    New Mercedes MBUX in S-Class

    Was watching this. Quite amazing. Thought Tesla was advanced but this goes to a whole other level like: - user profiles in the cloud with up to 800 parameters; - HUD with augmented reality; - 3D instrument cluster; - haptic feedback on OLED screen; etc.

    Download stopped and disappeared

    I was downloading a new software update today (2020.24.6.10). At 93% it stopped downloading. When I looked again an hour or so later the whole downloading message had disappeared. When checking in the car it said that my software is up to date (2020.24.6.4). Very strange...

    Another great service experience

    After clocking almost 100K km on my MX we had our first issue outside the warranty. Suddenly the passenger door would not open. "OK, here we go" I thought, this is going to hurt $$$$$ So I made an appointment with the app and mobile service only could come in next week Wednesday. Since it is a...

    Great comparison BMW 330i vs M3. Performance

    Great video from the German quality magazine Auto Motor & Sport For the people whose German is a bit rusty, the Tesla wins in every category by a long shot (it almost embarrasses the BMW) except for: - braking with warm brakes - drifting (though the presenter says that for 99% of people that is...

    Sentry mode favorite

    With the new software update you can disable sentry mode for favourite places. But what are "favourite places" and how can you let the system know that a particular place is a favourite place for which sentry mode does not need to be active? I can't find that anywhere.

    Robotaxi and tax

    As soon as the Robotaxi is working as expected and you are making $30K-$40K what are the tax implications? My theory is that - since you are not working yourself - it could not be considered as employment income. You are sitting at home while the car is generating money. So it would probably be...

    It's the end of an era..

    I came across this comparison between the M3 and BMW M3. I don't know if they tested the latest version of the BMW but this car used to be the pinnacle of motoring. The BMW is now beaten in every way by the Tesla. I think this is a turning point in automotive history. Not just the fact that the...

    Just pulled trigger on FSD, hope I did right thing

    I just pulled the trigger on FSD. Because Tesla made some mistakes they would honour the flash sale price of $2800 (Canadian). This was very nice of them. I first wanted to pass but the video with MIT, the upcoming investor's demonstration and the announced price increases made us pull the...

I lived there once and love the people there. Nobody deserves this but of all places... New Zealand. The nicest most...

    Is this the end?

    What happened this week made me very uncomfortable. Tesla had to pay back more than $900 million which coincided with the announcement of the standard Model 3. Tesla always maintained that they were production constrained. Demand remained high even when standard range M3 was not available yet...

    Price FSD Canada

    Does anyone remember what the original price was for FSD on a Model X after delivery? I recall it was something like CAD3,300 before delivery but I might be mistaken, but after delivery I cannot remember. I see the price is now CAD 6,600. If you order a new car now, however, you can see that...

    Tesla's algorithms still out off whack

    Last Monday we went on a rare road trip from the Vancouver Area to Vernon. It was cold and windy and we had to go over a pass (Coquihala Highway). Usually you can travel 400 km with the Tesla. The planner said we had to use the supercharger in Merrit which is about 250 km away. We left with100%...

    Phantom drain while driving

    There is this thing that is bothering me and it just doesn't add up. I have an 100D. I charged it to 79% last night. Which is 79kWh. As you can see I drove during the day and used 26.7 kWh. And the remaining battery is 41% which means 41 kWh (I have a 100D) I should have remaining -- the 79...

    Hooked on autopilot

    CONFESSION Ever since the new update I have been hooked on autopilot. When I see the steering wheel icon pop-up I engage it - even if I know I only have to drive 500 meters before an intersection or something like that, and I know I have to turn it off. In school zones I engage it, with people...

    Charge time. Am I missing something?

    There is something I don't understand. Perhaps someone can help me out? Today I have used almost 48 kWh. I charge at 6 kW and the car says it needs 10.5 hours to charge to 90%. I always charge to 90% so when I started my day today it was also on 90%. If I used 48 kWh and I charge at 6 kW why...

    No high amperage upgrade?

    Saw on the website there is no mention anymore for high amperage charge upgrade in both S and X. First they made it standard in the 100D. Does it mean that high amperage is now standard in 75D as well? Can't find anything on the website..

    Starting to lose faith

    i am trying my utmost saving for a Model X but I am starting to loose faith in Elon's enterprise. The cars are supposed to get cheaper as the batteries are becoming cheaper they say. The Model X 90D base - which was just a few months ago priced at $126,100 - is now gone up to $135.100! If I...

    Question to the people who sat in one

    I have test driven a Model S, however, due to a back injury it was hard for me to get in and out of the car. Therefore I was waiting for the Model X. This turned out to be a little too expensive for me. The Model 3 seems to be a bit higher than the Model S. Can anyone who has sat in one confirm...
