    2012 Model S Signature Cars

    588 got the MCU 2 upgrade back in 10/2020, not long after my car was showing signs of eMMC failure. I added the FM upgrade a couple months later. The screen orientation is poor if you ever watch videos while Supercharging. Other than that, it was a much needed upgrade. Everything is just so much...

    Hansshow Power Frunk Trouble

    I’ve actually had good experience with Hansshow support. They just sent me a new Model 3 frunk soft close latch motor on a V3 kit I bought 1-1/2 years ago for free (including shipping). I installed this past weekend and it works perfectly Before this experience, I had an old Model S without a...

    Hansshow Power Frunk Trouble

    I actually had okay support from Hansshow recently, but you have to use WhatsApp. That seems to be their preferred method. I was having some issues (discussed in another thread) with v3 of the power lift gate interfering with the rear camera. They did some troubleshooting with me, but it was...

    rear view camera not working

    I ended up disconnecting the Hansshow v3 Tailgate and went back to stock. I was able to do it myself, but it took a while. Pulling off and re-installing all those interior panels is best left to the professionals and there is, indeed, not a lot of room to release the lower portion of the...

    rear view camera not working

    I’m on 2021.4.21.2 My installer is nearby. I can easily ask him to take me back to stock, but I’ll try reaching out the Hansshow first RE: a CANBUS upgrade. I can pull off panels and wire that. Would it be possible to unplug the Hansshow tailgate handle Y-adapter and reconnect the OEM wiring...

    rear view camera not working

    I started having these same problems last week and my 12V battery ended up dying Saturday night. I received no warning alerts prior to the battery dying. I have Hansshow V3 frunk and trunk openers and a 2020 Model 3 that’s only about 18 months old. Tesla was just here to replace the battery...

    Value of 2012 Model S Signature P85 w/out working battery

    I have a 2012 Signature Model S and thankfully the battery is still just fine. But yes, I was wondering if the OP reached out to Gruber as well. I'm in Phoenix so it's a lot easier for me, but I used to take my old Roadster there a lot. They really know their stuff. I wonder what they would...

    2012 Model S Signature Cars

    I think it means the suspension is not changing heights? I'll have to trouble shoot it a bit more. If that's the case, I'm really hoping it's not a major fix. Guess these cars are 8-9 years old by now and stuff like this is bound to happen.

    2.X battery capacity

    If the 3.0 battery is still going to cost about $30K, can you hold off on your contracted battery replacement to the 10-year mark, hope to get a 3.0 and maybe just get a cheap lease on a Bolt in the meantime? Would just like you to maximize the potential value of your prepaid replacement if...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Got my MCU 2 upgrade back on my classic pre-AP Signature Model S today. Took only a day to do. I asked for the radio upgrade, but was told it was currently unavailable. One small hiccup at contactless pickup. I didn’t bring my second key fob thinking I could open the car with the app. Well...

    Long Way Up movie - electric motorcycle trip

    I'm enjoying the show quite a bit. I don't know much about that part of the world so it's really cool to see the beautiful scenery and the snippets into the local cultures. I was checking out the Harley Livewire website and it looks like it's either Level 1 or Level 3 charging. Level 2...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    "Center Display Unavailable" message

    I got this message last night (9/26/2020) on my 2012 Signature Model S. I can't get an appointment at the local SC for 3-1/2 weeks (10/23/2020). I just emailed the SC and told them I don't want to get stranded driving the car and asked if they could squeeze me in earlier.

    2012 Model S Signature Cars

    My wife and I just spent a weekend in Flagstaff, AZ in Sig 588. We drove up from Phoenix and made it to the Supercharger with 19 rated miles left. Considering the elevation change from roughly 1000 ft above sea level in PHX to 7000 feet in Flag over 140 miles up the mountains, I didn’t think it...

    Vredestein Quatrac Pro 245/35R21 - first all season tire for 21 in rims

    I drove pretty conservatively on my initial drive home from the tire shop - about 10 miles with a combination of highway and surface streets. My installer told me to take it easy because one wheel was stripped, repaired, and freshly powder coated to fix some curb gash. Initial impressions are...

    Space Gray Model X after Chrome Delete
