Background and Timeline: Existing owner, 2013 Model S P85 (sold), 2014 Model S P85D, 2016 Model X 90D Also, plenty of experience with Model 3 already as sister and brother-in-law have a VIN 5000's 2018 Model 3 LR RWD and I exercise my rights as eldest sibling and Tesla superfan to drive it whenever I want 3/31/2016 line waiter with reservation made at 2:30pm PST (didn't realize there would be so many people so I just showed up at 10am and had to wait 4 hours) First Production invite 12/16/2017 AWD/P invite and order confirmed 6/27/2018 (didn't technically get an invite, just found out on the forums) Edit button disappeared 7/21/2018 and applied for Tesla arranged loan Loan approved and reconfirmation of info online 7/22/2018 Phone call to schedule delivery 7/23/2018 Delivery today 7/26/2018 Delivery Experience: Online payment only became available approximately 3.5 hours prior to scheduled delivery Arrived at store a few minutes early and was greeted promptly and handed off to delivery specialist Loan documents signed within 5 minutes Contract computer still acting up and spitting out contracts with lots of blanks, but they seem to be making due Orientation of the Model 3 for my wife in the showroom car, approximately 20 minutes Our Model 3 was still being detailed but was brought out quickly and then delivery specialist finished my wife's orientation in the actual car, approximately 10 more minutes We did a thorough inspection and found a few minor defects Left the lot just over an hour after arriving All the staff were super friendly, delivery specialist was honest and upfront about the timeline and the fact that the car wasn't ready right when we arrived and that their contract system was acting up The store was very busy; multiple other people taking delivery at same time and a ton of foot traffic with lots of people crowding around the showroom cars Our 3 was apparently the first one with white interior and the first P variant they've delivered Cosmetic Condition: Overall good, but the detailing was clearly rushed and incomplete. QC is lacking. Multiple smudges (dirt, left over adhesive, etc.,) here and there on interior and exterior, but nothing requiring more than a little saliva to rub away Panel alignment is excellent; nothing catches the eye (a big difference from our VIN 5000's car which had noticeable panel gaps, sunken hood, protruding headlight, seal issues, etc.,) One small half inch by quarter inch paint defect on the corner of one of the front quarter panels along the wheel well, looks like an area that just wasn't painted; was pretty obvious so I'm surprised they didn't notice it Significant curb rash on one of the wheels Performance pedals came pre-installed Spoiler and Dual Motor badge not available, listed on the "due bill", no ETA, they'll call me when those items arrive, and schedule mobile service for install Apparent scratches on the touch screen, but then my wise wife said it's just the screen protector so we pulled it off and screen was perfect underneath Initial Impressions: This is definitely a Performance Tesla with a capital P, right up there with all the Model S and Model X P variants 0-60mph acceleration is not that much different than my P85D Ludicrous If the P85D Ludicrous is an instant fatal blow to the head, the 3P is a fatal blow to the head where you don't die instantly, but you die a moment or two later Cabin and road noise is excellent, similar to our S and X Haven't pushed the suspension yet, but driving home it felt similar to our S and X (in terms of absorbing bumps) Sound system... spectacular. If the S sound system is an 7/10 and the X sound system is a 10/10, I'd say the 3 sound system is 9.5/10, beat by the X only because the X subwoofer is ever so slightly deeper and cleaner White seats are super comfortable, definitely softer than anything we've had before Center console is the same glossy black fingerprint magnet so I went home and immediately put on the white Kenriko wrap (pic below) That's it for now. Gonna play with the car a week then bring it back for service to repair the paint defect and curb rash, then off to detailer for Xpel wrap and tint. Then spoiler and badge install at some point in the future.
