    Curious if I should just go ahead and get it soon or if there’s a chance they go on sale in the future.

    No and with Tesla ANYTHING can happen. It is as likely as that it may go up to $2500 as it is to go down. A change is only one Elon Tweet away.

    No sale so far but if Autopilots bipolar pricing swings are any sign you never know. I wish they would offer it for my LeMR, I’d buy it.

    $2000 is the “sale” price. Sometimes (often) its $0.00 (aka “not available”). Get it while it lasts...

    Do you mean FSD?

    Which has only gone down in price once- ever- for 2 weeks a year and a half ago, and Tesla admitted it was a mistake.

    Every other price change has been in the upward direction.

    No never on sale. If it’s something you want by it now before it (possibly) goes away or goes up in price. Don’t kick yourself later just for the sake of waiting a few months.

    I've been waiting since it was made available too... I find the price high for what ends up being a software update when I already have all the hardware. I just wish it was 1000-1500 CAD instead of 2700CAD as it is now.

    It’s a mixed bag. People think the price to turn on the “software” for rear heated seats is too high as well. But at least you have the software option. Tesla installs (mostly) all the hardware in each car and the user gets to decide what they want to pay to turn on. Someone like Audi or Porsche you have to pay extra for everything upfront and if you want it later it can’t be done, have to go theirs party and not covered by warranty, or costs you more later and doesn’t integrate as well. Tesla gets a cost savings my (for the most part) standardizing the cars and simplifying stock and assembly. If you paid for an upgraded engine with Porsche it would likely cost more than the Tesla software switch and not necessarily give anymore performance different; plus you couldn’t do it after the fact if you wanted. Don’t get hung up on the fact that it’s a software switch. What do you think all those engine chip swaps or engine remapping third party services are. Just turning on something you already paid for hardware wise.

    AP went on sale from $3k to $2k back towards end of Q2, which is exactly when I bought it. :)

    That being said, I don't foresee Boost getting a discount anytime soon. Maybe down the line when the newer cars are noticeably faster and/or Tesla is wanting to squeeze some extra profit in towards the end of the quarter as usual.

    Jeremymc7, i know exactly what you're saying. I work in the software business too, i understand very well how it works.
    I know the equivalent power on a gas car costs a lot too, I've gone that route too. Still, it's hard to justify after paying 69000CAD (after taxes and credits) for a car. I'll probably do it soon, it's burning my fingers

    I guess that's....sort of... a sale... they reduced the price on basic AP down to.... the amount they effectively have been charging for it anyway ever since it became standard.

    (when it became standard they included it "free" but raised the actual car price the $2000 they later put it "on sale" for to those who didn't already have it)
