    Hello! Just about to upgrade my 2013 S85 to a new 75D. An exact inventory model is available for pickup in the bay area. I live in LA and I travel the Bay Area for work quite a bit. I was thinking of just picking it up while I was up there and driving it back down.

    One concern is I know Autopilot takes time to calibrate. Would this calibration happen while I'm driving? Would it have to wait overnight? I'd vastly prefer to Autosteer down to LA if it was available. :)

    I don't think there is any calibration necessary within the new car.
    It does send data to the mother ship which is used to fine tune the algorithms.
    You should be fine... just drive and enjoy it!

    Nope. :( But I've owned my S85 for 3.5 years and I looked back and while I have used more than 400 KWh in a year before it wasn't much more and the cost to pay for that would be marginal. I'm not upset by that.

    Are you aware it would be 55mph max anyway?

    Yeah, remembered that shortly after posting this thread and so I opted for delivery instead. It'll come next week. ;)

    Took delivery of our 100D today. "Camera calibration error" popped up until I had driven 45 expressway miles and stopped for a Coke. Got back in and cameras were calibrated.

    Same for me. Picked up from factory and after my first stop it was calibrated.
