    WOW, driving a model 3, tried the new autopilot trial was amazing. way better driver than I, kept perfectly in the lane, switching lanes, cruise, etc. worked great day and night. not sure how much it cost after trial but tempted.... It's a drag driving a normal car!

    Here's my first thoughts 5 days in...

    Autopark is sweet. It doesn't detect the parking spots sometimes but when it does it was awesome. My wife was impressed too.

    Autosteer also takes getting used to. THe problem I have sometimes is it limits the speed limit. I am guessing it detects I am not in a highway so it limits the car to 50mph.

    Autosteering and keeping you in the lane spoils you.

    SOmetimes, I feel my car gets too close to the cars on the right lane... but maybe its just me. ANyone else with that feeling?

    My Wife drives a HOnda Clarity (plugin hybrid), but it also assists in keeping you in the lanes (called Lane Keep Assist) and also features adaptive cruise control. THese are 2 things that I will use a lot, and it hurts to have to pay $5500 to get these features (that came standard with Honda) into my Model 3.

    On the fence about keeping the autopilot. WIsh it was cheaper.

    My trial ended today.

    It's it true that the reduced price is only thru September 30?
