    Alright boys and girls

    Aside from all the chaotic and stressful problems from my Model X (It will all be fixed anyway). Let's start something fun. Since the Model 3 has just revealed today, it looks gorgeous IMO. How many Model X owners here will also be getting a Model 3?

    I have waited 2 hours in line this morning in Costa Mesa Tesla to put down $1000 for a Model 3. I guess I will be one of the first batch to experience the Model 3 again, hopefully no more problems for early adaptors. Anyone else?

    I reserved online at 7:22 PM, I wanted to go to Costa Mesa but didn't want to stand in line. How crowded was it?

    Oh Wow, I hope I don't fall too behind as far as delivers go. And now since the roof of the Model 3 is all glass, I must ask Elon Musk to make a sunshade.

    At 8:30pm Pacific Standard Time today, Elon said there have been over 115,000 people placed orders so far. So you going to be in maybe 100,000ish? But since you are also a Model X owner, you will be one of the first before non tesla owners to get the car. So i won't worry. I placed my order exactly 2 hours after the store open, so i assume i am in the thousands or 10,000ish, maybe.

    I hope so, I got a chance to order a couple minutes before the official launch at 7:30 cause someone leaked the reserve URL this morning but it didn't work until 7:22 and Tesla didn't redirect their home page until 7:30.

    It is a 115,000 world wide so it should be less in the U.S and since I will be getting the Model X and I am in CA like you, hopefully we will take delivery around the same time!

    oh man, you are I are hardcore Tesla Fans, I think @Mark Z will be getting a Model 3 also, i have seen it somewhere he posted before. Even we have problems with X, it does not stop us from buying Teslas because they are just so so awesome!

    Haha, I am still waiting for my X. Hopefully mid-April delivery at Costa Mesa. My Wall Connector will be installed tomorrow so I can just watch it in my garage for a couple of weeks.

    I hope the build quality issues are resolve soon and that they fix yours as well. I recall that they will close the factory for 4 days starting tomorrow.

    For the X my main concern is the sunshade, as my family is sensitive to sunlight and same goes with the Model 3. Build quality is next...

    Reserved my 3. I am on the other side of the International Dateline so if there were a store here in Guam, I would have done so yesterday!

    Congratulations guys! The model 3 is going to change the world of automotive industry. S and X are marketing tools, Tesla's true intention is mass market electric cars.

    I will not be reserving a Model 3 for the same reason I waited for the Model X over buying a Model S sooner. Sedans don't appeal to me - I like crossovers. I'd be happy to jump in line for a Model Y though.

    Ordered the 3 when I woke up. 150K orders in =(

    Since I have an X though, that should help.

    I reserved a 3 in-store yesterday. We have an X coming to replace my wife's car and the 3 would be my car. Would make us a fully electric household.

    I put my order in for the 3 and have 2 days left to cancel my Model X! Conflicted if I should just want to wait for the 3...
