    Exellent!
    For those who have placed an order for the 3.0 battery, please add your information to the table in the Wiki post near the top of this thread (link below) so we can track battery orders placed and installations. Thanks.

    I haven't seen it posted in this forum yet, but an article in the NASDAQ news site saying that Tesla is in negotition with LG Chem for the 400 mile replacement Roadster battery. Sorry I didn't get the link.

    I'm just waiting for word on how my Battery Replacement Agreement (which hits the 7-year mark next month) will affect my price.

    For the upgrade posted on the tesla website, I've heard 74KWh. It should be possible to calculate the weight pretty accurately, knowing the weight of the HG2 cells :)

    Curt, my understanding is that you can use your Battery Replacement option, along with an additional $6k, and get the upgraded version.

    Did any of you get any email after placing the order for the upgrade?
    I received an automated "thank you for your order..." but nothing more.

    Right. It's been posted on the forum. I was also told that directly by Tesla.
