Thats exactly what I have been thinking. I know at some point it will go kuput, so is it worth the $500 now? I don't think so either... I just hope it dies within the next year so it's covered under warranty.FWIW - Tesla replaced mine with a MCU replacement. I don’t notice much difference over 4.5 years of having 3G. Just wait until your MCU dies and do it then, if you really want it.
Exactly why Im waiting for my warranty to expire before I pull the trigger on this upgrade.I replace mine before the eMMC issue was known and spent the $500 for Tesla to install it. Last Friday, my MCU went kuput and now I'm getting the upgrade again. I told Tesla I want the LTE board (and presumably) the SIM card (fingers crossed) from the old unit since I paid for them. I'll let you know what big brother T does when I get my car back later. On a brighter note, I was given a Model X to play with over the weekend ... the kids really dig the falcon doors, but I digress.
