    Here's an alternative source for the same Blackvue DR650GW-2CH dashcam from Amazon. It is available for $311.07 with free Prime shipping and 128GB Blackvue SD card. It is only slightly more expensive than the 32GB version mentioned above.

    Ouch! Meeting with a tow hitch....

    I'm so sorry to see what happened to your beautiful Roadster, Nigel. It hurts just to look at it. I'm amazed that such a low speed collision did so much damage. Glad no one got hurt. The only bright side may be that it's easier to deal with a few replacement bumper parts than a body shop. Good...

    Escort MAX 360 mount options and questions

    My Escort 360 appears to be working when mounted in this location. However, what I cannot say is what effect, if any, the windshield has on the range of the detector.

    Production (Non-Sig) Model X Vin #'s now being issued

    Thanks for the reply, Peter. It would have been nice to get regular status updates on the MyTesla website like they do with the Model S.

    Production (Non-Sig) Model X Vin #'s now being issued

    For those who's Model X are currently in or finished production, did you see an update on My Tesla dashboard? In other words, is the Tesla website accurate in updates on the status of the order beyond just "confirmed"?

    Vendor Tesla's Paint Correction and Total Surface Protection Specialist

    Beautiful work, as always, Pete! Have you done any XPel wrap on the Model X yet? Is there a template available?

    Ludicrous Upgrade Scheduling?

    Thanks for all the responses. That's good to know. Sounds like they just want the battery to be < 20%.

    That's an excellent suggestion to avoid seeing outdated data.

    Ludicrous Upgrade Scheduling?

    Does anyone share my concern that draining the battery pack may affect its longevity? Or am I over reacting?

    WPB Area X owners, care to trade demo rides?

    Sorry to hear that. May I ask why? We configured our X last month without seeing it or driving it in person. It's a total leap of faith. We take some comfort in the fact that the initial reviews from the Signature X owner seems to be mostly positive. Any specific concerns about the car based on...

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    I do not own a pair of pliers large enough to do that, but that certainly works as well.

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    I just installed all the replacement lights from Abstract Ocean yesterday. Overall, it wasn't difficult. Start with Pete's excellent installation guide. Here are some additional hints which might help. Trunk and Frunk Lights: These are the easiest as everyone has said. However, the first time I...

    Escort MAX 360 mount options and questions

    I recently purchased the Escort Max 360. While I cannot test the range of the radar detector as compared to anther car, I can say that it does work. I have it mounted to the right of the rear view mirror. If you purchase the straight cord, It is possible to hide the power cord along the...

    Thank you Jerome

    I'm sad to hear of Jerome's permanent departure from Tesla. I kind of suspected as much when he takes this much time off right before the critical Model X launch. Jerome intervention was critical in my Model S inventory car purchase. To me, his words and actions were that of a customer advocate...

    Thanks for sharing, Bonnie. This is awesome. Can't wait to see it in person.

    Just ordered! Really looking forward to see in my trunk for once. Thanks for the vote of confidence on this DIY project. Most of us do not possess your mad skills! :smile:

    Hmmm... I wonder if the upgrade will do any harm to the battery pack if it needs to be completely drained. :confused:

    The Perfect Tesla Raffle

    Alan, My original question was about the similarity between the idea described in this Planet Money podcast which I referenced above and the Climate XChange's strategy for reducing carbon emissions. I remember when I first heard this podcast 2 years ago, I thought this seems like a great idea...

    The Perfect Tesla Raffle

    Listen to the podcast again. At ~2:43, they start to talk about a income tax refund for the total amount of the tax collected.

    The Perfect Tesla Raffle

    Pollux, I was browsing the Climate XChange website. Is the organization's basic strategy for reducing carbon emission the same or similar to this podcast on Planet Money? Economists Have A One-Page Solution To Climate Change : Planet Money : NPR

    Homelink very flaky

    I've had the same intermittent malfunction with my HomeLink as well. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to it. Getting closer to the garage and being in line with the opener doesn't help.

    Modifications to car made since delivery

    I don't think AMAZING even begins to describe what you've done, Rick. It is truly impressive set of mods. How do you like the Rydeen 360 system? Does it replace your front camera?

    Service Center in Naples?

    I've heard similar rumors in the past as well. For selfish reasons, I think Bonita Springs might be a better location. :tongue: I think Bill would agree.

    Configuration of 2 captains chairs and 6 seats is available now.

    Oh no! Here we go again with the center console. Sigh.

    Will MX fit in my garage?

    @ohmman How did you get these dimensions for the MX? Source? Hopefully the official specs will be more favorable for your garage (and mine).

    Model X Signature Configuration has begun!

    I know some people may think this is a small thing, but I for one am very glad to see that the X will be delivered with an integrated front center console. Now if only it comes with rear cup holders as well... :wink:

    Does the $5k P85D upgrade get you a ludicrous P85D or a ludicrous P90D?

    @wk057 Thanks for the info regarding cell level fuses. However, I gotta think that Tesla engineers must have considered and tested that before the upgrade to the ludicrous mode is offered to existing P85D owners. The question is... will you do the upgrade?? Do you think it's safe?
  38. Madartist

    Looking at the $numbers P90D

    I think the upgrade path is only available to current P85D owners.

    Must have accessories?

    There's no need rebalance the tires after installing FOBO. Here's the info directly from the FAQ on their website. Does FOBO Tire Plus affect tire balancing? FOBO Tire Plus sensor weight is 10 grams each but extensive testing has shown a maximum deviation of 5 grams on the wheel balancer...

    Mine CF rear console broke as well in exactly the same way with very minimal use. Tesla replaced it, but had to wait as well due to back order. Let's hope the replacement will last longer.

    Model S Premium Center Console - Only in Black

    I'm so sorry to hear that. One thing I think we can all agree on is that Tesla handled this issue very poorly from beginning to end. I hope they will offer a new option for everyone soon. Along with door pockets and better cup holders, I'm one who thinks that both front and rear center consoles...

    Model S Premium Center Console - Only in Black

    Nigel, I've been on the waiting list since October 2013 as well and just got an email with an offer to purchase one. As noted up thread, I would suggest sending an email to onlineorders at teslamotors.com to inquire about your status. Might speed things up a bit. Good luck.
