So... did my APv1 car just get shot in the head?

    I'm just waiting for the day:

    "Sir, you are driving your car on the highway"... "Sir, do you know how dangerous that is"?!

    Well, when I was a kid, I used to drive my car wherever the hell I wanted you young whippersnapper...

    the year is 2032.

    I'll wait a few years and buy a CPO AP 2.0 car. Problem solved.

    So you decided to bring a level-headedness into this forum? Is that a word? :)
    I just gave back a 2012 loaner yesterday after driving it for 6 days. I loved it! Felt good to drive an original. The first Tesla production car turned into "car of the year" by many car mags. Great job by Tesla and they just keep improving it. But this car is more like my computer which becomes outdated in under 6 months. :(
    I now have a 2 month old car with yesterdays technology :( No regrets though. I love it and will upgrade in 3 years :)

    To be clear, I'm not *exactly* complaining. More pointing out what I think is an unexpectedly soon shift away from APv1 development and optimization.

    I definitely want Tesla to innovate; I am just a bit dismayed at how digital this evolutionary step seems likely to be.

    Full disclosure: I haven't gotten 8.0 yet, and I'm worried at the folks who view it as a regression. If the regression is going to be the effective end of the road for my car's AP capabilities, that's pretty disappointing.
