So far I have only one serious complaint about the Model S: if you have the Tech Package, you can't turn off the electrochromic (auto-dimming) side mirrors. I find that, especially when it's dark and there's a car far behind me and to one side, the car lights up the dust enough on the side mirrors enough to obscure the image of the road. I've hated dimming side mirrors for years, but at least Toyotas with that feature let you turn it off. Tesla, please add a control for it.
Even better would be a separate control to set the darkness of the dimmest state separately for the rear view mirror and for the side mirrors.
Other nitpicks include:
- 67 degrees is a bit warm for the minimum cabin temperature. How about giving a temperature range setting, so the A/C comes on if the temperature exceeds the high setpoint and the heat comes on if the temperature drops below the lot setpoint? This would save power and be more comfortable.
- Every other car lets me run the front windshield and leg vents together. Why can't the Model S?
- There's no obvious way to clear browser cookies.
