    Can we please use the correct term here, software and not firmware?

    Since updates contain both software and firmware you can use the terms interchangeability and they'd both be accurate.

    Are you sure they do firmware updates OTA? I kind of doubt that. Firmware updates are typically done with computer connected directly to the car.

    Yes, I'm positive.

    Likewise, Elon referred to firmware regarding updates to the braking system

    Keep in mind the car is a computer and therefore updating firmware on various controllers can be done straight from the car after receiving the update.
