    Permanon Aircraft Supershine on my Tesla – supposedly the latest and greatest in car finishes

    I use Chemical Guys Mr. Pink soap and follow up with a maintenance coat of Permanon Silver. My Midnight Silver gleams. Love it.

    How Long Will You Keep Your MS?

    Until I can buy one that comes without a steering wheel. That's the dream.

    Major Colision Repair, Whats your experience?

    Sorry about the accident. A family member of mine drove my P85D into a tree at 40MPH. Front end was caved in. Insurance declared it a total loss. Your car looks like a total loss as well.

    P85D Ludicrous Pre-Order Upgrade Available 9/25/15

    $7500 for .2 seconds? No thanks. Had Tesla mentioned the .2 second difference earlier I never would have paid the deposit money. I was under the impression that the upgrade would bring it down to 2.8. Looks like I'm SOL. I'm gonna try and see if I can get a refund.

    Will the ludicrous upgrade improve P85D performance by only 0.2 seconds?

    Yup, they recently added that little tidbit to the website. When I put my ludicrous mode deposit down I was under the impression that 0-60 time would match the P90DL....looks like that isn't the case. On top of that the deposit is apparently non-refundable :frown:

    nYc - what energy supplier are you using with your Tesla?

    I don't use a supplier, I just pay whatever ConEdisons rate is. Should I look into ESCOs? I always stayed away after hearing horror stories from friends/neighbors 7-8 years ago.

    Think I found replacement lug nuts for the 21" wheels

    artsci, thank you for the suggestion. My new lug nuts are much better looking than OEM, plus they dont get all scratched and deformed by the slightest touch :smile:

    Tracking P85D delivery thread

    Anyone receive an email similar to this? It seems weird for Tesla to try and push their older seat, must have something to do with the next gen seat shortage. I called and told them I want my rear seats to be next gen. "I just tried reaching out a moment ago to see how you would like your...
