    I've changed out the stock 19" wheels to 21" Turbine grey wheels and I could have sworn that I've seen pictures of the display in cars that came stock with the 21" as reflecting that correctly in the graphics.

    Obviously not a huge deal but cool if it's possible somehow?

    You talking about in car dash and cid display? If OEM, it's automatic. Not sure how to adapt for aftermarket.
    Good question. SvC?

    When did you swap? It'd be cool if via tpms or something, the car sensed the change and voila, the new display. The build was accurately reflected on everything graphic since order confirm.....mytesla docs, email updates etc. the attention to detail was noticeable.

    If you swapped to those beauty 21s, it'll bug the $heep out of you seeing 19s on the display until updated.
    Send an email to service and ask how....maybe SvC can do it since your driving oem.

    The crazy thing is, after I swapped, the car DID sense the new wheels and I got a display on the screen asking me to select if the new wheels are 19" or 21". I selected 21", it calibrated the TPMS sensors, but the car graphics did not change.

    I'll definitely ask the service center. Good excuse to go in, maybe I can come out of there with new HW2 firmware. :D

    Nah keep the AP2 but ditch the displayed 19s and you'll be one happy hxguy.

    Yes, service center can do it when the car is in. They call it the "avatar".

    I got my avatar changed when I powder coated my 19 cyclones black. They sold grey cyclones OEM for a period in Europe and they changed my avatar to reflect this. While my new avatar doesn't show true black wheels the dark grey are close enough. Looks so cool. Technology is wonderful.

    I see you're in Scottsdale, did you go to the Service Center off Hayden? And did you go,for that specific reason or you went for some other service and asked them to do that as well while there?

    I went to Hayden. For that specific reason only. Took about 30 minutes.

    Done! The Service Center took care of it in about 10 minutes, didn't even have to pull the car around the back, just did it in the parking lot. I love the casual atmosphere at the Tesla Service Centers...nothing like a traditional service center where you're filling this out and being shuffled from one person to another.

    Anything special to ask for? My SC was unaware of how to change it when I asked recently.
