I spoke with the online chat folks just now also. They were unable to match me with a red LR with tow hitch from current batch.

Said that the next batch was probably arriving around end Feb

That would explain why mine hasn’t been matched. Guess we’ll be getting the new number plates, then!

The MIC SR+ cars have up to now had the LFP battery - I'll not say whether that's a better or worse battery, but I would suggest you look into it. The LFP battery is heavier, but can charge it to 100% more freely but on the flip side some have reported its less happy in the cold with slower charge rates and worse cold weather performance.

Have been reading about that alright. I suppose that's what I'm asking in a round about way. Are people concerned about this battery setup? Seems to be untested and give trouble compared to the other tried and tested batteries.

Odd, if it matches my spec why hadn't Tesla matched me with it?

Tesla sales process is a mystery. If you read around early M3 ordering in the uk, people were ordering a second car from inventory and then ringing up Tesla to get the orders combined because it was quicker than waiting for Tesla to match them and early orders were taking longer to be delivered than inventory orders. It feels like unmatched inventory gets automatically listed and can be bought while there’s one person in a room centrally somewhere who is supposed to match up stock to orders but has a backlog and has inventory bought before they get to it. Ring a sales centre and they’ll just look at whether you have or haven’t been matched, Tesla don’t build to order, custom orders aren’t really custom, they’re just a request to match you up with a suitable car when one appears.

You could always get the reference to the inventory car and contact them as I wouldn’t personally recommend the second order route, or check with them that they’ll happily refund the second deposit

As George says, just contact Tesla and ask to be matched to the inventory car. I've seen that done by others on here more than once.

According to Tesla web chat, that inventory car doesn't have a heated steering wheel, but a new custom order model 3 will... So I'll stick to my custom order for now

I spoke to my local Tesla centre yesterday about my LR order I placed a few days ago and they confirmed it would have both the new door trims and a heated steering wheel.

Ordered M3LR in white mid December through lease company, given RN beginning of Jan. Tried online chat yesterday no matched VIN yet, so requested March pick up. When i asked if it would be MIC? Agent replied saying it would defiantly be made in the US.
