    T Sportline's Project Rosso was our first stab at working with a Multicoat Red Model S.

    Changing out the Tesla turbine wheels was first on our modification list. We used our TS117+ forged wheel 21x9.0" front and 21x9.5" rear in our brush satin finish with the P85+ factory tire setup: Michelin PS2 245/35-21 front and 265/35-21 rear. Our forged wheels are functional and factory friendly in every way. Each wheel weighs about 20% lighter than the factory turbine wheel resulting in longer range. All T Sportline wheels use factory Tesla center caps, factory lug nuts, factory TPMS and factory original equipment size tires.

    To get a better stance, we installed our lowering hardware kit to allow for better handling. Our lowering hardware kit is fully adjustable from factory standard height up to 60mm lower.

    To enhance the multi-coat red exterior finish, we custom painted the front nose cone to match the body.

    We added extra detail to the interior by custom painting the front seatbacks to match the multi-coat red paint and installed our 5-piece hand crafted floor mat set for a more sport luxurious feel.

    Can you give more details on the lowering hardware kit? I'm not seeing any information on your website. Is it for air or coil suspension? What parts are replaced? Cost?
