Picking Up My New Standard Range Plus Model 3! How is it so cheap?

  • Published on Sep 16, 2019
  • Well since my Performance Model 3 will getting some special stuff done to it in the next several months, I need a new car. So, to no-ones surprise, I bought another Model 3. However this time I went with the base model SR+. I bought the cheapest model available but did decide to upgrade to the white interior for an extra $1,000. Lets dive into what the SR+ is missing that the Long range and performance cars have!

    So the standard range is a huge let down

    Here in Italy I bought my m3 sr+ at 54K dollars (50K euro), but was best spending money, great value and satisfied.

    Erik, what is the best way to change Lanes in your SR+ without auto lane change? Turn off AP and then turn or just grab the wheel and turn while AP is active?

    Since you only plan to keep this car for ... even just a very few months, why not buy (even rent) a used Tesla? Don't you think you're going to lose a lot of money when selling it?

    Buying a new car for 2 to 3 months of use is fucking idiotic. I kind of hate these bougie RU-cliprs that go through more Teslas than most people go through phones.

    Would it be possible for you to give me a Tesla for free? I'm a broke first year college student who needs to visit his family but doesn't have a car because I can't afford one. Maybe a Tesla Model 3 long range, or a new long range Model Y since my family lives so far away

      White interior is far superior than black interior. White is space grade stain resistant and black is morbid, bland and boring

      SR+'s are as low as $37,100 on Tesla CPO so that makes the base SR no consideration anymore

    Another white car seriously? How do you not get tired of the ugliest color the white looks super round because the white makes all the lines and edges more opaque. Sorry but it’s time to unsubscribe because white premium cars trigger me white work cars is great to include you content is rarely interesting

    Glad you're playing with a standard range plus. We bought a standard range three months ago (software disabled range has not occured yet) and will be curious how it drives in wintery CO as I drive mine from Los Alamos, NM to ABQ, NM weekly. Our screen still says standard range plus and other than never having the enhanced sound package, or the ability to turn off the fog lights (they go on or off with the headlights) and no autopilot, we saved about $5k from your price.

    How much sales taxes do you pay in Colorado?
    If you trade in this car to Tesla, will you pay the sales taxes only for the difference of price or
    will you play the sales taxes for the full value of the new car?

    Can you figure out a way to make the center glass operable, like a moonroof! That is the one thing I really am going to miss (ordered my Model 3 today)! :)

    • Tom Crisp
      Tom Crisp 29 days ago +1

      I admit that when I scout pre-owned Model S on the Tesla site, I like to tick the "sunroof" box in the roof options. I'm guessing it wasn't the most popular option, though I think it should be standard. Some of us just like that open roof.

    But if you had added FSD now possibly the car would be worth more after the first of the year. The way Elon is talking about what’s going to be coming for cars with FSD and the value of them is going to be greater if they do. .

    I've been stuck on the same software version (2019.15.107). Let me know if you get an update. I've been on the phone/chat with Tesla and haven't been successful yet in getting a newer version.

    • Cisco8484

      @Paul Sanchez-Rivet I finally got updated yesterday to 2019.32.2.2 da05838. I've contacted three different support reps. One pushed an update but the install failed. One said he would push and never did. The third was downright rude and wouldn't help. But I got it randomly yesterday so I'm up-to-date (on V9 at least). A lot of the frustration would go away if they would let the customer decide when to upgrade. It's also strange that they would deliver a brand new car with software from 6 months ago.
