    Air Suspension no longer lowers at highway speeds (FW update v5.8)

    I concluded "at all". I hope I am wrong. They also replaced the lower front bushings as part of a campaign. I can post the service report if anyone is interested. Kai

    What are Elons credentials as a climate scientist? He is no more credible on this than Gore. And to make it clear, we are CAGW deniers. The climate has obviously been changing for millions of years, long before us and will do so long after us. Nobody is arguing that point.

    The treeline varies by climate. Warmer=higher. The treeline has been higher in the past than in modern times, so the climate has been warmer. The treeline has also been lower than modern times, so the climate has been colder. This means that the current climate is inside Historical margins.

    This is the downside of having a computer on wheels. Tesla can materially alter the vehicle after the fact.

    Air Suspension no longer lowers at highway speeds (FW update v5.8)

    Lowering improved range and handling. Lowering actually gives it a stiffer ride at speed than standard suspension. The car is not any more what it was when sold. If this is permanent I will ask for a partial refund.
