    Partial Swap: Silver 21" Arachnid Wheels

    I have a set of 21" silver Arachnids with Pilot Super Sports, less than 1000 miles on both the wheels and the tires, like-new condition. They are staggered - wheels are 21x8.5J with 245/35/21 tires, and 21x9.0J with 265/35/21 tires. I like the wheels and tires but I'm interested in a square...

    Higher temp charging for better battery life

    I ran across this article today: Asymmetric Temperature Modulation for Extreme Fast Charging of Lithium-Ion Batteries - ScienceDirect The article is titled “Asymmetric Temperature Modulation for Extreme Fast Charging of Lithium-Ion Batteries. Engineers from Penn State published a study...

    Front skirt replacement

    Has anyone dealt with replacing this front plastic skirt? If that’s the right term for it. If so, how did you go about it, and where did you get the parts? The previous owner of my car really beat this part up, but the rest of the car is flawless. I’m going to ignore the fact that it looks like...

    Converted Mom’s Lexus RX order to Model Y at last minute

    My Mom (early 60s) has driven minivans, SUVs, or crossovers since I was a teenager. Her most recent car was a 2010 Lexus RX 350 that is starting to get a little long in the tooth. She had a new 2020 RX picked out and sent me the info and pics while my parents were at the dealership going through...

    Thinking about trying Autocross

    The other day, I had an exhilarating high-speed ascent up 3 or 4 miles of very twisty-turny mountain road in my P85D. It was a spontaneous thing, I was alone, and I sort of drove a little wilder than I typically would have with the wife and kids in the car. It was so fun that I thought I’d like...

    Lighting upgrade needed: AO vs. Taptes?

    Now that the daylight is starting to wane a bit, it’s becoming more obvious that even with the premium upgrade package, the model S lighting leaves a lot to be desired. I can barely see my kids in their rear-facing seats when it’s dark. It’s clear that I’m going to need some brighter lights...

    Sunroof crooked, won't "sit" flat

    I open my sunroof on the way to work every day. I love it. On the way home from work yesterday, I noticed a terrible wind noise on the highway, reminded me of the time I accidentally drove on highway with my sunroof still in "vent". When I got home, sure enough the sunroof hadn't closed...

    Giving a Co-worker’s Teen an EV Grant?

    I work with someone who has a 15-year-old daughter that my wife and I know well - she babysits for our 3 and 5-year-old kids a few times per month. She is an old soul, a little too mature and responsible for her age - she’s working several jobs, aggressively saving for her first car (and also...

    In need of delivery advice

    I’m taking delivery of my used P85D+ next week. For reference: My Unicorn came along - Pulled the trigger on used P85D! I’m moderately terrified after spending too much time reading horror stories on this forum about cars in terrible condition, features not enabled or absent, having to create...

    My Unicorn came along - Pulled the trigger on used P85D!

    Well, I wasn't planning on making this post so soon (my current Mercedes EV lease goes through October), but The Unicorn for me came along and I couldn't resist. Fully loaded P85D, but with a fair amount of mileage. Appears to be in pretty good shape though, aside from deep marks/indentations on...

    Site for Third Party Used Teslas

    Hi all, Just wondering if anyone can share their favorite site for browsing used Teslas. - Ev-cpo.com is obviously the gold standard. Exactly the way it should be to filter by option, price range, location, etc. Only limitation is that it's restricted to Tesla-sold cars. I'm not ruling out...

    Why are all car paint colors so boring?

    This is not unique to Tesla. Paint colors have gotten so boring. I've been more attuned to colors ever since starting to seriously shop for a Model S. This made me take notice that on my drive to work today, other than my car, virtually every car I saw had absolutely no color. Every car was...

    VIN options decoder?

    As I become progressively more terrified of buying used through Tesla as I read this forum, I’m turning to third-party used Teslas as a viable alternative. The problem is that the information on these cars sold by dealerships is wildly inaccurate - 85 RWDs listed as P85Ds, 70s listed as 90s, and...

    Tesla "CPO" P85D for $43,900

    85 kWh Performance Model S 5YJSA1H21EFP63526 | Tesla Seems like a pretty screaming deal unless there's something flagrantly wrong. Mileage isn't terrible - 56.4k. My current lease isn't up until October, so I'm still just in reconnaissance mode. It does have body-colored roof which is a...

    Model S "CPO" vs. Standard Model 3?

    Hi all, Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I need some advice on car selection. I've had a Mercedes B-Class Electric Drive since 2014, and my (second) lease is up this October. The car is terrific and drives great (motor and battery made by Tesla, after all), but as an EV, it's a total...
