for tomorrow at 10:30am. They called and said everything is ready and done on my end. But that the car is still in transit, it is north of LA and should be another 4 hours away. But their drivers del 24/7 and it should be here middle of the night and ready for del tomorrow as...

    Model X Ordering Questions

    Going from Lexus to Tesla, you do lose some of these luxury features. But you gain so much more than just autopilot. The infotainment system, from how it plays music and to how easy the Nav is to use, is far superior to any other car right now. And most importantly, is how it drives. Its...

    Wiki Model X Order/Delivery Tracking - Google Sheet

    I hope I don't have any of these issues when I pick mine up any day now!?!?!?! As bad as it is, I don't think it is a fair outlook on how Tesla is. This is a situation where everyone is trying to cash in on the fed tax incentive before the end of the year. So they are delivering over 50 - 60...

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I am sure you guys all know this, but all these problems are occurring due to everyone wanting the very small fed tax credit, including myself. I have a 2018model S, and ordered my wife another X. Did so on 11/8 and still no Vin. They say after Xmas but before the 31st. They are delivering...

    Wiki Model X Order/Delivery Tracking - Google Sheet

    Congrats on your new X. I went by there yesterday and walked around to see if my car was there, sitting in the corner cuz they were too busy to deal with. It wasn't, hardly any X's there. Also was hoping to see the new fronts seats in person, but they didn't have any to show me. Did you get...

    Wiki Model X Order/Delivery Tracking - Google Sheet

    I just got an email from Tesla saying to confirm my 'delivery availabilty'. It didn't give me a vin or say that it was ready. It said del times are from 9am to 12 midnight every day. But the dates started from 12/22 to 12/31. And they wanted to me to say what days I wasn't available or if I...

    Unusual battery drain parked at airport

    Thanks for this tip guys. I have the model S and my wife has the model X. Since the last update my car has had battery drain of about 10 miles while I am parked at work for 9 hours. This only started happening since the big update when theater and spotify and summon thing was added. But I...

    Light Harmonic Premium Sound System Upgrade

    About us I put this Reus in my model S. It sounds so great and have recommended a few friends get it they are very happy also. They have done a ton of Tesla's and I think that is mostly what they do now.

    NVX B.O.O.S.T Series Bass Package for Tesla Model S I have been happy with all their after market products for my tesla's. I like the sound system, but it is not nearly as good as Burmester in porsche and benz. Has anyone got this upgrade in the model S, if so, how do you like it and is it...

    Anyone who went from a P90DL to a P100DL

    I had a 2015 p90DLudi for 3 years and just turned it in for lease end and got a 2018 p100Dludi in its place. I did not expect to feel much of a difference. I was very wrong. It is significantly faster. I can feel it at all speeds. At highway passing speeds it is unbelievable. The other...

    I'm about to join the Tesla family! CPO Unicorn S P100DL?

    Sounds good except for the vent seats. The only vent seats that work sort of good are the ones made in the past 6 months or so. They stopped making vent seats shortly after making your car in both model s and x, due to complaints of them not really working. My wife has them in her Model X...

    2018 Model S P100D

    I have a 15' P90DL and lease is up. So turning in for a P100D next week. They let me borrow one for a few nights. The seats are more supportive for front and back. And the heated seats all around and cooled front is nice. The extra power and range was noticeable. Weirdly is that I always...

    Tesla offered early lease end opportunity

    I was told that if I had ordered a new car it could of been built and deliver before 9/30, if I had ordered before 9/2. I was shocked they could build it that quickly. But if I do the early trade in, it will be for a heavily discounted demo car.

    Tesla offering me early lease return if lease a new car

    I am really only looking at demo cars with discounts, there are some good deals out there. And I lease cuz I write off on my businesses. To answer other peoples questions. My plan was to get another MS in Feb when my lease is up, or wait a few months if I knew an upgrade was in the works...

    Tesla offering me early lease return if lease a new car

    I have a 15' P90DL. It is the my favorite car I have ever had. It has every available option for that time as I recall. Lease is up in Feb 2019. They reached out and said I can trade in before the end of Sept only. The appeal is to take advantage of free supercharging which expires 9/16 and...

    2019 model S ???

    I am the original poster of this thread. To clarify what the Tesla employee's said was. They don't hear no know anything. They think that since all the attention was on the model 3, that now Tesla can focus its energy on updating the model S. And they would expect it to happen within this...

    2019 model S ???

    The euro luxury sport sedans all offer basic amenities at the price point of the model S. The model S is much better at so many other things but would still be nice to have things like a top end stereo system, massage seats, MUCH more storage pockets, etc. Even without any of these upgrades...

    2019 model S ???

    I have a 15' P90DL model S and my wife has a 16' P90DL model X. The lease is up on my S in Jan 2019. In chatting with local dealers, they have said. Wait till lease is up, and don't upgrade to P100DL right now. They expect to see refresh to interior and maybe exterior for 2019. What have...

    summon from key fob not working

    NO will check that out. But the summon does not even start. If you click the fob twice in quick succession and then hold it down for 2 seconds after the 2nd press, it should start the summon process. And then pressing the forward or rear buttons will tell the direction and whether you have to...

    Bad Wind noise from 40 - 60!?!

    It was not the sunroof but wast the small triangular window in the passenger door window area that had separated from the frame. They replaced it and my car is so quiet and amazing. Very happy, didn't know I could love it even more.

    Evannex front console vs Tesla front console

    I chose the Evannex product only because it can very easily be removed when I prefer to have the open space. The cupholder works fine and it holds my Iphone 6plus just fine also. Storage is ok. I also got the cubby door which allows you to store things in the cubby and not have them fly out...
