    Paydirt's (TSLA) Option Investing Guide

    INTRO TO GUIDE This is for long-term investors... There's a huge opportunity with options that 99% of uber Tesla bulls are simply missing. If the company is grows exponentially as they have--most have reasonable confidence they will--then the investment could be best in an exponential...

    Long storage...any service required?

    Just home from a 6 week absence. Stored my M3 SR+ as advised by many (plugged in; charge set at 50%; wheels over inflated; and carpet under wheels). Now that I am home (and not really surprised) I am noticing some 'stickiness/tightness' on my first (short and slow) drive - wheels and breaking...

    Long term issues, reliability, concerns? Lease or finance?

    The lease on my current car runs out in May, and I’m seriously considering making the switch to EV and going with a Tesla. Probably going with the Model 3 Performance, but I’m curious if anyone that bought a Model 3 a few years ago has had any long-term issues, or heard of any other owners...

    Optimal battery management

    I bought my used S85 with the intention of having it for 15 or 20 years. That means that, while Tesla have done a good job at putting in systems to reduce battery degradation regardless of user habits, I am keen to do everything in my power to minimise the degradation. Am I right in thinking...

    Charging Question...

    So I've had my vehicle for about a month. I plan to keep it for a long time (hopefully 10-20 years) and am very interested in preserving the battery as long as possible, as I'm sure many others are. I've read a ton on this and have found that the general consensus is 50-90 percent for day to...

    Long term rental arrangement - LA

    Hi TMC-- I'm throwing this out as a feeler, hoping for true input from members as to the feasibility of this and to see if I can garner any interest. Please keep trolling comments to yourself if you cannot offer constructive feedback. I am the proud new owner of a blue 2016 Model S60, having...

    Short term vs. Long term investing

    There seems to be a lot of chatter about options, call spreads and such. While such conversation generates interest, I seriously doubt it competes with "Buy and Hold". I am all-in on Tesla and it is a ten bagger for me. But if you read the forums, you would get the impression that I am a...
