    Hi, New owner and new to the forum. I picked up my model 3 yesterday and it came with the diecast model. I thought I read in the forums (not sure which one) that people stopped receiving them at some point. I was not a day one reservation holder, far from it. Did Tesla restart giving out these or did they never stop?

    Anyways, I was really happy to see it in the storage area. My wife said I screamed out really loud in joy when I saw it. The Tesla guy was also shocked that I was most excited about the toy car (instead of his demonstration of features)

    What’s your vin number range? Wonder if they put them there at factory and you got a car with the models still there

    I was a day 1 reservation holder and did not receive a diecast model 3. It was on a first come first serve basis per service center. Because I picked mine up at a later date due to waiting for the AWD model to come out, by the time I picked my car up they were all out. Oh well.

    I didn't get mine when I picked up my car a month back at the Dallas service center. They probably ran out of them here. Dallas I heard is in the top 5 model 3 locations.

    I didn’t get one either because I picked the car up before they were giving them out. Which also sucks, so I ended up buying one off eBay so I would still have one.

    I’m way more upset that I didn’t get one than I should be. My delivery advisor said he’d save me one… but he also promised a lot of things and isn’t returning my calls or emails so I am not holding my breath.

    It's just a matter of if a particular delivery center still has any (or had them) or not.....that's really it.

    First, I'd like to get my car. THEN I'll work up to being upset if I don't get my model!

    They give them out on a first come first serve basis. Once a location runs out, that's it. It doesn't matter when you reserved.

    I can’t imagine marina Del Ray being the one who still has them left. That’s where my friend picked hers up from on Saturday. MDR delivers so many cars. On he other hand i know someone who took delivery in Costa Mesa two weeks ago and he didn’t get one.

    i got the very first dual motor performance out of costa mesa. no diecast. i wouldn't be surprised if staff jacked all of them and gave them away to friends or sold them since there's no way to account for them, no liability.

    I'm still trying to figure out what to do with mine.
    Not like I have a toy car collection or anything.
