    I wanted to check with other "low serial number" owners on a problem I recently confirmed has been fixed.

    I took delivery in March 2013 (SN: ...4187):
    - listening to radio, cell phone (charging or not) and sitting in storage bin area under stereo or on floor in carpeted channel
    - car exhibits classic poor shielding on amp when cell phone goes into high power/data mode (you can hear the RF interference)
    - had a loaner with SN 114xx - problem didn't exist

    So - pretty clear it's a bug that was fixed... but sure it's something Tesla is going to be willing to fix given the cost of the part...

    Any other comments before I take it to my service center?

    thx! Rob

    The cubby underneath the screen has long been acknowledged as a "dead zone".

    So - this isn't about cell reception, it's about your cell phone causing audible (and very annoying) noise over the speakers in the car when the volume is anything except OFF :-\

    Here's a bit more info on what I'm talking about:

    No other low-serial numbers can confirm? I was... surprised? Annoyed? When I found my loaner didn't have the problem...

    thx! Rob
