    The first AP1 car upgraded to MCU2

    If I add $500 for the radio upgrade - then $3K for the MCU2 vs.$335 for the daughterboard for an AP1 car. Leaning towards the daughterboard and maybe get a model X when they do the refresh -- in 2022? But does anyone know if the daughterboard upgrade helps with voice commands and speed of...

    Daughter Board replaced. Now more issues!!

    I have a 2016 P90D as well with AP1 and debating b/t daughterboard and MCU2. Sounds like the original poster is experiencing some issues with just the daughterboard replacement. Would be curious if this is an isolated instance or those with AP1 cars are experiencing the same issues with just...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Yes - I have this same question. I have a 2016 P90D with AP1. Can either go for the $2500 upgrade to MCU2 or a $350 upgrade and replace the daughterboard. If you are pre-AP it sounds like you get LTE but I already have LTE. If you are AP 2.0 - then you get a bunch of stuff. Not sure if...

    The first AP1 car upgraded to MCU2

    I have a 2016 Model S P90D with AP1. My service center offered me either the upgrade to MCU2 for $2500 or to replace the daughterboard with a 64GB chip for $334.50. Would you do the daughterboard or just the bite the bullet and get the $2500 MCU2 upgrade even though with an AP1 car you don't...

    Moving from 2016 Model S P90D to 2021 Model X - considerations

    Thanks for the replies. Still haven't pulled the trigger. Was going to last week and include FSD but now thinking I might opt for the subscription if/when it comes out next year. The other thing holding me back is my car only has 35K miles and I'm not even really driving it as I'm working...

    Moving from 2016 Model S P90D to 2021 Model X - considerations

    I'm a current owner of a 2016 Model S P90D (just Insane NOT Ludicrous) and AP1 and original nose cone that I ordered in Feb 2016 for $137K including taxes. Unfortunately I did the calculation that if I didn't buy the Model S and bought Tesla stock then and held it - it would be worth $2...

    P90D Battery Pack

    Any thoughts on what would be considered an abnormal amount of degrade? I have a 2016 P90D (not Ludicrous) that I ordered in late Feb 2016 and was delivered March 25th 2016. It looks like I got the V1 battery after looking at the battery sticker. The car is plenty fast --even in Insane mode --...

    Thanks and yes that is still a possibility. If someone can meet me at the Danville CA Costco this Sat -- it is a smoking deal. If I bring back home the wheels and tires -- I will probably do just -- keep one as a spare and sell the rest individually etc.

    Black lug nut caps?

    Thanks for the info. If I understand you correctly -- you ended up sticking with the first gen lugnuts but used the black caps from the 2nd generation lugnuts that you got from the Tesla service center. If so -- do you happen to know if you can just buy the black caps from Tesla and how much...

    Black lug nut caps?

    Btw -- how did these work. I have a generation 1 lug nut system as well and am getting glossy black powdercoated wheels. Also what size are the lug nuts for 19 inch OEM wheels -- did the 21-23mm size work for you? Thanks!

    Will you sell your new Model 3 for a profit?

    Agreed. Driving it and selling it for no profit -- will probably reinforce that you bought it with no intention of reselling it.

    Will you sell your new Model 3 for a profit?

    Sure. The question is if you buy a Tesla (or any car with a tax credit) can you ever sell it and not have to pay penalties and fees. The answer won't be NO -- you can never sell it. Then it becomes how long do you need to keep it before selling. Plenty of people are selling or trading...

    Will you sell your new Model 3 for a profit?

    How about this scenario? I buy it and drive it for say 8 months. And sell it for it for no profit. So no capital gains. But 8 months is probably the sweet spot when the Model 3 is still in demand (given all the reservations) and all the Tax Credits will have been exhausted. Would someone...

    Turn Model 3 + Cash into Model X

    Thanks and good reminders. Let's say in 3 more years the P90D will have 75K miles and be worth $60K -- so ~$25K depreciation after 36 months or about $695 per month for the next 3 years. Not that bad for a 2 year old P90D.

    Turn Model 3 + Cash into Model X

    I'm not sure if I will be able to sell buy and resell the Model 3 right away and still pocket the tax credit. That was the path I was thinking but I think I need to hold on to the car for awhile to qualify? Let's say the Model 3 -- depreciates from $55K to $40K in one year. The net of the...

    Turn Model 3 + Cash into Model X

    Tesla service manager in Dublin CA told me that aftermarket wheels void the warranty?

    That's correct-- the service manager said if I bought a used set of Tesla OEM 21 rims -- the SC would mount and balance them for me as well. He just said if they were aftermarket wheels -- that Tesla can't stand by them and if something happened to the car the point of failure may be due to the...

    My new grey 21" wheels.....

    Nice job -- this is exactly how I felt when I ordered ny P90D and just got them with the stock 19s (though I thought I was getting the dual spoke but they give me the slipstreams). Now I'm looking for 21 grey wheels or an 20 inch aftermarket option. So how do you feel after a month of so --...

    Tesla service manager in Dublin CA told me that aftermarket wheels void the warranty?

    Can this be true? Basically he said that Tesla might not cover issues since they have been burned before? Sorry 1 week old owner of a P90D trying to figure out if I want to get aftermarket 20s of find a set of used Tesla 21s.

    can you create passenger profiles

    thanks -- but forgetting the cost for a moment given i'm on a "unlimited" plan. does that mean my phone would need to be in my car which would also defeat the purpose? perhaps I'm missing something. or do I need to get one of those mobile hotspots separate from my phone and leave it in the...

    L or no L?

    I ordered a P90D with insane and confirmed on Feb 26th. I thought that would be plenty fast -- but having some second thoughts. They said I could not add it later -- not sure why?
