Well, I still haven't decided if I'll be happy with the Model 3 after coming from a Model S.
I like all the features on a Model S. I like having the center gauge just because I like having that information visible at all times.
I'm not sure about the lack of a key fob and being forced to use my phone or the key car.
Not sure how actual every day use of having to do everything on the center screen will be. I'm one that prefers getting to what I need in as few of taps as possible. With the Model 3, everything is on the same screen, so that means switching back and forth to get to the things you need.
I love that it's a smaller car than the Model S, works better for my needs.
Car certainly looks better in person than in photos. Still not crazy about the very plain interior, but it is what it is and I'll get used to it (I'll have to).
The beauty of Tesla, despite my being one that LOVES CHOICES and unsure how happy I'll be with the Model 3, I still am forking over nearly $60,000 to buy the car anyway.
I like my luxury features and am a tech geek, so I know I'll miss those things. But, Tesla has two things that make any other choice impossible......
1. Auto Pilot (must have for me)
2. Charging infrastructure (being that I can't drive a gas car again after being spoiled with the Model S, an EV is my only option and at this time, Tesla is the ONLY manufacturer with the ability to travel and charge, hence there is no other choice if you want an EV).
Those two things alone outweigh things that the car is lacking. Lacking, meaning things that I would personally prefer my car have, but Tesla doesn't).
I've loved my Model S and despite giving up on some of the luxury I'm used to, I don't feel like it's been a sacrifice and have no disappointments in driving the Model S. Am giving up even more with the Model 3, but am keeping my Model S, so if I don't like the Model 3, I can always sell it.
I was still on the fence, but Tesla made my decision for me by sending me an e-mail that my car was ready to configure. Took me all of 5 minutes to configure the car and place the deposit. I guess after I get it, I'll decide if I'm happy with it. I'm the perfect Tesla customer!!! LOL. (Willing to buy sight unseen, willing to pay up front and willing to take a chance).
I think I'll be satisfied, if not, then the car will go up for sale, simple as that.
