Average waiting time from order to delivery

I ordered SR+, white, no modifications, lease through Lex Autolease on 9th August - no VIN, no delivery estimate. Hoping for early November delivery which would make it 3 months.

I would say wait is 2-3 months. Although that is based on the last 2-3 months. Hopefully the backlog of UK RHD vehicles has been reduced significantly so may be quicker from this point onward.
Mine was a white/black Performance so not the same but I took delivery (which I delayed by a day) 7 weeks and 2 days from ordering and I wasn't a reservation holder. Personally I think that they will have got through most of the backlog now other than the 'unicorns' so I don't think you will wait any longer than that personally.

Its not an easy question. Since they started releasing inventory some have waited as few as 3 days to get their car. Early orders are probably the worst possible example as there would have been a large amount of initial demand that has taken time to fulfill so what the lead time for delviery is going forward now the dust is settling is still unknown.

Personally I'd wait and buy inventory when it appears being a litle flexible on spec (not that there is any at the moment) , but you can sign up to the mailing list on the 3rd party inventory sites. Its actually quite difficult to manage an exact delviery date with Tesla.
