I'm scheduled to pick mine up in Denver on Saturday. I'm getting Xpel applied at the Tesla service center so that is taking another day, but once I get it, it's mine. Looks like it is going to end up taking 5-6 days to get from CA to CO.

I received an email from my DS before I got the VIN, probably about 2 weeks after confirmation.

I been corresponding on occasion with a Tesla employee (initials KB) since confirming , whose title has change from Service Specialist to Model S Specialist over the last 4 months. Is that the DS? I thought the DS was local to my Service Center.

I don't know. Mine is a "Delivery Experience Specialist," whatever that's worth.

My delivery date for VIN 816XX just flipped from late May to May. Sweet! I confirmed my order on 3/18. They must be doing a heck of a job pushing backlogged orders out for end of quarter shipments. My order specialist (Cleveland doesn't yet have a delivery specialist) just told me she is stupid busy getting new deliveries out the door.

I've also been working with a "Model S Specialist" with initials KB. The local guy I have been working with has "Delivery Experience" in his email and is who I would consider the DS.

Thanks for the info. I last heard from KB last week. I haven't heard from anyone local yet. I briefly met a few of the service guys at the event at Sports Authority Field last weekend.

Production complete today, picking up Thursday morning. Cashier's Check in hand. This will be a long 2 days.

I'm with ethanr75. Delivery is SO exciting.
On mine...production completed last week, and was put on a truck on Friday.
I'm scheduled to pick up car tomorrow and drove to pickup location today (so I could get the lay of the land).
I pulled up at the same time as the truck with my car on it!
I'm such a geek...I took a picture of it on the truck.
Cheesy I know...but that's the sign of Tesla excitement!
:biggrin:

And these are exactly the cars and deliveries that make us feel pi... off here on the other side of the pond. Ordering about 2 months later, getting it 2 earlier, while we even pay more as the exchange rates went good for Tesla.

2nd class customers, rant!
