Was reading somewhere about strategies for getting your model 3 earlier.... one suggestion was to buy a Model S first. Then I read that Model S and X sales are up after the 3 release,
So I write this as an open letter to Elon (don't have Twitter).
Hopefully, I haven't misunderstood the policy.
I have been a long time supporter of electric vehicles (20 years) and have been patiently waiting for a Model 3 (which I promised to my wife as her reward for putting up with me for 30 years) for OVER A YEAR NOW since I put down my reservation on 4/1. So while I understand that you want to give order preference to those that are already Tesla owners, I hope that you will do the RIGHT and FAIR thing, and not allow people to essentially cut in line on those us who have been waiting in the reservation queue for quite awhile, simply because they have the money to buy a Model S long after fact.
Give preference to current owners who actually got in line last year, but don't let johnny-come-latelies game the system.
