I've been taking an interest in saving up for a Tesla myself but I recently came across
this video concerning some security and privacy risks with Tesla cars, namely its Over-The-Air features.

After listening to it twice, I tried to look up to see if anyone managed to opt out of the OTA features.
Nobody said they did it in the video's comment section, so I thought I might ask around on forums like this.

I think you might be in the wrong group.

#1 feature of Tesla is OTA updates. Opting out of OTA updates, if possible, should be criminal as it puts people at risk by preventing security updates.
