    Carrier Direct Experience - NY

    Interesting that they said that, given that our second one was delivered in the middle of the night 🤷🏻‍♀️ FYI it might not actually be that day, if that’s what Tesla is saying. I would trust the transporter once they call you over Tesla and I’d ask them if they need you to be there. Mind you...

    Do I have any wiggle room on delivery day if I switch to carrier direct delivery?

    I would still probably call them up to switch today - like I said, it’ll take time for the paperwork and they can’t deliver until they have your payment anyways. I would be nervous waiting until the day before the scheduled pick up date!

    Do I have any wiggle room on delivery day if I switch to carrier direct delivery?

    We had two cars delivered via Carrier Direct from Mt Kisco, and I made a post about our experience with it. Long story short, they’d mail you paperwork that you’d have to complete and send back to them (at this point, if you told them tomorrow they *may* ship the paperwork out same day, you...

    Carrier Direct Experience - NY

    Unfortunately, no. Since there’s a delivery center in NY, it needs to be delivered by a NY center for reasons surrounding registration or inspection or something. I think there are only 3 options, all downstate or basically downstate. Rochester is only a service center and can’t do deliveries.

    Yes you would keep the old pricing. Between moving the middle row up and folding down the middle of the middle row so that my oldest (almost 6) can put her feet up there, she’s fine with the third row. Our younger two kids sit in the middle row.

    Roof damaged during delivery

    This. You should get assigned another VIN shortly if you refuse delivery of this one.

    Model Y - sticker near wheel arch

    Oh that’s PPF (paint protection film). Whether Tesla installs them at the factory for you or not depends on where you live, but those are good! Leave them on! @gidster99

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    Just picked up our MYP from the service appointment. They installed the mudflaps and shark fin PPF for free (including materials!). Wish we had known about that with our 7-seater and not spent money on buying the stuff. Not sure if that’s standard across the board, but figured I’d mention something.

    Carrier Direct Experience - NY

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re backed up a bit due to end of quarter. Hopefully you hear something soon! Once it’s picked up it’ll be delivered within a day.

    How to report post delivery issues?

    If you go into the service appointment, you can click on Manage Appointment And should be able to add more items.

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    We have a LR (with induction wheels) and a P now, and TBH it’s not a drastic difference to me. I can definitely tell that the suspension and steering are stiffer, but I don’t see that as a negative, and other than that they’re pretty close in my eyes. Then again, I also used to drive a MINI and...

    We had ours delivered via Carrier Direct from Mt Kisco (we live outside their standard delivery range and too long of a trip to go down to pick up).

    Husband cleaned the car and there are definitely a few issues. The back right door doesn’t close right - there’s a weird thunk and something is scratching the paint near the latch. Some noticeable panel gaps/alignment issues on the back doors, as well, but I don’t know if it’s anything major...

    Yeah we had a really nice lease on ours, but it was totally worth buying it off the lease and selling it. Hope your docs come soon! We’re hoping we get ours sometime this week.

    Carrier Direct Experience - NY

    Cool! We’re actually selling our Ioniq, just waiting to get the documentation from Driveway. It’ll be sharing a garage with a black MYLR7 🙂. The Ioniq is nice, but has absolutely nothing on the Tesla. Haven’t driven the MYP yet, but the MYLR is just so much nicer and more fun to drive. I also...

    Carrier Direct Experience - NY

    So we also had a MYP on order and the carrier direct experience could not have been any different. Keep in mind there was only a month and a day between the two deliveries. MYP was on my husband’s account, and he got more communication from Tesla than I did. Paperwork part was the same. Car...

    I’m not sure, it’s worth asking, though. I know sometime the DC will deliver within that radius, but there doesn’t seem to be any pattern to who gets offered delivery vs who needs to pick up.

    Well, we woke up to a car in our driveway this morning! Carrier Direct experience was so much different from that with our MYLR7. Got a text from Tesla yesterday that it was being picked up; nothing from the carrier. No idea it was being delivered and he left it unlocked. Glad we live in a nice...

    These texts between me and my husband sum it up pretty well. I was going through source code looking for a VIN when I got the text.

    New York/New Jersey Waiting Room

    Pretty much everything is situated - check from DCU sent, down payment paid, insurance added, Carrier Direct paperwork completed and will be shipped back to them tomorrow. “Delivery date” is Saturday, but since that’s when it’s supposed to arrive at Mt Kisco we won’t expect it until next week...

    Delivery date now showing as 6/11. Doesn’t mean terribly much, as it’s just an expectation of when they expect to have everything situated (doing Carrier Direct), but going off our previous experience hopefully we get the car a few days after that!

    Can’t speak to the Bronco, but my ILs got a Mach-E earlier this year. The dealer placed the order in April 2021, I think ILs snagged it during the summer. So, not completely apples to apples because they didn’t put anything down for the reservation, but they agreed to a price with the dealer...

    We have the 20 inch wheels and honestly I don’t know where the rough ride comments come from. They handle bumps better than any of our recent cars, even a minivan. No regrets (yet).

    Husband talked to Mt Kisco. Car is scheduled to arrive there on the 11th and has all-season tires, which we’re happy about. Going to do Carrier Direct, so hopefully we’ll get it early the week of the 13th.

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    We got our LR VIN on 4/27 and the car arrived at the DC on 5/9 (delivered to us 5/13). So, week and a half to Mt Kisco, then a few more days for delivery. Assuming no transportation delays, I think it buys us a little more time, but we’ll see how it plays out.

    There are a bunch of us on the east coast with EDD ranges right around the same time. I’m hoping that’s a good sign, but we’ll see. I think we probably have another week, week and a half to get VINs and make it in this quarter.

    If you are financing, ask Tesla to open up the payment and enter in the bank info. Then your MVPA (which you should ge able to see as soon as you get your VIN) will update and you use that to send to the bank/CU.

    Underside View on New Vehicle Pickup

    In all honesty, Tesla really just cares about getting the cars sold and in their books. Customer service is not their strong suit. You could ask, but I would be surprised if they accommodated that.

    Glad it helped! Didn’t notice this until now because I’ve been trying to cut down on my time here now that I’m not obsessively waiting for our first Tesla 🤪

    I think it finally showed complete once DCU sent the check (they must have sent a photo of the check to Tesla, because it changed to complete before they got the physical check).

    Yeah no that’s not how it’s been working. You’d go back to your same spot in line (confirmed this by briefly switching our MYP back to a LR and then back again. EDD went back to the same range). It’s the people who originally ordered before February that are jumping to the front. Switching to a...

    No, they made a change back in March or April that allows you to make changes to your order while keeping the pricing from the time you ordered. If you want to make changes, your best bet is to ask Tesla or your SA to open up your payment option, then the edit design button will appear, and once...

    I think he just prefers to leave the car with a person. I just got a text when he was on his way (already knowing that he was coming from Syracuse). What time did he end up showing up??

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    Supply chain issues? There have been issues with the matrix headlights and some Model 3s shipping without them. Could be extending to the MYPs now. There have been east coast LR VINs going out and EDDs are moving up.
