    Best of luck! It seems Tesla have a habit of doing things last minute.

    Also firmware is on 2019.28.3.1, which is 3 releases behind the latest which is 2019.32.2.1 according to Teslafi.

    One of the sale persons told me there will be a price rise this week, which prompted me to put a deposit down. I had originally wanted to get a 2020 built car, so was going to order in December. The order page stated that deposit is fully refundable, does anyone know when not becomes not refundable?
    And I had already got the generic text today, I placed the deposit last night.

    So is there a way to force a firmware update, or you just have to cross fingers and wait?

    I think you just have to wait.

    Good move, because if you ordered in December you’d be just as likely to get a November or December build car.

    Step 1, make sure it’s connected to Wifi
    Step 2, Set updates to advanced on the centre screen.
    Step 3, Pray.
    You can also try a reboot. o_O

    It is stated in the manual the cable length for the wall connector is 2.6 m and 7.4m. Do we get a choice which one we want? All Tesla models have the charge port on the left side of the car? Just trying to work out where to install the wall charger in the garage in case we end up with two Tesla down the track.

    Is that just holding both scroll wheels in until it reboots the screen?

    According to your order agreement:
    Until your Vehicle is registered in your name, you may cancel your order at any time, in which case you will receive a full refund of your Order Payment.

    The 10a tail charges at 8a (which is what we're using while we wait for the sparky). I would guess that 12a is the deemed safe load for the 15a tail -- have a look at the fine print on the plug? (Yeah, it's quite small).

    Make sure your car is connected to WiFi. Maybe a better way is sit outside a Tesla service centre and connect to their Wi-Fi. If there is an update to be had, that will usually download it.
