    Blind spot hardware changes pending?

    Blind Spot Detection Needs Drastic Improvement Completely agree that the detector should show up either yellow or orange and much bigger. If one is using navigation, the map to the left of the speedometer completely obliterates the white arc. On my P85D, about 50% of the time I get no...

    Next-gen REAR seats no longer available for new orders, please post feedback on yours

    Did you trade in your P85 to Tesla? I'm about ready to trade my S85 12/26/2012 and was pretty disappointed at the low value as the car has every option other than P.

    Getting a car wash

    NO, you do not need to stay in the car, simply leave the key fob in the car. You might consider raising the vehicle assuming you have air suspension as my car scraped on something once.

    Lack of buttons - annoying?

    Model S locks itself. Simply opening one door unlocks all the others. Until you've tried it, don't complain. Button-less is the only way to go!

    Missing features not really missed…

    Completely agree with Ames with exception of cooled seats. My MB S550's massage seats quit one day with a very loud pop, must have blown an air hose. My dealer only wanted $2,500 to make repairs. It would be nice to have memory for the passenger seat settings.

    Supercharging Progress

    Good work HansK. How did you get such detailed information? The Buellton Supercharger station will make our annual "Sideways" tour of Santa Barbara County wineries much easier.

    Please don't do (better place method) battery swap stations, it's a stupid idea

    100% agree with all you have said. I too would not trade my well cared for battery for one of unknown provenance.
