    While mounting my front licensplate (yuck!), I noticed my the cooling louvers in operation -cycling open and closed - are the left and right louvers supposed to operate independently, or at the same time?

    They support different cooling systems, so I'd imagine they are independent.

    That makes sense - is there anyway to "force" louver operation - to test if they are working correctly?

    The Service Centre can probably do it.

    Bump!

    I noticed some time ago now that my 70D does not have louvers on the front right radiator. Subsequently the 75 (60) models came out and they all have louvers on both sides. Wonder what happened, why Tesla took them out and then put them back in.
