As a M3 owner with FSDC but no access to the beta; agrees Advanced Autopilot, or Copilot is the best description they could offer. Still probably worth the money given what it can and can't do.

They definitely trapped themselves with an "overpromise but underdeliver" situation; despite rolling billions into R&D, the best they can hope for is "safer than the average driver", which is not good enough for regulators, therefore the general public to trust.

I think with "Advanced Autopilot" they could have dodged much of the negative press, and publicised a "roadmap to FSD" as part of the advertisements; they'd be in the clear with the language, probably still behind schedule, but have much better consumer and regulatory confidence.

Subtractively further: think of all the time and fuel saved by not moving paint around, or having to make the paint in the first place. The war machine can become unnervingly efficient when it needs to.
