    Placed an order for a Model X, Reserved Model 3 a few months ago.

    Taking delivery of the X June. Will this bump me up in the Model 3 Line?

    It's all on one tesla account.

    Yes. But no one knows by how much. If you only placed your reservation a few months ago it will likely not get you to the front of the line though. It should certainly get you in front of anyone that reserved around the same time as you though.

    also depends on where you are in the US. West coast will get deliveries before East coast

    My understanding from the my CPO adviser (this was more than a year ago, however) is that if you're a Telsa owner at configuration time, you will get to jump the line. Though, as others have said, who knows how much. Certainly you'll be behind other owners in your area who reserved last year.

    UPDATE: I've asked an Owner specialist, Delivery Specialist, and everyone at the Delivery center, and all of them said our Model 3 will get bumped up as the reservation is on the same MyTesla account.

    I'll take "people with less insider knowledge than most of TMC" for 500, Alex.

    For those of you who don't know, Tesla Employees are not any more informed than we are, they just get updated sometimes by Tesla, It's never any privileged information.

    Forum members typically know more, but Tesla Employees saying so at least makes us feel better.

    This is still nothing new, we've always known prior owners will get priority we still don't know what that means though.

    I would say it's a huge jump. Current Model S owner reserved on March 20th 2017

    Yeah, posted in other thread. Date of reservation takes 2nd position in each class

    Classes in priority, THEN date.

    Interesting. As a point of comparison, I'm a non-owner in Utah who lined up on the 31st and I have the exact same estimates except my dual motor estimate is Jul-Sep. It would be interesting to get some more data points to figure out if your "delay" is due to region or reservation date.

    Awesome, just like I predicted. The way it should be too, afterall we did fund the creation of the Model 3 ;)
