MoreTesla, tracking feature requests for Tesla

Fred, a fellow member of the Tesla Silicon Valley group, has created this fantastic site to keep track of the feature requests for Tesla. Putting it up on his words “There are of course already several Tesla forums out there, but none seem to be able to keep folks on track. When the occasional feature request thread is started, 3-4 messages in the thread has usually derailed. So I set out explicitly to not create yet another forum. By limiting comments to one pretty issue and tearing them as optional explanations or clarifications, I’ve had good success keeping folks on message, i.e. kind of the opposite of YouTube comments :)”

Good job Fred!

Model 3 comes with tilt and intrusion sensor in Europe

Interior detection is required by insurances in Europe. Now we have confirmation that Model 3 brings it as well. European Model S and X had it before they offered the enhanced anti-theft in the US, so we can just assume it is just a matter of time until they offer this add-on for US Model 3s.
