    Hello Folks!

    Brand new Tesla owner and hoping for some advice / recommendation from you experts! My Tesla is about a week old and I have noticed 2 odd things I am hoping you can provide some insight to.

    New Model S 75
    Firmware v8.1 (2017.36 1b27c6d)
    "Enhanced Autopilot" purchased with car which I believe equates to AP2.0
    Premium upgrade package purchased with car

    Two items I noticed:
    1) Autopilot seems drunk sometimes.
    I will be driving down the freeway in the fast lane with Autopilot enabled. The lane will be completely straight (no curves, no odd lines) and the Autopilot will be swaying left and right in the lane. A nice slow sway back and forth as if the car had one too many drinks. I have consistently noticed this as the Autopilot picks up speed around 65MPH+ on the freeway and seems to be reproducible on almost any freeway at higher speeds. Curious if this is a Norm to Autopilot or if something may be off that I should have Service check into?

    2) Bluetooth.
    Whenever I first get into the MS and my phone auto connects to bluetooth. Any initial calls made or received have no Audio. The call will be active, the caller can hear me, the car and my phone show the call as active, both the car and the phone are not on mute... however there is no audio in the car over the speakers and I am unable to hear the caller. The only way for the audio to come through the speakers is for me to disconnect my phone via the bluetooth menu on the MS and then reconnect my phone. Additionally, after this occurs the audio (music) in the car refuses to play as well until I toggle back and forth between the Radio and Streaming.

    This occurs with both my personal phone and company phone (both iPhone 7 - one running iOS 11, and the other iOS 10.x).

    Thanks in advance for any advise!
