    Update on AP Camera Update for Older S/X Vehicles

    Has anyone been able to validate whether there is any sot of setting or camera check that "allow lists" the car for beta access? I've already DIY'ed the triple cam and fender cameras with the latest rev. Didn't do the B-pillar cameras since I originally did the upgrade for better dashcam and...

    Update on AP Camera Update for Older S/X Vehicles

    I apologize if this has already been answered in the many pages of this thread, but do you have to own/subscribe to FSB before Tesla will do the camera upgrade? I had my 2017 S upgraded to MCU2 + FSD computer a few months ago, but don't actually own the FSD feature. I'd like to sign up for the...

    Gen 3 Charger Power Sharing - who has this working?

    This is exactly how my Gen2 power sharing has worked for years. It sucks, and sometimes the actively charging car will get "stuck" at a lower speed than it should. For example, last night mine only ramped up to 24A when it should normally ramp to 34A on my 40A shared circuit. This is when the...

    Model Y Longest Cargo?

    I don't usually intend to buy 10' stuff, but a number I've times I've found they only sell what I need in 10' sections instead of 8'. It's nice to be able to haul it home rather than bring tools and hack it up in the parking lot. Still have my S. :P

    Swap my Staggered Grey Turbine 21s for your Staggered Grey Twin Turbine 21s?

    I'm not 100% set on changing my wheels yet, but the look of the Twin Turbines is growing on me. I know some people prefer the look of the older Turbine wheels, so I thought I'd put a feeler out to see if anyone with a newer S might be interested in swapping their Twin Turbines for my Turbines...

    Upgrading AP cameras

    Well I got the car back and now AP is working properly again. They did install a new -1.2 degree camera mounting plate, just like that TSB document suggested may be necessary. Now I have a new problem though.... With the camera pointed more downward, it now "sees" the fuzzy glareshield piece and...

    Upgrading AP cameras

    I lucked out and was able to get an SC appointment on the morning of 4/1, so we'll see if they're able to sort it out. My googling did also find this, which I was previously unaware of: https://www.tsbsearch.com/Tesla/SB-17-17-002/190 I wonder if my car is in the affected batch, and the new...

    Upgrading AP cameras

    So I got my Model 3 triple camera from eBay and installed it tonight. I took a slightly different approach; I removed the four screws on the back of the camera unit and just swapped the old backplate onto the new camera. Thus avoiding having to cut any tabs off. It appears to work since it...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I think the safest best is for us to stop trying to make any sense out of Tesla's wild ass pricing and feature changes lol.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Ahhhhh now it makes sense. They were telling me that the upgrade price had increased, but they would honor the $1,500 price based on the date that I created the service appointment. I thought it was crazy talk, since the page still showed $1,500 at the time, but it looks like the price did in...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Yup, this ^^^^ I believe I paid $130 and lucked out that they sold them to me as part of the invoice for the MCU upgrade when the car was in the shop. When I followed up afterward to try and buy the triple cam, they said no, since they are restricted parts and can't be sold without Tesla doing...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I just realized I updated some other threads but not this one. I got my S75D back from the Rocklin service center in less than 24 hours and everything was perfect, except they forgot to plug in my hazard light button. They sent out mobile service for that quick fix though. So I went from MCU1...

    Upgrading AP cameras

    Awesome, thanks! I see the Model 3 cam also has an additional mounting "socket" on top for an adjustment that the S/X doesn't have. Did you have to trim that off as well, or does it just tuck out of the way when installed?

    Upgrading AP cameras

    Are the tabs that needed cutting visible in this photo and you can just highlight or explain what you had to do? I don't believe the S/X version has the "arms" on each side.
