    So with white interior I am now debating what to do...originally only planned on non P AWD(black on black w/o perf upgrade) but after 2 + years of waiting and getting really excited about actual options

    if you have to ask i don't think you really think the p is worth it for your needs.

    Otherwise, if this is not correct, get the black p with a white interior. it's only another $1500.

    I was thinking white p with white interior no other options, vs white awd with ap and fsd and wheels. now I'm getting my white/white awd with wheels and white interior and fsd!

    Ok I voted but will write my logic down ..the white interior doesn’t make car faster :(...The P does ;)

    For me P is worthless and black paint takes away from the lines/contour of the 3's body. So this is an easy decision for me.

    That said, I'd have voted for option 3 if given the choice: any colour RWD with black seats +++ savings. :D

    If you can afford P, and want a real sports sedan, it is worth it over not.

    +1 to Snow Drift.

    But, get the color you want, too! After waiting two years to realize a dream, don't compromise it for $1K.

    Ok thanks for the input all. My decision is now clear as mud. I’ve at least officially changed the colour from black to red.

    I had an order in for a P3D like you (black on black w/o PUP). I test drove the RWD yesterday, and determined it's VERY fast as is, and the AWD will be even more so. I also realized the tires on the 18 inch are definitely lacking so I dropped to an AWD w/ white seats and upgraded wheels that don't cost $5k. I feel good about my decision, but I would say if you have the ability to do a test drive, that will determine it for you if it's fast enough or not.
