    Model S standard wheels - hubcaps ??

    Slipstream wheels I currently have look much better I think. Can’t believe Tesla uses such cheap looking wheels on a 90k car. I really hope they do something about it.

    New 2021 Model S Unveiled January 27, 2021

    Did Tesla get rid of air suspension from refreshed S? I think chrome delete makes the car look dull from outside, I liked the contrast of chrome trim especially on black model S.

    Model S - AP hands on steering wheel warning, audible vs. visual only

    Thanks for the info. Something doesn't seem right about warnings because last time I locked out of AP, I didn't get any audible warning, it should have done it on the 3rd warning at least. Also if car is sensing for certain amount of torque, Telsa can provide misleading/incorrect information...
