    Does anyone know if (as a M3 reservation customer) I can refer someone and claim the kids car?

    Obviously I can still cancel my M3 reservation (not that I plan to).

    Cheers.

    You need a referral code and they're only given to owners. If you know someone looking to buy, maybe someone here from the UK will give you their code, and the kid's car. I'd give you my code, and the kid's car, but I'm in Canada so it won't work.

    You may have a "Reservation Number" but not a "Referral Code" in your MyTesla.

    Do we know if Model 3 buyers will get a referral code?

    If you do, part of it will be your first name. I doubt you do though if you currently don't own a Tesla.

    Referral program(s) are to incentivize people to purchase the car. Why does Tesla need to do this for the Model 3 when they have about 500,000 reservations and are getting about 1,800 more a day doing nothing?

    You've misunderstood my post. I have a M3 reservation and want to refer someone for a MX

    Ah, gotcha. It's still really the same answer so far.

    I can see 3 owners being allowed to refer new S and X owners but since there aren't any non-employee 3 owners yet, that is to be decided.

    You might want to drop a note to the referral program email address. I think it's on the website and is probably [email protected].

    I have a friend with a model 3 reservation (estimated delivery sitting 2018). He tells me he cannot use my referral code to get $1k of his model 3. Not quite sure how he determined this, but it was through Tesla somehow.

    As to the original question, I agree with others that we won't know for sure until deliveries start for non-employee owners. My intuition is that even if they get access to the program, it will be for model X and S referrals only.

    Tesla referral program is for current owners to refer people. As a 3 reservation holder you are not an owner.

    On Tesla referral program page:

    The referral code is in the "Manage" page. My 3 does not have such option when I click Manage on the 3 reservation. On my X it's there.

    Your friend is correct. Tesla program rules. We are MS owners and ordered a Model 3 and couldn't even give ourselves $1k off the M3. If I wanted to order an MS we could. No free supercharging on the M3 either.

    That matches the rules of the referral program. It's for existing owners (so Roadster, S, or X owners) to offer $1K off of a new S or X (even the Roadster isn't listed, which only makes sense as they're no longer for sale by Tesla). No $1K off of a 3. Again, it makes sense as the referral program is to help sell the S/X and not the 3.
