I bought the Bondtech for Mk3s and I am happy with it.

I built my own mix of MK3 and BT Extruder with fast and easy hotend change possibility: https://grabcad.com/library/prusa-mk3-bt-1-8-extruder-1

..with slightly better print results by reducing ghosting and vibrations for a more homogeneous surface, similar to these pictures:

to the MK3S do you only need the upgrade or is it necessary something else? Like a new firmware or another hardware.

With the bear upgrade is it work?

Sorry for my poor English. I try to do my best....

Look here: https://www.bondtech.se/en/product/prusa-i3-mk3s-extruder-upgrade/#tab-firmware  

(Estep set to 830; adjusted Z_MAX_POS to 205; changed printer name).

For the Bondtech Upgrade You need a new x-carriage. You can find all files and information on the Bondtech sides.

@mk3betatester did you do the upgrade?

Im thinking about getting the upgrade, all looks good. One thing I am a bit hesitant about is the need of another firmware. I will be dependent on Bondtech, So 1 year from now, when Prusa releases version x, will bondtech still update it as well?  Is the firmware update the only method, or can it also be done through GCODE or the CLI?

I have it and have used it for about 4 months.  I like it.  The firmware is easy to install and is updated regularly.

I did my own upgrade. You can edit the sourcescript, which you can find on the Github sites, compile it and flash with PrusaSlicer.

Here an example (my MK3S with 1.8 stepper extrudermotor) with optional changes:
