    Just got back from yearly service for our 85D and they did alignment(awesome!) but noticed at the top of the alignment page that it's for "Model S: Single Motor Rear Wheel Drive : Air Suspension(SU01) / Performance Plus (SU02/SUPP)". Do they use the same alignment specs for all Dual Motor and Single Motor models?

    Anyone? I searched myself and could not find anything. Usually AWD variants will have different toe adjustments because the thrust angle changes as the car is pulled partly from the front vs only the rear.

    I had one done in November and it just says:

    "Four Wheel Alignment - Check and Adjust (with Air Suspension)

    Performed four wheel alignment with ride height calibration."

    They charged me over $500 for it.

    I just had my one-year service done and the alignment was $150 (the service center called me and confirmed the cost with me before they performed the alignment.) However, on the bill it showed up as $550, since they didn't break out the cost of the service ($400) separately. I would venture a guess your over $500 cost included the cost of your service visit?

    Geez, and I thought $189 for lifetime alignment was a lot.

    Can you post your alignment sheet for your D car as it will have the specs in it.

    I didn't get a separate alignment sheet. Only the service invoice. Didn't know I had the option of getting a sheet that showed details. I've attached the part of the invoice where it lists the alignment work.

    By law, even without you requesting it, they are supposed to provide the alignment sheet showing before and after.

    Also, your alignment was for coil suspension. Air suspension may have different parameters even with the same model.

    If they did a one year service they didn't tell me. Also they verbally quoted me 450 for the alignment. The other $100 was for mounting/balancing my snow tires.
