    @cinergi - Thanks for the video. Great review of v.4 and helpful insight which will prepare us all for its release.

    Sounds like a memory bug.

    I'd rather have an over-the-air update from the manufacturer than have the dealer update it. The mechanics have no clue about firmware or software and will take short-cuts to get it over with faster because their salary and bonus depending on the number of cars per day. At least with over-the-air it's consistent. And I don't think for a minute that the quality of software is less. In fact, more frequent updates means each update is smaller so there is less chance of something going wrong. It's far easier to debug 100 lines of code than it is 100,000.
    1. Do not copy anything that I post outside of the TMC forum without permission.
    2. Any advice or opinions posted here are to be taken as my personal opinions only. There is no implied warranty, fitness for purpose, or official statements from any company I may have been or am affiliated with.
    3. Even the best recommendations are wrong when used inappropriately.

Tesla have passed it on to engineering and a Ranger is dropping by on Sunday to hear for himself whether it's actually coming from the lights or the speakers. I can survivs with the ambient lights turned off for a couple of nights.
    Both my brother and I have this problem. Neither of us have v4.0. We notified our service tech a couple weeks ago, so I know Tesla is aware of this.

    Cinergi - another epic, 25 minute instructional video. Awesome.

    However, I noticed that my door handles are NOT self-extending, and that the voice commands are not working at all. Very frustrated. I called Tesla Service, and they reminded me that, well, I have not received my car yet and that I am still driving a 2001 Volvo with 192,000 miles. My bluetooth is not pairing either. Dunno.

    You made me spit my coffee. Fortunately I wasn't actually drinking any at the time.

    Such unrestricted updates concern me as this is something that will only grow across all vendors. If it doesn't concern someone else, I understand even if I don't agree.
    +1. I've not dealt with software that could kill anyone (I did have a developer have a stroke during a scrum once, however), but independent QA is truly the way to go. For all we know this does happen, and it is just not talked about by Tesla. Perhaps they could put out a blog post on how they test, and what graceful fail and emergency kill systems are in place?
