Well, looks like insurance wasn't that big of a hit, $19/month extra! ]

Sold our Honda Accord and actually made money!
Picking up my Tesla Model 3 tomorrow!! Can't wait.

Holy cow, that is nice!

Great color choice too!

It will be great to hear about real experiences with one...they are very, very rare here.

Congratulations!

Thanks! This car is SOOO fun to drive. And being all electric, there's absolute NO hesitation when you step on the accelerator (got to remember it's not a GAS peda laugh )

Black is their stock color, it doesn't cost more. I like it myself. The regenerative braking is really cool.

And tonight I made my 90 year old dad smile and he had a good time when I left a rice burner honda in the dust laugh

Week and a half and this thing makes me smile every time I see it. A side benefit is that I'm more green than a lot of "green" people. No more fumes coming out of the tailpipe....oh wait, no tailpipe!

Once the truck is paid off, we'll trade that sucker in for either a Tesla truck (debuting this fall) or another model 3.

I even bought stock in Tesla the other day.

Apple has bored me, even with this new Mac Pro, I'm like..yeah, that's not for me. Tesla has excited me!

When you have some time, watch this. It'll blow you away!

Well, 2 months in and still loving it! Even Amy says that we made a great decision. I started the Tesla owners club of Kentucky. This is the car of the future.



We upgraded our car from the Standard Range to the Standard Range Plus, which means more range and autopilot...Talk about cool!

Cool. You should ride in one....you will like it even more. Though you are pretty tall, the model 3 might be ok, not sure.

If you ever want to ride in one, let me know and I will come up that way. :-)

This is growing on me as well. The midrange one, with all-wheel drive, seems to be a decent deal.

It will be interesting to see how the final version will look...mirrors, lightings (3rd brake light), and other street-legal things called for right now. I do not think the tires sticking out are legal either...but look neat. I have a 4x4 Chevy truck right now....

I looked that the home charger. Do you have the 60-amp one? Was it costly? I already have a300amp service maxed out so I would have to upgrade to 400amp.
