    IF the mods allow this to stay... it is a thread for pre-driver assist, pre-D owners.
    Yes, that's right! I'm brown, lacewood, P (all antique) AND I'M PROUD. So proud, I spent an extra 5k after D announcement to paint correct and wrap my car!

    I want a new FW thread that's for grizzled vets: no release anxiety, no "I didn't get it", no "I got it", no redundant posting of the release notes!
    AND, no endless discussion of ACC, lack of blind spot detection, and other driver assist stuff we ain't got.

    SO, if you're an antique P85, P85+, 85, 60, or 40 owner and have some insight on 6.1, put it here!

    The mods just need to pull all the ACC and driver assist stuff discussion out of the Firmware thread and put it into it's own discussion. I am curious on how many of us "antiques" have actually gotten the update yet and if they have seen any bugs.

    It generally takes several weeks for all the cars to be updated. Often there are minor point releases between the first and last receivers of the update--so I'm in no particular hurry to get it.

    So glad you started this thread. I'm tired and jealous of reading about all the cool stuff that i won't get. Love my P85.

    I feel kind of proud that mine is an "antique". We recently had a meet up, and mine and a sig were the only ones more than about 7 months old. it was like a badge of honor, and the newbies were sort of giving us props for buying so early. Funny.

    Can't be anyone with a more "antique" MS than me. Vin 1571 with Sycamore Brown. And quite frankly, I'd be more inclined to upgrade to a new S85 were it not for the absence of the brown color. And no D for this kid. As a roadtrip warrior, I NEED all the frunk space I can get.:smile:

    Great idea! Wading through the more general firmware 6.1 thread to filter out the posts about the emerging autopilot features is tedious.

    However, I humbly object to the term "antique". That term is usually used to refer to automobiles greater than 25 years age, and has the connotation of obsolete. My Model S is not antique nor obsolete; it's now "pre autopilot vintage" (as in the sense of a fine wine), and is still getting appropriate firmware updates from the mother ship.

    I have not received the update yet, but my July 2014 build P85+ is in the San Diego Service Center and one of the items on the docket was "firmware upgrade". I am due to get the car back today (Sat Jan 10), and I hope the appropriate 6.1 firmware will be on-board. If it is, I'll post what I learn here later today or tomorrow.

    I am content not having the "D" but missing out on parking sensors by a few weeks still pisses me off, my maps have never been updated so hopefully that will all be packaged together in 6.1.

    Waiting for the update notification on the iPhone sure is nice compared to going out to the garage to check like in the "old days".

    Should be a FORUM and not just a thread. EARLY might be a better name than Antique though.

    How about "Classic", "Legacy", "1.0", "Original" or "Pioneer"?

    For those who now have the update on their [see above adjectives] MS, please tell us more about your experience with 6.1 (living vicariously until the update arrrives).

    Mod note: I waded through the Firmware-6-1 thread and moved all the ACC discussion to Adaptive-Cruise-Control-(8experience-post-FW-v6-1) (don't ask me how long it took....my mouse is sore)

    Changed the title of this thread but please use the Firmware-6-1 for discussion of the firmware.


    (I also alerted to the other mods that in future we may need separate threads for FW updates relevant to "Classic" cars or to "Autopilot" cars)

    I have a "classic" MS too - just missed the parking sensors. I went to the "D" announcement, love the car and glad they did it, but there is nothing compelling for me there.

    I am, however, glad to see features in 6.1 that are relevant and still work for us too.

    I'm in with my P15xxx P85+ without sensors or folding mirrors!

    My car goes in for annual service next week right before I embark on a 2400 mile road trip. Sure hope I can get the new firmware. Looking forward to the update energy usage graphs.

    Are you sure you didn't get a maps update at any point? I got one in mid-december, unrelated to any other software update, and my car (a 2012 Signature, vin #553) is way older than yours.

    Heh, funny thread.. :)

    I have a "semi-classic" S85 (no autopilot stuff, but new enough that I have parking sensors and titanium shield from the factory). I got 6.1 last Thursday, so I was pretty much among the first who received it. This was interesting in itself, as it took 2 weeks for the 6.0 to come my way (counted from the first reports).

    So, yes, 6.1 is coming to our classic cars as well as to the new P85Ds. :)
