My spider has been there for >2 years so it must have been an early prototype
Finally cleaned up!
Are those OG blacks or did you coat them? I've only seen Gray and Silver so far. I knew the solid blacks existed but they are pretty rare (as are the gray ones)
That’s Powdercoated by same guys Tesla uses...can’t tell any difference....and yes, those calipers body colored painted as well
I thought all original Tesla wheels are simply painted - not powdercoated.
Do you know which powdercoat supplier is used ? I.e. Prismantic Powders?
Do you know the name of the colour?
Would like to know this too. I'm getting mine powder coated Satin Black but if the Onyx is different I'll have them do that instead! I figured they were very similar
These spiders made it overseas to the Netherlands. Fantastic wheels!!!
New Arachnid wheels & Michelin PSS tires on our "unicorn" 2015 P85D with the Plus Suspension and Ludicrous upgrade = P85D+ (or P85DL+). Individual wheel pics taken after red Tesla logo decals applied.
Jesus, that is a unicorn. P85DL+?! That's up in the same league as the rare P85+ Autopilot cars.
Yup we have one of the rare P85DL+ Teslas. Bought it in the exact colors we wanted loaded with every option except 3rd row seats (which we didn't want) at our local Tesla showroom floor as an "inventory car". It even also has the rare Recaro rear seats.
Absolutely love it!
Another TMC user saw it and claimed it was a YETI since it is even more rare than a "unicorn".
P85DL+, with Recaro rear seats, wow. The only thing that would up your unicorn-ness would be gray or black Arachnids, as they no longer offer them for redemption as a referral prize. Just silver is offered these days. I've seen a few gray sets (I have 'em in gray) but I've only seen 1 black set personally.
/edit, although, now that I think about it, the only time Recaro rears were even potentially offered was during that brief "+" era. The two went hand in hand even though not everyone got them.
/edit 2. Another potential unicorn addition would be executive rear seats in a P85DL+...
Outch So new they still have the sticker residue on the rims and you already clipped a curb
Mine lasted about a week before I curbed them. That stung.
I bet, Question do your mirrors adjust so you can see the wheel and curb when you go into reverse?
Yes, but honestly it took me a week or so of ownership to realize it's a setting in the menu to turn that on. At first I didn't think my car did that. All part of the Tesla learning curve.
/edit. Turn on the setting in the menu, then adjust the mirrors to where you want them tilted down while in reverse. Save as part of your driver profile. You have to actually be in reverse while making the adjustment.
Yup my otherwise awesome wife accidentally rubbed against a curb pulling into a parking spot away from other cars. She doesn't drive our Tesla much... and I did the same thing to one of our Turbines the first week we got our slightly imperfect "inventory" P85D+ so the saying "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" definitely applies. Part of the price we pay having low profile tires & wide wheels. We drive our P85D+ a lot. It's definitely not a low mileage "show & shine" garage queen that owner's are unknowingly saving for the next owner. We love those guys. They save us THOU$AND$ when we buy their pristine cars from them when they have to have the next shinier / quicker new model.
Matte black + Pearl white
Washed my car, finally dare to post a pic .
Not many silver model S cars around it seems. I first wanted to powder coat the arachnids, but I really like the silver on silver look now that they’re on.
blue with black wheels
looks sweet until we meet all of the potholes...
Better late than never......
