The Model S is the best car I've ever driven, period. Not even a competition. That thing is fantastic. Unfortunately it was a bit of a stretch price-wise, which is why I settled for the IS350. ...

The update is them plugging something into the USB port and running the update. They shouldn't even be near those two spots that are now marked up on his car. That sucks.
