    2021 Tax Credit Denied. [because its not been available for years on a model 3]

    I'm sure this has been discussed at length here, so I apologize and please dont drag me... However I just met with our accountant to file our 2021 taxes, and I was anxiously awaiting our $7,500 tax credit from the purchase of my 2022 M3LR back in December. Turns out I'm being told my vehicle...

    Regenerative braking on icy roads

    Ice storm here in Chicago the last 24hrs. First time driving on legitimate icy freeway 80/94 in IN & IL in my 2022 M3LR. Unfortunately can confirm (atleast for me) that the regen braking was absolutely an issue on the ice today. Normally in a ICE vehicle the coasting on icy roads avoids any...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Financing question for anyone that used Tesla to finance. Last task for me to "complete" on my app is issuing final payment before delivery is taken. I am picking up my M3 at our local Tesla location next week. Bringing my downpayment in a form of a cashiers check. For anyone that has used...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    First time buyer here and just received my VIN this morning as I stated above. In case any other first timers are wondering about changing the payment option from cash to loan upon receiving the VIN, I had to contact my SA to have him unlock my account and open up Tesla loan process as an...

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Fair enough, but what if I prefer to wait until tesla officially contacts me regarding the vin being ready. Assume that will be by email?

    Model 3 - LR AWD Waiting Room

    Speaking of VINs, does anyone know the method of contact when your vin is in fact ready? A generic email? Text? Call? Just want to make sure mine doesn’t go to spam.

    Wiki Model 3 Order Tracking Spreadsheet

    Interested in the variance of after a VIN is assigned to when the EDD is set. I see the avg days listed on the top of the spreadsheet column, but also looks like some buyers simply didnt come back and update their profile during the process. Waiting for the right time to sell my current vehicle...

    Visual differences in LR AWD vs Performance?

    How much better is the new upgraded battery? Assume the heat pump adds to that efficiency as well.

    Visual differences in LR AWD vs Performance?

    Jeremy, Appreciate your confirmation. Thanks for the spoiler and pedals insight as well. I looked into the new M3 LR option, however I never landed at the $49k mark to be candid. After adding the exterior color gray and including the upgraded rims, it always seemed to make the price relatively...

    Visual differences in LR AWD vs Performance?

    Understood. However does that spoiler on the LR AWD referenced above throw you for a loop at all? Was that an option back then, or potentially added on after the fact?

    ScottNY, If it was a performance model would it infact say “Performance” in that photo?

    Visual differences in LR AWD vs Performance?

    Thank you, gentlemen. On that note, understanding that the true model has to be confirmed via the UI, do you think that some of these large scale online dealers that are cycling through volumes of cars potentially have Performance models actually listed as LR AWD vehicles?

    Visual differences in LR AWD vs Performance?

    Before you drag me as a first time poster etc., please hear me out first... I'm in the market to purchase a used LR AWD and/or Performance model. However after months of research and monitoring the market, I've come across some potential "issues" that I am seeking your experienced opinions on...
