    Delivery process in MA

    I haven't completed the trek yet, but am posting what I have been through and what I understand to be what is left to do.

    1. Sign MVPA
    2. Wire/send funds (including MA 6.25% sales tax)
    3. Car gets shipped from Cali (~7 days)
    4. You sign a Cali DMV form to get temp ID
    5. You tell insurance company you're getting car direct from manufacturer and will have the items below soon; provide the VIN and pre-set the insurance (so you can drive it on day one)
    6. Tesla provides: Temp Cali ID, check for sales tax (from your funds), Manufacturer's cert of origin, (other stuff?)
    7. Get this info over to your insurance company and get an RMV-1 form
    8. You take all this to RMV and get registered & plates
    9. Your car arrives somewhere between #4 and this item (depends on the situation)


    I'll adjust this list as I get through it. I'm sure I have some stuff wrong here ...

    Also lets note, according to @TroyS, there appears to be a time limit from the time you initially insure the vehicle (step 5) and your trip to the registry (step 8).

    It's 7 days according to my insurance provider. The Cali temp registration is good for 90, but it sounds like the MA 7 days controls.

    This is what I have taped to the back window. It came off a perforated California DMV form (with a carbon copy) -- the form in step 4 in the original post ....

    OK, who updated the form without telling IT?

    Got my title / cert of origin, sales tax check, and purchase agreement from Tesla (it's late -- looks like they misunderstood that I needed it / hadn't been sent yet). Tomorrow I call insurance to get RMV-1 form, and then off to the registry.

    I'll also mention here that the Watertown service center opening is imminent (supposed to be tomorrow but a minor nit might delay it a few days). Sales license will follow (as long as the current lawsuit doesn't end up in a successful injunction).

    Cinergi, do you know if the Watertown center will have a supercharger or something similar?

    Highly unlikely to have a SC, but will almost definitely have the HPWC (80-amp level 2 -- ~60 MPH of charging).
