    Model S HID aftermarket cool white bulb

    I purchased a pair of bulbs from Ebay for $12 or so. They work really well so far. Also, I didn't have to jack it up/pull out the wheels/tires. I just put it in highest suspension, and then turn the wheel all the way towards the side I was replacing. I have enough room to then remove the clips...

    Recommended payment type

    What is the recommended payment type/mechanism/vendor for those of us who are trying to transact between private seller/buyer where shipping is involved? Wanted to be extra vigilant especially that notice saying there are scammers targeting people buying wheels/tires. Thanks!

    SF Bay Area Independent Tesla Repair

    Parts? There are many places that recycle tesla parts nowadays. I don't know where you are but at least where I am there are many many places. That shouldn't be a problem.

    Any nose-cone'ers tried XENARC NIGHT BREAKER LASER headlight bulbs?

    @nguyentoogood - Can I get help to get my DRL frosted like yours? Tried reaching Greg to no avail... Also, how is the OSRAM 7000K holding up? The 7000K scares me.. seems like it's gonna be blue-ish? But seems like you said it's not... from the video it is hard to see how blue.

    Model S HID aftermarket cool white bulb

    I've seen a few older threads about the same topic, for example: Any nose-cone'ers tried XENARC NIGHT BREAKER LASER headlight bulbs?, But I wanted to see if anyone has found any better ones out there? What is a good alternative that's not too expensive but good for replacing OEM 4300K HID bulb...

    LED to HID adapter Model S 2012-2016

    I understand, and that's exactly what I want to do. I want to replace my HID headlight with LED headlights (2nd gen). What does this module do is the question I had. What is LINBUS signal? If there's a spec I might be able to make one myself. It's all just 0s and 1s at the end.

    SF Bay Area Independent Tesla Repair

    I'm also interested in learning different independent Tesla repair/service in the bay area. Not as serious as OP here but I want to be able to avoid crazy SC charges ($250 for per hour rate is nuts).

    Ordering parts

    So I could order MS stuff fine even the stuff that's not part of my older model. But I want to get MX badge as well because someone mentioned to minimize the hood gap you can use MX badge. To get the MX items the SC guy actually said they couldn't do it without a VIN from MX. What they did...

    Model S LED Headlight Emulator for Retrofit

    Hey @P85fromGuam - Do you still have these emulators?
  12. L

    Model S Front Bumper Refresh Instructions

    Success for me. I got them all from Tesla SC. They are much cheaper than ebay (and used) and other places I've seen online. So yea, I guess if you just follow the process: App -> Other -> need parts and list them, then it shouldn't be too difficult.

    2014 Model S HID to LED Replacement

    How is it doing after 2 years of operation now approximately? Also do you have photos? Also thanks for this quick write up. But I'm curious you wrote insert the new led ballast into the headlight assembly. Did the led come with ballast? The link you provided on Amazon didn't look like it...

    Is the guy in the video still doing this work on headlights?

    Change hid to led headlight

    No error or warning from mcu and it all shows as on when you turn on the lights? If so then I don't understand why the new led headlight (not just bulb) won't work in older ms and need an emulator... maybe there's a trick.

    Model S Front Bumper Refresh Instructions

    I meant not the bumper but the other parts you listed. Did you get them on ebay or tesla sc. Cause I'm trying to get them from tesla. The bumper I got is original (oem) tesla. They aren't any different from the one sold at tesla sc (unpainted) afaik. I've seen someone just used the old...

    Ordering parts

    Update: Today I got the message back in app and it just says "Your parts have arrived. Please pick them up by so-and-so date". I wrote back asking for the invoice/price breakdown. I guess this is the way to do it then (via the app)? Let's see if they were able to give me all those parts.

    This is another thread of someone who did something similar (different manufacturer) with pictures of the new led bulbs. https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/change-hid-to-led-headlight.140845/#post-3346158

    Headlight retrofit

    Following. Seems like harness should just work but resistance difference will cause errors (the car will think headlight is off)?
  20. L

    Has anyone installed the older HID headlights on a newer (refreshed) Model S?

    I thought the harness was the same? You can plug it in and it will turn on but I think there can be some errors due to difference in resistance value and what not.
  21. L

    LED to HID adapter Model S 2012-2016

    What does this module really do? My understanding is you can plug in led directly to the harness but the car won't recognize it and so it will have error pop up saying your bulb is bad or something? Then doesn't this module actually just mimic the ballast so the car recognized it as hid? Pretty...

    Ordering parts

    Yes, that's what I am trying to do as well, all those parts I'm buying are "Over the counter" (No VIN restriction). But SC person said I need to have the VIN for the car for them to be able to order these parts cause they can't even "see" those parts once I checked in with my car (which is older...

    Model S Front Bumper Refresh Instructions

    I have not done it on mine yet (still waiting to buy parts from Tesla SC), but I heard the old lower splash shield can just be tucked into the new bumper. Did you purchase those parts at Tesla SC? If so, how did you do it?

    Ordering parts

    Is "their way" = using the app > other ? BTW, I just got a question back in the app messaging asking for VIN number. I repeated my earlier statement telling them this is for refresh and those parts are OTC - no vin needed. Let's see..

    Model S Front Bumper Refresh Instructions

    Thanks @TheCharlesChen ! I am trying that now. My service date is still a week away. I will update this post once I see something. The SC people were OK but I guess they are not really knowledgeable, and they basically pulled up my info and were "stuck" there saying the parts I wanted don't...

    That's the thing, the parts I am trying to buy are all listed as "Over the counter - No VIN".

    Ordering parts

    Yes got that but when I went to the SC they asked for my info and my car shows up and after that they can't pull up the part numbers for other model year. How do I get around that? Will they need to always ask for and match with my car vin? If they do then how did ordering via service appt work?

    Ordering parts

    Does this work for ordering parts that don't belong to your vin # aka for model s bumper refresh?
  32. L

    Model S Front Bumper Refresh Instructions

    I walked in to one of the service centers and they said they need the vin number for that year so I can get those parts. Epc site says over the counter (no vin)? Obviously I don't have the model s refresh so do I just get any vin number any random car? Or is the service dept guy wrong?

    Just a general question on parts list. How can I purchase those parts? Do I just need to walk in to the service center/parts dept and purchase them or do I need to purchase it from tesla site online? Thanks for the help.

    2013 Model S rear door opens by itself : I removed it and all cables/gear look fine. Need advice

    Thanks @hydro for these pics. You mentioned the handle won't extend when you touch it, did you maybe disable handle presentation? Mine also doesn't do this except for driver's door, but I've disabled presentation since the passenger rear door handle always opens the door.

    Passenger door opens by itself

    Thanks. I have this same issue on my RL passenger door but looking for exact screws for calibration. Mine opens by itself upon presenting as well but when retracted it also sits too deep, so not flush with the door, AND it won't present when pressed/touch so it's totally messed up. So to...
