    Over the weekend I saw three 3s (two white and a red) and saw another on Friday as well (MSM). Two of them were in the Lakeland Hills area of Auburn and the other two were on I-5 north and south in the fife area.

    I am a bit surprised at seeing so many already with only $50,000+ versions being available thus far. Can’t fully imagine what it’s going to look like when more affordable versions are available.

    It got me thinking that it is going to be grea to see so many cars being the 3 in the next few years. It’s going to be weird with only 5 colors and our cars looking like everyone else’s but is going to be amazing to see Musk’s master plan becoming a reality.

    I was surprised to see that over half of people in a recent poll said they were considering an electric vehicle as their next vehicle. That surprised me quite a bit at this stage but makes me happy!

    So, how often are you guys seeing 3s?

    I'm seeing more 3's than Bolt's or 2018 Leafs around Western WA.

    It is a rare day when I don't see at least one around Issaquah. My immediate neighborhood of about 80 houses has at least 6 already.

    I usually see about 4-5 on just my morning commute from Issaquah to Seattle. There’s at least three owners in our Issaquah Highland development.

    Super exciting. I’m hoping to be one of the first in our development but I’m probably 10 months away so we will see what happens.

    We're up in Edmonds, we have seen about 1 a day for the last couple of months, We've seen Blue, Red, Silver, Black and yesterday we saw white over in Woodenville. I've looked at Vin numbers when they've been parked, Highest so far was 19+K. No obvious fit issues with that one.

    If you live in Milton, I'd say you have a good shot at being the first :)

    Haha. Used to. Live in Lakeland Hills in Auburn now. I think there are a couple that reside somewhere around here already but I don’t know for sure.

    I think I’m now seeing more 3s than Model S on a given day. Impressive growth!

    To the point where on a 20-30 min commute to work I typically see one or two.

    I expect that to double within the next 2-3 months.

    Yeah the spread is much more than I expected without the standard battery being available yet. We are going to be the new Prius. At least the 3 looks much better ;)

    I see 5-10 per day but I work in tech where there are many Tesla owners (the majority of electric vehicles where I work).

    In Portland (I know, not what you were asking) I see them all the time. Multiple sightings every day.

    I see at least 4 per day from Sammamish to Kirkland. I almost got in the wrong one today.
