    WTB - Model S White Interior

    White and black - not white or black. I should have clarified that. At a pinch I would take the seats only without the door cards.

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    I just picked up my car from service. $1500 plus tax. It’s a night and day difference - really like a different car. Voice control finally works after all this time. Needs a few more miles of calibration apparently, but so far so good. Just plugged in my USB SD card reader - Dashcam came up...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    So - took my AP2/MCU1 2017 Model S into the service center today. Still no estimate showing in the app against the appointment. Service guy : "Did they quote you a price for this ?" Me : "The mobile service guy who came out to me last week said it would be $1500. The webpage said it would be...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    My appointment for Infotainment upgrade is tomorrow. I ordered early last week when the price was supposedly $1500 for my AP2/MCU1 Model S. There's no estimate yet showing against my appointment in the app, although the appointment was confirmed on Friday. Will be interesting to see what they...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    Sounds very similar to my experience. Voice commands are either very slow or don't work at all. The whole car feels like I'm trying to run a large spreadsheet on the latest version of Excel on a 15 year old PC. Which is essentially what we are doing, I suppose. Hoping that the upgrade gets...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    I caved (after months of issues with sluggish performance) and ordered the infotainment upgrade a couple of days ago. I'm in SoCal. Appointment is set for Monday, but I got an email yesterday to say that : MCU INTEL HW3 UPGRADE-For TegraAP2.0 - NORTH AMERICA Part #: 9874562-00-A ...is on...

    Painting Model S Rear Bumper

    There's a small crease and some paint scrapes on my Model S (2017) rear bumper. Looks like a car park hit and run. My normal paint guy says he needs to paint the whole bumper off the car, which makes sense. Question is - should I be concerned about sensors etc, and their removal, alignment or...

    Interior door trim

    Hi - picked up a used Model S recently, which I’m enjoying a lot. The car is in very good condition generally, but I am going through it and tidying up any small signs of wear and tear. The metal trim strip on the inside of the drivers door is a bit dinged, and I was wondering if this piece is...
