    When Tesla says they're rolling out the new update, how long does that rollout take?

    I'd guess a week or two: Tesla Firmware Upgrade Tracker Web App has plenty of historical data if you care to analyze it.

    They might be able to move faster if it's a critical safety problem or something like that.

    It could take days or months, based on Tesla's record on previous releases.

    If it's a critical release (like when they quietly disabled the air suspension after an accident), it seems Tesla can push the release out to all or many cars in a day or tow.

    But for most releases, we seem to go through the same start-stop process. A small group of cars get the release each day, and when Tesla encounters a major problem with the release, they suspend the process - take some time to fix the problem(s) - and then start the process over.

    Sometimes I've seen releases shortly after they are announced - and sometimes it's been weeks or longer before my car would get the release pushed.

    For a while, you could drive over to the nearest service center and get the release - but it appears they've discontinued that service.

    So - I'm back in the mode of looking at my smartphone each morning to see if there is a notification about a new software update...

    Our S 100D is at the Service Center for minor maintenance (door handle adjustment) - and it looks like they've installed 17.24.28.

    I, too, while away the hours awaiting Tesla's promised download, and I'm sure that when I receive it I'll be disappointed that x, y and z weren't included; then I'll while away the days awaiting the next update!
