    I can no longer, in good conscience, recommend Tesla vehicles.

    I have only owned BMW's before my tesla model S. Still have a 335 convertible and Diesel X5. If you want good service BMW is great. Free pastries and Coffee/Hot Chocolate. Free diagnostic to find more service issues. Sometimes long escalating back to the mothership in Germany to...

    2021 Model S Plaid/LR Fire

    Just curious. At 9pm (I think that's when it happened) was Mr Smith heading to or away from home? Maybe worth a look on the route for any debris that may have punctured the pack.

    2021 Model S Plaid/LR Fire

    Guys do you think this is possible? How would you force the door open? Pretty sure you couldn't kick open a door if it was locked. Window yes, but expect door lock is crash tested not to open. Reuters reported that the owner of the Plaid Model S was an “executive entrepreneur” and that he...

    2021 Model S Plaid/LR Fire

    Will need to wait for tesla car video or data from the car to understand what happened but this seems odd. "Mark Geragos, of the law firm Geragos and Geragos, confirmed he is representing the owner and called for Tesla to take the vehicles off the road." Why would you need a Celebrity Lawyer...

    North America radio/SiriusXM tuner upgrade after MCU2 Upgrade

    Yes they told me the same thing and its wrong. I had 4 service center people around the car trying to figure it out. After the upgrade you should see SXM and get the preview channel. Otherwise how do you see the screen with the new radio ID... dah... The radio ID does change. So tell them you...

    Home Automation

    CQC just got open sourced so it is now free. If you can edit jpg's or write small scripts it is very powerfull way to create touch screen interfaces for your home. I use Ipads but you can use windows or any browser to be the viewers also. https://www.charmedquark.com/

    Strange Noise Behind Model S Dashboard

    Not really sure I expected to see this in a 3 year old car. Any experts want to weigh in? Oxidation? Rust? Could thse be steel welds?

    Anyone do radio restore after MCU2 upgrade yet?

    YMMV but I called after tuner swap and they said no 3 months free of XM. I said it was a new tuner and ID in a Tesla. Guess they still concerdered it a swap of radio. arrggg. I said GFY and they came down to(after the fake let me check with my manager) $30 for 6 months. I will cancel a week...

    Make sure they check the Front Suspension AFT Links. I had same kind of noise and seems to be common on model S's. Good luck.

    Anyone do radio restore after MCU2 upgrade yet?

    Had Tuner put in last week. Did the MCU2 a few months ago. It was a lot of work for them since it's behind dash on driver side. Not sure how much dash they need to take out. My car lost Siriusxm after MCU2 so wanted that back. There is a couple different tuners they can order so make sure...

    Anyone do radio restore after MCU2 upgrade yet?

    Just had mine done last week. late 2016 model facelift model s with premium sound. 99% sure it was just the Tuner module under the driver side dash and nothing to do with the physical Antennas. You can see the tuner module(xm antena cables) if you put your steering wheel all the way up and look...

    North America radio/SiriusXM tuner upgrade after MCU2 Upgrade

    Ok SirriusXM +FM tuner was added (removed after MCU2 upgrade) and working great now. Nice to have Sat Radio again in my car. Took a couple of trips as I was only the second car to have the digital tuner put in car after the MCU2 upgrade. First time they put in part: Part #: 7281911-00-A MODEL S...

    North America radio/SiriusXM tuner upgrade after MCU2 Upgrade

    I thought the same thing. Service said there was no way to see the new Radio ID on the screen. They said just go onlne and resubscribe with your old radio ID. Did that and no Joy. Will bring the car back in tomroow again. Bet there is some kind of option code that needs to be added in software...

    Used Model S

    Picked up a used 75D 12 months ago. Love the car more every day (more after the HW3 and MCU upgrade) Learn as much as you can about your car and options so when you show up you have knowledge to ask any remaining questions(premium connectivity, FSD, other options). Pictures I received were...

    Is anyone impressed with the overly-hyped "holiday update"?

    I Like the IC much better. ok with the smaller fonts and moving the PRDN gears over to the lower left. Moving up the speed sign from the left of car to top right is good improvement since they now have a moving speed sign right of the car as you pass them. Also now looks like the "D" goes blue...

    Should I buy a tesla model s 2016 75d

    Probably if you need to ask FUSC is just a bonus. Surprised how little I supercharge. I think premium connectivity is more important in the long run. You will use that and will save you $$$ every month if it's included.

    Radio upgrade coming soon for MCU2 upgrade

    Not real happy about the cost but will probably add to get XM back.

    Full Self Driving "Capability"

    +1 on HW 3.0 upgrade. FSD on highways is much better with the hardware upgrade. City driving is still a work in progress. Also the ding when the stop light you are stopped at turns green is a great new feature. Perfect for a safe quick look at phone.

    Customer service appears to be broken

    From my experience both sales and service are controlled by the mothership. Most employees will not deviate from procedures no matter how small as it may end their tesla career. It's the trade off we make to own a product that is innovating constantly. Much like the Steve Jobs days at apple...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I currently have a E93 and a F15 and have not seen any nav unit upgrades or offers from BMW. I put a avinusa touchscreen head unit in my E93 and would have loved to upgrade to a BMW CIC or NBT unit. No way would BMW do the MCU2 type upgrade for only $2,500. Wish they would.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Each SC is different but my experience with Tesla is the service department isn't a major revenue stream like some other car companies. BMW charges hourly rate for everything and would never have a line item that says "Goodwill". Sure I wish Tesla was more DIY friendly with...

    LED Retrofit Possible w/Armrest Interior Lights?

    Doubt:Buy Model S used 2014 or wait I can afford M3

    Looks like a lot of cars coming off lease past month. Best value is to buy from Tesla a late 2016 Nose refreshed Model S 75D with Full Self driving. Make sure it says Full Self-Driving Capability. So it has all the Cameras and can be upgraded to HW3 someday.
