I received the same text this morning, order placed last week and Tesla confirmed 1st to 10th March (white/black/18"), LR. I assume this will be a US built M3?
Same text as me and when I spoke to them they said they can't give VIN until 5 days before delivery as it might change, but she confirmed they will be MIC cars

Spoke to Tesla Chat, got a VIN assigned, it's a LRW VIN so made in china, and it's forecasted to arrive in the country end of Feb for delivery first week of March, so presumably it's on the Glovis Century.

They wouldn't confirm if it has a heated steering wheel or not

To get live chat go to the model 3 inventory page. A popup chat box should appear in the bottom right hand corner.
I just went on the page, got the chat window, typed in my message and then the chat window vanished!
I guess I caught them at the end of the shift :( I’ll have to try first thing tomorrow.

I refreshed the site and got the chat back again, but the person I talked to said that the only way they could match someone through the chat is if I changed my spec. He said that if there was any stock heading over then the system will automatically assign it to my order.

So I guess it’s back to waiting and hoping I get that text message soon.

Strangely the Tesla website is continually timing out for me right now and I am struggling to get to my order details.

If I ordered through a lease company do you think they'd be able to help? I got an email from Tesla earlier today asking me to create an account so I'm assuming they have my order?

I’ve got a white LR on order and have been given a VIN which appears to be coming from China. Reading these posts regarding a March delivery and wondering why I’ve had a text just saying vehicle allocated and they will be touch to sort vehicle delivery. No date mentioned yet. Are all text messages different?

Newbie here looking for some advice on likely or estimated delivery dates. I'm looking to order a M3 SR+, white exterior, aero wheels and white interior shortly and the Tesla website suggests an estimated delivery in February - I'm assuming that is overly optimistic? Ideally, I would like to take delivery of the car in around June this year - when would be best to place an order to receive it around that June window? Tried to have this discussion on the chat function on the Tesla website but struggling to connect.

If you havr a VIN the car will be on a ship. If ithe VIN is MIC then its extremely likely it is on the Glovis Century. This has just left Singapore and estimated to arrive in Port Said on 8th Feb (the Med side of the Suez Canal). You may not have a date because they aren't sure when the ship will arrive in Southampton? Maybe?

I'm in the same situtation as you and my account has been updated to now say estimated delivery Feb. (it didnt used to say anything) however I got the same text as you with no dates.

Ordering now most likely would be a March delivery although there may be unallocated cars amongst the first ships to arrive.
Tesla do everything they can to deliver all orders within the calendar quarter that they are placed.
If you order around mid-April (to avoid any left over units from end of Q1, barring any surprises you will likely take delivery in June or tail end of May.

Is there any reason to get the VIN before they issue it in due course, other than to check where it was made? Or is it like checking in at the airport as soon as you can as you have a seat and printed your ticket at home you have priority over others if the plane is overbooked?

I ordered a MX LR+ last November for March 2021 delivery. Received a text from Tesla UK to say that they were keeping the FSD at the same price and I'll receive a £2000 discount on a new MX. So my outstanding order is now going to cost me more which is okay ish. On the UK order page it states 2022 delivery which is over a year away and too far away for my plans. Possible due to the fact it will be right hand drive. The message also said that an agent was going to reach out to me in a few days and I had until the end February to decide.

Seems crazy that they’ll stop all U.K. S and X deliveries for a year plus!
