NEW BLOG POST: Transforming Automotive Service

http://www.teslamotors.com/blog/transforming-automotive-service

One of my favorite parts:

"We are currently working on updates that will include a speed warning that chimes when you’re having too much fun on the highway, additional stereo system settings, and memory seat functionality. Some of these enhancements are the direct result of customer feedback. How many automakers will add new capabilities to your car after you’ve purchased it?"

This is why I love this company!

Saw that, but there was no mention in there of the actual new blog post on the Big Board ;)

Understand. So let me add *my* favorite paragraph from that blog post:

"We are currently working on updates that will include a speed warning that chimes when you’re having too much fun on the highway, additional stereo system settings, and memory seat functionality.

:-)

It *is* awesome. (And I am still successfully suppressing thoughts that keep coming to my mind about just how awesome a playground this is for some inspired hackers...)

"inspired hackers"

That sounds like the title of a thread to come. Probably some of the most inspired ones are contributors to this forum.

WooHoo!! TM took my suggestion of a settable chime when exceeding a certain speed!

From the new Blog on Service:

I had mentioned this during my test drive in Palo Alto and it's caught on "tape" on the video my wife took. I posted it to YouTube at:

I mention the idea of a "chime" at about the 7m30s mark in the video.

I can't wait for my Model S! I'm hopeful of deliver in October.

@dahtye, so you are the culprit? :)

@prash.saka....I might be...unless someone mentioned this idea before me and didn't document it.

I remember as a kid, my parents owned a Buick Riviera. There was a small knob on the speedometer that could be turned to set a speed buzzer. If the speedometer went beyond that setting, a buzzer would sound. We took several long trips while I was growing up and they had the buzzer set to maximum (100 mph, I believe). I'd hear the buzzer going off every so often when we were traveling on southwest desert highways.

Since Tesla Motor's is looking for us for some advice, I would love the camera to have Object Recognition when backing up or parking like the have on the newer BMW 7-Series. I like how it goes from yellow to red as you approach objects to make sure you aren't getting too close. Also helpful when someone just jumps behind the car.

A proximity sensor at the back is still needed.

I heard that it may already be there? How hard would it be to add it as I know I would be willing to pay for an upgrade like that!
