I've been following the Model-S for a few years now and saw the car for the first last week. As a result I have a few questions:
1. Will there still be a central range of buttons for "emergency lights", high-beams, etc? What about rolling down my window etc? I don't want to have to navigate the center screen to find functions such as these.
2. The GPS system uses WiFi... so, what if I'm driving somewhere that doesn't have a good signal? Will I loose my GPS, and radio, etc? or can I download maps for use when I'm disconnected.
3. People say that the service work etc will be less as a result of less parts, but what about the price of the new technology parts that break... ie: the accelerometer that triggers the brake-lights on regenerative breaking, or the 17" screen, or the custom calipers etc?
4. I noticed the mirror wasn't fancy, ie: no auto dimming, no home connect for garage door opening etc? Comparing against a luxury car I wonder if they've gone high-end on some things but gone cheap on the obvious? IE: active dampening suspension, back-up sensors, auto parking, what-about headlights that turn slightly as you go around a bend (forgot what car does this or what its called).
Just some questions for thought... It looks like a great car, and I hope one ends up in my drive-way.
