Does anyone know if I can change my referral before I take delivery?
I should have considered an individual in town who actually guided me in many ways but I didn’t think he cared. I assigned it to someone else but I think he’d appreciate it.
Do they do this?
It's not new, it's been set to end Jan 31st the whole time
What happened yesterday was that Tesla Corporate sent out an email saying that it ends on 12/31/17. Many Owner Advisors quickly alerted folks to this change to the program. Shortly thereafter, Tesla Corporate sent out a revised version of the email that corrected the date to 1/31/18 causing many OA's to have to double back.
Nobody knows for sure, but I would guess that yes, the Roadster discount program will end on 1/31/18.
If they let it continue, then more and more people will hit the 10% discount threshold which means another "Founder's Edition" Roadster Tesla may need to sell (at a discount). There are already at least 80 people with that status.. I'm not sure how many more Founder's Edition Roadsters Tesla wants to be on the hook for.
And honestly, even if they'd have to give a thousand people their roadster for an average of 50% off, it would still be peanuts for them.
