    In appreciation for all of the information and passion shared in this community. Thanks gang.. happy to be part of the family tomorrow.


    ‘Twas the night before delivery and despite my best attempt
    I couldn’t sleep a wink, not even with Ambien.

    The NEMA outlet had just been installed in the garage with care
    knowing that our new S90D would soon be there.

    There was nothing left to read, I’d consumed every thread
    while images of instant acceleration and zero emissions danced through my head.

    Would I get the center console, what about the new wheels?
    Or maybe they’ll do a complete refresh next month!!? I hate how this feels…

    When suddenly I leapt out of bed wrought with panic and fright….
    My proof of insurance… I forgot to upload it to the site!!

    Dash to the computer, and upload I did.
    Narrowly missing that disastrous scenario… “We can’t give you the car today, sorry kid…”

    Back to bed I went, my restless night finally came to pass
    Well rested for the Tesla factory tour, my new baby and a future sans gas.

    Actually tomorrow is my day as well... Just had to find an outlet for my energy this morning. I'm picking up at 11 in Fremont. See you there?

    I wish. I'm in FL - picking up in Tampa. I hear you should do the factory tour if you're taking delivery. I considered flying out to take delivery and getting the tour, but didn't think it was worth the extra 2k miles on the car to drive it home!

    Have an awesome day tomorrow!

    Also loved it.
    I pick up in 1 week at Eden Prairie, MN (March 31, Model 3 deposit day... should be a fun day at the SC) and I'm feeling every word.

    Hope you are enjoying your car now, and saw the amazing factory. I can't wait to go back since they re-tooled it for Model X and then again later when they start building Model 3, if the build that in Fremont.
