    20" Model X Slipstream Wheels on Model S

    Hey, I am thinking about buying a set of 265/45 r20 tires with wheels and selling my 245/45 r19 wheels. Can you please tell me: 1) Will the 265/45 r20 ones fit our Model S? 2) Will the 265/45 r20 ones be stiffer than the 245/45 r19 ones? I suspect that the the 265/45 r20 will be softer...

    21" Tesla Model S Arachnid Wheels - Boston Area

    Are they summer or all season?

    Will the following size tires work on an S - 255/45 R20 and 275/45 R20

    You know what I am thinking, since we like to floor on red lights, we will definitely wear rear tires off before our 3 year lease ends. So we will definitely need to buy another pair. In that case, maybe get bigger rear winter tires now to enjoy the car in winter? What would you advice to get...

    Will the following size tires work on an S - 255/45 R20 and 275/45 R20

    I hear lots of slipping. And we are in chicago, so lots of red lights where my tires slip. I am torn because i heard on this forum that wider tires dont make a difference. Your experience gives me hope!

    Will the following size tires work on an S - 255/45 R20 and 275/45 R20

    Sorry for the offtop, but do you think that wider rear tires will help on a P100D? Or there is no noticeable difference? (I am on 245/45R19 Michelin Pilot now)

    Arw pre-Raven S/X more powerful?

    Driving a Raven S Performance now. 0-20 m/h it's already faster than tires can handle, so you don't need it any faster. After 20 m/h, maybe, but still, it's soo fast.

    Arw pre-Raven S/X more powerful?

    My guess is that Tesla will uncork Ravens soon. Why they made them so slow, I don’t know. Maybe to move those buyers to Performance S or Model 3 territory? We, for example, just leased P100D after 100D and are insanely happy.

    Model X - worth buying now

    Don't zip too much in Chicago - there are so many cameras out here. Just bought a Performance S and it's soooo much more convenient in Chicago)

    Raven wind noise?

    Has anybody soundproofed the glass roof? Maybe we can decrease both the wind noise and echo in the cabin?

    Model X - Buy or Lease

    A 3rd motor might end up being an incremental upate only, like higher efficiency, smaller size of the motor, more pull at 60m/h+, etc. The P is already so fast.

    Model X - Buy or Lease

    Leased a P100D today and am now thinking - maybe switch it to BUYING? It seems that the downpayment and the x36 monthly payment are way too much and we will be better off buying. Still deciding...

    "Performance Mode" Easter Egg in Raven Car

    Raven from test drives. Hope it stays!

    "Performance Mode" Easter Egg in Raven Car

    Got a P100D today. The menu works and the our guy says that it's going to say as we bought P. On our car i don't need to type performance, I just click the T. Let's wait and see if it does not disappear after a software update.

    Raven (non-performance) Maximum Power Output vs 100D

    Drove LR today, did not notice a difference with a Dec'18100D that got totalled 2 weeks ago. Maybe because it was not back to back.

    Raven (non-performance) Maximum Power Output vs 100D

    I am going to the SC to try out S LR again (because still debating between about LR and and P100D from test drives). Is there anything I can test with an iphone/android alone?

    Leasing/Buying? Lease Buy Out?

    If you plan to owe a car for just 3 years, would you buy or lease Raven P100D? Depreciation on this car is going to be HUGE, since Plaid drivetrain and other carmakers are coming out...

    Raven (non-performance) Maximum Power Output vs 100D

    I experienced that on a Raven X last week too. Our sales guy made a surprised face and said that maybe software update would fix this.

    Inventory S Long Range disappeared. Is it to sell more Model 3?

    The 50 LR cars that you are seeing are either not shippable without astronomical fees, or are a different configuration. In fact, there is none in Chicago. As for the sale, our adviser in Chicago says they DID stop it. So it's either buy P100D with Ludicrous (I would buy P100D with Insane...

    P3D vs S100D ?

    Yes, very nauseous. This week I drove P100D (19") in the morning and in the evening and found that it makes me nauseous all the time (I floor cars). I got really beaten up by my sit! I really wanted to love Ludicrous, but it's just too much for Chicago, you will hurt your neck, you will get a...

    Inventory S Long Range disappeared. Is it to sell more Model 3?

    We are trying to buy an inventory S Long Range and there are only few cars available. In contrast, there is a huge number of inventory Xs and Performance S on sale. Do you think that Tesla decreased the supply of S Long Range ones to make people trade down to 3 or trade up to S Performance...

    100D vs. P100D 0-60

    I immediately noticed exactly what this guy is talking about: in Sport mode 100D is noticebly faster than P100D: P.S. I would love Sport mode in P100D to be as quick as that in 100D. To me, Sport mode in 100D is a sweet spot. Ludicrous is a bit too much.

    P3D vs S100D ?

    Oh man, different folks different strokes. I did not like the air suspension in S100D in some cases, but Raven is SO awesome. Just go try it out and you will see. I concur what others have said. Tesla has given us S P100D till tomorrow and it's very serious stuff, I must tell you. Somebody on...

    Has Model S quality improved?

    Absolutely. Tesla is where you get best cars, not fake smiles. If you want that human interaction with sales people, just go to a place, which value proposition is customer service, say expensive restaurant with smiling waiters, who secretly hate you because you can afford the food they...

    P3D vs S100D ?

    3 feels like a downgrade after S with air or Raven suspension. The seats were tolerable (10 min drive), but the ride is not as luxurious. Will probably go with another S100D, its 3.6 sec is really fast enough.

    Love, Love, Love the new Raven Suspension!

    Could it be because of this huge glass roof?

    Raven adaptive suspension, how does it work?

    Thank you for the clarification. I always drive in Comfort, so I guess it's not going to be almost like pre-Raven to me.
  29. Green_Light

    Raven adaptive suspension, how does it work?

    Confused, so what is different? We had S100D and will now lease either Raven S 100D or Raven SP100D. In what settings will we notice the biggest difference? Thanks!

    Lease return charges

    Lease returns inspection results depend on who conducts your inspection. We were very lucky with our car, but who knows what happens next time.

    P3D vs S100D ?

    S did an AMAZING job, no body damage, not even a scratch, but the collision was pretty bad. Quiet is important, I suspect that the difference with Raven S is going to be even bigger. However, we drove a Raven X today and it was such a noisy car :( Yeah, the numbers say that P3D is just 0.4 sec...
  35. Green_Light

    P3D vs S100D ?

    Yeah, people say that M3 is more fun to drive, BUT model S is: 1) Quieter (and Raven MS should be even quieter than M3) and 2) Safer because it's bigger and heavier (guess who is more likely to survive if MS and M3 collide at 40 M/H each)

    P3D vs S100D ?

    We totaled our 5 month old S100D and are thinking about P3 or Peformance S. We were totally satisfied with our S100D, would not mind a stronger pull from 0 m/h :) So have 2 questions! 1) Driving: Has anybody tried both P3 and the newest S100D? How does P3 compare against S100D? 2) Comfort: Is...

    P3D vs S100D ?

    Has anybody tried both P3 and the newest S100D? We totaled our 5 month old S100D and are thinking about P3 or Peformance S. How does P3 compare againts S100D? And is Raven Model S way quieter than Model 3?

    What happens in an unlikely scenario if insurance decides to pay Tesla Finance MORE than what we owe? Can we use that money as a downpayment for a new Raven or get it back?

    Totalled S100D '19. When to lease a replacement?

    There are no deeply adjusted inventory cars now. And sales guys cannot ship cars from other states, unless it's a borderline state. 2 questions: Why do you think that this month is the right month to get the car? What do you think about taking over somebody’s lease? It’s a good option, but we...

    Totalled S100D '19. When to lease a replacement?

    Hi, My wife totalled a leased S100D today (just about 5 months old) and we need to lease a replacement. We assume that Progressive will pay :) Should we shop around now or wait some time for some October deals to come? And, since it's just a beginning of the lease, perhaps we can get a...
