    Hi all - need your help on recommendations for ideal brake pads and rotors since the ones quoted from Tesla Service were way too expensive. This is what they are charging for my 2013 Model S P85+.


    TESLA SERVICE ESTIMATE

    Front Rotors Part #: 6006-420-00-A $240.00 each
    Rear Rotors Part #: 6006-431-00-C $165.00 each

    Front Pads Service Kit (Brembo??) Part #: HP1000-T (1055066-00-B) $285.00
    Rear Pads SVC Kit Part #: 1068331-00-A $195.00

    ---------------

    Open to recommendations on best place to get this replacement. Thanks!!

    How many miles you have ? Given that these brakes last long time (I have never replaced) I would think in my opinion this is reasonable since brakes last long

    Hey there - I've got 120k miles and had them changed around 40k miles when I bought it used from Tesla.

    You can check carid.com for some lower cost rotors ..I believe when I changed on my P85D awhile back the tech mentioned the pads are actually AC//GM ones and one could actually purchase cheaper from them ..I have 90k miles on X P100 and my pads rotors still good ..me personally given weight of car would go with oem which are the Brembo I think

    So I’m at 52k and 3.5 yrs out on my model S and looks like I new front pads - they’re at the squealer bar. This does seem more wear than what’s reported here but I do drive agressively and some of my family members prefer to drive low regen so I think that explains it. For example on my Acura TL i needed pads at 10k.

    Is there any possibility of doing pads via Tesla mobile service?

The front rotor is compatible but the rear is not. It does not have the groove that seats perfectly againts the hub as compared to the oem. I do not recommend. See pictures.
