    I wanted:
    Mid-Range RW Model 3
    Obsidian Black
    Black Interior

    Which is not available and possibly will never be, so my next option:
    LR RW Model 3
    Standard Black or Blue.

    I have my doubts if we will ever see the LR RW either.

    I essentially want whatever is the cheapest option that still comes with the premium interior, price depending.

    I can't afford anything that falls into the luxury car tax bracket so I may end up with a fully optioned SR+ (no tow bar).

    i think for a lot of people it is also about avoiding LCT - just out of principle.

    Preference will be white on white long range dual motor. Might also put on self driving at purchase if it’s not being effected by LCT... doubt it though.

    SR+, Multi-coat Red, upgrade wheels, black interior, no FSD, no tow bar. But could be tempted to LR AWD if prices are really good and would have preferred LR RWD.

    So if LCT on your desired configuration was $10, you would not buy that configuration? Really?

    Of course not, but... if the car was already in LCT territory, I wouldn’t spec self driving because the cost to do so would be 33% more. Just looking at the UK spec, they have a tick for a tow bar, I’ll add that, LCT or not..

    I will be:

    • LR RWD (probably not an option, in which case I will clench my teeth and take AWD)
    • White interior
    • Tow/accessory hitch
    • Standard wheels
    • No FSD
    Haven’t decided colour, MSM, blue or white.

    If FSD after purchase is AUD$11400 and $8500 if included in the purchase, then if the car is already in the LCT bracket (above $75526) then by my calcs, adding at purchase would put the FSD at $11605 including LCT), so only $205 extra to include FSD at purchase time. Assuming that it is included in the LCT taxable amount, which seems to hold up when looking at the Model S financing numbers on the AU website.
    Perhaps a model S or X owner can confirm that.

    I guess by buying FSD off the bat on a novated lease (salary packaging) an additional 20% premium per annum in FBT, wonder if FSD could be considered a running cost?

    Performance cannot have aero wheels, the brakes are too big and the 18" wheels don't clear them, you get the 20" performance wheels by default.
