    I am debating between the 19 and 21" wheels and was wondering if anybody had a picture of the MS with the 19" wheels and the air suspension to the lowest position?

    also, if you set the suspension to low and exit the car, does it stay that way when you get back in and start driving? When does it raise automatically?

    Surely somebody has an MS with air and 19" wheels and can simply drop the suspension to its lowest setting and take a picture?

    I can try to do that for you later if no one else does. But I don't think a single picture is going to do you much good. Depends upon the camera angle, the slope of the surface the car is sitting on, etc. We're talking about what, an inch or two of difference.

    If I do this for you I'll have the car as level as possible, the camera set on a tripod in a fixed position, and some sort of reference item next to the car so you can see how far it moved in each of the 4 positions. But I have kids and parental duties and it's gonna have to wait a few days before I can do that for you.

    Ok, just uploaded a set of 2 pictures each (distance and close up) for each of the 4 height settings at my flickr page. I'll share the standard and low (close ups) here for your consideration.
    (*sorry the car is so dirty, ran it through a touchless wash yesterday that did virtually nothing and set me back $9)

    @Kipernicus: You can't be a good ER doc without knowing how to triage and prioritize. Obviously, the Model S is a Level I.

    Shot the photos while my daughter worked on homework, downloaded while checking the homework, uploaded to Flickr while typing my reply to the thread, attached the Bbcode, hit send and jumped in the car 2 minutes later to get my son to track club!
