    POLL: If the GOP tax reform kills the $7500 tax credit, will you still buy?

    And really, I'd like to wait for a moonroof option to become available. Haven't had a car without a moonroof in 15 years. The weather right now in FL is perfect for riding with windows down and the moonroof open. Worth waiting for me.

    POLL: If the GOP tax reform kills the $7500 tax credit, will you still buy?

    Yes, I'd still buy a Model 3... eventually. If I can't take advantage of the tax credit, then I'm certainly in no rush to stretch to get the Model 3 I want. I'd rather continue saving my money and taking care of other priorities.

    Filing Taxes Jointly & Tax Credit

    I am one of those rare circumstances apparently. Spouse student loans. :eek::eek::eek: I THOUGHT I knew the answer to this question, but I'm not 100% confident. Do you need to itemize in order to claim the tax credit, or can you claim the tax credit while taking the standard deduction?

    Poll: 35k or 49k

    Add me to the "want-to-know" list!

    Poll: 35k or 49k

    Yeah, I was thinking about that as I typed it up. A feature I REALLY want on the Model 3 is the panoramic moonroof that is currently available on the S and X. I'd definitely consider selling my first gen 3 whenever that feature becomes available.

    Poll: 35k or 49k

    Okay, so the premium package, EAP, and midnight silver are must-haves for me, so this question pretty much comes down to the extended battery cost to as an independent variable to determine usefulness. I need some outside opinions on this so help me out guys. I live in Orlando and frequently...

    Home Charging - What do I need to do/buy?

    Do you mind if I ask how much the builder wanted for it? I just had a home built (closed on Monday) and had the builder install a 240V NEMA 14-50 plug for $250. It seemed reasonable compared to the $500-$1000 range I've seen people here throw around for adding to an existing home.

    Moonroof option?

    I have not seen any talk whatsoever about a moonroof as an option, and not much talk/complaining about the lack of a moonroof. Anybody know what the deal is? Wasn't a moonroof confirmed as an option for the Model 3 during the first reveal (metal roof, glass roof, glass moonroof)? Did something...

    Tax Credit Clarification

    Stretching your budget for a $40K and not making enough to owe federal tax are not one and the same. Regardless of how much money you make, if your money is obligated for whatever reasons (mortgage, kids in college, other debts, etc.) buying a $40K car could very well be a stretch. It doesn't...

    [POLL] How much will the 75kWh upgrade cost?

    If Tesla's goal is still to get as many people in EVs as possible, I can't see them overpricing the range option or trying to bundle it into a more expensive package. Offering an affordable EV with range that beats every other non-Tesla EV on the market should be their focus. Based on everything...

    Tesla blog yesterday repeats 215 mile range estimate

    Oh, I most definitely know why they are doing it. That's why I agreed with the person I originally quoted. I specifically was talking about the way they are anti-selling the 3. And I only said I find it a "bit" disturbing, and only because of all the talk of it being "compelling", competing with...

    Tesla blog yesterday repeats 215 mile range estimate

    Couldn't have said it any better myself. Although I do find the way they are anti-selling the Model 3 as a simpler car with "far" fewer options a bit disturbing. This IS supposed to be a car that competes with the BMW 3-series and Audi A4, right? I don't recall ever hearing that class of car...
