    Anyone want to take a stab at diagnosis? Screens blank, no blinkers, no high beams, but "all else" works...

    Happened a few times to my 2015 p85d shortly after the MCU2 upgrade. Dual button reboot fixed it each time. Hasn't happened in the last few months so I'm hoping it's something that has been addressed through a software update.

    Not only do you get new displays, but the computers behind the displays are also upgraded leading to much better responsiveness!

    2018 Model S 75D - are these good?

    I've got a 2015 p85d, battery and motor warranty is about to expire (november). I've been contemplating this, and have come to the conclusion that I still love the car, and it's in great shape. I'm keeping it, and banking some cash for future expenses, which will without doubt be way less than...

    CPO w/ SC01

    My understanding is that if Tesla ends up owning a car w/ SCO1, they pull it off. If it never was owned (beyond initial manufacture) by Tesla, it stays.

    Air Bubbles in Instrument Cluster

    I've heard that there is a thick liquid that can leak out and make a mess below the screen that can be difficult to clean up. Perhaps someone who has had it happen can chime in. I had my screens updated, cost 1800, very worth it because not only are the screens nicer, the computers are better...

    Goodbye all; Good riddance Tesla

    I have to say I have the same vintage MS, and my experience has not been at all similar. Hope you find something you like better....

    Owners whom choose to go without any warranty, please chime in...

    Bought my 2015 P85D 4 years ago, from Tesla, with a 4 year warranty (in addition to the remainder of the 8 year Battery & DU warranty). My 4 year warranty just ran out, and the 8 year Bat & DU runs out in November. Did a fair amount of thinking on this, mostly on whether or not to trade it in...

    Potentially 1st Tesla

    Quote: "I'm very nervous that even after getting into my first one (barely), I'd be hit with a motor or battery failure or HUGE repair that I simply can't afford". I think you've answered your own question. My advice would be that if you need a car at this point, buy something cheap and take...

    Yay! I also just installed and it appears (after a very short test) to be fixed! :cool: :)

    2018 Model S 75D - are these good?

    So the problem your facing is that it's an expensive car that is going (gone?) off warranty. It could be just fine, but it also could end up being expensive. Potential large expenditures are battery and drive units, less expensive (but not trivial) are things like displays, suspension etc...

    Got the infotainment upgrade yesterday

    And it's just what I had hoped, and a bit more. The clarity of the screens is much improved, speed of map updates vastly better, workable internet browser, faster and better voice commands. What I hadn't expected was a significant improvement in quality for the sound system (I've got the UHFS...

    The fact that it vaporized the rodent should be warning enough! 😆

    Considering to purchase 2016 Model S 90D

    I bought a 2015 (nov) P85D right at 4 years ago from Tesla, with a 4 year (which is about to expire) warranty (battery / motors warrantied until Nov). It's been a great car, very few problems all covered by Tesla (most by mobile which is nice since I live a fair distance from a TSC). With my...

    Work done prior?

    I purchased my 2015 MS P85D (11/15 build) in April 2019 from Tesla (3 yr lease return, 27K mi, now has 60k). Came with a 4 yr warranty (in addition to what is remaining on the 8 year battery & drive train warranty. So in April 2023 my 4 year warranty will expire (time flies!), and in Nov 2023...

    Finally took a big gulp out of the Kool Aid

    In defense of the S (also having come from an S4 (mine had the V8) ) the S4 is quite a bit smaller, so I would expect it to feel a good bit more nimble than the S.

    10+ minutes to start my "old" tesla is just an inconvenience b/c I chose to do the eMMC recall and install firmware updates

    I had several errors on my 2015 P85D after eMMC replacement. Had to bring the car back in. They replaced the eMMC board (apparently the one they put in was bad). All is fine now. Overall I've had relatively few problems w/ my car (~60K mi) and when I have had problems, I have had good...

    2015 Model S Voice Command Button

    Wrap on the nosecone?

    Finished! Went pretty well, my biggest problem being contamination (dust) getting under the wrap. Got better as it went and still have a good bit of wrap for fixing any issues that might arise. All in all I'm quite pleased!
