    I placed my reservation a year ago and have been planning for the moment of delivery ever since. Lloyd's luxe carpets in tan ordered months ago. Blinder 905 quad laser jammer system, Passport 8500ci, and Parking Dynamics electromagnetic parking sensor system ordered and plug n' play cubby control panel for same set up and bench test. Spare nose cone ordered, covered in carbon fiber vinyl warp and Blinder laser transponders mounted. Mounts for EZPass transponder and Passport GPS crafted and ready for installation behind nose cone. Soflauthor CCI purchased and prepped for installation, with Samsung Galaxy III phone mount, 500 mb USB drive for music (all files converted to FLAC), and all cabling set for plug 'n play. And a dozen other details ready, including curbside charging station, Model S outdoor car cover, coat hangers, license plate LEDs, etc, etc. Car paid for, custom Maryland plates (BYBYICE) ordered, insurance taken care of, delivery details arranged with Tesla. Detailer ready to go to work perfecting the finish. Installer ready to do all of the final cabling for the Blinder, Passport, and Parking Dynamics system.

    Now where's the car all of this is for? Delivery will probably be on or before May 1. It's an eternity.

    I just found out instead of mid/late May my Model S may not be ready until June. YES, the wait is a killer!

    Good thing you're not waiting for a 40 - you'd be dead by now ;)
