Thats not what this OP said. The OP said "tesla acknowledged they removed it" there was no mention at all of "they acknowledge it was purchased". Read the OPs statement again, which is below.. relevant quote bolded by me.
This doesn't seem fair to me. If you you see EAP in the screen menu when you buy it it's part of the car. It's part of the purchase price. Transaction complete. It matters not if it was paid for or not or by whom. If someone feels they have an ownership claim against something you have that you think you paid for legitimately they should not have the right to take it from you. I reject the premise that a software feature can be considered a "trial" by Tesla unless explicitly labeled as such to any viewer of the vehicle.
I bought my Tesla with 18" in wheels and then added the 19" wheels later. My tesla account details still show 18" wheels. Does that mean tesla can, at their discretion, remove my 19" wheels and replace them back with 18" wheels" just because they don't have a record of a transaction of me buying the 19" from them?
