    It's my understanding that for the deposit on March 31 in the store, I will not need to indicate any options. I assume this is correct since a list of options will most likely not be available for some time to come. Is this correct? Thanks.

    At this point it's all speculation... But everyone here will tell you that you are just putting down $1000 to gain a place in the reservation system, which will indicate who gets to configure their car first, which will take place in 2017 according to the current schedule.

    i'll add that, it would be pretty unrealistic for them to ask us to choose these things now anyways... Most of us will need time to decide on the options, and they will be trying to process as many reservations as possible, as fast as possible. Plus we won't know the options until later that day.

    Correct. They're not going to reveal all the options on the 31st.

    I'd like to know if I can use my credit from the last promotion, to pay for a Model 3 deposit.

    I don't think there will be any options for you to choose. That will be in the order confirmed status. Tesla may not have decided what will be option and what will not be. They may also come up with more options in the next year so it is not likely for them to give you a list of options on Mar 31. Also at that stage you're basically confirming your order and placing it and the deposit won't be refundable too.

    I don't see why you couldn't, but I'm not a Tesla official.

    It should if history serves as a guide.

    I think Lerxt means after the order is placed and confirmed, in 2017/18. After that the deposit isn't refundable.

    I meant if the potential customer selected options, the deposit would be not refundable.

    My apologies for taking your quote out of context.
