While I didn't hate the piano black console, I ended up spending $40 for a matte console wrap which takes care of the issue completely and looks great. Seems hardly necessary to go to 2021 just to get rid of the piano black console...
Well he did say he was insane ;)
The new console is definitely more practical and I really like the wireless phone chargers. But I'm not overly impressed with the choice of plastic finish. It looks and feels a bit cheap and I suspect it would easily get scratched/chipped if you actually used the cup holders. Not a big deal, maybe third time lucky if they have another attempt?

This means that EU is getting new motors on next delivery? About may-june.
Yes, I believe in April we will see the release of the Long Range with the 82kwh pack and new rear motor. Deliverys in May and June.

Would be interesting if someone with more knowledge would explain the benefits of the new motor design. The motors have the same power rating by the way, so don't expect some ludicrous new Performance model.

In the end it's not a question of IF, but WHEN!

Should this also affect Performance? That is usually getting first these changes. Or is that already new motor?

If you look at v16 Table 1 posted here, you will see that the new drive train is introduced in several variants incl. 2021 Performance.

Maybe it's just me but I'm having a difficult time deciphering the above table. Can someone explain or break-down what Table 1 above means? How can you tell Long Range vs. Performance from the information on the table? Also, there are 2 SR and 2 LR that show Panasonic 2170 C or L. What does this mean? Also, is this in effect now or sometime in the future? I apologize if I'm the only one that doesn't get it.

It only means that all of these options are validated to be delivered to customers. It does not mean that actual cars will be delivered with those combinations. Tesla is able to do so legally if they so decide.

But the table tell that LR-version can be delivered with all bigger battery variant including 82kWh Panasonic battery and Performance can be delivered with all variants including 75kWh LG battery. SR can be delivered with new Panasonic battery chemistry or old one or CATL Chemistry. It does not mean these combinations will be delivered or produced by Tesla. Only that those combinations have certified for EU deliveries.
