    On current production cars with PUP, is there any non-LED illumination left?

    From what I can tell on my MS, anything that generates light appears to be LED now.

    The only non LED lights on the Classic Model S are the side marker and license plate lights.

    On my refresh MS, the headlights and license plate illumination are both by LEDs. Not sure about side parking lights. Anyone know for sure?

    Where can I get a good set of LED plate bulbs for Early 2015 S?

    These are what I have and they're super easy to install. Also check out the Ultra Bright interior lights; they make a huge difference in the trunk.

    My P85D didn't have them on delivery but when one of them got blown out Tesla replaced them with LED Plate bulbs. And I asked Tesla to replace them on my wife's 85D with LED plate bulbs. Our P100D came from factory with them.

    Did Tesla change the LED incl. housing (which is OEM) or did they install LED bulbs in original housing? I have replaced mine with AO LEDs, but I am willing to pay for an OEM solution.

    I'm pretty sure the side markers are still not LED. I don't have my new car yet so I can't run out and check but if someone turns on their signal you'll be able to see easily if the on/off is sharp or somewhat slower on/off.

    If I can remember correctly they just put LED plate bulbs in the original housing. But they could have replaced the entire housing I just have terrible memory.
