    Model S Software/Firmware wishlist

    Numerous Bluetooth bugs too. Like today, it’s showing connected with my phone. My wife makes a call on her iPhone, dailed from her phone and using the iPhone’s transducers. But the car music playback stops and the right scroll wheel can control her call. But it’s a call on her iPhone. The...

    Model S Software/Firmware wishlist

    I’d just like the flaky MCU to work. It’s crap. And I’m losing my patience with it. Been waiting 6 years for the most basic media player bugs to be fixed.

    Spotify audio quality?

    I found the Spotify sound in the Tesla to be pretty poor. It's harsh and rough sounding. Don't know how better to describe it but mostly not clear in complex parts of the music. I got the 30 day free trial.. But the sound combined with really buggy implementation in the Tesla, I mean albums...

    After being away from my MS for a week, strange residue on interior hard plastics.

    It's that time of year again. Spring and the oily residue reappears like clockwork. BTW it is not mold.

    Model 3 Notchback Trunk - Deal-Killer?

    Maybe the back seats fold down and there is a pass through. My BMW 3 series sedan does that. That and hard points for a roof rack system. But I wonder how you mount a roof rack on that all glass roof.

    Model 3 Notchback Trunk - Deal-Killer?

    I'd have preferred a hatchback, but it still has a frunk, right? Sow what's the problem?

    Bolt has FWD and Model 3 does not.

    I've been driving a RWD BMW 323i for 10 years in Alberta and Ontario for the last 8. With good snows on all fours, and its DSC, or ASC or whatever it is called it is great in snow. No problem at all. My MS is classic RWD, and I'm glad Model 3 is going to be available as RWD. I reserved...

    Auto Open Risk, Or is it just me?

    Actually, I don't have this feature, although it is in the release notes. Does anyone know if it works with classic S? Or is it not available in Canada?

    Return to Singapore

    QED? LOL.. you're really making a big leap here from Tesla's statement to "Tesla used R101" The fact is, Tesla does not state that anywhere. UNECE R101 counts losses not related to driving over the course of the test. 181 Wh/km is just the energy usage of the car from its battery, like...

    Return to Singapore

    I know how it is measured. But the 181 Wh/km consumption in Tesla's statement is not per UNECE R101. Where do you see that Tesla said it is?

    Return to Singapore

    Yes exactly, and 181 Wh/km does not, it's just what the car uses while driving.

    Return to Singapore

    IngTH is correct. 181 Wh/km is only the power the car uses from its battery, while driving. It does not count charging losses, vampire losses, and balancing losses all of which also contribute to CO2 emissions. So for sure the correct figure is higher than 181. I don't know why Tesla...

    Ontario EV incentives upped to $14K... and decreased to $3k for Tesla

    The modified incentive program is not intended to "hurt " Tesla.. it's intended to encourage the mass market cars. - to actually further Tesla's stated (but so far not observed cause), the mass market adoption of electric vehicles. Tesla should interpret this as a clue to get on with the...

    Classic Model S: Toy car?

    I don't like it. I want to see the battery meter and remaining rated range. I liked the old GUI a lot. I don't see the purpose of monitoring the brake lights. I think the brake lights know when to come on based on more than just lifting the accelerator.

    Firmware 7.1 - For Classic Model S

    I can't say I've noticed this at all.
