    This is the auto braking and side collision avoidance update at 8.1 but not the actual auto pilot?

    For those not familiar, autopilot (auto steering + TACC) is visible via the blue (when active) steering wheel icon top middle right of the dash (see the picture I posted above).

    When you get the update, which I assume is starting to roll out to other cars in HK, the notes are very obvious explaining the features and how it works, including auto lane changing.

    By the way, I found the auto lane change a bit slow and hesitant for HK roads. I only saw it work once, the other times it took too long and I just took control of the car.

    I believe at the moment you are the only one with this update in HK. Maybe you got it in error o_O

    I called Tesla. They said AP2 features are rolling out on Model S now. They are working the Model X update in order to account for the airbag bug. No ETA but they said it should not take too long.

    This is awesome! I had to get my GPS fixed which involved resetting the CPU so I'm back at the calibration phase (don't see cars in front of me on the dash nor do I see the lane lines) but this will be great once it does work.

    Just got this in the mail. Seems like Tesla is going to roll out the autopilot updates to MX's soon if not already.

    Just got this before posting as well.
    Historically, I've recieved these emails after the update has hit the car already.
    Will try and reset the MCU tonight to see if it makes a difference.

    I'll test the autopilot function more this weekend - hopefully its not raining too hard (I'm still not confident enough to rely on autopilot in bad weather). I only managed to drive with it on for a few trips last Sunday. Generally it works well. My brief observations so far:
    - Auto lane change too slow, hesitates. I would not be confident using it unless on a large freeway where it can take its time to change lanes. I did see it work once and it seems to work well moving into other lane.
    - Auto park only seems to detect when there are cars / obstruction on both sides of the car spot. I briefly tried it once but it started positioning in a way which was going to take a long time to correct, so I took over.

    Will have to try it out more this weekend.

    As I recall this is the only way it works (both for parallel or perpendicular).
