    I think I might have a VIN. Did the reservation no start with a R - now have a single no starting 5YJS...

    BTW All the Tesla staff I speak to UK / US / EU have been really helpful, but I dont have any one contact. Anyone want to share a name / number for someone who seems to be up to speed on delivery dates etc

    Not heard anything on first UK delivery yet... I confirmed my order in early Feb... have my dashboard login working now 'sourcing parts'...

    Spoke to Sales specialist yesterday who had access to more info and he thought it would be delivered in early August... so 4 months wait...

    Very interested to find out how many are destined for the UK before then!

    Mine is still being built according to the dashboard. Will let everyone know when it changes. I'm working on the assumption that there will be a whole batch on a ship to Tilburg and then I imagine they'll come from there a few at a time on a transporter.

    That pretty much exactly it @Nhallwood. I had an interview for a Delivery Experience Specialist position in Birmingham. batches (by VIN's) are handed out to DES and they arrange contact and delivery then any support like vehicle walk though/training needed by the client.

    Praying a get a second interview. :)

    This morning, my status had changed to "In Transit" after 2.5 week "In Production". I did get the email from my delivery specialist a couple of days ago and the prediction is currently w/c 22nd June.

    I am guessing you lucky individuals have VIN numbers that start with 3? (well the last 5 digits, you know what I mean!)

    I am told end of July for delivery... mine starts 42...

    Lets hope our non-air cars either end up on the same boat as the air ones or if not on a faster boat:smile:

    @Vintagemark - my Vin is 354**

    I'm 406XX and seem to be the highest VIN of the June deliveries (well I've been told week commencing 30 June so it will probably be July!).
