Tesla Model S

I ordered a Tesla Model S this past Sunday. I've been thinking about it for several years and even put down a deposit for a Model 3. It's a pretty cool car, especially the Auto-Pilot feature but the car is pretty expensive. I configured a 75kWh RWD model and the price before tax rebates is $84,000. I've since went back online and dropped the self-driving feature and applied a discount code from a friend, but that's still $80k before destination charges and sales tax, not to mention huge increases in CA registration fees and auto insurance premiums.

I have until this Saturday to decide whether to keep the order or lose my $2500 deposit.
