    I live close to the factory, reserved on day one and have been an S owner for years. No invite yet. Just saying :)

    I am so disappointed on your behalf. If they’re screwing up this badly this soon, I can’t imagine what it’ll be like when they open the floodgates.

    The guy above who got the strange invite is in LA. I figured the second invite to somebody with one Tesla was probably just an easy mistake, but I’ve no explanation for a day 2 reserver getting his invite.

    Also at least one confirmed case of someone who doesn’t even own an S or X anymore getting an invite.

    I'm hoping to be the first confirmed case of a non-owner, non-line waiter,non-day one, non-California invite. Every once in a while the error should be in my favor, right?

    Sounds like a screw-up in your favor -- you likely got the reservation for whomever previously owned your car. Certainly an anomaly.

    Ok, now that's just f'd up. I reserved before you, have 2012 Model S, and live closer. >.< (grats btw, not blaming you!)

    I think I should be getting invite a little after gg_got_a_tesla gets an invite, if it is going in reservation order and nearness to the factory.

    Perhaps Tesla will be focusing on delivering a significant number of vehicles to the new Los Angeles distribution center over an unfinished Fremont delivery center.

    I'm an owner of an S. No invite yet, but I only did my reservation at the reveal event, so way later then the majority. I'm not in a rush. My S runs fine, I actually don't want an early model.

    So your AWD date of Spring 18 is considerably less time than our August/October time frame. We're Calif, current owners (since March) so the difference factor has to be the time you placed your order (as it should be IMO). But the Spring 18 date is interesting all the same.

    What's interesting is that the Spring 18 estimate is from the order page under the defer option. When I go back to the delivery estimator, it shows Aug/Oct like yours.

    I've had a model S for five years, reserved day 1 in the afternoon once the line had cleared, sometime around 3-4pm. Bay Area. Still nothing. Now I'm hearing that someone in LA ordered online hours after me is now apparently ahead of me? Pretty annoying, but I'm sure I'll be in the next wave or two.

    Something I noticed today: I worried maybe my invite could end up in my spam folder so I checked my account at tesla.com, and noticed my "manage" button next to my model 3 reservation turned from red to grey? Anyone else seen this, or am I crazy?

    10:17 am today 12/08/17. Also I know someone else in LA same age model S that got email today. Not sure it has to do with delivery center in Marina Del Rey as the other invite was to a person very far away from Marina Del Rey, but Los Angeles area. We both have early model S. Theirs 2012, mine Feb2013 model S

    You are the first to "violate" the ownership clause, I think. In any case, congrats!
