    Hi gang - still in bit of a shock, but I've just placed a deposit for a Model S inventory car. Below are some of the details:

    900 miles on odometer
    75 kwh
    Black paint
    Next gen black seats
    Dual Motor
    All Glass panoramic
    19" slipstream with primacy tires
    Black Alcantara
    Autopilot

    Purchase price of 76k with 1k referral included. They'll be waiving all fees (including Doc fee).

    Feels like a good deal. This car will replace a 2007 Mazda 6 with 160k miles on it.

    Beyond excited. Any tips/suggestions from owners on steps forward would be awesome.

    Wow congrats! You are getting a great deal! I have the almost same specs except a 60 and I paid more (6 weeks ago).
    I would get to work on a hwpc install... Oh and don't worry about buyers remorse (I did), you will love the car so much you won't regret it.

    Yes, in the same way that a Learjet might "replace" a Cessna. :)

    Thanks very much! I feel like I won't fully process the purchase until I take delivery. Good thing is when I purchased my house I had a NEMA 14-50 plug added to my garage, so I'm ready to go!

    Yeah... I don't think I'm mentally ready for the step up I'm about to experience. The poor Mazda has a hole on the floor and the left side airbags have been deployed (I've stuffed them back into their holding area because repairing them would've totaled the car a couple times over). However, it's been a champ and I will keep it as a backup in case of any emergencies.

    Congratulations. Welcome to the club ;). After 2.5 yrs of deliberation, we placed an order for an inventory model this week. Still cannot believe it and its been hard to concentrate on my work ;) due to the excitement and eagerness for the delivery day sometime next week.

    That's $10K off MSRP. I guess Tesla is starting to discount way more than the $1K for each 1K miles and $1K for each month.

    there has been other thread about discounts cars going on right now. I think this is the typical discount going on right now for 75D.

    Actually I think I get a little bit extra sweetness on mine because the odometer was reading above 50 (900 miles). I believe the standard 75 discount is about 7.6k, which is an attempt to offset the 60 upgrade to 75. Believe this is how it was explained by my specialist.

    We managed to get 26,100 off an MS P90 DL. You will love the car.

    That's amazing! I'm excited! I won't be beating very many supercars in a drag race, but I feel like I got a great deal. It met all the minimums I was looking for.

    I have really enjoyed the 70D. 26,000 miles in 15 months went by in a flash. I still can't believe all of the deals people are getting right now. Early christmas.

    Only ready to go if you pick up one of those 14-50 adapters before they disappear again.

    I already have a NEMA 14-50 plug in my garage. Do I need anything else?

    We installed a HPWC next to our 14-50 plug. If the HPWC goes bad, we will use the 14-50 outlet while the HPWC gets replaced. We really enjoy how easy it is the use the HPWC. Best advice I received prior to our MS getting delivered was to install the HPWC.

    I'll look to do this in the future. My daily commute never exceeds 50 miles so I don't foresee it being an issue.

    No.
    Wuggado may have been thinking of the 14-30.
