    I ogle every Model 3 like I've never seen one before. LOL

    You get Macbook pricing too. $2,000 for a $20 paint job. :D

    Yeah, $20 paint job, $1980 donation to Tesla to prosper. Very economic! :rolleyes:

    This. Plus I believe EVs will have a big positive impact on pollution/climate change etc.

    I think you are on to something. Being public isn't working out for Tesla. Trying to go private was a bust.

    They might as well F it and declare 501(c)(3).

    My tax write offs would be epic.

    Going to tweet Elon and credit the two of us for the idea.

    He can buy a roadster *shrug*. Whenever a product is competitively priced with superior desirability it’s going to become common.

    Absolutely. I was a fan of Tesla and their mission long before I became a stockholder.

    While it was kind of fun having it be unique for a bit, everyone asking how I liked it, etc; I’d much rather all the cars on the road be Tesla, saving the planet. I’m thrilled and repeatedly surprised by how many I’m spotting recently in California. Sad that EVs haven’t reached this density everywhere yet, I can’t wait until they do!

    I would love more of them so (some) people don’t make a big deal about my M3. I love the car, just not the extra attention some give it.

    I think most of us forget that sometimes. It's fun to be cool, but the real point of going electric is to reduce pollution/climate change blah blah.

    I´ve been in Stuttgart recently, one of the german cities with the highest nox/nano-particle-whatever smog values.
    Near the Porsche center it`s nearly as loud as on a race track and the air smeels like i`d be licking an exhaust pipe.

    So I can wholeheartedly say that I absolutely don`t care about how some Tesla owners might not feel like special little snowflakes anymore and that I just want a LOT more Model 3s or other EVs on the streets.

    Doesn`t hurt my shares either :p

    EVs might barely make a dent in the overall CO2 scheme, but widespread adoption would make a giant difference in life quality in any bigger city.
    Can you imagine a city like LA or New York without the constant roaring of hundreds of thousands engines?

    Maybe for you it was. Neither the opinions of others nor the environment factored into why I bought my car.

    Sure, we feel special driving our Model 3's, but let's not lose sight of the real goal. I dream of a day where we go out driving and 100% of the cars on the road are electric! What a wonderful world it would be if everyone had our cars!

    I get excited to see other Teslas beside me on the road!

    It is like the feeling of kinship, like seeing relatives.

    The more I see, the merrier it is.

    Tesla drivers are polite to other Tesla drivers too. I hope it last as it scales out and up.

    Other than that idiotic law that is going to make noise emitters in EVs a required feature starting soon.
