    I think this would be a common use case for most buyers, maybe a long the lines of what Elon was thing when he said ~$42,000 on average (estimates based on above pricing). $43,000 USD (8,5000 in upgrades).

    Autopilot convenience features ($2500 for S)
    Glass Roof / Sunroof ($2,500)
    Sound system ($1500)
    Premium paint ($1000)
    Premium wheels ($1000)

    They should include more of these features in the base cost to increase the efficiency and productivity of their supply chain and manufacturing :)

    I totally agree with this more than the guys saying 55k.. someone suggested Performance with ludicrous mode for only $3k, really?? Until they break the mold you have to use the S/X as the basis for comparison, with no options a base 70 is like $72.5k vs a fully loaded P90DL around $140k+!

    To be honest I think Tesla loses money on Base Model 3, they have to make some profit off the options to survive.

    Smart laser headlights are the latest and greatest. The sensors should be there for them.

    I thought the pano roof was standard but getting the impression this isn't the case? If not, I'm definitely upgrading to pano roof. Leather is also a must for me. Lastly a good sound system. I 'think' I can upgrade the battery at a later date if needed correct? I may go for AWD depending on the cost of other options.

    Autopilot, supercharging if it's not included, and the hitch.

    Don't forget that Tesla sells their Zero Emissions Credits to other auto companies. In Q3 of 2015 the sold 11k vehicles and cashed $51 million from selling their credits.

    I'd save the $1500 on a sound system. Do it yourself for a fraction of the cost.

    Everything but the UHF, unless I can hear it first and am blown away.

    AWD and (hopefully) a winter package are a must for me. Others I'd like to have but will wait and see how they get priced:

    Leather
    Pano roof
    Battery
    Premium sound
    Smart suspension
    Paint upgrade

    Largest available battery, for additional range and speeding up Supercharging
    Supercharging enabled (I wonder if that might be bundled with larger battery sizes to help keep the wait at SCs shorter - easier to get the charge you need in less time to make the next leg of your trip.)
    AWD
    Full autopilot
    Air suspension
    Glass roof (One of the points of getting this thing is being able to drive it places that are really beautiful, like Yosemite. Looking up will have its perks - not to mention lowering the weight of the vehicle, thus increasing range.)
    Tow hitch (As Elon mentioned in tweets over the weekend.)

    If this clocks in at $50-55k, that's still half the price of an X configured the way that I want.

    I'm crossing my fingers that this sort of configuration, plus being in California, plus getting a reservation while waiting in line at a store on March 31 will get me the car (even though I won't have an S or an X if I stay with the 3) before the $7500 tax credit expires.

    As much autopilot as they offer, bigger battery, supercharger of it costs more, and a sun roof. That's all I need :)

    The option I will definitely not chose us wheel upgrade. The model s upgrade is around $2k! Pretty you could sell the original wheels and upgrade with aftermarket wheels for less than $1k
