    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Failed MCU1 under warranty gets a remanufactured MCU1. No one gets MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade for free, warranty or not. It's $2500+ tax.

    18 Model S 100D Totaled

    @craigger - You are forgetting that he likely paid $1000+ per month in loan payments in addition to his 50K down? He's in for much more than $22K

    Blank Touchscreen, no Nav, Phone etc. ??????

    If you pay $2500 for the MCU2 you will lose your AM-FM radio and Sirius XM (if you have it). Pay the $200 and call it a day.

    Instrument cluster failing to start on 2015 Model S

    My IC has been dark when entering the car for about a month now. It wakes up without a reboot and then behaves normally.

    So I had my yellow screen fixed this past weekend...
