    I received another delivery delay on the model 3. I started looking at used Model X’s and found a great deal on a 2016 75D with a build date of 12/30/2016. Has all the 2017 hardware and was only a little more expensive than the 3 would be since I bought private party with no sales tax (in my state). Car has every option with the exception of larger wheels and cold weather package.

    I’m still debating on what to do with my Model 3 reservation. I may change it to the base version.

    I haven’t had a chance to drive a Model 3, but I can tell you the model X is impressive.

    Congrats! For some of us, the Model 3 timing just didn't work for our needs. I still have my reservation but yes, the X is quite the car

    Thank you. Congrats on yours too. I’m a Day one reservation holder on the 3, but like you I’m in a snowy part of the world. The all wheel drive and many more functions made the X impossible to pass on.

    I wouldn't mind a model x over the model 3. I'm contemplating cancelling my reservation and waiting a bit longer for a model x.

    Unfortunately, the X depreciared quite a bit. I paid less than 2/3’s what the original owner paid one year ago. If you don’t need to have a new car then a used X may be doable.

    75D’s range didn’t make it a practical choice for me but glad it works for you. I was so tempted to pull the trigger on a CPO instead of the 3 but the 3’s next gen tech swayed me over.

    Congrats! The X is a great car. Make sure you ask the service center if your car has been uncorked yet. The difference is VERY noticeable....and free

    It would definitely have to be a used model x. I can't yet afford a new one.
    It would also need to be a 90D or above.

    Agree... yet they are even more rare here in Europe than the S... for a bit large for lots of our city driving and grocery stores parking lots... :(
