    2012 Tesla Model S 85 for sale, lots of extras and upgrades $35,500.00

    Hey guys, I am selling my 2012 Model S 85. There are currently around 83,000 miles on her and she is in mint condition. The original color of the car is a dark hunter green but I liquid wrapped the car in a pearl white autoflex custom paint job. The paint is 100% removable and the original paint...

    New Driver seat bottom leather

    Hey does anybody know how I can get a driver’s side leather cover for just the bottom cushion of the seat in tan? Anybody have a part number by chance? Service told me the entire seat would need to get replaced lol...what a waste. Thanks in advance

    2014 P85 Gets a 2017 facelift using OEM parts

    Hey Adrenalin, thanks for the updates and encouraging words on the ease of install. What did you need to do to get the original fog lights to fit? Could you take a close up picture of the fog in the new bumper when you have a chance? I am planning on doing this upgrade as well. Also any other...

    New Rotors

    Nice but admittedly I would be doing it 80% for looks and am looking to spend about 1/4 of that. Any other options that you are aware of by any chance?

    New Rotors

    Does anybody know the correct size or brands and part numbers of cross drilled and/or slotted rotors for our model S? I purchased the 2010 Camaro SS rotors and pads a while back and the pads fit. The rotors were the right size but the offset (depth the rotor sits against the hub) was wrong and...

    Tesla TSB’s (Technical Service Bulletins)

    Ok thanks guys, I will check out the Tesla service portal.

    Tesla TSB’s (Technical Service Bulletins)

    On the Mercedes forums it is usually somebody with inside info that posts them up.

    Tesla TSB’s (Technical Service Bulletins)

    Thanks but I am looking for the real TSB’s that I am assuming somebody with access to Tesla or the Mitchell1 software would be able to get. I don’t know of any website that would list everything and to the same detail.

    Tesla TSB’s (Technical Service Bulletins)

    I have been trying to find a comprehensive list of all model S technical service bulletins to date but have not been successful. Does anybody know where I can find this information? I believe anybody with access to the Mitchel1 software will be able to get the list. Thanks

    Doing a brake job myself help please

    Link for the write-up? I ordered the camaro rotors a while back and they did not fit as the offsets were wrong. Pads were the same as the Camaro SS though.

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    and to be exact they retrofitted the panoramic side appliqué right hand and left hand with the new versions and all supporting gaskets and hardware. This also makes my S look newer and i love it.

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    I just picked up my S from the service center today and it seems like they did an awesome job. They found that water was getting in through the pano roof gaskets down the passenger side b pillar like suspected. They installed all new gaskets and new style pano roof rack tracks and other...

    Nope don't have any water coming in back there. Car is at the service center today.

    Same thing happens to me, songs I dislike show back up again days later. Tried going on the website but takes forever to delete stuff.

    17.24.28 released - improved 'silky' update from 17.22.46?

    Same here on my pre-ap model S

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    At least you found it. I believe the pano roof gaskets are a known point of water intrusion. I have my appointment scheduled for that fix as well. This seems to be the culprit so hopefully this post helps others out with the same problem.
  22. Live_Wire

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    I don't have any stains directly around the pano but I do have a water stain on the passenger side b pillar. If I had to guess, that is probably the culprit and where the water is going down to. No real smell when I put my nose to it though. I have a tan headliner so easy to see the discoloration.

    Avatar update for app and car after complete color change

    Yeah, it might have been just for the color change due to the car coming from Tesla with the VIN matching the old color. Or just the excuse before they knew how to do it...but either way it's all good now.

    Brake Rotor specs

    Thanks for the reply. I just wish there was a cheaper aftermarket option than OEM with cross drilled and/or slotted options as well.

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    So while at my SC today for an avatar update I brought up the smell problem. The tech stated he could smell it too. I have a new appointment with the SC in a few weeks where they will be addressing the issue. It is most likely coming from a leaking seal on the pano roof as the car has been...

    Avatar update for app and car after complete color change

    Avatar update completed today at my SC after they got clearance from Tesla HQ to do the color change. They changed the wheels to darker ones and the color to white. Very happy with the result! Thanks for all the feedback and I hope this thread helps others out who are looking to have their...

    Avatar update for app and car after complete color change

    Got a call from the SC today and they stated they got the approval from Tesla and I will need to bring my car in to change the car color and wheel color. Will post the outcome next week. :)

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    So I installed a new activated carbon air filter today but when I pulled out the old one, I noticed it was also already activated carbon. I smelled it and it didn't have any bad smell but I changed it regardless. I am pretty sure this is not the issue at this point. It is the smell that az_rael...

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    That is exactly the smell I am talking about, hopefully it's the filter.

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    Awesome, thank you. I hope that does it but I am going to change it out asap and post the results.
  32. Live_Wire

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    Yup, nothing in the vehicle that could be causing the smell. I am pretty sure it is water intrusion but nothing is ever wet or smells up close and no signs of mold or anything anywhere.
  33. Live_Wire

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    Not in my model S...
  34. Live_Wire

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    Lol not unless they are living in my car somewhere I don't know about. The smell comes and goes and there is absolutely nothing in my car that would give off that smell.
  35. Live_Wire

    Musty "Locker Room" Odor

    I have had my Model S for only a few months (new to me 2012) but I just recently noticed a musty smell in my vehicle. It does not come from the AC or vents like others have complained of and I cannot find any water intrusion coming into the vehicle from rain. I also had my rear appliqué upgraded...

    Brake Rotor specs

    I actually ordered the Camaro SS rotors and pads to replace the brakes on my S and the pads are correct however the rotors are not. The area of the rotor that goes over the wheel hub is much deeper on our Teslas than the Camaro SS rotors for the front at least. I only got that far before...

    Avatar update for app and car after complete color change

    Well to my surprise I spoke with the SC today and they stated they were able to get in contact with Tesla and they approved the color change for my vehicle and the wheels because it is a wrap and removable. My SC stated that it should be an over the air change and I should see the results...

    Avatar update for app and car after complete color change

    I agree, I will be sure to post their answer when I hear back and I'm sure I will be right where I started.

    Avatar update for app and car after complete color change

    They stated they did not know how to do it, and even if they could do it, they would need approval from somebody higher up first because they are changing the cars settings that came from the factory. They said they are reaching out to Tesla and will be contacting me within a few days. This is...

    Avatar update for app and car after complete color change

    Thanks for the feedback, headed to my SC now, will update with results.

    Avatar update for app and car after complete color change

    I will try again but last time I was there I asked and they told me it was not possible as the avatar info was associated with the VIN or some bs. I then told them it has been done by others in California but they still did not know what to do. It was the Milford, CT service center.
  42. Live_Wire

    Avatar update for app and car after complete color change

    I changed the color of my S to white and I have been going back and forth with Tesla and the service center. All I am looking to do is have Tesla change my car avatar to match the new color both on the app and in my vehicle. I have read where others have had it done over the air for both paint...

    Black OEM Floormats front and rear

    Hey, I am selling a set of used black floormats out of my model S. I went with the all weather mats so these are not needed anymore. $65.00 local pickup or buyer pays shipping. Located in CT.

    Possible to update car graphic to 21" Turbine wheels?

    My service center in Milford CT had no idea when I asked if they could change my wheels and car color on the avatar to match my powdercoated wheels and white wrap. I have been emailing tesla about it for the last week.

    Brake pedal play / rattle when lifting off pedal...

    Have the same clatter noise when lifting off the brake pedal. Everybody has been saying Tesla is working on a fix for this but has that fix ever made an appearance? Seems like it's not very hard to figure out.
