    2015 S 85D 305k km, Fix or sell for salvage?

    Found a great team of professionals, through a post mrElbe had made, at Evolution Racing on Brisbane in Toronto(GTA) that were able to quickly help me find someone to sell the S85D to for salvage. Highly recommend giving Tito or Bruno a call if you're looking for pricing on repairs of any make...

    2015 S 85D 305k km, Fix or sell for salvage?

    A month shy of eight years and our much loved S 85D has finally had a failure that is simply too much to consider repairing.....or should we take the $19k gamble? Quickly, after it being suggested, during an unrelated service visit in January, that the rear suspension be replaced due to age and...

    A/C Compressor finally failed. But $3400??!

    i wouldn't be surprised that an increase in failure of AC units for models affected by the May 2019 update imposing charge rate and battery capacity (batterygate chargegate) are related. Our 2015 AC has recently failed and we're nervously waiting for our SC appointment in anticipation of yet...

    MCU1 S Owners: Logic FOR/AGAINST Tesla's $2,500 "Infotainment Upgrade"? (Not required for FSD)

    Not interested in upgrading to watch Netflix when the battery range and charge rates should be restored for our generation of car to what we'd purchased. Seem's costly to spend $2500 USD so we can be entertained longer while having to wait longer to reach 80%. Restore the vehicle to how it was...

    Tesla Offers $2,500 Infotainment Upgrade

    Losing charge while car is plugged in

    Yes it is normal to drop a small amount of range overnight and ambient temp can play a part. Think it can also depend on the generation of the car though. Since the battery and charge limits forced on our 2015 S85D last year our vehicle now runs it's cooling fans regardless of the ambient...

    Adding a 60 amp circuit for a HPWC. 200 amp service.

    We put the HPWC on a 100 amp circuit so it maxs at 80 amps, back in March of this year. So much better than the 32 amps off the 40 amp 14-50 we used before. The electrician will give you the proper answer based on your service. however you basically would have 160 amps of useable from the 200...

    I have to make this confession...

    My signature sort of has it covered when it comes to our mileage. We're in love with the car still after three years and all the km's or miles. There is a daily competition in our home of who's driving the most that day. Took it to Key West - Mile Zero last year, can't wait for cross-Canada...

    How Much Would You Pay for MCU2 Retrofit?
