    Mercedes-Benz receives world's first internationally valid system approval for conditionally automated driving

    you guys are seriously paid trolls or seriously the most naive group i've come across yet. even if the Pope himself told me this marketing gimmick is safe I WOULD NOT TRUST IT WITH MY LIFE. and Mercedes understands it's not good at all thus all the limitations and i'm sure many many excuses when...

    Mercedes-Benz receives world's first internationally valid system approval for conditionally automated driving

    how many times do i have to say this is just a desperate marketing ploy to stay relevant. you guys all ate it up like it was a real advancement or something. let's all ignore how badly Tesla is trouncing them in Europe even without Gigaberlin fully operational. this whole "competition is coming"...

    Mercedes-Benz receives world's first internationally valid system approval for conditionally automated driving

    all this talk about SAE levels and such are a waste or time honestly. as long as there are human drivers on the road i wouldn't trust any situation enough to even allow myself to sleep in an Autonomous Vehicle. the focus is on the wrong side. humans make far too many mistakes (fall asleep, get...

    Mercedes-Benz receives world's first internationally valid system approval for conditionally automated driving

    but i think you are confusing the generalized solution Tesla is working on with a more limited system like Waymo (or in this case MB). from all I have seen Tesla is tackling the much harder but more necessary solution AND they have apparently the best engineers (Karpathy etc) working on it...

    Mercedes-Benz receives world's first internationally valid system approval for conditionally automated driving

    honestly don't even think unsupervised FSD will ever be allowed if humans are still allowed to drive. i could be wrong and i hope i am but the problem really seems to be that human drivers wouldn't be able to cooperate with robots. just look at how those grocery store bots are treated lol. wait...

    Mercedes-Benz receives world's first internationally valid system approval for conditionally automated driving

    so apparently we are just going to trust that Mercedes' ADAS system is somehow orders of magnitude more reliable in some way over Tesla? let's be honest here. these tactics smell of obvious desperation. they are going to find ways to market their tech as superior without having to prove as such...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    just did some drives. about what i expected. has trouble picking the correct lane at times. but not sure if that's FSD's problem or just the crappy designed roads. it'll have to learn anyhow. anyone who gets it please be careful. otherwise my mind is blown.

    What should I do with my Model 3?

    stop trying to address the symptom and get at the root cause. fix your diet. eat more meat. stop eating processed junk. if you are vegan just stop. your manic state is caused by your diet. trust me on this. and yea maybe sell the car. but that's not the real issue here. no one understands this.

    Did you PPF your new Tesla?

    seems a waste for what is meant to be a daily driven car. much better ways to utilize that money. just because "everyone" seems to be doing it doesn't mean it makes sense. save your money for a real rainy day. or buy some TSLA. i'm sure you'll get better bang for your buck.

    Did you guys shop around before deciding on the Model 3?

    what do you compare to the M3? something that has no real competition in the market atm imho? every other car feels like a pig now that i drive the M3. don't have to worry about any ICE parts breaking down. out the door everyday with a full tank if you wanted to. really nothing to compare...

    Getting pissed with degredation

    hate to psychoanalyze but i'm thinking this OCD behavior stems from some unrelated underlying issue in your life. perhaps get another hobby to obsess over?

    Politics - Quarantine Thread

    apparently all the deaths due to the fallout from a ruined economy are meaningless. this is not money versus lives. this is lives versus lives. if the mainstream media really cared they would be telling people how to improve their health and immune system. but i guess that's too much to ask and...

    Politics - Quarantine Thread

    this virus is simply a wake up call for all the obese/immunity-compromised to get off the carb addiction wagon. why does everyone else have to suffer because you can't keep from stuffing your face with twinkies??? instead of saying ppl are dying of this stupid virus which is barely worse than...

    COVID-19 Vegetarian and other off-topic stuff

    let's just say that you can look at this pandemic from multiple perspectives. if there weren't so many with comorbidities that arise from the highly inflammatory processed foods diet that is so common nowadays there wouldn't be nearly as many deaths from this virus. there is much blame to go...

    COVID-19 Vegetarian and other off-topic stuff

    you mean the same experts who have ruined countless lives with their bullshit dietary advice? thanks but no thanks. if there is one maxim it is that we know far less than we think we do. "experts" included.

    Don't try this on the highway... 2020.4.1

    yea NoA tried to kill me too taking this one exit. violently took an exit where there was a dividing wall. i'm 90% sure if i didn't react in time i would've crashed into the wall. fun to be a guinea pig eh?

    Delivered With a Dozen Paint Defects...Am I Being Unreasonable?

    it's a fricking car. not a piece of jewelry. for godsakes try paying 5 figures for a watch and seeing that even there are "imperfections." nothing in this world is "perfect." grow up people.

    Insurance on a Stealth VS LR AWD

    progressive doesn't seem to differentiate. all i know is my new stealth is about $200 less to insure than the 2014 M235i I replaced. winner winner chicken dinner.

    Discussion: Floor Mats in Model 3

    2020 model year 3D Maxpider shows the seat rail discrepancy between model years. so i don't know if i should wait for better fitting ones. also yea i know there is a dead pedal shaped area but still there is no dead pedal so the mats in the market now that cover that area might not fit as well...

    Discussion: Floor Mats in Model 3

    don't know what floor mats to get since i don't know how well the existing floor mats on Amazon fit the new Model 3's which don't have a dead pedal. and also from another thread it seems the seat rails are an inch further up than 2019's. any recommendations?

    Cost of ownership of buying Model 3 vs keeping my M235i.

    Taking a quick look at prices $30k for the m235i after 6 years seems way too high. 20k is the going price anywhere you look. Guy must be an idiiot. Sell now lol.

    Cost of ownership of buying Model 3 vs keeping my M235i.

    If someone really will pay you 30k for a 2014 m235i you better take it. I'm trading mine in for 17k to Tesla. Same car as yours.

    When is Tesla gonna start producing for U.S?

    Original order 10/07. Changed to a stealth on 11/21. Delivery scheduled for 12/16 in Maryland. So I guess transport takes 3 weeks to the east coast. More waiting sigh.

    LR AWD Performance (Stealth TM3) Waiting Room

    so yea i got a VIN in source ending in 602575 for my P3D-. the build details say LR Performance but the Order Agreement PDF still has my original regular LRAWD build. anyone else have this?
  39. J

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    When is Tesla gonna start producing for U.S?

    Ordered LR AWD on 10/7. Still no VIN. Sales guy sent me an email saying should be this or next week. Anyone order before me and also haven't got the VIN yet?

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    No VINs in October?

    LR AWD ordered on 10/07 RN = 43486 trading in a BMW as well. hope the frustrating wait is worth it.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Anyone get an error message when trying to open the order agreement PDF?
  45. J

    Any logical sense in order fulfillment?

    it's not even just that they don't update anyone. it's that I ordered the car on 10/07 when it said/still says "within 2 weeks." and now it's going on 5 weeks. that just pisses me off. there has to be a better/more transparent process.

    LR AWD Waiting Room

    Ordered 10/07 M3 LR AWD White on White Changed Delivery Center on 10/21 from Devon PA to Owings Mills MD. the rep at Devon told me i had a VIN i wonder if changing delivery center delayed me. wish the guy would've told me. no VIN in source code at all. still waiting.
