    MCU Upgrade - Canada

    I'd opt for MCU2. Refurbed MCU1 would still have the same write/rewrite limitation and will fail in 3-4 years. That extra $1k+ is worth the cost considering the hassle and time lost ... 6 week wait is a pain. Probably better resale value if you wish to part with it in future.

    MCU Upgrade - Canada

    One more difference: Wifi & LTE reception is way better, no more dropped signals. FYI MCU1 uses Parrot wifi module, whereas MCU2 uses LG wifi module. Yes, he did it all in the garage wearing gloves and mask throughout the entire process. Would have been really awkward to hover around him given...

    MCU Upgrade - Canada

    Drove to work this morning, calibration took about 8km of driving (instead of 20km which was advised by Ranger) along stretch of highway before completion and autopilot enabled. Full visualization of traffic lights, cones and directional signs. I'm on firmware 2020.20.1 MCU has snappier...

    MCU Upgrade - Canada

    Got mine upgraded yesterday. Took Ranger 5 hours in total. I opted to have the screen replaced for an additional $300-ish as the original was yellowing again despite Tesla's UV fix. Total $3510 excluding tax. Feels like a brand new car again .... although I have noticed the driver side DRL led...

    Model S MCU1 Upgrade to MCU 2 - Availability in Canada

    I was kinda surprised when I got a reply that it can be done as a ranger service, but I will confirm on the day Ranger physically rolls onto my driveway with all the necessary replacement hardware and formally announce he plans to upgrade my MCU1->2 and AP 2.5->3

    Model S MCU1 Upgrade to MCU 2 - Availability in Canada

    That's good to know the touchscreen gets replaced. I had the yellow border issue fixed by Tesla via UV, but it's back ...sigh.

    Model S MCU1 Upgrade to MCU 2 - Availability in Canada

    New 20'' Two-Tone Slipstream Wheel Option

    The first few were tricky but gets easier once you get the hang of it, knowing the spacing and intervals. Kit comes with lots of extra decals which helps if you mess up. Once snowboarding season is done, I'll be swapping winter boots back to these ! Thanks Kenrico !

    License Plate Holder Removal

    These are the proprietary screws Tesla uses. Most of the time are not screwed down tightly and you can remove them using a 90 degree needle nose pliers. My friend has a 3D printer and I had him made this removal tool from Thingiverse.

    Yellow edge screen

    MIT_S60 was probably referring to the aluminum bezel around the screen. Mine got the UV treatment 2 weekends ago and they left a tiny dent at the bottom bezel.

    New wheels for my S

    This should help make your mind up: Lots of 19, 20, 21 & a few 22" Show off your aftermarket wheels.

    Curb damage to S?

    The damage would be the same with any ICE, which depends on the rim dimension and the speed you are planning to hump over curbs

    DIY Tesla Model X Mud Flaps

    Skipped the rears as some members recommended. Couldn't care less if the cars behind me gets stone chips. That'd teach them to keep a sensible distance behind. Those snow tires are Dunlop - SP Winter Sport 4D - 265/45R20 104V 3rd winter. Great grip but noisy.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Which FW do you have ? I'm on 2020.4 which is more responsive than the 40.50 which was brutally laggy and buggy.

    Soft Close Frunk

    It's a well-worth upgrade IMO. no more palm prints and risk of crease marks. You may want to set it at the highest speed for opening and closing. I stood in the grocery store parking lot looking like a dork waiting agonizingly for the frunk to open & close with people waiting to pull into my spot.

    Well, mine's downloaded but installation failed with persistent nagging to contact Tesla ('Software Update Required) despite reboot. Now I have to schedule mobile service to sort it out ...sigh

    Empty Front Trunk Space: What is it for?

    Not in mine (Nov 2019) but I do recall seeing the red emergency kit in others. Probably came as a standard in previous years.

    Hansshow’s power frunk/trunk kit Xmas promo

    I've emailed Hansshow for installation estimate, was given range between USD200-400. I bit the bullet, ended up buying frunk kits for S & X and installed both myself S was way harder than the X as the space around the latch area had ~ 3cm clearance and you had to bolt the screws back on...

    DIY UV Treatment for Yellowed MCU Screen

    @Blue X90 , great write up. I am going to try your solution. After I'm done, will reassemble the unit and give it to my wife as she spends a lot of time doing her nails (win-win scenario)

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    @Poobearcretu , I had those Whispbar/Yakima racks on the last car. The rubber feet left permanent imprints on the roof from constant rubbing. You may want to take it off, Xpel the area if you have just got them put on.

    Supercharger - Richmond, BC

    Speaking of these 2 Supercharger locations, I intentionally park in the vicinity even though I don't plan to charge and don't mind longer walks to mall entrance just for the sake of 'herd immunity' knowing mine will be surrounded by cautious owners.

    Power Frunk | No more fingerprints on the hood!

    It’s different in my case as I use the frunk far more than the trunk. I love Indian food and order lots of take outs and groceries go there too. Keeps the cabin scent free. I had called around and they were charging between $200-400.

    Power Frunk | No more fingerprints on the hood!

    The controller box looks identical , probably all rolled out from the same manufacturer. I actually followed the installation video from that website.

    Power Frunk | No more fingerprints on the hood!

    Got my installed today. The toughest part was actually putting the latch mechanism back due to lack of working space. Dropped the metal washer which took 30 minutes to grope around in the dark looking for it. 2 hours all in all for someone who never never took the frunk apart. Now I gotta lie...
