Anyone interested in starting a Model 3 Owners Club in Utah? We live in Cache Valley, so we're not exactly central. But we would be willing to travel to SLC area to meet with other future owners, especially those who get their M3 earlier than us ;).

Anybody in Cache Valley want to get together for the big reveal party in July?

Let's share the excitement!

Looks like you're quite a way's up north, but I'd definitely be interested in meeting up with any relatively local folks that get their hands on their Model 3 first. Hoping the SLC gallery gets one on display shortly after the final reveal.

Same here. Tried a few times on TMC to create a get together and have been thus far unsuccessful. If anybody wants to get together and have lunch I think that would be fun.

Has anyone taken delivery of their model 3 in northern Utah yet? I’d love to see one in person since I’m not supposed to get mine until late this year.
As far as I know, there are only two in the Salt Lake area, both belonging to employees. I haven't seen either of them in person, but apparently one works at the SolarCity office in Draper and the other at the Tesla gallery in Salt Lake. So if you stalked these locations you might catch a glimpse, though I don't condone stalking.

I live in Draper and I drive past solarciry frequently so I’ll have to take a look as I drive by. I don’t plan on stalking these places as that could lead to some other complications. Thanks for letting me know!

I have seen the Black one around Draper a few times, but the owner wasn't around. Otherwise, I've heard the same as Bob; only 2 deliveries to employees so far in SLC. However, current Tesla owners in SLC were included in the last round of invites, so I suspect we'll be seeing 'regular people' deliveries here in a couple weeks. Fingers crossed that non-owner SLC invites are in one of the next 2 or 3 batches of invites here soon.

If anyone gets their 3 here in Northern Utah I would love to see it if you would be willing to let me see it. I’ve now seen a few here but haven’t gotten the opportunity to sit inside of one yet.

I saw my first blue one as I drove past the gallery in Salt Lake on Friday but didn't have time to stop and get a closer look. I could technically order the LR right now but I still haven't decided if I will wait for SR or not. If I do order, I'm happy to do a meet-up in Salt Lake for other reservation holders to check the car out.

That would be awesome, with the features I want I probably won’t get my 3 until late this year or early 2019.

After all this time I finally saw my first M3, and it was two of them in a span of about 1 minute. Both at Thanksgiving point. A blue one leaving the parking structure under the building, and a black one parked right next to me. Just have to track down who they are to get a closer look and build my anticipation even higher!

I got my Model 3 on March 15th.
Congrats! Do you happen to recall how much sales tax was? Or rather the entire registration/tax fee at the DMV? I've read that vehicle sales tax is capped at $900 in Utah, but two friends who have purchased vehicles lately mentioned paying over $2,000.

The Model 3 cost $56,000 and the tax and license was $4059. Expensive but the car is amazing.
Ouch! Do you remember how long the temporary registration lasts? If I recall correctly, Tesla's lasts 90 days before having to register. Just trying to plan finances accordingly :) Still waiting on my VIN.

California temporary registration was for 90 days but I got everything registered in Utah within about a week. If Utah passed the law allowing Tesla to sell here then they will do Utah registrations from now on. That will be a lot more convenient.

Yeah. One benefit for still waiting on mine. It might be a more convenient process by then since sales will be legal in state. Çongrats on getting your M3.
