Tesla may have changed the Tesla store hack. I just checked it and the drop down menu just says "gift or vin not assigned." My RN is not one of the drop down choices any more.

Got a call and email yesterday (June 4th) that my car had an assigned VIN and was on a train to Atlanta. We discussed deliver options, going down to NYC (I'm in Vermont) vs. Home delivery. Tesla adviser felt the car could get to NYC in 2 weeks. Would be closer to 4 for home delivery. I asked if I could fly down to NYC. They said they would cover $250 in travel costs.

Picked up my car this morning! It is pretty surreal to actually have the car after the two + years of waiting. I received the July push back email but got my VIN the next day. It’s seems there is no rhyme or reason to the push back emails.

As far as the car goes I was tempering my expectations over this past weekend so I wouldn’t be disappointed, but the car is incredible. Rides great, acceleration is amazing, and it is bigger than I thought it would be inside. I didn’t even stay for the orientation after I signed my papers because I wanted to get driving! Took it right up PCH and up through the canyons, so much fun!

Hoping those waiting get their cars soon, you won’t be disappointed!

I just checked my account and the "edit config" link is now gone! I'm hoping that still means I now have a VIN assigned!

Can you help point out where the "edit link" is/was? I was invited 4/18, but only configured recently on 5/31. I never recalled seeing an "edit link", but maybe I'm just not looking in the right place...

Go to your account and click "Manage". If you are on a mobile device, you need to expand the "Your Vehicle" dropdown at the top right. "Edit Design" is listed in there. If you are not on a mobile device, you can see it under Tesla's phone number on the right hand side under where your RN is.

Now, I still have to do my financing, so not all of my check boxes are green. If yours are all green, I have heard that the edit link is gone. You can make a change to one of them to un-green the checkbox, and then your edit link will come back. If it doesn't, you might be a lucky VIN recipient.

Thanks for the info. I turned all my boxes green within hours of configuring. The only one I can still change is the trade-in option, which I previously selected as "no". I went in just now to select "yes" and saved it, which turned it back to the gray, but the the edit link still did not appear (remained "view build details"). I went ahead and changed it back to "no" and it turned green again.

Is this a reliable way to check now that HPWC trick is over?

Sorry, I don't know any more. My guess is that is a sign you have a VIN, but I can't be sure. I guess I could go in and change my financing to cash (so all is green) and then change it back to see, but I don't want to poke the bear at this point. I'm 7 weeks from configuring today, so I don't want to jinx anything. ;)

*edit* - Actually, I'm in Texas, so I don't think I can "fake" the system out. We have to pay before the car is even shipped. So, I can't green everything out until I get a VIN and get contacted by Tesla.

Nevermind... I went and found a screenshot of the "Edit design" button and I was looking in the wrong place. Changing trade-in caused it to show up again, and changing in back to green caused it to disappear.
 
For my 4/18 cohorts, I’m on the road heading north from SJ to Klamath Falls and I’ve already seen two trailers but one was mostly Model x’s. What I found interesting was in previous car carriers that I’ve seen leaving the factory the cars in the back have some kind of paint protection but check out my photos and how these model3’s are protected.... are they yours? Oregon, Washington, Canada ? OR are they showroom models going to Tesla stores?? Hmmm...
My apologies that the photos aren’t great but I thought you would find it interesting :)

Same. Been refreshing non stop. Still see the edit button.
I don't think that Tesla is honoring first reserved first offered. I know for a fact there are people who are in the same boat as me and placed a deposit after me, yet they are getting VIN's and deliveries.
