After much deliberation I pulled the trigger yesterday on a new P100D. Then, after reading about the V3 supercharger I was even more thrilled. But then, I discovered that the MS and M3 use different batteries and in some cases, the M3 battery charges twice as fast. The Tesla blog states that MS/X batteries will received a software update in the next few months to enable faster charging.
Considering the advances with the M3 and relative age of the MS battery, should I be concerned about the MS battery compared to the M3? I also read that Elon likes updates in month 1 of each quarter, is a MS refresh possible next month?
I'm fine with evolving technology and know the risks, but I am concerned that a $35k M3 will charge twice as fast my $100K MS.
Any guidance or thoughts are appreciated.
