    I know for many of us that taking delivery of an M3 will be the day that a long-term dream is realized. Like many on TMC, I've wanted a Tesla since I first heard of the Roadster, and it became a life goal to one day own a Tesla. I cross the bridge to "Owner" status on March 31st at 1:00 PM.

    Getting a Tesla has been such a big thing for me for so long that my girlfriend of four years said that it marks a big moment in our relationship, and she asked me a question that I don't have an answer to:

    "So what are you going to obsess about next?" :confused:

    I... :eek: Um... o_O I have no honest idea! Who else is facing this situation?

    I'm going to start obsessing about breakfast cereals myself.

    Haha well for Telsa, yes, but are you thinking the Y will be your next vehicle after the 3?

    My girlfriend didn't want a Volt (my transition car between the Leaf and the 3) because she thought it was too small. Fast forward maybe a week after she'd driven mine, and she regretted it. Now, she's taking my Volt as I go for the 3, and she's calling that same Volt her transition car until the Y comes out.

    Quite possibly may get a Y in the future, either to replace my own 3 or maybe for my wife. It would be nice to be a two Tesla family. Hopefully once she sees how my Model 3 performs she will be receptive to the idea of a Tesla for herself. Range anxiety seems to be her main concern and I’m fairly certain that will go away relatively quickly once I finally get my Model 3 next week.

    Then you too can find yourself wondering "How am I going to get a HPWC on that side of the garage?"

    As someone who has been married a while (34 years), allow me to suggest there's only one right answer to her question:
    "You, of course!"

    Hah, well for now that’s a non-issue since my house only has a 1 car garage. Next house will definitely have a 2 car garage.

    I'm waaaay ahead on this. I ran the wire purposely to place the 24' HPWC so it'll be able to serve in the rear of all 3 garage stalls (even the 2 that are currently also covered by the J1722 cable's reach for front ports).

    My new obsession will be related to the old one:

    Have you considered a cat obsession? I highly recommend it.

    She already has one, and I may have failed (again) when (because she didn't give me any gift ideas) I gave her all kinds of "Crazy Cat Lady" related gifts when she turned 40.

    This just popped in my head. Not sure it applies but it made me chuckle.

    We've had that talk. After all the obvious fails I can see just based on this thread, she still wants to. Not sure what that says about her. :D

    I've wondered this myself quite a bit. Does my past 2 years of daily google search for Model 3 in the past 24 hours indicate my obsession with owning the car? Or is it my interest in seeing Tesla disrupt the auto industry and force everyone else to build non-compliance EVs? It's probably a bit of both.

    So after I take delivery of my Model 3 in 2 days, I'll probably go back to obsessing over Tesla's mission. I'll probably even hang out here longer and cheer on people as they get their invites, VINs, and deliveries.
