Pioneers get slaughtered so settlers can get rich. Someone please tell me any vehicle that has the kind of pre release wait list as the M3? This is an exceptional product even if it is garbage. The exception is that there is such interest over such an unknown. Really, I would tell the naysayers to drop their deposit. Hold onto your current vehicle. Wait for the market demand to be met and all your questions answered. Get your test drive when the dealerships have inventory. Wait for Consumer Reports, Motor Trend, etc to review, then if you want; purchase the vehicle. I don't understand the translation of making a voluntary/refundable reservation into an entitlement to know all things Tesla. There were 270 car models available in the US in 2008 (statista.com). There are plenty of choices. Like all I welcome, invite, and crave all the data I can get on the M3, thus my presence here. But I have no illusion that I am owed any. Even as a share holder I only expect what is given at the quarterly report as required by the SEC. Not even Maye has sway over privilege with Tesla. Why should we?
