That joke died with the bridge, fortunately. They replaced it with a much newer one that seems a lot less likely to ice over.

Seems buying a used Tesla is not a good idea:

One of the less-considered side effects of car features moving from hardware to software is that important features and abilities of a car can now be removed without any actual contact with a given car. Where once de-contenting involved at least a screwdriver (or, if you were in a hurry, a hammer), now thousands of dollars of options can vanish with the click of a mouse somewhere. And that’s exactly what happened to one Tesla owner, and, it seems many others.

I read the whole thing plus the associate reddit and I feel the reseller isn't being completely honest about the car features as stated from Tesla when he got the car. The jalopnik article was also updated to state that the feature was already removed before the sale to the end costumer, which knew something was on.

I'll quote a Reddit post that got it right:
I think this is complicated and everything rests on whether or not the Monroney sticker that Tesla had on the car is a binding and if the auction house should have simply recycled that sticker. It was probably an oversight by the auction house as they did not purchase the options therefore making the sticker obsolete.

Would be less of a problem if Tesla updated the car faster but STILL a problem since even if they did, the sticker that the auction house used would have been inaccurate. The exact purchase agreement, listing all charges/options would be found in the motor vehicle purchase agreement between Tesla and the auction house.

The point is that Tesla can remove a feature that came with the car. I could understand if it was a service you subscribed to, but not something that was on the car at some point (Tesla's audit result acknowledges as much).

I was wondering why you were posting a video of how to make an IED. And then I watched it. Those old Nokia's are tough =D>
