How far ahead should I order?

I currently have a lease ending in March 2022 and see the EDD on Tesla’s site for my build is February. I’m trying to avoid have 2 cars at once, so would ideally take delivery for the MY sometime in late February or early/mid March.

Is there any harm in placing order now, and if I get a VIN ahead of time, pushing back the delivery a few weeks? I heard they allow you to hold delivery for 60 days, is that true?
That seems like a good plan. What you've heard is what I was told at our local Tesla store about pushing out a delivery.

It is unlikely they'll get their act together super quickly and see much sooner delivery times. All that could change once Texas starts building cars. They might get caught up faster.
