    The configurator says that it is $3k after delivery. So $2500 at order time.

    Have you already ordered? If so, I would ring up your delivery specialist right now. Do not take delivery without it, trust me: you want it!

    Yeah so I called the main number and they said there's a $500 order modification fee which I laughed at the guy because literally it's just a license key it costs them maybe $5 to process it. So I reached out to my delivery specialist to try and get it resolved. If I were adding something that wasn't 100% purely software, I would understand but...

    So when you want to buy a music CD you say your should hey it for $1 because that is the cost of manufacturing the CD disc?

    Is a product you're buying. It costs $3000 to add after delivery. If you think it's worth only $2555 then obviously you're not a buyer when it's being priced at $3000.

    Not at all. The website says $3000 AFTER DELIVERY. I have not taken delivery yet, in fact the vehicle hasn't even started production yet.

    Fair point my good sir. They should change it without an added fee.

    Thank you for agreeing with me :)

    If there was a * next to it with a footer it'd be different but the website clearly says AFTER delivery. I will talk to as many managers as needed to get it correctly.

    Update: So I got a call from my Tesla sales rep. He talked to his boss and his bosses boss and his bosses bosses boss and they said that basically they won't waive the fee because it changes a bunch of paperwork and such. I'm disappointed...
