    If you were looking at a early to mid 2014 Model S with no AP hardware and comparing it to a late 2014 Model S with AP hardware (activated), how much more would you pay for the car with AP?

    For the sake of the poll, let's assume both cars are equipped equally and the non-AP car has the Tech Package.

    Realistically this would also likely (not necessarily) also include the difference b/w RWD and AWD. And there would be a performance improvement.

    I use AP every time I drive the car so it's worth a ton to me. I'd give up P before AP for sure.

    They made RWD AP cars for months prior to the AWD option being available, and then as an option thereafter.

    When I placed my order in early November 2014, shortly after the AP/AWD event in October, they gave me the option of adding AWD but it would have delayed the order until April 2015 at the earliest.

    Joke?
    You're telling me a similarly equipped model s's should have a 15k price difference because of AP?

    Good luck with that

    I'm not saying "should"...

    I'm saying, that's the reality when you look at prices, particularly Tesla's own CPOs.

    Let me answer it differently, because I was a candidate who was doing the same calculation in mind when I was shopping for S a few months earlier.

    For me AP was a must have. And there were very few AP cars in CPO listed at that time. So I decided that unless a non AP car came up atleast $12k less than what I thought was a fair price for an equivalent AP model, it wouldn't interest me
