    Why is everyone rushing to get the first iteration of an untested new HW design? I'm quite happy to wait for the kinks to be worked out and having HW3.1 installed in mine. Especially since there's zero value in getting it before there's any FSD software functionality.

    A better word to use, than “coding” would have been “Optimized”.

    Wait... you have a 2017 MS75D? Unless you snagged it between August and December, does that also mean you had AP2 or did you have AP2.5? How long did it take?

    Why is this not blowing up? Something isn't adding up... Is this not *the* first retrofit of an AP3 computer into an older AP2/2.5 car?

    It'd be nice to see a scan of the actual invoice (with the private stuff blacked out of course!).

    I requested it from the Costa Mesa service center and they said they haven't received any for retrofit.

    If your MCU was the older slower kind, did they upgrade it to v2 also or just the AP computer behind the dash? Someone mentioned to me that MCU1x will need to be upgraded with the new FSD computer together.

    From what I heard from service is that HW2.5 it is just the computer. They haven't figured out entirely what needs to be changed for HW2.0. Probably the cameras and radar too.

    Well, I am a May 2017 Model S with AP2 ... I just requested the FSD upgrade and got a July 5th Mobile Service Appointment. Now, it just happened so I'm sure I'll get an e-mail telling me that it can't be done yet - but here's hoping.

    I also saw some comments about why the rush to get the upgrade. In my case, my wife just got a Raven Model X .... her autopilot seems smoother and her sentry mode actually records (and she has working dashcam!). And just to rub the salt in the wound, she's got MCU2 and the new games ... I sure hope Elon was right about being able to upgrade from MCU1 to MCU2!

    I upgraded my march 2017 100d from mcu1 to mcu2 myself. I could not get the autopilot computer changed over cauae it was not working even though it was properly communicating with mcu. Problem was sensors and cameras.

    I can ofer the upgrade to mcu2 as a service but it will still have ape 2.0, no 2.5 paskal

    Well, I'm either being teased by Tesla - or I have an AP2 -> AP3 upgrade on the way for July 5th. Just got an appointment confirmation and, in my opinion, the key in that confirmation was:

    Note: The day of your appointment you may see an update pending for your vehicle. Please do not install that update. This update has been sent by the Service Team and will be used to complete repairs on your Tesla. If you install the update before your appointment, we will have to resend the update to your car which will increase your appointment time depending on connectivity.

    Here's to hoping for the best!

    Jeez! I just used the app to request an upgrade from AP2 to FSD and got an appointment for a Mobile Service upgrade on July 11. I'm in Columbus, Ohio.
