    I am curious. I just hit day 62( almost 9 weeks after order) of crickets from Tesla on my wait for AWD White Interior. What are people doing to keep themselves sane as they wait? Especially day 1 people. I am starting to lose it haha. I need a distraction

    That just made it worse for me. I've got the wall connector staring at me in the garage, the truck and trunk mats flattening out in the basement, and a pile of boxes for things to install. They're mocking me!

    What Model 3s did @Cybarrius , @Runt8 , @wbhokie get?

    I'm sure there are unexplored areas of research we can work on. :)

    P3D-
    Red, White Interior, Aeros

    Got my delivery date (9/28)
    Already scheduled my chrome delete, PPF, tint, ceramic work
    already have my aftermarket wheels (black gloss 19" turbines) - ordered them during july 4th sale! LOL
    already have center console wrap kit, led light upgrades, pedal upgrades, additional front and back "black chrome" exterior emblems, maxspider mats, and a few other small things I can't remember.

    BTW : Based on Model S/X Experience, I think everyone should do at least the trunk (and frunk if you use it at all) LED light upgrades. They really do make a difference!

    Got my insurance quote and it's cheaper than my Model S with USAA by about $100 per 6 months.
    Got my "Funding Secured" through Lightstream as well.

    Remodeling garage - can lights, epoxy floor, wall and ceiling paint and maybe some cabinets.

    Touching up old car for retail sale - simple cheap things like exterior detail, leather condition, remove old PPF, touch up wheels and paint

    I'm not sure if it's 100% necessary, but I took them out of the box (they're shipped rolled up) and didn't want to try to get them to fit back in again...
