    Okay, thanks. I was at the Auckland Showroom last month to chat with the employees and only saw one 3 on display, had no idea there were three of them there. The person I spoke with told me that the showroom car wasn’t legal to drive on the road since it was LHD.

    Yeah they have had a LHD one for several months, 3 demo RHD cars turned up a few weeks ago for press/test drive duty.

    I've created a form that we can use to track VIN's, confirmed VIN's, Dates, and Country.
    For those who are privacy conscious I've allowed the ability to use XX as your last 2 digits, and for those who are happy to provide the full VIN, that's possible also.

    If you have any issues with the form, or getting it to recognise the VIN (I've used pattern validation to match Model 3 VIN numbers), please send me a message with the VIN and I'll check what the issue is.

    Form:

    If anyone gets the call to pickup their car from the Auckland store in the next few months
    might pay to leave plenty of time for navigating K rd to get to the store.
    Drove past the store today, K rd is a mess from Newton rd to Upper Queen st with road works, closed lanes detours etc
