    Hmm wish Tesla would give better delivery estimates, its pretty maddening. I think this has been my history:


    1. Order the car - Told beginning of January
    2. Get to production Jan 2nd - Told Jan 15th.
    3. Production ends Jan 6th - allowed to schedule delivery, earliest is 10AM Jan 17th.
    4. Told "expected ready date moved" - moved to 10AM Jan 18th.
    5. Told person is on vacation - move to 11AM Jan 18th.
    6. Told delivery truck is delayed - moved to 4PM Jan 18th.

    If they had just told me Monday, Jan 20th and been safe about it, I wouldn't keep having plans change.

    I can understand. The time from ordering to delivery seemed endless, and I ordered an inventory car that only took 10 days! The wait is more than worth it.

    I know it's frustrating to have your car delayed a few days - Model S anticipation is hard to deal with. But don't feel too bad, there are lots of us here who waited years for ours!

    I vaguely remember going through this a year ago, though it's all a long forgotten memory. Once you get the car, you won't remember anything about it before the 18th. :)


    EDIT: Ah, yep - found it (yay, search!)

    Delayed again. Truck broke down and cars moved to another truck. Delivery Monday.
