Looks like I’ll need to update my MNL signature, the Model 3 has indeed arrived in Chicagoland (rare glimpse charging at a local Tesla service center earlier today) ... earlier in the month, a black one was also spotted downtown. Simply gorgeous car in Pearl White Multi-coat.

Last point to those who have the IL EL electric vehicle plate series -- these will typically run for 2-years at a renewal cost of $35; I just received my plate renewal in the mail from IL SOS and it was $48; no mention of an increase posted on their web site ... anyone else see something similar ? It's only $13 more but no explanation; still a decent discount over the regular $101/yr.

I received mine for $48 as well. I went to my local SOS office and inquired, and they told me it was an error on their end - $48 was the price for vanity EL plates (didn't know that was even an option?). They said they would take my $35 now and have Springfield send me my sticker, or just come back in a few weeks and it should be sorted out. I opted to come back; we shall see.

Cool - it doesn’t expire for 1+ month so good to know, could be we might see the correction if we renew online in a few weeks - thanks for doing the leg work for all of us

Looks like I’ll need to go to IL SOS office, they sent me a reminder via email yesterday and it still added the extra $13, as I typically have a day off during the week and we have one close by not an issue - it’s only $13 but if not corrected I’m sure the next one would have it again!

Another Model 3 spotted in the Midwest -- VIN was a tad under 1000 so Tesla is indeed ramping up but slowly -- beautiful in red don't you think?
