    I agree as well with the others on the next level of autonomous driving.

    Incredibly inspired by the interest in Model 3. You won't be disappointed. Also, small token of appreciation coming for those who lined up.

    I wonder if he is referring to the in-store gifts this morning, is if it's something else. I hope it's something else. Like delivery priority ;) or a limited edition with special badges. o_O

    lol. Lets extrapolate from the information they have about the people who lined up -- Name, credit card, email address. Now what small token could they all get...
    I think a thank you email, and, at most, a coupon for something like 20-40% discount for stuff from the store like logo shirt or similar.

    I didn't get any gifts this morning at the Toronto (Lawrence) store, did I miss something? I would love to get my hands on some Tesla gear, maybe that's the token of appreciation (or at least a discount).

    My guess would be a voucher for a free spacex trip to Mars.

    Seriously, I think it would cool if it were something like a lottery ticket to a fully loaded Model 3 kind of like a founders edition, but more likely to be something like a tshirt that advertises model 3 are simply says, "I waited in line for a Tesla Model 3."

    I lined up. I was thinking it would be great marketing if they gave everyone who lined up a Tesla t-shirt. Talk about nearly free marketing. I would totally wear that. Kind of like when you get special gear for being a Kickstarter backer of a product.

    Yea I was kinda shocked when I stopped by the local shop yesterday just to 'check the place out' (and buy a hat) and they were all out of Black caps in size LG ... I thought to myself thats odd but had they had everyone 'window shopping' the line today might have gone MUCH longer. As it was it was over 2 hours at my store @ the short hills mall.

    That will cause 1/3 of all American calling in sick at work and line up at Tesla stores! Communities around US will be out of order ;-)

    Not sure about the other stores, but Elon stopped at Century city (CA) to say hi. That truly was a pleasant surprise.

    I like the fact that tesla is making an assitance autopiolot, instead of FULLY autonomous like what google is trying to do.

    You mean my free bottle of water wasn't the small token of appreciation?
