First of all, I am the biggest Teslavangelist on the planet, however, I just learned of something that is extremely troubling.
Earlier, I posted:
"this is (a) near major issue; at night, I'm not getting good illumination as I make a right hand turn...I mean, it's nearly BLACK until I complete the turn and drive head on. Anyone else experiencing this?"
To my shock and awe, another forum member informed us that the LED Cornering Lights are an optional upgrade (with the Tech Package). This has to change THIS AFTERNOON.
I pause before every night time drive because of this serious safety issue. Tesla should not be asking me or anyone to 'pay up' for the safest driving experience. In no other car have I experienced the sideview 'blackout' that I've experienced with my Model S.
If you can corroborate my struggle, please post here asap and let's get this issue in Elon's twitter feed asap.
