Pulled the trigger on a new 70D!

Just another victim here of having his new Lexus ruined by a Tesla test drive :smile: I pulled the trigger on a new 70D, order confirmed 9/26, and has been showing as "in production queue..." since then, VIN #1097xx. Nothing too fancy as I was trying to keep the costs down, only add-ons I selected were the glass pano roof and autopilot. Everything else, I just opted for the cheapest/standard options (19" wheels, textile seats, etc.)

Just several months ago (mid-June) I had signed the papers on a brand new Lexus IS 350, pretty decently loaded up, including the F-Sport package. Test drove the 70D on 9/12 and knew I had to get out of my Lexus. Kind of expensive and lost some money on the negative equity, but figured it was well worth it given the savings I'd have in the long run. My major regret? I really wish I had looked into the Tesla before the Lexus. I have a long commute to work every day and spend close to $5k a year on gas. Bundle that with the tax incentives, and the effective cost of the Model S made even more sense than the Lexus, despite the Tesla's almost $30k higher price tag.

Now, the wait. My Tesla accounts currently shows estimated delivery late October - November. My delivery specialist tells me current estimated pickup should be late October. I'm hoping it's the latter, or possibly even sooner!

rcarpen22 - I went with the standard black. Black seems to be pretty common. Most of the time I see a Tesla, it's either white or black, both of which I thought looked amazing!
