    Let's be right-there's no "just" in any of the Model 3's :)

    Went with the standard aero wheels as figured better for range and prefer softer ride on 18s...

    Out of interest, has anyone else heard that the alloys are changing on the M3P's mid-April? Something about lighter (in weight) wheels, still grey, but a different design (more aerodynamic)?

    Ahh, just seen-it's the new Track Package. Looks awesome, but expensive.

    Just had an email about signing when it’s delivered. So it’s coming

    So, who thinks Tesla's "June" estimate for new orders might be a tad optimistic?

    Only thing I am wondering is whether they will stick to their usual cycle of building and delivering cars to Europe within the Q or if they will change their approach.

    Sticking to usual cycle is probably easier logistically but they can't actually build anything right now to put on a ship that would normally depart in April/May? So are they just not going to bother with Europe cars until July onwards for Aug/Sept delivery? Surely that will mean a terrible Q2 and potentially even Q3

    Anyway, just thinking at loud as no one knows I guess.

    I suspect it will be based on demand in the coming months. Inventory cars seem to be sticking around, unless they're adding more and more new ones replacing the ones sold, so I'd be surprised if they start cranking them out again in massive numbers while the market is depressed.

    Did he say where he's delivering from? I can be matched to a car but have no way of getting to either Heathrow or Westfield during lockdown but Tesla won't confirm a delivery. Spoke to a very helpful lady today and they even called me back - I was in shock!

    Did I miss something, do they not come with charge cables anymore?

    They do, but they're out of stock nationwide it would appear.

    I haven't specifically been told that I won't get a cable but I forgot to ask, it'll be interesting to see if/when it arrives tomorrow.

    No further updates, no changes to the account after the new VIN appeared and no changes to the app.

    That's what I've been told. I'd rather they didn't but it isn't too far and it's better than waiting another 3 weeks or more to see it.

    Same with mine on Friday it’s only 51 miles so hopefully still under 100 miles so worth it for me. Just need to get some wipes to give it a good clean before enjoying.
