    Do you guys mind posting the screenshots here? Seems that the forum has banned IP addresses outside Norway / Europe?

    Man oh man .... I will be so disappointed if this isn't available to us or comes as an expensive retrofit.

    Thanks for this!

    That's software version 1.35.76 -- I think this is a new one.

    Thanks for posting this! The pictures of the kid seats are different. We have a leather type material on the sides vs. these that have all fabric. Cupholder is the same though.

    Thank you Cirion, I have posted this information on the Dutch part of this Forum. Nice information for us in Europe.

    So want that cold weather package. Parking sensors seem well-done as well.

    Interestingly, the user NorwegianX on the web forum belonging to the Norwegain Electric Vehicle Association has reported that the NAV in the EU spec cars have a choice between "Car Up" and "North Up". No pictures yet.

    This was confirmed in testing at Teslive by Jerome for all cars. And said update should be rolled out in a month or so (they were always very vague on when software updates were being rolled out).

    Cool! I like the WiFi tethering, that way it can connect to my WiFi at home and lurk in F/W updates faster.


    Ack! Passed one yesterday in the Roadster.

    We also have 3-phase power ;)

    Only on every other street corner though.

    Love the parking sensor integration, hope it becomes an option in the US, and hope it'll cost <$1000. Not likely though.

    Why should the parking sensor option be more expensive in the US, when all other prices and options are far more expensive in the EU???
    Coming from the current relation US pricing/EU pricing the parking sensors (500 Euro) should be around 400 to 500 USD.

    Because it would be a retro-fit, and, well, because Tesla can get away with charging an arm and a leg. As an option for a new build, it might be cheaper, or bundled into some other options.

    I am so upset about the parking sensors now that I see how nicely done they have integrated them! Dam!

    Nice find! Parking sensors look really nice with distance in cm. :)
    Too bad it's still the old release notes, and why the 5.5 instead of 4.6 or 5.0?
