    MX and MS prices slashed!

    I‘m looking at it from a on-road performance standpoint since I have the Plaid and I didn’t think the performance models were overpriced. You got the best bang for your buck, even at the higher prices. I’m sure most MS and MX competitors have better build quality and that’s reflected in their...

    MX and MS prices slashed!

    I’m not looking at it as an investment, but cutting prices by 15-20% overnight is artificial depreciation. I'm not planning to sell, but it just sucks to know that if I wanted to I'd have to come out of pocket to cover part of the loan. Literally all the principal I paid down since May...

    MX and MS prices slashed!

    And just like that, I'm upside down on my auto loan 🤦🏻‍♂️ Thanks Elon.

    Do police respect Tesla's more?

    I'm going to double down on my previous post that maybe they just don't hear us gunning it. If they do see us, they can't tell how fast we're really going if they don't have their radar on. Case in point, yesterday I was making a right turn at an intersection and I didn't see the police cruiser...

    Has anyone gone from stock 19” Pirelli P Zeros to Michelin Pilot Super Sports?

    Happy New Year's guys! Thanks for the responses and advice. Thanks. A quick blowout is my biggest concern. The puncture wasn't a slow leak and would deflate so quickly I had to fill it up a few times to find the hole since whatever punctured it wasn't in the tire. I don't track the car, but I...

    Has anyone gone from stock 19” Pirelli P Zeros to Michelin Pilot Super Sports?

    Thanks guys. I just had concerns with the plug b/c from what I've read after getting the tire plugged, they aren't that safe. Given that I have a lead foot, last thing I’d want is the plug to give out at 80+ mph on the freeway on a $100k+ car. I was considering the Super Sports because those...

    Has anyone gone from stock 19” Pirelli P Zeros to Michelin Pilot Super Sports?

    Hi everyone. I got a flat on one the the rear tires about 6 weeks ago and had it plugged since I was heading out of town that day. I’ve gone over 1000 miles on It so far, but I’m thinking it’s probably best to change the tires. Has anyone gone from the stock 19” Pirellis to the Michelin Pilot...

    Model S Wh/m

    I average about 310Wh/m over the course of 6000 miles and that includes quite a few 0-60 ”tests”. I do mostly city driving and have a lead foot. I can get mid to high 200s if I’m below 70mph. I’ve gotten in the high 100s in really bad traffic on the freeway.

    To Plaid or Not to Plaid?

    No, they did not lock it to chill mode. I had full power until 85mph.

    To Plaid or Not to Plaid?

    You can always get the Pilot Super Sport. It’s the predecessor of the PS4S and comes in the factory 19” size. They’re marginally heavier than the PZ (6lbs total) and might be a bit louder since they don’t have the foam inserts.

    To Plaid or Not to Plaid?

    The P Zeros do chirp, but that could also be b/c of road conditions and cold tires. Haven’t had a chance to go to the nearest drag strip since the closest one is about an hour and a half away in heavy LA traffic, so the strip of road I’ve found that has no driveways or turnoffs and is deserted...

    To Plaid or Not to Plaid?

    As someone who drove an LR loaner for two weeks while my Plaid was getting serviced, there is no comparison. I really missed my Plaid, as did my daughter. You won’t really notice a difference during normal driving and acceleration, but you just don’t get that gut punch in the LR like you do in...

    19” Tempest rim price

    I haven’t listed them yet, but still plan on selling them. I’ll have to check on shipping to NY if you’re interested.

    Range & Tire Pressure

    I know it’s not accurate and don’t expect to get anywhere near the estimated range. All I'm saying is that tire pressure seems to change the 90% range the car estimate and that people should check their tire pressure if their range suddenly decreases. I've read the different threads, and it...

    Range & Tire Pressure

    I know this is an old thread and I wanted to add my experience rather than start a new one for anyone whose range decreased. I believe Tesla does take into account tire pressure when calculating range. I have a 2022 MS Plaid with 19s and about 4500 miles. My estimated range is 396, so 90% is...

    19” Tempest rim price

    I’m wondering what would be a fair price to sell only the Tempest rims (no tires or TPMS) from a 2022 MS Plaid? I’m putting the factory rubber on 19” Signature SV104s and don’t need the Tempest rims anymore. Thought about using them for a winter setup, but don’t have room to store them. I know...

    Weird buzzing sound after updating to 2022.24.6 [Fixed in 2022.36.1]

    Followup to my previous post as I don't see an option to edit and add to it. The whine starts when you hear the "click". Not sure what that engages, but it starts right after that.

    Weird buzzing sound after updating to 2022.24.6 [Fixed in 2022.36.1]

    I think the whining noise occurs when the car's system is awake. I went into the garage to charge the MSP last night, but forgot my phone to unlock the charging port. Didn't hear the noise, but it immediately started when I came back with my phone. Then this morning, I checked the car without my...

    2022.24.8 Weird issue regarding the update

    Same here. Tried powering off and resetting systems but it's still there.

    Do police respect Tesla's more?

    I wonder if it has to do with the fact that you can hear an ICE car flying down the road a lot more than you can an EV?
