    I just called my local gallery to check that we would be able to put a reservation down for a Model 3 on March 31st, especially given the silly laws here.
    While the answer was essentially "Yes" it didn't sound overly convinced.
    Has anyone heard a specific confirmation that this will be OK?

    Yes, we were told emphatically "Yes" in Dallas.

    I don't see a potential problem. You would go on line and press "reserve" just the same way that you do the Model X.

    I was asking specifically about March 31 - before going online is an option.
    Online opens the day after, on April 1st at which time the obviously will not be an issue. March 31st is different.

    IIRC, there will be a phone in number (at least there was the night of the Model X reveal).

    From what I understood in person orders are being taken a day before online orders. Isn't that true?

    according to an Elon tweet, yes it is.
    Although most of the mechanics of that are unclear, as is normal for his tweets.
    It will all become apparent in time . .
