Missing Roadster items from Tesla shopping page...?

    While checking the update for Model 3 content, noticed only the car cover and hardtop bag for Roadster now. No headlights, wheels, 3.0 battery upgrade, carbon fiber bits, etc...:eek:

    Let's hope this is temporary as they update the site. Otherwise the Roadster appears prominently listed in the Tesla lineup.

    Or perhaps we need to log in to see Roadster items now?

    Just to add: didn't see any other items after logging in.

    Again, seems a bit odd given that the Roadster is plainly there (not forgotten) in the model lineup...

    Already been discussed:

    Roadster 3.0

    I also gave them a call and they are in the process of converting from the old shopping pages to the new format.

    Looks like they're taking some time on this. (Page is the same, not that we're counting or anything...):rolleyes:

    Still down...

    I just called my service center today and placed an order for the Xenon Headlamp Retrofit, which was thankfully still in stock. So...that's probably the best course of action for anyone hoping to order parts right now.

    I had been trying to order the Adjustable Suspension for the past couple of months, but both SC's in the metro Phoenix area told me it is no longer available.

    Perhaps it will magically re-appear down the line.

    Yes, still only two Roadster items listed in the online store, the indoor cover and the hardtop storage bag. Hmm...

    If I recall correctly, it used to be something like a ridiculous $2600 for the Xenon HID headlights? I don't remember exactly. I just remember it being expensive. I don't know if the price had changed recently.

    I ended up buying it for my car because the stock headlights are so atrocious.

    Just a quick note to say the 3.0 Battery Upgrade is now listed on the page. Would imagine other items will turn up eventually...:rolleyes:

    It's $2,900 or so after tax & installation for the Xenon Retrofit. It is a complete headlight assembly retrofit. They don't seem to peel like the stock set, and they have a very attractive appearance. The thicker black outline around the lights really modernizes it. It's to the point where I can notice a Roadster with Xenon Retrofit from a mile away vs. the stock setup.

    Or maybe I'm just an insane geek and only I notice these differences. Oh well.
    I'm smitten with them on my 2.0 so I had to buy them for a friend's car.

    I think I've read a few reports here that the HID's still can peel unfortunately. My local SC was kind enough to put a clear bra protective film on my HID's after installation at no charge. I was quite grateful.

    Do you have a pic of what it looks like? I absolutely love the Roadster design but the stock headlight enclosure is starting to look a bit dated, oh well its still very unique!

    Don't get your hopes up, the Xenon ones also are prone to peeling. Put covering over it, cheap insurance.

    @wiztecy & @shrink - Solid point. I have had good luck so far...though I'll probably cover them when I redo a couple of areas of Paint Armor soon.

    @backmost - here's a close-up of mine.
