Buying a Model X has cost me more than I thought

    We have had the Model X for almost 2 months and I have fallen in love. It is actually my wife's car and I find that I do not want to drive my 3 year old Model S, never thought that would happen. So now I'm struggling with weather to keep it or buy a new Model S with all the stuff the Model X has. My thinking is to wait til next year and see what battery is offered and then make the switch. Thus the cost me more title.

    No kidding.... I reserved a Model 3. End up ordering a X in July. Was not planning on a X. Was going to get another EV (currently lease a Leaf), to cover me till the Model 3s arrive next year. Just looking at all the current non-Tesla EVs, none appealing, althought I think the Fiat 500e is good, but might as well just put the money toward a Tesla. Since we're getting the 3. No point getting another sedan. Ordered the X. Now maybe that'll help us move up the line a little bit for the 3.

    M: A solution: get another X for you, and then turn your S into a pick up like an El Camino....imagine, an S with a load of Mango Mulch or Sonoma Gold aggregate in the back...See ya, bud! John
