    I have a Model 3 reservation from October as a non-owner, not due for delivery until late 2018/early 2019. In the interim, I've just ordered a Model S. Does anyone know if/when/how becoming an owner will affect my M3 reservation? Will it change, and if so, automatically?

    Most certainly.

    I was told that - based on my TM3 reservation status - that I should i expect to receive an invitation to configure my 3 days after becoming and owner.

    I am non-owner and preordered on 4/1 and am scheduled to take deliver of my MS on Wednesday.

    I waited in line on 3/31 in socal to reserve the model 3 and still waiting for my configurator to open up. I have purchased a model x and scheduled for delivery this Sunday! I believe you must have already taken delivery before owner priority kicks in, configuring and ordering the Model S/X online is not enough.

    Come back and let us know if/when you get the invite to configure your M3! I'm curious to see if this is true as well.

    Well I picked up my model S today and also put in a reservation for a model 3. We will see if owner priority is still a thing.

    I ordered two model 3s on 3/31/16. I am picking up my model S next week. Hopefully I'll receive an invitation to configure my Model 3 soon after.

    Im and owner and got the old MCU :mad:, first day reservation, for just about a week. no word this morning. I talked to Tesla last night.

    I can see the california owners getting called ASAP before month end. "sure come on down and pick one off the lot and we will clean it up for you." who would have ever thought that from Tesla.

    Ordered Model 3 on 4/13/17. After reading loads of Model 3 reviews during the autumn of 2017, decided on Model S.

    Placed my Model S order mid-Jan. Collected Model S on 3/23/18. Kept the Model 3 order as the wife now wants it.

    No invite to configure yet, although I login to check on the progress every day.

    Out of curiosity, has anyone gone from owner to non-owner and lost their priority? Planning on trading in the S when we take delivery of our first 3 and wonder if the second reservation will still have priority.
