    I think not all do. It was optional.

    ...my (new to me 2.0) roadster is at tesla getting some service/upgrades. i asked to install a solar guard windshield. they emailed after i left to make certain i was okay with the negative impact the solar guard windshield apparently has on radio reception...

    Why does this thread consist of 50% posts that keep saying the spot below the mirror does work, and the other 50% keep blissfully ignoring that?
    Agreed, I have no problem with this. I have never mounted my EzPass due to infrequent use and multiple vehicles and I have no problem placing the unit as needed. Doubt I would even need to look anymore to place it properly.

    Yes it was an option, at least on the 08 but I believe it is a different coating. I did have this option and never had any real problem with the EzPass in any location whereas in the S it will definitely not read even when slowing to a crawl if it is not in the correct spot.

    With Roadsters they may have changed the type of coating over the years.
    For a while it was called "SolarPlus" and other times "SolarGuard".

    Heh, you OK over there?

    I've got quite the list of things going that I'm sharing with the ownership and service teams. All minor -- to me at least. And that includes some of the items you mention. However, the car itself is just SO AWESOME that it trumps these things. I practically don't care about them. I LOVE the car and how it drives. That's the most important thing to me. Everything else is just nit-picking to me. (to be clear, I feel like *I* would be nit-picking ... I'm not saying your or anyone else here is nit-picking)

    I think people are missing this part - thanks for repeating. I don't think there is a single car on the market that could withstand this level of scrutiny and not have a list of issues. But there is no other car on the market that will provide the thrill. Driving electric makes you feel like a kid again.

    Sounds like the best car ever.
    Buying an EV is one thing, being able to drive it beyond city limits another...

    Agreed Bonnie...folks need to experience the thrill of driving electric for a few weeks before going off on tangents...I think that most would feel exactly as cinergi posted..."...a thrill to drive" and "...problems are minor."

    Sorry, couldn't resist. I empathize with everyone here who's feeling let down, irritated, etc. Because I was really beginning to lose it. And I haven't even shared everything that I went through. I'm much happier now that I have the car. I have battle-wounds ... and I'm in constant contact with a few Tesla folks who directly control and influence training, the delivery process, post-delivery ownership experiences, etc. And they're taking my feedback to heart. And it's because I'm having a very open, painful, but constructive conversation with them. Now, some of this is probably because I owned a Roadster and have previous contacts inside Tesla. Some of what I've had has been the result of (what I think was) a well-worded long email to George with the sole purpose of informing him of what I went through so 1) he would be aware and 2) would have the details he needed to improve the process. I didn't ask for anything, I didn't flame anyone, etc. It was all a "I know you're trying and care deeply, but this XYZ blah blah stuff I went through sucks, and I wanted you to know. Let me know if I can be of further assistance."
    Anyway, veering off topic here ...
