How does this firmware affect my 2018 Model X? Any improvements for older Teslas? I see people constantly bragging about Tesla getting better with time, but seems like total BS when updates like this don't do anything for "older" models.

Probably won't at all. I installed it on my 2018 Model X last night. The API reports my charge at 91% with a range of
256.43. That makes it at ~281.79 at 100%.

Otherwise, the notes are the same as part of the past 2020.4.x updates, so likely just bug fixes.

I agree that they should be clear on which years are affected. They make it should like all MS's are affected even though they use a later model to explain the range increase. Not sure if our Sept 2017 90D will be affected.

I hear you. My 2016 Model S is horrible on Range... I had 68 miles showing on it the other morning and I had to go pick up something just 13 miles away. (26 miles round trip) It was 35 degrees and my range is so bad I did not even turn the heat on because I was scared I might not make it back. Turns out I made it back with 1 mile left. Seems that I get less than 50% of the posted range when its cold.
