    Sorry if this seems a little spammy. I've been having a little bit of trouble controlling my TAD these last few hours. I will be picking up my Tesla in Fremont tomorrow, and this is truly one of the most exciting moments of my life thus far (in the car world).

    One thing I can be sure of: sleep is a thing I will not be experiencing tonight, for obvious reasons.

    What are your pickup/delivery stories? How did you control your TAD? OH GOD SO EXCITED

    i kept reading and reading these forums. nothing you can do to about the excitement. eventually, your brain will tire and you fall asleep...only to wake up in 30 minutes.

    You need not apologize. Many of us have been there. We know exactly what you are feeling. You won't be able to control the grin.

    Hit it right on the nose. I did get some sleep, but not enough to amount to anything... Bleh, sleep is overrated.

    Wheelie, have fun!! If you have the time, try a couple of things:

    - not sure what vehicles you are coming from, but, you may want to use the massive parking lot at the factory to get used to the size and dimensions of the car by driving around and parking there.

    - don't forget to Supercharge for the first time right there at the Superchargers next to the delivery center. Your car should be delivered at or around 90% charge already but, it'd be good to make sure that the Supercharging works. You may not see a Supercharger again for some time unless you have a roadtrip planned already:

    - give the public J1772 charging a go too (you can thus make sure that your J1772 adapter works). If you haven't gotten a Chargepoint card already, sign up for an account online and install their mobile app (you can start charging online without a card). The nearest Chargepoint stations to the factory are in the Target parking lot in the Pacific Commons shopping center off the Auto Mall Pkwy exit. You are also welcome to stop by our office charging stations - no Chargepoint-like authentication necessary - at 207 Redwood Shores Pkwy not far from Belmont; charging there briefly on weekends is not a problem.

    - be sure to apply for the CA CVRP $2.5k rebate ASAP. The funds are practically gone.

    - lastly, make sure you have the $5 for the toll to cross the Dumbarton or the San Mateo bridge to get back home ;)

    As totally cool as today will be for you, rest assured, it just keeps getting better. This car grows on you; the more you drive it far and wide, the more you will come to love it!

    ^^^^ What Vger said. Now that the sleep problem is over, your mind will turn to finding excu... reasons to go pick up stuff or whatever. If you're in a relationship, it requires significant creativity!! :)

    I don't even have to ask if you are excited. After the emphasis on "tomorrow" and everything following that exemplifies it quite well.

    Enjoy it and stay safe. :)

    She is a beauty. Still needs a name, though I'm letting the family decide on that. ;)

    The factory tour was amazing, and the staff who helped with orientation were superbly helpful. I love this car. And now the Tesla Anticipation Disorder manifests into a version where you anticipate to drive it every day. God I love this thing. :D:D:D
