    So after calling Tesla, they said that VIN is assigned during production, so how many days does it take to produce the car? im guessing just a few days hope to have a delivery next friday or something.

    Moder 3 new or model s used

    Personally perfer the S in terms of the luxary options, I would get a 2018 S for sure, any S made after 3/2018 comes with MCU 2, which is vital imo as it offers newest updates, netflix, etc. Model 3 is more simpler, cleaner, with a single 15 inch landscape screen, it all comes down to preferance.
