The community of the Model 3 (I like how you guys write M3 so coolly; there is that momentary Pavlovian jolt of the memory of that M3 and every erection, sorry, I meant reaction you have ever had when a friend or a coworker gave you a ride in one; I really have to learn to use "M3" in reference to a Tesla as easily as you do) is growing daily. I wonder if you have compiled a statistic of how many have bought the car sight unseen. I have watched every Larry Benjamin video. For the record, I think the guy is a prince among men and is doing God's work on YouTube. I feel like I have been in, around and under a M3 (nice, I am doing it already!). I feel like I know all there is to know. I have done the math every which way and convinced myself that a $44K EV I can buy now makes every bit as much sense as the $25K EV I thought I was signing up for two years ago. I am prepared to love the car. But is is freaking weird to be buying a $44K car I have not laid my eyes on in person, much less sat in. Tell me if this has ever happened to you, or if you ever in your wildest dreams thought it could happen to you when shopping for a new car. A salesman in a fancy Tesla showroom telling you to go on Turo to find someone renting out a Model 3 for $50/day (in reality, more like $160/day) and check the car out that day. That's when the madness of the M3 buying process really hit home for me. Fashion Island is the only showroom in Orange County, I was told, that has a physical M3 to touch and sit it. Not drive, God forbid, of course not! My wife got an appointment for us to sit in their M3 last Saturday. For one, I want to make sure that at 6'2" I will be comfortable, and the person behind me will be reasonably comfortable. Guess what, their M3 went MIA just before we got there. According to the salesguy, some idiot (prospective buyer) ripped of a door handle by mistake. Another story I heard in the showroom is that it was being used in a "special event", and another -- that it is being detailed. They couldn't even get their story straight. The car will be back some time this week. The guy then suggested we go down the street to the Delivery Center and ogle the cars they have there in plenitude. Only to be corrected by the manager who said they have all been moved inside and none are visible from the street. So, three questions. How many (show of hands or percentage if known) bought the car sight unseen? If you did get to see and sit in the car prior to the purchase, what hoops did you have to jump through to get your butt in? And does anyone in OC with a Model 3 want to make friends and show me theirs? I'll buy lunch.
