    This might be a bit of a stretch but thought I'd try anyways :) Making a Model S purchase and need to use a referral code and don't know how to decide which code on here to use. Figured that since I also want to eventually purchase a set of Arachnids or Turbines I'd offer to use someones referral code and help them reach their goal of 5 referrals. And in return they'll sell me the Arachnids (if they don't really want them) or their Turbines at a discount.

    Thanks!

    If I can get 5 referrals I would sell you the Archnids or Turnbies for $2000. Referral | Tesla

    You need 10 not 5 referrals I believe for this promotion...

    From the Tesla website:

    "Good Faith
    We introduce programs such as these in good faith and expect the same good faith in return. Please note that we may withhold awards where we believe customers are acting in bad faith or otherwise acting contrary to the intent of this program. To be clear, commercializing or otherwise selling referral codes is not appropriate, and we will not honor such codes. We cannot cover every nefarious scenario, nor will we attempt to, but we do promise to be fair and reasonable."

    I believe asking for a discount or favor goes against the intentions of the referral program. It's not a horrible idea and seems reasonable, but you can imagine how this could propel out of hand when people start "buying" referral codes.

    ...my opinion only.
