    This new addition is meant for our commute between Hong Kong and China. If Tesla install enough superchargers between here and Beijing, it would be fun to drive to Beijing. 85D over 85?.. for the efficiency different.

    Some people simply like AWD. For the range increase, it's very little when comparing 85 to 85D (5 miles EPA), so I don't see it as a reason, especially in Hong Kong. I do want a bigger frunk (don't know if i would use it a lot but I think the frunk of "D" is not that practical.

    To me, it's either 85, or P85D. P85D is for the insane mode (it's fun, but after considering the potentially higher insurance cost, reduced range and smaller frunk, I decided not to pick for it) And most importantly, I don't want to wait!!!

    Got this today when I clicked into MyTesla: Production Complete, Your Model S is in transit from the factory. Very psyched. Anyone can tell me how long it took from this status to delivery? My status still says deliver by Late-March.

    Think you can expect delivery mid to end March

    Mid - late March sounds about right, it's about time that you get ready for insurance/finance/transferring existing registration/get ready for wall-charger installation and exploring ways to sell existing vehicle .... etc.

    Anybody have information or confirmation on whether the West coast harbour labour dispute may be affecting Model S deliveries to Asia? I got the 'in transit' status at the beginning of January, but delivery may be bumped to mid-late March...that's over 2 months to deliver the car?

    My Model S has been in transit for over a week already. My delivery date is also late March.

    Port strikes delaying delivery

    My delivery has been in transit since the beginning of February and no sign of it yet! I spoke to Tesla and apparently they have no idea where it is.

    yes some accessories are in stock locally in HK. For eg I purchased the indoor sleeping bag and heavy duty rubber mats for the trunk when I took delivery of the vehicle. Best to call first to check whether they have what you're after / price.

    Thanks Editot for the info. Our 85D is here (and it was delay for a month). I emailed Tesla's delivery team and here is the reply (and I don't know why it had to be routed to Tianjin first):

    I purchased my P85D off inventory so had it in a couple of weeks without all of this "fluff". Would have driven me mad!

    I don't understand why they can't be a little more straight forward in their dealings. HK's import regs would not have changed following the Tianjin incident. Customs website (Hong Kong Customs and Excise Department - Press Releases) could show if this is (not) the case.

    You have my interest, if I may ask, what is your unique configuration?

    I'm absolutely loving my new car, BTW. 4,000km's in a month.

    It will be well worth the wait ;-)

The VIN is on the the dashboard and the dashboard also said "Your Model S is being prepared for pickup or delivery."

    Is there a website for you to check the status of your car? I've taken over someone's spot by paying them their deposit (had a new baby and his wife wants him to get a mini van instead now); Tesla keeps saying "around" mid October (the guy originally told me the car will be here in Sept). If there's a website you can check with your Tesla reference number, I'd appreciate if you could post it up, thanks!!!

    You check status of your car through the official Tesla website, a page called "My Tesla"
