    Flashing Blue Light at Supercharger

    I supercharge no problem, but I’ve been getting the blue light flashing anytime I try to Chademo charge. Multiple stations/charging stopped problem. I’m wondering if my Chademo adaptor is messed up or if the onboard charger for the car is going out.

    Audiophiles - Amazon Music Ultra HD?

    Agreed. Even in the right environment, studies show the average ear would not be able to discern the difference between true lossless and compressed. That being said, Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos is a true game changer IMO. Listening to music on compatible headphones is like experiencing HD TV...

    Audiophiles - Amazon Music Ultra HD?

    Need some audiophiles now that Apple has released both lossless audio and Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio. Question: Would either of these features even benefit me in my MCU 2 Model S? Lossless: From my research, I’m guessing no. Bluetooth seems to not have the capacity to carry that much...

    Supercharger - Portland, OR

    After doing more research I agree with you now. It looks like downtown Seattle and downtown San Francisco are the same setups. $6 isn’t much, so it’s still nice to have an option. And you’re right, the Portland-Metro area expansion has been great with Tigard and Hillsboro.

    Supercharger - Portland, OR

    This is a huge disappointment for me. Living in the city and owning a condo where I cannot install a charger, I’ve been waiting for a Portland Supercharger since 2018 (“coming Q4 of 2018” at the time). I can charge at work but it’s not the same as charging at home. Was hoping for a charger in...

    Ugliest Tesla ever. Today in Santa Clarita

    Glad he got the refreshed front fascia installed...you know, for looks.

    Hit and Run. Software update screwed me over

    I had a hit and run from a parking lot before (Old Audi A4 - no Sentry Mode haha). Did you file a police report? Generally when it’s a hit and run your deductible should be lower. I think my standard deductible was $500, but they only charged me $300 for the hit and run.

    TuneIn fix - works every time.

    Do you have TuneIn Premium? I’ve been hoping Tesla will start allowing the Premium content/stations to be accessed as I no longer have an AM/FM/XM tuner (infotainment upgrade). Would love to have sports in my car again. Anyone know if this recent TuneIn enhancement added that functionality?

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Let me know how they do fixing it. I actually had mine go in after the first attempt. They replaced the entire dashmat (Since the trim was warped really bad) however I still feel like the dashmat is not attached correctly. I can feel a small bump above the MCU (see picture - kind of hard to see...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Of the people who have upgraded from MCU1 to MCU2, how has your repair quality been? My screen used to be flush with the top of the trim. Now, there’s a lot of BLACK screen showing (smaller on the right side and larger on the left side) with the metal trim somewhat wavy. Is MCU2 LARGER than...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Interesting. I think I’m having the same problem. After getting the Infotainment Upgrade my car connects to 3G (instead of LTE) every time I leave my underground garage. Takes about 10 minutes before it finally switches to LTE. Never had a problem on my old MCU.

    Arachnid wheel spacers - size?

    I got my 20mm spacers professionally installed at 503 Motoring in Portland, OR while getting my calipers painted. Installed on 21 inch staggered turbines. They mentioned something about being able to adjust the wheel well on the earlier Model S (before the refresh) but couldn’t get anything...

    Driver side USB dead

    It just went dead. My dashcam stopped working so initially I thought My USB jump drive was having issues. But then I swapped my phone charger/usb jump drive and the dashcam was now working and the phone charger stopped. One item to note: I’m using a scandisk flash drive that still works just...

    Driver side USB dead

    Nice work. I hope it works out for you! I had the exact same problem (except mine was the right Side). Luckily I was still under warranty otherwise I’d be driving around without it fixed haha.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I thought the same thing. However, I got my MCU2 Upgrade/HW3 done last week (and besides the shoddy finishing work which is getting fixed tomorrow) and I could never go back to MCU1. It’s just SO FAST, it kind of startles me a bit. I do hope (and anticipate) they’ll add more features over the...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Besides the screen film, you happy with the looks of everything else? Also, even if this is their first MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade...why is this different from replacing bricked MCU1’s? Or retrofitting FSD hardware to MCU2 vehicles? I thought it would be a similar procedure, but judging from the...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Just got my MCU2/FSD computer done today. Normally I’d be excited, but they did a horrendous job (see photos attached). The trim is all banged up and wonky. The metal now shows significantly more screen (especially at the top left and decreases as it moves to the right). If it weren’t for...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I was on the fence, but I’ve caved. Service appointment next week. (Same config: AP2.5). My Bluetooth has been very spotty, voice commands don’t work at all...It’s been very sluggish for a while now, specifically around this most recent software update. A couple days ago I thought I would need...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I agree. I was scheduled to get my upgrade done today but I’ve pushed out a couple of weeks to mid-April due to COVID-19. I felt like kind of a dick getting it done during these times. We’ll see if I keep my appointment or push it out farther.

    Had to drive my wife's ICE

    It was sarcasm. But forgetting basic functions like forgetting to turn the car off, sometimes turning the car off while in drive, and the surprise at the first stop sign when regen doesn’t kick in...maybe it wasn’t?

    Had to drive my wife's ICE

    It’s amazing...I’ve had a Tesla for 2 years now and almost completely forgot how to drive an “automatic.” Besides forgetting to turn it off, which I seem to struggle with every time I drive a petrol vehicle, I just feel so unsafe in any other car. 1) EAP on the freeway - I’m still alert, but my...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    100% not the most likely scenario. This will be available for all MCU1’s going forward.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Fingers crossed they throw in the towel and decide it’s cheaper to upgrade the MCU’s in all AP2/2.5 vehicles versus the ongoing cost of developing and updating the software for MCU1’s. Maybe that’s the delay!?!? (It’s not, but I want to dream)

    MCU1 S Owners: Logic FOR/AGAINST Tesla's $2,500 "Infotainment Upgrade"? (Not required for FSD)

    Deftdawg and Viper, appreciate the insight. My current MCU is fine, I live in Portland, OR where temperatures are usually milder (and always have the AC on). I think it’s prudent to wait for the darn thing to fail, especially since I’m under warranty still. What irks me is this cash grab Tesla...

    MCU1 S Owners: Logic FOR/AGAINST Tesla's $2,500 "Infotainment Upgrade"? (Not required for FSD)

    Do you know how long ago Tesla updated the software to stop the data logging? I have a February 2018 build MCU1, and I’m torn between upgrading (assuming my MCU1 will fail at some point) or rolling the dice and hoping it doesn’t fail on me (since the logging has been reduced). Any insight from...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    This makes you wonder - what type of visualizations will MCU1/HW3 cars have? I mean, if it has city driving, wouldn’t it NEED to show stop signs/traffic lights? Otherwise how would you know if the car plans on stopping?

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    That was my initial thought, however given they already charge close to $2k for an out-of-warranty MCU1...you’ll be disappointed 6 months from now (or not upgrading haha). I’m personally torn. I have AP2.5 and already have dashcam and sentry mode. I also use SiriusXM but could live without it...

    Question on Full Self Drive Capability

    AP2.5 is the requirement for Dashcam/Sentry Mode video recording, not the MCU. Ive got a Feb 2018 Model S with MCU1, but use the dashcam and Sentry features (no rear video though, just front and both sides).

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Honestly, I disliked it because of the tone of the question. See the two examples below: 1) “Krash, Tell us how you know that Tesla is working on MCU1 to MCU2 path. More than "internal". Please.” Everyone’s impression can be different, but I get a tone that says you a) don’t trust OP and his...

    Voice Commands not working & car reducing my iPhone ringer

    Alan, Im having both issues. AP2.5/MCU1. Voice commands haven’t worked at all in recent updates (it’ll listen, and sometimes show me predictive text of what I said, but it doesn’t relay anything back to the mothership and the request just disappears). For the cell phone issue - my MCU/iPhone...

    MCU1 performance improvement & browser improvement. Simple trick by Thomas The Tesla Tuner..

    I agree Pinball, when I bought my S early 2018, I had a functional browser where I bookmarked a local 24 hour forecast and a 10 day forecast. I also had google bookmarked in case I wanted a quick sports score update. Nothing major, but it worked nicely for what I needed in V8 and I didn’t have...

    2020.4

    I’m in the same boat. I’m still on 2019.36.2.1 (I’m way behind) and my last update of 2019.40.x was pulled before I could download. So today I was excited to get 2020.4.1 - got to 50% and then just disappeared. Now my 2019.36 is “up to date” #advancedtab Luckily I have a very stable build for...

    P85D to 100D

    I 100% agree. I have a 75D and continue to dream about having Ludacrous mode. However, I rarely get to punch it fully down on my current car, and 4 second 0-60 is still a ton on fun. It would be nice to have an increased power band for highway overtaking speeds, however the 75D (or in this...

    2020.4

    Good insight. If it goes another month or so I’ll definitely follow up with Tesla. FWIW - I park overnight two-stories underground with no WiFi/LTE. I’ll see software updates become available (including 2019.40 at one point) but many times they get pulled from my car before I can connect to...

    2020.4

    Not me! I’m still on 2019.36.2.1 (Feb 2018 MCU1 build). “Software is up to date” That being said it’s a “stable” build, and I don’t think anything new has come out (besides quicker NOA lane changes). And maybe, just maybe, less software updates help the eMMC?

    Which model version holds its value best?

    The Model X holds its value significantly better than the Model S. Once the Model 3 became mass produced, the S started depreciating significantly faster. my guess is once the Model Y is up and running, the Model X could have the same fate. But to-date, the X has held its value very well.

    HW 3.0 Upgrade Tracker

    I don’t have HW3 yet, but in rare circumstances I get aggressive phantom breaking on the freeway. In my cases, the cars GPS seems to be malfunctioning, and it keeps placing me on roads NEXT to the freeway (with lower speed limits) or roads ABOVE me - i.e. overpasses. Might not be your case at...

    Has anyone paid the 7k FSD upgrade post delivery?

    I have a February 2018 Build MCU1/AP 2.5. The “entertainment” is not YouTube and games, it’s the thrill of seeing technology evolve before my eyes. Autopilot has made tremendous strides since I’ve owned the car, and I love being able to be a part of it. If I were you, I would NOT buy FSD for...

    Has anyone paid the 7k FSD upgrade post delivery?

    Here’s how I’d justify it. $4,000 for current (and future) features, including NoA, Smart Summon, and city street driving (assuming you’ll never get L5 with this car). The other $3,000 is the entertainment/FOMO avoidance/being a part of the development year-by-year as it continues to improve...

    Quick question about used Model S and FSD

    Level 5 autonomy and TRUE SELF DRIVING is not here, and probably never will be with current hardware suite. That’s nowhere near their question, however, as this poster wants to know if his used Tesla will have the FSD package, as defined by Tesla. I don’t have an answer for you, but Tesla is...

    Model S HW 2.0 to HW 3.0 Upgrades? (Not HW2.5 or Model 3 upgrades to HW3)

    Years? Years!?!? Hahaha...People REALLY want to see their traffic cones I guess. What we know: A very limited amount of S/X/3’s are getting HW3 at the moment. MCU1 currently isn’t on that short list. That being said the overreaction that MCU1 isn’t compatible/wont work for HW3 is so comical...

    Tesla Software Update

    Tesla’s software updating process is SO FRUSTRATING. I live in a condo and park underground (with no WiFi) so when an update is available I like to download it. I received some version of 2019.40 on Monday but didn’t have a chance to download. It has since been pulled and now it says my car is...
