    Halla, Musaed. I'm pretty sure Tesla won't do that. You'll have to bring the cars back to an authorized country to service them. Also if you can take my dad for a ride in the P85D (he lives in Dubai) that would be greatly appreciated.

    I think this is going to be very very difficult for you. Not only do you need the "Tesla tech guy", you need him to have the proper diagnostic equipment, much of which will be proprietary to Tesla. You could contact Tesla directly to see if they would be willing to "lend" you a tech and equipment to do the work you're needing, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    May be this is a good opportunity for your dad to arrange a vacation over to where you live, so you can show him your Model S? :smile:

    Why have to go through all that trouble if there are some in the same city as him? He'll eventually see mine, but I want him to experience te car, and also experience insane/ludicrous mode.

    Isn't that just extended Ranger Service? :)

    85 to 90 upgrade probably requires special tools as well as parts, all of which might be difficult if not impossible to get through customs.

    I'm sure tesla won't do it. I heard of a guy that had his battery defective only after driving it twice in Dubai. He had to ship it back to where he bought it from.

    Agreed you have to bring them back to a service country to have work done by an Authorized service person
