I see, sorry I misunderstood then. But also: does anyone know if the new fee counts towards the cost of the car? By calling it a "fee" instead of a "deposit", I'm wondering if it is effectively an extra $100 price increase on the car (so another $95-97 for Tesla after fees).
Deposits, refundable or not, are pretty traditionally the first <fee amount> payment towards the thing you're buying. IN this case, the first $100 towards the car you want to buy.
