In other markets, Tesla offers “Enhanced Autopilot” as an option below “Full Self Driving”. This option offers Nav on Autopilot, Auto lane change, Autopark and Smart summon for approximately half the cost.
Full Self Driving then adds Traffic Light and Stop Sign control on top.
If this option were offered in Australia, for those that have not purchased FSD, would you buy Enhanced Autopilot?

Our October Casual Meetup will be at the 10th annual Rotary Como Car Show at Wesley College, South Perth. We have a few owners showing their cars, including Models S, 3 and X.
This year the show is on Sunday 3rd October from 10am. Public entry $10 adult, $8 concession, gold coin under 18 – all proceeds to Rotary and Wesley charities.
Feel free to pop past any time for a chat, and also to chat with the many interested members of the public that come along.It’d be great if you’re happy to stay for a bit, and give those owners bringing their cars a break to go get a coffee!

The recent update 2021.12.25.7 has an update which allows the Universal Mobile Charger (UMC) Gen 2 charger to now charge at full rated power.
Previously the 10amp and 15amp tails only actually allowed / limited to 8amp and 12amp speeds respectively. It’s now gone up to 10amps and 15amps respectively.
Great news especially for those who only use the UMC at home. The pictures show before and after the update using the same socket and charger setup. Current was 12A and is now 15A.
Note the power says 3kw in both pics because it’s rounded.
Also note that I didn’t get the higher rate straight after the update. apparently you needed to plug in the UMC for the car to communicate with the UMC to update its firmware. We got it this morning after plugging in overnight.
