Where’s the better place to take delivery: IC or Yorkdale?

    So my car is due to arrive at the end of the month, and I’ve been told that depending on the exact date when I am available for pickup, if would mean going to IC vs Yorkdale/Oakville. Is there any advantage to picking up my model 3 in one place vs the other? My thoughts are that the IC may be a more rushed experience? From posts I’ve read, all 3’s come with a mandatory front plate and a die cast 3 at the IC. I haven’t come across any Model 3 delivery experiences at non-IC locations in Ontario. I suspect the answer is it doesn’t make a difference, but looking to see if anyone has opinions one way or the other.

    Yorkdale does not make delivery. It shall be either Oakville, Lawrence or IC. I have heard that Tesla only rented IC for a month stating from May 30

    Yes, sorry you’re right. Lawrence is what I meant when I said Yorkdale. Delivery specialist said IC deliveries are ending as of the 28th. My question is if I should try and squeeze myself into the IC delivery schedule, or go to the Lawrence one a few days later. I realize this question is bordering on paranoid, but looking to see if anyone thinks it matters. Looks like the answer is no, given the lack of replies.

    Lawrence and Oakville is a service center, of course, they will be better. Because, they have mechanics to help if anything found wrong during delivery process (hope that not happen)..

    I would recommend that you take delivery at the IC if you can get your car there. Ask for the first possible slot. Doug Ford takes office officially on the 29th, and all bets are off as to the EVIP after that date. It may be post dated if you have already ordered, it may not. Who knows. Why take the chance.

    Completely agree RE: EVIP/Ford perspective. Getting nervous as he makes proclamations even before he takes power. Feel like the EVIP cancellation might be a low hanging fruit, but fingers crossed it takes a bit of time before he axes it. Sounds like really no huge difference, so get the car ASAP is the plan. Waiting to see if I can get time off work.

    I agree. The following indicates other green programs are being shelved and he's not even gotten into power yet. https://www.thestar.com/news/queenspark/2018/06/19/doug-ford-warns-gasoline-companies-to-pass-along-his-10-cent-a-litre-tax-cut.html
