    A few people list their Model S sequence number in their Signatures or elsewhere when they post. For the Roadster your VIN was the only number associated with the car.

    For the Model S, people may post their sequence number while others may post the last few digits of their VIN and they can be two separate cars with the exact same number. Should we just keep listing our sequence number?

    I do t see why not... It's more telling than VIN and a bit more private as well. Its sorta like sequence vs reservation number. The sequence means more.

    Tesla seems to be keeping that up with the X too,so it seems the "way forward".

    Seems likely that we'll migrate to VIN #s -- but even that may be complicated if Tesla decides to restart the VIN sequence number each year, which would be rational given the scale of annual production. Frankly, I expect that once the factory line is up, the whole "what's your reservation #?!?" will disappear as anything of interest.
