    Does anybody know if the VINS are allocated on a Daily basis 7 days a week or a set day/Time every week ?
    Or is it simply at total random ...

    Ran a quick analysis for you of the past year of data in the spreadsheet....

    VIN numbers appear to be allocated 7 days a week, with a slightly lower take on Sundays.

    Monday 18%
    Tuesday 19%
    Wednesday 18%
    Friday 17%
    Saturday 16%
    Sunday 12%

    If the UK, quite possibly. The US ... probably late October-mid Nov. since we get mixed signals from Tesla - we’ve got to guess. All we have are patterns from Q3 to go by. Tesla may have changed its strategy, and may change it again.

    I reserved 16/6/17 and ordered 4/6/19. Still no VIN or invoice. I didn't like to bother them while they were busy, but decided enough is enough. I emailed the Melbourne delivery centre last week, but no response. Hope they haven't forgotten my order! Think I will ring today.

    2017!? Yes, something is definitely wrong. Every reservation should have been cleared by now. I haven't seen anyone with a reservation wait more than 30 days in the Australia orders.
