    Extremely loud fan noise from front of car

    I brought mine to service with the same complaint. They diagnosed remotely and replaced the center powered louver. I'm not sure if that's the solution because it hasn't been as hot recently. I still wonder if the software is more sensitive to higher temps, or some battery temp sensor is...

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    It was in the app for me. I think it was under upgrades... infotainment. If it's not, you could just pick other and type what you want.

    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    Heads up, now's the time to do this. It appears there is a price increase underway. I requested the upgrade via the app, and the automated estimate came back as USD $1750. I then looked at www.tesla.com/support/infotainment and it still shows the $1,500 price. I chatted back to service and they...

    I forgot to mention, there is no additional labor fee.

    4 years with Model S

    ************ FIVE years with Model S OP here. You've probably been anxiously waiting all year and hoping that I'd post an update. I'm up to 110K miles now, and there's really nothing significant to report over the last year. (yes, this is that rare "post about nothing"). The range is down to...

    You might like cars and coffee in Southlake. Next one is December 18 9am. Usually can see supercars/exotics.

    Literal truckloads of Teslas

    I too saw some on 75 heading south between Atlanta and Ocala. 4 truckloads before and after Thanksgiving. There's hope for a fun Christmas for you central and south Florida people. I thought I read that Tesla sends them by train to Tennessee (?) and truck the rest of the way. I even saw a...

    Bought FSD, but X is stuck on 2020 software build without it

    Hope you're sitting down... Additional languages, cold weather improvements, and automatic cam save if emergency. But at least we're not on security fixes only.

    Bought FSD, but X is stuck on 2020 software build without it

    2016 December S. AP3 MCU1 FSD. Had been on 2020.48.37.6 for many months. Got 2021.24.25.1 just now. Seems to be a feature release, not just security fixes. Nothing about FSD beta though.

    Better Way to Contact Service?

    I experienced this on my phone. I finally figured out how to make the keyboard "floating" so that I could move it out of the way.

    What's your S 75 range at 90%?

    Mine is very similar. 2016 December build S60, 99k miles, 60 unlocked to 75 last year. 181 at 80%. Occasional supercharging. Dallas, so not usually too cold.

    What’s S60D to S75D upgrade/uncork price today?

    Yes, scheduled through the app. I didn't know the part number at the time. I never saw the upgrade option in the app.

    4 years with Model S

    Someday I'll probably do the $2500 for MCU2. Forum comments seem to indicate that the vast majority of people are happy with the faster response time. Now that the radio is upgradeable too, I'm more inclined to do it. I don't think I'll miss AM much, although I haven't found KRLD on TuneIn...

    4 years with Model S

    I have wondered about the damping material. And PPF too. I've seen several threads on both. Laziness/cheapness are currently trouncing my damping/PPF ideas. I do wonder about a reasonable price in the DFW area though. To be worth it, the improvement would need to be quite noticeable.

    4 years with Model S

    My wife has a 2018 Model X with air suspension. It seems somewhat smoother, but not 70's Caddy boat smooth:) Certainly not quieter. It would be interesting to drive my car, then an 18 with air, and then a Raven in quick succession over the same road. I vaguely recall someone posting db...

    4 years with Model S

    Purchased Model S 60 (RWD) in December 2016 (ordered in October and waited anxiously for 3 months!). Now has 95K miles. Has lifetime supercharging and connectivity. Recently upgraded to a 75. While it was a 60, battery degradation on 90% charge went from 188 miles to maybe 178. Now as a 75...

    60 to 75 upgrade not avail anymore? why not?

    Athenadriver, Unlocking 60 to 75 is now possible at the service center. Part number: BATTERY UPGRADE, 60kWh to 75 kWh, MS(1091845-06-A) Cost now is $2250 plus $10 labor for the new 75 badge plus tax. They also think that the option to upgrade is available in the app under upgrades, but it...

    60 to 75 upgrade not avail anymore? why not?

    Now that it's available again, I had the unlock a few weeks ago for my December 2016 S. More than covers the degradation. 90% started at 188 and got down to 175. After unlock, 80% is 183.

    What’s S60D to S75D upgrade/uncork price today?

    Has anyone been able to unlock a 60 to become a 75 recently? If so, how? I lost the option to purchase on the website last summer. Various queries to Tesla result in "coming soon" answers, but clearly that's not been true. Latest answer was to upgrade in the app, but I don't have that option.

    Car won’t shift into gear

    What happens if you hold the key in the special place in the center console, and press the brake? The manual has a picture of the location.

    Key not in car

    To turn on the car once you're inside, can I suggest holding the fob in the position by the cigarette lighter? Note that nothing will change on the display, but you can press the brake and the car will turn on. There's a picture in the manual of where precisely to place the fob. In my manual...

    Tesla said my Model X didn't come with front heated seats

    Perhaps ask customer service to email the original Monroney sticker to you? I don't know how long they keep them, but worth a shot. I got mine emailed a month after buying the (new) car.

    Hello from Germany

    Welcome! I too have been trying to upgrade my 2016 S60 to a 75, but Tesla won't do it. They removed the option from their website last summer. PS, I play clarinet in a local German band here in Texas.

    Just Fart Mode - no other updates

    Teslafi.com is a handy resource to gain visibility to version rollouts. For AP 2.0 and earlier, 2018.50 is the common version. HTH.

    Supercharger - Arlington, TX

    Only one of the convention center halls has been converted for esports. It closes at 2AM every day, and that's great for easy nighttime restroom access. It opens at noon, but the rest of the convention center may open earlier. Home – Esports Stadium Arlington

    RWD 1st Snow Driving Experience with All Season Tires

    Thought I'd share my experience with my model s rwd as I think the issues would be the same. I was driving across an icy short bridge. In prior experience with automatic gas cars, my training is to not accelerate or brake or turn the steering wheel. In this case, lifting off the accelerator of...

    Obvious features/functions that weren't obvious to you

    Personally I wish the boink would sound when the warning pops up, not when the car sends the homelink command.

    Tesla called and needs to replace my battery ASAP

    Thanks for the update. Interesting to see what was monitored. However, I'm surprised that the car didn't also display a warning message. Can't assume that owner contact info is correct, and that they can reach the owner. I guess they run the data through some analysis that hasn't (yet) made...

    Rear floor mat velcro retainers

    After well over a year of lurking on this forum, I thought it's about time I try to give back. I have a Dec '16 Model S purchased new, and was bothered by the rear floor mat moving around and bunching up in the middle. For my first regular service agreement last summer, I asked why there was...
