Tesla 5.8 Firmware Update rolling out to Model S owners just 10 days after 5.6

Tesla-model-S-5.8-firmware

Tesla updated my, as well as many other, Model S cars this weekend with the 5.8 firmware.  5.8 doesn’t seem to be a big update from 5.6 that I got just 10 days ago. Some drivers have reported:

* A wipers service mode. Who would’ve know? 🙂
* A reset TPMS button. Nice.
* MAC Address display in Wifi settings. Who was it again asking for this to setup their router’s MAC filter?
+ all the goodies which were already in 5.6, of course.

Also – it seems to accelerate a little smoother all of a sudden but that’s likely just me being overly sensitive.
