If it's just faster then I'd probably skip. The maps are fast enough for me already, and I don't care about the browser.
However, if it enabled CarPlay/Android auto support, made the car a wifi access point, or gave more apps (Waze being a prime candidate), then I'd be interested, probably in the $3K range.
Your assumption assumes that I'm sitting around waiting for the MCU all the time. I'm not, I'm driving so it doesn't save me any time. Also the 120 seconds per day is mind bogglingly high.If you want to calculate the ROI, here's the math..
Typical owner makes $100,000 per year net. (yes I know some people make a lot more)
$273 per day
0.19c per minute
Assumption based on video's I've seen, new MCU will save you 120 seconds on interacting with the display per day.
3 years of ownership or 3 years left of ownership
0.38c x 1095 days = $416
Add $500 bucks for aggravation factor and the fact no one has patience these days, and the upgrade should be around ~$1000.
The "old" MCU is plenty fast for what I do. I don't have AP, no lag to speak of that I can see. Everything works just fine. I find the hype over MCU2 to be overblown. Tesla needs money, I hope the retrofit costs $5,000.With the potential MCU retrofit announced, how much are you budgeting for it?
Arguments for and against, and for your vote, appreciated.
