    This will likely solve many of the clunky UI troubles of today. Big-ass screen but i was not into big screen TVs either. There was promises on UI redesign lately but that went the way of Elon tweets.

    The interior and seats of my 2012 $47K Hyundai Equus were much nicer and more comfortable than my 2016 S P90DL, and the back seats were much more roomy. But other than these things my Tesla is better in every way. The 5.0L 429HP V8 in my Equus feels like a Prius compared to Ludicrous.

    MP3 "Mr disagree" Mike is back. No actual response though..

    Are you the same guy who actually sold mp3.com to Vivendi back in the day? If so, i see that the smugness is still intact.

    Many of what you list rang true to me (hence this thread). Especially the Seats and the Navi. Since you articulate it better, i am just going to quote you.
    Maybe Elon reads these threads in his copious spare time. And the improvements will come next month :)

    Adele: Hello...:(

    I WANT THE PROPER REGENERATION DISPLAY BACK in the centre of the driver's display, like in 6. ... The little car symbol is totally useless.
    I WANT BETTER HEADLIGHTS
    No more shouting. Still love the Model S. Could drive anything- chose Model S.

    Physical buttons.

    Too hard to make adjustments to basic settings (like temperature, fan speed, seat heating) safely while driving. The touch screen is interface is mainly a way to save cost in lieu of proper buttons.

    Headlights that actually illuminate the road properly, door and window seals that keep out noise and water, active suspension, brakes actually designed for a 5000 lb performance car with a < 3 sec 0-60 time would be nice.

    Blind spot (audible alert) & light-up mirrors

    This feature on my older car has saved my skin many times in crazy city traffic.

    Incredulous that the most technologically advanced carmaker in the world has missed it. Maybe those EAP cameras will show adjacent lanes on the dash shortly but the audible & visual alerts are more intuitive.

    Here's hoping that the Model 3 will have this simple feature. Otherwise i will have to reconsider the pimped out $25k Civic hatchback or the Mazda 3.
