Manually Update Firmware in Model S

Hi, Im from Sri Lanka and I own a 2015 Tesla Model S 70D. My current software version is v7.1 (2.10.56) and Tesla wont allow any over the air updates as the current version is too old to connect to their servers. Only option is to ship my car to a Tesla service center as we dont have any SCs in my country and the nearest one is 4000km away in Hongkong. Is there a way around so I can get updates to my car?
