    In mid-2014 the screen resolution of the dashboard was upgraded from 1280 x 480 to 1920 x 720.
    How do you tell by VIN # if the car has it?

    This occurred at about the same time as the older Dolphin Grey paint was replaced so in my reply to your other thread on the Grey Paint, the answer to
    this one and the Gen 1.5 seats will be about the same... roughly the 043000 VIN range. Again Tesla does not build by VIN, VINS are assigned based upon a function of
    confirmation date. As an orderer, you can delayed delivery up to 6 months into the future and such requests have mucked up the built by VIN range a bit.

    Suggestion, go visit your local Service Center manager and provide he/she the last 6 of the VIN, they can easily pull up the records on your S and tell
    you what options were in the build. The screen resolution may be a bit more difficult however.

    If I'm not mistaken the easiest way to tell is by looking at the bezel, old resolution screens have a thicker bezel, the new screens have a thin one going around the screen.
