    At least we know the production schedule for UK is only a few months behind the US West coast :)

    Hi Chris,

    I got one too and I ordered 17 days after the reveal after test driving the Model S in Leeds. Whereabouts in the UK are you?

    Good to see another UK member!

    Hi Chopper.
    I'm from Mansfield Nottinghamshire. I thought they were only sending them to people who did first day orders

    Nope, they are sending them to the whole planet of people who reserved.

    Wasn't expecting the artwork as I'm in the UK but fingers crossed.
    I received my pre order confirmation early evening on Sunday 3rd April.
    Haven't heard anything since despite ticking the "I'd like to test drive an S" option.

    Gee, since everyone that reserved a M3 is getting this artwork, maybe if we track the arrival date of it we can determine when we will get our our car...:)

    I'm sure they aren't related, there are too many people who reserved on the 31st that haven't gotten theirs yet while people overseas are getting theirs.

    There are nearly 400,000 of them to get out - it'll take a while.

    Grumble pathetically online and yours will magically turn up the next day.
    Well at least that's what has happened for me. :)

    I reserved online on day 1 but didn't receive anything yet.
    Small wonder, I always seem to get overlooked at such things.

    Perhaps existing owners who waited in line aren't on the list. My non-owner friend who didn't wait in line received hers over a month ago, as have her two non-owner siblings who signed up online.

    And to reference post #343 or so from the other thread, into which I hope this thread is merged, there have been definitive quotes that confirm that all reservation holders will receive artwork, and linewaiters will receive something else. I of course remain hopeful that instead of spending another (some number of millions of dollars) for paper cards that perhaps the linewaiters might receive a simple code or special configurable option for the Design Studio process instead. Not only would this be tied to *actual paid orders*, but it would incur no fulfillment costs, and could perhaps be treated differently from an accounting perspective. Just a thought.

    Don't fret. I reserved on 1 April and just arranged for the Model S test drive on 15 September, but earlier slots were available this month. Got a long wait and who knows; maybe I'll buy the MS and let everyone bump up one slot for the M3.

    I got mine today. Ordered on-line pre-launch at 7:40 PST. I'm east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Not a previous owner.
