The actual logs Tesla seem interested in (including the stills of things they are interested in) get written to a removable SD Card before getting uploaded to the Tesla mother-ship.

You are not wrong that a soldered eMMC (compared to a eMMC held by a ZIF or a removable SD Card) would be more mechanically stable and potentially faster (A fast uhs-ii sd card compared to a cheap slower eMMC for example), just saying that Tesla already use removable SD cards in production cars today (which doesn't brick your media unit if it dies or dislodges).

Storing the OS on a removable SD Card is (imo) a bad idea, but if they are really interested in these logs they already have a easier to replace removable storage "drive" they could write the logs to instead of burning up the eMMC.
