    Most of the other Teslas forums have a similar thread regarding firmware update versions so this thread will be specific to Model 3 features that are changed or introduced with each firmware update. If you are a current owner and notice specific features that are revised or added in an update, please post it here and the Mods can update the OP to reflect this. Unfortunately, Tesla Update Notes with each download are notoriously nonspecific in regards to features that are included with updates. Some updates may have no noticeable new features and simply be bug fixes.

    OTA firmware updates do not happen with any particular rhyme or reason so it's useful to check here and see if you're running the most recent version. Although there is really no way to "force" an update, it has been suggested that parking around a Tesla service center and connecting to their wifi system sometimes can trigger an update.

    If you haven't already, please sign up to one of these websites to participate in updating your firmware version info to help the community: http://ev-fw.com/reports.php and/or the subscription site http://firmware.teslafi.com/. If you sign up for API updates, these sites will automatically register firmware updates when your vehicle receives them.

    Most recent Update Build on top with first date that the Build was reported to be installed - significant changes (if any) are listed. Builds preceded by an asterisk * and bold are Model 3 builds.

    Hi all! My car got 2017.48.6 32974c3 overnight, and I noticed that there's some new audio system options. Otherwise everything else looks the same as before. I haven't gotten to play with these new audio settings much, although going from "Off" to "High" on the Immersive Sound setting definitely made it sound more full.

    @teslarob Thanks for the update! I’ve added your build to the list. As I suspected, the M3 seems to have builds that are not on the MS/MX update sheets. The teslafi update sheet has ONE M3 registered and is the only car to have the build that you just received (they got their update on 12/14). To all current M3 owners, keep your eyes open when you get a new update and keep checking back to this thread to see any new features that you may not have found before!

    Aren't there typically viewable release notes for new builds? Or only for major releases?

    The release notes are very generic and may only mention major new features. Most of the times, it only says "This release contains minor bug fixes" when it actually has some nice goodies. That's why we want to post here to help out others and owners should check back periodically so see if they missed something.

    For example, @teslarob's update above regarding build 2017.48.6 32974c3 is in the audio settings. I don't regularly change my settings so I may have never known about the new feature. If teslarob or anyone else with the new version would care to post a screenshot of the release notes for that version, it probably doesn't say anything much. @PTFI had posted a new feature he noticed together with the audio function but I am not sure which version he was running or the exact new feature he found or else I would update it on the OP also. @RiggerJon and @Maevra have also been very helpful so hopefully they will help us keep this list updated.

    I'm really waiting for big feature updates like the Wifi, Rear Seat heaters and Automatic Wipers (which I want on my MX also)

    You seem to be a few builds behind. Me too. My MX is still on 2017.44. I tried to sit in the Tesla lot for 15 minutes yesterday to force an update with no luck. Thankfully, the newer versions don't seem to have anything major for the S/X.

    I imagine most current M3s will not get each and every update because they're coming out so quickly and because the data usage would be crazy until M3 wifi gets activated. I wonder if Tesla gets unlimited data on their cellular plans?

    Sorry, I typoed. It's 2017.48.9. (not 47.9) I corrected it in the post above.

    [​IMG]

    I should also note that the name of the car in the pic is because I tried out the "42" easter egg. Name your car 42 and that's what you get.[​IMG]

    Got it. Fixed. That's crazy that there have been 3 separate build updates in the past week for the M3.

    * 2017.48.9 cad11b5 (12/21/17)
    * 2017.48.7 93692eb (12/20/17)
    * 2017.48.6 32974c3 (12/14/17)

    This just proves that they're really pushing to get a clean version for the non-employee deliveries.

    NEW EASTER EGG!!!
    I just got 2017.50.2 on my MX.

    There is a SANTA CLAUS Easter Egg that changes the car into Santa’s Sled with falling snowflakes. Other cars now look like reindeer and when you activate the turn signal, you get ringing jingle bells!

    Santa mode can be activated through Easter Egg screen or by voice command “Ho, ho, ho”. I imagine this will also be do-able in the M3. Kids will LOVE this (or anyone young at heart)

    That button has been there for several weeks - it showed up at least two updates ago.

    Got it. I’ll move the feature to 48.7. Keep in mind the list isn’t absolute, especially at this early stage. As more people get their M3 and we have more eyes, we can a more temporaneous list.
