    I have an actual M3 and I rather like calling the Model 3 an M3. Has a nice ring to it.

    Actually, I've seen MS and MX a few times.

    What we need more is for people to start including the S and X when talking about their cars. So instead of 70D or P90D, which could be an S or an X, maybe write S-70D or X-P90D.

    UPDATE: Changed P85 to 70D, as there is no X P85, and I was trying to demonstrate ambiguity.

    I had a reservation for an MX, but I dropped it because the towing capacity wasn't enough to replace my truck. I decided to wait for the M3 and keep the truck. I'm thinking about get a CPO MS until the M3 arrives.
    :p

    I say MS and MX all the time. Tesla M3 will soon take over the M3 acronym from BMW. ICE cars will be a thing of the past. Just like how when my grandpa grew up gay meant happy and cheerful and a bitch was a female dog.

    Don't you worry. Evertime I call them out I ether use the full name, or the shorthand: TMS, TMX and TM3.

    I have a hard time with this acronym, too. I miss my M3 sometimes, but I'm looking forward to my 3 in a couple years. Argh. Yeah I have no idea what to call it! I call my S an S85. So I assume I'll call the next one a 3-90 or 3-whatever kW battery.

    In spite of the "owner of an actual M3" snark, I'm kinda with Ppower. Plus, outside of TMC (and apparently even within it) it has the potential to cause confusion. Is 'Model 3' that hard to type?

    -signed the person who generally texts in complete sentences, so make of that what you will.
