    what does it mean tesla warning power braking assist reduced

    Power breaking or regenerative breaking? If the latter, then when the battery is cold, the maximum recharge rate (via regen) is reduced to protect the battery

    Does Model S work as family car?

    if you think Model S will serve us well as a family car? For Sure. How is the comfort on a long trips? I have found it to be very good, I think the concept of being forced to take a stroll every few hours is actually very helpful for avoiding fatigue. What about the backseats, are they comfy...

    Curious; what did that car set you back?

    Need advice on buying a high mileage 2017 Model S75

    One has to wonder if the items listed as 'new' replacements were actually refurbished / used parts. If so, it may not be as reliable as it might seem.

    Tesla online used car purchase MAJOR ISSUES

    So my question to the OP is: was the ticking of all your boxes in essence a way better deal then the other similar models? If so, should you really be surprised that it doesn't end up being as nice as the similarly spec'd cars that were more expensive? If it seems too good to be true.....?

    19" Slipstream Gray - Where?

    The TSportline are OEM in dimensions, including the center caps, so any OEM caps will fit.

    19" Slipstream Gray - Where?

    I know you want OEM, but just for reference, I bought these and love them: Tesla Model S Wheels-19" TSS Flow Forged Tesla Wheel (Set of 4) - T Sportline - Tesla Model S, 3, X & Y Accessories

    Any nose-cone'ers tried XENARC NIGHT BREAKER LASER headlight bulbs?

    So I'm planning to go in via the wheel well; anyone have specs or part number or (better yet) a link to the clips that hold the wheel well liner in place? I've heard that they can break, and I'd like to have some spares on hand if I can. tia,

    PowerBulbs (vendor) has a special going on the GT's, $60 for a pair shipped. I'll let you know how it turns out!

    [pics] Upgraded factory projector HIDs to aftermarket Laser projectors

    I could be wrong, but I think I've read that only cars equipped w/ air suspension have the ability to adjust the vertical alignment on headlights. If so, those w/out air might want to think twice about this mod.

    Beam alignment? Does it work straight away or need tweeking?

    Used Model S

    Bought mine used from tesla 2 years ago. Love Love Love my car. The buying experience is different to be sure, but so are the cars. You should be able to get some decent pictures of the car, at least I did.

    GPS tracking issue

    No expert here, but my thought is given the apparent directionality of the problem perhaps you have a GPS antenna issue? You might want to investigate the antenna mount and make sure it is holding the antenna with the proper orientation and not flopping around (the occasional fixing itself)?
  27. IslandHydro

    0-60 Without Activation of L+

    I don't think it's arguable at all, I think the S looks way sleeker, more elegant than the 3, by far.

    IRO Dashcam for AP1 doubts and questions

    Fact. I had some trouble getting it back together, but after monkeying with the wires to tuck them out of the way, it snapped right in and has been solid ever since (maybe a year?)

    Is Model S Extended Warranty Worth It?

    I agree with the prior comments, but would add that as with any insurance, your cost benefit ratio depends on how much stress you will harbor if uninsured. If your angst costs you more than insurance, then go for it.

    Miles?

    Did I invest too much?

    My advice: enjoy your car, it's a gem. Worrying over how much you spent is an exercise in futility, no matter what path you choose.

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Ok, check my logic: The mirror I am looking at (bought) on ebay had decent pictures, including a picture of the main plug. So I opened up my door, took a picture of my plug and compared the occupied pins. The picture on top is my (broken) mirror, below is ebay. The ebay mirror has all of the...

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    Tesla parts catalog lists 1041317-00-G for my car (drivers side mirror), must be the latest part version. Opened up the door on my P85D, mines a 1041317-00-A. So back to the question of interchangeability... A lot of 1041317-00-F's on ebay, one G and a few A's. Anyone with experience on...

    Model S Technical / Mechanical Issues

    So I broke the drivers side mirror on my 2015 P85D. Tesla wants ~$700 to fix so I think I'll try it on my own. Looking at ebay it looks like they go for $2-300 for a used mirror. There are a few different part numbers, with this format: 1041317-00-? where ? varies from mirror to mirror (B...

    Recommended Rims for P85D?

    So is there any issues with selecting a 21” arachnid when you have 19’s? Is the setting purely aesthetic or is there any functional change such as power consumption calcs?
  44. IslandHydro

    Recommended Rims for P85D?

    Also,the all season / snow tires options are extremely limited for 21's. So depending on where you live, that can be an issue. If I really wanted the look and stiff ride of 21's I'd have them as summer wheels switching to my 19's in the winter.

    Recommended Rims for P85D?

    I've been very pleased w the Tsportlines:

    Picking up my new to me 2015 P85D today

    My P85D has been the best car I've ever owned by a good margin, and I've owned a similar variety as the OP. Not flawless, but for such a game changer it's a marvel.

    Self closing charge port door broke

    Tell you for sure tomorrow, have a mobile ranger coming to fix it! My car is a CPO (purchased from Tesla w/ 27K mi) with 2.5 years left on the warranty, so my fingers are crossed.

    Self closing charge port door broke

    As would I, but at this point the only doors i'm finding on ebay are the non-auto closing variety (with the magnet). Anyone have a lead on an auto closing door?

    Self closing charge port door broke

    Multiple pieces, one chunk still attached to the door.
