    FYI - If you're waiting for a delivery in Richmond, VA - all non-employee Model 3 deliveries are on hold at this location. If you want your car sooner change delivery to another location like Tyson's corner...

    Any reason given for why this particular location is on hold?

    Unfortunately no, but since it's a relatively new location I think we can assume it's training or equipment related.

    After a lot of pushing, my inside delivery guy in Vegas finally went up the chain to ask and confirmed today. I requested delivery location change today as well and a few hours later, I have a VIN after waiting over 3 weeks for one...

    Congratulations and glad they were able to change pickup location... hopefully, it's not too far out of the way for you.

    At the legislative event last evening, I was told that the Richmond location was certified for Model 3 deliveries that day and deliveries can begin there around the 19th or so. That is around when new vehicles being assigned VINs would be able to arrive in Tyson’s so probably no need to get assigned to Tyson’s anymore.

    Thanks!

    I'm being told my delivery to Tyson's around 2/11 - not sure I want to "risk" switching back now... they might charge me $500 to do so too...

    Nope. But I’ll have mine on 2/18 and it’s for sale. List price. White. All options except Full Autonomy. $59500.

    To clarify, apparently VIN matching starts for Richmond deliveries around the 19th, not that deliveries themselves start at that time.

    Now I have to decide on PPF or nanosealants or whatever... I'm not sure I'm going to spring for XPEL again.

    Awesome. I dropped by the Glen Allen location on Friday and apparently the first shipment is arriving Tuesday or Wednesday, much earlier than my DS indicated. Mine should be in that batch.
