    So I received a HW3

    Yes you will. Elon has confirmed this several times.

    What ever happened to the free carbon fiber spoiler and badging we were promised?

    Got my M3P a week ago. It was built late March. No spoiler.

    No-confirmation NOAP is here for the masses!

    I was on 9.8.4 and just got updated to 9.8.5. According to TeslaFi seems to be rolling out pretty aggressively.

    Any US Model 3 Performance deliveries in 2019?

    Yes, sorry for the confusion. My Model 3 Performance built in late March 2019 has the APH3 option code which equals HW2.5.

    Any US Model 3 Performance deliveries in 2019?

    Quick update. Checked the options on my Tesla via the API and I have APH3, so even late March builds are still Autopilot HW3. I bought FSD, so I will be in line for a retrofit (later this year is my guess.)

    Best color in the cloudy PNW?

    I went with White / White. Stunning.

    Any US Model 3 Performance deliveries in 2019?

    After Elon's tweet with details on HW3 I decided to pull the trigger today and picked up my Model 3 Performance today. - White / White Model 3 Performance - Built 03/2019 - they said it was actually built on the 26th, so four days ago and then shipped to Seattle - VIN 231XXX - 6 mies on the...

    HW3

    I would guess is it option 2 as well, was thinking the same thing earlier this morning.

    HW3.0 in EU model3?

    I deferred my Model 3 Performance order that I made earlier this month until May or June to make sure I had HW3... until Elon's tweets last night: Elon Musk on Twitter He clarified in no uncertain terms that the only difference between HW2.5 and HW3 is the computer, no changes in sensors...

    Can I still cancel my M3P order?

    I worked it out with Tesla and deferred my delivery 1-2 months. Since a VIN wasn't matched to my order yet, they said that most likely I wouldn't receive my M3P on Friday the 29th as scheduled anyways. They offered to defer my delivery for 1-2 months to see if there is an official HW3...

    Can I still cancel my M3P order?

    Thank you. I just logged into my Tesla Account page and I don't have a View Spec link yet. Right now I go to my Model 3 order and says I am in the prepare for delivery stage and the only link I have is Your Car -> View Build Details. I am guessing I have to wait for a VIN to show up after the...

    HW3

    One more way you can try if you still have the "view spec" link. Here are instructions from tkun in the reddit thread below. I just checked the ev-cpo.com option decoder page. Just copy your ‘View Spec’ button link and stick it on the page. What was interesting was that there were VIN numbers...

    HW3

    Wow. I really hope this is true. Have your tried the ev-cpo options lookup tool? Check out this thread for how X owners are verifying HW3: So I received a HW3

    Can I still cancel my M3P order?

    Agreed. However who knows how long it will take to get the upgrade installed and if they will change any sensors. If the HW3 date was still some time in the future I would just move ahead and get my M3P now so I could enjoy it. However, since we are probably a few weeks or a month away from HW3...

    Help me time my M3 purchase.

    I am going to try to cancel the M3P order I made on March 17th (delivery date scheduled, but not matched to a VIN yet) tomorrow and then place my order again once HW3 is officially announced.
  16. S

    Can I still cancel my M3P order?

    I am guessing based on the language in the order agreement it will be harder to cancel and get my deposit back after a VIN is assigned. I got my order in before the price increase, but the same config is only $1500 more. So I am thinking it is safer to cancel my order now if possible and place...

    Can I still cancel my M3P order?

    I ordered my white / white Model 3 Performance (Seattle area) on March 17th. I have a delivery date for this Friday, but no vin or details on a specific vehicle match yet. I bought FSD, but now that HW3 is being included in the MS and MX builds, I don't want to take delivery of my M3P until it...

    Great analysis. Thanks for this and all of the other predections you've shared.

    Tesla loan comparison spreadsheet - auto updates hourly

    Tesla is offering 3.75% for a 72 month loan. I am curious, why are people going with Lightstream when they have a higher APR and not directly through Tesla financing?

    Feedback from BMW or other premium brand converts?

    I did an overnight test drive of a Model 3 Performance last weekend and my thoughts are below. I currently drive a 2014 BMW 335xi in Sport Mode, so that is my comparison point. TLDR: I ordered a Telsa Model 3 Performance on Sunday and it beats my 3 series in every aspect. :) Driving While I...

    Feedback from BMW or other premium brand converts?

    I was in a hard debate with myself between white and red for my first Tesla, but I ended up ordering a white M3P on Sunday. I live in the gloomy, cloudy, rainy PNW and I think white will look better here day to day. I think you made a great choice for sunny AZ, the red looks amazing in the sun!

    Don't buy FSD for $2k more. [from 2019 - FSD upgrade not available for 2k at this time]

    Elon re-stated last week that new FSD purchases include the upgrade to HW3. Elon Musk on Twitter It's still a risk, but he has stated it enough times that it is a risk I am willing to take with my new M3P purchase.

    Tesla no longer matches Carmax on Tesla Trade-Ins?

    My OA told me I can go get a Carmax price for my BMW 3 series and they will match. So yeah, non Tesla trade in.

    Feedback from BMW or other premium brand converts?

    I am actually ordering the exact same car this weekend after the Model Y event tomorrow... :) Personally, I wouldn't take the demo. That is a low VIN number, so who knows what improvements are included in the new 2019 model vs. the 2018 demo you would get. Additionally the demo's can get a lot...

    Quick summary and links of all of the relevant information directly from Tesla and Elon on Autopilot Hardware 3 and the free upgrade for owners that purchase the Full Self Driving package.

    Don't buy FSD for $2k more. [from 2019 - FSD upgrade not available for 2k at this time]

    Could you share the source? I have been waiting on pulling the trigger on my M3 order for AP HW v3 and if there is a strong chance I will either get v3 in a new order or as an upgrade with the FSD package I am going to place the order.

    Updates Tesla has made to the M3 thus far

    Ah, this is great. I was worried they just removed some of the coating. Do you remember the source that found this?

    Updates Tesla has made to the M3 thus far

    So I've learned from various posts and YouTube videos that Tesla has already stealth updated some of the hardware in the M3 since it's release. I figured it would be useful to try to crowd source a list of changes so they are all in one spot. So far I've learned about the following updates: -...

    Tesla Model 3 Performance value at CarMax - appraisal lower than expected!

    You can buy a new M3P white / white including the performance upgrade package and EAP for $65k street. I would expect at least 15% depreciation off that.

    Best color in the cloudy PNW?

    So I am to the point of debating which color I should choose when ordering my M3P. Don't want blue or black. I am torn between Pearl White, Midnight Silver Mettalic and Red. We live in the cloudy and rainy PNW. I've seen all of these colors in person, but wanted to get feedback from you fine...

    Help me time my M3 purchase.

    @Th3120ck glad I could be of assistance. :) I am going to place the order as soon as I they can confirm that HW 3.0 will be included with my build. Planning on an M3 Performance. Debating over Midnight Silver Metallic or Multi-Coat White.

    Model 3 Roof Rack Options - Comparing Efficiencies

    How hard are the different racks (the ones attached to the M3 roof) to take off & put on? I personally only want the racks on part of the year for snowboarding or longish road trips and want them gone the rest of the time.

    Unsold Model 3 sitting in lot awaiting buyers?

    @vande76 @cowardlycow How do you track the inventory? I am in the market for a Model 3 and would much rather search myself rather than email back and forth with the OA.

    Any M3 owners with a family regret it?

    @bpjod perfect example of what I am looking for, thank you! We do snowboarding trips (3 hours each way) at least 10 times a year and knowing that my family should be comfortable and the cargo roof box will give us the cargo space we need is exactly what I was looking to confirm. I am still going...

    Any M3 owners with a family regret it?

    I will (almost) never have more than 2 kids in the backseat, so just need to optimize for the family of 4. Based on all of the responses so far, it looks like M3P is the way to go for my driving enjoyment, comfort and saving some decent $$$. I appreciate all of the insights, I had surgery this...

    Any M3 owners with a family regret it?

    Awesome, thanks everyone! I really appreciate the first hand experience comments. The more I look at the M3 and all of the futuristic design improvements over the MS the more I am sold that is the model I want as long as it is comfortable for our family. Great idea on the overnight test drive...

    Any M3 owners with a family regret it?

    I am slowly working up to getting my first Tesla, researching and test driving over the last few months. After the first couple of test drives I was convinced that I wanted an MS 100D so my family of 4 (average size height / weight, 2 kids ages 13 and 10) had more room for longer road trips...

    Feeler FS: 2018 Model 3 DM Performance, FSD/wrap/tint, 2k mi

    @forkee yes, you pay taxes on every transaction. So you paid taxes when you bought it, whoever buys it from you will pay sales taxes. Unless you find a buyer that loves paying taxes I don't think you will get the amount you paid in taxes back plus the buyer paying sales tax again on the...
