    Unbelievable. I configured 4 weeks ago tomorrow and haven’t heard jack squat from them.

    It's been suggested that Texas deliveries are taking longer... maybe related to the fact that Texas is not a Tesla-friendly state.

    Configurator arrived Dec 14.
    Locked config on Jan 24.
    Delayed on Credit on Feb 2.
    Credit Finalized on Feb 6th.
    Made Appointment Feb 7th.

    Chose 18s, Grey and AP. 60 month loan at 3.04%, but was offered 48 months at 2.99% - both with Chase. One hard pull.

    Excited to post pictures tomorrow!

    They didn't setup my account for ACH or even give me the final delivery price on time - I had to call my delivery specialist 4-5 times and got it on my Uber to the dealership.

    Delivery was neat and considered. I think the rep got one or two things wrong, but super friendly, and really got that it wa a big deal for me. He said FW was updated, but got an update at the dealership, updated that night. Didn't get a binder or pen, nor a "Zero Emissions" sheet in the license plate.

    AP was ready to go within 40 miles of road driving. It's pretty damn sweet. Was so excited that I didn't realize the car wasn't in AP and almost had a fender bender until my wife screams. (Will the Tesla, not in AP, stop at 2-3mph?)

    Learning to do self-park was a bit weird and I still don't have a handle on when it works and doesn't. Car drives like a dream; at least to a neophyte Tesla owner. The speedometer in the second is weird for about 15min and then it's natural. However, it's easy to zone out on the map and not watch forward on AP. Closing the frunk is a bit weird, have to lay it down on the hinge, then close.

    One major issue - the drivers side door handles (front and back) are stuck up - so when you close the door, it doesn't close (and the window stays down.) Have to EXIT the car, push it in and get back in. Already emailed in as an issue.

    Also, the damn thing scratches like a Mofo. Already have one on the trunk that I can't explain. (Any advice on Vinyl?) Also the center console already has a bunch of minor scratches.

    Congrats. The 12v battery should be dead and you locked out of the pos in a couple weeks.

    How responsive has Tesla been on defects such as the ones mentioned?

    Is Montana a "Tesla friendly" state? I've heard tell of people that register a company there, buy via that company, and register the vehicle there, avoiding State taxes on the vehicle.

    Asking for a friend.
