Hi. Yes, we stood in line last year. Getting the Model 3 for my wife, hate oil companies, that sort of thing. Had planned on saving enough to pay it off, but after reading some other threads here, my just go low interest financing and invest the rest. Going AWD with the glass roof, big battery and premium "stuff". Not totally sure. Kind of bummed we have to wait, but hopefully it's a blessing in disguise. Get the bugs worked out. Cheers!

Welcome to the site! Hey the big wait is behind us. Now it's the little wait that's going to feel like forever ;)

Welcome and enjoy the wait together with all of us! ;)
And, on days you get impatient, remember you were astute enough to stand in line to be early, as well as fortunate enough to live on the West Coast... ;)

Much better than those of us who were late pulling the trigger and live east, way across the big Pond! :D

Just a little FYI, Born and raised Floridian. Moved away when I was 23. Huge Hockey/ Panther fan. We will be down in late October to catch a few games. Also hitting Las Vegas and Vancouver again to watch the kitties.

What a small world! I have some heavy travel coming up later this year for work and I'm hopeful that I can turn it into a hockey bucket list trip.

Last work trip I got to see the Leafs in Toronto which was a great atmosphere for hockey. I wish the Panthers brought in fans like that!

welcome Rich! if you've not already, make sure to take a look at the WA state incentive info in the NW section, and lucky you (or your wife) with a new nearby Supercharger going in at Sequim! I'm just hoping for some I-5 options between Portland and Seattle besides Centralia.
Nothing to add regarding the Panthers ;), but so looking forward to how the LV Knights do (especially former Winterhawk Cody Glass!)

I'll just leave this here...
Watching them play only makes me realize just how far away my team is. I was hoping Ilya Kovalchuk was going to return from Russia and be the Florida Panthers second coming of Pavel Bure.

I still like our team and we have tremendous young talent, but man you guys have 3 serious snipers on that team.
