Standard or LR?

Just about to push order button but already have a bit of range anxiety! I average around 180 miles per day of city driving 3-4 days a week. I’ve been told that I should get ~200-220 miles real world. I live on Long Island so we have moderate cold in winter, but usually stay low 30s so that shouldn’t be a factor for the most part. Also have a decent amount of Superchargers on my route but don’t want to have to rely on them for my commute. I guess I’m looking for some affirmation that the standard model should suffice most of the time. Thanks in advance!
LIE to the city has very little superchargers. If you really are doing "city driving", like all on the island, then the SR should be good enough. The Model3 is very efficient in"city driving" (stop and go). If you mean city driving as in driving to the city and back, I don't see how that's 187 miles... but if you are driving 187 mostly on highways then SR is not enough in the winter for sure.
