    If you have any salary income at all, you can get it pretty quickly by lowering your federal withholdings for as many checks as it takes. If you're buying a Model S, it shouldn't be more than 3 checks...

    I just gave it a try.

    I already configured my Model S, but it detects my reservation is EU, so I don't get any pricing or delivery dates shown.

    Mine is ready however, so they can lock me in and ship it in three weeks, I don't see the problem?

    Actually, ElSupreme, I see your res number is pretty high. So you should just start non-withholding of your federal income tax at your first paycheck for January 2013. Just remember to start withholding again when you hit what would have been $7500 in withholding (or if your first check withholding would have been more than $7500, withhold the difference). I don't know what you can do with state taxes in GA, but I would think you might be able to do the same thing. Also make sure you don't spend the extra money in your paycheck! Put it aside.

    Also, I am not an accountant!

    Is the 8 year, unlimited miles warranty on the 85KWH battery pack a change? I thought it was lifetime.

    Hi Trnsl8r

    You're right, there is a bug where previously saved designs have a base price that includes the Federal tax credit. We are fixing it this afternoon. Good eyes!

    No change there. Wishful thinking on part of Sig folks, I think.

    That's a good thought. I believe they set up a place for the manufacturer of the seats at the factory so that could make sense that they only had limited resources to build the types of seats they are offering.

    White leather interior will be used after the first 1000 signatures were be delivered to U.S. customers. There are signature editions for Canada, EU, Asia/UK, Australia, and so on. So I don't think the grey leather will replace white.

    That's a good point. Even if gray doesn't replace white, it's still the new color and it makes sense that they wouldn't get that ready right away.

    I'm presuming that just because the picture of the HPWC is white in the design studio, doesn't mean that the one you get is white. I've been led to understand that it can come in whatever color matches available exterior colors.

    Was really hoping that standard suspension was available from the beginning. If by some miracle I'm called to make a decision on getting the car earlier with air suspension or waiting for the standard spring suspension, I'd jump on getting the car earlier. :sigh: I think Tesla knows what it's doing there. I wonder if Tesla's suspension decision is also to make the manufacturing process simpler in the beginning

    It may be a contractual obligation to Continental that they have to sell x amount of units per year. It's the only optional component they seem to be forcing year 1. They note it's a "requirement" and if it was a manufacturing limitation like the grey leather I would think that it would be available sometime this year not Jan 2013.

    Let's get one thing correct before doing two things is always a good plan.

    "My Garage" is empty. Wonder if there are more updates or just bugs in the system....

    With the new updates - a lot of folks have had to clear their cache Nigel; give that a try and likely your garage will come back.

    A couple of refreshes did the trick too for me in Chrome.

    Just tried mine and the car was still there. It's really bad luck when your car is stolen before you even take delivery.:scared:
