Darn, got a VIN assigned.

    I wasn't expecting to get the call and email for at least a month. I made my reservation in June 2017. Configured an AWD on 6/30/18 and changed to P-AWD without performance upgrade on 7/4/18. Got a voicemail and email this afternoon saying my VIN is assigned.

    Reason for my slight disappointment:
    • I thought I had time to make changes and was still considering the performance upgrade.
    • I wanted to see more thorough reviews.
    • Tesla appears to be tinkering with options still (ex. white interior now available for non-performance AWD). I hope they don't decide to open up the larger brakes with 19" wheels as an option for P-AWD after I get mine.
    I know it's lame that I'm slightly disappointed. Oh well. I'll start being happy and excited tomorrow.

    Cancel and reorder if they let you transfer the deposit.

    Awesome. Most (all?) of the other scheduled deliveries for the P3D seem to be for folks who reserved as soon as reservations opened up. Is Tesla moving through the queue to later reservations now?

    I may actually ask about feasibility of switching to performance upgrade without the $500 change fee. Will sleep on it though.

    I’m curious about this too. I’m a bit stunned about putting in my reservation over a year after reservations opened up and getting the call so soon after P-AWDs started being delivered.

    Congrats Jay! You reserved a year after me and configured a week after me. So jealous! ;) I'm doing P3D, red, white seats, performance upgrade. I'm in FL though. I think East coast is last place in priority, unfortunately. Were you a previous owner?

    My car is all confirmed but i have no VIN and can't edit anymore. This was after my wife said that's it, no more options after i configured and i thought there wouldn't be a chance of ordering white later, but secretly hoped so. I'm calling Tesla Sales when they open this morning and hope it will only be $1500 vs. $2000 to add white to my configuration. Any suggestions on how to do this without incurring change fee? Any thoughts on if i order a vegan steering wheel if that will bump me back in line? I just want my car by mid December but am hoping in the Sept-Nov. Timeframe.

    I want to make an obligatory rage post about how I reserved years before you, configured days before you, chose a more expensive option than you, and how I didn't make changes to my configuration and how in the world do you have your vin before me? But... I'll refrain

    Congrats!

    Not a previous Tesla owner. This will be my first non-ICE car.

    I reserved and ordered mine on June 30th. Same colors as you but ordered P AWD from the start. Where are you located? I want mine yesterday if I could.

    I configured on 6/30 and have yet to get any update. Is it because they haven’t started on P3D with Perf pkg?

    Have you tried changing "trade in" option? If your car is not made, the Edit button should appear.
