    NIO Debuts New ET5 Electric Sedan Rival To Tesla Model 3

    Battery swapping is real. Leasing the battery is a massive price advantage NIO can offer over Tesla and other OEMs. Watch out when they get the infrastructure built-out here and in Europe.

    Canada’s Project Arrow EV To Be Larger Than Tesla Model Y

    This is a good way of upgrading industry, technology, and training people. Auto parts manufacturers all understand that they need to get heavily into vehicle electrification or they're going to be left behind.

    Do you think anything you write or any evidence you present will make that (moderator exit) user admit he's wrong? It's like it's his job and he's getting paid to spout FUD here non-stop.

    Poll : Which is better - FSD Beta 10.8 vs 10.6.1 / 10.5

    I don't have much time or many miles on 10.8. Some quick comments-- I haven't had it brake on me when vehicles are merging from the right on freeways and surface streets. That was super annoying and could cause an accident (side swiping & rear ended) vs avoiding. Driver's set speed still...

    Auto Wipers Improved with V.11?

    I think FSDbeta forces auto wipers. It's been raining here for the past week or so and it's been nearly perfect. I only used the manual mode before this.

    AutoWipers Still dont work well on 2021 Model Y

    I have FSDbeta and I think it forces the auto wiper mode. I only used the manual mode prior. It's been raining on and off for the past week or so and auto wipers are working great.

    Hol Update suggestion; Move blind-spot monitor to top of screen

    I'm a bit indifferent on this. I have FSD and use the lane switching function all the time. I still check my mirrors and over my shoulder before signalling and initiating. This new feature is literally making people look at the wrong spot.

    Nobody mentions that the acceleration boost is too much power for the stock suspension of the non-performance model

    Sways back and forth, like it doesn't have any traction control? Yeah, sure...... :rolleyes: Also, bald tires on a car that goes 0-60 in ~4s is never good. I've had 'Boost for 16+ months and there's no swaying. The LR suspension is fine. The rear squats and front seems to lift a bit when...

    Is There Anything Odd About MY Front Suspension That My Normal Mechanic Can't Handle

    Any time you make an appointment with your SC they'll charge you, even for warranty work. Tesla will waive any charges if your new car needed it and they actually perform real work. A Tesla is a car and alignments aren't anything special.

    Just more non-sense and gibberish from you. Show me the evidence. NHTSA recovered the logs from a burnt-out MS in Texas which wound up clearing Tesla's AP. Doing that should be easy in this case. OP has an extremely valuable vehicle. Here's my advice for OP: 1) OP should auction his...

    Nothing is going to be perfect. FSD will never be done and it'll be updated constantly. 1, 6) Liability. I think the driver should always have precedence. Car's internal dynamic control is probably better at recovering if the driver let go and allowed it to take over. 4) This has never...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    All of a sudden, FSDbeta doing well is no big deal. I doubt this has been repeated by other ADAS systems and Tesla is the last in line to do this. No instances of FSDbeta spontaneously going into the opposite lane after all of those turns. He went both ways, as well.

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    Yup. If FSDbeta caught you eyeballing the nav too long or playing with your phone then wiggling the steering wheel won't make the nag go away. You need to pay attention for a while. I rest my left arm on the steering wheel so I don't get the nag, but FSDbeta will hit me with a warning when it...

    Mercedes-Benz receives world's first internationally valid system approval for conditionally automated driving

    I've been using AP/FSD on freeways every time I drive and normally have it set for ~75 mph. When I tried to increase my safety score, I did a ~200 mile drive on Bay Area freeways mostly on AP/FSD. I wound up with 99% and eventually got admitted to FSDbeta.

    CyberTruck seen on Test Track in Fremont

    Even after the CT goes into production, there'll probably be dozens of changes in the first year. Say 1 or 2 a month. I got my MY in late June 2020. Other than the exterior, it's almost a completely different car 18+ months later.

    Mercedes-Benz receives world's first internationally valid system approval for conditionally automated driving

    Here's Bjorn from a recent test drive around Frankfurt in wet conditions during rush hour (~5:50pm). I don't think Bjorn went slower than 60 kph/37 mph on the freeway. He hit 180 kph on the way back. 101S at San Tomas (before 880) gets congested around 4pm. Mercedes' system might be useful...
