    So my car was in the shop having some screen issues and I asked the wuwas action regarding the new mcu and if I could get an upgrade for my car. It had to go thru the Tesla ladder but it was I think approved.

    Can you guys tell me based on the below if indeed I got the new mcu in my car and if so, will I see a big difference?

    “It will be a new mcu combined with a retrofit kit to fit your car. It isn't the infortainment 2 cars, but the same MCU that is in cars built through March of this year. ”

    That’s awfully vague. Just ask: nvidia or Intel?

    Sounds like the old MCU to me. The retrofit kit is probably the LTE upgrade.

    Agreed, sounds like old MCU, but just a "new" (not refurbished) part.
