    As a retired technologist I should be able to get this... but how do you get to those 'Service Screens'? I can't access the V&T or Balancing Grid screens, etc. I look at the 'Service Info' screen but all that has is the VIN, miles, next service, etc.

    My FW seems to have been upgraded and is Rev. 3.6.7.17 and VMS Image 8.67.0 .
    Need a jumpstart! Thanks!

    Got it now. Great!

    FYI, I've successfully downloaded the log file. For anybody still exploring this, for my 2008 Roadster 1.5 :
    - I used a 4GB USB flash (larger wouldn't work)
    - It HAD to be formatted FAT32 . An older one using FAT wouldn't work
    - On my car, the switch HAD to be OFF (not consistent with some other comments).

    Yes the car absolutely has to be off, and not charging, in order to download the logs.
