UPDATE: The SC called and scheduled delivery for 9/14/18. So roughly 2 months from order to delivery for me.

I was at the mall this evening and decided to stop by the Tesla showroom... And low and behold I have a VIN and the vehicle is in Oakland waiting to be shipped to Honolulu.

My Tesla account doesn't show a VIN. The only change recently is it says "Prepare for delivery" under the image of the vehicle.

Ordered: 7/13
Modified order: 7/17
In transit: 8/27

I was told expect a call in roughly two weeks to arrange pick up.

did you see them emblem was missing at delivery? What did they say?

It is missing at home delivery..they will replace right away.

Do you have the Vin?

No VIN

Guessing they are delivering P100D quicker than LR.

YES, only older version...


BUT - I have to admit, guys, I was just joking around and wishing my Raven LR X is here.

The ones I posted are diecast 1:18 scale model from the Tesla online store.

Have a great 3 day weekend!
I hope our X come true soon.

How are you able to pick up in LV and register in Washington?

Anybody can pick up from a different state and register at state of residence.

But why, you might ask.

Because one can be exempt from sales tax if a military member (Washington State resident), while stationed outside Wa buys a vehicle out of Wa State - which is about $7K for a $90K Model X

Interesting. So you can pick up in CA, but have to pay CA sales tax. When I picked up my X last year, it was in NJ and I shipped it to CA since NJ has no sales tax for EV vehicles. Wonder if I can pick up in NV and reg in NJ.

Yup, I am NOT picking up or registering in CA. Tesla will register in NJ if you have an address there. They reassured me, they do registration other than the delivery state - all the time, when I called to explain what I want to do.

I have bought an SUV in TX (2015), a car in NV (2018) - exempt from sales tax, and registered in WA.
