    I have been looking for a place to keep issues I am having with the car, I keep forgetting about them, or they get solved and I don't update my notes about them. Just one place that I can share with others. Since there isn't a Tesla Wiki I thought I would use the one on TMC to organize my thoughts, others should add their own or update the wiki as needed.

    Would love a RWD aftermarket option to use the space where the AWD 2nd motor goes. I can envision a gasoline hydronic heater, or a drinking water chiller, someone suggested a car vacuum. Items that you don't need access to the full item, just access to the tank cap under the hood.

    [I ADDED THESE TO WIKI POST]

    Here's what I consider my "Top 5" glaring omissions from this price class, not to mention a company that prides itself on being the most technologically advanced:
    • Answer/hangup a phone call with the steering wheel buttons
    • Call a specific number in a contact. Example, "Call John Doe, Mobile" should use the "mobile" entry of John Doe's contact info. (now it brings up John Doe and I have to scroll on screen and manually select which number)
    • Navigate to a contact's address. Example "Navigate to John Doe Work" would navigate to John Doe's work address - not do a an internet search for "John Doe Work"
    • Allow long-press of Voice button to invoke Siri or Google Assistant - this is how it works lots of other cars. Short-press (i.e., click) gets you Tesla's voice assistant, and long-press ( hold for 1s) get's you your phone's.
    And if you really want to go for gold:
    • Wireless CarPlay/Android Auto

    What is the process by which one gets these "in the database" at Tesla?

    Chat or call the support lines. I had the regional support guy on the phone as I had an appointment coming up. The local service centers assign a regional support person to work with you to diagnose the issue BEFORE arriving at the shop, so they know what they are going to do and what parts should be available in case they need to be replaced.

    He was the one that told me that submitting a bug report in the car stays in the car, and doesn't make it into the improvements database.

    I have been keeping a list of my own issues, just thought it would be nice to have a place where I can share the list with others that may want to make changes or additions. I am marking the ones I submitted and if I speak to a tech in the future I'll submit the new ones too.

    Not sure how it would work to answer the phone. Just click on the right scroll wheel? And if you want to invoke Siri with a long press what happens to the ability to press and hold to sample your voice you now have? I like being able to clip just the part where I am saying something as someone in the car ALWAYS starts talking the second I shut up because they don't know I am talking to the car.

    Maybe you could double-click the right scroll wheel instead to wake up Siri. I am tired of how long it takes to talk to Siri THRU Bluetooth. As I stated above I wish it would optionally allow you to not have Siri go thru the car mic. Perhaps this is a request for Apple.

    There are a LOT of things I wish I could ask the car to do, not just connect to Contacts. Seems like EVERYTHING in the car should have a call out. I wonder if this is the deal they struck with Google and until they bring speech recognition into the car themselves there will be no new features added to it.

    1) Yes, just click the right button to answer or hang up (if already on the phone). This is the way it's worked on every other car I've owned that had bluetooth phone integration.

    2) On the three cars I've owned/leased with built-in voice recognition - they all worked where "click" gets you the car's voice assistant and a press-for-a-second gets you siri or andriod auto. I just assumed this was an "industry standard" until I got the Model 3.

    I'm not sure what you mean about pressing and holding to sample your voice. I think you can <click><say whatever to the car><click> - no need to keep the button pressed.

    Ah, guess I could do that. I have always either held while I talk or <click> Say what I want and then wait for Google to figure out I'm done. But that is a fine option, thanks. Now if we can get Tesla to implement it.

    I'd like the ability to close the vents (each side separately). My wife won't even ride in the car with me anymore because she wants the vents closed and no amount of positioning the flow works for her.

    @Enginerd I like what you did with the Updates Table.

    As you can see I added the pics from all the V9 updates Release Notes that I could find. Including a link to where the notes could be found for each. I know you just did a bunch with color coding the table and reversing the organization, but do you think you still have the link to the information that is posted in the table? Like how do we know the Neural Net was updated in 7.11, an Elon Tweet? I don't find any notes about it.

    I also removed some of the duplicate entries that you put back. I figure we can assume that features are NOT changed if the OS is not listed, so we don't need to list 19.8.3 & .4 if they have the same features as 19.8.2. Do you agree? Just looking to make the chart easier to read.
