Am definitely jumping on this. 40% is nothing to sneeze at, and this is on the Steam store, not some random third-party site. I've never run Steam, so wonder how well it will run on macOS...

    Could Tesla do this?

    In order to maximize rebates, could Tesla at the 5 month mark after hitting their 200,000th car, give all remaining M3 owners an option to finance the car (through them or otherwise) prior to taking delivery? We would configure the car and technically 'buy' it prior to the 6 month period so...
