    FSD Beta 10.12

    I heard the car will hover by this time next year... Free upgrade with paid FSD.

    Good job. You're supposed to have trust issues. Don't lose that feeling.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Thanks for this. I've seen a number of references to Robert Miles but I never watched his channel before. Today I watched a few; all were informative and thought-provoking. Very intellectual. Then I went outside and pulled weeds in the heat. I hope I'll be able to buy an AI robot that I can...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I think you should moderate your hopelessness. Your triple-digit .101 firmware indicates the normal "break-in firmware" situation. My car was in this status for nearly 2 months at the end of last year. Reports are that current new cars are getting out of the firmware purgatory somewhat...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    This illustrates the key question, which I think is difficult for us to answer based on user reports, is whether FSD is solving general capabilities or fitting to (even a very large set of) captured training cases. Let's say the Tesla data-capturing network (i.e. customer cars) expands greatly...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    A couple of years ago I was pulled over for this very thing, left turn followed by an immediate right into a filling station. I had a friendly discussion with the officer. I pointed out that there was another car turning immediately behind me who also turned wide (even though he didn't need to...

    FSD Beta 10.13

    If a normal civilian, pretty good driver, were deposited onto a race track with nothing but other professional NASCAR drivers, he would almost certainly cause an accident. If a NASCAR driver (a real one would never agree to this) were given a Plaid to drive on the interstate at 140 mph among...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    FSD is doing the legal thing there, but not the "normal driver" thing. Legally, you are always required to turn into the closest driving line (leftmost lane from a left turn, rightmost lane from a right turn), then safely signal and move over without creating any unsafe conditions yourself. But...

    Headlight stuck on after update today

    OK, thanks for that clarification. So far it seems these glitchy behavior reports are coming from cars that are a few years old and/or have undergone some computer upgrades. This is obviously not good in terms of release and regression testing, but I'm going to assume that the update is safer on...

    Tire protection from discount tire

    This is exactly my issue with the tire insurance. You have to purchase at least one additional tire unless you're very early in the life of the damaged tire (for some AWD vehicles, you really have to replace all four at the same time; I think this is not the case for Tesla). Of course if they...

    Headlight stuck on after update today

    To both of you: please let us know what year and model vehicle is experiencing these problems. I'm trying to decide whether to install the update or wait for more news. Edit: looking at older messages, I think @2BEnhanced has a 2016 MS or MX with updated MCU. @Dean Olds is a brand new member...

    Acceleration boost DOES NOT stay with vehicle (unless it is a private sale)

    I'm totally on board with the frustration, but realistically - this is software that Tesla owns. The fact that a specific instance of it has monetary value to them is no indication of its worth in the marketplace. If you have a license for Microsoft Office, is it worth anything further to...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    This has been a much-discussed issue within the user community. I don’t think Tesla has ever publicly acknowledged that there is any deficiency in the present camera coverage. "Overlapping 360 degree surround" coverage sounds good on the surface, but is not at all the same as optimal-viewpoint...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Tesla's goal is to not be geo-fenced. But I don't think there's any way to avoid that it will have to be geo-responsive. Behavior that is required in one region can immobilize you, get you a ticket or start a fight in another region. I think that as utonomous vehicles become commonplace, this...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    I was experiencing this problem when I posted my last message above. I tried to un-bold it several times before posting, but couldn't affect it on-screen. Apparently I ended up leaving it with Bold tags after all that, and now I can't edit the post anymore. Maybe a mod could un-bold it for...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    I feel strongly that the best solution for Chuck's left turn would be for FSD beta to turn right, get to the left lane and make a U-turn at the light. And to do this in general when such ill-advised left turns have been put in place by the local road authority.

    Charity bet #1: When will existing FSD buyers get FSD?

    That's right! Thinking hard about it is the fun!

    Matrix Headlights

    I would not pay any more attention to what this guy says to you. Model Y: As many others, I've been following this issue for a while. My MYLR does not have the Matrix projector lights, and I understood this would be the case a long time before taking delivery - even though it was something I...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    ... ... I started following the YouTube FSD beta community well before the wide access / safety score program, and I would disagree pretty strongly with the claim that they were deliberately skewed or filtered at that time. I'm speaking of Dirty Tesla, Frenchie, Chuck Cook, Rocco Speranza and...

    "Automatic Emergency Breaking Disabled", No Traffic Visualization, and no Autopilot

    What you're describing isn't right for sure. The only suggestion I would have before making an appointment with Tesla Service, is to perform a camera calibration. This should have happened on your initial drives but it's often suggested for otherwise inexplicable Autopilot problems. By the way...

    Issues with Autopilot

    Of course you are welcome to call Tesla but I would say it will be a waste of time. First, if you are talking about standard non-FSD Autopilot (TACC and Autosteer features), or even purchased-FSD Autopilot (that adds a few features), those are both on an older software code-base (or software...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Thanks for the clear reply, even though it isn't what I was hoping to hear. It's extremely important for them to get this right if they're going to attempt UPLs in moderate to heavy traffic.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Regarding the left turns: supposedly the new version will anticipate the upcoming traffic gap and begin to move for the turn opportunity, like a human driver does, without waiting too long. If done properly, this would be an excellent behavior - but it's different from the prior FSD beta...

    MY (5-seater) Rear Seat-Back Protectors

    I just purchased and installed these rear seat-back protectors for my MYLR: D1M Fit Tesla Model Y Rear Trunk Seats Back Mats Cover All Weather Seat Protector Pet Mat Pack of 3 I wrote a rather extensive review for the Amazon listing, so I won't repeat all of that here, just the 'TLDR': I like...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I think that having one's non-Teslaphile wife to be perfectly satisfied with FSD is a very high bar, possibly unachievable in our particular space time continuum. Or, at least I'm pretty sure we're a lot more than two weeks away from that... After just watching the Rob Maurer YouTube, I think...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I watched several of the videos completely through, including Dirty Tesla's. I have to say that it's more than normal incremental Improvement. I think his theme, repeated so much that he ended up apologizing for it, was that it feels much more natural in many of its basic driving and...

    Tesla NHTSA ADAS and ADS Data

    It looks to me that the right-hand column of this table itls not a conclusion reached, but rather hhat it's the category of Investigation into which the case was submitted for study. If someone claimed or even suggested that the car was running Autopilot, it would be put into that category for...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    He posted a rather sad YouTube video explaining things. He was on a road trip on the highway and a modified motorcycle or motor trike lost a wheel and careened out of control. I think it struck the rear quarter of his Tesla but it's not even clear the rider would have survived the event had...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    These all sound very encouraging, but as always we'll have to see how they work out for various people and locations. Our favorite UPL tester Chuck Cook has been out of the FSD beta action with his car in the shop after the very unfortunate accident he had (tragic situation but nothing to do...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I'm also curious to see if it knows not to do this in areas where it is not permitted. If the road and median design is not appropriately configured, then stopping at the median makes things more dangerous for everyone.

    Anyone had the roof tinted?

    I see this video and definitive-sounding conclusion pop up in nearly every thread about roof tint. And yes, as an engineer I'd love to believe in the meter data as presented. However, I got the roof tinted fairly dark with 3M Crystalline, along with various tints on the side and rear glass, and...

    The lesser of three evils

    My view is, plan a supercharger stop before you make the final leg to the airport so that you're not parking the car for several days with a low residual charge. That is the situation most vulnerable to an extremely inconvenient dead‐battery situation, in case you make a settings mistake or an...

    Digital Vision Safety

    One advantage is that the beam pattern can be very broad, like High beams but without blinding other road users. It's not a replacement for visible spectrum lighting but a reasonable enhancement.

    Autailers Floor Mats

    Thanks for the clarification. My Autailors mat set has the 1-piece cargo floor style (which I prefer for general use, and hasn't been a problem the couple of times i wanted to access the compartmenr underneath). I was happy with the idea that they finally started making something for the...

    Any Model Y with new projector headlights in the USA?

    It's clearly been happening but appears to have been a temporary action affecting production dates in the last week of April. There's a very active thread about it here.

    Well of course there's that. Why do you think he's already moving on the Edit Button? 10 minute edit window for you, 10 years for the big guy Anyway, rewriting history is well in vogue. He can call it the 2015 Project.

    I will gloss over your sarcasm because I don't think it befits the discussion. I'll make an attempt to put things on friendlier terms after I respond to the above. Regarding Natural Law, I would respectfully but unapologetically say that this is a confusion on your part. The first definition of...

    Debating adding FSD to existing order at $10K

    That is true, but if you buy the FSD with the car and/or clearly document the addition of FSD to your insurance company, it becomes part of the value of the car that needs to be replaced after an accident.

    Debating adding FSD to existing order at $10K

    To answer this I think we have to clarify what is meant by "transfer". FSD that you buy for your current car does not transfer to a different Tesla that you acquire or may already own. Many of us think that this is not a great policy, but it is the policy at this time, and Tesla has shown no...

    Debating adding FSD to existing order at $10K

    Compared to most others here, I'm not very experienced with NoA. But this is what I think I observed and I invite others to set me straight if needed: in standard paid-FSD Autopilot, you request a lane change by a simple full-push and release of the turn-signal stalk (the same action used to...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    Yes that's a great and relevant connection! I quoted him but I don't actually adhere to those teachings. But since I did tithe for FSD, maybe I should look to him for comfort. In my religious school, we were taught the Maimonedes principles of faith, among them patiently to await the Messiah...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    As I noted in my message, this is a very fundamental concept as proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence. It lies at the core of Western and particularly the American concept of rightful governance. To dispute the principle based on evidence of its historically routine violations, seems to...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    Well yes, a good one and that's the internet/TV-age conclusion you'd come to. But the moral/legal principal in question is ancient of course. I'm pretty sure that with some study you could go back to biblical, Greek and Roman, Chinese and Vedic philosophies. The best I could do on short notice...

    Debating adding FSD to existing order at $10K

    I'll add my vote that you should feel comfortable getting it if: You're fairly interested technically You can still get it for $10K (what a deal! 🙂) You don't think your life will be lesser for having spent the money, when you look back on it a year from now. I know it still falls short of the...

    Arizona Waiting Room

    The general rule is; expect the EDD to jump around quite a bit. Push out, pull in, possibly become very vague ("August-September") or disappear entirely. Also be prepared for them suddenly to give you a VIN with very little notice, so that you're scrambling to make plans or arrange financing...

    Freedom of speech is not granted as you said in the first sentence above, it is a natural human right that is, as you said in the second sentence below, affirmed and guaranteed. The amendments are largely an affirmation of the limits on a proper government, that it has no basis for infringing on...
