    Any thoughts of the price of the model 3 going up if the steel/aluminum tariff goes thru?

    Like the title says, if the Trump plan for steel and aluminum tariffs goes into effect will this raise the price of the model 3 (and other cars). If so by how much and when?

    Where to find Demo Cars preferably Model S

    I am definitely thinking of purchasing a Model S and take advantage of the tax credit while I can. I then realized If I can find a demo car for a relatively cheaper price and take advantage of the tax credit at the same time that would be great. Does anyone have any recommendations or websites...

    2018 Nissan Leaf & ProPILOT Assist - Hands on

    If you would have told me 2-3 days ago that we would be the owners of a new 2018 Leaf SV with ProPILOT Assist I would’ve called you crazy, but that’s exactly what just happened today. After finding an ad for a rather substantial discount on a brand new model and being extraordinarily skeptical...

    Dirty Money

    i just watched the first episode of Netflix series Dirty Money. It was about VW and how corrupt the german automaker really is and at what lengths they will go to deceive the public. It’s a must watch for anyone who is wondering why some of us are never going to purchase another ICE vehicle.

    Red Vs Blue for Modal X, what would you pick

    Hi guys, I am about to order my new Modal X, and I'm really torn apart between red and blue color. I am 27 female living in LA. Red looks really sexy and blue looks cool and classy.

    Anyone regretting their purchase

    I was super excited to get my CPO 16 Model S 70D and sang praises to Tesla. However, in my 15 months of ownership and only 47,000 miles on the car I have been to the service center 8 times for three broken door handles (replaced with previous model not the new stronger ones), needing to have...

    Has anybody worked out the wall charger communication protocol yet?

    I charge my Model S entirely from Solar power in an off grid location. When the sun goes behind a cloud I need to adjust the charge rate down a bit so I don't flatten the house battery. To do this I need to talk to the wall charger to tell it how much it can have dynamically. I am 99.9% certain...

    Charging Etiquette?

    A random thought came in my mind. What is the community's opinion on asking to charge at a friend's or family member home? I personally think a lot of people would assume it would run their electric bill sky house (my parents thought so at first lol) So I wanted everyone else's opinion of it.

    I'm sure this has been considered, but...

    ...I'm going to ask it anyway. Since charge time is such a big deal with electric cars, is it possible to split a battery pack into 2 or more packs with each pack taking a charge from a separate Supercharger? And most importantly, would that speed up the charge time? It seems like it...

    Revamp EAP + FSD Purchase Terms?

    Since all new Tesla's contain the hardware for self driving - why doesn't Tesla treat EAP/FSD as software? For instance, wouldn't it be much better if Tesla tied EAP/FSD with the owner instead of the car? What if I can go to MyTesla and purchase EAP/FSD and tie the license to my car, when I...

    Dumb leasing question.
