    So I just saw this photo from Facebook and noticed a couple of things.
    1) 'things' above the rear view mirror, what are these?
    2) screens look different?

    Am I going crazy?

    Are you referring to the dot matrix sign on the train carriage ceiling?

    It looks like there are cameras, or some sort of sensors, in the headliner area between the reading lights. My early US-spec VIN just has a mesh screen in this area.

    There's definitely two things different in this car.

    First the thing above the mirror. Never seen that before.

    Secondly there seems to be a yellow instruction in the list of turn-by-turn instructions of the map.

    It must be a new car, like the brand new loaner we had recently, with a camera for autopilot and speedlimit sign recognition

    It is the sensors for the Security package.

    If that's the case then it makes sense since I believe that package is only available in Europe?

    I knew there was something different about the turn-by-turn instructions! Check out this image from the thread discussing the new 6.1 firmware! It turns out the car in the Amsterdam to London rally was running a beta of the 6.1 firmware.
