I know Elon's tweet said that it is still available one week after they removed it form the website. But is it still available to purchase it now off the menu before delivery? Because I do know that I will definitely buy it once it come out. So I don't want to pay the extra fee for after delivery.

And yes, I know that there are no features for FSD yet. But I'm totally optimistic and forward looking in the neural network technology ;)

EDIT:
Yes, it is still possible (as of 4th January 2019)! Simply reply to your order confirmation email you have received. Email address should be BuildMy3EMEA@tesla.com

Following 6 countries have been confirmed to work:
* Austria 3200 EUR
* France 3200 EUR
* Finland 3300 EUR
* Germany 3100 EUR
* Netherlands 3200 EUR
* Norway 25100 NOK
* US $3000

Yes. I just added it to a new MR order yesterday. Once you place the order, you will get an email from Tesla and you can just respond to that email and ask them to add it. The person who took care of it for me was my "Inside Delivery Advisor" (not the initial contact who just dealt with scheduling the pickup). After I emailed her, she said she would request that it be added to my order and it showed up on my account a few hours later.

Ok so, I called Tesla Austria today and they said that I can not order the FSD now for the Model 3 at the moment. It will come at some point in future (yes I knew that ...), but just not now. And also the Austrian government needs to approve full self driving features first. And he also couldn't give me a price.

what a bummer :(

Don't give up Buju! Like yourself I wanted to get the FSD option. I wanted it mainly to show support for its development, but when I called Tesla they said it couldn't be added.

However after seeing this post and EinSV confirmation that it can still be ordered off-menu in the US, I sent an email instead linking to this post. Just two days after I got the confirmation that it was added to my Model 3 reservation for 25100 NOK (Thats a very favorable 8.37 NOK per USD exchange rate given the weak Norwegian kroner these days)
So it is possible to add here in Europe as well, I just think some of the sales people aren't aware of it.

Best of luck! And thanks to you both for making and responding to this thread :)

cool thanks for reporting. It is still not possible for me, but I'll keep trying. I want to support Tesla in their effort for full self driving technology! ;)
So do we, Buju! What went wrong, did they declined your request by mail?

So, I bought FSD, the short version is this ... if it ever works it is worth far more than 3k. if it never works, someone will sue and I will get a check. That said

what is the decision tree for buying it now?

Some facts

1, no longer available...
2, 2.5 system is NOT robust enough to support FSD
3, 2.5 system may NOT be robust enough to support EAP
4, company has stated will upgrade hardware to 3.0 for FSD purchasers for free

Other bits, interesting interview about Tesla Neural net from a guy that hacked the system laid out the math for why Stop signs, Speed signs recognition of stop lights is a bandwidth problem for 2.5 so that it is not possible to fully implement EAP on that platform. He could be Full of sh-t but also successfully hacked the system (whereas I ...)

So given that...

BUY if you believe that Tesla is NOT going to replace the 2.5 CPU for free and you think the value of the 3.0 CPU is greater than 3k... you really should buy FSD by whatever means.

Do not buy if you believe that Tesla will have to replace ALL 2.5 CPUs for free because full EAP is not possible on the current hardware.

I’m going to wait for the rave reviews of HW 3 and then order an upgrade. There are enough people who have already purchased it that we should be getting some good feedback in the forums pretty quickly after it is released. I imagine there will be supply chain constraints right after the board is released so the wait time may be on ElonTime.

First I called the number from the account page. At first he didn't know anything about it, so he is going to check and get back to me. After few hours, he called me back and told me it was not possible at the moment.
Then I wrote an email to the Tesla Store near me asking the same, including linking to this thread as suggested by @Firkløver. They also don't have any more info besides that is currently not possible anymore.

I'll attribute this to the early stages of opening orders for European countries and Christmas times, that some information may not have been spread properly to all Tesla Stores yet. So I'll wait until the "delivery specialist" is calling me and then I'll try again. Because at that time, they should really have all the information about the delivery already ;)

Is waiting until the delivery specialist not a little late?

I just requested the addition via responding to the orderagreement. I did this in both English and Dutch. I did this now because I do not want to pay the After Delivery price, which is about € 2000 higher.

That's right Buju, just reply to their e-mail confirming your order so that you'll get the upgrade a few hours later as I had!

I am not aware of anything that defines how far EAP will go. Are there any specific commitments on what will get added to EAP? I don’t believe they made any offers to upgrade 1.0 or 2.0, so I’m not seeing any chance they would upgrade 2.5 for free.

Called this morning. At first they told me "you can edit your order online" then I explained "no, no FSD off menu blahblahblah" and then they said "oh, I see, if you've sent the mail you just have to wait until they process it.

But maybe you'll hear something different.

Let me know.
