    As most of you can guess, We are very excited. We ordered a white S85, textile seats, obeche gloss, tech package, pano, parking sensors. Just happen to order the first day the parcel shelf was included. Delivery is late September. Using the advice of a very knowledgeable product specialist (Matt Stieg) at the Scottsdale, AZ gallery, we called and talked to an owner advisor (Kimi Lee) to place the order. She had a lot of good advice and the process was too easy.

    I did get on the wait list for the center console. The reply email says it should be delivered in December. ?????

    Looking forward to meeting other owners in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.

    This is my first post but my wife has posted for a year or so and I thank all you that have answered of our questions.

    And the wait begins.

    Congratulations!

    I've been on the CC wait list for 6 months or so and am no closer to getting a console, AFAIK. But it's a blessing in disguise, since when I bought the car I was sure I wanted one, but having lived with it now for several months I am pretty sure that I don't. The cupholder placement in the existing console is a minor annoyance (esp. when you have two cups), but I've grown fond of the big open space in between the seats and don't think I'd want to give that up. I thought lack of storage was going to be an issue, but it's not, really--the glove compartment and cubby underneath the nav hold everything I really want.

    I really, really like my empty console area to put stuff. I bought a small multi pocket tote bag for the small stuff that neatly fits under the cubby space.

    Congrats, and welcome to the club!

    Thanks all for the congrats. I think the center console will work for us. Too bad it will not be installed at delivery.

    Hey congratulations romac and TomWhiteside! I confirmed on the 24th and my estimated date is an even more vague "September". I ordered an S85, blue, textile/piano, pano, smart air, tech, parking, sound, subzero. I'm in Boston so the longer transport time may mean we all three get our cars at about the same time! I'm looking forward to hearing our delivery stories. :biggrin:

    Congrats Romac
    I finally confirmed my order on June 5 for delivery in Australia. The local DS is predicting August delivery which I think is way optimistic but as I reserved 2 years ago Tesla may have allocated some production slots to us in advance knowing that specs and pricing locally was to be finalised at the beginning of this month.
    It hasn't affected my sleep yet but I have a feeling that waiting for my car to cross the Pacific will be torture. :crying:

    You got it. I'll share when the happy day comes. Maybe someone can stake out the factory when we know it's about time to ship our cars and take a pic of them on the transport.

    Congrats to you too on you order. Interesting that your delivery is before mine as I confirmed on June 3. Maybe because you reserved 2 years ago?

    My sleep has been affected but now I get to read the forums at 2 in the morning.

    Best of luck to your new car in it's Pacific crossing.

    Just ordered mine too. Starting the two week waiting list just in case we change our mind on the color and maybe adding leather. Config right now is as follows:

    85kWh Model S
    Standard 19" wheels
    Black Textile Seats with Obeche Wood Matte Decor
    Blue Metallic Paint with Blue Roof
    Parking Sensors
    Parcel Shelf (thanks Tesla for now including this item)
    Parking Sensor
    Tech Package
    Subzero Weather Package

    Should I upgrade to full leather?

    I am taking delivery in a couple of weeks and ordered a similar configuration. No wood (Piano black) or Subzero (live in Tucson, AZ). Added Fog Lights (why not), Pano Roof (could not resist after test drive). I strongly considered the Textile seats, but went with leather just could not see a 90K care without leather. That being said, I see no downside with the Textile seats, they look nice and are exactly the same. I also considered dual chargers but living in Arizona and only driving to Nevada or California I figured I was set with the Super Chargers. Would have got upgraded sound for 1K to 1.5K but not 2.5K.

    I also confirmed June 1st and have a September deliver in Connecticut. Black S85 with pano roof, textile/piano, tech, parking & fog lights.

    Confirmed at 10pm June 1st so missed out on parcel shelf by 2 hours.

    Figure it will be by end of September to meet quarterly close figures.

    I was going to go with Blue, but when I test drove the Model S they had a Blue and Black side by side and I could not tell the difference.

    Seems like the wait is 1-2 months longer than before. The wait is long, but it gives you time to plan for the car and learn it some more here on TMC! Grats!

    @LucM - My car went into production yesterday, so I am two or so weeks out from delivery since I am in Tennessee. What is amazing about the purchasing process for buying a Tesla is that people get the car the way that they want it and not the way that some dealership sales manager thinks will sell the quickest or can bring the highest profit. Believe me, I anguished over my configuration just the same way as you did. It took me about a month to conclude that if you are purchasing a Tesla, then you had a reason for outfitting it the way that you did. When I did that, I stopped worrying about it. The only bad decision that can be made is not buying a Model S if you can afford it.
