    Let's use this thread just for discussing and tracking waitlists, scheduling, installation, pricing, and logistics of the Ludicrous Speed Upgrade/Retrofit for Existing P85D cars. I think there are plenty of other threads discussing pros/cons, technical, value, misrepresentation, game changing, "where's autopilot?", etc., so let's just focus on the details for those who are going to get the upgrade.

    I'll start. Added to Rocklin SC waitlist yesterday. They truly have no details other than what's on the blog post.

    I put myself on the Dania Beach, FL SC on the 18th. I am the tenth on the waiting list. They had exactly zero information.

    I have called Vancouver SC and they have very little information as well. One Concern I have, being far away from a service Center (Calgary). I am hoping my car doesn't need to be shipped or having to travel to Vancouver for the upgrade.

    I called and left a message, waiting to hear back from them. 10th is probably good, it will give them 9 chances to practice before they touch your car!

    I already had a planned service appointment for 8/4. They have told me that they will do the upgrade when it is in the shop if they have the parts at that time. Fingers crossed. Thus far, they have nothing -- no parts, no information on the cost of the install. This is at the Northern Virginia Tyco Road location.

    Elon Musk, said the cost of the install would be 1600 dollars plus 5000 for the parts. I am good with that! Sign me in Vancouver SC!

    Strange. I listened to the call and I heard him say the labor would vary by location.

    Wouldn't he be quoting that price in USD?

    I'm 4th in line at Kansas City SC. We know more than they do at this point.

    I'm on the list for the Centinela Service Center in LA. They don't have much information yet.

    On the call Elon said $5k plus the local labor cost for fitting, but I've seen a couple of people who've been quoted $1600 for fitting.

    I've seen one guy report $1600, but nothing from Elon. I agree that Elon said "plus labor" on the call, but that isn't the same as Elon said it would be $1600.

    He didn't say "plus labor" he said "plus labor at the local rate" so there will be no fixed price nationally.

    But at least one person has been quoted $1600 by their local SC so that at least sets a ballpark that it won't be $500 or $5000.

    I took my car in for service yesterday to the Costa Mesa and they said the information was still filtering down to them. At this time they were just putting people on a waiting list for the upgrades... So I added my name and now it's time to hurry up and wait...
