    The Construction Supervisor at the site told me that they are shooting for a "September completion", but he said that the schedule depended on Tesla delivering various service machines, etc, on time.

    I’m hearing similar also.

    There’s a cat cafe across the street. Good place to waste some time while you wait.

    Been going by about weekly, it's on our way to Trader Joe's!

    They are painting inside and completing installation of lighting and HVAC. Big news is there is now a TESLA sign over the Entrance doors.

    Painless drop off this morning at the Oceanside location. I was in and out in about 10 minutes with an S loaner. Enterprise said once they move they plan to expand the loaner fleet.

    Per the staff, the move to Carlsbad will be done by the end of the month. They have already started to move equipment and some of the lifts.

    Stopped by this morning to get some pics. Talked to the Construction Superintendent briefly: he confirmed that his completion date was the 30th and that he expected the move-in date for the Tesla crew would be September 30 with opening on 1 October ("if everything goes right"). They've installed four regular lifts, and one lift that appears to be a heavy duty model. The new car showroom is ready for flooring and install of display shelves etc. Looks like it could hold at least four cars.

    Thanks for the pics. For anyone in the area, Since Oceanside shipped their lifts to the new location, the Oceanside SC is now unable to do any work that would require using a lift (like replacing tires for example). They also have inventory cross polinated in both places (like wheels). I know this because I hit a pothole a few days ago that damaged 2 rims, and went to oceanside to see if they could help me. They were super nice like always but were unable to do anything for me other than take the wheel off and verify that I had indeed damaged the rim (and put a 19 inch loaner wheel on my model 3p).

    Stopped by again Friday morning - LOTS of activity! They're going to have to work through the weekend to have any reasonable chance of opening on Monday. Pics follow:

    Dropped by for a look about noon on Monday, 30 Sept. Not yet open, Service Area still a big mess. Now has 14 Tesla Chargers around the parking lot. Loaner fleet of 15 Model S's now parked in lot on west side of building. Large posters mounted in showroom. Open hours signs indicate that this site will also be a Delivery Center.

    OK - one more driveby...Lots of cleanup activity in the Service Area - truckload of trash. Several Teslas in service area, probably brought down from the Temp Service Center in Oceanside; a couple of dusty X's outside, one with service "hat" on. Four new Teslas in front - two S's and two 3's. Assume they'll clean them up and put them in the showroom.

    Service guys were setting up their "Greeter" station - say that they are all moved out of the O'Side Center and will open for business tomorrow (Wednesday) in Carlsbad.

    LAST Recon Report:

    The Service Center is open...and busy. Still moving equipment, spares, etc. into place. Spacious waiting room for service customers. The new car showroom has an S and a 3 on the floor, but is not "officially" open - maybe next week.

    Opened just in time for me. Someone backed into my model S this weekend (yay!) and it would be nice to take it here.

    I had a schedule appointment and took my 3 to this location yesterday for a random rattle I had in my passenger door. Service advisors were waiting in front to check in for appt. quickly had a “road tech” to the front to go for a ride with me and hear the rattle. Tech took the car to service bay when I returned from road tech drive and they had me fixed and out the door in less than 30 min. Coffee, WiFi, water, etc. on hand in waiting area. Everyone I encountered while there was very helpful and friendly. Awesome service center experience!
