    What happens after I hit buy now? Is there a personal relationship with someone that confirms my order? Are other options discussed? How am I updated on progress, etc?

    You have a list of options to choose from, so you should familarize yourself with the available options first. Then you will be able to log into your account to see the progress of your build. If you have any questions through the process you can call the order line and speak to a person to help you.

    After you place your order along with the deposit you are given 2 weeks to make changes, after the 2 weeks your order gets sent to the factory, typically a week later your VIN show up in your dashboard, next comes trade in, financing & contracts via email,..my deliver specialist called a couple times if I had any questions...during this time you should prep your garage for charging, research Xpel paint protection, window tint etc...

    Production usually takes about 1 week & you will probably get a call setting up delivery, the process went without any problems for me & pretty straight forward.

    Congrats!

    Does the list of available options evolve beyond whats available with the design tool? I think I'd like 2 converters, but don't really need a home charger. Additionally, but likely not possible, I'd like to have XMRadio, but don;t need the upgraded stereo; I know thats very likely not possible.

    You can order an additional UMC from the Tesla Store on the website. For XMRadio, search through these forums as others have suggested workarounds if you don't do the upgraded stereo.

    I have heard that they undbundled the HPWC from the Twin Chargers on occasion, but you have to call and inquire. The policy on that has been evolving. They realized that people have two cars to charge sometimes. I think that they might be less inclined to unbundle them because it is the better charging option. UMC's are more subject to wear and tear if you are continuously using them both at home and on the road. I might be confusing your terms of "2 converters". Did you mean two UMCs rather than the twin chargers with HPWC? I do believe that the twin chargers are one of the most important options.

    In our state, if we order charging adapters and charging accessories at the time we order the car, we can get a tax break on them. This listing of State incentives is fairly recent. http://www.ncsl.org/documents/energy/EVincentivesNov2013.pdf Your local utility may have incentives too.

    You are correct on the XMRadio assumption, I belive.

    Next comes nesting mode.

    It depends on location, too. They are unbundled in Canada (as seen in the Design Studio). That's probably because of the extensive Sun Country Highway charging network up here, which has a LOT of 70-80 amp chargers. So there's significant demand for dual chargers without HPWC.

    I just talked to Tesla today about adding a second charger without the HPWC. The person I talked to said they can't unbundle any more. While I was talking to him I got a call from Tesla on my voice mail from someone else who left word that I could, in fact, get the second charger without the HPWC. Price $1500 instead of $2700. So I did it, thinking I don't need it for home charging but assuming there'd be times on the road, away from Tesla superchargers when it would come in handy. Not sure what led to the confusion; but it was nice that they took care of it.

    This is a couple of weeks since my "Place order" time, and my dashboard says the scrounging for parts thing. I'm not clear what the endpoint is beyond which you can't make changes; but it doesn't seem to end with the place order move.
