    Model S Long Range Inventory Availability

    There's no way all 50 sold in just a few days. Either they pulled them for next quarter or will bring them back with an incentive. We will know in the first week of October.

    Model S Long Range Inventory Availability

    Yeah, they're back now. Must have been a bug. With this many available right before quarter close, I expect to see a new incentive come up next week to get rid of these quickly.

    2018 MR vs. 2020 SR+?

    Appreciate the replies. The 2021 definitely has benefits with a heat pump but I'm looking at a used model with FSD. Here are two I'm looking at: 2018 Model 3 | Tesla 2020 Model 3 | Tesla The MR seems like a pretty good deal even compared to a 2021 SR+.

    2018 MR vs. 2020 SR+?

    Would that be any different than a SR+ with 250 miles of range? I thought the MR was the same as the LR RWD with fewer cells?
  11. D

    2018 MR vs. 2020 SR+?

    Both used and with similar miles and similar price. Which one would you get? I think MR has a bit better range and supercharging speed but I'm not sure what improvements they added in the 2020 models.

    For those who have taken delivery, how are you contacting Tesla to fix panel alignment issues? Scheduling a service from the app just tells me that they can't do this kind work via mobile service. Are you calling the service centers? How are you uploading pictures?
