    I check the Tesla Shop pretty frequently. Lately I have noticed that a number of parts that were out of stock are now available for purchase again. Carbon fiber door sills, carbon fiber hard tops, the Roadster High Power Wall Connector, and others.

    I just ordered the carbon fiber interior set, and it's out for delivery. So at least some of these parts exist. But I can't imagine Tesla is producing any more HPWCs. What's going on here?

    I noticed that too. I put out a probe to my local SC to see if the CF tops really ARE in stock, but no reply so far.

    It's a huge win for our Roadster community if they're still making cables and accessories!

    Let me know what happens. I might have spoken too soon by saying the set is out for delivery. Until I see the parts, I won't believe it.

    I wish Tesla would be more communicative about the parts supply, new PEMs being produced, etc. The community of Roadster owners is so small—what do they have to gain by keeping us in the dark?

    P.S.—I loved reading your Electric Blue Upgrade thread! Not to give you any ideas, but these do come in black... :)

    Do you want a hard top? I have one I'm not using. It's black. Not bare CF.

    And indeed the carbon fiber parts were real and in stock. Pictures coming in a separate thread.

    I don't see the adjustable suspension listed on the Roadster parts page. Anyone know if that's still available?

    I believe so, because Tesla just quoted a UK owner £3500 to fit it.

    Good to know. Thanks. I'll have my local SC inquire about the parts.

    Well, my local SC has been unable to locate the parts for the adjustable suspension. Maybe they'll turn up in the future, but doesn't seem to be happening right now.

    It's hardly a necessity for me right now, so I'll happily save my money - or maybe put a 3.0 battery deposit down, which is another thing I don't really need at the moment but would hate to miss out once it disappears; kinda like the adjustable suspension. LOL.

    What parts of the Adjustable Suspension are you looking for and why?

    I was hoping to do the full upgrade, but the upgrade is not available on the Tesla website and my local SC said they cannot even locate any of the parts to perform the installation.
