Tesla should have a site where Tesla owners can request features & all owners can upvote their favorite requests/features. Similar to Teslas earnings call questions process on SAY where the top voted questions get asked, every quarter the top owner voted feature would be made. Obviously the feature requests would have to be within reason and not too take away too much from Teslas other projects, but think it could be a cool concept and something Tesla could do. Thoughts @elonmusk?

BREAKING: The Oklahoma House has passed bill 3994 tonight, with all 11 members voting in favor of it.

The passing of this bill is unfortunately expected to not only force Tesla to close their service centers, but also stop Tesla from being able to sell in the state.

1/4 Tesla had sent out a mass email about 2 weeks ago encouraging Tesla fans to contact their local officials to vote no, but it looks like those efforts were ultimately unsuccessful.

This presumably blocks everyone like Canoo, Lucid, Rivian, Fisker and Polestar as well.
