    I was told I would get my VIN as soon as the car was done. Got the VIN Sunday. Pickup this afternoon!
    I am 67xxx
    AWD Aeros

    The vins must be scattered.

    I am thinking of buying the sports wheels later. I do hate that they are only selling it currently with Winter tires only. Is there a way to buy them with All Season Tires?

    Are they just randomly skipping big chunks of VINs? we know they're not making more than max 20,000 model 3s a month, and yet there's August builds in the 60k range all the way up to about 100k now apparently?

    I believe there's some logic in the VIN's (i.e. a block of numbers are AWD and another block are RWD) and they request a batch of several weeks production all at once, hence they are not necessarily rolling cars off the line and assigning VIN's in purely sequential order.

    This is why I'm not interested in the 20" sport wheels. They come only with summer tires with no option for all season or no tires. Can't imagine picking up the car in November or December with the 20" wheels installed and having to drive it across the Sierra to get it home on Summer tires. All season tires work just fine for me.

    Tesla does not build or deliver cars in VIN order. There is no way to know if VIN XXXXXXXXXX100000 is being delivered today, or tomorrow, or next week.
