    I dropped off my MS at the SvC this morning to have a couple small issues looked at. When I went back this afternoon, I was talking to the tech about the car and got on the subject of firmware. I asked him if my car had the latest version (I knew it didn't). While he was looking at my logs, I mentioned that I thought I was on 12 and that 16 was the latest or maybe even 18. He said that 18 was due out soon but that they were all waiting on 20. He said that 20 is supposed to be a big update to "fix all" the issues that have been cropping up lately. I guess we have something to look forward to now!

    Wait until 24, it will fix what 20 creates.

    Hate to break the bad news, but you have EAP. :/

    2018.20 will be the bomb or will be a bomb. One step forward and two steps back.

    Same as it ever was.

    After *.20 emerges, 2/3 of owners won’t get it for 4-6 months.

    Situation is past ridiculous.

    Or very much in need of improvement.

    Pick yer poison.

    While I appreciate all the premature excitement, I don't think any of the techs have any idea whatsoever about when an update is coming, or what will be included in it. All of the techs I've talked to are always optimistic about software update fixes, because they are dealing with folks complaining about software issues all day / every day. Of course they will tell you the next one is the "big one", and that it will fix everything. They mean well, and customer relations is a large part of their job. However, based on my experience receiving updates over the course of 2-1/2 years in 2 different vehicles, that "big one that fixes everything" update has never happened - not even once.

    I'll be happy if my steering wheel heats, my premium sound system quality returns, and AP2 doesn't regress with the next update...

    Would you consider a blue pony instead?

    Aka *.20.1

    If my expectations were any lower at this point, they’d need a shovel and a source of breathable air.

    Some say the P85+ with AP1 was the best unicorn Tesla ever made. May be some truth to that, and that vintage of firmware.

    The new cars have many more cameras and sensors and MCU2. And it’s mid-2018. Still missing - the “E” in EAP, any vestige of FSD, and the techs, bless their hearts, are looking forward to a bug fix release.

    Upon second thought, perhaps a herd of blue ponies would be in order.

    After all, it would be impolite to not bring enough for everybody.

    You'll have to wait for a leap year.

    I wish! Unless you somehow got into my car software and installed it for me!

    Tesla offers us an Employee Assistance Plan (EAP)? ;)

    I think he misspoke. My understanding is the "fix all" for recent problems is 2020.18, not 2018.20. :rolleyes:

    Oh for... more random BS from an SC tech? :D Can we flair this ‘rumor’ (is what I’d say on reddit)?

    I’ve never had any prediction or recommendation come true or be true from the SC. Sorry.

    Whether or not the tech knows anything, he did specially say the 18 was coming out soon but that they were all waiting for 20. And that 20 was supposed to be a big “fix all” update.

    Knowing the “week 18” update would be coming out in week 18 of the calendar year probably shouldn’t be heralded as a great insight into the inner workings of Tesla.
