GypsyR Congratulations!  Your peers have given you enough reputation to put you into the fist level!

Looks like they're taking the magic check engine light scanners that tell mechanics everything they need to know to repair a vehicle to the next level.

More like OnStar on Steroids, a lot of collected data and math going into that!

Tesla has put out its parts catalog on line https://epc.teslamotors.com/#/login Although some parts are restricted to authorized repair facilities.

One of the better sources of info on repairing Tesla in the aftermarket that I've found is the Rich Rebiulds You tube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfV...8KJADuZT2ct4SA A bit unorthodox and shade tree maybe but still it shows what it's like dealing with Tesla for parts and programming.

The interview with Mother Board is really telling of what it takes to deal with Tesla s authoritarian rule over its products https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuAMczraBIM

All in all good information and there are some good tips on where to find aftermarket and used parts in the videos as well as aftermarket EV shops. Thumbs up to Rich for his efforts.
