    So I pulled the trigger on a what I thought was a 2014 P85 with autopilot (assumed AP 1.0). From what I've read that sounds like it's already a unicorn, but after talking with my Sales Advisor I was finally able to get higher quality photos and found out it's actually a P85+! The original photos were literally the size of a thumbnail so you couldn't see the badge.

    I don't get to pick the car up until later this week, but now that I have the photos I was scouring them to look for any dents or scratches. But what I noticed was what appears to be the AP 2.0 side cameras. I don't think this is possible, so can anyone tell me what it could be?

    No cameras in the A pillars that I can see from the pics so maybe a wrap that was put on the turn signals is giving them an optical illusion?

    I have seen forums here where the side markers were replaced with AP2 ones, camera is not functional.

    Interesting. Any reason it would need to be replaced in the first place?

    I think the person on this forum that changed the side markers out did it for the looks more than anything. But you do have a good looking MS.

    Could also have carbon fiber wrap on it to remove chrome, I have seen those done too on chrome deletes.

    Right on. But to be sure there's no chance it actually has 2.0 correct?

    Like someone said, I don't see cameras in A pillars so no AP2. Late 2014 was first year for AP1 so very doubtful, plus I have not seen anyone here upgrading the hardware because they are so different.

    Can't be if it's 14'. Even AP1 came out very late in 14'. RWD P85 was discontinued about the same time. There were only a very few AP equipped P85 shipped.

    If this is a 2014 P85+, there is zero chance it has AP2. As was noted above, AP1 hardware was first delivered in September 2014. AP2 hardware didn't come out until October 2016, over two years later.

    A 2014 P85+ with AP1 is definitely a rare breed. Only about 375 were built (counting both the P85 and P85+ models.) You may be interested in joining the "300" group here on TMC, and it would be great to add your VIN to the list of known cars.

    The pillar between the front and rear doors is called the B pillar, the A pillars is what the windshield is between.

    I wonder if you could use fit those side markers with a dashcam. Add front and back and you get 4 channel 360 coverage.

    I think I will once I have her in hand. The vin is on there already but just noted as it's for sale, so I can update that info.

    Well thanks for the help everyone. I knew there was zero chance it could have AP2 but I need to obsess over something until I actually see it in person. I will update once I can take a look in person.

    Congrats! Considering the + was a bonus , AP2 would be like hitting the lotto. I targeted the + suspension in my P85d, so for me, Ludicrous would have been my lottery surprise. haha.

    Those days leading up to taking delivery are an obsessive and anxious time, enjoy it (if you can)!

    Just drove her home yesterday and the car is in amazing condition so I'm extremely satisfied - especially considering what I bought it for. And it definitely has the AP 2 side cameras. As far as I can tell they are not functional though since I only have the option of looking at the rear camera.

    There is a small paint chip right above the driver side side camera so I'm thinking maybe a rock hit the original side emblem/turn signal, then hit the body of the car. Then presumably Tesla replaced it with the newer part since that's all that was available.

    Congrats!

    Interesting that those are actually cameras!

    I wonder if you can do anything with them or if they are just there! Either way, it’s a bonus. Haha.
