Removing FSD Pre-Delivery

Considering removing FSD for a LR MY I ordered about 2 weeks ago. If I click the button to remove FSD, will my LR still be priced at the 48,990 that I got when I put in my order? The only thing I have to agree on via the click says: "Yes, remove Full Self-Driving ($10,000) and keep Autopilot. I acknowledge I will not be able to make any further changes to my vehicle."

Nowhere does it say the price will adjusted. I've heard mixed messaging on this and I reached out to my SA but no reply...

I imagine it'd be fine.
Out of curiosity, why do you want to remove FSD?
Do you think Elon's "Download Button" isn't going to become a thing?
Multiple reasons but mostly it is hard for me to justify the 10k considering:

1. My annual mileage is below average so I just won't use it as much as many others
2. I've heard mixed messages regarding it from my friend who own Tesla's.
3. I would ideally want to try 1-2 months of a subscription before paying for it
4. Unclear how long I'd need to own the car to make worthwhile. Planning for at least 5 years, but still.

If you make any changes your configuration will adjust to the current pricing. The sales agreement is re-written when you make any changes.

Maybe call your SA and see if they can do it on the back-end?

For me I would never include FSD with the purchase only because it affects car registration fees (at least here in CA). I would add it after sale to avoid that.

Edit: Re-reading your post, it looks like it's allowing you to extract and remove just the FSD? It looks like that may not be the same a reconfiguration then.

This is where I'm confused. It is literally a button on the page and when I click it, it asks me to uncheck the box related to FSD and to check a box and acknowledge this specific statement: "Yes, remove Full Self-Driving ($10,000) and keep Autopilot. I acknowledge I will not be able to make any further changes to my vehicle."

I'm asking my SA for details, but I would be very unhappy if I proceed with the above click and instead of it simply being the removal of FSD at 10k, it reprices the whole car which would be a net reduction of 9,000 based on current pricing. If she confirms I can add later, 90% chance I will do that. If she tells me it will cost me $1k to remove I'm not sure what I'll do. I did get a VIN today...

I removed FSD on my order the day before delivery..... Since the funds had already been paid, they refunded me the difference. The only problem was 4-6 weeks for refunds.....
