Free premium connectivity cut off for M3 varies between countries, it's tied into when Tesla opened ordering for the M3 in that country and if you have premium interiorHello!
I recently purchased a 2018 Tesla Model 3 LR AWD from a Toyota dealership, who obtained the vehicle as a trade-in from an individual (original owner). The car had FSD and Premium Connectivity upon purchase and driving for a week. I went through the steps for getting the vehicle associated with my phone app (submitting proof and everything), and after it was activated, I received a notification that my trial for premium connectivity would start and afterwards it would be $9.99.
I still have my FSD on my "software" screen in car, and it's listed on the my account on the Tesla website under "details". I am under the belief that the original owner purchased the FSD as an option when they bought the car (not after purchase/delivery of the vehicle). Since I already lost the Premium Connectivity does that pretty much mean I should be safe from Tesla reclaiming my FSD as well since they would have flagged both for removal upon activation of my Tesla App?
I've been reading all of the forum posts about this and it's all very confusing and stressful . Kind of just wanting something to ease my mind a little!!
