How many times have you guys gotten Over The Air Updates in a year and what exactly did they improve with them? I hear we have to bring the car in to service for them to do the OTAs?

So the way it works is simple: maps, non-critical parts of infotainment system are done OTA. I regularly receive map updates, as an example (not sure what for, I do not use inbuilt navigation)
Everything critical to the operation of the car as a whole will be done on site at dealership using standard offline flashing process.

I am looking forward to having Sirius XM radio again in my car and Carplay on my screen. 2 things i missed since getting a Tesla Model Y. I cant believe they never included Sirius xm with the car

That always bugged me with my MS. Just an absurd oversight which they blamed on the panoramic glass roof.

My Model S has Sirius XM. No Carplay, but it does have Spotify, and Tesla's streaming App

So one problem. I plugged in the cable into my NEMA 14-50 plug and it’s not charging on its own. Am I missing something here?

Another thing to check - what is the battery status, i.e., charge level? The level is limited to 80% if memory serves right, so it will not pick up more charge if it is at 80% or higher.

You are correct that was it. I still had more than 80% battery

First scary moment is gone ;) I would not charge it past 80% for every day usage. No point in that. I try to keep battery level around 60% with shallow charging for daily commute. It seems to preserve battery capacity best, just FYI

I typically keep in a similar range. Going to 100% is bad for the battery (as is going really low). I like to make sure I always have at least 50% in case of an emergency. I wouldn't want to bleed out in the garage while waiting for the car to charge! You might want to give the RecurrentAuto.com site a visit. It has a couple of really interesting articles about how charging/discharging affects the integrity of the battery.

Anyone know if the seats on the premium plus are leather or fake leather.
ElectricRider, I found this in a 2019 review on https://cars.usnews.com/cars-trucks/audi/e-tron/2019/interior:
‘This Audi seats five people on standard leather upholstery. Power-adjustable, heated and ventilated front seats are standard too. Upgraded leather seats, massaging front seats, and heated rear seats are available.’

Here‘s another from Car & Driver, 2021 Audi e-tron Review, Pricing, and Specs:
‘We like the price point of the entry-level Premium trim level, and pairing it with the sleeker Sportback helps the e-tron garner more attention. This combination benefits from upscale standard features such as 20-inch wheels, blind-spot monitoring, heated front seats, four-zone climate control, leather upholstery, and a panoramic sunroof.’

So yes, our cars do have leather seating. So far I’m finding the seats very comfortable.
