    I have two orders with order numbers that appeared on the mytesla site. Is there a way to tell my place in line with these RN numbers?

    Not at this time. But when did you place your reservations? (They aren't orders.)

    When you placed will give you a pretty good idea of where you are.

    I placed mine online around 7:30 and then another one at 8:30. I figured current owners get priority but I don't know what kind of "priority" that'd be.

    If you are talking about on 3/31 during the presentation Elon mentioned that 115,000 reservations had been placed. So figure you are right around there. Being on the West coast may give you an advantage, but they haven't given us those details.

    According to the Model 3 reveal, there are 215 Tesla stores and service centers. I figure 3 minutes per reservation, that's about 1,200 people in front of me every 3 minutes. I was hitting the reserve button in the store after about 15 minutes, so that's as many as 6,000 people in front of me. That's the number I'm going to go with for now, but since I'm a Model S owner, maybe that drops in half or to a third. Maybe even to a quarter of that number if I max out the configuration, but I probably won't.

    But I think this kind of fuzzy math is the best we're going to get for now.
