Got an email this morning from my DS that production is complete and the vehicle will be en route to Rockville in the next 2-3 days. He indicates we are on track for "late september or very early October" delivery (despite the website listing 10/7-10/21).
Awesome AuKirk! I live in Odenton MD and close on my house in mid October so I am trying to time everything right. I am taking delivery 10/30 (keeping fingers crossed) but would be interested in getting the info from your electrician if they did a good job at a good price.
I ordered my this Monday. Spec as follows:
Living in Norway, the winter package is a must, as are winter wheels. As for the color; most Teslas around here are black or red, with some white and grey. The blue is by far the least common color, and to me the prettiest one.
- Model S85 (Rear wheel drive only)
- Deep Blue Metallic paint
- Panorama roof
- Black alcantara lining
- Black Next Generation seats
- Autopilot package
- Premium interior and lighting
- Air suspension
- Winter package
- Trunk seats
- Winter wheels
I live in a major city, and have yet to experience needing four wheel drive. I have driven front and rear wheel driven cars for years, and have no problems handling them on slippery roads. Norwegian roads are generally well salted, and where they are not, I drive slow enough that it's not going to be a problem. The four wheel drive is a solution to a problem that I do not have, but it creates a new one; lack of space. With two kids (one three months, the other three and a half years), we need to be able to pack as much as possible in the boot (egads how I hate the term "frunk"). The oldest one will be riding in the rear until she outgrows it - she already loves doing so in my inlaws' car.
That means that luggage for trips will have to go in the front, which is no problem. Add to that the fact that the four wheel drive would have added just north of US$4500 to the price, and I'm taking the savings and smiling all the way to the bank. Buying the car is tight, moneywise, but we can swing it with RWD only. AWD wasn't in the budget, nor in our needs.
What the actual frak? I just checked the spreadsheet, and once more I find my entry missing. Anyone with any insight on this?
