    There's been a lot of talk about the tax credits for those in the US, but I wanted to get a measure of how important that is and what we would do with it.

    I don't get a tax credit in this country and province.

    I am going to buy the car as I would if there was no credit. Pick the options I can afford/want and buy the EXACT car I want without worrying about its delivery date (especially if the color I want causes a delay like the red did on the Model S - I don't care, I will wait. )

    I have never gotten to custom order a car before, so this will be my first time. In the past it has always seemed too extravagant to custom order a car and pay possibly full MSRP when I could bargain down a car already on the lot. But Teslas all cost the same - no dealer prices to negotiate. So I will get to order the exact color/options etc, I want, it's very exciting!

    If I get a credit, it will just be a bonus discount on the car. I have already gotten one full credit on my Volt, so I have already taken advantage of the program.

    Same here. I'll be ordering based on what I need while trying to keep the price down. This will be a stylish commuter for us after all.

    If we get the tax credit, I'll consider it a bonus. I was sad to find out there was a limit on it but I've come to terms with it.

    In France, I deduce 6300€ of the total price with TVA (20%) and if I change my old TDI car (10 years and plus) I receive 3700€ more. I think I buy the dual motor and more battery for my Model 3.

    Results are what I figured would be. I'd personally get the car the way I want, but if I feel like I'd get the full credit I'd definitely throw in some extravagance (P or ludicrous)
