    Took less then 2 weeks surprisingly.

    Why did you cancel your Model 3 reservation?

    I got refunded for my Oct 10, 2016 reservation a month ago. I don't like how this is going already with the early pushbacks so I pulled out. Bought a '17 loaded subaru outback. Great vehicle btw... Good luck on the waitlist...

    XM or AM?

    I don't know any person below the age of 30 that has ever even heard/listened to anything on AM radio nor satellite radio. The current generation isn't about that... Get with the times.....

    What would make you cancel your Model 3 Reservation?

    Just bought a BMW S1000RR.... That is technically our 3rd vehicle between just my wife and I... Not sure how the Model 3 will fit into our vehicle situation now... I'll keep the reservation just for kicks though. A lot can change in 2 years. This is what an S1000RR is btw... so sexy....

    In the future someone crashes into my Model 3

    you know... this brings up an interesting point. I wonder how long it would take to fix a possible future (2017-early2018) crashed model 3.... I bet you'd be without the car for months...

    The day finally arrives. You get your Model 3! Then what?

    Make sure to get ceramic tint as that will help your A/C hit in the summer.

    Test driving Model S this evening. Anyone need any referrals if I'm tempted?

    The wife and I test drove an X75D and X90D a couple of months ago. Was an amazing experience and not going to lie, we tried to make the X100D work for us, but ultimately decided to wait until the wife finishes her doctorate in a few years. Congrats on the deposit!! Now the wait begins....

    "100 Configurations" based options speculation

    I don't see why they would offer different size wheel options. The larger wheel just limits range on the car so it doesn't make any sense...

    Model 3 Interior: Ugh!

    My post from the steering wheel thread (more relevant here anyway): I like the stripped look.... IMHO car interiors have become very curvy and loaded with buttons. In time, they will start to look dated compared to the newer simple/subtle interiors. If you look at computer/phone operating...

    Tell me this isn't the final steering wheel

    I like the stripped look.... IMHO car interiors have become very curvy and loaded with buttons. In time, they will start to look dated compared to the newer simple/subtle interiors. If you look at computer/phone operating systems, they have migrated to a very simple look/design. This seems to...

    Model 3 pack configurgtion speculation

    The nice thing about getting the modules up in voltage separately would be the wiring that interconnects them can be smaller.

    Model 3 Roof Racks = More Downforce?

    Tesla Model 3 spotted testing with roof racks Sorry... I couldn't help myself. It was only a matter of time before something dumb was said.

    Model 3 external dimensions and comparison data...

    Well, 150kW doesn't mean per cell.... That power is spread out across all the cells in the battery pack. I agree with you in that larger battery packs can accept more watts similar to the same way that the larger battery packs are capable of putting out more power to the motors. Just don't know...

    Can Taillights be on a moveable object like the Trunk?

    Actually... This thread can be deleted as I thought the entire taillight went up with the trunk lid... woops. My Bad.

    Can Taillights be on a moveable object like the Trunk?

    Ugh... Thread Title Fail... I am referring to the main Brake Lights. Not tail lights as there are many cars with red tail lights on the trunk.

    Can Taillights be on a moveable object like the Trunk?

    I thought that the main brake lights can't be on a moveable object like a trunk lid. With the new mules, it appears they have made all of the rear taillights part of the trunk lid. I'm basing this only on the fact that there is a line going down the outside of the taillights now that makes it...

    Can't! Decide! Which color are you getting?

    Either blue or silver so my wife's next car (prob model x) can be a dark gray/grey.

    Model 3 - Early Reservation, Willing to sell

    This thread is just stupid. If you just want to make 0 profit and 0 loss, the sensible action here is to request a refund on your reservation. If you want to make a profit, then you will acquire the risk of taking a loss... Hope you do your homework. If you do go through with this and fail...

    Model 3 in Tesla raffle

    Thanks for helping me find this great organization. Just grabbed a ticket. I don't buy lottery tickets, but I can justify this as I know where my money is going.

    If it all goes wrong, what will we buy?

    If it doesn't work out for me due to major delays... We'll just get a Model X 100D and keep a 2-car situation. I would rather just get the 3 as a 3rd car though.

    **Speculation** - Final "steering system"

    I also guess pilots only have a small corridor not much wider than the width of the plane to fly in.... Forget about all that airspace up there...

    U can't take the tax credit and turn around and sell it.

    In & out in 5 min - Sign, take your money, keys, bye, next!!! why this is a bad idea.

    I feel buying a car should not be a major deal.... I mean cmon... really? Maybe because I've had a lot of cars, but it's not that big a deal to me to go make a "day" out of purchasing a car....

    Model 3 Reservation Question

    Said person would have to purchase it and then you purchase from said person. That's the only way. You can't put another person's reservation in your name.

    How to approach landlord about charging?

    True Cost of Ownership

    My true cost of ownership will suck slightly... lol... I have to pay personal property taxes annually on the value of my vehicles.... Here's my rough estimate for my Model 3: For a $55,000 car in Loudoun County it would cost: $55,000 * .042 = $2310 Relief calculation: $20,000 * .042 = $840...

    What are you going to dump.....

    Just adding it as a 3rd vehicle. Keeping the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. The Model 3 will be our primary vehicle for anything it can handle (work commute, local driving, and short vacations). The Wrangler will become toy status (i.e. hardtop off the entire summer) and backup car. The Grand...

    Model 3 may have Solar Roof that can charge the vehicle

    ah... the confusion is myfault.... I mistyped my post... I'll fix it... (*Note the last line) I do agree with this... I have bought a few books and brushed up on solar panels and energy. I have yet to come across anyone who knows the basics of electricity and solar panels.... I usually just...

    Model 3 may have Solar Roof that can charge the vehicle

    That point is a little off topic from what I was saying. While yes, solar panel efficiency will improve over time, it's not there yet today. Plus, you have to deal with the cost going up as newer panel technology is created. I could see this as a gimmick to get the Model 3 name out there at...

    Model 3 Only 1 Screen Officially

    I think that whatever they've ended up with, it will be perfectly fine. If it's a single screen, I'm sure that give people a week and they won't even think about it anymore. If there's a HUD, people will be too enamored to think about anything but it.

    What charges the 12v battery and when?

    What you would have is a DC (high voltage) to DC (12v) charger. A good way to test when it's charging would be to measure the current going into the battery when the car is sitting in various configuration over a period of time.

    Model X + Personal Property Tax = Expensive

    I don't have heartburn at all, though I don't think this was directed at me. I'm just simply stating the numbers as they can be surprising to some who didn't thoroughly plan their vehicle purchase (us included).

    Model 3 Only 1 Screen Officially

    Honestly this isn't a deal breaker for me. I use cruise control so much that I just don't care for the information right in front of me. Once I set cruise control in my ICE, I'm just steering at that point. I think people naturally don't like change and will over analyze this to death... lol

    0-60 ludicrous model 3 - How much will you pay and How fast should it be?

    I can agree with this. At the end of the day, Tesla is a company that still has a functional business model to uphold and unless their business model is about to drastically change, the performance model will likely be more costly to the buyer than a lot of people here are making it out to be.

    Model X + Personal Property Tax = Expensive

    You can itemize your Virginia personal property taxes (not the registration cost) on your federal deductions. Though, this only gets you back a little more on your state taxes.
