Can radio communications be fully disabled in Tesla vehicles like the Model S ?

I guess this question has two parts: software disablement and hardware disablement as follows:

(1) Software disablement. Are you able to "turn off" any and all radio transmissions that the car might try to make using the dash control panel? How reliable is that deactivation?

(2) Hardware disablement. Computers can have WiFi and other radio capabilities either on a pluggable board, or built in to the motherboard. In the Tesla's case, is it easy to find and remove such modules, thus totally deactivating radio communications from the car, or are the modules built in to the motherboard, or otherwise hidden or hard to remove?
