    Looks just like the car I would get. :wink:

    Eager to see what it looks like with the TSportline wheels. Going to be another 5 months or so until I get my fitted. You probably don't have Winter wheels down there...

    Where did you get the wheels? I ordered the 21" wheels for $4500, I thought they are very expensive but they look great.

    And why is almost everyone wearing a black shirt? And in Florida none the less? Is black the new black?

    Thanks lump, I feel there is a big difference from the 19" t sportline to the 21" oem. $3000 different, should I change my order?

    @Dark what did you order, list your configuration...are you a standard 85 or P+, more we know the better we can advise.

    Pros & cons natuarally between OEM & aftermarket, but so far everyone appears to be very happy with TST's, some Tesla service centers have said they won't touch them while mine in Van Nuys said "no problem" worst case you go to a local tire shop for rotations etc...

    Contact them to see if they changed pricing, I was one of the first to place an order from Elie @ Al $ Ed's so I got the intro price.


    Head over to the proper thread to ask questions so we don't mess this one up

    Lump, I got 85, grey metallic, 21" grey turbine wheels, leather seats, tech, parking sensors, fog lamps, premium interior lights, alcantara headliner, and I had to beg for the new alcantara upper dashboard trim.

    I confirmed my order on 5/26, I am not sure if they will let me change it, I looked at many after market wheels and I still think the oem 21" grey turbine wheel looks the best.

    Of course, cost, ride quality, short tire life are the negatives.

    And the propensity to get road rash.
