    New unused 21's by the way.

    They were running 19s for the winter and put the stock 21s back on for me. So, they will be pretty much brand new. Woot!

    Congrats! You'll love it. During my many hours with the Design Studio I frequently configured blue with grey interior. I think that's a beautiful combination.

    Alright.

    Car are has arrived at my service center ready for delivery. Arrived this afternoon. They are checking it over and detailing it.

    Appt for 2pm tomorrow (Sat) to pick it up.

    Luckily, the service center / showroom is 5 min from my house. That is the only one in my state too. That helped push me over the edge of making the purchase knowing they are so close.

    I think I will have to take an ambien tonight. Ha!

    I picked up my car today at 2 PM.

    All I can say is WOW.

    I love the blue color. It actually looks black on an overcast and rainy day like today.

    I love the red brake calipers

    The car handles like a dream. The power is incredible.

    I am still trying to get used to all the stares. And it's only been 4 hrs.

    I like attention but even this feels a little intimidating. ��

    I think I could drive this 24/7 and never get bored. Sooooooo excited.

    Now to install my red TESLA letters and wheel cover stickers.

    First post has some pics of the car before it left MN

    I will update pics now that it is in my possession. With the Red wheel cover stickers, the red TESLA lettering stickers and my NC "[email protected]" vanity plate.

    Might be mid-week when it's sunny again. But I will def upload some.

    I am sad to admit this. But..... Today (day 2 of ownership) I got in my car, left the house, and simply drove around for 45 min.

    With no purpose whatsoever other than to enjoy the Tesla driving experience.

    So sad.

    Am I addicted or what.

    I guess you could always seek help :wink:

    Just don't sell the car. That would be too easy. :smile:

    Geez, I don't feel so bad now. I'm slated to pick mine up on the 14th. I did, of course, have to take the Friday before (the 11th) off as well as the entire week of the 14th. I plan on doing alot of driving around (if there are no unforeseen issues).

    You were smart. I picked mine up when the service center opened and then stupidly went to work. It made for a miserable work day until I could get out of there! I did then realize I needed to take a couple of days off that week.
