I would be okay with the yoke buttons for turning signal and all those other things if they weren’t touch-sensitive buttons but rather physical buttons that you have to press to avoid accidentally presses. When videos of the MS# started popping up on YouTube every person driving it accidentally triggered a function (wiper, turning signal) when driving the car because of unintended touches to one of those buttons….this will keep happening if Tesla decides to keep that setup. I had accidental presses when driving a friend’s MS# as well.I will really miss the turn-signal stalk if it's gone. The S-Plaid uses touch-buttons on the yoke, which will be difficult to get comfortable with.
Not that I'm giving up my place in line, lol
The stalks might get in the way because of how the yoke is used for turning compared to a regular steering wheel, so if they don’t plan on bringing the stalks back at least make the buttons physical buttons you have to push in to trigger the intended action.
I slightly dislike Elon’s comment that “almost all input is error” because Tesla’s cars don’t quite yet deliver on what he is referring to where the vehicle should know what to do when needed (turn wipers on, activate turning signal, shift to drive or reverse, etc.), auto-wiper is not there yet, at least not on M3 & MY, sometimes it doesn’t activate quickly enough and when it does it doesn’t go Into the needed setting for the circumstances. I’ve driven a friend’s MS# and the auto drive/reverse is certainly impressive. So the “car should do what’s needed” is fragmented in its current state and needs further honing. I will say though, he’s in the right path because these are things that can be improved in upcoming updates, it’s just a matter of waiting but in the meantime give us physical buttons, Elon. lol His vision is full of great things but current tech is stalling his vision.
