    I scheduled routine tire rotation for my model s. Sc rep asked if I wanted the plate installed too. Asked how long it would take. Surprised by answer 45 minutes for that and the tire rotation. I don't know the cost of the plate but labor pretty low.

    I had the titanium retrofit mounted by the Service Center and it was free of charge.

    I thought someone had posted that investor relations replied to them and said investors should be prepared for a cost of 'several millions.' If we assume there were 30,000 cars out there before the fix got integrated into the production line and that labor and materials cost $250 for each car that is $7.5 million or about $.06/share. That sounds pretty reasonable to me. If they happened to get any ZEV income this quarter that will easily cover it.
