    Drive Unit Replacement

    Question: I'll get a new DU for my 2014 P85+ in a couple of weeks. Which components will this encompass? Engine, inverter obviously... anything else? Based on experiences in this group will it be most likely one of the "next generation" with higher durability? Anything to watch out for...
