    After a few weeks of religiously refreshing the Tesla account page it finally changed this morning! My trade-in and financing boxes are now yellow instead of gray, edit button is gone, and finance box is asking for detailed options.

    I assume (and hope) to hear from an ISA today!

    Congrats!
    It appears as though a batch of white AWD and P-AWD were made recently.
    Can you provide details of when you reserved, and also when you ordered?
    Thanks!

    I got excited for a second, PUP normally stands for Premium Upgrade Package, which is still the only interior available. Not sure what people are using as shorthand for Performance Upgrade...

    Ah, yeah, makes sense. So no Performance Upgrade and Black Interior.

    Non-Performance upgrade to the performance upgrade.

    Performance upgrade to the performance upgrade includes 20" wheels and possible white seats.

    Yes...its a thing.

    PUP means Premium Upgrade Package. If we start re-using acronyms this is going to get real annoying real quick. Mods - maybe a thread rename is in order?

    Thanks for the update. My mistake.

    Vin assigned 73xxx, delivery set for July 26th. 8th digit of VIN is "B", despite this being a Dual Motor Performance model.

    I'd reach out to Tesla and verify that they have the right VIN and that they are making the right care for you. Unless maybe they changed their VIN codes from 2017? Who knows.

    Is there any significance to yellow instead of grey? I hadn't paid attention to the colors before (dunno if they were grey, yellow, purple, or something else), but looking now my uncompleted task boxes all have yellow circles with 3 dots inside them in on the right near the "expand" button .... but I still have the "Edit Design" button too. Confused ... :-/

    Seems like the Performance models for their stores have a B in that spot as well, based on the couple VINs I saw

    That is interesting since their 2017 letter to NHTSA said that a P model should have a 4 in that slot. I've so far not had any luck finding if they changed their decoder for 2018 except for a tweet that appears to show screen shots of the 2018 changes but I would prefer more confirmation like the original document PDF:

    Original 2017 letter in this article:
    Tesla updates VIN decoder for Model 3 production vehicles

    Tweet showing screenshots of 2018 letter - mentions that the model 3 doesn't have it's own P designator and that only the other Teslas do in the VIN:
