    Just found out last night that I now have a VIN, and that the car is in post production final stages, where they go through everything (what ever that means), and it should be ready for shipping in 2 - 3 days to head to Florida. Estimated transit time is 7-10 days to get to Florida to the Tampa center. Getting close!!!!:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

    Reserved almost a year ago, finalized sometime in late fall, but did not opt for the December delivery when offered to do so. Original delivery was projected Feb/Mar when we finalized.

    Wow, when I was at the service center, there were only 2 Model S's there. Hopefully with so many in the area, Tesla will get moving on the super chargers sooner! Orlando / Naples / Miami

    I was told that Dania is getting a truckload of S's every day, and it looks similar to this in the back.

    I was at the Dania Beach Tesla store 2 days ago and they are packed with cars. Also got their first Model S with the rear facing seats. Here are the pics.

    P.S. I am Arnold Panz's source so you know he doesn't make this stuff up. He only makes up his name with is actually Josh.

    I am neither loitering nor trespassing. I have merely chosen an advisable location to await my client's delinquent husband.

    Monday UPDATE:

    She is in TAMPA being detailed as I write this:-D

    Delivery is being set up for Saturday. Can't come soon enough.......

    Lloyds mats have been ordered and are coming the end of the week. Garage was wired last Friday for the plug and all is done and tested. I started cleaning out the garage this weekend - looks like the Pilot may have to go outside......

    Regarding the tag, the previous car's registration has been sent in to transfer the tag, so hopefully that will go smoothly.

    our car is a white/white roof with 19 inch wheels. That may be it on one of the lifts in the back.

    Very excited.

    Know the feeling exactly; I was told mine would arrive Chicago tonight (is she here yet????????) ... and Saturday pick up.
    I feel like a dog with my tongue hanging to the ground, drooling, panting ... OK, not a pretty picture. Of me.
    Almost feel like showing up before then.
    After hours.
    If only to stare through the glass! See if I can get a glimpse?
    Like in a hospital making silly faces at a newborn in an incubator. :)
    Wonder if it's lit up after hours? :)
    Ok, enough already!!!

    Yes it did, arrived from Tamps, Only had about an hr of light available so took a few pictures coming off the trailer. We had Ben as a delivery specialist, and he did a wonderful job. All in the car is fantastic, arrived with 248 miles of charge and 22 miles on the clock, blue with tan, 85 non performance, ( feels a little funny saying non performance) WOW!!! Has piano black, pano roof, tech and sound, dual chargers, HPWC. Due bill, aluminum strip on charge cord and charger bag, thats it. HPWC to arrive in March. Will take some pictures in the sun tomorrow for blue fans, I am speechless for maybe the first time in my life. Appears all my uploads have failed, sorry will try tomorrow. For those keeping track it came with latest update , i think that is 4.2 and everything worked flawlessly, I am breathless waiting for you all to get yours,
