    Yes - just minus the red underline that the Ps get.

    Yeah, but only when Tesla has the inventory. I picked my up Model 3 Performance and they didn't have badges or spoilers.

    I'd actually prefer that. If I had the option, I don't think I'd install it.

    What if a ludicrous version is later added as an in app purchase? I thought the underline was for ludicrous.

    I saw about a dozen AWD and P-AWD cars at the Charlotte store and none of them had the "Dual Motor" badge. I think they are like the "40", "60", and "85" badges for the Model S that came out several months after the car was released.

    I agree. "Badges? We don't need no stinking badges!"

    It's more of a double red underscore for the P3D, versus a single thicker chrome underline for the P##/P###DLs.

    So... presumably when there is a Ludicrous option for the P3s, and there will be, they could just choose a different stylized underline.

    Any updates on whether the "Dual Motor" badges have started showing up on new deliveries?

    Tesla says badges will come eventually.

    They didn’t say “funding secured” so it might happen. ;)

    Though it would be funny to jack the badge from a test drive vehicle. You’d be a curiousity object gawked at for some time.

    Walking around the Georgia delivery center I don’t recall seeing any badges and they definitely don’t have any of the spoilers yet.

    Am I the only one who actually wants a badge? Seems like most people say they don’t want to install it. I think it makes the back look more finished.

    I am buying a P75D Badge off ebay to put on my P3D. I am not getting a "Model 3" badge for the other side of the trunk though.

    What do you guys think of that?
