Most likely the configuration I'd order. Maybe even 2.

    @QwiksilverA4 Did you happen to notice, or get a picture, of the VIN tag?

    Does the dealer plate make it an RC?

    It would also be neat to see if there is a charging port under the car to support autonomous floor charging.

    This color looks surprisingly good. Has a Model 3 with this color been spotted with the aero wheels? I'm curious to see what that combo will look like.

    Any idea if that is Production or RC?

    If you see a Model 3 again, please grab a picture of the VIN. Thanks!

    for sure, i see one prob once a day now, just not upclose like i was today. Im very surprised with how the doors opened.
    The latch is actually pulling out towards the front the car. it looks like a very very cheaply made car. a very good alt. to the leaf or volt or fiat.

    Really....that does not sound good. I do not think the price point is cheap so could there be a mismatch here?

    How does it compare to a BMW 3 series or Audi A4....cheaper or as cheap?

    Let me rephrase, from the MODEL S its a completely different car. Still none the less, Model 3 is a cooler car than anything else in the market for 35k. Depreciation cant be that bad on a 3 either.

    That grey color is too dark, it'll show dirt and dents and dings too easily.

    Forget the VIN, can someone look into the front passenger wheel well and see if there is the battery size label attached? I'm hoping to see one when I drive down to Disney this upcoming week and take a peak in the wheel well for any indication of battery pack info.

    I may have just been on the X forums too frequently during initial production ramp up but the panel gaps on these pics is brutal. Car looks sexy in that color, though.

    Can you say more about your impression of the car being "very very cheaply made" - is it Chevy Spark level or more comparable to a BMW 3 series/Audi A4?
