    Does anyone know how the reservation numbers work? Mine is "Model 3 Order Number RN1078XXXXX". There must be some rhyme or reason but it would be interesting to know the details. Thanks

    Do not share your RN publicly, this is a security issue and someone could steal your reservation. I suggest you remove it right away!

    I agree with SureValla. Remove it

    What we dont know is when we will get a number that lets us know what space we are in the Q. Its a complicated thing that Tesla has not formall acknowledged how it exactly will do it. We do know employees get first run, existing Tesla owners next, then in store reservation holders, then online. Then to trump all of that they say the more options you purchase the higher in the Q as well. Nobody know how much of a push this will be and if it will trump all others who stood in line, but have tons of cash to burn, but did a online order.

    Its a complete mystery still! You will probably have to wait till "reveal Part 2" in order for us to find out more.

    No rhyme or reason. Reservation numbers have always been basically random.

    Tesla randomize it so the analyst won't be able to publish reservation count.

    Mods, is it possible to configure the forum with a regular expression (e.g., /RN[0-9]{9}/) that would block out reservation numbers similar to a bad word filter?

    Looks like someone was on the lookout for me and marked out my res number.

    Could someone explain to me a reasonable scenario in which a forum member posts their Res # then someone steals it? How could a Res be stolen by just knowing he number?

    And it's also been stated that they are going to do location based batches, so who knows how that plays in to the mix.

    With regards to the order, I personally don't want to be one of the first 10-20K just in case there's an unforeseen hiccup or defect. I figure since Tesla is constantly improving, that models after a small buffer will be of better quality right off the line.

    I do. If it turns out you are in the first 20K and I'm not, I would be happy to trade places.;)

    I have 2 reservations for the Model 3 and was told by my DS that only 1 would receive priority for current Model S owners.
