I've touched on this once before but just wanted to clarify. Is there ANY advantages of purchasing the full self-driving option when ordering a Model S in the near future? It says active cameras change from 4 to 8 but that's not actually advantageous, or correct, until full self-driving kicks in/gets approved by regulators etc etc etc.
The only advantage that I've really been able to work out is that if prices increase, which they probably will when it actually becomes available you would have already unlocked it. Here in Australia, that could be 5+ years away.
Am I pretty much correct or missing something?
Or is it possible that maybe there will be elements of Enhanced auto pilot that get better with the 8 cameras as time goes on?
