Where is the aftermarket suspension support? Model 2 is 4 years old now.

    Is the Tesla user base still too small to be profitable for aftermarket suspension designers? Would be nice to be able to buy a Tesla and later upgrade its handling to be as precise as the original P85+.

    i agree, i wish there are more stuff for the handling department. or a hack to control the air suspension without the GPS tag. that will be wonderful!

    Call Billstein, in Poway 1-858-386-5900. Ask for aftermarket shocks, etc. The more it rings, the sooner it happens.

    Non air suspension struts are Bilstein shocks. They're blue and yellow which is same as Bilstein HD shocks.

    I want more sway bar upgrades, control arm options and possibly chassis stiffener.

    This vehicle does not need frame/subframe bracing in the slightest. Also FWIW I know a company makes Springs for non-D Model S Teslas. Tesla tuners perhaps?

    Edit: I think it's TSportline

    I think you're actually referring to the speed-sensitive disengagement of the height adjustment but in case you don't know, you can already remove the geofencing on suspension changes. When you make a change to the height, a tag shows up on the screen to the right of the height selection buttons saying that the location is being logged. Click on that (or maybe you have to click the X in that message bubble) and you will disable geofencing for that instance.

    i meant the change in height setting in relation to the vehicle's speed. I used "GPS" as a means to describe the speed the vehicle is recording, my apologies.

    I hate how I can't drive in very high setting permanently. Sometimes with 5 passengers and 4 luggages, even if the car is not in low setting, it would still touch the floor going across speed bumps or large-ish inclines.
