    Keep BMW X7 or take delivery of 2022 X?

    If you really love the bmw and you can sell your current x7 with minimal to no loss then I would do that and take delivery of the x then put an order in for the 2023 model specced exactly like you currently have. Your model will be dated by the end of the year when the new split headlight design...

    you have all the moving parts... just no motors. do you also climb through the trunk to avoid using the falcon wing doors?

    well also all the plaid motors are carbon sleeved so it has that crazy flat power curve at any mph vs the long range power drops off at higher speeds. the 60-130mph times from long range to plaid is cut in about half. Its a cool feat of engineering. Also you get that plaid badge that sends...

    No one knows it could be next month it could be 2 years from now.

    they already updated the tail lights? I doubt they’re creating a brand new tail light anytime soon when they just made a new one with C shaped brake lights, separated turn signals and a new charge port. Anyway wait for the new night vision windshield, puts matrix lights to shame.

    no one "needs" them, but once you get used to say like LED headlamps, its hard to go back to halogen lamps. Same could be said about very smart matrix leds if they work properly and can track every object (highly reflective signs that could shine back at you) and car/ pedestrian to bend the...

    Honestly... given the way auto highbeams still work after however many years, i would think the matrix functionality is going to be a little bit away.

    could be possible, matrix functionality exists with reflector headlights in other auto manufactures. it all started with the A8 back in 2013 doesnt seem likely though since they're using samsung pixcell which is designed to be used in a single projector housing...

    Good to know so if you just set AP at like 75mph in plaid mode, itll consumer the same amount as if it was in chill mode correct? ie no extra power being used for motor cooling / battery heating?

    Actually the EPA ev range rating is a bit of a racket and honestly sounds corrupt. Like forcing manufactures to pay them extra to get the 5 cycle test rating or else good luck trying to sell your ev with the lower cycle rating. I haven’t come across a good reason why the EPA even has two...

    Plaid is completely overkill and I’m trying to justify it somehow. It was about a $15k difference when I went for it. I’m trying to cut back on coffee so I think I can substitute it with a jab or two of the accelerator in the morning commute instead. $5 coffee 5 days a week adds up to about...

    Are they different tires? Had no idea thought the cyber stream wheels had the same tires on both. I decided to go for the plaid mainly because the range didn’t seem like a major trade off. Configuring them the same with the 6 seat and 20s, it’s a 15 mile range difference so not something I’d...

    Any competitors close to Tesla Autopilot?

    hyundai ioniq 5 has a pretty nice lane keep that does lane changes. Rivians steering wheel is capacitive so it just needs to feel your finger near it without needing to put torque pressure on the wheel which is pretty nice. For lane centering and adaptive cruise, most of them are comparable.

    blame the EPA for that.. why they offer 2 separate tests for EV range testing is beyond me. Everyone should be standardized on a singular test but manufactures can pay more for the EPA extended cycle testing to eek out more rated range. Not many opt for that and just choose the fewer cycle test...

    No its the same issue. FSD wont fix phantom braking but beta releases may get a "fixed" iteration quicker that will trickle down to basic autopilot. Hopefully it gets better over time, but tesla has been known to release regressive iterations that make it worse. My advice, find a release that...

    Don’t think you can switch between models. You may be able to switch from lr to plaid or vice versa. I was still able to edit my design on my X order and switch stuff around at the old pricing but I locked it in fully by completing my profile today. Guess it’s a waiting game now.

    If it has the new door it should have the new tail lights that separate the brake and turn signal https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/posts/6565979/ Also I just realized, are the brake lights just the middle small part like a model 3 or does it also illuminate the “C” like the model Ys?

    I may switch my MYP order for a 4680 LFP Austin Model Y and add FSD if the longevity benefits are there. Lots of hinting at million mile batteries so maybe FSD gets somewhat figured out before that battery dies. Model X is a lot more car than a Model Y. Performance levels of the plaid are...
