    Why would you want to?

    To OP: try 3 or 4 espressos. You may still be jittery, but you can blame the coffee.
    You could get lucky and get your VIN 4 days after ordering, and delivery 4 days after that. This is not fiction. It happened to me.

    If you are currently using a J1772 plug, you are in luck, as the Tesla comes with a J1772 adapter in the mobile connector pouch.

    That did happen to me. I ordered on the 5th and got a VIN on the 8th and could have scheduled delivery within the next few days.

    I wasn't ready to take delivery THAT fast either cause I had to get financing in place. I got the VIN un-assigned and luckily, they announced refresh. Now I'm ready to take it as soon as possible but gotta wait.

    Gotta wait for the best things in life, I suppose...

    Yep, have a chargepoint one and a Siemens one. So I'm good to go on charging!

    Dunno. My painful wait was 4 months, and I've put that memory in a deep dark place so I'll never have to remember it again. I'm now waiting for a Cybertruck, but I've got a Model 3 to tide me over. Far more pleasant a wait.

    No way I could handle 4 months of this.

    Wish they could somehow assign a car as it goes into production and you can track and follow the progress as it's built and shipped.

    Buy accessories. Watch every YouTube posted of delivery day, tips and tricks, etc. Wash, rinse, and repeat.

    congrats!!

    After having driven a combined 70,000+ miles across three Teslas, including coast-to-coast drives, I'll emphasize it never gets old. Be sure to check out the SpaceX Hawthorne Supercharger in your area.

    You have a lot to look forward to.

    I'm sure you'll get lots of ideas for accessories. My suggestions:
    • PPF protection wrap for the door sill trim
    • Tesla lettering on the trunk from Abstract Ocean (my preferred vendor - incredible customer service, amazing selection, great prices. Their site is a good way to pass the time)
    • Brighter LEDs for your interior lights
    • Screen protector for the 15" screen
    • Lloyds Luxe Mats if you like plush carpets
    • Aluminum pedals for non P models
    • Sunshades from Tesla
    • If you're ambitious, you can add a roof trunk liner from eBay.
    • Volkswagen grocery bag hooks for the trunk, also found on eBay.
    • For protection, consider mudguards or paint protection film for the lower six inches under the doors to protect the paint from rock chips

    I was lucky to avoid your situation. I bought my M3LR out of inventory in April. No waiting, touchless delivery. I'd say that you should not wish any of your life away, but we are talking about your new Tesla, after all! :D

    Reminds me of our wait.... My wife found a way to look at the tesla website undecoded searching through the code for a vin number (it showes up a few days before you are notified) it was pandemonium when (Evie) finally showed up.

    Maybe read up on the negative post of the M3 and you may start to not want it. :p

    I think it depends on what trim you bought, and what you want out of the car. Tons of people seem to go for PPF, some get the sound upgraded if you get an SR+...

    I have an 2020Q3 SR+ and am very happy with it, so I went for some cosmetic stuff mostly:
    • Knock-off weathertech style floor mats,
    • A TapTes USB port expander,
    • 18” aero wheel kit (removed the covers),
    • “Performance” pedals (why not!),
    • A cupholder thingy (so cups aren’t as loose),
    • Lift pucks (just in case),
    • USB-c charging cables for the rear passengers,
    • White console wrap to match my white interior (this did not work out as intended/I am horrible at vinyl wrap - scrapped), and
    • Mudflaps
    I was considering the $80 wiring harness get the tweeters working, but honestly I’m fine with the sound as-is...

    Ordered a LR AWD mostly because of the superior sound system and already put down payment to get PPF...

    Time to look into accessories now, see what I can find.

    Ok...digging through the site source code is pretty impressive!

    On a side note....can I assume by your user name that your other car is an S30? I have a Z33 track car myself.

    You said Music, Its all music, Crazy train, mind over car delivery time,
    I think time was also a song, you will figure it out when the car is there.
    It has to do with space and time.
