    HV replacement/towing damage

    I have two issues and wanted to see what the hive minds think. 1)my HV on my p85D died 6 weeks ago. Tesla replaced it with a 90kw pack but has software limited it to 85kw. I KNOW I bought an 85. But good lord it’s 5kw. Anyone else had a P85 replaced to become a p90d? I asked service and he...

    Small blue puddle

    I pulled my S out of the garage and there was a very small puddle. About the size of a half dollar. It’s been there twice. It’s very very light blue. Has no odor and isn’t greasy at all. It’s in the front about 10” to the left of the drivers front tire. Im guessing it’s washer fluid leaking...

    Front upper control arm squeak

    I know failed control arms have been discussed ad nauseum here. I actually had all four of my rear control arms replaced 5 months ago because they were cracked. I’ve developed a squeaky upper arm. I know it’s because it just needs to be lubed and not because it’s failing. I also know tesla...

    Perf y with perf brakes and geminis?

    Does anyone have the perf MY with perf brakes and geminis? (I’m asking this way because the sleepers Tesla sometimes makes don’t have the perf brakes) I’m being told by sales that I cannot do this yet I’ve seen it done on YouTube. Anyone here done it? Was it just a straight wheel/tire swap out?

    Humming/buzzing from DU

    About two weeks ago I started noticing a buzzing/humming noise coming from one of my DU’s. I suspect the rear. It also feels a lot more jarring when letting off the accelerator at low speeds.
