Here At Last


Mar 21, 2013
Palm Coast, FL
It's been a long haul but the ending is sweet. After wifey's repeated vetoes of a plan to get a new A8 throughout all of 2012, she and I stumbled upon the Old Orchard Tesla store north of Chicago. Boy did she change her tune. Deposit made December 2012, but multiple travels in the US and abroad kept me from finalizing and giving the build order as I did not have big enough windows between trips to feel confident about my ability to complete paperwork, pay and accept delivery. Needless to say I had to bite the bullet on the price increase. Knowing that the whole month of July was free of other commitments, I finally said yes to another reminder from Tesla and finalized on 5/20/13 while abroad (Thank you, iPad). Many words have been expressed in this Forum on the bittersweet emotions of waiting and the subsequent joy on arrival so I will not try to go them one better. Instead I'll just attach this picture and let it speak for itself.
