    How do you feel about only being able to select the color and wheels? I wonder how Tesla will handle low reservation numbers for people who want features like AWD, do you slip the reservation until the option is available or put them at the back of the line or let them swap numbers with people later in the queue?

    I have a high reservation number, so this doesn't impact me at all. All we care about is the safety-related driving features: automatic braking and adaptive cruise control. As I understand things at this point, the hardware will be on all Model 3s, even if the software is delayed a bit. Beyond that, blue and smaller wheels would work.

    I figure I'm about 20% of the way back in the queue, so if I defer to wait for AWD or P75D I expect to be 20% of the way back in that line as well. How quickly you place your order will impact this once you receive your invitation to configure as well.

    Seems like the only semi-fair way to do it.
