Will insurance cover the increased value if I add Enhanced Autopilot now?

    If I add Enhanced Autopilot to my 2 month old Tesla, how can I get my insurance to add the value to the car so it's covered for the increased replacement cost (which would increase by the $6,000 cost of adding Enhanced Autopilot) in the event it's totaled?

    Will my insurance be obligated to cover the increased replacement value if I add Enhanced Autopilot now?

    Or how can I be sure if another driver totals my car and is at fault that their insurance will be liable for the extra $6,000 (or at least $5,000) added Enhanced Autopilot value as part of the replacement cost?

    Ask your agent :)

    I'd assume it is no different from aftermarket items - tint, wheels, etc.

    When I insured my car, they didn't ask if I had AP or not. Just the main product line & version.
