    Firmware 6.1

    If you also got the Tech package I would think Tesla would owe you $500. I had the old $3,750 tech package and parking sensors and got TACC with the 6.1 upgrade.

    Bad seal in little window triangles in front doors

    It took 30 minutes to replace the part. Just hope they have the part on hand.

    Bad seal in little window triangles in front doors

    It's a part that they happened to have in stock when they fixed mine. The part is fairly large and I think it fits down into the door.

    Bad seal in little window triangles in front doors

    Noticed the wind noise from the right front triangle window immediately after delivery. Brought can in a week later and they replaced the complete part. No more noise. Great service.

    "Other...Updates" (to the Model S, aside from 'D')

    I just picked up my car today. It appears to have the new updates listed in the OP's thread. It has 6.0 and the speed assist and lane warnings software is all there. Other parts of the safety convenience features will trickle out in the next few months.

    Detailing of car before delivery

    It didn't work. I asked my DS for a release form that I could sign to not have any detailing done to the car. I got my answer back a couple of days later. "Regarding your request to forego detail, I ran this request by my service manager. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate this...

    The 19" wheels that are coming with my S85 are 8.5 inches wide. The aftermarket wheels I am looking at are 9" wide. I'm staying with the same tires (Michelin Primacy). Is this 1/2" difference a no no? I've been told that this will work fine but I would like to hear from actual owners their...

    Vendor The Tire Rack is proud to be a part of teslamotorsclub.com !

    I have a question for doc@tirerack. My Tesla is coming next month with 19" wheels. These wheels are, I believe, 8.5" wide. The new wheels I'm looking at are 9" wide. I am going to stay with the same tires. Will this be OK? Thanks

    Detailing of car before delivery

    Thanks for the replays. I'll contact my DS again and ask for a release from Tesla that I would sign to not have the car waxed. I'll see if that works. Thanks again, Gary

    Detailing of car before delivery

    I have a question. My car will be delivered at the end of September. I am planning to have the car OptiCoated the next day. My detailer requested to not have Tesla detail the car as it makes more work for him. I requested that to my Delivery Specialist but she said that it can't be done...

    Nice going John. Way to spread the word. I may not be quite to their age, I'm only 72, but I'll bet that a lot of older people are just as interested and concerned about things like the environment as much as the younger generation (maybe even more so!) And you would almost have to be dead to...

    highest VIN number in production?

    This thread made me look at My Tesla again, for the second time today. And lo and behold I have a VIN - 53743. I confirmed my order on the 4th of July. I figured mine might be taking longer since I ordered a brown car and that is about the least popular color. Delivery late September but...

    Stolen Model S crashes after police pursuit. 7/4/14

    This reminds me of the Enzo Ferrari that split in half after hitting a telephone pole on the 101 just north of Malibu around 8 years ago. I saw the engine compartment laying in the street and the front half near the telephone pole around 200 feet away. Fortunately after hitting the pole neither...

    Just Ordered

    I ordered mine 2 days ago. October delivery. My first house came with 14 acres of land, barn, guest house and cost 1/4 the cost of my TESLA. But then I was making 1/5 of what I was making before I retired. I'm replacing a Prius so gas savings won't be so much. Will be charging at my son's...
