Meh. I WROTE an email program in 1978 :) Nearly 40 years in IT. But I also have some background in human factors, perception and physiology. Software is a great tool but not in a vacuum. "It'll all be fixed in the next release" -- not sure I can count how many long nights I spent when that didn't pan out. ;)

Perhaps what the model 3 needs is the Echo Silver. :lol:

I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Configured my Model 3 last night:)
Sounds like most owners who place their order the first day in the U.S. now have the ability to configure their order.

Since cars are typically poor investments and EVs being the worst example of that I would agree.

Try $60k-$65k. If you were buying a $45k-$55k Model 3, you most certainly would not have it yet.

They will be so yes you will be able to get one that way. Presently I can order one right now for $49 with all fees pre-tax, I just configured one to see the minimum. Adding everything is $59K pre tax and that include full autonomous, not sure who is ordering that now.

I'm not debating this. But you had asked if lorenfb had his Model 3 yet. They aren't yet available at these prices.

Peeps cray if they are actually paying for FSD.

I am holding out for the SR and I plan on skipping EAP for now (sadly). That has me at $42k for premium, midnight silver, wheels, then take another $6k off in various tax credits depending on when it's ready. Course the extended range right now still qualifies for full federal tax credit.

Right now a person can be into a premium extended range for about $40k, depending on any state credits offered.

OT :lol: Thanks for that! I stopped watching SNL regularly about the time the first gen of NRFPP moved on, so missed the Eddie Murphy era and everything since. Glad to see they can still do fake commercials well - I think the first SNL bit I ever saw while idly flipping channels as a teen was the "Spud Beer" commercial (http://snltranscripts.jt.org/75/75fspud.phtml), and I had no idea what the hell I was watching for a bit. And then there's what may well be the all-time winner, Dan Ackroyd and the "Bass-O-Matic" (http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/bassomatic/n8631?snl=1).

Back OT, +1 for all the HF, perception, physiology issues involved in touchscreen and/or voice commands, although much of my knowledge was gained second hand via a former girlfriend.

I agree totally, but I'm trying to be less negative lately about Tesla.
