    Very Very excited! I just ordered my Model S75D! I can't believe it's happening.

    Now the waiting game. :( Got my confirmation email from Tesla...what happens next?

    Congrats, now you spend time reading these great forums until the day comes when you have your delivery scheduled :) Hope you used a referral code, if not PM me and then call your OA to get them to update your order.

    Chill out people. If he wants a referral he'll ask.

    Anyway, congrats!

    Me too. Used a friend’s referral code. :) ‘Your Tesla order has been confirmed and scheduled for production in our factory. Estimated Delivery Range: February, 2018 - Early March, 2018’ UK, S75D, red, EAP.

    No worries guys! I DID use a friend's code. Now I'm hoping Tesla can build me a perfect car, in a short bit of time!

    Here's a link to my article on the ordering process if you're interested.

    Congrats! As to what happens next...after the order is confirmed, a Delivery Specialist will be assigned to you. His/her contract info will show up in your my tesla account, and most likely they will get in touch soon. When they do they might be able to give you some more details on a scheduled production date and approximate delivery timeframe (the ones in your my tesla account will change, and possibly be inaccurate, but the info my DS gave me was spot on).

    Also they will guide you through finance or lease options and trade in details.

    If it hasn't already, a section will appear in your my tesla page to upload copies of required documents such as your drivers license and proof of insurance. You will also begin to see documents such as owners manuals and required disclosures appear there.

    After that, apply for financing (if your going that route) at the time given by your DS. Financing approvals only last about 30 days and vary by lender, so make sure your delivery range is pretty set before applying.

    Finally, schedule a delivery date! Delivery is pretty straight forward. Only one signature was needed for us at the showroom. Any financing and down payment should be handled by wire transfer before you show up. Since I live outside of CA, they fed exd me a temporary registration and associated paperwork the week before. The day of a Tesla rep will guide you through an inspection and explain the features of the car as well as help fix any issues on the spot or compile a due list to be done later.

    Hope this helps. I know I read a few bad stories on here about issues people had, but my purchase process was nearly flawless.

    Post here and let us know what your DS says about a delivery date. I'm very interested in seeing what the current dates are when ordering now, whether we're still in late Nov or Dec - or even Jan.

    We ordered on Sunday, so today is the last 3 calendar day recission day.

    75D / EAP / Metallic Blue / Cream

    They gave us a estimated date of Late Nov . . .

    thanks @Tommy Bahama and all as well.

    I've been emailing back a forth a little with my local Tesla shop lately, so I mentioned to them that I ordered. The OA got back to me and said they would be assigning a DS shortly and to expect a late November delivery. I'm hoping it's sooner, but I think he was just going off "Big Tesla's" webpage predictions for now. I will keep everyone posted when I hear more.

    Cool, thanks or the head's up. I'm really hoping they can make mine faster. I've heard of some folks getting closer to the 6 week from order to delivery window, at times. Maybe it's based on your proximity to Cali as well? Late November (as I've been told) is 7 weeks for me. :confused:

    I just placed my order yesterday and my DS said the estimated build completion date is Nov 13th, so you're probably good.

    Wow, that's cool! Wonder how they got that info!? My DS hasn't even reached out yet, but the OA did and said they typically wait till it's closer before the DS gets in touch.

    I did mine a bit backwards and contacted the DS I wanted to help me (from a recommendation) before placing my order, so he was able to pull it and look. Once the order confirms you can find out who your assigned DS is and they can look all that stuff up for you.
