    So as it turns out, the 3 is getting a new center console, darker headliner, electric trunk, black exterior trim, and double pane windows! I did here rumors of this but wasn’t thinking it would be this soon

    Probably the biggest change to a Tesla model after AP 1 to 2

    I'd be curious to see what the car looks like for somebody that gets a new delivery this week

    A heat pump, acoustic glass, power trunk lid, new upholstery, and new center console are about as “refresh” as Tesla has ever done.

    If this all comes to pass I’ll be a little envious. The two things I don’t like about my car are wind noise and heater consumption.

    “Coming off the line now” is a pretty strong statement. If true we’ll see the cars showroom and today is the first day after the end of Q3 that cars are no longer eligible to return for a refund. Clever.

    I would love a darker interior. I'm actually eyeing the unplugged performance alcantara kit.

    I would also assume that the new tail lights from the Model Y will also come to the 3 as well?

    Glad I elected to push back delivery until later this quarter! Anyone know how long it takes for a car to get from rolling off production to delivery? I guess that’s when we will really know.

    Double pane glass would be a welcome addition to the fleet. Odd they are starting that change with the 3 but good because I’m hoping to be able to retrofit to my Y.

    Gonna make myself feel better by saying the power trunk and double pane windows are gonna add weight and negatively impact performance and efficiency.

    This is very similar to the Model S refresh in early 2016, where the S was updated to include a number of features, enhancements, and updated components that were first included in the X.

    Now we're doing the same thing with 3/Y.

    Also, if you want a power trunk, it can be added pretty easily.

    Hey guys,

    have you seen this?
    Tesla is doing a Model 3 refresh and we've seen it - Electrek

    It looks like we will see all the missing features from model Y in the newly refreshed model 3 very soon!
    I would really like to know how soon they are going to roll out the refreshed version, because I was about to place my order tonight :(

    The search on this website works surprisingly well for a forum. When I search for Tesla Model 3 refresh, the first few hits are:

    Model 3 Refresh?!
    Changes to model 3
    M3 Refresh

    (and your post as wel)

    I mention this because you joined yesterday and may not be aware that the search here is actually good.

    Sorry! You are totally right. I should have checked it before posting. I apologize.

    Guys, how about we try to contact our salespeople at Tesla and cross-check the ETA for the delivery of the new M3 version?
    I was about to place an order tonight and I just saw this news :)
