October 16 FSD Plug In?

October 16 FSD Plug In?

Was the October 16th a date for the 3, the S or the X?

I have a first week of October 3 with FSD fully optioned.

What are you talking about?

Oh. The shareholder meeting was great!

Elon kept mentioning that all cars made after October 16 could be converted to the fast computer in a plug and play way.

Logically that does not mean that a Model 3 made before October 16 cannot be as easily upgraded.

Maybe only S and X before October 16 have a more difficult upgrade path. I don't know.

Does anyone here know which vehicles the October date applies to?

I see now. Elon meant October 2016, which is when Model S and X switched from HW1 to HW2. Only HW2 and later cars support FSD and the new computer. All Model 3 cars have HW2.5 or later and are capable of FSD.

Ah, Thank you.

Makes perfect sense. Pretty incredible corporate discipline to pull this off.

Awesome discipline.

Older Model 3 cars do not have the latest FSD computer yet. They will need to be upgraded. The currently shipping cars all have the FSD computer built in.
