    Battery cycle ranges and degredation over the cars lifetime (90-20%?)(95-5%)

    Eeek, given your destination, getting a charger installed is not an easy ask. Also, parking outside will consume range

    Battery cycle ranges and degredation over the cars lifetime (90-20%?)(95-5%)

    I grew up in ND and don't like those odds. Any given day it would be fine. But keep in mind the winds that are prevelent. Model S is a sleek vehicle but -40 temps and 30kt headwind will cut heavily into range. Plus, that is not the day you want to be stuck on the side of the road with a dead...

    The MCU2 upgrade is now $1500

    Prices change, that's just life. I happily paid $2,500 for my upgrade and have been enjoying it for months. On the flip side, I only paid $4,260 for FSD and now the price is $10k. If I'm that they won't refund $1,000 from 6 months ago, Tesla could be ticked that I have not paid them the extra...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I believe mine is a July 2017. It was built right when they announced "uncorked" so I got in on that but just missed the air suspension becoming standard. 75 RWD,

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    All done and it is fantastic! All done and it is fantastic! Tyson's Corner SC in Virginia finished my upgrade yesterday. Charged my card on file when I picked it up and I was on my way. The trim and everything install related is perfect. My firmware was downgraded to 2020.12.x but upgraded...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I'm nervous about the trim too. About a year ago they replaced my screen due to the yellow band. The trim wasn't put back on right, the screen was tilted, and they cut the leather on my steering wheel. I rejected the repair so they kept it a few more days to do it right including replacing the...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    My ‘17 S went in to Tyson’s in VA yesterday morning for the MCU1/AP2.0 swap out. I called at 4pm and the hardware was all in and working but the download had not finished. If it got done by 5pm they would roll it out and I could pick it up. Unfortunately my app notified me it finished about 7pm...

    "Voltage supply too low" error

    I had this on a rental X in January. It subsequently stranded me and they had to come tow the vehicle. The 12v battery needed replacing.

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Tesla change the "Infotainment Update" web site to say AP 2.0 vehicles are "Scheduling Now" about the same time as Elon announced the Fremont factory was going to reopen Friday. But then Alemada county shut down their attempt to re-open. I wonder if that will have an effect on the upgrades that...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    true enough on the hardware. My point was more that it’s what’s in the current shipping vehicle. I’m glad you had a good experience with others in the past. My Experience with Ford upgrades was pretty poor.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    they have been updating the web site as the date slips. But the directions remain the same. Wait for an email that your vehicle is eligible. The fact that this is happening at all reassured me that I bought the right brand. Try asking any other auto manufacturer to put a 2020 touchscreen and...

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    The information you are asking for is on Tesla’s web site. It has been updated at least twice as the date is pushed out. I have the same hardware as you so late May, unless they push again. You will get an email when you are eligible. Tesla has furloughed thousands of employees, and have been...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Sorry for my soapbox moment but I can no longer help it. I am one of the MCU1, AP2.0 folks. I fully intend to buy the Infotainment upgrade when my email arrives. Yes, I am discouraged that we slipped from March to April to May (so far). Yes I am frustrated that Tesla's banked my FSD money for 2+...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I have only read about appointments getting canceled for folks that scheduled an upgrade appointment without getting any notice from Tesla that their VIN is eligible. I'm just as excited as the next guy, but repeatedly making appointments before it's their turn only seems to waste the time of...

    Have there been studies on possible health effects of ev's?

    Just wear your tin foil underwear and you should be fine.
