    I've been invited to order by Model 3 and it says 4 weeks for delivery. But since I placed my deposit I ended up leasing a Model X instead.

    I could order it and try to sell it?
    I could find someone and order it for them?
    I could just wait and use it when my lease expires?

    What do you guys think?

    Nice guy would find someone in need and help them use yours :) unless you need the $

    Unless your X lease is over soon I'd be hoping model 3 buying wouldn't be the epic event it is now! :)

    I'm torn between keeping the reservation because in 2 years they might still have a long wait.

    And you might also decide if a smaller car than the X works for you to get the AWD version and own instead of lease. So hard to say what will be available in options etc 2 years down the road. If you are thinking about it, with so many others in line behind you now I would defer and keep your place in line which you can now pull the trigger on at any time.

    Defer to keep your place in line. You can always cancel down the road....

    What's the worst think if you just defer it? They take away your birthday?

    It hurts nothing to just wait unless you really need that $1000.
