[Solved] Tesla's ordering model makes it impossible for me to order. Any advice? Hello After finally convincing my wife that a Model S is a great idea, actually getting one might be impossible. And no, this has nothing to do with the dealership issues in the US. Why then? The company I work for have an agreement with a leasing firm and a policy for us employees that we can lease a car and pay by gross salary deductions. Which makes is the only way I could afford a MS. Leasing cost would still be about $1200/month on the net salary. Anyway, I got my employer to agree to go above the usual limit for the price of the car and they have sent a signed order to the leasing company. The leasing company is still trying to decide what they should set the residual value to. I'm fine with anything between 25 and 50% so that won't be an issue. The only problems left are a two related to the payment. First, they are having trouble with the reservation fee. Since the leasing firm is just a subsidiary of one of Swedens largest banks they have to follow the banking rules and can't just pay money as they like. Since the fee is pretty small they hope they can solve it somehow. The big problem is that Tesla have apparently (at least the local rep) demanded full payment six weeks prior to delivery. This is where is becomes a big problem. Getting a bank to agree to pay $120000 to a company in another country in advance without any written guarantee or anything is most likely impossible. Normally business to business transactions is that a company orders something (legally binding in writing) and then get it together with an invoice. I find it strange that Tesla seems to be unwilling to do that kind of business? Or is it just the local rep that has it all wrong? Any advice on whom in Tesla I can contact about this? Either in the european or us organizations. Any other advice? Thanks!
