    Window rolls all the way down when opening door

    Hi all, Haven't seen a recent thread on this, so starting this. Ever since updating my 2018 M3 to 2021.4.12, 90% of the time when you open the front passenger door, the window will roll down 60%, then all the way. Once the passenger enters, the window will roll back up slightly, still about 60%...

    Anyone else having trouble with TuneIn radio stations?

    For the last several weeks now, I have been unable to play internet based radio stations found under the TuneIn section.

    2012 Model S 85 $35,000

    Almost six years after taking delivery in Fremont, we have come full circle with our Model S. The Model X takes care of the hauling and it's bigger than I need, so I'm updating to Model 3. In case someone here is interested in outbidding Tesla's trade-in value, I thought I'd post it here. She...

    Car wash staff didn't want to send car through

    Just checking if anyone else had this happen... My wife took our X to a new car wash, and they strongly urged her to do a hand wash. Apparently they had a previous X go through the regular wash and the spoiler got ruined. (Static spoiler, not the folding performance version.) We've taken the...

    AP2 can't read speed limits?

    We bought an MX with AP2 and it very often gets the speed limit wrong, despite driving by unobscured speed limit signs, regardless of time of day or weather. In our neighborhood the speed limit is 25, but the car thinks it's 30, despite signage. Does the car rely on some (semi-correct) database...
