    Also, I expect that the audio formats that lean more toward the Apple side (such as AAC) are more likely than the Microsoft side (such as WMA). In fact I think someone mentioned that AAC is or will be supported.
    I was told by a Tesla employee that although WAV is not listed on thier website in the Model S specs as supported that it is in fact supported. This is after the Tesla employee checked with corporate. I was also told FLAC is not supported. (BTW, I'm the TMC member Larry referenced above )

    I know Tesla said they wouldn't support FLAC, but come-on Tesla.. You will have the quietest cabin in a premium sedan class. Why only WAV???

    Brianman, if you have a FLAC file, and time to test it, it would be interesting to test it none-the-less.

    I just sent an e-mail to Tesla Motors requesting for FLAC support. If you guys seriously want FLAC, I recommend you do the same.

    At Home With Elon Musk: The (Soon-to-Be) Bachelor Billionaire - Forbes
    As he drives to work—his Montblanc aviators, retrieved from the floor of the Lotus-bodied coupe, perched on his nose—we talk about his favorite drives (he favors Highway 1, unsurprisingly), his favorite music (when not rocking to Robbie Williams, he’s more a Beatles-and–Pink Floyd classic-rock man), and his favorite cars (the 1967 Jag E-Type is “like a bad girlfriend—very dysfunctional”).
    Sounds like Pink Floyd might be a good choice for source material. I'll grab one of the tracks from Dark Side of the Moon.

    + 1 on FLAC. Or worst case an app that can handle it.

    I just want good bluetooth a2dp support, everything i listen to is on my phone and for audiobooks I only want one current play position.

    Has anyone seen/tried the bluetooth audio support?

    I don't know, but having an on board flash drive for mp3's seems to be so antiquated. Early 2000 VW's had an optional hard drive where the old multi-disc CD changer were located. Seems like a waste to me. I have all my music (more than 500) on my iPhone. I have no intention of uploading only some of my songs to its limited storage capacity. Just put in a 30 pin connector (like in the Roadster) or an option to connect any smart phone and leave that choice to the consumer. I know that there will be bluetooth for streaming audio but installing flash memory looks to me like an added expense that Tesla didn't need to include. It feels like if Apple kept 3.5 floppy drives in the iMac.

    Oh and to the OP, I like AAC better than mp3 as a format and it is supported by the Model S.

    On a long drive, playing from the car's flash drive means that you don't have to have your phone plugged in to keep it charged. Because a lot of car chargers cause the "charger is incompatible" message intermittently, and also cause the phone's battery to heat up way more than the 120V charger, it seems like a reasonable plan both for convenience and cellphone battery life--both kinds of battery life. (I am so looking forward to not having to plug the phone into the cassette adapter.)
