    Hello,

    Just thought I would take a few moments on this cloudy Saturday to introduce myself... I have just ordered my Tesla S (gray, 85, black interior, tech, upgraded sound system) and I am impatiently awaiting my VIN and ANY news from Tesla :eek:... As my profile states I am from Palm Beach County and work for NextEra Energy (FPL parent co.).

    I'm actually an IT manager that have key responsibility for Infrastructure and Hardware deployments for Wind and Solar projects around the US and Canada. So, while feeling good about my Jobs carbon impact, I've decided to walk the walk and address it at home as well... At least that is what I am telling myself to justify the costs :biggrin:.

    One quick question, I noticed why many have there Tesla particulars noted at the bottom of the thread but, I'm not sure what field to use to set this up. Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Again happy to be here and look forward to chatting.

    Welcome, FlaSteve! You're at the start of a very satisfying journey...

    Find the Settings tab at the top right of any page; then click on Edit Signature in the left panel of your Settings page.

    Welcome, welcome, FlaSteve!! Especially because you ordered the best colour!! :)

    Re the sig, I had to ask the same question when I joined. You'll have to post 5 posts before the option for signature will show up.

    And good for you re your job, and walking the talk personally. The buy-in price is ridiculous compared to what most people have bought before according to many posts I've read, me included, and the "justification" has often been a bit of a struggle. I'm not saying Tesla's price is ridiculous, just that the most that most of us have spent on a car before was $20-30k. So it's a big jump. But ***SO*** worth it overall. I guarantee* it.

    * not like a taillight guarantee, guaranteed as long as you can see my taillights, but more a statement of probabilities :cool:

    Fun fact: 7% of FL owners who are members of the Florida Tesla Enthusiasts group are named Steve. And yes, I did the actual math!

    Congrats from another Steve. I think we need to have a Tesla "Steve" ownership meeting. We will invite others with inferior names (even Chris, I.e. Btrflyl8e), but we get first crack at the superchargers.

    I've had my P85 for almost 8 months, but still remember the torment of the two month wait I had for delivery. I still can't even imagine how the early adopters waited so long to get the car.

    You're gonna love the car....

    Steve,

    From one new comer to another - welcome to the community. And just think, whenever you feel the urge to head up north, there's a supercharger network ready and waiting. Let us know how long the Tesla grin lasts after you get your car.

    Welcome to the waiting club, Steve. I deliberately delayed mine until July and of course the wait is excruciating.

    @bobinfla - I'm in Land O Lakes too. Just like the buttah!
