    Battery cracked [Tesla claims from pothole damage]

    The OP doesn't mention if she is the original owner of the car. If not, it may have been damaged and repaired poorly before she bought it.

    Different (larger) rear drive unit.

    19" Slipstream Wheel (gray) disappeared

    Get the Tempest 19" and pull off the wheel covers. The wheels underneath the covers look reasonably decent.

    Late 2016 / Early 2017 S Owners: How Are Your Daytime Running Lights Holding Up?

    Garaged at home all the time since I am retired. It comes out for errands and road trips. My garage gets over 100° in the summer here in AZ.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Failed MCU1 under warranty gets a remanufactured MCU1. No one gets MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade for free, warranty or not. It's $2500+ tax.

    18 Model S 100D Totaled

    @craigger - You are forgetting that he likely paid $1000+ per month in loan payments in addition to his 50K down? He's in for much more than $22K

    Blank Touchscreen, no Nav, Phone etc. ??????

    If you pay $2500 for the MCU2 you will lose your AM-FM radio and Sirius XM (if you have it). Pay the $200 and call it a day.

    @Akikiki, it's closer to $2750 with today's exchange rate

    Question about the new Tempest Wheels

    They look pretty good once you remove the hideous wheel cover (hubcap?)

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    My Android phone has FM, but it requires headphones to be plugged in to work. The headphone wires act as the radio antenna.
