Tesla's FSD Beta v11.3.2 is now rolling out with version 2022.45.11. When Tesla rolls out a new beta update, it usually goes out to employees and then original beta testers, but we're seeing this update going out much more widely than in previous releases.

Earlier this week, Elon Musk tweeted that "V11 starts going wide this weekend," a timeline that some questioned. However, in the early hours of Sunday morning, FSD Beta has now started going out 'wide'.

It's not clear how wide this beta has gone yet, but it has already been sent to many more users than v11.3.1 had according to our statistics. Tesla will likely continue to expand this beta to more owners in the coming hours or days.

Musk had earlier predicted that it would be v11.3.2 that would go to the wider group, but with v11.3.1 doing so well, it was starting to look like it would be that version to go out more widely.

What's New

For the most part, the release notes for FSD Beta v11.3.2 are the same as FSD Beta v11.3.1, however there is one notable addition to the release notes of v11.3.2.

Tesla has adjusted the position of the blind spot camera while FSD Beta is active so that it doesn't cover up the vehicle visualizations. As Tesla says, if you prefer to have the camera feed on top of the visualizations, you can move it back and it'll remember your preference:

- Adjusted position of Automatic Blind Spot Camera when FSD Beta is active to prioritize the Autopilot visualization. Drag the camera to save custom positions.

This is the only change in the release notes from the previous v11.3.1 beta, however, there are likely other bug fixes and improvements under the hood.

If you're on one of the 10.69.x versions like 99% of beta users, then you'll receive all of these features below and much more.

New in FSD Beta V11

Besides the big feature of FSD Beta use on the highway, Tesla has also redesigned the Autopilot menu to remove older options and make your options clearer. At the very top, Tesla now gives owners three options for Autopilot features: Traffic-Aware Cruise Control (TACC), Autosteer, or FSD Beta. Autosteer is essentially Basic Autopilot, which will keep the vehicle's speed, and brake, keep a proper following distance, and steer within the vehicle's lane. FSD Beta is the option you'll want if you want the vehicle to make lane changes to follow your route.

FSD Beta v11.3.2 also introduces a new shortcut for some Autopilot options. When tilting the right scroll wheel, you'll now be presented with a new set of options. They'll allow you to adjust the vehicle's FSD Profile between Chill, Average, and Assertive. You'll also have the option to enable 'Minimal Lane Changes' with this shortcut quickly. The option will only stay enabled for the current drive.

Another significant addition is voice drive-notes. The software now allows for instant driver feedback. If you must take control away from FSD, a prompt will ask you to explain what happened. You can leave an audio recording. For example, if the software says it is stopping for a red light, but you see the light is green, you can take over and tell Tesla what happened so their team can review it.

Watch for Visual Enhancements

The update brings with it several significant improvements, including new visualizations and features that enhance the driving experience. One of the most noticeable changes in FSD v11.3.2 is the new visualizations. The vehicle's path is now a much thicker line, representing the entire space the car currently occupies and will occupy in the immediate future.

Chevrons will also appear in the path to show the car slowing down. A white or black line will now appear before the Tesla to tell the supervising driver exactly where the car will stop.

The traffic lights will now sometimes appear blue, indicating that the vehicle obeys that traffic light. Tesla has also improved how the system identifies objects more accurately.

One of the most exciting new features in FSD v11.3.2 is the addition of FSD messages. These messages let the driver know what the vehicle is doing. If the software spots an intersection and a red light, it will say, "stopping for the red light."

It will display various messages that make it clear what the vehicle is stopping or waiting for, such as stop signs, crossing pedestrians, bicyclists, and more. This addition gives us a better look into what the software is doing.

It's unclear whether the improvements to automatic emergency braking included in the FSD Beta v11.3 release notes are in the update right now. However, Tesla's continued progress with Full Self-Driving technology is clear. With each update, the company moves closer to its goal of producing fully autonomous vehicles and a more sustainable future.

A Trip Down Memory Lane: The Electrifying Rivalry Between Elon Musk and Jeremy Clarkson [Video]

The automotive world has witnessed many rivalries throughout history, but none quite as electrifying as the ongoing feud between Tesla CEO Elon Musk and British television presenter Jeremy Clarkson. These two larger-than-life personalities have consistently butted heads over electric vehicles, Tesla's performance, and the future of transportation. Let's take a trip down memory lane and relive some of the most memorable moments from this epic battle of wits and opinions.

The Spark That Ignited the Feud

It all began in 2008, when Clarkson, then a host of the popular British television show Top Gear, reviewed Tesla's first production car (video below), the Roadster. In Season 12, Episode 7, Clarkson was critical of the Roadster's range and reliability, with the segment featuring the car running out of battery and breaking down. Tesla quickly claimed that the breakdown was staged for dramatic effect, a claim that BBC denied.

The Aftermath and Legal Action

Tesla didn't take Clarkson's review lightly. In 2011, the electric car manufacturer filed a lawsuit against BBC, alleging defamation and malicious falsehood. However, the British High Court dismissed the case in 2013, with the judge stating that no Top Gear viewer would have reasonably compared the Roadster's performance to that of a traditional sports car based on the episode.

The War of Words

The legal battle didn't put an end to the rivalry. Over the years, Musk and Clarkson exchanged barbs through interviews and social media. In a 2018 interview with The Independent, Clarkson called Musk "an idiot" and claimed they "almost had a fight." In response, Musk took to Twitter and called Clarkson "weird" and "rude." In 2021, Clarkson talked about Musk's kids' unique names and suggested he call them "John or Jane or whatever."

The Twitter Battle

The rivalry between Musk and Clarkson has expanded beyond the realm of electric vehicles. Recently, Clarkson shared his thoughts on Musk's new Twitter laws and claimed that the new CEO should be paying him to use the social media network. In his Sunday Times column, Clarkson expressed his outrage at the proposed new costs for blue tick verification. He argued that he brings in advertising for the platform and should not be paying for the verification. This latest episode showcases the enduring feud between these two influential figures.

The Autopilot Debate

Clarkson has also criticized Tesla's Autopilot feature, questioning its safety and reliability. He once called it "an accident waiting to happen" after a fatal accident involving a Tesla Model S operating on Autopilot in 2016. However, Musk has dismissed Clarkson's concerns as biased and uninformed, insisting that critics have an outdated view of electric vehicles and are resistant to change.

The Model X Review and Beyond

Despite his new-found popularity, Clarkson didn't shy away from critiquing Tesla. In a 2019 episode of The Grand Tour, he reviewed the Tesla Model X, acknowledging its advancements while questioning its design and practicality. Clarkson said, "The truth is, the world's most hated car company has changed the world," but he also questioned whether electric vehicles would ever fully replace internal combustion engine cars.

The Grand Tour and Clarkson's Farm

After leaving Top Gear, Clarkson and co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May launched The Grand Tour on Amazon Studios. The show continued to feature Tesla vehicles and maintain a critical stance on electric cars. However, Clarkson's image softened with the release of his show Clarkson's Farm, which showcased his love for farming and the challenges he faced in running a farm. The show garnered a new fan base and a more sympathetic public image, but he still prefers internal combustion.


In a surprising twist, Elon Musk appeared on Top Gear in 2020, discussing Tesla's progress and the future of electric vehicles with the show's presenters. Though Clarkson was not involved in the episode, the appearance marked a notable moment in the rivalry's history.

The ongoing feud between Elon Musk and Jeremy Clarkson is a fascinating chapter in the automotive world. As electric vehicles become increasingly popular, the rivalry between these two influential figures serves as a reminder of the broader debate surrounding the future of transportation. With the latest development involving Twitter, it's clear that their rivalry continues to evolve and shows no signs of slowing down. Fans of both individuals can only wait and see what the next chapter holds for this electrifying tale.

The Tesla community is always exploring their vehicle, and lucky for us, they share what they find. For example, a recent discovery by a Reddit user Ultimate_Bulter has revealed an undocumented update in Tesla's latest software version, 2023.6.8. The user found a hidden icon labeled 'Manual' in the vehicle's infotainment center, leading to Tesla tips and the Tesla User Manual App, which was added in the 2023.6 update.

This app does more than merely open the in-car manual; it offers an interactive guide for common questions for Tesla owners.

Two Sections

The Tesla Manual App is divided into two sections: "Get to Know Your Tesla" and "Owner's Manual." The former is an interactive guide designed to help Tesla owners become more familiar with their vehicle's features, while the latter contains detailed information on every aspect of the car.

Get to Know Your Tesla

"Get to Know Your Tesla" contains popular topics related to the vehicle's features, functionality, and maintenance. This section is designed to be an interactive and user-friendly way for new and existing Tesla owners to familiarize themselves with their car's features. It includes buttons that, when pressed, can perform actions such as opening the glovebox or activating the windshield wipers. This innovative approach helps users quickly understand and navigate their vehicle's numerous features.

Owner's Manual

The "Owner's Manual" section of the app offers a comprehensive guide to every aspect of the car. This portion of the app includes in-depth information on everything from vehicle maintenance to troubleshooting and beyond. Tesla owners can access this section to find answers to their questions and better understand their car's various systems and components. The vehicle's user manual was already available in the car through Controls > Service > Owner's Manual, but linking to it through this new app makes it more discoverable.

Undocumented Update

The Tesla User Manual App's inclusion in the 2023.6.8 update appears to have gone undocumented, as it was not listed in the official release notes. This has led to speculation that the app was meant to be a surprise or "Easter egg" feature for Tesla owners to discover. The Reddit user's discovery has since been met with excitement and appreciation from the Tesla community, who have praised the app for its interactive and user-friendly design.

The Tesla User Manual App offers a fresh and innovative approach to vehicle user guides, taking advantage of the car's advanced infotainment system. This app's interactive nature allows Tesla owners to familiarize themselves with their vehicle's features and troubleshoot issues more efficiently.

As more users uncover this hidden gem within their Tesla, it is expected Tesla will continue to add tips to the manual app. This discovery highlights Tesla's commitment to providing a unique and cutting-edge experience for its customers, even in the most unexpected places.

Recently Tesla updated it's owner's manual with updated recommendations on the weight limits for items in the frunk and trunk. The new limits apply to all vehicles and went up in most cases.
