Ok. I’m thoroughly confused!
yesterday Tesla SC Manchester told me my M3LR was allocated on an “upcoming shipment” and all deliveries would be done by 25th December - today I got a text confirming I had a car allocated.
As there are now 464 pages on this thread, and I’m too lazy to read through them all has anyone the foggiest as to when Tesla allocate the cars? From factory? On departure from Pier 80? In the Panama Canal? Completely randomly?!
I like honesty of being to lazy to read back through the pages!
General consensus is that allocation happens after leaving pier 80, not before. How much after is a totally different question and depends on a shed load of different factors that nobody has figured out.
I'd recommend ringing up Friday or Monday and, if you're lucky with a knowledgeable and helpful person on the other end, they could give you some more insight on when to expect delivery. Friday is when the first shipment gets in, so if you're really lucky they might have a match on there from cancellations or some such... Stranger things have happened!
