    west los angeles body shop SELF-PAID

    unfortunately, my hitech car decided not to alert me to a low concrete barrier as I backed out and thus ended up hitting my front and front-side badly (also the light). probably $3k to $5k in damage. I don't understand why a hi-tech car with 359 cameras on it could neither alert me nor stop...

    Paint repair kits

    The Tesla kit is about $60 (pbcw white for me). Aftermarket kits seem to be about half this much. My repair needs are somewhat modest, too. Is the Tesla kit worth it? Or are the aftermarket ones as good? Any experiences?

    Out of curiosity, what do you hate about your Tesla?

    audio system forgets where it was, both previous source/track source and location within it. really bad for listening to long podcasts, switching briefly to the news, and then switching back.

    So, when is APv2 going to be noticeably better than APv1? Or is it already?

    I am not happy with AP2, either. I purchased my S [and ordered a 3] because I care about AP. With better hardware and software upgrades, I have hope. I only wish (1) the AP could hold the lane on Sunset drive reliably [which, given how many Teslas are driving within lane on sunset every day...

    does tesla engineering have a suggestion box? for example, I want to suggest adding a "record and learn my daily route" feature, where my car would record my commute. after I have driven it a few times, presumably the autopilot would learn where the street lane dividers, etc., are., by...

    New Car Without New Software?

    I just received my Tesla Model S. To my surprise, it is running v 8.0, 2.50.180, which has no autosteering etc. (or else something else is broken). Is this normal? I tried to ask my delivery person to tell me when I would/could get the latest software update, but she said she didn't know...
