All of you pathetic Tesla sickos finally convinced me that I HAD TO PURCHASE the Acceleration Boost. I was counting on a 48 hour trial period, although I was fully aware that the 48hour trial is from the time of purchase.

HAHA! It's now almost 24 hours since I purchased the upgrade, and it STILL hasn't been downloaded. It looks like I will only have 24 hours to try it out.

I just spent 45 minutes in a "live chat" with a kind Tesla rep, and he said that, unfortunately, mgmt made it clear to him, and me: THE 48 HOUR TRIAL IS FROM THE TIME OF PURCHASE, NOT FROM THE TIME OF DOWNLOAD, no exceptions, even if they DON'T get the download to me.

So, just venting. I have a case number for the live chat if I choose to follow up with a formal complaint, and the Tesla rep. said he would submit my complaint, as well, to Tesla mgmt.

Always connected to WiFi. Tesla just took its time sending me the download. It finally downloaded around 7pm this evening. I now have 24 hours to destroy my rear tires.

Gor-Gor: "$4k to keep." Huh?

As others have stated, the difference is quite noticeable. A quick burst knocked my son's phone out of his hands.

...sigh...

I felt bad and told the wife to spend $2k on whatever. Had to make it even.

Have you tried rebooting the car with the two steering wheel buttons? It doesn't make sense that you should need to wait so long to get it when, as others have stated, it's pretty much available immediately if you are connected to wifi.

Tesla clearly did NOT SEND IT in a timely manner. I ordered it at 7:44pm, Sunday evening, received the download Monday around 6:00pm. The car was confirmed on WiFi, and set to "advanced" for receiving software updates.

Uhh...well...I guess. I just cancelled it, though. I didn't want that much more power lingering for if/when my kids drive the car. Yes, I know, chill is available, but I'd have to plan ahead.
Still kinda pissed I had so little time to play with it. Only shaved 1/32" off the rears...sigh...

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Within 10 minutes of me cancelling the AB, Tesla pulled the software. Bastards!!!!

So, it took them 22 hours to DELIVER the download, and only 10 minutes to retrieve it.
