    Inventory vs. Customer Order

    I didn't sign my papers until I checked out the car. The delivery rep showed me the car and then asked for the payment.

    Got hit by another car, how bad is this kind of damage?

    My wild guess is $25000. Fortunately, there is no motor, axle, transmission or radiator in the front. Hopefully, the battery is intact.

    Inventory vs. Customer Order

    They are not necessarily rejected cars, IMO. Dealerships operate like that. Tesla is a hybrid system with and without dealership, IMO. They want to have some inventory to keep the sales smooth. If they waited to build the car they could see down times and rush times toward the end of the quarter...

    Trust broken - Tesla doesn't honor what it says

    My sales rep added it for me. I didn't have a code so he found one for me.Nice guy.

    Instead of lowering prices on the high profit performance awd, I would have created higher trim to attract Porsche and exotic car drivers. Higher trim with exclusive colors, wheels, and aero kit.

    Tesla "Sportster" on Model 3 Platform

    They never work fast enough for the amount of rain on the windshield. It is like 2 steps below where it should be. I have to choose manual setting to clear the rain after I get tired of pressing the button.

    I just clicked build the car link on BMWUSA.com and tesla.com. here are the screenshots. to an unbiased person, tesla site is misleading while bmw is translucent.

    Package Pricing

    I have to agree with op. When I was checking out Tesla last year, I fell for that a couple of times but since then I have gotten used to it. I mentally add $1200 when checking the prices.

    Do RWD vehicles also have potential for a performance increase?

    Then Sr/sr+ Still do have room for improvement up to 5.0sec as long as the batteries can provide the juice.

    Model 3 Squeaky Breaks?

    this isn't the only car that does that occasionally when I back out of my garage. the pads kind of just float in the caliper brackets and it seems natural for them to kind of vibrate with light touch with friction on the disks as the car changes direction and moves slowly (forward when parking...

    No wonder you sound like a Tesla cheerleader. I would have saved about $1500 I think. So not too much for me either. Let's be more considerate for those who would have saved $5000+ if waited 6 months or less.

    Model 3 Trade-In Tesla Offer - Need Advice!

    If I wanted x really bad I would just do it. Trade in had tax benefit like some mentioned. So you would have to ask it private party for at least $31000 to do better. Is it worth the trouble? Without AP are you sure it will sell for more than $31000?

    In 3 years, the model 3 will probably look the same from the outside. But if OTA updates could solve everything software related, the automatic wiper, for example, should be fixed by now. I still like the car a lot but my confidence in Tesla software engineers has decreased in the 3 months of...

    Leasing at least guarantees that I will be getting rid of the car after 3 years with no further loss. To do better than leasing, I will have to keep driving the car with shorter range and old technology. I get tired of cars easily.. Fortunately, the Model 3 is staying above the average "fun...

    Charging speed is increasing. Battery's operating temperatures are widening. Efficiency of powertrain is improving. Wireless charging is in development. In 3 years, who knows what will be the norm for EV ranges, charging speed, and degradation?

    In March, I would have leased my car instead of purchasing if 4500 down 399/mo was available. 1. Battery keeps degrading 2. Technology keeps advancing at a faster rate than ICE.

    I don't know how you came to $3000 worth. But I read somewhere that to equip a car like waymo the cost is $10k. I guess that price includes the software.

    Would you buy at those prices if you were in the market? Would anyone else from this forum buy those cars at those prices? Any one person?

    They don't actually make the sell at those prices after the Tesla lowered the prices unless the buyers are clueless. I guess the clueless buyers exist in every market for any product. In that sense the demand includes the clueless victims.

    People who bought those used cars were clueless. When they realize they could have bought new cars for the same price they will come on this board and rant. Lol. And eBay sales fall thru a lot of times.

    People in favor of price cuts.

    The shorts claim that Tesla is a big Ponzi scam. I think Elon keeps lowering the prices to disprove that claim.

    If I was using my car this summer for long road trips I might have purchased it for $3000 also. I don't really need AP. I cannot justify even $2000 for my need.

    In ten years what will you do with it? What do you think the value will be? Effective range? Battery warranty is for 75% after 8 years. In ten years if the battery degrades to 75% it will give me 180 miles which is more like 130 miles because I won't be driving below 20% battery. It will be...

    Discount if buying more than 1 car?

    It is a bad time to get the Tesla itch. The price will be a lot lower next year. But if you already want to buy a Tesla, the best deal would be to buy a inventory car.

    Your Model 3 Standard Range (is being software limited)

    AP is included for $2000. Down grading refund is $1500. So upgrade cost around $3500 seems reasonable.

    I cleaned my car exterior today and found a few rock chips on the bumper. I would like to use touch up paint for them.

    I am pointing out the price drop did not equalize the drop in tax credit. you said tesla lowered the prices to equalize the tax credit drop. Tax credit amount decreased by equal amount no matter which trim you buy. do people care if it averages out to $1875? do people buy multiple teslas at...
