    Ordered a S90D on Saturday and got an email from my DS (who apparently immediately left until next Monday after sending it), so I can't ask her.

    I was able to change my preferred delivery time until August by calling California, but I have a few questions for people who have been through the Texas dance.

    As I understand the process, I pay the final invoice, they send me some California paperwork (I presume by FEDEX), I send it back (notarized?), they ship,in my case, to Austin, they do the state inspection, I take delivery, I go get Texas Tags.

    How long does the paperwork dance take and how far in advance to my desired delivery? I have a 10 day desired delivery time frame in mid August where I can take delivery between two out of state trips.

    How does the trade in process work in Texas with having to pay off the invoice before an unstated delivery date?

    I took delivery in Houston on March 26th. I sent final payment on March 15th, and I believe I received the paperwork for signature via Fedex around March 21st. No need to have this notarized. I cannot remember exactly when I got the final California paperwork back, but it was after delivery. You have 30 days from delivery to get your Texas tags, and I received mine in plenty of time to do that.

    I did not do a trade-in with Tesla, so can't comment on that. Tesla sent someone out to do an appraisal of the car to make their offer, but Carmax offered me $1500 more than Tesla which exceeded the sales tax savings.
