    19" Gemini vs 20" Induction?

    Hoping to purchase a LR AWD Model Y once the new center consoles start becoming a little more prevalent. I test drove a LR Y recently and it had the 19" Gemini Wheels. Although I loved how smooth the ride quality was I personally think they're hideous. I would probably go for the 20" Induction...

    3 years on, I have decided to move on from my beloved X

    Qualifying statement: We're a family of 4. The shortest person is 5'10". We have two dogs, each 65 lbs that travel everywhere with us (by everywhere, I mean they jump into the car for a CVS run). Don't get me wrong, I love my Model X and I wish I didn't have to sell it but 10 days in a BMW X7...

    Model Y comparable to Model 3 (Driving experience)

    Today I drove both model Y and model 3 to check the driving experience. Model 3 feels towards the ground and steering is amazing and turns are very clean and I could really feel the car in ground. On the other hand, model Y doesn't seem to be that much towards the ground, but comfort was the...

    Model Y Stiff Ride Softening Recommendations

    Hello we recently purchased a 2020 MDY Long range 20inch induction wheels and in general we love everything about the car, but we live in New York City and with the really bad roads here we're finding the ride to be a little too stiff. We have a baby so my wife rides in the back seat quit often...

    Next Gen Seat CPO - comfort for a full sized guy

    I am looking at some 2016 CPO model S options and the seat choices are all over the place but mostly are either next gen seats or the premium seats (although these models are usually more expensive). I am about 5'9 and a bit over 200 lbs and from posts I've been reading many complain that the...

    Replacing middle row, Model X 7 seater

    Heavy user here. 70,000 Miles in 25 months. I've noticed that the middle row has become supremely uncomfortable for the occupants over time. I am seriously looking into getting them replaced with different seats. The issue was especially apparent when I compared them against a RAM 1500 truck...

    Possible drivers seat issue model 3?

    The last handful of times I have been getting in the car to sit down I have felt my rear hit metal which I did not used to. At first I thought it was just a one off but on further investigation or at least it feels like it to me I can feel 2 bolts through the seat I did not used to feel when...

    Retrofitting front seats - experiences?

    Hi folks, I thought I'd ask here before I pester the nice people at my local Service/Sales center (goodness knows they have enough to do). We bought a new LRMS in Dec 2019, and I think the front seats are different than in the MS we test drove about a year before (maybe the design changed in...

    Comfort and noice levels on LR AWD vs Performance

    Can someone that test-drove (or maybe owns ? ) both, comment on the difference in comfort and noise levels on the two cars? I understand that Performance has lowered suspension and 20" wheels but how much of a difference does it fell during normal driving? And is there any difference on...

    seating comfort problem - Solutions?

    Wife and I went to showroom to just sit in a model s to see if she liked it. I currently have an A6 Audi because she didn't like the feel of the seats in the A4. She sat in the passenger seat of a new 100D and promptly stated that it was very a uncomfortable seat and she hated it. I had my...

    Model 3, pedal space to rest left foot?

    On the Model S, there is no space behind the pedals to rest your left foot on long drive. The Model X has enough to rest yours between the brake pedal and the dead pedal. Can someone tell me if the 3 is closer to the S or X in this regard?

    Fixing/Changing Seat Ergonomics

    So, there's no two ways around it, my Model X seats are not great. I've been in touch with a couple of local upholstery shops to see if it's possible to change the lumbar support and extend the seat base for better thigh support, and maybe look at any other issues. Curious if anyone else has...

    Control Parameters Do Not Stick

    I set Steering to COMFORT and Acceleration to CHILL but it doesn't stay. Later when I check the screen I find that it no longer shows those choices. My car is a 2017 Model S 75. Does this happen to anyone else?

    Is Tesla Model S Heating/Cooling Effective like ICE cars?

    Hi folks, I am about to take delivery of my Model S (feels like I have been saying that for a year now, hurry up Tesla!!). Recently I came across a few threads and a video where folks pointed out peculiar problems with the heating and cooling effectiveness of Teslas. A number of folks say that...

    Seat belt on neck

    I know I've seen this thread a couple of times, but I figured I'd post to see if there was any new information available. I'm a proud new owner of an S 90D and extremely happy with my purchase. The one problem I'm having is that I'm very short (5'0") and the seat belt rubs against my neck. I've...

    Are leather seats in a Model X worth it?

    Hi everyone! I am considering not getting Leather seats in my planned Model X order due to the price of them. I know that in the Model S the next generation seats are more plushy than the multpattern seats. Do the cloths seats and the leather seats in the Model X feel the same? Or are the...

    Which steering mode do you use most often and why?

    What steering mode do you use?

    Curious, what setting do you like and why? Driving home from the factory I thought "wow, this car is squirrely, I can hardly hold a straight line on the freeway!" I quickly put it on Sport and it felt much more stable. Today, I was looking at the Controls screen and discovered that I was...
