When I reserved a year ago, I was planning on getting the 40kWh Model S without any options. When options were announced, I had to have the Tech package. The the sticker price only went up from there. After the test drive, I had to have the air suspension and my wife insisted on getting the Sunroof. The extra service fee added another $1,900. Recently, I found out that memory was not included with the textile seats. I had already accepted that the fabric seats would not be heated, but the looming price increase made us somehow justify upgrading to leather to get memory and heated seats. We are now looking at spending over $10,000 above what was originally planned. I try to rationalize the purchase every day, but I know that the decision to purchase would be an emotional one. We got our time-to-configure email two months ago, which was earlier than I expected, since the delivery estimate has been around March. I hoped to have the specs and EPA estimates for the 40kWh before finalizing, but now I don't think that's going to happen without having to pay the price increase. We decided that we needed to raise some extra funds to justify the purchase. I am selling some unused things on ebay and craigslist that I have been wanting to get rid of for a while. My wife is also trying to raise some Tesla funds for me. She is a jewelry designer, but she left her full-time job to take care of our newborn daughter almost a year ago. She now works on her own fine jewelry line at home. She up-cycles antique and vintage jewelry using reclaimed materials whenever possible. Each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind. So, if you are looking for a holiday gift for your special someone, please consider purchasing one of her hand-made pieces to support my Tesla addiction . They are available here.
