    Not trying to start yet another debate thread.

    But has anyone actually gotten scheduled for the upgrade (maybe at Fremont?)? Supposedly they were going to roll out to other SCs 45 days from 9/25. Of course that is probably not correct, but anyway.

    In short - has anyone scheduled, discussed scheduling, or otherwise have any glimmer of hope of scheduling?

    Thanks.

    Nope. I'm actually on the waiting lists for both Fremont and Rockland and I've heard nothing. Then again, I didn't even get the confirming email several others seemed to have received, despite my CC being charged for the deposit. So who knows.

    No confirmed date yet. Just found out in a phone conversation with my SC that I am #5 on their list. That's if I follow through with it.

    Actually I read (assumed) the other SC will get the upgrade within 45 days after the initial Freemont installs.

    I got an Email from my SC in Van Nuys, CA advising me of the "new" order requirement for the upgrade since I was 10th on their list. I wrote back stating that they were one month too late as I had already deposited my $500 and confirmed Sept 26th. Then I asked for clarification on the timeline for installation and they responded immediately that they did not know.

    expect ludicrous upgrade appointments to start being scheduled in Fremont. Total cost is $5,000, less deposit - nothing extra for parts/labor.

    Well, we've been "expecting" them. What many no doubt want to know, is when they will happen.

    Do you think it will be soon yo mama?

    I'm #1 on the list in Fremont. The first available appointment is this Wednesday, if I want it.

    My MS got keyed the other week and is currently at the body shop. I need to spring it between now and Wednesday if I want to keep this week's appointment. Otherwise I'll have to settle for next Wednesday. Because apparently appointments are only on Wednesdays, at least for the time being.

    Oh no! Your car is in the shop! That totally sucks. I got all excited that we would have numbers by this weekend and now we have to wait until after Thanksgiving. Boo.

    Well we've waited this long, what's another ten days or so.

    For those of us not in SFO, I guess this means that the 45 day clock has begun. We can hope for some non-SFO upgrades in January or so.

    Okay, after a lot of tears (mostly mine) state farm paid up this morning so now I can get my MS back from the body shop and keep tomorrow's Ludicrous upgrade appointment. Stay tuned.

    Great. I prepared for mine by going to the Irwindale Dragstrip to get a benchmark. I did 7.370 sec @ 93.04 mph with 79% charge in the 1/8 mile. My SC is Van Nuys.

    Great news on both fronts.

    Any idea on how long they'll need to keep your car for the upgrade?

    I recall hearing that it was an all day thing.
