I Requested Tesla’s FSD Beta

Today was indeed the day. As Elon Musk had promised yesterday, there was a software update today (version 2021.32.22), which only brought a button to ask for inclusion in the Full Self Driving (FSD) beta tester program. And I pressed it and accepted the terms of use. Now I have to wait a few days to see if I have a good enough driving safety rating according to Tesla to qualify for the program.

I myself ordered the FSD feature with the purchase of my Tesla Model 3 Performance in June 2019, and drive the vehicle in the US (California). However, my software settings on the touchscreen are in German.

Here are pictures and video of what that request looked like this morning California time:


Die Kunst, wie man sich nicht entschuldigt, ist ein hehres Gut. Politiker, Manager, Kirchenvertreter und viele andere Persönlichkeiten des öffentlichen Lebens beherrschen diese Kunst in Perfektion. Korruption bei der Maskenbeschaffung? Nie passiert. Nicht genug Impfstoff? Tut uns leid, lässt sich aber nicht ändern. Milliarden mit der geplanten Autobahnmaut versenkt? Nicht meine Schuld. Was soll die ganze Aufregung?

Ab sofort erhältlich im Buchhandel, beim Verlag und bei Amazon.
