    If Tesla sticks to their statement that their service centers will never be profit centers AND you extrapolate that as the volume of part production approaches 10K vehicles per week... isn't it reasonable to conclude that by the time Model 3 owners need out of warranty work done that the cost of those parts due to the extremely high volume and economies of scale at play that the Model 3 should not be an expensive vehicle to keep operational?

    Sounds plausible, but they will need to make their profit elsewhere... Paint? :D

    I think (hope) we can also expect 3rd party and used parts. Tesla can play its part by not charging high prices for parts.
