    I was curious for those of you who received the Model 3 and made a day 1 reservation, if you got the toy model car. I thought it was only for people who stood in line, but I know of people who didn't stand in line get one as well.

    First day in store reservation and no I did not get one during my delivery at the Dedham, Ma store. Apparently they had run out. They told me when I am in the area to drop by and see if they have any.
    Disappointing.

    And by the time my AWD unit rolls around, the chances of the "thank you for standing in line" model is quite unlikely to be even a memory. Seems like the stores just got a bunch of them, and handed them out to anybody who was picking up a car. I'm not sure how they'd planned to tie those to the line-standers.

    I think I'll be OK. I'll ask my support dog. :)

    Stood in line. Got a picture of the car which I have framed. The car itself is about 6 to 12 months away. Hope for a toy car at delivery.

    And if I ever decide to launch my car into space, I can glue the thing to my dash.

    Are they still handing them out, or did they stop? I stood in line, but was waiting for D/P/interior options info before configuring. (still haven't for unrelated reasons, but likely will soon)

    Got mine during delivery just yesterday. Red to match our M3, of course. Three other red M3s and four whites were waiting for their new owners in the Costa Mesa, SoCal delivery center.

    Look...

    we all know....Tesla really didn't care about line waiters - from the beginning.


    There should be a song tilted - "Its all about the ramp"

    Or write a book about it. We already have "Lady and the Tramp"....How about "Tesla and the ramp"?

    I was an online day 1 reservation and got one, yes.

    As to "Tesla really didn't care about line waiters". I guess? A friend of mine stood in line in the same area I'm in and got his car 2 months earlier. Seems like that's a win?

    This person put in a reservation through his mom's account, who was already a Tesla owner. Reservation placed early January, configured early February, took delivery mid February.

    Getting a car you ordered isn't a win.

    We are talking about the TOY. LOL

    DID he get the TOY?

    I received the model. It was in the center console.
