    We finally made the jump and ordered an inventory S75 Friday, just in time for the 0.99% financing. The car has been sitting at Fremont for at least a couple weeks, and will (hopefully) get delivered to our home this evening.

    While it's kind of nice to have it delivered directly to our home, it also seems a bit strange. It will be dusk, so lighting won't be great. Any tips/suggestions on what to check for, or questions I should ask? What should I expect / demand out of the delivery experience? Is there any scenario where I should refuse delivery?

    Super excited, but nervous too!

    Thanks! I knew there had to be something like that out there...
    However, this one seems kind of dated: " There are 120 SCs open, and more opening every week."

    Mine was delivered via flatbed and I didn't have any check list etc.(wasn't aware of this forum at the time...ignorance is bliss i guess) and it's been awesome for 22000 miles so far. I would definitely recommend the Plug-Share app which comes in very handy.

    Congratulations on your purchase!

    You said they are delivering your S75 today and qualified for .99% interest rate. I am picking up my car tomorrow and was told my rate would be 1.49%. Was never told that rate was changing.

    Delivery was REQUIRED to be no later than 30 Sep or no 0.99. . . . unless you signed the paperwork on 30 Sep or before . . . you're gonna have a surprise.

    Yeah, the sad thing is I could have had it delivered last week, but Delivery Specialist didn't mention the Sept 30 cut off of .99% interest rate.
    More than irritated at this.

    I would escalate that if I were you. They had some issues around this interest rate and end-of-quarter "delivery" goals. That rate is worth a couple/few grand over the life of a 5-6 year car loan.
