    New option code in design studio: MI03.

    Last time "MI" changed, was with Facelift model S (from "MI00" to "MI01").

    That's interesting! Right now the design studio isn't loading all images here. But what could this mean? It still shows me a 100D battery as the biggest one.

    Does this have anything to do with the shutdown today?

    It seems every time an update comes out for existing cars there is news of new things for new cars.

    Something of a sweetener for existing owners.

    Well, the compositor (image generator) is currently configured to display the same images for MI01 and MI03.

    I disagree. MCU has never had it's own code. "MI" is a major revision code

    Who knows. I guess it depends on if they consider the new MCU a major revision. If MI03 does indicate a larger change then I imagine the new MCU would still be used.

    I wonder what major revision MI02 was for the X?

    I agree with you. Let's see what might change.

    Not sure what MI02 meant for Model X. It came into design studio in fall 2016.

    For Model S, MI01 was Facelift (MI00 being Pre-Facelift) - this is 100 % certain
    The design studio jpg's usually takes some time to update. This happened today or yesterday.

    This car with VIN247689 probably got the new MCU2 as it has been reported that Model S cars with VIN 245xxx+ does most likely have the new MCU. This car still got MI01 and is probably built early march and have the new MCU2.

    Strange thing is that this Model X got MI03. VIN in the LOW 80's indicate MCU1 for Model X. I think the cut-over for Model X is in the range of 90xxx+ for the new MCU2

    We need someone to take delivery of a MI03 Model S to see if something is changed. If it is a facelift with e.g. new LED Rear lights, etc then it will be very easy to see :D

    Where are you seeing this MI03 code (or lack of)? I looked at the 2 car links you provided but didn't see any mention of this code. Is it embedded somewhere in the VIN?

    We just picked up a Model S with MI03 code. As compared to our old 2017, the car had the new MCU, vanity mirrors, different feel to lane departure "shaking", backup camera image seems dark and overly contrasted. Other than that, nothing visibly new.

    When did you pick it up? When was it produced?

    "MI03" was enabled in design studio today or yesterday

    Doesn’t matter when they enabled it, for any option they would change old orders to the new code at some point if they are building them with the new option.

    The code does not need to change first in the design studio for cars to be built with the new option.

    Well the code changes do correspond to physical production changes, like autopilot 2.0 and 2.5, no question about it. For instance, August 21, 2017 I called «APH3» on DS and whoopie doo all cars produced since that date is hw2.5.

    (Sure if someone with a previous order got manufacturing date after the change they might get the physical update.)

    So I dont get your point.

    Point is that even though the design studio changed it yesterday cars produced and delivered can have that option since a while. Which seems to be the case due to whitex having a car with that option code. So when the design studio changes it is irrelevant really.

    Picked it up this past Tuesday (3/27). It was produced shortly before then. The code was there in the spec link before delivery.
