Got a text about 30 min ago on my Model 3 SR ordered 2/28. "Your Model 3 is tentatively scheduled to be delivered on 3/30 between 12 PM-2 PM...". Only 2 days late from the estimated delivery of 2-4 weeks. That's really good for Elon time.

I got the same text. 3/29 at 3:30pm, so almost exactly one day late from the 2-4 week estimate.

I was at the Rocklin store when I placed my order. What a fun day that was. Almost exactly 3 years ago.

A zero option car. It was 35,000 + 1200 for a grand total of $36,200 before rebates.

Ok, same here. I'm closer to the factory, but you get yours a day earlier. :)

Not sure I understood the last part of the text: "...Prior to delivery, please complete and submit your delivery profile at www.tesla.com/teslaaccount"

There does not seem to be anywhere on my account to do this. IIRC, I already did that at the time of my order. My delivery time and address show correctly on my account page.

The first report is out for a Model 3 LR charging at an updated V2 Supercharger:

145 kW up to 44% SoC
117 kW at 60% SoC

Insane improvement, now long trips will average over 2 kWh a minute when charging.
And when V3 Superchargers are available the car will add ~ 50 miles at a low SoC in 2 - 3 minutes.

Very useful amateur drag test of roof racks on TMC:
Model 3 Roof Rack Options - Comparing Efficiencies
https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... st-3404412
As winter arrived I was excited to strap a roof rack on my Model 3 and take it to the mountains. I quickly discovered little information out there about how it would impact the range. Given the long cold uphill drive and variable weather conditions, I was determined to find the highest efficiency setup and characterize it for route planning. I started with a stock TM3 LR AWD, keeping as many variables constant as possible, and did 20+ runs up and down the highway gathering data. I tested with both the SeaSucker Monkey Bars and Tesla's Roof Rack, with various configurations of snowboards, carriers, and fairings.
There is a bar graph as well as summaries.

That’s pretty cool. Model 3, White on White, LR, Upgrade rims, Autopilot. That’s our first choice for a replacement for Angela’s Smart EV convertible. If they come out with a Chademo adapter we’ll pull the trigger. If not we’ll order an Eplus Leaf SL with all the trimmings. We have some time so we’ll hang in there for a bit to see if Tesla makes the Chademo adapter for the model 3.

Interesting. Your vehicle choice is based solely on whether or not a specific adapter is available. I can understand if you’re in parts of Canada where CHAdeMO chargers far outnumber Superchargers, but elsewhere? To date, Tesla has made no announcement nor move toward supporting CHAdeMO so it would appear your decision is an easy one. Enjoy your new LEAF.

Tesla has the Model S/X CHAdeMO adapter listing currently for $602.

Would like to have one of these for the Model 3, but that's a hard price to swallow. Might be worth it for a commuter who would depend on it, but was looking to have one as back-up to fill in the gaps between superchargers on the occasional long trips for convenience and emergencies.
