    Something strange showed up on my list of specs for my Performance Model 3... I logged in to check and see if I've been assigned a VIN yet and I have not, but when I pulled up build specs something was there that I'm pretty sure was not there last time I checked... look at the bottom of the list.... what do you think? Anyone Else have this? Capture.JPG

    Probably is just subtracts out the cost of the PUP, wheels, spoiler, etc. since those are “included”.

    Has Tesla registered more then a couple "D" Vins? My price is still showing the same $60k for the non-performance.

    Perhaps because black paint is free on other builds? IIRC, paint is free on P3D?

    Yup... the PD seems to be an offset for what otherwise would be "paid" options on other models (paint and wheel upgrades- which you can still take the "cheaper" version of on the P, you just don't get any money back for doing so)

    I have Performance Discount 1 and chose Red Multi-Coat. I'd guess Discount 1 covers everything except Black, which gets Discount 2. I also got 20" wheels (I assume vast majority will). Maybe there are Discounts 3 & 4 if you got the 18's.

    Maybe they didn’t realize their MVPA software pricing wasn’t matching their configurator pricing and this was the easiest fix. In any case, no one should get their hopes up. This won’t be an actual discount.

    Well I just ordered today, and it was in the View Build Details link for me from the beginning. @FlyNavy01 reported seeing it first on Friday.

    So no $1000 off for taking black paint? Was wanting Xpel Stealth on black paint. ARG

    How does Xpel stealth look on the dark grey vs the black?

    Guess we can't hope for premium black paint in time.
