    I have ordered the 85 in white with pano roof, tech pack, sub zero, leather seats, Alcantara, black piano interior, 19" standard wheels last Monday and just missed end of May delivery by one day!
    Am so excited cannot wait!

    i do however have one question that you may be able to answer?

    have noticed on the purchase agreement a statement on the left hand side, that so far no one at tesla can answer or knew about. Is this to cover various countries I wonder?

    it reads:

    price indicated does not include taxes and governmental fees, which will be calculated as your delivery date nears. You will be responsible for these additional taxes and fees.

    roll on June!:smile:

    I have checked both my 'Model S Order Agreement' and my 'Final Invoice' (the latter of which you probably won't have in your MyTesla 'DOCUMENTS' yet) and all the numbers are the same. I expect it is just a 'get out clause' should HMG suddenly do something daft to change tax on imported cars or something. MW

    Thanks for confirming Martin

    i saw that message too and assumed it was a default thing for an American company. They always add sales tax on at point of sale, I assumed it was that.

    Glad there is no more charges!

    ive guessed around 29th may to 5th June for delivery.
    very quick turnaround from confirming order on the 10th April!

    That is very quick, when I ordered mine in July it arrived into the UK end of December. This was around the autopilot upgrade time so I think a number of cars got stuck in the production queue. Gary

    Wow very quick, congratulations!

    Does it give a delivery date? I thought 7 weeks was the magic number for in transit vehicles UK bound.

    Hopefully its a speed boat as can't stand this waiting!!:smile:

    Yes its 7 weeks according to my delivery specialist in west drayton from the point of confirming the order. Doesn't give an exact date but it just says june, when i put the deposit down in march it said late june.
    I may get a date perhaps in another week or so?

    Thought I'd share some good news........got a delivery date!
    weekend of 26th! Is technically the 29th but been told it will be here the Friday before but can only get there on the weekend!
    Gonna be the most painstaking part of the wait as its so close.
    Been delayed by a few weeks due to getting caught up in amongst a lot of orders for something ending in 'D' in the states!?! lol
    My chargemaster got installed last Friday too. Soooo exciting as its starting to feel 'real'. If you know what I mean?

    Thanks for the update!

    I think a little longer than many of us hoped. That is 54 days between leaving the factory and arriving for collection. I think most of us were hoping for closer to 6 weeks max.

    look for a white 85 and that will be me!

    - - - Updated - - -

    When are you getting yours?
    There seems to be a fair few of us in or near Bristol now with Teslas, there are two that I know of in portishead! Add myself in Clevedon and surrounding areas, quite a concentration it seems? Which is great!!

    There should be a couple of new owners from here in South Gloucs - car due end August. When I ordered in Jan I thought surely that will come forward. Nope. What a wait - I did the last minute change as I had not ordered dual motor or air suspension initially and I added those before I confirmed.

    Hope they find a Service Centre location soon - sounds like it has been hard work securing a location.

    Collecting tomorrow!! Can't wait, like a kid at Christmas!
    remember chinny, look out for me!

    Hopefully brunel, yours can be collected from the Bristol service centre if they pull their finger out in time! Lol

    i may start nominating some places soon to help. I know they will need or want certain things but it wouldn't hurt I guess?
