    SpaceX owners? You mean all the people with a Falcon 9 in their garage?

    Please update your thread title to say "...Space X Employees" not Owners

    Hey this way only Elon will get his car before anyone else.

    This step will cause more complaints from nonowners, so I was hoping they would avoid it. But now since they have done it, I support their decision. Tesla and Spacex are siblings, they have helped each other by sharing technologies. It makes sense to allow Spacex employees to have early access too.

    As a SolarCity employee I did a little happy dance when I read this. First Tesla employees, then SpaceX employees, now let's hope that Musk's third baby has the same consideration come Monday or Tuesday!

    You can't. Easiest way is to click report on your first post, then ask the mods to edit it.

    Are RHD Model 3 owners at the very back of the queue or in the same spot as European orders?

    I think it's awesome. I also will be shocked if there's not at least one person that files a lawsuit against Tesla for preferential treatment to employees and SpaceXers claiming a gerrymandered tax credit scheme. Hope not.

    Much better to keep the initial run problems in the family. My wife is looking forward to a post Beta Model 3.

    I have to admit, I'm somewhat disappointed. Been a tesla fan for a while now, and was looking forward to reserving the M3 with the hope of getting the full tax rebate.

    Too bad, just have to wait a bit longer I guess.

    You guys are missing the point. The people who are reserving early are missing all the fun of camping out in line and having that "well earned" feeling.

    I'm happy employees of Elons other companies will get their cars first. They deserve it!
