Hi all,

After months of silently watching all the going-ons on this site it's time to get active.

So here's my short introduction:

I'm a retired Management- and IT-Consultant living in Austria (makes me #3 from Austria afaik).

Car-nut and reformed petrol head you could call me, I guess. I once had a '78 Chevy Blazer (jup, 350 ci, of course) as a toy. Then came the Chevy Volt and that completely changed me. I had the first privately registered Chevy Volt in Austria, drove it for three years. Currently I'm driving a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (sorry guys, I know you are still waiting for that car in North America).

I reserved my Model 3 on April 1, 2016 in the early morning after watching the recorded unveil. Given my time zone, this technically makes me an after-the-event-online-non-Tesla-driving-March-31-reservation-holder. As all of you I'm more or less patiently waiting for my turn. Realistically, I'm thinking late 2018 for me. Going to go with AWD (mountains! snow!) and the large battery.

Thanks everyone for contributing to this awesome site. The information here are pure gold, and entertaining, too. Special thanks to Trev and Kenneth and all the staff and moderators for making this happen! Btw, only after I stumbled across this site I started to use twitter :)

Looking forward to many more months of anxious curiosity and patient waiting!

Take care,
Friedrich
