    Existing adaptive cruise control systems have various limitations, well described here http://www.audihelp.com/auda-58-system_limitations.html

    I've already had a couple of false BRAKES while driving the new Mazda3. It may of course not be up to Audi standards I don't know, but I'm leaving it on for now. I do believe some of you turn this feature off. I may do that too if it gives any more false positives.
    For clarity, nothing I say is advice....

    I get them in my Holden Calais too. They do your head in a bit. Pays to give cars parked on the side of the road a fairly wide berth otherwise they will trigger the system.
    One or two triggers that are unexplainable that were especially annoying. That said on the open road its a real pleasure to use. Just hit the adaptive cruise button, crank the stereo up, relax and enjoy.

    Can I ask what your end game is for holding of Tesla? Hold and sell when the price hits $500/600/700? Or are you holding out for a dividend? Having done quite a bit of reading from both sides of the fence (google TSLAQ for the opposing view) and I am pretty skeptical about the long term viability of Tesla. Their CEO cannot be trusted but it seems the hype of all the fans speaks louder than the underlying company financial position. This is typical Elon pumping up the stock before the inevitable capital raise. Lets see how long till the next.

    Plan to hold for as long as the Gigafactories push out the numbers.... demand for their cars are there. Their market cap and SP dont make sense at this point I must admit but they are selling lots of cars while others are declining. They are miles ahead in the EV space regardless of what others may think. Moving into the chipset space is other big draw for me. Planning to put in my order this year as well. I have been holding since low-mid 100's

    K14, May I suggest you look up CNBC's interview of Ron Barron re Tesla, 30 approx. long and very informative .

    Don't know how old you are but I remember the dot.com craze of 20 years ago like it was yesterday. I think every 15-20 years or so another generation of investors comes along that thinks they have figured out new metrics and ways of valuing companies. This is very much looking like the dot.com craze of 2000 and we all know how that ended.

    All it takes is some other manufacturer to come out with a new battery technology that's superior, patent their invention and the house of cards will come tumbling down.

    If that doesn't happen then there's all the established vehicle manufactures coming out with competing product. EXTREMLY high risk at the current price in my opinion.

    Caveat Emptor

    May aswell ride it if you can!

    Although I agree valuations feel stretched, we are no where near the dotcom level mania yet. The whole nasdaq doubled in in approx 6 months didn't it? We're up around 50% over the last 12 months.
    By the way - it's upside_down, not upside_umop

    I think we're getting there. TINA, (There is no alternative to stocks) is seeing to that and people are putting some interesting prices on stocks with no reliable history of earnings.

    Old hands like Whatsup should realise something is up and following a sea of crazed silicon valley money rushing headlong into tech might not be the best idea for 2020.

    But wait there's more !! https://www.cnbc.com/2020/01/14/ark-...per-share.html

    Tesla analyst says its going to $6,000. Better BUY then, what could possibly go wrong

    $6,000 !!!

    To the moon!! oops I mean to the asteroid belt

    Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster, which launched on top of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy earlier today, is going farther out into the Solar System than originally planned. The car was supposed to be put on a path around the Sun that would take the vehicle out to the distance of Mars’ orbit. But the rocket carrying the car seems to have overshot that trajectory and has put the Tesla in an orbit that extends out into the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter
