    Would you be willing to ship to Canada? I'd be interested.

    Edit : I would pay for the shipping extra if that was not clear.

    While it's OT, you're spot on. I run stock 19's on my S85 and think about swapping to 21's all the time. But then (until now) the rational in me reminds me of all the down sides of the 21's.

    Thanks @mankanstar, I agree, the roof rack does work great. Reason I'm selling is I finally gave in and bought an ICE truck for the occasional camping/skiing trip with the family. I just couldn't stand taking the Tesla to state parks any more, stuffed with camping/skiing gear. It did work, but I really felt bad. That's why I bought a used beater SUV, and thus no need for the roof rack anymore.

    What did you feel bad about? Is it just that you like to keep your S pristine and that's hard to do with camping gear, skis and dirt roads? I ask because 95% of our driving is for ski/camping trips of some sort and we couldn't be happier with the S for that purpose. Great traction in bad weather, plenty of power for any situation, and handles like a dream -- better than any car I've ever driven, even when loaded down with five people, a full trunk/frunk, and a Yakima Skybox 21 on the roof. It does get filthy and I do occasionally worry about rocks flying up on long dirt roads, but ultimately this is what we got the car for and I'm prepared to live with the consequences. To each his own of course, I'm just curious if you had any particular scares or if you're merely trying to keep it in a "luxury" state.

    To add to what some others have said, I cannot give enough praise to the Whispbar. It's easy to install, very sturdy, and of course has great compatibility and endless possibilities coming from Yakima. I was weary about giving up our X reservation for an S given our aforementioned use case, but the Whispbar has convinced me we made the right decision. It's great to be able to throw it on and have a ton of extra storage space and a place to put dirty gear that isn't inside the car, and it's also great to be able to take it off and increase range and sportiness when that storage is unnecessary. It makes the car a great deal more versatile and functional.

    You know, living in Northern California means we're all completely OCD about keeping our cars cleaner than new. Driving in the rain (if and when it rains, maybe twice a year) is reason enough for a full detail. That aside, i do agree that the S is a pefect car for camping/skiing trips - especially with a roof rack.
