Tesla "Barclays/Lloyds" PCP Finance Question....


Just curious about how the finance works with the delivery etc.... Am I correct in my assumptions below:
  1. Design car in studio
  2. Apply for finance through site " let's assume approved"
  3. You place your order via studio, pay the £4k fee
  4. Wait for delivery confirmation
Once approved for the lease, am I correct in thinking it basically sits there like a guarantee until the car is ready, then prior to vehicle collection you pay whats left of your deposit and the finance kicks in when you get the vehicle and then I guess my next question is lets say I order today and defer delivery till August I'm guessing that would cause an issue with the PCP if it was basically 6 months from approval?

totally irrelevant but drove mine today for first time on proper snowy roads.
Complete pussycat even in fairly tricky conditions.

quite boring really as I was expecting it to be a 700hp nerve racking thrill ride, but actually was safe as you like.

Damn these cars are good.

Hopefully all the salt n crud will be gone by the time you folks get yours.
