I'm wondering if these are the first examples of tesla assigning VIN's to export orders prior to the vehicles being shipped?
What could be 'special' about the Ireland orders that would necessitate deviating from this approach? Could it be related to their grant that's getting pulled in July?
I don't think these are assigned pre-shipping. My guess is that they've shipped an allocation of RHD for Ireland on an earlier ship than the UK orders due to the cessation of the grant in July
Just to add more fuel to the fire !! I asked our usual questions on Tesla chat last night and was told our cars would be arriving 1st week in June and deliveries would be made 2nd and 3rd weeks of June. Talking into account the Irish members have had vins allocated you would have to assume that other M3P’s would be on the same boat. Looking at all of the above of this were correct you would have to say our cars could be on the Glovis Sun. However if that were the case why has the Irish members received vins and the UK hasn’t ? The plot thickens !!
Lol, that would be a lot of fun (for them) !......I reckon all those behind the Tesla chat function are keeping an eye on this forum/thread and are having a great time watching us piece together all the conflicting information the are randomly dripping out!

So we’ll be the first batch! Hope it’s not a case of ironing out issues as they go. They’d never do that, would they!Yep. Tesla have done this on several occasions in the past to ensure cars meet deadlines in plenty of time. Once I saw that the grant limit on the SEAI? grant appeared to be changing, getting Irish orders that were affected fulfilled early made perfect sense.
In early stages of Model 3 delivery, a number of Scottish orders seemed to leapfrog long standing orders in order to meet a financial incentive deadline and more recently some iirc Dutch orders got preferential treatment for similar reason.
