    I ordered my P90DL july and it came in same day the P100D was announced. There was no way I was taking delivery of it and already having old stuff. I called sales rep and told them they can keep the P90DL and order me a P100D.

    For 1 upgrade wont happen until Q4 of this year and its still a upgrade even though I will would of paid same $10K as if I ordered it new only diff is I pay $500 for auto pilot but no big deal.

    So they told me I would be getting the 1st one by end of Sept and moved my deposit over from the P90DL I ordered. Same exact build just P100D msrp is $162,750.

    Not sure if they did this because I had P85+ traded it in on P85D trading that in on the P100D and also have 2 model 3 on order or they know it was right thing to do. Either way I am very happy in 4 weeks I will get P100D and not have to wait for mine to be upgraded and still knowing I have a upgrade car vs getting a factory P100D.

    That's great that they take care of you. I think that's what was announced for existing P90D orders not taken delivery yet. However, that's not true for those of us with order of X90D and which to upgrade to P100DL. I would lose my deposit for sure.

    No upgrade possible from X90D to P100DL (yet).

    Could you ever upgrade a 90D to a P90DL anyway? Going from a P to an L seems doable (some state its not even hw related), but not going to P from a non P.

    Motor, connector, battery ... Too much difference. Plus the brakes, spoiler, pedals, badging.

    Right. If you are referring to my order, it was meant as changing the order from an X90D to P100DL.

    In the future I assume the upgrade the battery only, so X90D -> X100D.

    Gotcha.
    Would be the faster way to get a P100DL for sure, but you would loose the deposit, right ?

    I'd guess they did it for both reasons -- you are obviously a very good customer and it was the right thing to do. Which, if you look at it from the opposite point of view, looks,just as good -- you are dealing with a company that values good customers, and also believes in doing the right thing.

    Congratulations on your new P100D, and drive it in good health!

    Your Tesla has been built and is in transit from the factory. The delivery process guide will provide additional information about what to expect along the way. If you have questions, please contact your delivery specialist.

    Can't wait to see pictures, big!

    I bet since yours was top of the line ($$), and they're trying to boost revenue for quarter's end, yours cut the line big time.
