    Yahoo! I'm so happy I decided not to upgrade to 75kwh last year! It is now only $750 (AUD) to upgrade! I decided I wanted to keep that buffer of 5kwh of unusable capacity to keep the battery healthy. But now I've changed my mind. :)

    I wonder if I can get a 75D decal to replace the 70D?

    At that price, who wouldn't. I doubt there will be any software locked 70 or 60 S or X left soon.

    The guys in the States say that Tesla provide one with the upgrade (at your next service). And all your screens will show 75D

    The upgrade actually makes your car a 75D, and that includes free re-badging at the service centre.

    I've already had mine done, and both the My Tesla page and the Tesla iPhone app list my car as a 75D.

    How many extra kms did you find you had after the update? I'm still on the fence even with the price drop. Currently have a 70 and figure the extra 5 is useful as buffer for battery health.

    349kms is same as me, 379 sounds nice though. I'm sure I'll do it in a moment of weakness!
