    Will white interior have the wood grain or white trim on the dashboard ? I am leaning towards white interior, but would still like to have wooden trim.

    So non-employee 3's are supposed to start being delivered next month, right? Has any non-employee reservation holder been able to configure their 3 yet?

    I’m leaning toward white mainly to get rid of the wood trim.

    I am afraid that white plastic sitting in the sun over time will start to turn yellow. Might be several years before you notice the difference, but it will happen. I guess sun shades might be a way to protect it.

    Tesla glass has UV protection so I it might not be an issue. That said, I would want the white interior but not if the dash is white. I think it would generate too much of a reflection on the windshield.

    My source isn't 100% sure on the roll out but told me that Tesla is no longer asking employees not to post on social media and the design studio will roll out in order of reservation/date/location starting this or next Monday. And each week the next batch of reservation holders will be invited and so on...

    I don't think you guys are disagreeing. Cash or Loan only mean no leases yet. He said they accept trade ins.

    Well thank you. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Not sure I'm up for conversions to other currencies quite yet. Glad you found it useful.

    My thanks also! One suggestion, maybe use $4K as an estimate for AWD? Elon tweeted a while ago that AWD on the M3 would be less than on the MS.

    Edit: And add $3K or something for SAS option?

    From what I’ve read here and elsewhere Tesla offers you a trade in amount — and may match a trade in offer from Carmax — and may use a third party to dispose of trades, with exception of Tesla trade ins.

    Agree with you. I'll change it to $4000 as you suggest until official price is announced based on Musks previous saying this would cost less on M3 as you mentioned.

    My employee contact told me that early last week, he was assigned a delivery specialist and was told that a VIN would be assigned by the end of the week.

    He was also briefed on the policy, can't sell the car for one year & can't post anything negative on social media. (I asked him if I can share what he told me (info above) on the Tesla forum and he said it's fine as long as it's not negative...don't want to get him in trouble.)

    But he told me he received a call Friday (from his delivery specialist) that he probably heard that the Model 3 is delayed and that includes his until further notice...so I guess they are resolving something

    Can't post anything negative....:rolleyes:
    Is an in-depth review of the center display by default "negative"? Why we're all those videos getting yanked?
