2021 MIC delivery, FSD availability in UK

I collected my made-in-China blue M3 LR from Thorpe Park on Monday. I expected the software to be up to date, but I realised it was 2020-39 rather than the current version. I did a couple of hundred miles yesterday, however, and was using navigate on autopilot and traffic-light recognition without problems.

Yesterday I contacted Tesla and requested the software update which came through this morning. Now I find that navigate on autopilot and traffic light recognition (and possibly other features) are greyed out and "not available in the current area". I was previously under the impression that these features, even in beta, were on UK cars and I recollect seeing several videos where the features were used and described.

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Newly delivered cars never ever have the latest software update. Often they have a software version that is only specific to new build cars and not a "standard" update version. The over the air updates will catch up with your car after a few days. At the moment we have been going through a period where the software updates have been started and stopped for Teslas generally ... we presume due to bugs that needed to be rectified before a wider roll-out ... so I wouldn't be surprised if you don't have a slightly longer delay. Do you have FSD I presume you do with the thread title? If not you will not have navigate on autopilot.
