    Apologists say whaaaaaa? Please, continue disagreeing with literally everything I type. I've come to expect nothing more from you. I've been off for 18 months. I'm sure you'll be an adult next time I'm back.

    I took possession of mine 3 years ago w/EAP and FSD My bad. I presumed ppl on here could hold two or more threads concurrently. The ppl who ordered in 2017, paid in mid 2018. You know FULL SELF DRIVING means just that. Musk promised a car that could drive autonomously cross country. Clearly...

    Elsewhere I put a link to the Electek article where Tesla in a writing to, I thought it was to CA regulators rather than CA DMV, but that basically they were referring to it as city driving and that was all the FSD feature was going to be.

    Speaking of 0 other cars, why is it that auto park still only works if you want to park between 2 other cars, rather than find the end of the parking lot and park away from everybody. Have they ever actually finished a feature? Who wants to sandwich a >$60k car between two land yachts?

    Weren't you disagreeing with the premise? Maybe you were disagreeing on general principles. It feels like forever since I've been on here. I deleted the extraneous reports. I wasn't sure where I read it but, sure, I'll accept it was on here. I would have guessed I've been off for atleast a yr. I...

    I dont challenge that's not what I paid. I configured it June of 18 so that's presumably when the price was locked in. Back then EAP and FSD were, as you said optional extras. Frankly, I'd have to find the paperwork from 3 yrs ago. Thanks for the reality check!

    Did Tesla promise a full release by end of year? Well, actual beta quality code to all purchasers/subscribers get it by years end?

    I would hope they don't do that. For someone who 3+years ago paid $10k for FSD only to have their neighbor who paid $200 get it first? I can't see that playing well in Peoria!

    Actually I believe they've stopped calling it FSD Beta rather they call it in documentation nav on city streets. FSD is someone in Boston can say NAV to San Francisco and the car will. By looking at the YT videos, this thing is dangerous. Reading between the lines FSD will require HW4. It's...

    Or, start with those scoring 100 and work their way down until the additional count of alpha testers is met. Nav on Autopilot is beta, AutoSteer is beta, Nav on City Streets is not beta quality, it's more Alpha, using software engineering terminology, that has been released to some scant...

    The reality is, having the app will not affect one's admission into phase 2 Alpha testing. I suspect ppl know if they're a bad driver.

    But that is a point-in-time release google will not update it as one doesn't get it from Google. The question becomes why isn't Tesla submitting it to Google, or if they did why isn't Google posting it.

    Cruise Control / Autopilot unavailable after update?

    Update: We went out to dinner 6 hours after my return trip, described above. Initially display was as described above. Howsoever, once travelling, over the course of about 5-10 seconds all three icons reappeared. I did make an unreturned call to local SC describing issue. As a return customer...

    Cruise Control / Autopilot unavailable after update?

    I'm on a tablet and I assumed you meant 32.22. Upon spreading the screen, I see you typed 36.22. They historically add a, 1...2...3 suffix? So this is after the fsd button push end of last week? Just double checking, tx.

    I got that update Saturday. I installed it immediately and the car was fine. I had an appointment this morning, the ride in was fine. When I left it was raining, wipers didn't work until I said after activation of mic, "help wipers" but the it would shut off. I had only current speed displayed...

    Cost for second meter in CT

    Maybe we'll move there. Is that transmission and generation? In NE CT the combined charges are $0.2045/KWH. Over the last year I've averaged 280 KWH/mile so $57/mo on avg. We up north do have winter. I've seen it as low as 210kwh/mile in the spring and fall, no heat no AC.

    B-pillar cameras fogging up?

    Thanks! That was my point too. I paid an additional $9k (as I recall) for FSD/EAP, which that particular drive made extensive use of and NoA was unavailable for both legs. "It'll probably go away on it's own" is not a customer friendly answer. I just wanted to document it here. If it happens...

    B-pillar cameras fogging up?

    I was just told, via tweet, that it is normal for condensation to appear. How can the car possibly qualify for level 5 if, rain or below freezing temps disables NoA/AutoSteer? They are either sealed units or they aren't, heated or they aren't..right? This is on a 2018 Model 3.

    Left door pillar camera blocked or blinded

    I realize this is an old post but I had that problem yesterday, 1/21/2020. It happened on both 45 min legs of an appointment. I am almost positive the right camera was the culprit on the trip in, and the (definitely) left camera was the culprit on the trip home. It was a sunny day with temp...

    Elon Confirms that the FSD sneak peak is for car with HW3 only

    Would you explain that? Also, I was in the batch of initial purchasers of FSD that Musk said, due to dramatic pricing change, they would invite us into the NDA Early Access Program. Many of us have not heard boo since, except Musk said in a tweet "that is still the plan". That was likely more...

    Snippiness 2.0

    That actually kind of IS true. Yes, a person who hasn't purchased FSD on models prior to including HW3, CAN upgrade to HW3, however that upgrade is not available for purchase yet. Presumably once they've run the free upgrades of those who have purchased FSD they will make the upgrade available...

    That's precisely how I remember it as well. Given they are paying customers can they call up, order it, and effectively cut in line?

    I'd guess following Ben and Kim, he's the most popular Tesla YouTube guy. Ergo, my reference to his series name.

    Anyone got HW3 retrofit yet?

    I'm curious when Matt Schummer (Tech Talk) gets his. Although he may not have purchased fsd. Another interesting question is, as stated, upgrades were to go to FSD orderers, will that, in actuality, be the case?

    Anyone got HW3 retrofit yet?

    Honestly, I don't think that had anything to do with it. Some people think the more they press software Update->Advanced the quicker they get the OTA.

    Per Service Center, they won't take off the street requests. They are sent the hw that is attached to you so you'll get notified when to schedule an appointment.

    Do you have visualization yet. My understanding is/was even that required HW3. I looked and don't have the option to enable it. Long story short, I'm getting cranky now. HW 3 is imported from China, they are under tariff. Does tesla stop the model 3 line and do upgrades or put them in 2018...

    Pre-2019 HW3 upgrades

    Beg to differ. I have 40.50.1 and there is no option under autopilot or anywhere else. I suspect it is entirely likely. They've been shipping HW3 since spring 2019. Those with fsd and delivery in 2018 appear touched. HW3 come from China, there are tariffs involved. Do they put it in a 3 being...

    Well, it's not for the public as it requires HW3. I not only configured my car in 2018, I did so with fsd. Delivered in 2018. Soooooo, now I'm pissed.

    Anyone got HW3 retrofit yet?

    I was told they don't do off-the-street upgrades, you'll get notified when you turn comes.
