Anyone ordering without EAP and FSDC?

Got EAP, no FSDC. Can always buy either of them later, so only buy now if you're *sure* that you're going to buy it eventually anyway, I'd say.

Ordered my S with EAP, expecting it to work shortly after my December delivery.:(

I didn't order FSDC, expecting that it may never work with 2016 vintage hardware and lots of regulatory obstacles to overcome.

If I'm right, I save $3K. If I'm wrong, I'll probably be happy to spend the additional $1K "penalty" to get that functionality.

In the interim, Tesla may choose to provide some "partial" self driving capability for FSDC-only cars that I'll miss out on. Time will tell.

I didn't buy either one. May get EAP in a year or so if the reviews justify it. If I was a car flipper or had leased, I might have purchased both, but I will probably keep the S for a minimum of 8-10 years so there is no rush. Thanks to all of you alpha and beta testers. Use your seatbelts and say lots of prayers. Earn that $2000 test pilot bonus!

I bought both. I debated on FSD. It is certainly vaporware now. But, I figured that even if we don't get all the way to the car driving itself there will be additional capabilities worth having. As far as the cost, I figure once a few improvements are made toward FSD Tesla is likely to start raising the price. People are thinking they can handle an additional $1,000, but what if that later turns to $2,000, $3,000, or more?

We also got both but can tell that FSDC is years away from being ready!

Got both, figure i'll save the 1000 now, and assume that if they actually get it working they are going to raise the price above the 4k after market price they have now. It's a bet on Tesla, well see how it pans out.

I believe the upgrade prices are locked in based on the car. Similar to the battery upgrades, the cost depends on your VIN and agreement at the time. It doesn't get cheaper/expensive with rollouts. Tesla is generally big on honoring the price point or making it better.

We didn't get EAP nor FSD.

Reason is simple, we couldn't afford it. It would've added 10% to the purchase price of our car. For something that wasn't even available yet, with an unknown availability date at the time of purchasing.

No regrets. We have the option of still buying it at a later date if everything ends up working as intended.

Can't blame the beta testers for trying to scare those of us who are waiting. I'd be trying to justify paying up front for vaporware, too. If Tesla decides to bump up the upgrade price beyond the $2000, we won't buy. Tesla knows that.

Not true. When Tesla raised the Autopilot price folks who hadn't upgraded yet had to pay the new higher price if they wanted AP. Even if when they bought the car, it was listed as the lower price. There are some threads here about it.

Not trying to "scare" anyone. I couldn't care less if you decide to buy it or not. Just saying the thinking that went into my decision to buy FSD now rather than later. As mentioned, Tesla has a history of price increases. You may be lucky. Tesla also has a history of trying to entice people with a limited time free trial. That might happen.

I bought both. I realize FSD will not truly be Full, but I'm hoping for more treats to be handed out regularly along the path to complete FSD (if it is even possible with current hardware).

I didn't get EAP or FSD. Im on the fence about ordering it in the future. If the price goes up, it's gonna be a no. The advantages aren't there for me. I enjoy driving my Tesla. Would I like my car to drop me off at the building and park itself on the rainy days at work? Yes, but they also gave me a free umbrella, so I'll be ok.
