Automotive services, products and member experiences

Tires and wheel services

Many of our members have had good experiences when buying tires from Discount Tire at 1770  Dublin Blvd. in Colorado Springs. They have been especially careful of Tesla jack points and have competitive prices. Please see their location here.

Canopy Airport Parking, Denver Airport

A comment from one of our members, Steve Z.:

I can't make it next Saturday. But for those who don't know about Canopy, they do a really nice job of taking care of Teslas if you use their valet indoor parking service. When I first brought them my Sig S in October of 2012 they hadn't a clue what it was, but I brought them up to speed and now I see multiple Teslas every time I park there on a trip.


Automotive Wraps & Finishes

One of our members, James Harrell, send me this information about having your car wrapped, tinted or coated. If you have a service you've used (such as Opticoat or windshield tint), let the group know and we'll publish the information here.

My friends name is Kevin Yu.  His business is Auto Film Solutions (AFS).  The following is POC information;
Phone number: 719 331-3115
Address:  3525 Akers Drive, Suite and bay 130, Colorado Springs, CO.

Kevin does have a new website.  But, it is currently not yet fully operational.  The site is  Kevin said that it should be fully operational in two weeks.

FYI, Kevin’s new location has just gone operational this week.  Previously his business was at the large Toyota dealership and maintenance facility (near the Woodman and Powers intersection).  His new facility is much better for his line of business.

As I had said before, Kevin did a partial wrap (the front bra, headlights, rear view mirrors, rear quarter panels, and lower rear trunk area) on our car, directly after we brought it.  We are very pleased about the product and quality of service.

You will find that Kevin does a number of film finishes.

  • Front Bra clear film protection.
  • Partial clear film wrap (front bra, headlights, rear view mirrors, rear quarter panels, and lower rear trunk area).
  • Full car clear film wrap.
  • Car clear film wrap with decal/logo/text.
  • Color changing Full/Partial film wrap.
  • Exterior windshield protection wrap.
  • Interior windshield tint.       

Whenever you or any of the club members would be interested, I can arrange for Kevin to have some of his work available for viewing.

  3. I will contact Kevin about a "wrap," in white of the roof only of my 2000 Honda Insight, as a method of keeping the car's cabin cooler... Any comments or observations on this idea from the members?

  4. Tesla Wall Connector Installation

    I just had a Tesla Wall Connector installed in my garage. Heretofore I used the cable from the car, which was plugged into a 220V wall socket. The installation of the new Connector is much more tidy and allows me to return the other cable to the trunk. Installation was done by a local (Colorado Springs) electrical contractor ("The Electric Way"). I recommend him (Owner: David Hopayer) to anyone considering installation of such. David has an electric motorcycle!
