I placed an order for my first tesla and had a quick question on the deposit, hopefully you guys can shed some light on it.
When I placed my order on the car, I put a 5k for the deposit. I misplaced the breakdown I got from the rep when I made the order, so I just wanted to ask you guys if the deposit was already computed in when I did the calculations on the design studio or not. From what I understand is that it's only refundable if you decide to cancel, but I wasn't sure if it was counted as a downpayment (along with the tax credits). The configuration I made showed 1421$/month on the design studio. I was wondering if the monthly will go down because of the deposit ( Not including the sales/registration tax as well as financing rates).
I'm a little new to this and honestly it's the first car I decided to buy since I moved here. So sorry in advance for the stupid question.
Thank you in advance!
