    Wow, changed the prices about 6 weeks after the last price change that actually reduced the AWD cost

    Ballsy considering the tax credit clock started ticking.

    They need to reduce the EAP cost $1500

    Agree. If eap was $3500 I’d add it immediately. The 5k hurts.

    An additional $500 for colors other than solid black doesn't make sense, especially when it is lower for the S and X.

    Interesting that the price of AWD went up 1k but performance stayed the same, its a 10k upgrade now instead of 11k. During the earnings call they said that their Dual motor (performance and non) was 50% which was more than they expected. I'm wondering if they don't have the production capacity for that many more front drive units so they're raising the price the nudge a little demand back to RWD.

    $5K probably is the right price. They probably changed it because Elon tweeted less than $5K. Now that they have helped Elon save face, they are putting back where it belongs.

    Want to temp people to order performance over non-performance by closing the gap, making it more profitable for Tesla...

    Listen Linda,

    They will keep raising prices for options until the demand abates.

    As someone who's already ordered AWD NonP, this small change makes me feel like I got a great deal/value lol.

    and at the opposite end it could push someone down in price instead of up.

    LR battery pack $9,000
    AWD $5,000 (was 4,000 for a while)
    Premium Upgrades Package (PUP) $5000

    There are 9 major hardware configs

    1. $64,000 Performance
    2. $54,000 AWD "all in" AWD + PUP + LR
    3. $49,000 "First available" - PUP + LR - NO AWD
    4. $49,000 AWD LR - NO PUP
    5. $45,000 AWD PUP - NO LR
    6. $44,000 LR, no PUP, no AWD
    7. $40,000 PUP, no AWD, no LR
    8. $40,000 AWD - NO PUP - NO LR
    9. $35,000 BASE BASE BASE Model 3 with no major options.

    I'm on the fence between waiting for 5, 7, 8, or 9. Make AWD more expensive and maybe I drop lower on the config list. Don't know until the non PUP trim is revealed if I can live without that. If so and I get price conscious I could drop down to the bottom config.

    I'll get blue paint no matter what, I'm glad they aren't pushing that up in price like the MC red and MC white, since that would also push me down the config list.

    Paint option prices have also increased today by the same amount for the S/X. Check the Tesla website.

    I’m glad I ordered Sunday evening after my test drive. That’s a $1,700 difference.
