    White interior was the primary catalyst. If we waited for RWD to get white we’d lose $3,750 in credit.

    No, they paid $5000 more to save $3750. And they'll get the car sooner.

    And given that delivery for orders placed right now are estimated for 2-4 months, there's still a chance for them to get the full $7500.

    Very nice. Good thing that garage wash is pretty quick.

    Any decisions yet or the charging? Share the UMC until the WC’s arrive?

    What @garsh said. We effectively spent $5,000 to get $3,750 (or rather not lose it). There is no telling and when RWD gets white interior (knowing Tesla probably 5 minutes after it’s too late for us to change). My wife is patient, but her current car’s warranty just ended and she’s sick of pumping gas so there is no time like the present.

    We’re going to share the UMC until I can get the 2 WC’s installed!

    but, FYI, to date, there have not been any AWD with 19" wheels and white interiors VINd yet.

    You sure you shouldn’t just hold onto that P3D+ you are testing and give your wife MB THE TESLA?;)

    Uh, a Model Y and a Tesla Pickup?? :D.

    The Model Y for easier doggy hauling, and the pickup for hauling all sorts of other crap (including ass, of course! :p)

    That's good to know. Hopefully we can get in on a the tail end of a batch and sneak away with a really fast delivery. That said timing doesn't matter at all, the goal is just to beat 12/31 obviously.

    My review is coming soon. The M3P, yes @garsh as much as you may hate to hear this the keycard was labeled "M3P", is a true monster. My wife wanted white on white so there was no play where I could get the beast and she takes my car.

    I think ultimately she doesn't want to pump gas until Model Y makes an appearance. Given what we're seeing the Model Y probably drops with no available tax credits and that money sure does sweeten the pot!

    I ordered a white awd with black interior, with aero wheels. Can’t wait to get it delivered. Ultimately I’m with you, as long as I get it before the end of the year I’m good, but I really want it NOW!

    Congratulations!
    Nothing like having one model 3 to motivate the spouse to want one.
    It took us about a month after getting the first to order the second one.

    @SoFlaModel3 lucky that your wife wants just the M3. Mine went to Tesla store without me and wants an X.

    But no order yet . Whew .

    She wanted @TrevP ’s Model X for sure but it wasn’t going to happen. I think she’ll be plenty happy with the Storm Trooper Model 3!
