Guys, do you mind sharing how long it was from "We are drafting up your contract..." after filling in financing information to the first contact regarding delivery or actual delivery?

After all 2 years of wait, suddenly edit button disappeared last week and my Tesla account was asking for lienholder name and address, I got the loan approved within a few hours and completed the required info. Now it says ..we are drafting contract..." But no contact by anyone from Tesla regarding the next step....

give or take, it took me about 2 to 3 days before the delivery specialist called.

What were your configuration and location? I think if you are in the west it makes a big difference...
True, I'm in LA, CA. I ordered 2 Model 3's and this happened to both. RWD, PUP, EAP, 18 wheels with black interior. AWD Performance with everything except white interior.

It has been quite a while since I posted. Been very busy this summer.

I was invited to order on 6/28 and did so immediately.

Dual motor, midnight silver, EAP. It came to $60k with transportation.

The initial delivery estimate was 9/16 to 11/16.

On 9/6 I was asked to pick a delivery date between 9/22 and 9/29, I picked 9/22 of course.

Yesterday, 9/18, I got a call from Tesla saying that my delivery has been delayed until soonest 10/11.
No reason given for the delay.

I have set up a new date for 10/13.

I still only have and estimated amount, no final payment figure, and no VIN.

I am wondering if Tesla will try to charge me for the new paint prices. Any thoughts on this?

I dont see how they can charge you more for new paint price if you had ordered before.....they should not

Mine has said "We are drafting up your contract and will contact you when you can make your final payment." since I changed to cash over 2 months ago. That message seems like more of a placeholder than anything meaningful.

No, they'll honor the prices they advertised at the time you placed your order. :)

Strange. I reserved on 6/29, so one day after you. I configured mine with dual motor, black, EAP. Delivery estimate was similar with 11/18 being the end of the estimate.

I didn't hear anything for a while. So I called last week around 10/16 and was told that something happened in the system and that someone should contact the same day. I heard nothing until 3 days latter when I got an email and a text saying they'd do a home delivery on the 26th, if I was available, and if I wanted to do a trade in. I said I'd be available but that I didn't want to do a trade in.

The next day I got an email asking me if I wanted to trade in a vehicle on my delivery date for 10/25. I was confused because I had already responded about the trade in and the delivery date was different than what she had said before. I asked them to clarify the delivery date and repeated about how I wasn't trading in a vehicle. Almost a week later and I've not received a response. My account says "We are drafting up your contract and will contact you when you can make your final payment" but people say it sometimes takes weeks before someone contacts them.

I'm a little bummed by this but I guess I just have to wait it out.
