    Sorry I forgot to include that info in my post. It's a SR+. Are there any confirmed LR models built after May 15 that got HW3? I don't see any logic in putting HW3 inside all LR cars (many of them will never use FSD), but have HW2.5 in SR+ that were ordered with FSD. It's a waste of money and resources. And don't imagine that they have enough mobile rangers for replacing the AP computers in a timely manner for those who ordered FSD - I have been waiting for 15 days to be contacted by a mobile ranger to schedule a repair on our Model S... They can barely attend to the current needs of a very fast growing number of Tesla cars on the road. I highly doubt they will be done replacing the AP computers for all those who ordered FSD by the time they launch Model Y.

    If only you knew what happens “behind the scenes” so to speak.

    Any “new” vehicle is driven by a number of people ... everyone from the QA guy to the delivery person to the salesperson to the porter to the PDI guy to the detailer to even other folks on a test drive have farted in that driver’s seat before you ever see that car.

    If you think it’s pristine, think again ....

    Emissions mode is even worse after eating Easter eggs. Something about sulphur ....

    But seriously, it’s absolutely normal for a dozen+ people to have driven a “new” car before delivery. It isn’t nearly as “pristine” as one would think ...

    I did.

    That's why I had rangers only doing 3 a day, even though it's a 30 minute job.

    And SCs only doing 5 a day even though they can work on 3-5 cars at the same time

    If Rangers were doing it as a full time job they ought be able to do at least 8 a day including travel times- meaning the entire S/X fleet would be done in about 5 days instead of 15.... and the SCs would be done with the 3 fleet in 2-3 weeks instead of 8.

    lol this is a 35-60k dollar car. It's nothing special, and they produce 5-9k of these a month. Plenty of people have sat in, farted in, leaned on, and driven it before you ever see it.

    the car is the same price as a new 5 series... it is not "nothing special".
    People have some sort of twisted idea about what they buy.
    Maybe that's why everyone pays off a car loan to afford luxury they cannot otherwise afford, hm?

    A new 5 series is 53k, a new Tesla is 35k.

    And a new base model 5 series really isn’t something special either IMHO

    My last Cadillac was $67k. It, also, wasn’t anything special.

    HW2.5 even after April 12th build date

    This group was created for this very reason. Many of us are going through the same thing buddy not happy about the situation and having to wait for the upgrade.
