and my birthday is tomorrow. The good news is that I expected my car by end of Q1 which used to draw the optimistic rainbow and now it could happen before the end of the year!

Anyway -- what a birthday present if the design studio opens tomorrow.

Here's to throwing it out there into the universe!

So, we get to find out tomorrow what your wife ordered from Tesla last month?!

Well happy birthday to you!! However I'm pretty sure the configurator won't open to anyone until sometime in very late September or sometime in October. Production is slated for California first so I expect it to open in geographical waves via invites.

I'm bundling up for yet another long winter... ;)

Happy Birthday!

(My wife and I also have August bdays, but I'm a Leo, she's a Virgo, so I'm always in the clouds and she always brings me back to earth :)
She says "Oh you want a Tesla, then I want whatever I want for the rest of my life"
- "Deal, sounds fair to me!"

Well happy birthday. I wish the configuration would open for you today and you'd be able to share screenshots etc! (maybe it'll be changed from the employee ones we've all already seen... who knows)

Maybe you can get delivery as a Christmas present?

Happy Birthday! I'm hoping to get my M3 by the time my birthday rolls around in late April. I reserved in August 2016 and I recently updated my preferences for the larger battery. Seems like a reasonable expectation based on the delivery estimates I've been given.

No, I was a 10:15 am pre-unveil reservation and it looks like we all got fairly high priority!
Yea, the estimated deliveries don't seem to differ regardless of where you are in the states. I'm wondering if the roll out really will be that way. I'm a pre-unveil reservation holder (but evening time) and in CA and my range is a month later.

It seems like the order is ....

  1. Employees
  2. Existing customers
  3. A combo of time-based & west to east

Maybe that 3 month span takes into account west to east coast? My friend that put in his deposit at like 9am before the unveiling and lives in CA has the same Nov-Jan time frame as you. My 6pm reservation is Dec-Feb (also in CA). Maybe I'm more likely to get it in Dec and you're more likely to get it in Jan? Who knows?
