yeah, also a new MCU1 is coming at some point to me under the recall. given what wk057 said about vampire charge here, I'm pretty skeptical of the utility of a MCU2 upgrade for me. I already bleed off 4 miles per day (if I'm lucky it's that low), and boosting that up more with the lack of sb power makes me really wonder about how much more it'll waste. Another thing I'd lose with MCU2 is my IC display. I use a Tinklabuddy to make it display the AP1 UI (or switch back and forth as I please to the old school UI) in addition to diplaying battery temps on my non Ludi car, which doesn't work with MCU2.MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade is $1,500.
It's true that all of that would be cheaper than a new car, even if it ends up costing half what this vehicle is actually worth.Battery replacement is what.... 12k usd for the model S and with another 2500 usd charger upgrade and another 2500 usd for an mcu upgrade may give you essentially a new car if you dont need fancy new tech features?
Basically, this whole thread has me worried how long this battery will last after this year, and if I should go through the slog of changing this car out. (I'm very lazy)
