    Why 2 different "hold the wheel" Nag warning types?

    @TX_M3P+ Never happens AFTER the normal Blue alert. Always displays as the first alert. @ChrisH, The B alert, when it happens is never facing anything strange. 3 lane interstate, no construction, no special traffic conditions. Just where I would expect a normal Blue Alert. @MacDon, Again...

    Why 2 different "hold the wheel" Nag warning types?

    Not a complaint but just some questions. My experience: I always hold the wheel under tension (maybe sometimes not enough). The only time I completely release the wheel is to get a drink or something like that. My question/concern is that I get 2 different types of warnings: A: The normal...

    Volume on Tesla Model 3. Why no gradual rise?

    After a phone call, when the audio unmutes, it is generally a huge audio spike, that while probably won't harm the speakers, it is certainly not good for my ears or the surprised passengers. I would like a ramped unmute, maybe 250-500ms (1/4 - 1/2 sec)

    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.2 - FSD AutoSteer Stop Sign Warning and Adjacent Lane Speeds

    I have a question for discussion. What is the purpose of having the traffic light and stop sign "warning" as opposed to simply showing us the stop sign or light when they are detected? Now we have people attempting to go thru red lights and stop signs to "test" this feature. Dangerous for...

    Is there a search function in the Spotify App?

    I have not been able to locate a search function within the Spotify app for the Model 3. Is there any way, from within the Spotify app to search for an artist, song title, etc?

    Please fix the curb rash risk on Model Y !

    Showing the wheel bands from AO. Many color options. The only time I hit the curb (rear passenger wheel) the wheel band was damaged and saved the wheel from more severe damage. SO ugly or not (YMMV) I vote for the wheel bands, until the tire size changes.

    And I was wrong. My sunspot returned today. I guess it just took the day off yesterday, even though it was a sunny day. Those wacky Teslas :)

    2019.20.4.4 - Dancing remains - Sunspot retired

    The subject says it all. The dancing continues, but the "specular highlight" (White dot) that was supposed to represent the reflection of the sun on the rear window, is gone. Hopefully some bugs got fixed along the way. Keep those OTAs comin' Love the car!
