    Hi everyone

    I am beside myself!!! Tesla is about to flood Europe with Model 3s!!! I am so happy and excited to FINALLY be part of the Tesla Family and to be part of this amazing and PEACEFUL revolution! Thaaaank you so much Elon and Tesla Team :)

    3/31/2016 Line waiter (Non Owner) Zurich, Switzerland
    12/6/2018 Got invite & configured (AWD, EAP, Pearl White, White Interior)
    12/29/2018 Started buying floor mats, center console wrap, logo decals... ;-

    And..... drum rolls.... got a call from Tesla today confirming delivery in feb/march and asking some questions like: when do we wish to receive our beautiful car (NOW!! ), if we pay cash or leasing, want to trade our car in, whether we want winter tires (all model 3‘s are being delivered with summer tires) and so on!

    It is finally happening and I am so happy to VERY soon see as many of you out there on the streets of Europe as possible! :)

    Holla!

    Hopefully you can be one of the first to get on a high powered DC charger so we can see how many kw's the Model 3 can take. Exciting times and congratulations on your purchase.

    Hopefully Tesla has cleaned up their logistics act and you folks over the pond don't have to deal with this 3-7 rescheduled delivery appt nonsense. Either way, it's still worth every second of the wait even if it does. :)

    Very glad to see that Tesla has started calling the first future owners!
    Waiting patiently for their call and in between shopping for accessories, but at present tough to find for model 3...
    Where did you get the console wrap ?

    So far we bought our stuff from EV Tuning. They ship to Europe. Haven‘t found any sites in Europe yet, that sell accessories for the 3.

    Careful... you might you overboard with shopping to compensate for the wait :D

    The folks who did my PPF did the center console and tablet. There are several companies like Abstract Ocean that sell kits. Congrats! I made the mistake of overshopping for accessories during my wait. There’s some value in having the car and then making decisions.

    What did you get while waiting? And more to the point: Best buy / Worst buy? ;)
