I would love to see how Tesla implements this, but I have my doubts. If we all use the 'request' mechanism, then a queue of cars to send the software to develops and we're in the same position we're in now.

Actually I suspect that the vast majority of owners are not concerned with getting the latest update. So the ones who do care will probably get their updates more quickly.

I agree -- no different than Apple pushing out the latest iOS release and my mom being 5 versions back ;)
