    Is it normal procedure to ask for an online payment for your car? I don't know what I expected, But there is so much paperwork when you buy an ICE car. Got an email to go to my tesla page and pay the invoice. WOW. I'm taking home delivery.

    Yes, this is normal procedure. We paid the remaining balance using an electronic check from our bank.

    I write very few paper checks these days but for the car I just had to write one so I could make a high resolution scan to then print and frame. :) FedEx'd the check to Freemont.

    BTW, regarding home delivery, I was offered that but decided to go with delivery at the local Tesla store as the folks there were more knowledgable about the vehicle than the truck driver dropping off cars along his route would have been.

    I used my local bank which financed me 100% of the value including the sales tax and took care of everything for me and it took me 5 minutes to sign the loan papers and it was all done.

    All normal. I don't believe they will put it on a truck for home delivery until funds have cleared for payment (at least that was my experience back in 2013 when I did home delivery).

    I paid with a regular personal check. Didn't need an e-check or cashiers check or anything.

    It ruled

    There is very minimal paperwork at delivery, takes about 5-10 minutes tops!

    You got enhanced AP? IIRC we preserved MS P100D at same time and were on the delivery thread. I didn't get new AP (not even close) and just missed on rear cup holder / charging ports.
