What’s with the noise cone hanging off? I’m guessing the police came and towed it?
Nose cone was hanging when I came back today. By the time I left police still hadn’t shown up. Car was plugged into charger. So the police will have fun trying to get it out.

It's possible to remotely copy the FOB but more likely that the thief managed to steal the FOB.

For owners of the older Model S fob, you can request the new one (I did last year, and Mobile Service delivered and provisioned it for me).

Also another reason why you should activate the Pin to Drive, so even if someone steels the fob, unless you provide the code to them, they can't drive away with your Model S.

And neither can you when your MCU gives up its ghost ;)

How much was the fob upgrade? (I should've requested that when the ranger was here last week.)

What year "older Model S" can the key fob be upgraded to the newer more secure fob ?

Specifically can I upgrade my 2015 P85D fob ?

What does this cost?

Mine is 2016 January car, did it last year and it cost €141.50 per fob plus €6.21 for 3V battery (tax not included). You should qualify for sure...

It must have been owned by a dealer, otherwise the owner could have just tracked it in their app. Stolen on a test drive makes sense. That said, you’d think the OP would notice if it had a dealer plate or advertisement in the plates place like most cars in dealer lots do.

Had a paper plate like if it was just sold pending metal plates. I stated I gave the the police the plate number in original post.
