Decision Hinges on Two Bytes

So it has come to this. If Tesla would release only two more bytes of information I could make the decision about whether to wait for AWD/performance or go for the LR:

Bits
[7:4] How much quicker the AWD (Byte 1) or Performance (Byte 2) is to 60, in 0.2s increments, relative to the LR
[3:0] How much the AWD (Byte 1) or Performance (Byte 2) costs in $2000 increments, relative to the LR

For example, if the AWD ran 4.5s to 60 at an additional cost of $4k, byte 1 would be 0x32.

Just two little bytes, Tesla? I know, you’re busy with production hell and all that, but you’ve leaked entire E-mails. Surely there is time for a couple bytes, especially when the sanity of thousands of line waiters is on the line?

Man is busy with optimizing flufferbots, don't distract him with your meager requests.

Or maybe I am really an AI programmed with a sophisticated recurrent neural network that can fake forum posts indistinguishable from those of a human. And maybe we’re all in a simulation. The world may never know...
There's nothing about this thread that resembles normal human interaction... :D
 
A range of 0.8 seconds and $8k does not sound like enough. Willing to give up some resolution ?


He assigned 4 bits to each value, so there are 16 possible values in each nibble (hex digit) with the assignment that each bit is worth 0.2s or 2k, that's actually a 3.2 second and $32,000 range in values... so should be plenty.

Hex Decimal Binary
0 0 0000
1 1 0001
2 2 0010
3 3 0011
4 4 0100
.......
9 9 1001
A 10 1010
B 11 1011
....
E 14 1110
F 15 1111
