    Unfortunately this thread is dead because everybody is getting-em. Line waiter or not.

    Not really.

    Elon quoted how much Tesla / he appreciated line waiters and that they would receive "something special". He said this right after he talked about why Model S and X folks will get free supercharging - that being because if his appreciation of those who purchased S and X's - providing a clear path for the model 3.

    Yes...indeed. Well kinda.

    Look at the title of this thread.

    It doesn't matter who got a line waiter replica...….because everyone is getting them.

    So....maybe more truthful than humorous.

    I was 3rd in line on Day 1 at my local Tesla store, and I got the red Model 3 model in my center console.

    Do you think they actually put some sort of special flag on the accounts of all of us that waited in line? I seriously doubt it and am not expecting anything other than my wrinkled artwork (thanks mailman) and my toy car (which has been beat up and well loved by my toddler).

    I waited on a long line in Fremont to make my reservations. Picked my (first) Model 3 up on Christmas Eve. No toy. This is the first I've heard of any such thing.

    So...you are not considered a line waiter...

    Will someone please delete this thread?

    Day 1 reservationists are not the people Elon promised "something special" to.

    How many times must this be said?

    I did not when I picked up my car back in January. Supposedly I can swing by a delivery center and they’ll check the VIN and give me one but I haven’t had the time.

    I don't know why you opened this thread because a toy model car wasn't promised to day one reservationists.

    I'm just curious who got one. I thought it was only for people who stood in line, but I got one and I wasn't a line waiter. Based on the responses it seems like almost everyone is getting them.

    UPDATE: Tesla Model 3 Day 1 Reservation Holders Diecast Gifts
