    2021 Model S Plaid Black/Cream/19in wheels/Wood/FSD pay as you go/Full front PPF/Ceramic/Tinted/150miles/Florida

    Second Model S Plaid just got VIN assigned: Keep the first one or sell it and take second?

    They’re both black. Only difference between the two is wheels and wood vs carbon fiber. I took FSD off both and decided to pay for the subscription after all the research I did on the topic.

    Second Model S Plaid just got VIN assigned: Keep the first one or sell it and take second?

    I had two Plaids on order. The more expensive one that I ordered in June got a VIN and I purchased it. {Black/cream/wood/19inch wheels.} My oldest reservation (Jan 2021) just got a VIN assigned 🙄 one week later. It’s $10k less because of when I reserved it. It’s Black/Cream/CF/Arachnids...

    Just got my Plaid back after 5 days. Got front PPF, ceramic, tint all around (70/35/20/20/20). About 5100k total. Bought some bolt covers off Amazon for the Tempest wheels.

    Refresh S - Dashcam Viewer

    Nice, congrats. I get my car back today after having PPF, ceramic, and tinting done. I will play around with all the computer stuff later today once I get it back. Congrats on the long range model also. Still an amazing car with impressive speed and performance. I think over time you will really...

    Refreshed MS LR/Plaid Firmware status

    I just got a new plaid yesterday. Running 12.4.9. No dashcam viewer (even using voice commands) and infotainment crashing when pulling up manual. How do we update to latest firmware?

    Any updates on this? Got a new plaid yesterday and dashcam viewer not working and no icon available in infotainment center

    Refresh Model S Tint / PPF / Ceramic Photos & Info

    Looks awesome. Got a plaid yesterday. Are you happy with the percentages you chose? I live in FL with blazing heat. Was considering the same with the exception of 70% on front. Was also considering 20 all around but felt it may be too dark for front windows. Did you redo tint on pano roof?

    Model S Plaid chrome delete discussion

    Got my plaid yesterday. Wanted to start a discussion about what everyone is doing for the emblem chrome delete and the “Plaid”’badge chrome delete. Was going to potentially wrap them all in gloss black versus a plaid wrap. I’ve seen some talk of carbon fiber wrap. Any thoughts?

    Owner's manual freezing + crashing the computer S Plaid

    Got my plaid yesterday. Happened to me three times today while trying to read manual. Did it once while waiting at stop light to quickly read something about yoke and screen went black to reboot but did not affect driving. Crazy times we live in.

    Vendor Plaid Review by a Detailer

    Getting similar package done at my local Ceramic Pro. How did you black out emblems on front and rear?

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Got my Plaid today. Delivery was painful as everything with Tesla seems to be for some reason. Had a few panel gaps, rubber trim not aligned, piece of foam still stuck inside the car to the pano roof??? with a bunch of glue, grease on passenger seat and center console that required degreaser...

    Get mine tomorrow. On 19s. I will let you know what tires and try and post pictures depending on FL weather (?hurricane).

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    They’re not. That has become apparent to me over the last 8 months. I spared you guys a lot of the other details but they involve a third order, playing around with a “pay in cash” order. I will tell you that the car that I said I would pay in cash was the one that got the VIN assigned...

    Advice/Poll: Pick up Plaid with VIN, delivery date and 10k more expensive or wait for order that has no VIN assigned?

    Unfortunately I tried this several times and they said they would absolutely not do this. We all know how much they excel at customer service there. I have debated even getting it many times solely based on their company policies and customer service experience.

    Advice/Poll: Pick up Plaid with VIN, delivery date and 10k more expensive or wait for order that has no VIN assigned?

    Yeah. I’m not. I have an actual day and time for the more expensive one but an estimated date range and no VIN assigned for the other. Yes, I can afford it. I have financing already arranged. Check has been mailed.

    Advice/Poll: Pick up Plaid with VIN, delivery date and 10k more expensive or wait for order that has no VIN assigned?

    I ordered a Plaid+ in Jan 2021. This order was randomly downgraded to Plaid at $119k price with $4500 21 inch arachnids/black exterior/cream interior/Carbon fiber. In June I ordered a different one at the $129k price, black exterior, wood grain/cream/tempest 19inch wheels. Got a VIN and...

    2021 MS 19” Tempest Delivery Tracking

    Unfortunately I think this is the case. Long story, but due to ordering Plaid + and backup Plaid x2 I had three orders. Just got a VIN assigned on my most recent order from April. This spec is Black/Cream/wood/Tempest/no FSD paying in Cash (just to see if that would speed things up; and it...

    Ordered CPO - delivering soon

    Thinking of ordering CPO but it sounds INSANE to me to put a non-refundable deposit down on a 50-80k car without pictures or any information on it besides the battery size and year/mileage. I have been in contact with Tesla and apparently the car I am interested in is out as a service loaner...
