    Tesla doesn't have dealers. It has service centers.

    Technically OP could take the car to a non-Tesla car dealer. I'm sure that's what s/he meant :D

    Strange that brakes need to be serviced after only 70k. With Regen on all the time, I hardly use the brakes. If it is pads only that need to be replaced, then that should be a fairly easy DIY job.High Performance/Heavy Duty front pads are only CAD$ 80.- at Rock Auto.

    Surprising that the fronts are gone so soon. Clearly, you are having way too much fun!

    If you purchased the annual service plan I believe they are a covered item.

    If you have the plan then brake fluid flushes are covered, brake pads & rotors are not.

    Service plans

    The Model S uses bog-standard Brembo calipers, any reputable brake shop will be able to fit you new pads and check that your rotors are still within tolerance.
