    Don't like the look w/out the caps on, reminds me of a cheap Eurobox which has been cornered hard.

    Happy to give up the *very* occasional opportunity to try for the 0.8s advantage for peace at home.

    My daughter mentioned some ideas to em about "dressing up" the aeros. I wasn't paying attention (I'm old ...) but I'll ask her when I see her and report back.

    "has been modified" usually means "we've submitted at ticket to Fremont". It takes between 3 and 21 days for the idol in Fremont to humour the wishes of its worshippers in Europe.

    In other words, be patient. My initation ritual into the RWD LR sect also took a few weeks.

    OK, I just got another followup email. My order has now been converted to:

    Model 3 Long Range All-Wheel Drive Performance £48,590.00
    (plus paint job, etc.)

    Surprised to see the "Long Range" terminology still in there. This is confusing.

    The AWDs (both the nerfed AWD and the unnerfed P-/P+) *are* actually also Long Range; that refers to the battery pack. That's a P-, whose full name is Long Range (battery) Dual Motor All-Wheel Drive (number of motors) Performance (peak power of rear engine for dual motor configs), at the official price.

    This naming scheme is fairly consistent; in Germany that car is called "Maximale Reichweite Allradantrieb mit Dualmotor Performance" and in France "Grande Autonomie Transmission Intégrale Bimoteur Performance."

    "long range" in that context is the battery size

    First confirmed Model 3 deliveries. Several people have had texts inviting them to collect their cars from Heathrow next Thursday.

    Maybe try quoting the whole post, that way you won't look so stupid as your points are already anticipated and addressed.

    That's the same spec as me. When did you first reserve and when did you order?
    My reservation: 3/4/16
    My order: 7/5/19

    Reservation 31/3/16
    Order 1/5

    Get the impression this only makes a difference if they have 1 car left on the boat, 2 orders, and capacity at the SC to do the prep and handover.

    And you ordered all the profitable software-only options, like FSD, that the other guy didn't ...

    Thanks for sharing. Yeah, this not knowing is kind of a pain and pretty irritating but kind of exciting at the same time. Although, I still don't understand why they can't just give us a delivery date - even if it fluctuated by a couple of weeks.

    I'm not sure that would make any difference. I ordered FSD (although I am considering dropping it as soon as I get a delivery date).
