    Since we are getting valet mode soon why not different autopilot modes (Gen 3 target in mind)

    1. Driver Eds mode, recently my nephew learned how to drive & it would be great if car automatically set autopilot to max safety, torque & speed.
    2. Teenager, young adult mode
    3. Elderly parents mode
    4. Bad weather mode, if distance is set to 2 & it begins to rain AP changes to 6.
    5. Night mode, especially weekend nights after 10:00 pm (odds of intoxicated drivers increase)
    6. Holiday mode, New Years Eve, St. Patricks Day, Cinco de Mayo, Halloween (trick-or-treaters) etc..
    7. School zone (when pedestrian detection is enabled)


    Car can either suggest these mode changes & driver agrees or given an override except for young adults & elderly parents modes.

    LOL.

    How about:

    8. Sandwich Mode. Makes sandwich when hungry. If ingredients not available, proceed to nearest Subway and activate Jared driver profile.
    9. Ice cream truck mode. Only available with Premium Audio option. Plays ice cream truck music while on autopilot set to 10MPH and stops when children are detected in its sensors.
    10. Stalker mode. Drives to nearest ex-girlfriend or ex-wifes house, lowers air suspension, and drives at 5MPH allowing you to scope out the situation. When ex appears, autopilot then speeds up and leaves the scene.
