    I am seeing various reports that the software FSD upgrade is now showing as $5000 in folks accounts. It looks like it is still $3000 when ordered new, which is interesting. I can’t confirm, as I already have the option.

    I am hopeful that a price increase means feature releases are imminent!


    Edit: looks like it is now $5k after the fact

    I think it's just a strategy. No one I know has purchased FSD since they didn't know how long they'd wait for it. Even worse, imagine if you totaled your car before it ever even got enabled. But now that he's announced that some FSD features would be coming out in the next major rev, more folks are likely to go ahead and spurge for it (as I just did), and the high "pay later" price is just intended to imply that you're really going to regret not having done so.

    Bottom line, they're trying to coax money out of people earlier rather than later. They want this to be a good quarter.

    I think that makes sense for new orders, but it's pretty lame for those who already ordered based on the price being quoted everywhere as $4k post delivery.

    I'm fairly certain we'll all be eligible for the $4K FSD upgrade. New owners not so much....

    Existing S/X owners are seeing $5K for FSD upgrades, but for existing 3 owners it's still $4K. Not sure if this is going to fix itself soon or what.

    Um, we’ve said all along don’t depend on it being the same price forever and here we go. I bought it just for that reason. (That being one reason.) They have done this in the past where the ‘post sales’ price was changed. It said ‘after pirchase’ but not how long after purchase!

    What we need now is people with S and X’s who didn’t get FSD to see if the price in their accounts still says $4000 or changes to $5000. Perhaps after July 1? Who knows.

    Edit: is that all current S and X people are seeing the new price! Eek. I would have thought a warning would have been warranted....

    Then they should’ve said it was increasing on July 1st to get people to pull the trigger. Now there’s no incentive to get it right now because it’s not like they’ll increase it again anytime soon.

    it could be 1k in the config and 10k after purchase and you`d still pay 1k for basically nothing because you can`t save money on a product that doesn`t exist.
    I´m pretty much expecting a big "undelivered paid-for features" lawsuit in the future....

    Yes, only applies to new buyers.

    I don't know, I mean I'm getting full coverage when I get mine and I'd hope that insurance will still cover that feature even though it's software only.

    I remember how someone yesterday was bemoaning they hadn't gotten any warning, any notice, that the FSB price was changing.

    Thought: Might be that that existing owners have been given a grace period. Tesla just pushed another $1K stack of chips up to the four already at the center of the table. So now it's time for you call and bet against them but pay $5K later or fold and buy at $4K in the next few weeks.

    How do I cancel my order? First off they not allowing me to pay for data when I was planning on it after one year. Now after I ordered the dual motor they lowered my price $1,000. It doesn't seem right that they can make changes like these. :):):)

    2017 MX owner here. Yesterday some 2018 MCU2 MS/MX owners reported that the FSD option disappeared from their account, so I went to check mine. It was still there and showing $4000. This morning it changed to $5000.

    That does bring up a somewhat more serious question, are they honouring the old Red/White paint prices on those existing AWD orders?

    Does give an incentive (for those that actually believe FSD is coming anytime soon) to fork over money to Tesla up front rather than down the road, doesn't it? Encouraging more people to pay $3k up front certainly helps the bottom line a bit.
