Does anyone want a $3k discount on an 3YP with FSD?

Hello all,

Last February I made a reservation for a 3YP with 21" wheels, midnight silver metallic paint, white interior and FSD for $69,900. I never ended up using the reservation (it was our 3rd reservation) and now Tesla is saying it will expire on 4/20/21. The same car built today is $72,990 plus delivery fees. If you want to buy my reservation for the $100 I paid for it (assuming you are allowed to transfer it), I'd love to save someone some money.

PM me if you are interested.
 
It's just a reservation, not a car. I assume the person would have to use the reservation very soon. Below is the text of the email from Tesla:

We’re contacting you regarding the Model Y you ordered on February 25, 2020 to offer any assistance in bringing your car home. We’re excited to deliver your Model Y at your earliest convenience and welcome you to the Tesla family.​
Your order is set to cancel soon, but if you still intend to take delivery, please contact [email protected] by April 20, 2021.​
If we do not hear from you by this date, we will assume that you no longer wish to purchase a vehicle. Your order will automatically be cancelled and your order fee forfeited.​
Thank you for supporting the world’s transition to sustainable energy.​
Best Regards,
The Tesla Team​
 
If you read your reservation agreement, it says:

"This Agreement is not transferable or assignable to another party without the prior written approval of a Tesla authorized representative."

I've never heard of a case that a stranger can transfer the reservation to another.

Good luck!

I'm pretty sure I've read about people finding ways around that (or Tesla not caring if it is transferred). Either way, I thought I'd offer it up. No harm if it doesn't work.
