    Has the AP1 Upgrade option disappeared from My Tesla for anyone? Mine just disappeared today. I was toying with the idea of adding AP for a trip this week. I wonder if it's just a glitch or if they're changing something.

    I'm going to guess they decided it is no longer a viable product so have removed it

    Still not back. TACC is what I want.

    Call Tesla tomorrow and ask them about your issue. Let us know what they say.

    It comes and goes from my My Tesla account also, with regularity. Maybe they are getting to finally roll out a finished product.:D

    Spoke to a guy at Tesla just a bit ago. He wasn't aware of the upgrade being removed from My Tesla and he wasn't able to do the upgrade over the phone. Apparently they've completely stopped the AP1 upgrades and didn't even bother to tell frontline employees in.

    Dunno. We shall see what happens when 8.1 is released.

    Weird.

    Did you even get the 30-day trial?

    Maybe they figured that most people that were going to upgrade already did so.

    Yep. I took delivery in September but really didn't have a need for AP at the time. Now we have a long trip coming up and I was interested in adding it but apparently it's not possible at the moment.

    So I ultimately decided to do the S60-S75 upgrade due to our upcoming trip. I had a hard time getting the payment to go through on My Tesla (Tesla said problem was with bank, Bank said problem was with Tesla) and ended up speaking to several different people. No one knew why the AP upgrade option was removed but one person did say to check back after the update at the end of this week. I have no clue if that was just a general suggestion of if they actually knew it would be back.

    How much did the battery unlock upgrade cost?

    $9K. Reasoning for the upgrade that I swore I'd never need:

    The original plan was for the S60 to just be my "around town" car and to replace my wifes midsize SUV (which was our travel car) with an X next summer. However, after a test drive, she decided the X was just too big for her. So that threw a wrench in my plan. We've also discovery that my S is much more comfortable to travel in than her SUV and between the trunk and the "frunk", actually has more storage. She's also completely fallen in love with the model 3. The final twist was Elon mentioning the v3 superchargers. I'm assuming that only the new battery tech they'll be introducing with the model 3 will be compatible.

    Sooo... now our plan is to get her a Model 3 and we'll replace my S60 (now a 75) with an X100D (or whatever is top-end but not P at the time) once the X has the battery tech that allows for the very quick supercharger charging. That leaves us with my S as the travel car for a probably 2-3 years. The 60kw battery technically could have technically taken us everywhere we'd ever travel but a few legs between superchargers would have required us to travel at 80-90% speed, etc. The little bit of extra battery capacity with the upgrade should allow us to travel anywhere we want without having to drive slower.

    That's also why I now want AP (for TACC) but can't get it...
