    We all bought AP when we ordered our MX or MS. Any guess how much does it cost to upgrade to Musk said?

    You cannot. You must buy a new car with Hardware 2 / AP2 / Tesla Vision.

    I don't think so. There is an upgrade path. Unless I am wrong you don't have have to buy a new car. It is crazy that you have to do that. I don't think do.

    From Musk twitter:

    Elon Musk ‏@elonmusk 20h20 hours ago

    "Should mention that retrofitting to full self-driving hardware is very difficult. Cost delta is more than buying a new car. Wish it weren't."

    Unfortunately it's the truth. Welcome to Tesla ownership.

    Let's use lemon law and return all our cars to Tesla.

    Not just Tesla. No car manufacturer would offer such an extensive and expensive retrofit to existing vehicles. Why do you think VW is buying back rather than trying to retrofit all those Diesel-gate vehicles?

    Merely referring to rapid changes on their cars.

    Did the car you bought not perform or function as designed? Otherwise, you have no basis for invoking the Lemon Law. Just because you want an upgrade and it's not offered doesn't qualify.

    Look already how great it is that traction packs are upgrade-able. You don't see support like that from any other manufacturer. Don't push it.

    There is no upgrade path from AP 1 to AP 2. This has been discussed in multiple threads and as noted above Elon has said there is no upgrade possible.

    That is absurd. If you seriously mean that, you have no understanding of what lemon laws are for.
