    Pre ordered on 4/1/16 and sent a message on 7/10/18 (that was in my spam folder) to order the car. Of course it was already open to the general public by then.

    Debated a few weeks on EAP and paint. Went with EAP and MSM. Went to the showroom twice and to supercharging station 3xs to check out the colors and I talked to two owners there today. Also went to Concours Auto Spa and talked to Doug about paint selection today.

    Pulled the trigger about five minutes ago...

    I'm assuming the next step is to get a VIN and secure financing, right?

    Thanks to everyone on the board. I've been reading a lot of good info since joining a few days ago. It also helped me to pull the trigger.

    Welcome! Now you get to spend the upcoming weeks fanatically obsessing about:
    • home charging
    • planning imaginary road trips
    • car wash methods and supplies
    • window tinting
    • paint protection films and coatings
    • dash cams
    • custom wheels
    • screen protectors
    • key fob covers
    • etc.
