    AP, 75kWh, High Amperage Charger Upgrade and such.

    I was just wondering if anyone had added or removed a software option before delivery without incurring the $500 penalty?

    AFAIK the only option you can upgrade after confirmation without paying the $500 fee is the 75kWh option. For all your other examples you would have to pay the $500 fee (one time if you change them all at once, I would assume).

    Yes, I can confirm it's only a one time fee of $500. I just changed a bunch of options before production on my VIN 141xxx vehicle.

    That's too bad. It makes sense for physical changes but the price increase after getting the car on software changes should suffice.

    Dealing with change takes time. If they didn't have the fee people would be adding / subtracting daily and taking up DS time.

    Yes, just software, but still a time commitment.

    That's kind of a stretch and they could always make it a one-time deal especially after explaining what the option really is. That it really is just software and they're not adding or removing physical Hardware from the car. When I selected the option it did not say that it was software and that you could do it later for a slightly higher cost.
