    Long time lurker, first time post. Just got the e-mail this morning setting up delivery in Fremont for 8/1. In case it helps anyone, here's all the relevant data for my reservation:
    - Non-Owner
    - Line-Waiter (Palo Alto, CA) 10:45am reservaction
    - Configured 6/26 @ 9:48pm Pacific
    - Paying cash
    - No Trade-In

    FWIW I don't see a VIN anywhere in my online portal. It just has the delivery appointment where it used to have the Sep - Nov delivery estimate.

    Congratulations. It's good to know people are getting non-p dual motor cars ahead of September. Hopefully I'll join the club soon.

    What caused you to reject?

    This makes me excited. I keep hearing about P-AWD deliveries being scheduled, but none for just AWD orders... I'm checking my account for changes multiple times a day... I think I'm going to end up like Gollum, searching for the ring!

    My situation/order:
    Non-owner
    Online deposit 4/1 @ 5AM EST
    Config 6/27, evening - changed order 7/10 (color)
    AWD
    Red Mutlicoat
    Premium pkg/black interior
    Sport wheels
    ESD
    No trade-in
    Financing via credit union.

    Can't wait to get a VIN!

    Close! Mine is 5465X. Was anything wrong with yours? Or was it purely for the white interior?

    I'm a non owner line waiter who also configured on June 26 but I went for the performance version instead and I live in Canada. My delivery estimate is still Aug 18 to Oct 18

    Got a call from Tesla this morning (original delivery day) saying they found an issue with the drive unit on my car so they’ll need to rematch me with a different car. Sad to have to wait longer, but at least they found it and not me!

    Fremont. FWIW they provided an ETA of 1-2 weeks for delivery of the new vehicle.

    I believe C141medic meant which drive unit, front or back. At least that's what I'm curious about. Whether or not they are still dialing in production quality on the new front motor. They didn't get that detailed explaining it to you though, did they?

    Ah sorry no they didn’t into those details and frankly I was too depressed to even think about anything anything else beyond getting an ETA.

    Wanted to close the loop on this thread - I just took delivery today. The rematch took 6 days, and then another couple days to wait for the next appointment. Delivered VIN is 5468X

    All in all it was relatively smooth given some of the horror stories here.

    My delivery story:
    - Showed up on time for my 2:45 appointment, was immediately told they’re running 1 hr behind. Ended up being 1.5 hrs.
    - Was asked to sign paperwork immediately. They assured me I could still reject delivery even after signing so I went ahead.
    - I counted a total of 5 paint issues, 3 on the rear bumper alone (see pics below).
    - The rear seats had very deep impressions from the seat belt buckle, indicating the car had been stored with the seats folded down (pic below).
    - Panel gaps seemed ok. Although the proximity sensors weren’t very flush with the bumpers. Every car in the lot had this issue though so I didn’t make a big deal out of it.
    - As others have noted, the rear bumper color is slightly different than the metal panels. This was also consistent with every car in the lot so I didn’t bother asking.
    - No die-cast car or Dual Motor badge. DS had no idea about how I could get either item. Will need to follow up with Tesla directly.
    - Windows, side mirrors, and 1 wheel was not cleaned well so I had them go over it again.
    - All cars came only half charged. I was ok with that, but others in the lot seemed pretty bothered by it.

    Here’s the worst of the pain blemishes, all on the rear bumper:

    And the imprinted rear seats:
    D42D3624-B8B5-4676-98C7-5B4F382359B7.jpeg

    The DS took photos of everything I pointed out and said it’ll take a week or so for these issues to get documented in the system and advised me to make a service appointment after that point.

    Hope this is informative. Thanks to everyone on this forum for all the helpful info that guided me through ordering and delivery!

    So, if I’m following correctly, the first AWD vehicle had an issue with the DU. And then they matched you with a different vehicle and that one has paint/seat issues? Wtf? Why weren’t these issues taken care of prior to delivery? It’s horrible customer service, in my opinion. Not sure how you can reject delivery after you’ve signed all the paperwork and vehicle is in your possession? Good luck and hope they fix everything to your satisfaction.

    This is dreadful. I myself got a call last week saying my car could not be delivered because Tesla recalled certain VIN's or something. But man, I love Tesla, but seriously? When i bought my car 11 years ago, I never bothered to look for any problems, i assumed brand new meant it was all good. sigh.. thats why i am planning to bring my family to have more eyes. good luck
