    Edit: Tried to fix the thread title for this one, but can't see how to do it! Maybe the mods can help me out?

    Saw this in the Model S Owner's Guide:

    Does this mean that buttons have two sensitivity settings? In other words, hold the button halfway down to control the window explicitly, or press it firmly and release to send the window to the completely open setting?

    That's how I read it. It's exactly how my current (ICE) cars work.

    That is the way I read it. Exactly the same as my VW GTI.

    That's how I read it, and funnily enough, that's how it works too. :)

    Seems like a silly question, but when I read it (granted it was VERY late last night) the "press the switch quickly and lightly" part got me. It made it seem that a light "tap" on the switch would drop the window partway, and therefore the window only would have 3 settings (open, closed, or partly closed). Fortunately reason, sleep, and your responses have clarified this!

    I hope the computer can control the windows, even if it's not enabled yet. I would love functionality like they have for the pano roof. I would like 'all windows up', 'all windows down', and 'all windows 50% open' buttons on the touch screen.

    title changed for you, and yes, this works like this in my current car as well.

    Maybe a tad off topic, but have we determined if the windows drop a fraction when opening the doors, then raise to complete a seal, a la most frameless doors??

    Yep, just like my MINI Cooper 03.

    And for windows, a firmware update could enable a auto down feature via fob or smartphone app. Since my MINI does this as well. All windows and roof opens with fob.

    Doesn't holding down the fob open the windows?

    Yes. Pressing and holding the roof of the fob opens all four windows.

    Confirmed. Everything discussed here sounds exactly how our sig operates!
