    What's the latest on the $5k refund for Performance version buyers?

    I think you've got your wires crossed, I don't even understand your argument! Bowing out of this one.

    What's the latest on the $5k refund for Performance version buyers?

    I think you might be confusing me for someone else! I don't own a Model 3 (yet), though I would if I didn't live in car-unfriendly Manhattan. But agreed, purchasers that hadn't even taken delivery when the pricing change was announced do seem to be more deserving of some special treatment.

    What's the latest on the $5k refund for Performance version buyers?

    In that case, assuming you elected to not purchase the PUP for the reason that it contained option(s) you didn't want, then it would be fair to say that even if the PUP had been a $0-cost option at the time, you wouldn't have taken it. I think, if we're trying to figure out what refunds...

    Aah, got it! Thanks for the info, will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    What's the latest on the $5k refund for Performance version buyers?

    Excuse my ignorance, but isn't the refund only available for those who bought the Performance Upgrades package at the additional cost of $5k (ie. the "+"?)

    Supercharging to become limited for new cars

    Teslas ordered from the start of 2017 will have free "supercharging credits" included annually, with usage on top of that amount charged - sign of things to come and an attempt to keep the supercharger infrastructure available once they start shipping all those Model 3s? An Update to Our...

    Model X Launch In Oz

    I think a lot of them were sold as demos, I remember being offered a non-autopilot P85+ ready for delivery at a pretty good price as an alternative to buying new in mid-2015.

    Model S instead of X

    I'm not sure that's correct, I wouldn't suggest giving up your 3 reservation just yet, particularly if you got in early. While Tesla have said that priority will be given to existing owners, I'd assumed that meant "out of those who had made a reservation", not that existing owners without a...

    Model S Facelift is Here (poll)

    Wow, that price rise... a maxed-out P90DL is now $287k in WA. Will it push over the $300k mark once the 100kWh battery makes an appearance?

    Model 3 Reservations List - Australian TMC Edition

    I wonder how resale value of the S might go in a few years, once there are plenty of Xs about and the 3 starts delivery locally. Be interesting to see, we might finally get a more active second-hand Tesla market like the US has had for a few years now.

    Despite there being a whole heap in Melbourne, and driving to work every day to the legal end of the CBD, it's still pretty rare that I spot Teslas on the commute! A few hundred isn't as many as you'd think in the context of a city.

    Alarm Activation

    The only way that the car could know that someone is inside, would be if they had a key on them. (versus say, a thief breaking / reaching through an open window to use the interior door handle)

    Tesla in Australia

    Not having the internet browser on the centre console would not preclude the car from offering a hotspot, as far as I'm aware. However, as noted, it seems like hotspot isn't a feature available anywhere in the world.

    P85 for sale second hand

    I'm betting that it was purchased for less than the asking price, too. When I called up a few months back to ask about inventory/demo cars here in Aus, I was offered a pre-autopilot loaded P85+ in sig red with all the goodies for about $140k.

    Used Tesla on carsales

    Yeah I think this might be "ZAPZAP" that was listed a while ago in Victoria - the seller had it listed for private sale at $140k for a while, then put it up on eBay and I think it got to $85k or something before bidding stopped. Reason for sale sounded pretty dodgy at the time too - apparently...

    The seller will definitely struggle to get $50k now, since the CPO launch. Should've sold when he could!

    Mobile charging for Australia

    Nope, except for supercharging the charger is inside the car (hence dual chargers vs single as an option), so what enters the vehicle in Australia/Europe (3-phase) is different to what enters U.S. models.

    2013 Model S 60kWh

    This thread started off well - the OP seemed to recognise that people on this forum hold pretty strong opinions about the value of used Teslas, and actually invited honest opinions from the masses.

    Heh. Needless to say, you can buy a new car with the same options, plus the next-gen seats and autopilot hardware, for $75,570 if you're in CA.

    List of confirmed Australian Orders

    I don't think there's any shortage of enthusiasm in the younger generations for the Tesla, the means to purchase one, on the other hand, are more of an issue. If you don't mind me asking, what is it that you do for a living that has enabled you to buy a Tesla at 22?

    Definitely not to my taste, but that's some great workmanship, and it looks like it was fitted at the factory!
