Well, I registered a while ago, but I never introduuced myself.

I am a french former Opel Ampera owner (first generation Chevrolet Volt), wich led me to feel confortable with an electric powertrain and to get a Model S afterwards.

I reserved a Model 3 on march, 31st 2016 and hope it will arrive to France before the end of my Model S's lease in March 2019.

I am also moderator on the french Automobile Propre forum, where I spend much of my time.

Kudos to Trevor and Keneth for creating this community and for their level of knowledge.

For me, this is a sort of return to Canada, because I learned about the Chevy Volt on Sylvain JUTEAU's Québec based website. I used his referal code to purchase my Model S and contributed hereby to help him to win the american Founder Model X.

Sorry if my english is not perfect. I live near the german border and english is only my third language after french and german.

Well I sure hope so. I actually would like to believe that, as a day 1 reservation holder, even from Europe, you’d have a shot at getting your car by the end of next year. Of course that is highly dependent on when they actually reach the 5k/week, not to say the ultimate 10k... the first few months of 2018 will be very telling in this respect!!

Then I’ll add ‘Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome..!!’ We’re glad to have you here, Kratus!
I myself will move to Pau by 2Q18 so if all goes well, my Midnight S≡R≡NITY will be ‘Béarnaise’ by the time I finally get it, my guess at this point not before late 2Q19, since I reserved 6 months too late in ‘16...

Merci.
Danke schön.
Thanks.

I don't know if I'll have much time to spend here. I mostly stay in contact by viewing the video shows (since day one, and the unfamous bangate ;))

In germany, there is a proverb "Vorfreude ist die schönste Freude", wich could translate into "Anticipation is the greatest joy".

And with a Model S as my daily driver, waiting is not too painfull...
