    2016SP90D 3000mile w/ AP $115000.

    BTW, their phone number provided traces to a female in a land line in Ohio, for what little it's worth. I would say there's about zero chance the landline left mommy in Ohio, and walked to Fort Wayne like a cell phone could.

    LOL -- haven't we reached a point where this has become a bad joke that perhaps the mods could take care of? Well played, SD_E, well played.

    120v charging cable died

    Works like a dream! Thanks! VERY easy fix (though I tested the new cable before, and after, with a continuity test to be overkill safe, to make sure the correct pins were fed the correct juice, just to be extra safe after fixing/improving). For me, I used a GCFI 9 inch extension with reset...

    WTB: Roadster 110v charger cable. $400 shipped.

    If I could delete this thread I would. I am fixing the cable for the new owner, based on the several threads discussing the design defect of "tesla" 120v cables. I have no interest now in buying a used cable that is going to also quickly fail, due to design defect. Thanks.

    120v charging cable died

    Honestly, my friend, I have to defer to the guys who have debated endlessly the pros and cons of slow, low amperage, charging, versus faster higher amperage charging. All I know is my personal experience, and I notice NO substantial difference in electricity cost, personally, between these two...

    110 Volt plug reset button broken... Can't charge. Help fixing it questions...

    Just moved from my old place where I had the 220v. Never used the 120v. Moved to a place I don't know, so rented until I know it better, and don't want to waste good money giving the landlord an RV nema to use my UMC here. Long story short, sold the car. And of course, per murphy's law, on...

    120v charging cable died

    Yes, Rolf. Had a 220v charger nema installed in my old house I just moved out of so I could use my UMC. Moved to an area I really don't know, so I rented. as much as I despised the 120v charger even before it started acting fussy, i Didn't really want to spend $1.5K+ or whatever on somebody...

    75% Failure Rate with Public (J1772) Charging Stations

    Really sorry for your experience. :/ Only drove outside of range before returning home once. Had to plan it to go to the Barstow, California Koa. I hear they used to let people charge for $10 or whatever, but the owner decided now "you need to rent a space." For my situation, given no other...

    120v charging cable died

    I'm just scratching my head on how inconceivable it is Tesla wasn't quickly aware of a design defect. I use my 220v one. The amount of times I've used the 120v one is, well, less than six. :/ Which parallels how darn quickly it's happened to you. Working now, but I trust this thing no more...

    2011 red Roadster 2.5 Sport. Impeccable condition

    Just for kicks, I went over there to take a look. Yup. Found it and a very long list of checkpoints passed on the car very easily. Funny comment, Mlauto, because, well, it's true, LOL. Oh, great license plate! Well played! ;)

    120v charging cable died

    Thank you, everybody, and to the person who directed me here. My roadster boards closed transport within probably hours to new owner, and just like you, 120v had the same symptoms, and wanted to wait until now to spring this on me. ;). It's working now, but I just want it reliable for the new...

    My one of a kind stock lotus aubergine purple tesla roadster gets on closed transport, probably tomorrow, for the new owner. And Murphys law, when I go to give it a final charge off of a 110v, the 110v cable acts fussy. "test" like didn't work for 60 seconds, and it took me 90 seconds to fuss...

    2010 Tesla Roadster 2.0 STOCK PURPLE #744

    Sold for full asking price. The buyer may disclose themselves if they wish. It's not my place. BTW, this is a GREAT car, and I'm positive I'm going to miss it, so part of the deal is I have "right of first refusal." Which mean, IF he sells, I have a right to match best real/confirmed offer and...

    Best I keep it with the car and the top that needs the bag. If anything changes, however, (stranger things have happened), and I end up with it, I'll contact you to see if you would still possibly want it and we'll take it from there. :) Thanks so much.

    2010 Tesla Roadster 2.0 STOCK PURPLE #744

    As we all know, said the master of the obvious, and nothing really matters until the sale is complete and everybody's moved on. Further, it's a big pain to sell Teslas outside of this community. So for the sake of getting things done, let's do this. $65,000.00. Thanks. Hope you're having a...

    Here's a bunch of pictures, as this seems easier than uploading a bunch here. Most are from starwood (good photographers, other than lack of detailing and the break rotors, car now looks -exactly- the same, as well it should, after 1700 more miles or so and the rest of time in a garage)...

    Carbon Fiber Roof : Can it be repaired?

    Here's to hoping you find a miracle worker who can repair with the CF look. Just sorry you have to deal with all this, bec yes, that would work, but sadly, as you point out, "sucky" it is. :/

    General chit-chat in "For Sale" threads

    LOL -- thanks as to the original point of this thread. Just went through a number of listings to take a look, and I have to say, I was rather taken aback by how many people who had no desire whatsoever to even consider a particular listed car were "helping" others or "helping" the OP by dumping...

    2010 Tesla Roadster 2.0 STOCK PURPLE #744

    Hi again, Hank. thanks. Truth is, I haven't driven a visual attention-grabbing car for many years, and I forgot to the degree that I really truly don't like it, personally. Plus, i had talked to blue and silver roadster owners, and they said "nobody really cares," so I relied on that. All i...

    2010 Tesla Roadster 2.0 STOCK PURPLE #744

    This is that exact car. :) I had it brought in from there in closed Transport. If you look carefully at the right side of the windshield of my icon pic, you'll see the obnoxious texas window registration that took like two hours and some peanut butter to get off due to Texas apparently using...

    Just sent a nice person from the board who asked about 40(?) pics in a zip file. Work is crazy busy, and though I intend to post those pictures here as well, it might take a few days. I'm a really awful photographer, but I'd be happy to grab any pic you want that I don't currently have. :)...

    2010 Tesla Roadster 2.0 STOCK PURPLE #744

    The main reason I bought this car is because it's purple, and thought to be one of a kind. I really LOVE true purple. Heck. Even my *toaster* is purple in THIS shade, since I'm highly particular about purple shades I like. Sorry, but taking what's thought to be the only "true purple" roadster...

    2010 Tesla Roadster 2.0 STOCK PURPLE #744

    Not exactly as to the reason for selling. No, I don't drive my carbon fiber on aluminum frame body, no side air bags car here, or anywhere else, like a madman, LOL (i.e., driving "so far over the speed limit"). I haven't even been even pulled over for decades for any reason, let alone have a...

    New Factory Custom Painted Model S !

    Will do, but when I bought it, I was written immediately by several people who wanted to, lacking a better phrase, "take a number," in case I ever sold. Sure. If they all pass, if I've not changed my mind about selling, I'll do that. I don't know if the leather interior was standard, but I...

    New Factory Custom Painted Model S !

    Let's talk, Hank, if you feel the same way (or anybody else who might want it, but Hank gets first dibs). Moved to a city where the traffic police are just nuts, and I don't want to find out how much attraction this gets, so it has just been sitting in the garage, plugged in, unused. I'd...

    Roadster 3.0

    Agreed with much of what you said. It would be slightly out of character for Tesla to get all the publicity they achieved with all components of the 3.0 upgrade and then just never get around to it this ... well ... this century ... sometime. The way I understand Tesla works is "maximum...

    Roadster 3.0

    1) Very happy for 1.5 owners who now get to play too, if they wish. 2) I'll always be bummed that packs in great condition pay the same price on the battery trade-in as the most worn packs in the field, or theoretically, bricks. But oh well. 3) A few days later on the battery order than...

    How long until a Autopilot accident is reported and the potential public backlash?

    Amazing to me that people think pedestrians, which Elon says "It should not hit. Hopefully," drivers of other cars, passengers, and others have somehow relinquished their rights against a car company who puts beta software in the hands of owners which includes the small percentage of idiots...

    3 day old import P85D crashed while using TACC

    I'm so appalled by "Kristoffs" comments, without reposting them, I wouldn't even know where to begin. No matter what AP or Tesla does, sorry to see that for now, we'll still have a group to apologize for Tesla and blame everybody but Tesla, who just put lethal software "beta" in the hands of...

    Roadster 3.0

    Exactly. So many times where good communication would be great for the company, great for customers, instead of a cluster. Here's hoping that the first people to support Tesla can get their 3.0 batteries (if they want).

    Lesson Learned: Keep your Brake Rotors Conditioned!

    thanks for the thread. I haven't had my roadster for that long, and I needed this information, as "the brakes seem fine," but what I understand now, with this help, is that in an emergency, unless measures are taken "okay brakes" will become "not so much." Now I know what to do. :) thank you.

    Will you buy the Roadster 3.0 battery upgrade?

    I hope it does for everybody else, too. But quite honestly, that's the only reason I'm buying now. I don't want to go to the website one day, want to hit the button, see "out of stock," ask them for an ETA (which they won't post, because well, they don't on any other parts), and be told "no...

    Roadster 3.0

    NOT anticipating it, to say the least, but I'd feel better about the battery deposit I just put down, if with the addition of a software tweak, the roadster "3.0" would then be faster. You guys know far better than I whether it's theoretically possible, as it was with model S's that got battery...
  48. cswolfe

    Will you buy the Roadster 3.0 battery upgrade?

    Yes. Though I cannot contain my disappointment that my battery with 12,000 miles on it will get no more credit toward the 3.0 battery than somebody else's battery dead or near death. :/ But look at the website roadster order items. A vast majority are sold out, and if you ask when they will...

    Roadster 3.0

    Ultra rare problem, of course, but I hope in August (year 2023) when the roadster 3.0 upgrade is released, that our new batteries will better protect themselves from long sits with low charge, because I'm hard pressed to see the downside of having that protection. :) Tesla: You can't 'brick'...
