    Being that our Model S is so paperless and digital, is there a place where we can log service/maintenance on the car as the miles go by?


    I just did my own tire rotation at 5k, and typically on my past ICE cars, I'd open the "service manual" and log the work done.


    Is there a clean digital place for us to do this?

    No way to do that in the S...yet. I think Elon has said that in the future Tesla will allow third party apps to be installed and what you describe sound like a niche that an app could fill.

    FWIW, I keep a spreadsheet to log various things with the car.

    things like:
    - firmware updates - date / mileage / major and minor versions
    - monthly / lifetime energy use (from trip meter readings)
    - range charge log - date, ending rated miles displayed
    - road trip summaries -- to/from and rated miles used
    - a supercharging log (starting / ending rated miles and duration)
    - a vampire loss log -- starting and ending rated miles. Only use this when parked for more than a couple days at the airport...
    - service summary -- date, mileage, what it was in for, etc...

    I do that too :cool:

    It really doesn't take much time to keep updated. I'll just snap a pick of the dash, or use VT logs to update it when needed. Couple min here and there...

    Anyone who has a good format that you've worked out be prepared to post a (blank) spreadsheet?

    when I get my car (less than 2 weeks) I'd like to start a log from day 1 and it would be great not to have to work out all the things I wish I'd recorded and not realised.
