“In an Edmunds scorecard for 2020 Top Best EV of the Year, the M3’s UI received the lowest score. According to Edmunds, the M3’s MCU was deemed a safety hazard based on the potential distractions for the driver while operating the vehicle”.
The update is moving quickly through the fleet, and is much needed as the Tesla UI has the most potential of any modern vehicle. The platform can only improve from here.
