    I have used it successfully a couple of times - one was so tight I wouldn't attempt it myself - but Tesla did a pretty good job.

    I've activated it a handful of times - it does a good job.

    Was this on a AP2 or AP1 car?

    Mine is AP1 MS. The so-called calibration took quite some time. I believe you have to drive past a number of slots before it finishes calibration. Going back and forth of the same slot may not be enough. Anyone with AP2 can share their experience on calibration?

    The autopark feature has not been released for AP 2 cars in Hong Kong, yet.

    Mine is AP2 MS, my Sales Rep said it should be working. But then again, he could be wrong. So is Lane Assist not yet released for AP2 in HK as well?

    He's wrong. Not the first time ;-)

    Auto-steer is not yet available here in HK for AP 2 either. We do have TACC though.

    Any idea what timeline we are looking at to get the approval for auto parking and autopilot on highways with sub-dividers? Similar to the AP1 cars.

    Nothing beyond guesses. To me it just seems that TACC in Hong Kong is not as good as it is in USA. Perhaps it is a RHD vs LHD thing - they just don't have enough RHD miles driven with AP2 yet.

    So, I'm watching how TACC improves over time. When it gets comparable to LHD TACC, then I'll expect auto-steer to arrive. Auto-park could come anytime, as I don't think that is related.
