    Finally took delivery of mine this morning. At Chicago Service center.

    Hassle free delivery; more paper to sign than my last house!

    Andrew went over every detail but having read 10,450 posts here, seen the videos, it's a matter of "saddle" time.

    Drove I-90 home and wow. It felt like a car, electric car, should feel. Smooth as silk. All the adjectives posted here ...

    And, now, I too finally have the Tesla grin!

    What does a Tesla grin feel like to me?

    Couldn't think of a better photo than the scene from Love Actually!

    And, thanks to everyone for swaying me during my moments of wanting to cancel. Phew!

    May you will have more units of joy than every letter on every paper that you signed.

    Sorry, no I didn't. I was only there for 15-20 minutes. In the showroom there was a Roadster and where my car was another black one, and a Sig Red above mine in for service.
    Out back was a different story. Just navigating my way around was difficult. There were tons back there.
    And if you ask blue? I can barely tell the difference between blue and black!
    I took no pictures as they're no where near as dramatic as home delivery ones.

    But driving home a few minutes ago from lunch meeting with Tesla Owners Illinois group, I spotted in my rear view mirror someone taking a picture of my (car's) rear end. This is odd!

    Yours was the one with the great big smile because it knew it missed the smack-down blizzard we just got here! ;-)
