    I confirmed on Feb. 22 and have been watching for an estimated date of completion. So far, all I saw was "Preferred Delivery Date: April." Now, my dashboard doesn't have any dates on it, preferred, projected, etc. Is this standard? Does it mean anything?

    I would look for an email today from your DS giving you firmer delivery date options. That's just my guess. I don't know if my estimate disappeared before the email or not, but the timeframe seems right.

    Mine is gone as well. We will likely be on the same truck. We will probably hear from our DS this week.

    happened to me too, although shortly after I set an initial date with my DS. A few days later, the date I set with my DS reappeared on the website.

    Happened to me too but I'm not getting my hopes up, could just be a modification to their process. On the other hand, I am going to reconfirm with my electrician :wink:

    When I saw that disappear from my dashboard, I had an email from my delivery specialist in my inbox the next morning to schdule a final delivery date. Keep an eye out!

    Mine also disappeared today. My tentatively scheduled delivery date was 26 March.

    my status is still "sourcing parts".

    My DS is thinking 4/18 or later for my delivery. Maybe the delivery option goes away after getting put in the build queue.

    I think you have followed a similar path as me. Going to make Model X deposit, decided to look at inventory S, and ended up buying an S but I think you must have confirmed a week or two before me.

    My date has disappeared as well. It is my understanding when they disappear and a VIN is introduced that the car is beginning assembly. Yet, I still have sourcing parts (theoretically possible even while building). I haven't been contacted by my DS as of yet though. I confirmed on 2/14 with an April delivery. Wondering why some have been contacted and others have not. I have heard that the Watertown service center is extremely busy which may be the reason. Am I correct in assuming that the DS is local to the area (or pickup location)?

    Just affirming that it is indeed normal. Once preferred month is gone, you can't change on your own. If some one wants to change, he can still make a call and depending on where he is, it can still be changed. Bear in mind that for US deliveries car goes in production around 2 weeks before the date so you can make changes until then. HTH and congrats!!!! Amit

    @MassX1317,
    VIN 35564, delivery date of 4/14. Hope they're on track. More then likely will be picking up on 4/14 if ready. Anyone else on 4/14?

    I was going to post something about my preferred date but I'll post it here instead. I ordered and confirmed my S85 on the 6th of March and the preferred delivery date of Late March. What are the odds of that actually happening when the configure site says 2-3 months? Would I most likely get mine late March or in around May. Which is within the 2-3 month range?
