    I happened to be tooling around my tesla account page and noticed under the description for the $6K enhanced autopilot upgrade, it mentioned "The enhancements include going from one to four cameras for greater accuracy, redundancy, and to see fast-approaching vehicles in adjacent lanes."

    Does that mean my 2018 MS75D currently has just 1 camera currently, and if I decide to purchase the upgrade (in the tail end of my 14-day trial now), that I'll need to bring the car into a service center to have 3 additional cameras installed? If so, where on the body of the car is the current 1 camera and where on the body would they be adding the additional 3?

    Thanks.

    The hardware is already installed into the car. It is essentially a software unlock.

    You should have two cameras on the pillars between the front and rear door, two on either side of the front fender (the turn signal lights), 1 in the rear, and 3 in the front windshield.
