Now that pricing is out which battery are you getting? Look at above post and add a number to it if it exist or put a 1.
300 - 1
300 - 1 230 - 0 160 - 1
Unless I get a bit more scrounged together, and I move to the 230. biggest reason I consider this is the performance (0-60) impact, though realistically that isn't too important. I plan to upgrade the battery down the line maybe 8-10 years.
300 - 1 230 - 0 160 - 2
Though I too might stretch for the 230 battery if there are differences between the 160 and 230 models other than just battery size and access to superchargers.

230 due to better warranty, will get 300 if TSLA stock goes up to $44 by June.

300 pretty much no matter what. A form of EV range anxiety, I think.

230 meets my needs. Faster than my MINI Cooper S JCW, easily meets my daily commute range of 40 miles. Meets my long range trip needs for a once a month trip of 145 miles. Based on proven battery technology. TESLA has not released any details, but I beleive the 85kWh pack is a brand new technology. Most of the model S is great use of existing technology and is not based on anything bleeding edge except for that new battery....

@lgagliardi The other forum is much better for these kind of polls (direct support). FYI
Very true. TeslaMotorsClub.com
300 for me:
Would help if I actually updated the tally:

If it were simply about the battery, I'd be happy with the 230, since that will get me anywhere I need to go in the SF Bay area, but since I'm leaning toward the performance package (today), I'm going to have to go with the 300.

I'm Sig 729 but even if I downgrade to P I'll go with the 300.
Torn between 160 and 230 packs.
Stretch for the 230. You won't regret it. It'll help significantly with resale value.
Either 230 or 300, I have a bit of time to decide yet.

Here's an older version of the same thread, with some pro and con arguments, if you're interested: http://www.teslamotors.com/forum/forums/which-battery-300-230-or-160

Volker: true but we did not have actual prices only rumors.
For me 300, as stated previously the larger the capacity, the easier to keep the battery charge in optimal range thus significantly affecting longevity.

Going for the middle size. I drive a total of 10 miles per day but want the feeling of the middle. Kinda of like a 5 series, in the middle. I know the car size is the same but for some reason that is how the mind works for me. Andrew18 gave a heads up on the 4k Illinois tax credit which might have just added a couple options to my list.

Covered pretty well here:
I'm 300 for sure, though it is more than I need. I think a good choice in the long run.

I originally figured for the 160, but with the extra issues (supercharger, warranty) that have popped up with the pricing announcement, I'm trying to figure a way that I can come up with the funds to go with the 230. I'm torn about this - I'd talked with my wife about the 160, but now it looks like we'll have to talk about more. Oh well, my daughter didn't REALLY need to finish college anyway!!!

I decided on a 230 battery a while ago after drawing circles of varying diameters on a map and seeing how far each battery would get me (one way). I picked the smallest one which could get me from my home in Phila suburbs to some places I frequent: NYC, Jersey Shore, Baltimore, and Harrisburg.

At the moment, the count on the TMC poll is: 300 - 79 230 - 29 160 - 24 ??? - 21
