    New button to enable FSD Beta download?

    But there are still great features in the FSD suite that have advanced in recent years: the old Enhanced Autopilot, then Nav on AP, first with then without stalk confirmation, Summon then Smart Summon. There has been steady progress from my perspective. City Streets is already here (testing) and...

    OFFICIAL BUTTON WATCH

    I don’t think it’s dangerous at all. It never overrides driver will. Check out Whole Mars Twitter feed of fsdbeta videos. He has some of the best concise videos out there, along with multiple other tester videos since October, ones with longer drives with zero interventions. The successes still...

    Aero Wheel Cap Kit

    Yes, I was referring specifically to scratching up the edge of the rims.

    Irish pub! Gosh, now that I hear that, that’s about one of the best analogies. I do miss my pub and my mates. 🥳🍺

    @Spuzzz, good to read you again. I’m trying to figure the best way to monitor new M3 content and stay engaged, especially hoping to see more familiar friends from the forums. @EVRiders suggestion of What’s New is good, and I filter that for posts I’ve participated in to help stay engaged. I...

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    Annnnnd the button maybe next month with V9. Lol. I can wait, I guess. 😎

    As have the testers themselves through every iteration for the last 5 months.

    Before requesting service, try (1) a window recalibration: recalibrate window by holding down window button for 5 secs after window has rolled down then do the same thing holding the button up after its rolled up; (2) perform a car reboot and let it sit/sleep overnight. See what happens next day.

    Is there a DIY fix for water in the B Pillar Cameras

    @malou, that may be, mine is a mid 2018, and the SB was for these earlier vins. Didn’t realize they perm removed the gasket.

    no button for 8.3....perhaps for beta V9 in April. Maybe? 😜 Yep, I’m a triggered FSDer.

    Which vaccine did you get?

    @daniel, yes, lots of natural poisons out there that will kill you. Natural does not equal better for you. So a question for you, when you say “We have enough information right now to know, categorically, that the risk of any long-term side effect of the vaccine is a minuscule fraction...”. How...

    Beta is "Dangerous"?

    @Tam, well said. Yes, that road and track article along with other similar ones this past week or two, are click bait misrepresenting the intentions of recent fsdbeta 8.2 videos. The recent tester videos that have shown some of the challenges in the latest SW have been seized upon by EV (or...

    FSD City release date keeps getting pushed?

    FYI, that series of unprotected left turns was well done, great drone angle. That footage was a mix of successes and fails, and it’s exactly what you have to do as a tester, give Tesla regular feedback on the good and the bad. If video footage like that makes you nervous, you shouldn’t accept...

    FSD City release date keeps getting pushed?

    Left turns seemed better on prior versions. Something got set back with 8.2. I’m sure 8.3 will be better. Yeah, v9 should be real good.
  15. M3phan

    Which vaccine did you get?

    Oh I agree, the issue is more it’s virality than its fatality. I was clarifying that we (as many say) follow the science, and realize calling it “deadly” isn’t the angle to take. But we also now have much better therapeutics to treat you if you catch it. Fewer people are thrown onto respirators...
  16. M3phan

    Which vaccine did you get?

    In the United States, it’s not “deadly” for the overwhelming majority of those who catch it. Fatality rate currently at 1.82%. Said another way, 98.18% of people who contract Covid-19 recover. From the CDC website as of today: Total cases in the United States 29,552,459 Total deaths in the...

    Is there a DIY fix for water in the B Pillar Cameras

    There’s a well-known service bulletin for this, Tesla remedied this via mobile tech in 10 minutes on both of my B pillars under warranty; it involves removing a foamy gasket in that camera housing to allow better air circulation thus minimizing potential for condensation. Tesla will take care...

    Got my Model 3 today: some noob questions

    Doesn’t make sense to me… Model 3 owner since mid 2018, and I’ve never had my cameras give an error message of blocked during night driving. Have you done a reboot?

    “Constant misrepresentation”? In other words, nonstop lying? Well that’s a bit over the top, isn’t it? A leader’s aspirational vision and goal setting off of that is not lying at worst nor naive at best. Savvy investors know what they’re buying.

    Not really. This is based on hard data from the last 5 months.

    New button to enable FSD Beta download?

    If I recall correctly, it was Elon who said they released smart Summon when they did, developing it before NAV on city streets, because of the unpredictability of parking lots versus relative predictability of city streets. But yeah, people are people, and technically any situation could be...
  22. M3phan

    New button to enable FSD Beta download?

    Big difference between smart Summon and fsdbeta city streets. Smart Summon is tackling one of the most difficult edge cases around, parking lots. This has been acknowledged. On a scale of super difficult to relatively easy, smart Summon would be on the super difficult end, NAV on a P on freeways...

    FSD City release date keeps getting pushed?

    There is a variety of definition here of “FSD” and of resulting expectations for that definition. Myself, I’m happy to receive the beta button for City Streets Nav here in a few days. Not expecting “level 5”, just the stuff I currently see being tested. That would make me smile.

    Tesla vs. semi crash reported 03.11.21

    As was mentioned further up the thread, police have already determined autopilot was not engaged. Another case sadly of driver error.

    Sorry for double post, phone got page hung up. That is the first curbing I’ve seen on the dozens of fsdbeta videos out there. Keep your eyes open kiddos.

    V11 is going to be HUGE!

    Elon “8.3...end of next week”, ~this Friday-Sun. I think that’s with “the button.” Fsdbeta v9, that’s in April.

    Report of widespread additions to EAP (early access program)

    It’s the invite to the broader Early Access Program, not specifically the fsdbeta testing group.
  31. M3phan

    Report of widespread additions to EAP (early access program)

    That email is the confirmation that the car has joined the EAP program, not that it has received any beta SW to test, including fsdbeta. This seems different than what Elon tweeted re “the button.” That didn’t seem tied to EAP only, rather to those with FSD who want to download that SW.

    Aero Wheel Cap Kit

    Yeah not a fan of the new one piece lug cover. Prefer my center cap with 5 lug covers. Cleaner looking to me.
  34. M3phan

    Aero Wheel Cap Kit

    I don't understand the appeal of these "caps". They don't provide any aero efficiency advantages nor do they look better than just leaving the lug nuts exposed... 1) the Aeros give negligible extra range. Some say an extra 10%, others only 4%...not an issue for me so off they come. 2) they...

    The gap you see between the side windows and the B pillar glass is normal. Yes it is slightly wider than you would expect but it’s all good. No worries.

    OFFICIAL BUTTON WATCH

    How I’m interpreting it: Added 2000 to 8.2 beta (2x from the 1000), 10x added to 8.3 via “the button”, the big update (beta version 9) in April.

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

    Unless a ton of people with HW3 are on EA, or are knighted, we are going to have to upgrade a bunch of EA folks currently on HW2.5 to properly test FSD over several weeks.
