    Yes, screen shots are from two different owners.

    I wouldn't necessarily say that. Service has no trouble seeing my individual tire pressures, in the right locations, if I ask them.

    Love all of the improvements for us Classic owners! Bring it! :)

    The new Hill Hold function is one that I've been requesting for a long time and am glad that Tesla is implementing it. It makes no sense to only hold on hills. It should work in all situations. Looks like we are finally going to get that. The improved driveline performance for classics is also wonderful news. Breathing new life into my 2 year old car... love it!

    Clearly, I am the simpleton around here.

    I am most excited about TPMS giving me individual tire pressures, followed by improved climate system controls. These are two of the small handful of things that my Chevy Volt did a better job of than my Model S.

    I do foresee a problem in the implementation though... It says it disables if you press the brake again, that's very counter-intuitive and is almost guaranteed to cause someone to roll back in to something unexpectedly at some point.

    ... and hey, where is the improved navigation with waypoints, multiple routing options, etc.?

    There's no keeping us happy, is there? lol

    I'm not sure how they could do it differently. So if a driver has creep on and enables hold, then they want to resume creeping? It's natural to assume a light press/release will turn off hill hold when a hard press/release turns it on. I like it!

    Something that makes no sense at all...
    Best guess, an improved "coast" mode when you have the right angle of road?

    Probably slightly improved efficiency somehow...

    Torque sleep for RWD vehicles is explained in the images posted above:
    Glad to read this, although I'm surprised they weren't already doing this.

    Does this make you feel better about the veracity of my post last night?

    Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

    It will work now just like my 4Runner works (when it engages, 4Runner won't engage on flat road), plus have an indicator light. Personally, I anticipate liking this setup. Removing my foot from the brake (after a sufficient time for hill hold to engage) will give me whatever amount of time I need to hit the go-pedal. So I can let go when the light turns green, but have the car wait while the four cars in front of me take off.

    Yeah, it was a lucky guess.

    I'm wondering if this is the first time EAP/beta testers are seeing lane-keeping. A couple days ago someone indicated that beta 7 initially did not have it. Before now, has there been any confirmation of lane-keeping in v7?

    If it's just getting out to beta, the public release might still be a ways off.
