For those who've done this.

Tesla gives us $4K credit for the installation.

So if the installer quote say, $5,000, do we pay him the difference of $1,000 and they collect the $4,000 from Tesla directly?

Or, am I out-of-pocket to advance the total $5,000 and ask Tesla for reimbursement for $4,000?

Sorry for the hijack - tho' somehow related.:sick:

I understand your point and I hope you are right. The difference is steer by wire and I truly hope that we are not waiting for 2+ year for them to figure it all out. Again there were a lot of people who paid for auto pilot and never got anything. (Sold car after 3-4yrs, and any other scenario stolen, crash.etc) anyone who purchased the vision was never made whole. I skipped that option in 2016 and 2019 both model S and glad I did because IMO it’s still not what they said it was to be.
Thanks. Not sure what you're talking about with Autopilot. I bought a new 2017 Tesla Model S back in 2017 and paid for Autopilot (which was active at the time of purchase). A few months later, I bought FSD, which Tesla later even upgraded its Hardware 2.0 to 2.5 for free. I was running FSD Beta on it right up until I sold it and transferred FSD to my new Model S. HW 4.0 cars waited a few months for Autopilot and FSD to be available on them, so I imagine it'll be the same for the Cybertruck.

No I was just saying some people did not receive that. Remember autopilot was originally announced back in 2014. I remember before I purchased my first Tesla Elon was saying these cars would be able to drop you off at the airport, drive home and park in the garage. They also said you would be able to drive to the mall, get out and the car would find a parking spot. How many people made that purchase because of those talking points? That still does not exist 10 years later. You may have kept your car to experience the updates but imagine purchasing something day 1 and 1 or 2 years later not what you were told. FSD is still not totally hands off, will it ever be? Who knows but Full Self Driving should be exactly that. Many people sold there cars way before they actually got the feature they paid for. If they got another Tesla guess what they were told before they had to rebuy autopilot. Being able to transfer was something that came later on. I am talking about the time where every Tesla came with free supercharging. Those customers

I hear ya. Then I'm not sure why you're on this forum then.

Also, I think most people knew it was going to take time since it had never been done before. I think Tesla did an amazing job keeping my 6 year old car current and updated, and to me, if I still had it, probably would have been just as good as the new cars with FSD. Also FSD V12 looks amazing.

BTW, Jaguar looks like they're closing down shop and their online portal for customer's is going away. Now THAT would get me upset...

I wish Tesla would simplify this for us customers by precisely stating just exactly what equipment we should Already Have (plus what we would Not Need) in order to maximize the value of my $4000 Powershare install credit (I ordered the Beast). Especially since I have planned to go full solar+powerwall some time this year anyway, hopefully prior to receiving my Beast.
C'mon Tesla, make it easy for us, not just offer some piecemeal $700 partial replacement credit because some of us already have solar setups installed in our homes.

@Steelrebels, I received the same email.

I'm reading it as "you basically have everything you need to power your house from your Cybertruck, so here's $700 towards something else from the Tesla Shop".

I have Powerwalls and a recent wall charger, so I think I don't need anything else. Now I'm just mad I already bought the Vault Divider and Bins before getting the credit, but I'm sure something else will pop up to spend the money on lol.
so you think that's all I need is a wall charger installed and the truck will be able to power my house? I too have 2 powerwalls, solar from Tesla.

sounds like they will pull out on that too. I'd love to see someone get that 4k money. V3 Gateway plus Wall Charger included they said......instead, I got a 700 credit for the AWD purchase. SCAM

Yes, that is my understanding from what Drew Baglino posted on X, along with the latest email from Tesla. We won't be able to test it though until the firmware on the truck is updated and allows it to be used as a battery backup for the house.

lol welcome to the club. We've been calling out the powershare scam since we found out it wasn't really included. Pay our guy or get nothing. At least for you, since they're claiming you have the hardware already, you got something better than 6 months of free supercharging. Those of us who are ineligible or don't want it installed at our current location or dont' want to pay the one installer in our area the ludicrous money they ask for... 6 months supercharging.

This is by design, the less you know the more you think you need the foundation offering. After reviewing you don’t if you have Powerwall and a charger
