Hi everyone,

I recently (sep) put in my reservation for a Model 3. Now the long wait begins. I’m sure many of you have already waited a year and hope to get it soon. I am sort of used to waiting. I previously owned a 2004 Prius when it first came out. I had to wait a long time to get that and actually had to travel a ways to get it—they were hard to come by at the time. Right now I am driving a 2012 so called plug in Prius. Can only travel about 9 miles in electric mode--well, its better than driving just a gas car.

Looking forward to getting the Model 3. Been hanging out here for a few weeks and decided to join in. I don’t post much but I do enjoy reading the comments from everyone.

Rolf

Welcome to the forum, it’s great to have you!

You get 9 more electric miles than I do right now ;)

As for waits... this place really helps! Many of us are nearly 18 months already. Hopefully your wait is shorter with the ramp in production.

WELCOME, Rolf! :)

This is one of the very few places where people remind you every day why waiting two years for a car can make sense!! ;)

Welcome!

My wife went through the same thing when she purchased her 2005 prius. The dealer markups at the time were crazy and the wait lists!

She's now driving a 2015 plug in prius so she beats your 9 miles of electric range by 3 WHOLE miles!

Enjoy the wait. We're all in the same boat.

Thanks everyone for the welcome!

I have not actually seen a Model 3 in real life. I bet a lot of you have not either. I sure hope they have some at the LA Auto Show (Dec 1-10). Tesla has a good location at the show right near the entrance in South Hall.
