    I want to whinge that we now have a browser in our cars. That means there is one less thing to whinge about, so its not right that tesla are diminishing the value of this thread.

    I knew I was in for a long wait when I ordered a Model 3. I never thought Tesla would launch the browser in Australia before I got it o_O

    Excellent, then I can have a whinge about the fact that I dont have a web browser and tesla have removed a feature that I was never promised or even paid for.

    Wait..Model 3 browser has been released?

    I can't believe that I don't have a web browser in my Model 3 yet!

    Oh wait, just realised I don't have my Model 3 yet.

    You know the one reserved in Apr 2016 and ordered 31st May. To be delivered in August. No VIN (removed) and no call yet.

    I would like to whinge about the absence of DAB+ on Australian Model 3s when it's enabled in the UK and Europe. I find it hard to believe that with all the production streamlining they produce versions of the car with and without the hardware so I don't understand why it's disabled here. And yes...I use it. And yes...I know about TuneIn...:confused:

    This is my whinge:
    The end game is a self driving, self sustaining means of transportation. The model 3 as well as all those preceding and following are just a huge beta excercise to get to the end game. Whatever happens in between is just pure fun for those that participate and are willing to pay the price and put up with all of Musk's idiosyncrancies, whims and peculiarities.
    The end justifies the means, so however that plays out I think we should all stop whingeing and enjoy the ride.

    I thought all the threads were whinging threads.

    Don’t be a cheapskate / environmental vandal, and buy the carbon offsets for every flight you take. Less than 1% of the cost of the airfare. That’s my whinge.

    And where’s the promised media player for Model 3. I want to be able to plug in a USB stick with MP4’s on it and play them on the big screen and with the big sound.

    I thought you can do that already...certainly in the Model S you can plug in storage and play music files...do you mean something different?

    Yes, I mean video (MP4). So one could watch movies or TV shows on the big screen and using the car audio if sitting in the car when SuperCharging or similar.

    There was an article in Electrek last year with a rumour this capability was coming... but not yet it seems.

    I read a comment years ago that Microsoft's most significant contribution to computing was how much it had lowered people's expectations around what was possible with computers. In a way, Tesla has the opposite problem

    I feel even more in the dark living in Perth waiting for an M3. Minor anxieties.
    I'm always thinking; will there be Tesla mobile service?
    Are they going to build more superchargers in SW WA? etc.
    Likely overblown and irrational concerns but anxieties nonetheless.
    Everything should be fine.

    Am in the same boat mate. You'll be right - just download Plugshare on your phone and take advantage of the RAC chargers when you can.
