    Confirmed 9/9. Got my electrician to install 2 of the 14-50 outlets in my garage. One on either wall for flexibility. Now what?!

    Wait, go through the roller coaster ride of reading threads here that make you happy or mad, wait some more, wonder why it's taking so long, wait some more, then bam before you know it car will be on a carrier to WA.

    Uh yes, that would be a good thing :biggrin:

    Aaaargh! just got off the phone. Their estimated entry into the assembly line is Oct 7; Completed October 11; ships out the 12th; 7-10 days transit. estimated delivery oct 21! almost 2 months! I guess their really pushing out the +s. Does anyone have the number to a cryopreserve facility?

    Assembly the 7th--wow! I think they must be cranking the European deliveries again, and US will have longer wait times. OUCH! BTW, it won't take 7-10 days to FL. Maybe 4.

    Here--look at this and meditate:

    I confirmed mine a day before you did. They've been telling me late October from the beginning. A friend of mine on another forum is having theirs delivered this Saturday a full week early, so you never know...

    Neither. It was a standard 85.

    If there's a better looking car on the planet, I sure don't know what it would be. God I love these things... I wish mine would get here!!!!

    Well I love my MS and think it's amazingly beautiful, but if money were no object I'd also have pics of my Bugatti Veyron to post. The sad part is, I'd only want to look at it after driving my Tesla!

    Thanks! Totally worth all the work, but polish is way easier to apply than wax!

    For me, I couldn't drive a car like a Bugatti (or a Ferrari or Lamborghini). It just wouldn't fit me and I'd feel like I was "showing off". But the Tesla... Fits me to a "T". It's just the right balance of luxury and sport. Add to that it's green and you've given me enormous added incentive to drive a $100k car. It's the perfect storm. ;)

    Totally get what you're saying. But for me, I could choke back my humility to put my butt in the seat of a Bugatti. Parking it in front of my small, modest house would be ridiculous, though! Even the Tesla is too good for my driveway, lol.

    As a shareholder and future owner (No, I will not admit how many times per week I configure my fantasy car!), I enjoy reading the excitement on this thread. You'd think the men and women here were expecting their first baby. Expectant, soon-to-be-proud parents. And the other Tesla parents are nearby, telling us the grin only gets bigger over time. :smile:

    Wouldn't know since I don't have kids (which is partly how I was able to buy my MS, lol), but I can imagine it is a similar feeling. Here are a few interior pics of my "baby" to help those waiting to kill some time!

    And for fun, here's Charlie, my Laser Cat
