Just picked up my MY23 reordered car yesterday.
Car Land vehicle Vehicle Automotive parking light Vehicle registration plate


Some of the observations about the MY23 models with Pilot Lite:
  • we do get DAB+ in Australia
  • AVAS is working fine and is kinda loud (the way it should be)
  • we definitely get the knightrider like taillight animation
  • the internet connection seems to be better in the car than my phone. I am with Optus as well but in the basement I get a very faint signal on the phone but I can easily sit in my apartment and use the app to check the location, send commands to lock/unlock, check battery status, etc.
Also as mentioned in a lot of the other threads the AutoNexus finish on the car is not good. It is better to get the car professionally done. The car was not as bad as some other owners have had but it is enough that I can see some water marks and swirls on the paint.

I am starting this thread so that people can ask me any questions about the Australian MY23 version that people might have. I only have the Pilot Lite pack, with the Zinc cloth seats and 19" wheels and so cannot answer anything about the Plus or Performance packs.

Ok mine definitely doesn't do that 馃槀

This will be partially due to the location and type of antenna. Higher gain, and mounted on top of the vehicle means it will get signal further than your phone does. That said, I do think there might be some wiggle room around the edges with the fact that it is not Optus, but rather Singtel roaming on Optus. A week or 2 ago there was a major Optus outage affecting all towers within about 10km of where I was, wife's phone on Optus was SOS, eCall button in car was flashing red, and no bars on the centre screen with an X, after about 30 seconds the eCall light went white, and 20 seconds after that AAOS had working data, wife's phone remained dead as a doornail

Congratulations, so happy for you. A long, long saga finally over and you can actually start to enjoy the car. Re: AVAS, Can you turn it off, like you can with Rear Auto Break?

Thank you. Yes all those ordering pains seem to go away as I drove the car.

Cannot turn off AVAS. That is a safety requirement.

Oh also noticed one weird thing. If I am sitting in the car and the car is not in gear then turning on the hazards doesn't make any sound inside the car or show the lights in the display. So you have no indication that the hazards have turned on or not unless you go outside and check it. If the car is in gear then it makes the sound as well.

Awesome to see it in your hands finally. And you even had time to post some updates on it. Congrats mate, very happy for you! Hope you slept well since!

Mine is still scheduled for 04-Oct, so I can't wait. Just that suddenly there's a bunch of paperwork as Polestar Finance and Polestar Australia realised that there is still stuff they need me to do for the finance. All happening while I'm currently interstate in QLD (and Qantas having lost my luggage too!)

No idea what ship it was on. I got the ship has set sail email on the 28th and then the VIN showed on on CEVA on the 29th. So maybe Paglia, or Morning Crystal, or Paganella. Could be any of them.

Well I have time for updates because I am also partially down with the flu. Great time to get sick, a week before we fly out.
Hope they sort out the finance for you soon and don鈥檛 delay the handover. Time to buy new clothes and send the bill to Qantas. :)

Heyyy big congrats on the handover!

One thing I was curious on the MY23 was the inclusion of interior door handle lights and door bin lights for the non-plus cars? Let us know if this is actually the case :)

** oh and would also be good to know if below door puddle lights are present on the front / back on the non-plus. I believe should be front only?

Thank you. I don鈥檛 think there are any lights there but I will check and confirm.

Drove a bit today and car is a dream to drive. Weather has been miserable here but still been good. Happy to declare no rattles or issues to report.

Checked and confirmed no interior lights other than the foot-well lights or the overhead lights. None in the interior door handle or the door bin. I was thinking of taking a photo when I realised that the photo would just be black.

No puddle lights in non Plus pack cars either. We get the outside door handle lights (that is for all the cars). What is strange is that they didn't even bother covering up the hole where the puddle lights would have been. It is just an empty space.

Huh, that's a little disappointing tbh! It's all listed as standard equipment on the website currently :\

I saw a guy on here recently did a retrofit, but it looked fairly complex for such a small addition.
