    Early Tesla Model 3 reservation holders will have ‘something special’ to make their car stand out

    [​IMG]

    When Tesla started taking orders for the Model 3 on March 31st, CEO Elon Musk confirmed that unlike Tesla’s previous models, there will not be any ‘Signature reservation’ option for the Model 3. With the Model S and X, Tesla opened up 1,000 ‘Signature reservation’ spots per market for a $40,000 deposit (versus $5,000 for a regular reservation).

    A ‘Signature reservation’ assured that you would get the vehicle sooner than anyone in your market and you also had the option to choose a special color called ‘Signature red’ to make your car stand out. Tesla decided not to offer the same option for the Model 3 and anyone can reserve the car with a $1,000 deposit, but now Musk says that early reservation holders will still have “something special” to make their car stand out. more…

    Whoppee! Nice to see that jumping in feet first paid off. I have many thoughts about what it might be. I think something software related may be more likely perhaps unlocking supercharging. Would love the glass roof myself if it is something physical.

        That's great same blue as what is offered on the Model S/X. Hardly exclusive.

        Paint is the easiest thing to offer as exclusive but maybe we'll get a "LineHolders Series™" badge :)

        Won't necessarily be the same blue... I mentioned that the blue is a hint of what the "Signature" color could be...

        I have a reservation from April 1, quite early. Is this considered "early reservationist" regarding special options?
        Last week my father ordered a Model X, as an owner he will be prioritised if ordering M3. Now I wonder if I can get the car earlier if he reserves one for me, in his name, then I'll buy it from him. Probably have to wait until end 2018 here in Sweden

        You should purchase the Model X, have your April 1 reservation get "bumped up" due to Tesla ownership, then sell the X to your father after you get your Model 3.

          I am hoping for something along the lines of a signature badge as @MelindaV suggests. The problem with signature colors is that some people might not like that particular shade even if it happens to be exclusive.

            totally agree with @Jayc - I know some were disappointed there were not going to be 'Signature' versions of the Model ☰ in Signature Red, but that particular paint color would be about the last one I would choose compared to the other current colors. :confused:

              I would really take to a premium paint job in a less bland color than the standard lineup. Maybe a different, lighter shade of blue like a Royal Blue? Lightweight Arachnid rims would do as well. How about a minimal performance increase Easter Egg?

              I'm curious what some peoples guesses or hopes might be...

              Wouldn't mind if that something special is:
              • free autopilot
              • free supercharging for life
              • triple bar ☰ badging (instead of "3")
              • scale model Model 3
              • Elon & JB bobble head dolls
              • Gigafactory roller coaster ride
              • any Elon Musk invitation
              • first dibs on future products

                pretty good chance there is only one on your list that is viable

                • free autopilot no
                • free supercharging for life no, unless you meant the 400kWh/year
                • triple bar ☰ badging (instead of "3") will not come directly from Tesla - companies lose trademarks by deviating from their registered marks
                • scale model Model 3 maybe
                • Elon & JB bobble head dolls Don't think either of them are vain enough for this, but has anyone been to the Whitehouse giftshop lately? I bet you can find a national figure in bobble head form there
                • Gigafactory roller coaster ride maybe if you are an employee
                • any Elon Musk invitation I think once the bazillions of Model 3s are out, the days of event invitations will be gone
                • first dibs on future products see above answer
                ETA - fixed

                  @MelindaV no harm in dreaming! ;)

                  Regarding the 1st bullet point above, Is there a correlation between autopilot and kWh consumption, which is why Tesla may not offer AP for free? I think that would be the best gift since you could earn extra income.

                    ha - and I just realized I read your first bullet as free supercharging - no idea how I thought that and the second were the same but different. but still not likely ;)

                      Even if that were offered as a pricey option, I would consider buying it. But it's not even offered as an option to purchase on the S or X.
