Hi, everyone

Mon Mar 20, 2017 7:19 pm

Hi, bought a used 2013 S a few weeks ago. I had set aside about 9K to get a low mileage 2015S but I got such a good deal on the 2013 I couldn't pass it up. It had just over 28,000 mi. when I bought it. I have put about a 1000 on it so far. I like driving it so much I look for excuses to go out for lunch. I took the money I saved and invested it in a new set of 17" Custom Wheels and tires and ran a dedicated 50amp service. I then ordered a 50 amp. OpenEVSE kit and got that up and running. I have the QC and 6 KW charger I only have to charge for 2 hrs. every other workday.

I plan on posting car pics, hopefully today. Here is a pic of the wheels I got on Amazon. They are
Verde 17 x 7. I did not weigh them, but probably about 23 lb. I just thought that the stock S model hubcaps were ugly, and one of them had been curbed and was messed up a little.
