    Living in the Netherlands, I have waiting (reservation) since beginning 2018. Maybe, with some luck, I will become a Tesla owner some day. I am closely following this forum, watching for any hints about reappearance of the M3 LR RWD.
    AWD is for the polluters amongst us. In a flat country like the Netherlands and lots of traffic AWD makes no sense. So lets hope Elon is in the game for the environment first and not for the money.
    I have joined the forum to make others aware of my disappointment about the rumours M3 LR RWD will not appear. Maybe it helps. If not, then I dump my reservation and wait for something else to appear. Anyone else waiting for this type?

    In the mean time a keep servicing my gasburners (LPG).

    Greetings Simon Youngtree

    Think of AWD as the sports model then. Unlike a traditional ICE AWD vehicle, the Tesla AWD has redundant motors and is faster than RWD.

    I’ve read some forum members’ take that AWD is better in snow and mud.

    AWD is useful in the wet weather we have here, also.
    We’ll get the rwd medium range in a couple of months. Perhaps that’s an option for you?
