Quick question on the battery. I have heard and read that when charging your Tesla, it is best to charge to about 80% (or anything other than 100%) to preserve your battery. My question is, what if you were to get the base battery for the Model 3 (say 40kWh) which gets you the "at least" 215 miles, but this battery can be upgraded (or unlocked) to 55kWh at a price of course...could you charge the 40kWh battery to 100% since it is actually a 55kWh battery? It would be cool if you could.
