No battery sticker on my CPO

    Just got my CPO 2014 Model S 85 5 days ago. It's a May 2014 build, was leased by one owner in New Jersey until it hit 30k miles, then used as a service loaner for another 3k miles. As far as I know, it hasn't had any battery issues before (although who knows, since Tesla doesn't release the service history). When I bought it, I couldn't find the battery sticker where I had read on here to look for it, but it was cold out, and I was excited, so I didn't press the issue when my Owings Mills, MD (brand new Tesla site that opened a month ago) sales team had no idea what I was talking about.

    Tonight, I looked again online at images to be sure I was seeking my sticker in the right place, and I just looked under my S behind the front right tire. I see now there is a little residue on the metal frame where the sticker should be, with no sticker. Should I be alarmed? Any suggestions? Should I make a big deal out of this? I wonder if it will be an issue for me in the future if the battery fails while under warranty. I'm thinking about emailing my sales specialist to get to the bottom of this. Or should I look elsewhere on the car? Are battery stickers sometimes placed elsewhere?

    To be clear, the battery seems to be in good shape. It showed 255 miles of range when I drove it off the lot when charged at 100%. I've since been charging to 85%, and it shows 218 rated miles. I have no idea what type of battery it is, but if I remember correctly from my prior readings, if it's the original battery it should be a B version.

    I have never looked at mine. Long warranty so what are you worried about.

    Bump. I'm assuming the crickets I'm hearing imply there is nothing to worry about, but does anyone else have a Model S that lacks a battery sticker near the front right wheel?

    @patrick40363 I'm not really worried about anything specific to my battery. I just know from reading prior posts that some people have had battery issues, and should that happen to me in the future, I wonder whether Tesla service will ask why my car lacks a sticker. I'm probably being unnecessarily paranoid about it. Mostly, I'm just curious which version of battery I have, I guess.

    Since you just took delivery of the CPO vehicle. Why don't you ASK the delivery specialist why your CPO is lacking a battery sticker.

    That sticker has some importance... It lets you know what generation pack you have in your car.

    In case anyone cares, my sales specialist says stickers are known to fall off (has anyone else heard of this?) and assured me it will have no effect on my battery warranty. </thread>
