    Motor Fault Detected - Error after 5 days away not charging / driving

    I went away for about 5 days and didn't charge or drive the R1S. When I came home and tried to start the car, it gave me a Motor Fault Detected, unable to drive, and told me to call a tow truck. I did a hard reset to try to get rid of the message by holding the left button on the steering...

    Impressions on rental Mercedes EQS 450+ SUV 7-seater vs. the R1S

    I had to take a weekend trip to Houston with my family of 5 and rented a Mercedes EQS 450+ SUV 7-seater from Budget. I got what I felt was a pretty good deal at $60/day, $85 taxes included. Not bad for a car that retails for $104,400. Here's the link to the MB website...

    My EV Sportline CarPlay Display Hidden Wires Install

    I got my CarPlay unit from EV Sportline yesterday. There are other threads, but just wanted to provide my perspective.

    3D Maxpider Seatback Protector (3rd row) installed pics

    Additional Second Row Cupholders DIY Mod -- dual cupholder added to center console

    One of the shortcomings I think of the R1S is that there are not enough cupholders. Especially this is meant for families. So yes, I purchased the under dash tray from BestEVMod that has two cupholders so I have four up front now. However, for the second row, there are only two in the center...

    Hi all, Having taken delivery of the R1S about 2 weeks ago, I must say there are some really cool features I haven't seen in other cars, such as the proximity garage door opening. What a great idea. But I also have some functionality enhancement requests. I don't know what the formal process...

    Just got the R1S this past week. Is it just me or is the only option to see the odometer is in the about screen? There’s so much empty space in the gauge cluster screen, why not put it there like 99.9% of all the cars in the world?

    R1S Third Row

    Can anyone who actually owns one post pics or comments on the third row usability? I thought I saw a video where RJ mentions he fits in the 3rd row comfortably and he's 6'1. But I haven't seen anything about it. One of the main reasons I'm looking at the R1S is hoping the 3rd row is usable...
