Second Model S Plaid just got VIN assigned: Keep the first one or sell it and take second?

I had two Plaids on order. The more expensive one that I ordered in June got a VIN and I purchased it. {Black/cream/wood/19inch wheels.}

My oldest reservation (Jan 2021) just got a VIN assigned 🙄 one week later. It’s $10k less because of when I reserved it. It’s Black/Cream/CF/Arachnids.

Should I try and sell the first one I got and put it towards the second or release the reservation for someone else?

The pain and misery I went through to get the first one is almost enough to make me pay the extra 10k and take a break from Tesla and all of their money games. Plus the wood grain is sort of growing on me.

Any thoughts?
