Has anyone been able to confirm acceleration loss with evidence or is it more speculation/general sentiment?

There were some posts where people listed GPS timings. But I don't know how scientific the testing methodology was. But if it was correct, the cars are now slower than the 5.1s stated 0-60 times.

I'm hoping that someone will perform some more definitive tests.

So, hadn't heard that they were slower than the stated 5.1s 0-60, but rather they were slower than the experienced 4.6/4.8 second 0-60, which was historically faster than reported performance. So, I don't think it's that people are not getting what is specification from the manufacturer, but rather they are having something apparently taken AWAY that was beyond the spec the company communicated.

Aside from the alleged change in acceleration, what does this firmware update actually do? Anyone have some info?

I have severe doubts that people know how to do a proper one foot roll out 0-60 test in the first place . . .

This update changed the behavior of the cards on the lower left side of the UI, removing the windshield wiper card, which is a great update IMHO - it didn't serve a purpose other than triggering the wipers unintentionally.

Wait help me understand... the wiper card isn’t actually there unless you start the wipers with a single swipe? If so cool!

Basically the wiper speed card isn't part of the card carousel anymore, you access it by tapping on the wiper icon & the wiper speed card floats up from the bottom. Once it's up, it will auto-dismiss after a few seconds or you can down-swipe it.

Swipe right to get stats, swipe left to get status (tire pressure), so it's no longer a true carousel of cards like it was before.

I recorded a video but couldn't figure out an easy way to upload it (and not motivated to post it to Youtube etc). It's definitely a lot better solution than what was there before.

YouTube is basically the easiest way to upload a video. You just click the upload button and select the file.

you can also set up youtube videos to only be visible via a link - IE you don't have to have everything posted as publicly visible.
