    I can't believe they still haven't fixed this.

    I'm still on 7. 1 with no plans to upgrade unless forced to.

    That's true for about 100 demonstrable things.

    I had that problem from January 2015 until August this year. After several attempts by service and owner support to resolve it, owner support finally found that my car was somehow marked as not delivered. Once that was fixed, I started receiving automatic OTA updates again.

    True, but in the case of limited ac recirc we are talking about a feature that was present on the car at delivery and has been significantly degraded.

    I can't say I've noticed the recirculation issue, but I have noticed that the max temp was recently dropped from 90F to 82F. I was turning it on through the app, bumped it up to 90F to get it warmed up faster, and it snapped down to 82F. Confirmed that the car now designates 82F as HI. It's sometimes annoying that the people who make my car function mostly only know California weather.

    I've noticed that too, but at the same time when I do kick the temp to HI I've noticed the car has reported interior temps as great as 92F. Are you using HI to run the heat aggressively (my use) or because you want to minimize use of cooling?

    Mostly because I want it comfortably warm in the few minutes it would take me to get to the car. I tend to not turn it on until I'm starting on my way to the car. Plus, I've had at least one time recently where even HI (82F) wasn't enough to get me feeling warm enough in a 20 minute drive. On the other hand, I also didn't think to switch vents to manual, and auto tends to do anything except upper-body vents.

    Oh right, you're just around the corner, I should've realized you were using it for quick heating. Anyway, like I said you might check whether HI is actually treating 82F as the set point where it cuts the resistive elements out, because my limited experience is that it's not. My guess (that I haven't tried to verify) was that the scale goes ...79F, 80F, 81F, full-blast (which sometimes gets rendered by UI elements as 82F), and that the only real change vs. earlier versions was the decision that we don't really need settable increments degree-by-degree all the way through the eighties -- that it's basically 70s and then "all the heat". Which, if true, WFM.

    (I use HI a little differently than you do -- I find regular preheating good enough most of the time, and just use HI to heat soak the car for road trips.)
