    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    Hello. Just wondering if anything was discovered about the noise. I have a 2017 S75D, with the clunking noise at the front, and I'm considering the Arnotts.

    380 WH/MI

    I have a 2017 S75D with around 30k miles on it. Current average is 384 WH/MI. I'm not driving as fast as you, but the winter is killing my efficiency. On long road trips I've done in the summer (like 1,000 mi), my average would be 280 driving mostly around 70mph. In town in the summer it's 320.

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    Another possibility, the gearing. For the front motor the ratio is now around 7.5 : 1. It used to be something like 9.5 : 1 before. You can check it in the 2021 S user's manual. Assuming the motor spin about the same speeds that would explain in part the slowness off the line. Side note. I...

    Dragy times for Plaid and LR

    Just to add a bit of perspective, in case people don't realize how fast that number is, Car and Driver tested a 2019 M5 Competition. They got 6.8 for the 0-100mph. And 3.0 for the 0.60mph. Link here, The BMW M5 Competition Is the M5 You Want. In other words, the base S matches the top of the...

    2 permanent magnet motors in the new LR refresh, source of the higher performance?

    Adding to my previous post, if we assume the old S was peaking at 70mph, and assuming the motors are the same (which is not necessarily true), then doing a rule of 3 with the new ratio would give around 86mph for the peak power. I guess once we get dyno runs, etc, we'll get a clearer picture...

    2 permanent magnet motors in the new LR refresh, source of the higher performance?

    I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, but to me this is big news. This is mentioned on page 212 of the owner's manual. The previous S had a permanent magnet motor at front, and induction at the rear. Also I noticed the drive ratios are now 7.558:1 and 9.034:1, compared to 9.325:1 and...

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    Just a followup on my previous post. I got the car serviced last week. In addition to the air spring modules I got the upper control arm replaced, So far so good, but it's only been a few days. Let's see if it returns in the next weeks/months.

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    I finally got my notification from the service center that parts had arrived. Scheduled for Nov 27th. I'll report back once it's done. Also I'll try to find out whether they consider the fix to be permanent or not. I'm curious to see what they have to say about it.

    Questions on HEPA filter upgrade.

    I was considering updating my 2017 Model S with the HEPA filter option and had a few (several!) questions: - for those of you who did the upgrade, do you consider worth it? - once you have the filter can you enable/disable it? or is it considered always on? - how long does the filter last...

    Rattle noise coming from front Air Suspension (2017-18)

    Hello. Anything new since then? In my case parts have been ordered, at least 2 months ago. Still waiting. This is suspicious. That's why I'm curious to hear what they told you.

    Mcu Stuck In Reboot Loop. Is It Risky To Travel?

    Just a followup on this issue. I finally got the update notification on the mobile app, and could start the install from there. After a while everything was updated and the screen was back. So it really was a case of incorrectly installed software (on the previous update).

    Mcu Stuck In Reboot Loop. Is It Risky To Travel?

    I tried, but it doesn't work. Remains at "off".

    Mcu Stuck In Reboot Loop. Is It Risky To Travel?

    No climate, no navigation, no data on trip consumption. For the climate it should not be too bad as temps are cool where I'm going (around 70-72F). The only data working, on the intrument cluster screen, appears to be the SOC, temp, odometer and time. The consumption values displayed are...

    Mcu Stuck In Reboot Loop. Is It Risky To Travel?

    At this point I have no idea. I guess once the 48 hours delay is passed tomorrow after 5pm, if no software fix occured I'll have to assume it's hardware. But by then I'll be on the road. As long as I can charge (I know level 2 works fine at home right now) then I'm OK.

    Mcu Stuck In Reboot Loop. Is It Risky To Travel?

    Just out of curiosity was your car usable while the update was being done? In my case they just mentioned vaguely "in the next 24 to 48 hours". It's been 29 so far and no updates yet. I'll be on the road for 2 hours tomorrow morning.
