Gotta say, it was really really nice to have EAP do the driving for me to get home from the airport at 3AM yesterday.

Agreed.  Did a test drive of the L3P last week and its a rocket (30 to 80 in 2sec!). Tesla had 4 L3P with my configuration avail immediately from local SC. No waiting.

EAP behaves best on Highway drive, gets confused on city drives.

35k Model 3 will prob appear in 6 months according to EM.

Credit will be halved again by then.

That 3750$ credit is not the same as a Discount. You have to file your tax return and you must have a federal tax liability that meets or exceeds the incentive amount. Its not immediate.

Ask a tax professional about potentially filing for the  credit earlier. Another factor to consider is that in states with sales tax, you pay sales tax on the full amount prior to the tax credit.

Do they still plan on putting in full size battery and limiting it?
I'm not who you think I am.

Unlikely. Battery is  the most expensive component of the EV.
The Mid Range model has a long range battery with fewer cells.

custom sheitel for guys :)

Why is it that when she says the 4K custom sheitel feels amazing and natural, there’s no going back to anything else, and the women who say their $750 sheitel out of the box looks great will never understand, everyone comes out swinging?

(white) male privilege.....

I took delivery of a Model 3 on Dec. 26th. I had to get a second 30 day tag over-nighted to me last week. When I called the local service center, they said the state DMV was backlogged and they had no way of tracking the permanent one. I called again today to follow up on the permanent tag and was told I should be receiving it by end of the week because they sent the letter requesting it to DMV a day ago. I expressed disappointment over the fact that they didn't bother submitting it for over a month and was rebuffed with a lame excuse over how busy they were with December deliveries and a sob story over how many registrations they had to request. Not even an apology for the inconvenience (and apparent oversight). Mind you that where I live I would have saved a meaningful amount on toll roads with an electric vehicle decal (which is unavailable to 30-day tag holders).

Service of Spirit airlines will be the reason they don't take over the automotive world.

Nah, once they take over the world I think service will get better.

They are a 15 year old company that only started turning a profit last quarter. They are way over their head with demand for thier superior product. Once the sales become a steady number everything should even out.

What do you want them to do? Hire temporary employees for just the next year? Train them in time for them to be fired?
I'm not who you think I am.

Lol, if only that were the only problem with their service.

I don't think I mentioned what the problem with thier service is. I inferred that their production will lower and even out and everything will be more efficient.

You seemed to imply that the reason their service is bad is because of the fact that they haven't turned a profit in 15 years and they still have production kinks to work out, that just simply isn't true.

Tesla did just that. They cut (fired) 7% of their workforce this past Fri.
