    Model S Upgraded to HW3, MCU2 Beta Question

    It might be too early for this question, but I was reading the patch notes for FSD beta and I noticed a heavy emphasis on the driver monitoring camera. Us older S drivers, do not have a driver monitoring camera, even after the HW3 MCU2 upgrade. How does the FSD beta function without that...

    FSD Frustration

    I think right now you are training the Tesla Insurance NN. the thing when insurance is widely released, will give you an accurate quote, based on driver behavior patterns.

    FSD Frustration

    Welcome to the club. One of my points is tesla should keep the promise that the cars we bought have the hardware necessary for FSD. If they don't then Tesla will retrofit us. If MCU1 is sufficient, then there should be FSD code that is written for it and tested. There should be a beta version...

    FSD Frustration

    This is a rant. Feel free to pass by. i have a 2017 S, HW3, MCU1, HW2Cameras. I'm on software 2020,48,37.6. I bought FSD when I bought the car. I wish there some concept of loyalty to the older customers. I've been waiting a long time. all these M3 and MY's get the beta button, and I don't...

    Beta Eligible?

    Will the cabin camera be a requirement? My car is RCCC camera, mcu1, hw3. So my model s has no cabin camera, but otherwise should be FSD eligible as I got the HW3 upgrade from the 2.0 it came with. Any thoughts on if the cabin camera will be required? Currently on software 2020,48.37.4.

    Completed sales invoice?

    I am attempting to budget out for all the delivery and registration type details that go with the purchase. Is there anyone who is willing to post their completed sales invoice. Preferable from Florida so I can get the best idea of the "closing costs" Thank you

    Need a picture for Research

    Can anyone get a picture of the Front trunk on the new Model S 60, RWD with the premium package. I would like to see how much the Bio-weapon option takes up of the front trunk. Also, if anyone has a base version for a comparison Pic, Please. Thank You

    The new 60

    I want to ask the techies of the group the following..... If the new 60 is actually a software limited 75 pack, would it supercharge at the same rate as a 75 pack? also if i were to 100% charge it, wouldn't that only be somewhere between 80-90% of the packs total capacity and there for not...

    Tesla Model S CPO Website - Now Live

    My CPO contact told me about the updated inventory. I told him I was waiting for cars with autopilot. He said he will keep an eye out, but there was no autopilot cars in the currently released batch.

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    The job is not a done deal, however I know my specialty. It is more likely to occur in Miami than in Palm Beach. It was a hypothetical question with a purpose. We also have a Hybrid Highlander with 3rd row seating. Very Tanky

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    This is a primary reason for the car. I'm a poster child for the need of autopilot. 1. to maintain my sanity commuting. 2. My parents are getting older and live 1/2 a country away. Driving 1600 miles might be a bit easier if *someone* else was driving most of the way. At the same time it seems...

    Indeed I did, I read the article you linked. I didn't have any further questions at this time, but I do appreciate your offer. I'll keep you updated, and be I'll be sure to consult with you. Thanks

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    I want to thank you all for your advice, both relating to the car and life. For the first part if I get the job, I will most likely drive the Prius until it breaks down or I go nuts which ever occurs first. I will probably establish an account and try to bank the money difference from the old...

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    I don't believe it is a fund. I also don't believe in leaving cash, laying around doing "nothing"

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    Yes, The cash for the immediate emergency when no other form of currency is accepted then and there. My true emergency fund is in the 100k of equity I can access if necessary. I'm not opposed to used, or a "new" service loaner. In fact my original goal was an 85 with auto pilot. The goal was to...

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    The commute is approximately 75 miles each way, so the entire trip can be easily made on an 80-90% charge. Electricity is reasonably cheap in S.Fl .11/KW. I have started doing the numbers, but as always it is all in the unknown variables. Gas is <$2, but will it stay there, as this will be the...

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    My wife thinks its a lot to spend on a car, but if I say we need it, then we need it. My wife thinks motorcycles cause instant death. I tell her i'm well insured, but bless her heart she'd rather have me than the money. I have a paid for prius, I have a nissan leaf, which is a lease due back...

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    I hear you on that, but I need to keep the question on the transportation side of it. It is not a question of if I will take the job or not if offered. I will take the job if offered as my current job will cease to exist on 7/1. The question becomes, do the commute in a Prius or a Tesla. Am I...

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    unfortunately, I think the focus has shifted from my intended target. I wished to focus on the car buying portion of the decision. Not the should I take the job question. It basically comes down to, my current job will not be available any longer.

    My Wife does not work outside the home. So 125k will represent out total income. We have 3 kids, 7,4,and 7 months.

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    Max, The opportunity in question would give me a salary at $125K per year. 60% of that would be $75k or the approximate cost of a Model S 70. To answer the other half of your equation. Financing on 75K would be about $1,100 per month, where gross monthly salary of 125k would be about $10k per...

    A Bad Idea, Whose Time May have Come

    Hello good people of the Tesla Motor's Club. I have a story to tell you. Now I know, the internet is not known to be very tolerant of long stories. I will provide a TL;DR at the end, but I just jumping to it will remove the emotional justification I have for my idea. So, if you feel that...

    Dreams and Electric Sheep

    This may be an off topic kind of post so please bear with me. I have dreamed of owning a model s, but unfortunately it doesn't look like a possibility for me. I have always been a fan of new technology, I was one of the early members of Priuschat way back. It goes to my question now of keeping...
