I am giddy with excitement

So I finally received the invitation to design my car and I could not be more excited. This is the first car I have ever bought new or configured. This is my first EV and I have had the charger looking sad in my garage for months now just waiting for the email. It is finally time!!!!! Sorry just figured I would share.

Congratulations!
Being your first EV you may be new to the lingo. That’s not a charger in your garage. The charger is in the car. What you have in your garage that plugs into to the car is an EVSE. If it’s from Tesla, it’s called the Wall Connector.

...I don’t know about that. Tesla calls theirs a “Supercharger” so I think calling it a charger in your garage is just fine. Plus I can’t stand when people correct other people on forums. PS. You have a typo on “8nto” ;)

You're right, better to let it slide and let the ignorance propagate from one poster to the next.
Was your supercharger comment supposed to be funny? It may just be confusing to a new owner who doesn’t understand the difference between AC and DC charging. Surely you understand the difference, given the “title” in your signature.

Did you receive an email or just log in and notice the page was different? And when?

I ask only because there are rumors that TSLA opens configurations on Wednesdays and Fridays.

I need to know if I should start "F5'ing" today or wait until Wednesday. :D

If you're using Chrome, Vivaldi, or some other Chromium-based browser, I recommend Page Monitor. No need to F5 at all. You can instead just glance up to the corner of your browser incessantly, instead. Saves some keyboard wear.

Can you tell us the date and time, and if you were inline or online reservation holder? This will help us alot to start out the conversation. Many of us inline waiters have not received invites, which is troubling.

I just turned it off today. Had it monitoring my Tesla account page and I'd get a false positive almost every day. Perhaps I had it configured incorrectly?
