regarding permits, i looked at a lot of older permits from this factory. it’s not unheard of for permits to have no inspections and end in the issued state.
true, the two i keep referencing though, the bus bar one failed (that may end up being closed by now), the tool install one just finished plan check on 4/1, so regardless of anything, 7 days for an install of something that took plan check a month to get through, idk :D

can you explain to me the fixation that so many have about having the rear camera on while driving forwards
We got a new Escalade a few months ago and it has the camera display on the rearview mirror while driving. Seemed like a silly feature until we moved packed some things in the truck for my sister-in-law from Lowes. We quickly saw it was a great feature when the back window is completely obstructed.

that still doesn't explain the need that some have to view what is going on behind them while driving forwards

to the guys waiting for the cars you reserved, haven't you learned from the history of tesla? Every car that tesla introduced, almost any "promise" from Elon, has never appeared when promised.
why would anyone believe that the intro of the refreshed S would defy this reality?

I see that some people like it, my question is WHY?
Simple: there are some blind spots on the S that the rear camera helps to alleviate especially when there's heavy traffic during commutes. I find it useful when I know I've got some dodging to do because of the way people drive in my neck of the woods.

If it makes someone more comfortable with driving then it's a benefit - nothing really to concern yourself with if you drive differently.
