    Solution to cold toes during winter

    Ok, even if you turn up the heater to toasty, odds are you toes are still kinda cold in our poorly insulated Roadster. As I was reading Engadget, came across this puppy on their CES reporting: Digitsole - The first connected insole: Click, warm and track! Insole warmer. Not sure how long it...

    Roadster Rear Blower Maintenance

    The guy told me 2.x fans mount in the bottom and sucks up all the dirt and crap. If you don't go in annually to have them cleaned, it will fail. Just passing info along.

    Will this hardtop fit?

    I know some people mentioned that Lotus Elise hardtop fits the roadster. Can anyone comment on if this item will fit? Seems real cheap compared to Mr. Fiat/Tesla solution. I sen the seller a message but I doubt he/she will know definitively if it fits a Roadster. Lotus Elise Exige S2 Short...

    I'm preparing a letter to my landlord at my office to "advise" him of the virtues of adding a charging station to the stripmall. Does anyone have a sample letter for such a purpose? Thanks. Jack

    Building a house

    I'm in the process of designing my next house with a 4-car garage. Currently, I have a Roadster and 2 other ICE. Eventually, it'll be a roadster + model S + ICE or Model X + ICE. Either way, charging will be needed. I was wondering what are people's thoughts on the ideal garage...

    Diminished value due to accident

    I decided on the Roadster forum because I figured Roadster owners may have greater insight to the subject. Someone backed into my Roadster (2nd time, different person) and broke my bumper. All damage limited to the bumper. I want to claim diminished value with their insurance company because...

    110v charging and extension cord

    While charging at my parents condo garage, this is what I experienced. I had to use extension cord, 12 gauge, on advise of others in another thread. I would sometimes get a "extension cord detected" warning on my 1.5 - however, the charging would continue. This of course, worries me. So...

    Vinyl Wrap

    Just to throw this out there. My 1.5 is silver. Its nice silver, but so very bland. So I was thinking about one of those vinyl full body wraps. Upside is that its reversible and reasonable pricing. However, the colors are all matte. Which can either stand out like a sore thumb or stand out...

    Loud clunk

    I've noticed that after driving in the rain and parking the car in the garage, and driving again the next morning, this happens: When shifting to reverse, the car doesn't move (no creep). Then pressing on the accelerator pedal lightly, it then moves but with a fairly loud clunk sound. Perfectly...

    Noise Reduction Kit

    I'm too cheap to fork over $4k for Tesla's noise reduction kit so I did an alternate route. Someone recommended using RaamAudio instead of Dynamat cuz its supposed to be better and slightly cheaper. So I bought RaamAudio padding. Had my trusty local guy install it along with the HID kit...

    Check low beam bulb error

    Got that error but it's working fine. On both sides it said on VDS. Does that mean its about to die?

    Public charging stations in Vancouver?

    I want to drive my Roadster to Vancouver but my parents live in a condo and thus no charging facilities there. Based on some of the apps from my iPhone, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of choices for public charging stations in Vancouver. So I have two questions: 1) is there another...

    Sales Tax?

    Question. Does a 2008 Roadster qualify for sales tax exemption in the State of Washington? I know the exemption applies for purchase of new vehicles, but does it also for used electric vehicles?

    2008 Roadster

    Hello I'm considering a 2008 Roadster having just cancelled my Model S reservation. I do have a few questions and I apologize if it been covered before.
