    That's awesome! Looks like they're trying to fill up the Texas orders today. Hopefully, the 3/21 - 3/25 delivery window applies to all of us too.

    Yeah, I am so looking forward to the March 21 now. I am going to a one week ski trip next week, so it will kill some time for me, otherwise, the waiting is getting more and more torturing now. :eek:

    I experienced the exact situation. I second the response by jslanger, about 4 hours after I spoke with my DS the status changed on my account page. The good news is, at this stage there isn't much value in checking the account page anymore. Give your DS a day or two and then call him or her, their computer link will tell them the projected delivery date.

    Where are you in the Badger State? I use to live in Racine.

    So I had a few paint chips in the bumper that needed fix. Appears that Service would need to send out to painter and it may take 7-10 days to re-paint before I can get the car back. Guess that's in line with what can be expected from Tesla at the moment...since its still maturing as a company. Just venting I guess! That's quite some time for repaint job and sucks that I won't be able to drive the car :(

    Man, i'm happy to see everyone getting updates about their delivery dates.....except that folks who ordered after me are looking like will get their car before I will, and I'm up the freeway form the factory, lol.

    I've been very laid back with my DS, but my car has been stuck on "schedule for production" for over a month now.

    I still have to upload my proof of insurance, but i don't want to start the policy until i know when i'm taking delivery so that i'm not paying out of pocket for a car that i don't even own yet.

    @DMack, I was faced with the same issue and my DS said uploading the proof of insurance was a required step. I told the insurance company to have my policy effective 15-Mar. My delivery date is slated for 20-Mar at the Fremont Delivery Center. Figured having insurance coverage a few days before the target date would be a good idea in case delivery occurs sooner than planned. If there are significant deviations in timing, I can always change the effective date of my insurance policy, though I don't think it will make a material change to my premium payment for the month if I change the date.

    My DS told me I only needed to show I had current insurance and the OA uploaded a copy of my current policy.

    My car has been in production for 8 days. Should I be worried? :confused:

    Nah. It might actually be done, but as far as I can tell, your Delivery Specialist has to change the status for the website to show a change. Mine took 5-6 days in production and was quickly shipped out. When my DS called to tell me it was done in production and shipping, an hour later the website status changed.

    My DS & I came across those during the walk through while I was taking the delivery of the car. They gave me an option to not take delivery and they fix it before they gave it to me or get it fixed via service. Since I was there already, I took the delivery and am now just getting around to taking it for Service later this week.

    I bet it is already in transit, it's just not updated, unless you ordered something really exotic that Elon has to go Mars to get it.

    Randomly got an email from my OA about connecting me to Tesla Energy (upsell). With good information from my brothers and sisters here on TMC, I responded “I just want my car!” He then reached out to my DS for a “soft delivery date”, whatever that means? So, I now have March 17th at the new Fremont Delivery Center. Fingers crossed that turns into a “hard” delivery date. No change to my Tesla Account.

    Not that it upsets me, but their scheduling/logistics are puzzling to me.
    You ordered before me, and some others in here, we both live in the Bay Area, but we're getting our cars after people form out of state who ordered after us.

    Maybe there's some perfectly sound logic to all of this, but i'll be damned if i can figure it out :)
