While I wait patiently for my MS to arrive, been cleaning the garage and I had to move my almost 20 year old tool chest to accommodate the HPWC install. Tool chest has a myriad collection of your standard wrenches and drivers with a few odds and ends specialty tools for my bimmers/rovers of past.
Then it got me thinking... I wonder how many Tesla owners wrench (or used to) on your own car(s)? Or is an MS simply a high-tech appliance that takes your commute to a different level? If you are/were, do you miss it? Since the Tesla pretty much has a big dynamo for a motor, and I guess you need an electrical degree to even troubleshoot an issue, does it bother you at all that every little thing that may come up wrong, you have to run to the service center?
I've always done my own oil changes, brakes, and basic general maintenance and I think it's going to be odd with the MS not needing much tinkering from a shade tree mechanic wannabe. I've always found it therapeutic to tinker on anything mechanical so this is a big change for me. I do still have a couple of ICE vehicles (don't stone me LOL), but they'll be relegated to Sunday drivers (I think).
