    Going into MyTesla today, saw the following note related to Tesla update today of supercharging and referral program.

    Capture.JPG

    Background:
    I am 2nd owner on a Roadster.
    I have not owned S or X before.
    I have a Model 3 reservation.

    It's good to know that I can get unlimited supercharging on a future S/X order, however I'd much rather have it on my upcoming Model 3. Maybe there's a shot for that?

    Obviously my 'current Tesla' (Roadster) cannot supercharge, but it sure feels like it would be free unlimited if it could...:rolleyes:

    (Other minutiae: my Signature Green Roadster 1.5 has always shown up as a generic 2.5 in black in MyTesla, but on this updated page it is even more blacked out and suddenly has a white roof! I guess that was to help me notice the update...)

    I think there is zero chance on a Model 3 though I'm hoping for the same thing.

    That's funny... I just went to check our My Tesla page and same thing. It's been a generic black Roadster and the white roof is new to me too.

    I just checked ours and it has the same statement. So, I emailed them to obtain clarification. Let's see how they respond.

    Curious to see. I think it just means they didn't forget about us as owners, which is a good thing. We continue to carry the perk on new S or X purchase just like other owners before the switch to pay-per-use / free 400 kwh system.

    Mine shows a black top :) but says the same thing about any new S or X - no surprise, the model 3 reservation doesn't talk about that...

    I got an email (and voice message) from Tesla this morning and essentially it says:

    "Unfortunately, free super charging will not be offered for Model 3, this will only be for Model S and X"

    Oh well, it was worth a shot!

    And now the text is gone.

    Actually a bit sad to see it go...seemed like a nice hat tip after 5+ yrs of ownership. Just needed a minor reword for us.

    (White top is still there on the Roadster image).

    My photo has the correct body color hard-top, but it has 728 with black forged rims instead of silver. I like that look - one that @DeedWest has suggested I go with! I'll take that as another sign that is the way to go!

    @jareade - you cannot go wrong with that look. I'll take this as a sign, too. ;)

    On a similar note...my page shows my Electric Blue with silver Forged Wheels...might have to request an update.
