Your friend is out of touch. Not to worry, I see people here everyday trying to sell non-auto cars far over value. When the auto hardware showed up in Nov. 2014, I knew I had to sell my 2013 before the software was "enabled". When the rumors grew stronger last summer that it would finally be released, I relented and sold her. I don't think people understand what the importance of Oct. 15th (software release date) really is to the entire Tesla fleet. I would run from any non-auto car....unless you can get one cheap.
