    HV Battery Replacement Guide For Early MS 85kWh Pack Including Part Numbers And Prices (April/May 2023)

    Kinda bummed to see in the video that the peak speed wasn't higher with the new battery but def seems to hold higher rate for longer in the charge curve. Even my original P85D battery I'd hit peak speeds up to 130kwh recently on some chargers, while brief its def improved a bit since charge gate...

    What the Plaid needs to win at the track

    Plaid doesn't need much to win at the track for the casual customer aka 99.9% of their customer base. The car wasn't MADE for drag racing. Having 'drag strip mode' is literally a byproduct of every performance model S before it with Insane+/Ludacris+ 'launch mode'. All it's doing is enabling...

    Demo Drive done, couple of questions

    3. the car is speed limited to what ride heights it can use before it auto lowers. High will go up to 35 mph, 25 very high I believe the rest defaults to standard unless you have a speed set to trigger it to lower to the low setting. 4. its allegedly been in the works to split the audio but...

    Those wheels really transform the car. I can't even tell it's a Model S anymore.

    Show off your aftermarket wheels.

    Yeah it's crazy to think how much a few degree of camber affects fitment. I think everyone's ideal wheel fitment for 'flush' fitment specs is based on the car having -2* ish of camber which makes sense for most stock applications. But when the camber is reduced with aftermarket arms the fitment...

    Man fatally shot during altercation at Tesla charging station

    Heard there was a shooting there today over the use of charging. Curious to see more info as it comes available. Guessing it had to do with the stupid general parking vs charging.

    The most unhappy place on Earth?

    Agreed, most of the other car forums I'm on are typically people requesting info how to mod specific things, DIYs, photo galleries, suggestions for specific mods. The model S is has less aftermarket support compared to the 3, also there's not much mods outside of cosmetics available. DIY repair...

    Cannot disable tow mode on Model S 2017

    tow mode is not for doing the towing, its for enabling the car to free roll when the vehicle requires a tow on a flatbed or something.

    Prob because a famous person, Paul Walker, died in the same type of vehicle and Porsche knowing only other people of that status (celebs/rich people) can afford said car they don't need anymore bad stigma for a part failure.

    any evidence rush for 2016 S 100's SC01 is becoming false fever?

    Agreed, 99.9% of the time I charge at home even with free supercharging the inconvenience of going somewhere to sit and charge isn't worth it. And this coming from someone who's office was walking distance from a supercharger, when I was in the office. When I first got my car I was like sweet...

    Upgraded charge rates for older Model S

    Just recently roadtripped back from FL to CO and I'd see peak 130kwh on my P85D when at 6% SOC and hold to 58kwh +/- @ 50% SOC outside temp 36 deg. Def seems improved over the last year or so. I'll take what I can get.

    Lug Nut Recommendations

    If you're just in need of OEM wheel style lug nuts I run the Gorilla 6147CX on my Model X winter wheels. They aren't as soft and crappy as the stock nuts and haven't had any problems with them after taking them on/off for a couple years during wheel swaps. They are closed end so no need for the...

    2022 Model S. Condensation in both of my headlights, Tesla refuse to replace them.

    Most evap controls on headlights and taillights are on the back side of the housing to purposely prevent water intrusion so their logic is flawed how the PPF would prevent that.

    according to their logic when you remove the PPF and it still has problems they will replace it right? lol

    2022 Model S. Condensation in both of my headlights, Tesla refuse to replace them.

    I had condensation in my taillight and they replaced it under warranty for my 2015. I can't imagine why they wouldn't do a headlights on a new car. Maybe reach out to another service center?

    Just be aware flow forged is not a true forged wheel. But it should be better than a basic cast wheel but wouldn't rule out bending one again in the future. The problem is unless your wheel was designed to use OEM lugnuts you should run aftermarket. The seating surface for aftermarket wheels/lug...

    The beginning of the end of free Supercharging ?

    The fact they tried to unsuccessfully remove premium connectivity to legacy vehicles in the past without backlash I don't see how they would be able to successfully do the grandfathered supercharging. It's just a ploy to get people to upgrade but it's not even remotely enticing at the cars...

    Big Brake Kit Owners Question regarding factory warranty | BBK

    Pretty sure they aren't allowed to void your warranty for modifications. They are allowed to decline warranty repairs on items that they would need to deem caused the issue but can't outright just blame your HV battery failure due to you installing brakes.
