      I am very close to pulling the trigger on a Tesla. I will keep it for three years, after which Tesla buys it back at a fixed price, or I can sell it if they go for more at that time. On top of this...

      18" feels right. I had 17" winter wheels on my 2008 TDI, but those do not fit the 2006 W12 due to brake size, so I have 18" rims for both summer and winter. 19" is a bit of a rough ride for my taste....

      Rule of thumb:

      A standard lead-acid battery can take about 25% of the rating in charge current. A 95Ah battery will hence be able to draw 24A of charge current from a source.

      An AGM battery has...

      I think the brake switch is a dual thing (correct me if I am wrong) with one going to the brake lights and one to the logic, so brake lights may have been functional for the thread starter.

      Up here in the "cold north" with sanded winter roads, cracked windshields is commonplace, and sometimes the radiators take a hit from a stone as well. Picking the car up tomorrow :)

      This is a known issue that is cured with a software update of the ADC. The radar is made by TRW and is rather costly. I had this problem on my 2008 and got it fixed with the update.

      Radiator leak

      I have serious drain now on the left side of the vehicle, and it appears to come from the radiator itself. Coolant consumption is approaching fuel consumption :(
