2012 software issues that were never resolved:
1) Faulty 12 volt battery algorithm that has left me with a dead battery several times after being on vacation for a week, even with the solar panel exposed to the sun all week.
2) Grabby brake issue that was only 50% resolved by the TSB.
3) Worthless Guessometer.
4) I still have to tap on the screen EVERY time I start the car to acknowledge Carwings, even though it doesn't work anymore, and even though newer models only have to acknowledge once a month or so. No OTA updates to fix that.
I'm sure that there are more, but I can't think of any at the moment. BTW, anyone who quotes Seeking Alpha should just be ignored, IMO. I suspect there are HUNDREDS, if not THOUSANDS, of people who have received their Model 3 with no issues, but that wouldn't make the news.

Let's summarize, PM motors are blowing up, everyone's 12V is dying, all cars are riddled with bugs, and Tesla never considered profit margins in their cars on the base models. The sky has fallen multiple times and in the meantime Nissan is rolling out high-range bug free cars in mass quantity. If you drive a Tesla within 50 feet of Lorenfb the car will self destruct. So be careful....

So where is your M3 in the queue? Are you one of the those that might get delivery of one by early 2019 (maybe) or did you opt for paying
$50K+, then maybe by late 2018? Since you're a Tesla owner, you should be "in the front", right? You would be candid about any issues
once your M3 arrives and post here, right? But most likely not, as just another Tesla fanboy!

anyone who quotes Seeking Alpha should just be ignored, IMO


Care to refute what was presented in the quoted post, or too incapable to develop a rational argument? Like most who post in this thread,

Can't really say anything about an automotive company that "gave away" $20K of shareholder wealth with each vehicle delivered in 2017, right?
Or how about an automotive company that took about $.4B in deposits from potential customers and after three years (2019) those customers
might see a M3 delivery. That has to be a first in any industry. Speaks well for that company's CEO and his hyperbole, right?

Why don’t you back up your statements with facts. Also, you realize we live in a free market economy and deposit holders have a choice and can get a refund? They have no promise by or contract with Tesla and many companies never deliver on products they promise ever. I think you have a deposit and are just bitter you won’t get what you want when you want it and at the price you hoped. If I’m wrong do as you say and stop being a hypocrite and avoiding the question. As started many times before, my reservation was open to order In about Jan. I may just pass all together as I think the 3 is too much of a step down in many ways from the S. So please let everyone know if you have or had a deposit or put a sock in it and move on to another thread. You won’t convince anyone of anything or shape any opinions if you keep acting like an astroturfer for Nissan. Getting really tiresome and frankly pathetic actually....

Let me say what I don’t like about the 3 vs the s

Lots of tire and road noise, some being improved in newer releases

Plain seats that were intentionally dumbed down as they were originally nicer than the S

Cheaper than acceptable interior feel on the dash and seats

Cheap looking headliner material for a car of this price

The rest is just class of vehicle choices like size, storage, etc.

However, I can confirm the prototype AWD car feels better, handle much better and have more regen and are faster 0-60. What makes it to production is another matter.

Noise dampening and trim fixes are already being adjusted. Paint quality is better than the older S and new interior options are on the way.

Now there's an interesting phrase :lol:
I noticed you're still working with polymers.
