    @Rawad H.: If it is not on the Tesla website they don't sell it. So the answer is no on the tint and no on the tire insurance (although the new tires will come with the tire manufacturer standard warranty).

    Add parking sensors for $500 more, they charge over $6k to have them installed after delivery & having a bumper scrape repaired is going to cost a lot more then $500.

    Don't think they offer tire insurance.

    Duel chargers! Can't imagine charging without them.
    parking sensors a must. Air suspension is fantastic.

    Yay, another Michigander! Welcome!

    In my case, with money tight, I couldn't justify dual chargers just for the "what if", when I expect to always charge overnight or at a Supercharger or other DC charger. The only reason I even considered it was because installing it afterwards costs $2100 more than the factory installed price. It will be different for every person, so consider it carefully and don't just go with what people say (opinions are strong here).
    I agree with parking sensors for the reasons Lump said.
    I chose air suspension basically because I wanted the ownership experience. From the reviews I've read, people are happy with both suspensions and preference is kind of split between them for various reasons.
    I also chose fog lamps and subzero package since fog is common in the fall around where I live and it gets very icy in winter. At $500 each for a little added safety, comfort, and convenience, I thought it was worth it.

    I'm pretty sure that Discount Tire will sell you a tire warranty for the tires on any car purchased new within the past 30 days.

    Parking sensors and air suspension.
    I don't have parking sensors, and wish I had bought them initially.
    Air suspension is great. I figure raising and lowering the car may come in handy ( whether for a bad incline, or a big snowfall).
    btw...red is a great color :biggrin:
