    For those who have already ordered, how many kiosks were available and roughly how many people are able to register in an hour?

    We were told about 4 minutes per reservation and 6 employees taking reservations at Corte Madera. So they should work through the line at about 90 people per hour.

    iPads take a little longer to type, but a decent iPad user can fill in the 1 page form in 2-3 minutes. Best advice is to volunteer to read off your details (CC number for sure) to speed things up.

    Sarasota had 4 employees doing reservations and 2 directing traffic. I'd estimate that about every 30-45 sec a person in line got to go in the store. It was a very quick process, if you have your credit card out and don't ask questions.

    Houston, TX North Fwy had 3 stations, taking no more than 3 minutes each. They got through close to 100 people in a little over an hour, and there were another 50 or so waiting.

    The URL was http://model3.tesla.com. Already tried it from outside. It's probably blocked until tonight.

    It's not an app. Just a web page.

    Galleria Houston has 3-4 ppl taking reservations. It was very quick once we got inside. We got in line at 930 and were out by 1130. Just in time for flight back to San Diego! I really enjoyed talking Tesla to all these new adopters. Many, many millennials in line. Maybe the planet will be okay after all!

    Tampa had about 8 ipads/computer. Took me 80 minutes to get through line. I didnt count but would estimate 150 - 200 people. I was in line at 10.
