Looks like Q3W amplified Gramps' insecurities once more so he caved and got the other wheels :olo:

I guess that is what one might think if they were a Q3W moron. But I can assure you Q3W had nothing to do with my wife's decision to pull those ugly ass hub caps and purchase some new center caps and lug nut covers.

I think it looks 10 times better.

You going to be okay bro.

I actually like those better than the upgrade. Ultimately, it was the wife's choice and she was indifferent. So...

Yeah, so first the stock ones look better than the upgraded ones and your wife didn't give a shit, then you visit Q3W and suddenly the upgraded ones look 10 times better and your wife turns out to be a moron. Sure Gramps :olo:

FYI - Those are the standard rims without the wheel covers. The wheel covers provide extra mileage.

My new cars in hold until we’re out of this shit storm which means I had to spend £2500 on servicing the BM. Kind of glad I’ve still got it as it’s been great fun in the snow being AWD.

Oof, some serious upset going on here.

You have to know the only reason a manufacturer would cover up a set of nice mag wheels that have been powder coated the same color as the car with hideous plastic hub caps is efficiency. They even covered up the Tesla engraved brake calipers FFS.

Tesla is constantly looking for ways to tout an increase in battery range. This was just a cheap tacky way to do it.

Don't let my wheels ruin your new year...

Purchasing the performance model gets you 20’’ Überturbine Wheels, Performance Brakes, Carbon fiber spoiler, Lowered suspension, Aluminum alloy pedals, Increased top speed from 145mph to 162mph, and Track Mode.

Do they still have the build quality of a 1990 Kia? Heard and seen nothing but horrible things from both Tesla owners and potential buyers.

They are pretty bad quality... U should see and hear the model S doors shut... It's supposed to be a luxury car, but it's built like a sub 50k car...

Yep, typical American build quality. My mates P100D S has let him down a few times. The MCU has failed twice. The last time the part had to be shipped from the US because demand was so high. He had to wait 5 weeks. Customer support here is awful.

This is Diane. 1990 AM STD STR LH upgraded with Creamery Sonic 60's, Brian May - style Trisonic-PUs and new crome-hardware.

Going to bring her to the tech-guy this month since I suck at soldering. She'll also get a new input-jack and new screws.

The old PUs are very corroded.

Re what is new in your little world, I am just about to fit 4TB HDD to my PC. I haven't opened the case in a while so it should prove interesting....

Edit hours later. BACKUP your stuff.
In moving email folders one was lost! It is proving annoying in trying to recover and that's if it is avail. Later I see to my horror, my last backup was end of 2018. .......

I won't tell you again, BACKUP :!:

... and BTW, I moved not copied at the time :smirk: :smirk:

These are my guitars. I re-did the 1992 Les Paul pickups as the ones they came with were in poor shape as well as soldered poorly.

WOW! I'm surprised you remember that and yes, it was Everlong. I LOVE playing my guitars and have progressed quite a bit. Even wrote and recorded my first song recently.
