How noticeable is the acceleration boost from a dual motor long range to a performance Model 3?

Not necessarily. I have a LR RWD with no emblem. And many people who purchase the AWD or Performance models elect not to add the badges. I suppose someone with an SR+ could buy an emblem to make it look like they have a higher trim level if they really wanted to. But I don’t think it happens very often.

LR RWD doesnt have an emblem to start with.

I want people to think I have the cheapest one, for many reasons. Plus I HATE badges. So want to remove the 'DUAL MOTOR' badge since day 1... BUT, are there any holes behind it? I assume the answer is NO, since some models don't have a badge, but rather ask first :). Thanks.

No holes - just use a hair dryer (gently!) and a piece of dental floss to remove.
Haven’t seen holes like that since the 70s. :)

I feel ya! Same here. I de-badged my stealth completely, but added a "wolf in sheep's clothing" sticker to indicate that maybe I'm hiding something. Then I added the Mazda license frames to add to the nonsense. :D

How noticeable is the improvement from the 4.4 seconds 0-60 of the dual motor long range model to the 3.2 seconds of the performance model? I know it's 1.2 seconds quicker to 60 but how does that translate to the seat of the pants experience of driving the car?

The semi-quant way to express this is the ratio of max G force between the two cars
