Tesla, why do you tease me like that?

    Just got this email today:

    Are you just trying to remind me that classic owners don't have all these new, awesome features on our cars?

    There's at least one other thread asking the same question. Yes, it's a tease by Tesla to send owners of non-AP cars such emails. They are trying to sell you a new car, after all.

    Mods, please merge...

    Well I got the email too but have yet to see the software update hit my car, at first I thought it was an email informing me my update was ready.

    Honestly I think it's an unsophisticated mass email to all owners.

    No. But like anything else some features will appeal to some folks while others to others. This one doesn't do much for me either.

    I just thought it was amusing. I'm in no way bothered by it.

    was slightly tempted by this feature, but then realized that Summon won't work for me cuz:
    1. my driveway is slightly sloped.
    2. my car is usually plugged in.

    so it's not worth the upgrade to add the AP at this time.
    for $3k I can walk to the car, even in the rain or cold.
    :tongue:

    It all does nothing for me.

    I like what it is (likely) a precursor to becoming... one day. For now, I'll settle for the notion that Tesla continues to innovate and update. That said, laser beams would have been way cooler.

    Judging by the wording, apparently Tesla no longer expects one to charge at home.

    Does nothing for me. If I want something I go get it, I don't wait for it to come to me!

    I wondered about that too. I was one of those a while back who received the email asking owners charge less at super chargers and more at home. So I have been plugging in at home every night.

    But after seeing this thread I wonder if they (Tesla) have changed their minds.

    BTW, I have received and installed 7.1 but have not received the message that started this thread.
