Thanks everyone, I'll order the premium AWD, even it's about 8k more than select in BC(including 3k rebate), still make sense for all the extra features, B&O, glass rooftop, 19" wheels, power passenger seats, ambient light etc.
Still can't figure out the whole "sound bar" thing. It has two speakers in it! Mine and home has eight.

The website doesn't say sound bar I don't think. I think its speculation based on the look of one continous piece on the dash.

That's not the whole car, and only a minor part of the surround system. There are 10 speakers in total.

Pretty sure that the "sound bar" has two tweeters and one mid-range.

Actually I think the mid-range speaker is up on the dash behind the tablet screen. It looks like only the tweeters are in the corners of the sound bar. Maybe the mid-range is piped into the sound bar, but the speaker seems to be located aft of the sound bar.

My personal must have features are heated seats, heated steering wheel and wireless apple carplay/android auto. Model y only has only 1/3 of those(heated seats) so it's a easy decision for me. I live in a cold climate so others may not value my preferences as much.

Some other luxury touches the Mach E has that the Y doesn't are perforated seats and IRR windshield and glass roof. This will help keep the vehicle cooler in summer and not have to rely on AC as much. There's also acoustic laminate glass for better sound insulation in the cabin and some other cool touches like interior ambient lighting. Long term the CSS charing network will dwarf teslas supercharger network. In the US it's already quite big and growing at a much faster pace than teslas network.

You’re right, my mistake, not thinking quite straight yet. I’m not back to 100% after the surgery.
In reality I'm sure 90% of people would pay no notice to the difference between forward and aft!

Hope you have a speedy recovery.

Great points! Wish they add heat pump in the final product!

I don't think I could ever get used to Tesla 100% touch screen controls.
Even opening the glove box requires a drop down menu.
No display behind the steering wheel
Model Y will be very common and superchargers jammed at holidays.
Tesla autonomous driving is vapor ware that won't be perfected anytime soon and Ford is also working on.
