Default Car ADD Part 2 - Electric Boogaloo

So I panicked and cancelled my last order due to trade in concerns and the Tesla Vision news. However after reading more and watching some videos as well as seeing improvement via software updates, I decided to put in an order again yesterday.

I did change up my configuration:

- Model 3 Performance
- Pearl White
- Premium White Interior

They gave me the actual trade offer today, which I then approved via my Tesla account. It was the same as before, which is $1000 more than I paid for my Supra brand new.

I also ordered the Tesla Wall Connector w/ 24ft cord which I will have installed in my garage. It was $500 but my Utility Company gives a $400 incentive and there are other tax credits available as well.

Now I am just waiting for my VIN assignment and delivery date so everything can be buttoned up and finalized.

How do you maintain a white interior?
Congrats on a good buy. Dual motor version? Assuming performance means that.

Only the seats and some trim pieces are white. Otherwise...very carefully? LOL

There are 3 models here:

RWD (single motor)
- Standard Range Plus (262 mile range, 0-60 in 5.3 sec, 140mph top speed)

AWD (dual motor)
- Long Range (353 mile range, 0-60 in 4.2 sec, 145mph top speed)
***Note: You can buy Acceleration Boost ($2000) for the Long Range which will take the 0-60 down to 3.7 seconds.

- Performance (315 mile range, 0-60 in 3.1 sec, 162mph top speed)

With the Performance you also get:
- 20’’ Überturbine Wheels
- Performance Brakes
- Carbon fiber spoiler
- Aluminum alloy pedals
- Lowered suspension

It also has "Track Mode" which is explained in this link:

https://www.tesla.com/support/track-mode

Anyway, I hope it comes sooner rather than later. But at least it gives me some time to prep (wall connector installation, ordering winter wheels/snow tires, etc.)
