    S is a better car overall now that we've seen model 3 mostly even with no options.
    S will always be more advanced than the 3
    S will have more range than the 3 no matter what. Update battery packs in the future.
    Honestly not overly impressed with model 3 at this time-it looks stripped.
    Need as much range as possible-340 is nice. With AC I can go about 300.
    No need to wait anymore is a nice plus. I can afford it too.
    S has a center screen that I like
    I can put in my navigation computer in the dash-custom built-did it on my s p90d.
    No longer need a p version of the car-I think I've used performance like 10x just to see what
    it was like-then never used it again-really.
    This is just my take on why I changed my mind.
    Ordered it this morning. Delivery estimated mid May.

        That accelerated quickly! You haven't even seen the car yet. Sorry.... You have seen a blurry 9 second video. Wow.

          Choice most of us don't get to make. Model 3 will be by far the most expensive car I have ever purchased. I will test drive any 200 mile plus EV available beforw I configure but I can't see anything on the horizon that will beat it.

                OP, How are you handling the fact that you're now only getting 1 car vs the 2 you planned on? The S is bigger/faster etc but it's only 1 vs your 2 reserved 3s.

                  Congrats on the new model S 100d...

                  It's a large car compared to the model 3 so I don't really see them as competitorS...especially on price.

                  Good luck and good choice.

                  The thing that puzzles me, @Tesla007 , is how you'd plan on a 3 'next year' for your niece, after you just 'ditched' the two reservations you had, thereby putting yourself at the back of the line, presumable >500k now...? Unless you mean you'd 'order' it next year with delivery time TBD, possibly after the graduation...?
                  Could be I'm missing something, or you have a secret plan? ;)

                    I will order the 3 after she graduates (waiting is better at this point with a model 3 loaded)-or she might get my p90d. Haven't decided yet. might depend on where she decides to live. Will see the 100d early May.

                    model 3 doesn't go far enough for me. the p90d just barely gets me to work on one charge.

                      I don't have children, unfortunately, And I have a niece too that has spend a lot of time in my home.
                      She will probably be very lucky too, but by the time she is old enough to drive, there will be a Model 10 with 1000Miles range.
                      She is 5 y.o. now...
                      :)

                        Ah, so that's why you cancelled your Model 3 reservations. In that case it makes quite a lot of sense. The S 100D will treat you fine, then!

                        Maybe because of this and this I don't believe anything you say.

                          Personally I want something on the smaller side. I'll be driving this around LA which is the worst of both worlds; urban landscape of parking hell and freeways galore. The MS is a larger car than I want. So unless they cost almost the same I'd pick the M3. I personally like how simplified it is.
