    No, don't know how to check where I am on the wait list, though expressed interest to SoDo on 7/17 (day of announce) and ordered within a couple of hours of online orders becoming available, so hopefully not too far down the list ;-)

    After hearing the additional SCs doing this upgrade now, I reached out to onlineorders and SoDo yesterday to see where things were coming along. I'll post what I hear back

    I asked to be put on the "the list" in Bellevue within a couple of day days of the announcement, put deposit down within hours of it being available online. Let me know what you hear back.

    --- Update ---
    Just got scheduled for mid-march appointment. :smile:

    great to hear. At Sodo? I heard back yesterday that scheduling was imminent, though I didn't get a date - maybe you're ahead of me ? :)

    Not Sodo, Bellevue. So probably a different queue. :smile:

    Woot! :-D. I was notified that the upgrade parts for mine arrived today and we agreed install date of Feb 22. Giddy anticipation here, though also a little worried about maybe being the Guinea pig ;-)

    guidance given:

    When you bring the car in we need to make sure the battery is depleted as much as possible with no more than 60 miles of range remaining.

    I will provide a vehicle for you to drive while we have yours.
    Please note: Model S Loaners are limited in availability and are not guaranteed, however we can guarantee complimentary alternative transportation (i.e. valet/shuttle ride, or an Enterprise rental car) should a Loaner be unavailable.

    FYI - Picked up my p85d post ludicrous upgrade yesterday morning.

    Dropped off at 8am Monday with < 20% SoC, car was test driven at 2pm post upgrade, though with SoC only slightly higher (27%) and < 10 miles. I see a few 0-60 launches, and was called approx 4pm that the car was ready, though still charging if I wanted it that night. Unfortunately, I was unable to collect it that night otherwise it would have been just a day to do vs the 2 expected.

    Overall, the car feels much more responsive on the freeways at 30-50 and 50-70. 0-30 feels about the same, though it really wants to pull much harder and longer.

    Initial data being posted on LolaChampCar's CAN thread for some pre/post upgrade comparisons from generous loan of their CAN logger here: http://www.teslamotorsclub.com/showthread.php/61570-Chassis-CAN-Logging-To-ASCII-Text-Plus-Graphing?p=1385060&viewfull=1#post1385060
