I'm coming from probably one of the slowest cars on the road to one of the quickest, pressing "go" isn't going to get boring quickly....
Enjoy your car Marc. I’m hoping to join you next week unless I get bumped!
Back in 1983 my first brand new car was a Citroen 2CV - 598cc two cylinder - 0-60 if you were lucky :D
 
Okay, so here's mine from Tuesday:

First is my car in the handover centre, taken moments after I set my eyes upon it for the very first time. <3

Second is my car out in the wild. I know it was badly parked, but I was in a hurry to jump out and take my first proper photo of it:) BTW, I've now seen three Model 3s parked in the local streets, so I can dispel any illusions of being special.

Third is my car squeezed into my garage and charging. Doesn't look it on the photo, but when I say squeezed I really mean squeezed - 15cm either side of the doorway with mirrors folded, and 9cm front and back with the garage door closed. Standard UK sized garage though (way too small to fit a Model S). Hope to experiment with the summon when I summon up the courage. For now I'm just relieved it definitely fits. And I know the garage looks a bit shabby, despite costing way more than the car, but I haven't got around to getting it painted yet (the 2 year saga to get electricity installed kind of drained my enthusiasm for it a bit).

Yeah, it's the SR+ with no extras, black interior.

I'm really happy with it, handover was pretty much "Here are the cards, pair the app and go!".

I got the type 2 cable in the boot.

Congrats!

How long is the type 2 cable?
 
Mine is 4m, which is alas 1m too short. I did ask them to change it but they said 4m was standard (I was always intending to buy a longer one anyway as I can't always park right outside my house).

Thanks, that's really useful. I live on the wrong side of a semi detached house for the charging port so sounds like I will need to buy a longer one. I can't believe how expensive they are!

How is the SR+ Model? I see everyone raving about the P and i tried to work out the sums but i cannot justify it.
My SR+ should be here 27 Aug - be great to know your experience with it?

Here is mine. Now has PPF on front half and Ceramic coating on the rest.

Looks great. I went between blue and red for a while before selecting red, even if my usual preference would lead me to blue. Yours looks fabulous.

When you say PPF on the front half, what exact areas do you have the PPF applied to? I was discussing this with a pro detailer today and he was recommending PPF on the front bumper area as a priority as there is no grill and that’s where stone chips tend to occur, with ceramic coating elsewhere. Similar to your solution I think.

Here’s my SR+.

Since yesterday I’ve had a neighbour ride his bicycle into a hedge and person at my golf club accidentally allowing his electric golf trolley to run into the back his own car whilst looking so safe to say it’s quite intriguing for some people. :D

I think it’s a ‘hang on a minute that’s not an S’ kind of realisation.
