Just wanted to say Hi to everyone. I've lurked around here over the past year and finally decided I might as well join in on some of the conversations.

I work down in North county San Diego as a guidance navigation and control (GNC) engineer on some unmanned vehicles. So I have some interest in technology etc.

My first car was and CJ that would continuously break on me, but I still miss that car. My primary vehicle for a long time was TDi, and the buyback was pretty much perfect timing for me to upgrade. That was true up until the HPFP starting throwing faults and the car would go into limp mode. So I did the buyback early and I had to pick up a filler car in the mean time.

So here I am waiting for the model 3 like everyone else. I'm really looking forward to never stepping foot in another gas station and having EAP help sit in traffic for me.

Welcome to the site officially!

Are you an early reservation holder?

Yeah. 3/31 online around 8:30 pm PST. Currently showing first production is Dec - Feb for me.

Hoping I can get myself a birthday present since my birthday is in the middle of Dec. (Wishful thinking here)
