    Hi everyone,

    A few days ago, I put down a deposit on an inventory. Today, I noticed that custom order is only $4,000 more, which comes with air suspension and premium speaker. Did I get a bad deal?

    Those are both personal decisions, but about worth the added cost/value. I personally like having both options, I'd probably pay $4k (US$3200) to have them. But it's not a bad deal if you don't get them.

    Good luck!

    I have both and love them. Depends on your budget I guess. Did you noticed de P100d in inventory wich is 30 000$ less than the custom order ?

    If I custom order, I don't get low interest rate :(

    P100D is definitely out of my budget.

    Does it do what you want? If so, ENJOY it. ;)

    First rule about new car buying: there will ALWAYS be a deal with better value after you pull the trigger. No sense in beating yourself up (unless the car you just bought got like 25% cheaper overnight....then I'd probably beat myself up a bit.)

    Also you could get free unlimited Supercharging and save $1400 if you use a referral code. If you have a friend who owns a Tesla and helped you out you can ask them for one or PM me and I can send you one.

    Edit: By the way, I have standard suspension on mine and wouldn't change that. Even in snow it's fine and less parts to worry about when out of warranty. Sound can be upgraded after market for less than premium sound cost.

    A new build will also likely get you the increased performance specs. Check to see if this inventory car has it, I doubt it does though.

    Also, make sure you apply a referral code to your order for $1,400 off either way you go.

    I have air suspension and I think I used it once or twice to lower the car. Maybe some use it all the time but for my use it doesn't matter at all. Enjoy your new, awesome, vehicle.

    I had the premium sound in my original P85. It was decent, but not spectacular. I didn't bother with it on my 100D and I don't miss it.

    Air suspension is a nice-to-have. It's handy for going over the occasional really high curb, but there are other ways to deal with that.

    I use the very high on the suspension all the time in parking lots. Even on very high I had problems with a concrete parking stopper! I would not have an S without it as the body is so low already.

    Compared to the premium sound, don't you find the navigation volume to be too low (even when it's maxed) when you have the player volume at 6 or above? I'm not sure if it's just my car or all Tesla's with standard sound have that issue.

    Never noticed. I usually have navigation muted. I often turn on navigation just to track power utilization in the Energy App, and to help predict arrival time. If I'm in an unfamiliar area with complex turns, then I turn on the sound. And if the music is too loud I turn it down.
