Why does everyone keep saying its a $500" savings/difference? Using my non-Tesla calculator $2500 - $1750 shows $ 750. Not $500
We don't know if the $1750 cost include or excludes touchscreen.
I think "confirm" is an awfully strong word given the hearsay being bandied about as if it were fact.So is this confirmed that it would only apply to non-working units? Mine “works” just really slow. And I’m in warranty. Has there been any confirmation from Freemont yet?
The description I heard was “MCU died and is not recoverable”, which to me sounds like this would only apply when the MCU would otherwise qualify for a warranty replacementSo is this confirmed that it would only apply to non-working units? Mine “works” just really slow. And I’m in warranty. Has there been any confirmation from Freemont yet?
Tesla Tap reporting
- MCU2 Upgrade price lowered to $1750 for MCU1 cars still in warranty
Yea I couldn't find it anywhere
Could not find any official confirmation but hope it’s true even though I was well outside my warranty window when I had my MCU upgraded.Word on the street is that a memo went out prematurely to SCs that for MCU1s that fail under warranty, the replacement/upgrade to MCU2 is $1750, but it was retracted since it wasn’t officially approved by leadership.
It's not currently the official policy. A Tesla employee told me this when I asked about it for my wife's upgrade coming up on monday based on a PM from a member here, since her 2016 X is under warranty. Her MCU is fine, just slow, and the tesla employee told me:Could not find any official confirmation
allllllriighty then AP1 car upgraded to mcu2...
Huge upgrade in the frame rate and responsiveness of the instrument cluster, this is a massive thing thats always bugged me since delivery and its only gotten more laggy over time... now the power output etc is actually shown in damn near real time, basically imperceivable lag. Autopilot for example, obviously its functionality isn't better, however seeing the smoothness of the onscreen animation of the blue lines quickly going up the screen, it feels like new again. the ic doesn't struggle to keep with showing the cars on screen etc, same design but overall far better graphical performance. Also when you touch the scroll wheels something instantly happens on the screen so you are not doing those extra scrolls for the ones it was too overwhelmed to notice lol.
Also the sound is better, not like game changer, but its clearly "better" than before.
The games and entertainment is cool too, Tesla needs an option to put this stuff on the IC screen and leave the other screen up so we can mess around while stuff is playing etc....
overall STOKED. Get it.
