    Don't trust automatic gear selection on refreshed Model S.

    I never heard so many whiners and complainers in my life. Don't use it!

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    The 10th digit of a VIN is the year. M is a 2021, N is a 2022.

    2021+ Model S Refresh - white interior thread

    I ordered early July. First said October, then blank for about 6 weeks, then late October to mid November (forgot the dates), then blank for about a week, then Dec 4th -24th. It has stayed that way for about 2 weeks now. From what I've been reading here, I half expect it to change to either...

    Model S range and interior update imminent?

    Red interior - didn't Elon tweet last year that we'd see a red interior option in 2019?

    Replacing original nosecone front bumper vs aftermarket upgrade

    Does anyone know a good shop that can install the Unplugged refresh bumper in the Central Florida area? If not, any where in Florida?

    A/C and Ventilated Seats

    Thanks for your input, ohmman. I'm glad to hear you actually feel an airflow from the seats. One day, when I get a new S, I'd love to get the ventilated seats, as I live in Florida. I'm assuming they will be available in the Model S one day, and hoping they will work as well as they did in my...

    A/C and Ventilated Seats

    I don't have an X, but have had a/c seats in many other cars. Three Mercedes felt like they barely worked at all. Lexus was a little better, but Cadillac would freeze my behind off if left in high. I don't think you ever really feel much, if any, air flow, but somehow Cadillac seamed to...

    Double Updates? Didn't Think This Could Happen

    It's probably another update. I did one a few weeks ago and just got another one today.

    Autopilot improvement in "MarioKart Rainbow Road" firmware update?

    Mine won't work with 4, 5, or 6 quick pulls. I've tried every combination that I can think of.

    Autopilot improvement in "MarioKart Rainbow Road" firmware update?

    With new update, my autosteer is now practically perfect - drives as straight as an arrow in the center of the lane. It used too wander just a little, sometimes. Now - perfect! It drives better than I do. I love it. I can't get Mario Kart road to show up though.

    Autopilot improvement in "MarioKart Rainbow Road" firmware update?

    Has anyone been able to access the Rainbow Road in their Model S? Elon said, "Activate autopilot 4X in quick succession for psychedelic cowbell road." It doesn't work for me and I did the latest software download this week.

    Poll: How do you feel about Grill-less front end styling?

    It's horrible, laughable, ridiculous and I'd never buy the car the way the front is. The rest of the outside is great. Doesn't need a grill, but needs something. Embarrassing!
  23. David J

    Grill Me!

    Mihai75's rendition is not only the best, it's wonderful. Turns the car into super sharp from ugly duckling, even embarrassing.

    Front End... Hmmmmmm

    Like one reader noted, "pig snout". What a shame, and here I was so excited about it. Hopefully, they can/will modify it because I can't get beyond that front - laughing stock. If not, then everyone behind me will move up one place.
  25. David J

    Front End... Hmmmmmm

    Cool looking car except for the front. It needs something there, and it doesn't have to be much. It reminds me of Lord Voldemort the way it is now, and that's not a good thing.

    What is the difference between 70 vs 70D MPGe? Which one should I get?

    I would not get D unless you need it for snow. Extra cost, something else to go wrong, extra whine, smaller frunk and a little torque steer also. That's what I found. You should drive both back to back and see for yourself.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I don't have mine yet, but I didn't like the regen braking either on my test drive. I dialed it down to the lower setting and it was like a normal car. However, I'm anxious to try it again and see if I can get used to one foot driving - saves energy and brake wear. I guess when you want to...

    Driver Profile not key specific???

    Those with the childish responses have probably never owned a luxury car before - although I'm sure they will chime in with a made up list. In any case, it sounds like the easiest remedy is to program in the exit feature to both profiles. I'm 6'3" and my wife is 5'4", so it's always been a...

    Just saw delivery estimate go from Nov to Jan!

    I ordered an S90 in September and asked for a 2016. My delivery has always been late January - February. A few weeks ago I was notified that it is scheduled to enter production on January 4th. Yesterday, on a Saturday, I got both an email and a voice mail left on my cell phone stating that if...

    Heavy rains in Missouri. Free shower from my pano roof.

    I would have passed on the pano but my two boys and I are all 6'3" - not enough headroom without it. In any other car, the sun roof reduces headroom.

    My CPO (and disappointments) Experience

    If paint work is done at shops that don't deal with car-fax, then car-fax can't report it. People get their cars painted all the time without going through insurance - they don't want their rates to go up. On the other hand, someone may have their fender painted for a scratch, and if done with...

    My CPO (and disappointments) Experience

    Adding to this discussion late, but, I was heartsick to hear about Cyclone's disaster . Someone wrote that if you don't want a used car, buy new. To be clear, CPO cars in the industry are not just detailed used cars. They are supposed to represent the elite of used cars. That means going...

    When does a Model S become a 2016?

    Come on guys, it's a no brainer issue. Yes, there is no difference in the cars made right before the cutover to a new year and the ones produced after the cutover. Tesla is like no other car company in this regard. They add new features and upgrades as they become available. In fact, I'm...

    What delivery month should I select to ensure a 2016 VIN?

    I ordered in September and told my rep I wanted a 2016. He made a note on my order and now I have been notified that mine is scheduled to be made the week of January 4, 2016, with a late Jan/early Feb delivery. The car will be identical to a 2015, but if I sell it in 2 or 3 years, I'm sure it...

    Model S - HPWC (High Power Wall Connector)

    Thanks for the quick response. My wife and I are the only two people who live in the house. I have only used a 240V outlet probably twice in my life - both times for moving day into a new house, to plug in a dryer. This outlet will be in the far corner of a 3 car garage - away from...

    Model S - HPWC (High Power Wall Connector)

    I am installing an HPWC with 50 amp service. I have run two copper 6 gauge hot wires and a ground (romex) from my circuit breaker box to the wall unit, about 60 feet total. I want to also install a 14-50 outlet next to the HPWC in case it fails/requires service. I will put a simple connector...

    Okay, thanks guys. I'll do that tomorrow morning.

    Change order

    I tried that, and it seemed to create the change. I hit the done button, but when I pull up my documents page, it still shows the original configuration and purchase price.

    Change order

    I placed an order for my car, and I'm still in my one week "grace period". How do I make a change? Do I have to call my sales person or corporate? I thought I could do it my self on line.

    Are the news Ds finally quiet (no front motor noise)?

    I just test drove a 70 and 2 85D's. They didn't have a 70D to test. Even though I live in Florida and don't really need all wheel drive, I was planning on buying a D since it's the latest technology, better range, acceleration, etc. But the front motor noise was too obnoxious for me, both on...
