    I was just told by the sales manager at the Santa Barbara store that they won't have us login with our Tesla accounts. Corporate decided to change the process. They're just taking name, phone number, email address and payment. If you want your reservation linked to your Tesla account, just use the email address associated with the account.

    Thanks for that, I was wondering how that worked. Also, is this to make the process faster?

    Sure sounds like it. My only worry is that they can correctly read the email address if it's written.

    They directly entered the email address into a web form, no writing or signing required. I got a reservation email and then logged into my account and the III info was there :). Whole process took minutes.

    I imagine it's a web form identical to the Model X reservations page:

    Reserve your Model X | Tesla Motors

    Available on their corporate intranet now, and will be made public tomorrow evening.

    Yes already done. Actually 4 hours ago :). They took a drivers license, credit card, typed it into the computer and BAM! reserved. Got an email minutes later and logged in to see my reservation number.

    Likely from the store which you are reserving.

    RN100036XXX. Doesn't seem to be any sequence to these as they differed wildly between those of us first in the line. Guy behind me had RN100013XXX

    I checked in at my local Tesla store today for any last minute details, they said they are trying to keep it to two minutes per person. So it'll be a speedy process. One Tesla Store person said they are expecting 100 or so people. That is fine, as long as I am FIRST. I will be there very early.

    Got update email from Tesla that current owners can only order the same number of Model 3's to the number of Tesla's the owner currently owns, so a current Tesla owner can't order multiple Model 3's if they only own one Roadster, S or X. This sounds more fair for current non-owners to get there Model 3's sooner than having someone who owns one Tesla currently and ordering Model 3's for extended family and friends.

    Yep I have RN100026XXX friend has RN100043XXX. It says right below that it's based off the order date? So don't know how it's going to be when rolling out but i'm sure first day reservations will be well ahead of the rest of those who order online throughout the next 2 years while waiting.
