    You have no idea what else the update included. For example, security patches so your car doesn't get hacked.

    Yeah, kind of a shitty attitude. At least you got an update! What other car manufacturer does that?

    Then "TURN IT ON" but don't complain when the car gets stolen or robbed because you facilitate use of radio repeaters.
    I am rather happy that Tesla help minimize the chance of theft this way. Most car makers can't do that.

    I don’t tend to get excited about things for which I’ve paid in advance.

    I do recognize that patches delivered neither with standard release notes nor with a user-accessible rollback mechanism are themselves imbued with a certain level of risk.

    Any other car manufacturer that “does that” would be somewhat suspect and perhaps ill-served (see Chrysler for how to not implement software updates).

    With that somewhat more realistic and neutral baseline having been set, the OP would be well-served to not confuse a lack of information with a lack of value (noting WhiteX’s point about security-related fixes).

    All is not lost, rose-colored glasses crowd - people can still get sunburned during cloudy days, too.

    To which I say “Let us all rejoice in the daylight albeit absent of direct sunlight, as it beats making our way in the dark.”

    This is what has happened to the general attitude of the populace of the UK towards all things American ever since it was announced an American Episcopal bishop was going to officiate at the Royal Wedding.

    I rarely accept updates any more. They usually work worse than the previous one.
