    I think for most people it’s not worth losing the full tax credit for. Myself included.

    No. I would then be delaying the air suspension Model for the HUD Model.

    You can wait forever for the next new feature to be added. I would like SAS but my feeling is buy now and enjoy. That is exactly what I am going to do!

    Some hoped that air suspension would be packaged with performance Model 3, but did not happen. My current car does not have air suspension, so its ok.

    Can air suspension be retrofitted to TM3? Or if available soon, be added to models
    configured in the next 2-4 months?

    Had it on my S and don't miss it. Have yet to scrape, even in places I was worried about it in the S

    I’d love to have Air Suspension, Heated Steering Wheel, Pano roof (sunroof), and HUD.

    Not waiting though.

    Heated steering wheel...that would be great. Going to miss mine* (*I will quickly get over it). I was hoping for air suspension, but not a big deal in the long run.

    Agree. I'm surprised that the thing I miss most about the S is the pano roof.

    Air suspension can be very expensive if it breaks and it doesn't give you the same road feel as with coils. If driving a nimble car, sometimes you want that feedback.

    As far as the heated steering wheel, meh, I mean if you can precondition the car and the heat blows right on the steering wheel anyway, I'm not terribly worried about having a cold steering wheel.

    Elon would say that you don't care if there is a heated steering wheel in a taxi so it doesn't matter. ;)

    Want to know who has the Model 3 with the best and most features? Your neighbor who is taking delivery next week.

    It's going to be like taking the red pill for those new to the Tesla brand. Forget about the Civics with no material changes for 5 consecutive years.

    Anyone want to hazard a guess at cost?
    In the past, was it always part of an upgrade pack on the S?

    I am waiting for an air suspension, but I've already got a 3 from my first reservation. No complaints. And I'm waiting only because I don't need another Tesla at this point.
