We may as well have a thread for this. A place for rumors on timing and then experiences from the lucky reservation holders.

I just saw on Reddit that a Florida location (not mine) is expecting a test unit in early November.

With that being said I will have definitely ordered and possibly taken delivery though it's unlikely I hit the first month in the 3 month window.

I called my local showroom a few days ago and they had no idea when to expect an M3 there.

Only official info I know of right now can be found here: https://www.tesla.com/support/model-3-reservations-faq
It states:

Will I be able to see and test drive Model 3?
In the coming months, you will be able to test drive Model 3 on display in select Tesla stores. We will share more information on test drives soon. Sign up for the Tesla newsletter to receive the latest news, events, and product updates.​

I've gotten a few of them, but not many. Generally not even 1 a month. Going back through my email history, here are all of them from newsletter@tesla.com (current sending address) and newsletter@teslamotors.com (previous sending address):

I'm not an owner (yet) so I don't know if being one would have resulted in more or different emails.

Which FL store would that be?

Update, for Europeans: swung by the local T≡SLA Store today and the rep (as expected) still had no idea when Model 3 may be on display over here - I don’t blame him... since EU deliveries are not likely before late 3Q18 if you are an optimist, why boost sales too early!! :)
