I have EAP (which is basically current FSD) in my 2018 MX and recently ordered a Model 3 with just standard AP. No way is FSD worth the cost. I would take a new car without FSD over a used one with FSD every time. No contest!
I took advantage of the recent EAP special. Summon was something I expected to be a cute novelty but it has turned out to be the most used part of EAP for me. I use it every day to pull my car into and out of the garage. It is a tight fit and I used to have to very carefully pull it in as close to the wall as possible so that I have enough room to wriggle out of my car and not slam my door against my wife's boat (Toyota Sequoia). By using (dumb) Summon, I stop so that I can get out of the car easily and then let Summon take it the rest of the way into the garage.while the summon is cute feature and a novelty at best, it was so slow I could walk to my car quicker.
It's neither technologically nor financially feasible, particularly on the current models.Most "worth it" videos/explanations rely on one of two approaches: using the car in the future as a "RoboTaxi" (which does not and might not ever exist during the lifetime of your car), or simply as an assisted driving feature (which does exist today).
FWIW (not much), I think $10,000 for FSD is approaching “penthouse at the height of the housing bubble,” not the ground floor.I do see the potential there and I want to get in at the ground floor.
