    K my MX is due for delivery in first week of December the wait is on.

    I'm obsessing something fierce at this point, what are the recommended time killers to get my fix until delivery?

    Order accessories and browse the forum and read as much as you can about the car. That's what I've been doing. Luckily I was going to order all weather mats for the car, but seems like the ap2 cars mat layout are a bit different so I'll have to wait on that.

    Thanks for the tip about the mats. I too am waiting for my X delivery, and in the meanwhile have been looking over what accessories we might need.

    In my case, I'm trying to sell my current car that the X is going to be replaced with. No interest as of yet.

    This forum have been very useful. Between browsing this forum and reading this manual, I don't need a delivery specialist to give me the run down on the car when I receive it. It's also because I don't have a delivery specialist to show me the car. Lol

    What car do you currently have?

    I'm currently just going to the Tesla store and test driving lol! Nothing else to do besides reading the forum lol I was going to order the all season floor mat but I'm thinking to save a little to do a Xpel protection or invest in something to protect the front end from damage but we will see...

    December? That's right around the corner! :) I have to wait until March for my X (Netherlands).

    What do I do in the meantime? Read TMC, watch Björn videos, Like Tesla videos, Tesla Family videos, read Musk biography, request a public charging spot in our neighborhood... and browse accessories that I can possibly already order. :cool:

    Don't know how people could wait more than 3 to 4 months. I'm itching like hell and I confirm order on 10/1

    Likewise, and I confirmed on 10/18! It doesn't help that the car this is replacing (2005 Prius) died on Sunday so I'm on a rental car until delivery...

    Out of curiosity did you sell or trade in your Prius? We are trying to figure out what to do with our 2011

    My situation is slightly unique.

    My initial plan was simply to go to Carmax and sell the car for whatever they were willing to give me. I simply don't have the time to entertain private offers. Also, I've heard Tesla doesn't offer as much as Carmax.

    Then it turns out that a family friend is looking for a used car. So I agreed to sell him the car for whatever amount Carmax would have bought it for.

    at least your car is expected the second week of December mines hasn't even gone into production nor can my DS confirm 100% that when I will even see it. I just hope I don't slip into 2017. I specifically asked for a early December delivery.....

    I have sold my wifes Acura CL type S through Car Max and I think they priced it pretty well. This was 10 years ago so I don't know if the practice is still the same but they offered pretty much a similar price as to what Kelly blue book would have sold it for on fair condition.

    Mines must be the oldest, I am replacing my 2003 Honda Civic SI. The car actually still runs but I am going to be driving the Tesla more. It was my bachelor car before I met my wife lol!. Now I have a daughter so comes the Model X.

    Tesla will actually match a CarMax quote, which allows you to save money on sales tax in most states over CarMax or a private sale.

    It sounds like you already have a plan, but maybe this will become helpful in the future.
