    Curious if anyone that took the chance of switching from Aero to Sports actually got their VIN and VIN/ delivery?

    Specifically Los Angeles area.

    I switched from Aero to Sport on 4/18 and no VIN. I think the last Sport wheel VIN assigned is from 4/26. Hopefully the next batch of cars is Sport wheels.

    Right?
    The best part is their attitude that this normal and the 3-6 weeks is an estimate. When I ask them why my VIN was taken away they say we did it to ensure you get the fastest delivery. It’s pretty idiotic
    I rather they say oh we screwed up and we make it up to you and you get your car on ....

    Configured on 4/6 as a white aero. Switched to sport wheels on 4/17. No VIN.

    It’s the opposite in Canada right now. So far only 18” aeros in all colors getting VIN’s. No 19” VIN’s yet at all.

    it's like jumping off one checkout line to another thinking that it will go faster but then the person in front of you decides to pay with a check.

    Has anyone in the US switched back to the Aero wheels and received a VIN? I am at almost 6 weeks since I originally configured and over 3 weeks since I switched from Aero to 19” wheels. Was hoping to receive the car in time for Memorial Day weekend, but that seems pretty slim at this point.

    Call and ask them if an advisor has been assigned and ask them to have the advisor call you

    Thanks. I will give that a try. I gave them a call a few days ago and got the standard scripted response: can take 6 weeks for VIN; nothing can be done to estimate or help with timing.

    I think there was really bad timing. People who changed right before the batching switched back to aeros were able to get a VIN earlier. However, it's been all aero for the past two weeks so those who gambled ended up losing out. I was thinking about it but stuck with aero and don't regret my decision.

    Yeah, I definitely should not have changed lanes and stuck with the aeros. It seems like I would have received my VIN by now. In all honestly, I am completely indifferent between the two wheels, I was just trying to get the car in time for a scheduled road trip over Memorial Day weekend.

    User @shakotha on the Tesla.com forums switched their 4/15 config from Aero to Sport on 4/18 and never got a VIN. They switched back to Aeros on 5/10 and received a VIN on 5/11.
