    I'd say Tesla didn't want to ship any new MX or MS separate to the Model 3. Just chuck them all on one ship and save money. This means that your cars are probably on Cap Capricorn on the way to Sydney right now. This also supports why they may not be giving you any info since they can't disclose where the M3s are.

    Nevertheless, I hope you guys get your cars soon! Once you have them the wait will be well and truly worth it. Great to see more Teslas in Melbourne as well, now I'm only hoping you're around Moonee Ponds/Essendon so I can spot you on the road.

    Cap Capricorn AKL to SYD is a container ship so I don't think we're on that one. Do you have any more leads?

    I placed an order start of May, 3 months later and there's no delivery date even discussed.

    It's much longer than 7-8 weeks.

    Orders only opened on the 31st of May in Australia.
    Don’t worry it will be worth the wait.
    Many people here reserved three and a half years ago.
    Just a little further...

    @bbqluke and @Wol747 for what it’s worth, the sales experience (particularly delivery specialists) is the weak point. Servicing is much better organised.

    Thank God for that! Some of the reports from the USA section are disturbing and I was worried that Sydney service might be the same.

    It’s very centre-dependent. Some centres in the US are great, some are terrible.
    I can only speak for the Sydney service centre, but they have been amazing. Doesn’t feel quite as special as it used to in the early days but still very good.

    This makes sense, I guess I am not the only one.

    Looks like some really bad management occurring in Australia. I feel sorry for Elon in a way, as I can't imaging the amount of incompetence he has to put up with.

    When I called the Melbourne delivery centre, they basically said the same thing you mentioned. "System is down and we are waiting for it to come back online". then no replies.

    L O L.

    I have told Tesla I don't want old stock. If they can't deliver a new car I am not buying one.

    I think it might be best I wait for a couple more years, my Model S is only 3 years old.

    I don't want the company to suffer. But it's really only going to be because of the company's internal factors that cause the most damage to them. They barely have any competition at all in the electric space.

    Tesla delivered the first batch of Australian Signature Edition cars, fully spec'd, but built just before AP1 was installed. By the time the cars arrived here, they were already obsolete. They rebuilt them all again, this time with AP1 included. I can understand them wanting to avoid that scenario again with a major upgrade like Raven

    My info from the Sydney delivery centre is that a whole pile of Models S and X are, together with 3s, on the water now.
