    How much to replace the filter when it wears out?

    And is filter replacement included in the prepaid annual service plans?

    HEPA filter is $200 alone according to another thread.

    Also I don't think there's an official service plan for the X so who knows about the filter replacement.

    Ordered it today. Will see at which speed it reaches the SC and how long they'll ask to install it.

    @MXWing there is a prepaid service plan available for the X? Where?

    Don't believe they are available yet for the X, lots of us are waiting for it.

    That is a huge news and will totally justify my $500 fee to upgrade my 90d order to 100d.
    Say bye bye to the gimmick s of. Pup and the R.I.Ped ventilated seats. Save $3750 and get the 100d. The saving with pay my SC charging for 10 years. Thanks to God and the OP

    Obvious question - will this fit the post-refresh S - which has been shown to have what I think is the identical HEPA filter.

    Wait, there is a catch. This doesn't include the carbon filter s that mentioned in PUP which eliminate odors

    Annual service prepaid is avaliable now isn't it?

    That's something that would impact the filter replace and not the ESA ( extended service agreement)?

    Last I heard the prepaid and extended aren't available yet. People asking the SC and them not knowing.

    Anyone please correct me if I am wrong.

    The two carbon filters is stock. It comes with the X regardless of PUP or non-PUP.

    Sweet. I look forward to hearing when you get it installed. I called my SC and they told me it could be a while. Almost a month.

    This is consistent with what my OA just told me. Then, here is the question: are they working now on every car? do we even need the HEPA if we just want to avoid the bad fume and odors?

    You only have 60 days from delivery to take the prepaid annual inspection options. It's right on Tesla's site?

    This might be useful to you. I would of taken this as a an option if it was broken apart from the rest of PUP.

    Mine work fine, it's mostly the software that's the problem. When in auto, it takes a while for it to detect the fumes and switch to recirculating. Honestly, depending on the life of the filters I would just run it constantly.

    Excuse me , so my question was, for non-PUP/HEPA cars, since they still have the carbon purification filters, do these filters work all the time?

    Yes, like most vehicles, air passes through the filters for cabin air. The two carbon filters are used all of the time, at least it's what I've been told by OA and SC. It's kind of misleading on the website.

    I heard there was an ionizer component to charge the air before hitting the HEPA filter. Is that also in stock X configuration like the carbon filters (non-PUP) as well, or is that the catch with this retrofit that the ionizer isn't included?
