    But hallelujah I will look forward to "Driver Mode" until some users let us know that it doesn't apply to Classics like my car! :(

    I wonder if the "Driver Mode" will have a seamless and elegant way of engaging and disengaging. I hope so.

    Interesting stuff... I hope the additions to auto park include pulling in forward AND backing in reverse... :)

    No I mean something like using the Ultrasonic sensors to determine how many people are approaching the car and from which doors and open only the appropriate doors automatically. :D

    I'm curious, what's the requirement for "driver mode"? Is it a personal safety thing or something? As you might guess, I couldn't care less whether all four of my handles extend or not.

    Can't wait until we see screenshots of the new UI changes.

    It might cut back on moments like these depending on timing...

    It is personal safety. It is an old request from a few users.
    Tesla (sometimes) listens to its user's request. :)

    You don't mind if homeless people enter your car from the other side when you're travelling and have to make a stop somewhere?

    I'm liking the sound of UI improvements. Any idea what those entail?

    I try not to travel places where a homeless person would try to enter my car while I'm stopped.

    I don't think there will be any UI improvements in the early beta. It sounds more like they are testing changes/restrictions to AP

    Sources are already reporting UI changes such as trucks and motorcycles rendering on the IC.....

    Exactly! If the environment is really that menacing, it's still menacing even with three out of four door handles retracted.
