    For those that are thinking about buying but aren't sure, what one new feature / improvement would you push you over the edge (in a good way)?

    I'm not likely to buy, but it is still a mystery to me why MX has towing capability, M3 is supposed to have towing, but the MS -- zero.

    When did you place your 75D order? Or when was it officially confirmed? I noticed in your signature you are expecting a 9/16 delivery?

    Or did you get it September 2016?.

    More realistic price say £55k for a S75D in UK. Current prices are unrealistic cf second hand Model S cars.

    Perhaps the most important new feature is missing from this list - and the feature that almost held us back from ordering our S 100D earlier this year...
    • Supercharger V3 support - with charging times reduced down to 5-10 minutes
    If Tesla really is able to reduce the charging times down to close to the time typically spent at a gas station pumping and waiting for a pump, that would have a huge impact, especially for road trips.

    by upgraded center console, I'm thinking... all the function on it too, including the UI

    that needs work ... it's the most ignored part of the car within the Tesla barnyard

    I actually enjoy stopping every 2 hours or so for a coffee and leg stretch - in my old ICE cars it was tempting to keep on driving which could be unsafe.

    scottm, the feature we most want added to our two Model S cars - is better software. Software that lacks the obvious design flaws and bugs in the current software - and apps that have more mature functionality, instead of the bare bones apps we have that look nice but lack obvious features (after 5 years, we still don't have waypoints???).

    So I'm assuming Tesla will eventually get around to fixing their software - or risk losing a lot of customers once someone else gets a competitive long range EV on the market (which isn't the Bolt).

    Of course, we're assuming Tesla will actually be able to achieve Full Self-Driving with the AP2 hardware - if not, then that would move to #1 on my hardware list, followed by Supercharger V3 ultra fast charging.

    The ability to watch a video on the screen when stopped (i.e. Charging!)

    Video on the screen will be coming - especially when Tesla gets closer to FSD, because once they've received approval to allow cars to be driven using FSD, the restriction on video while the car in motion should be lifted, since the person in the driver's seat won't actually be driving, so the restriction on video seen by the driver will no longer be relevant.

    I very much doubt it. The person in the driving seat will always need to be alert and will be required to take over if necessary.

    I'm talking about video whilst parked. Like charging.
