    I'm kind of a sucker for little scale models of the cars i own... I made reservation on first day. Are they still giving these out at time of delivery?

    If not, I'll probably ante up on eBay or something.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    We took delivery of model S in April. They only gave our son a model s hotwheel and that goes for everyone in the waiting room :(
    1:18 diecast scale model costs over $200. I doubt they give those away.

    The thread is about Model 3’s. We got one of the scale models with our 3, albeit a few weeks later and it surely isn’t worth $200.

    We got one of the scale models in a little plastic case with our delivery in Santa Barbara on April 26.
    Day one online reservation.

    I wonder if you can buy the scale model from Tesla? I took delivery in Jan before they were doing the models so didn’t receive one. But I kinda want one now.

    We were at the Fremont delivery room for 2 hrs, we saw many people picking up model3 also. They didn't get any scale model.

    Did not get on 4/20 delivery day. I was aware of this give away but was too excited to remember to ask. Or maybe it was cannabis day - it's understandable that they forgot to give me one.

    One day when checking out at my dentist I noticed they had small toys for kids behind the counter including some Hot Wheels cars and among them was a Model S. I mentioned it and she said I could have it. I responded, "that's OK, I have a real one!"

    I had one that was in the space in front of the cup holders. They didn't mention it. My son was disappointed the color didn't match our car...

    I got a red one (my real car is blue) and it was hidden in the console. I forgot to ask about it, then asked at the end and they said they got only one color for shipment. This was a month ago at Fremont

    I don’t understand why some are getting them and some are not. We have all been waiting and all deserve one and if they can’t provide it at delivery they should ship it to you.

    Perhaps having trouble keeping them in stock. I'm sure if you ask, they'll probably get one shipped to folks who don't get one at delivery.

    Red scale model was in the console when I picked up my car at the Marina Del Rey delivery center yesterday (May 5).
