    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Nothing to add here really. I completed the upgrade today at Tesla Charlotte. I have to echo those before me that accomplished this - very nice upgrade and I'm so pleased Tesla decided to make this possible. I felt like I had to post since I started this thread so many moons ago. Though I still...

    Firmware 2019.24.1 [AP1/MCU1 - just sketchpad improvements]

    I got 2019.24.1 late last night. No release notes - just a blank screen where they should be. Rebooted and got same when pulling it from the info screen. MCU1 car now reboots MCU every 20 minutes or so. I drove it three hours today and it was literally every 20 minutes or so. What is the...

    Purchase Extended Warranty or Not???

    Be careful with this. I had the same plan originally. When Tesla says 180 days they mean 180 days not 6 months. Your drop dead date for the discount is actually June 19, 2019 not the 21st. I waited until a couple of days before the discount expiration and was denied. I still haven't purchased it...

    Drive on Navigation

    It works on 2.0. Only thing you are missing thus far is the dash cam AFAIK.

    Will post-delivery FSD option go away?

    Yeah - this. I love my Tesla even without the self driving or I would not have bought it. That being said, I'd be lying if I said the level of automation promised even if it was a good ways off did not contribute significantly to the choice of vehicles I made and the amount I was willing to...

    How Long Will You Keep Your MS?

    I thought this was a really long term car and used that to justify the high cost when I purchased it in 2017. I love the car, but find myself already having missed out on several changes and upgrades in the short 15 months I've owned it. While I do not have to have EVERY small item or...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I had my defective screen replaced and picked up the car today. I mainly post this because from reading on here there is zero in the way of consistency where Tesla service is concerned. The closest SC to me is about 95 miles away and the job took 2 days so it required around 6 hours of driving...

    2018 Model S P100D

    I don't believe what you said contradicts anything in my original post it simply skews it from a vegan perception of the issue. We are nowhere near the tipping point of making meat more expensive by not using the leather from the cows. While this may someday happen, I do not believe I will still...

    2018 Model S P100D

    I don't get this whole move to vegan leather thing. I would venture to say that very few cows out of the millions killed over the last year were killed for the hide. The hides are a natural byproduct of the animal being slaughtered for food. I certainly understand a vegan not wanting to ride...

    Thanks. I'll leave that on my wish list..

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    So my 2017 S is showing the dreaded yellow frame on the center screen. I obviously need to get the screen replaced and in reading through the threads on here it appears Tesla is now just swapping screens when possible and not touching the MCU. Since these two are so closely married and I have...

    Model S lowers itself after park? How long it takes to get a lower bumper?

    Tesla needs to turn this off. As near as I can tell there is no situation in which the car needs to lower or raise itself when the driver has no way to be aware it has happened in their absence. At the very least there should be a message on the dash upon the driver's return advising them of a...

    Did you name your Model S, and if so, what?

    Model S 100D accelaration time

    While stopped, press the brake pedal firmly to the floor. An H will appear on the dash and you are in "brake hold" mode. The brakes will remain active after removing your foot from the pedal. The brakes will be released when you either press the accelerator pedal or press the brake pedal again.

    Model S 100D accelaration time

    Yeah - I wasn't trying to pick on you - just making a personal observation. I was one of the "some" not so long ago - I had a fit for the uncork when it came out 6 months ago or so for a .1 gain... Priorities change I guess...
