    you are clearly not doing it right. The rule is to be checking at least 5 times per hour (like the rest of us neurotics). :rolleyes:

    I'm a non-owner and received my invite yesterday! I placed my order on 3/31/16 at about 9:00 am (approximately 75-100th in line) in Burlingame, CA! I reserved 2 model 3's, and got my invites yesterday to configure both of them! So happy!!!

    So has anyone heard any news? I know it's only been a week and a half, but if the 3-6 week estimate is correct we could be half way thru waiting and I have yet to hear anything from the big T.

    I assume if anyone had gotten a VIN they would have posted here, but perhaps it got posted elsewhere and so I missed it. Just looking for news.

    I've seen at least one report of a non-owner that configured on 2/22 receiving a VIN over the weekend. I believe there are at least 3 non-owners from the 2/22 batch reporting VINs on the invite spreadsheet. Nothing on my end yet. Hoping for a VIN sometime this week. At least my loan has been approved already. Crossing my fingers that I won't end up being one of those that waits 4+ weeks for a VIN. I'll be going overseas at the end of April so it would be great to take delivery before my vacation.

    Interested to know what times invites usually go out on a Wednesday. Anyone know?
    Also are people expecting them to return to in-store reservations again? Seems crazy that they would continue with online orders, but that seemed strange to me anyway!

    I had one of the tickets they were handing out to keep the line orderly in the beginning, but I am just going off memory now dont have the ticket anymore.

    I checked at 10:23 PST on 2/22 and was able to configure. It was opened up sometime between 9:30 and 10:23 PST.

    California line-waiter near the factory... Still no invite to configure... Sigh...

    I really thought I would have the car by now. The waiting has gone beyond frustrating and now I am just torpid. I walk around the neighborhood staring at Model 3s on the street in a daze. What happened?

    I ponder who owns them... employees? friends/family of employees? previous owners? friends/family of previous owners? people who bought an owner reservation from ebay? Online reservers who somehow jumped the queue?

    Yeah my hope was to give the model 3 to my wife for our anniversary last November since that was within my delivery window (line waiter in AZ). Then maybe Christmas. Valentines day? Welp! :p But it's given me more time to prep financially and continue to debate the color, so glass half full I guess.:)

    Change your address to be in San Diego? Find someone in SD that might be willing to sell their reservation? Otherwise, I feel for you, and think the way they sent out these last invites to be quite odd.

    I also think that since I'm not configuring either of my reservations just yet, that I'll end up having to wait an inordinate amount of time when I finally decide to.

    I guess I’m in this thread now. Aside from my house I’ve never spent this kind of money in my life.
