    Hi Every!

    We had a P85DL before and the suspension would usually be on "standard". We just bought a P100DL about 2 weeks ago and immediately when we got into the car we felt like we were riding a lot higher, and we checked and it was also on "standard".

    It appears to be sitting like an 1" higher than our old car. Was curious if anyone else had noticed this? There is nothing wrong, was just curious if Tesla made some changes?

    Also when we change the P100DL to High suspension it definitely raises like an extra inch higher than our old car did..

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    It's a more noble car, and you should sit slightly higher than the others.

    Or, get lowering links...

    Or, have Tesla re-calibrate all corners lower a bit, next time you're in for a service center visit. Seeing as it's a new car maybe you'll get lucky and have something else wrong with it that requires service. Plus, as a repeat customer, maybe they'll do this little adjustment for you as a courtesy.

    Probably not calibrated correctly. Service center should be able to perform a height calibration in about half an hour. Mine was just done and now it doesn't look like I'm driving around on high all the time :)
