    Thank you. I'm not positive and I've seen some say that it has changed on a recent firmware update. It does seem dynamic based on speed. I usually find that the low end (1-4) is plenty of room for me.

    Excellent video demo. That is a feature I've wanted for a long time in my next vehicle.

    Thank you sir. I didn't realize how great of a feature it was until I started using it. The car is already a blast to drive, but this makes it so relaxing and worry-free. And saves energy in the process!

    Nice video. My wife will be happy when she gets the Model X. Her year old Ford Flex has that feature on it.

    Thank you. Sounds like this is becoming a more common feature - and with good reason!

    I gladly accept this honor. I'd like to thank Elon and Jerome for making this possible. :smile:
