    Hi All, after much research and consideration I placed my order today! Now I am wondering, if I confirm my order faster than the two weeks auto confirm does that shorten the time to delivery?

    Pretty sure since people who placed order after I "ordered" on 8/22 and confirmed 8/24, versus my 9/1 are 2 weeks ahead. Model type also matters since P and P+ are priority.

    I imagine the sooner confirmed, the sooner delivered. However every car is unique, more or less.

    Take whatever time you need to be comfortable with your order, but I see no advantage in delaying for no reason at all.

    I will probably wait 24 hours and see if I change my mind. Though I pretty much ordered it fully loaded except for P+

    Yes, it does hasten the delivery. I placed and confirmed my order the same day and got my car about 5 weeks later, a couple weeks faster than the original estimate.

    Yes. The sooner you confirm, the sooner it will go into production. I would wait 24 hours--let the dust settle, and that way you can make absolutely sure you don't want to upgrade to + :biggrin:

    Congrats, and if you confirm today, you should have in early Oct. Won't know until you hit that magic button.

    Oh I know I would enjoy at least an upgrade to P, a P+ is probably too far of a reach. But I am convinced that the HP/Torque of an S85 will be a superb upgrade over what I have driven since about 2002. The extra would only get me into trouble. :)

    I know exactly what you mean ACDriveMotor... I tried hard to keep the car price below that magic $100K with taxes without sacrificing my eventual experience with it!

    I placed my order on 9/5 and confirmed today (9/9). I'll let you know when I get more information.

    I confirmed on 9/9 and got the VIN in about an hour or so later. Late October is all I see at this point and I'm trying not to think about it! I did get a P so that might make a difference in delivery date. Can't believe how exciting it is!

    Yea, the P must have made the difference. I still don't have a VIN 9 days later.

    I confirmed my S85 last Sunday (ten days ahead of the auto confirmation date) and by Monday I had the VIN and my status changed to "Sourcing Parts". My preferred delivery says "late October".

    I confirmed my order 8/28, delivery specialist email within 5 days (over Labor Day weekend), to get things rolling with insurance, sale of current vehicle, garage power, etc AND to say my 85 will be available for pick up on 9/29. Do have a VIN and My Tesla sez September delivery and sourcing parts. NEMA 14-50 installed today. Unfortunately have been glued to this forum for the past three weeks, fortunately rafting down the Colorado through the Grand Canyon for the next two weeks (and totally off the grid). TMC forum DTs isn't going to be pretty...

    Off topic - how or where do I enter all my vehicle info in the space below these messages? Looked and looked but can't find. Thanks.

    You can add it to your signature, but that option does not show up until you have a certain (relatively low) number of posts.

    Same for me BareyB. Ordered 9/8, confirmed 9/9, sourcing for late October. Hoping that moves in some since I waived the two weeks.
