One of the first things I tried (after taking it for a spin). Results didn't look good.

It doesn't need it.

I put the CarPC in the Lexus because there were no factory options to play mp3s, get Satellite Radio, etc.

The Tesla comes with a factory Alpine head unit. It's got Nav,...

The answer to both question is...it depends.

As for range, "ideal" range, when new, is a little over 200 miles on a charge. This reduces slightly over time, as the battery pack ages. Also,...

I think the power roof and the LuxLink are the things I'm most going to miss.

The Roadster is basically a targa top. It's a soft roof that comes off. You have to be outside the car, and...

According to Wikipedia, it's a "Single speed BorgWarner fixed gear (8.27:1 ratio)".

There's really no "putting it in gear". It's always in gear. Reverse is running the motor backwards. Park...

There's one reason...and one reason only...why I didn't just go out and buy a 2015 SC430.

Finally replacing the SC430

I've had my 2003 SC430 since Oct 2006, and loved the whole ownership experience.

However, it's now 11 years old...and over 120,000 miles on the odometer.

Time to look for something new. I...

From what I understand, you'll lose steering wheel stereo controls, and the navigation (whose electronics run through the stereo).

But, I'm speaking anecdotally. Others who have more experience...

I'm pretty sure the tires on my SC430 (Michelin Pilot A/S) are magnetic.
