Advice on new Model 3 SR+ v LR


Mar 27, 2013
Just looking for advice on which Model 3 You guys would recommend in my circumstances.

I have an S75D (had from new ,2 years ago, 7k miles).I love it and I wouldn’t change it
My wife is looking to change her Infiniti (lease expires in 3 months).

She only does local driving in Dallas max 100 miles a day( normally 25-30 per day).

Would you guys suggest the SR+ or The LR . I am struggling to see if the 10k price difference is justified although the premium sound package would be nice .

Thoughts greatly appreciated.

The SR+ is $39,900.

The LR is $45,500.

The difference is only $5,600.

That is a lot more car for $5,600. I would definitely go with LR at today’s pricing, which appears to be completely different from yesterday’s pricing.

When I was looking this weekend my sales person told me that LR RWD is now 4k less than LR AWD.

This is the member who got the pricing of $45,500 including AP. However I just called Tesla inside sales and they told me the price is $44,900 not including AP. So as usual, each Tesla person you speak to has a different answer to the same question. I don't know.
