It's not that hard to understand that when people say M3 in the context of a Tesla question or thread, they are not claiming any equivalency to a BMW M3. In Tesla discussions, people will also say MY or MS , it's clearly understood what they are referring to, it's just convenient shorthand.

If that’s the case. Why not call it M3LR (OP purchased), M3SR+ and M3P. Doesn’t need to be just M3 which could be confusing. Maybe it’s a Mazda 3…

There isn't a SR+ anymore, it's just a Model 3 now.

Anyway, I just don't see a problem that people are typing M3 when it's easy to figure out that they are not referring to that BMW. Personally I like to use TM3 because that is unambiguous.

If you want to remain an RFD member, you only have two options. A Tesla Model 3/Y, or a Toyota Corolla. Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes
Pick your poison.
