Just took delivery 2 days ago on my second Tesla. Had a 2018 Model S 75D, now a 2021 Model 3 Perf.

It has the classic Dual Motor badge, but that is underlined with a thin red line, which I've learned signifies Perf.

A few years ago, Perf 3's had a P3D or P3D+ badge, where the P and the D were red. I think they look cool.

Is there any absolute reason to NOT do that? ;)

The only factory badges that were ever applied to Model 3 cars were "Dual Motor" and "Dual Motor" with the red underline. Any other badges you might have seen were aftermarket. Of course, you can do whatever you like.

yeah, ike @miimura said, Model 3's never came with those badges. Also, all S, X, and Y's now use this same badging. I rather have no badging but oh well...I rather not deal with having to re-apply the badge when returning the lease.

Model 3 Performance never had a P3D badge. Those are all aftermarket.
