    Saw my first Model 3 yesterday in the wild near the Tesla store in Seaside, California. Beautiful car, and an interesting color that looked like a dark taupe silver. Almost a metallic brown. Not sure I've seen that anywhere, though maybe it was just the light (gray) and the backdrop (eucalyptus trees). But really pretty.
    Also spoke with a Tesla engineer at a family party in Atherton, who has a reservation but is delaying his Model 3 purchase until later next year "when the wrinkles are more ironed out".
    Might be an argument for dual motors.

    Yeah, that's the reason I don't feel bad about not getting mine until "Early 2019". Lots of time for the bugs to get worked out. There's not a service centre in my country, so if something big goes wrong I'll have to ship my car to Denmark :Þ Also, yeah, I want AWD if it's not too expensive.
