1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    i have seen non-electric cars plugged in, presumably for longer term storage. And I've seen a fair share of Teslas on the road in my neighborhood.

    I called it:




    It is exceptionally difficult to warp a BMW rotor under street driving conditions. They are spec'ed considerably beyond anything that would be required for commuting or the occasional "spirited" drive. On the other hand, a bad wheel bearing is a perfect explanation for the vibration problems GF was describing.

    Ours has a charger. But actually may be moving to the Bay area (again) soon. Flying out for an interview this week...

    My sister lives in a tiny town in northern Ontario and every spot in all the parking lots have had outlets since at least 1980 (when I visited for the first time). Welcome to 1980 rural Canada motherfuckers!

    Yeah wheels are stock option (S wheels). Many people do indeed lower this car to make it look even better. I preferred to keep it stock for convenience. Such a fun car...sad to see it go, but I'm relocating to NYC.

    Don't own one yet but have a deposit down on a Model X and getting solar installed in the next week or two, so I'm making good progress toward being a Tesla owner this time next year. Tesla's are ubiquitous out here and have never heard anyone complain about their car, as opposed to most of the competition. If it fits your needs, odds are you will love it.

    Isn't that for engine/battery warmers so you can actually start your car in the frigid winters?!

    ... Anyone in mass know of a place that will "pass" illegal tints and a lack of a front-mounted license plate during inspections?

    I got a no front license plate fix it ticket and used zip ties to put on the plate (easy for me since my air dam is like an egg crate). The officer who signed my fix it ticket said something like "well, I guess if you want to be law abiding that's one way to do it." I didn't know whether to :slayer: or :nodding:

    Yup. Also, future proofing the parking lots in rural Ontario...30 years ago.
