I know this is probably going to get me a lot of thumbs down because quite a few people on here don't feel Tesla or these options are worth it, but I wanted to let everyone know that Elon Musk has announced that the temporary discounts on autopilot and full self driving are going back to their original prices on Monday.

For those that haven't purchased EAP and FSD already, the current price is $5k and will likely go back up to $7-8k. If you already purchased EAP, then FSD was $4k after purchase and is currently $2k.

None of the FSD features not included in EAP actually exist yet, so it's kind of a gamble at this point. Is it worth paying $2k now in the hopes that you'll get FSD features in the future and not pay $4k? I'm still trying to decide for myself. One thing to keep in mind is if you purchase FSD now, you'll get the Autopilot 3.0 hardware (new faster processor) for free when it comes out and all the features of FSD.

EDIT: To clarify, new purchases do not qualify for these discounted prices. You have to currently own a Tesla and not have purchased both EAP and FSD to qualify.

UPDATE: New car discounts (~3%) and AP/FSD discounts are still active until Wednesday at midnight.

I got the autopilot previously before they changed what it covered. Now I'm so confused what I have VS the new segmentation..........

I'm still debating too. Think I'm going to say the $2k for FSD. Still pissed though, if didn't buy EAP, you get both for $5k.

You could see it that way, or that they need to charge for the R&D of the software.

Not a Tesla owner but don't see the problem. Why do you have to pay for video games when you already own a console?

Unless you live in CA owning a Tesla is not a slick deal.

Dumbest statement I've seen on SD in a while.

I drive >110 miles to work every day, is saving hundreds on gasoline EVERY MONTH not economical in the northeast?

You're confusing hardware and software, frankly. The feature doesn't exist in your car until you pay for it. You own all the hardware though.

And what's wrong with anyone charging for their software? Do you shamelessly pirate all software?

If I'm buying new, do I add autopilot, then go back into the link to add FSD after purchase to get the $2k price?

Yes also confused. I see $3K + $5K right now.

I think the difference is this:
(Advanced) Summon: "Your parked car will come find you anywhere in a parking lot. Really."
Coming later in 2019: Recognize and respond to traffic lights and stop signs.
Coming later in 2019: Automatic driving on city streets.

according to: link [teslarati.com]

I agree they don't do math all that well. As was mentioned, they want $5k for ESD + $2k for FSD for people who paid for ESD initially, but then they offer full FSD for $5k to those who passed on ESD initially. They should be giving this upgrade for free.

For FSD doesn't your state need to legalize it. I'm in the midwest. I wonder how quickly they will legalize this technology.

That sounds like a "game" being released without being complete and needing extra funding. Going by your logic would you need to pay for each DRM release?

Look. You didn't get many thumb down, but tons of thumb up, and your post even becomes popular deal. I'm proud of being one of your thumb up supporters since I own a Model X and a Model 3. I do think there are many Tesla owners here in SD forum after the Teala surfboard deals that became hot deal last year.
