    Finally I am a Tesla owner!

    After more than 2 years of lurking, reading, researching, investing, cheering on from the sidelines, waffling over whether to wait for Model 3, etc., I decided it was time to go ahead with a Model S.

    Seems like Tesla is really making strides on increasing capacity. My car was ready quicker than I expected. Ordered April 26 and confirmed May 6. Original delivery estimate was late June. My car was actually built at the end of May. I just had to delay delivery due to a business trip. Took delivery yesterday, June 19.

    Model S 85D
    Ocean Blue
    Solid Roof
    Standard 19" wheels with Michelin Primacy tires
    Standard coil springs
    Tan leather with next gen seats
    Obeche Gloss
    Autopilot

    That does look good (except for what appears to be a scrape on the door but must be something else?).

    Ha! Yes, I checked over the finish very carefully and there definitely isn't a scrape there. Must be a reflection.

    The new Deep Blue/Ocean Blue is a beautiful color. The original blue was much too dark (in my opinion) but I like this blue a lot.

    The Tesla Grin is indeed potent; even rush hour traffic through Austin after my delivery couldn't stop it.
