    Well, I usually just lurk, but since I can't resist a puzzle... here is piece 5.

    Oohh I just got piece number 6. I wonder how many there are. More people need to ask since there is only one piece per person. Red box piece 6.jpg

    Welcome and thanks for playing! And here I thought while I was gone this puzzle would have been solved already. I don't think many people have caught on yet, maybe we need to drop a hint in the delivery threads.... That's where everyone seems to spend their time saying "my precious...my precious..." :)

    Also for those that have found piece #1, that is a gimme. You need to follow the instructions to get your individual piece. And despite what the instructions read, you only get one piece, not the "complete set". Please post here when you have it.

    I'm told this is the complete set:

    Red box piece 1.jpg Red box piece 2.jpg Red box piece 3.jpg Red box piece 4.jpg Red box piece 5.jpg Red box piece 6.jpg Red box piece 7.jpg Red box piece 8.jpg

    I can't figure out how to combine them for the life of me.

    What I find interesting, that is the arrangement of the pieces when they are stacked atop each other while aligning the edges of the outer white box. That ends up with some overlap of the pieces. Although I can't say I've found any other way to get them to line up, it sure isn't much of a message so far.

    Ok, I am paying attention now. Did the legwork sent an email. Probably not going to get us any further.

    EDIT! Damn I did the legwork and ... then I find woof's link. I had to check my typing of the numbers 4 times. Oh well.

    Maybe "S Lives" - they've created AI for the Model S. Or they're announcing Tesla IV - which could be gen III, just to make it confusing. Or SLIV is the name of gen III. Although "the Tesla SLIV" doesn't have a good ring to it ;) :p

    - - - Updated - - -

    Or if you turn it upside-down it says "\175"

    - - - Updated - - -

    And yesterday I'm sure it said "coming"

    - - - Updated - - -

    (the banner said "coming")

    Yeah, it said coming a few days ago. Perhaps more will be revealed today.

    Hmmm, I was hoping there would be a date hidden in there. Like a date for the Gen III launch event....

    Maybe this is more of a 12 days of Christmas thing and we need to find 12 of these boxes to put the message together.

    I guess we keep looking???

    175 days until the announcement?

    or 1 + (7-5) = 12

    or 12 more pieces

    or divide something by 175

    ;-)

    Do the owners of TMC have privilege to that kind of information, though?

    Edit: I think they're messing with us, but note the filename for the image in the header:

    If you look closely you can see Elvis in the shading. I think it's just the middle part of longer text that reads "Elvis Lives":wink::tongue:
