As a configured but no VIN almost owner, it’s great to hear good things on the actual range!  More are being delivered in the Portland area:  saw a blue one go by the Forth storefront tonight about 7:30pm.  The future is getting brighter and brighter!

The list of accessories for the 3 does not include the adapter.  On the list of accessories for S and X the adapter specifically says it’s for S and X only.

I can attest that the 310 mile range is real.  I’ve put 240 miles on a full charge and I have 80 miles left.  Unlike a Leaf though, zero on a Tesla is really zero.  If you do that you’ve damaged the battery and voided your warrantee.  So, useful range for me is about 250-270 miles.  I want to stay in a range that doesn’t stress the battery.
