    Anyone on here lining up at Park Meadows Mall in Colorado on March 31st to put a deposit down on a Model 3? I'll be there bright and early!

    I know of two or three, including myself, who are going on the 31st. We probably won't be going until around 5 pm.

    Do we know what time the reveal is? Will they be taking pre-orders as soon as the doors open, or after the reveal?

    I will be there, likely when they open.

    I'll be there as well, sounds like I'll need to get there very early if I have any chance to get a Supercharger :biggrin:

    No information at the moment, will update the thread when I learn more. When I spoke to a Tesla representative at the store he mentioned they've been getting a lot of interest and to show up early.

    If they ever confirm that they have a plan for that morning, I'll likely try to be there at store open. All I've heard is they're aware of Elon's tweet but have no further information.

    I'm going to figure out some way to be there early. I see a huge problem for is in the mountain time zone. There will have been two whole time zones (2 hours of the massively populated East coast and 1 of the central time zone) of deposits taken and queued. At that rate, we won't see the federal discount at all or it will be reduced. Additionally, we won't see our cars for months after everyone. We'd be lucky to get them in 2018 (fully loaded cars are rumored to roll out first to maximize profit)

    I was talking to one of the Owner Advisor's there, and he's expecting the 31st to be a madhouse at the store. He even recommended to just do it online the next day.

    Sounds like a good idea. I hope all of you who are thinking of going to Park Meadows on the 31st heed this fine advice. I'd also suggest NOT ordering any upgrades. ;-)

    What? and miss the party?

    I think it is worth pointing out that whether or not one plans to order lots of options has nothing whatever to do with placing a reservation and getting a place in the queue. Actually deciding on what options to order should happen when production is about to start. Lots of time to see how the federal tax credit situation plays out and to see if Tesla says anything more specific about the production order of the cars.

    You might be right. But it is possible that the reveal will happen at, let's say, 7PM Pacific. It could be that a video link would be shown at each store, 7PM Pacific. Of course that would mean that Mountain would see it at 8, Central at 9, etc. But when ordering started at Los Angeles, it would start everywhere at the same time.

    By your reasoning, all of Europe would have several hours head start. The people in CA would be last, maybe getting cars by 2020. Probably not.

    Also, as far as I understand, the discount reduction only affects people who make a bunch of money and don't need help.

    Stopped into the Park Meadows store yesterday. I was informed every Tesla Park Meadows store employee will be working on March 31st and they are expecting a line. Doors open at 10am. That is all... for now.

    I stopped by last weekend and was told the mall doors open at 9am and Tesla doors at 10 but with the new information from the invites saying all reservations will start at 10am PST sounds like they won't be taking orders for an hour? I don't see this going well. I will be there sometime around 9:30 probably. I expect there to be a pretty decent sized line.
