No, but I might have begged just a little when I was in for service (B pillar rattle) yesterday.

Didn't seem to help.

I had a 45minute software update applied today. Can't get to the car yet to check, but could this be v9 or is there another minor update doing the rounds too? I never had an early adoption invite.

Did you have 36.2 already installed?

Not sure I had an update a few weeks ago. My app says 36.2, but I haven't physically been to the car since today's update, not sure if it updates versioning in the app over the air?

Once your car is done updating, your app will show the new version even if you don’t go to your car. If you started the update earlier today, you probably just installed 36.2.

I received a [very surprising and unexpected!] email invite from Tesla on Oct 2 at 1am, and despite being on vacation was quick to sign up when I got up at 8:50am. I assumed it was because I emailed them about auto wiper stuttering last week and received a response the same morning.
However...this morning my coworker (who just got his model 3 a few weeks ago) also mentioned he got the invite and signed up. So now I'm assuming the invite went out to most people.

Sadly my car was unplugged for six days and probably asleep and not updating, so no updates past 36.2 on 9/21, but we will see.
I really didn't think much of it till I just now read Elon's tweet response to @TrevP that it was expanded by 1000 people.

I find if very hard to believe that both myself and my coworker were randomly selected for such a small group.
I suspect many more were invited, an they really only signed up the first 1000 responses, certainly before me.
But we will see...
So, who else received the invite and when?

No invite here and I've done bug reports in the car and via email...

I agree with @JWardell. I suspect they sent a few thousand invites and accepted the first 1000 for now.

What I’m curious about. If you are in the early access program, when they start testing FSD features, will they only push that software to people that purchased it? Or will people that paid for EAP be given the test versions of FSD features up until they’re released widespread?
