    I thought I read somewhere that Musk wants ALL MS to be equipped with the Air Suspension - could be reason for the price increase.

Fortunately I had already liquidated a bunch of equities (back when the Dow was >13300), but even still, getting funds wired to Tesla tomorrow is going to take some wrangling. If you have a sequence # below 4000, I'd advise that you get your financing moved along.

    Agreed. I've started liquidating several equities that I hold now so that I'm not caught off guard and have to wait.

    Is there a reason to wire the funds, instead of handing over a check upon delivery?

    (Still no magic e-mail for me. Sigh. I guess my TMC post count isn't high enough to warent special attention )

    I've been told I should hand over a check upon delivery. But still, had to do some wrangling to get the loan approved today and will have all the funds available (and check from the bank) tomorrow.

    I think it depends. My car is being shipped directly to me rather than via any service center (I live in the middle of nowhere and a solid 8 hours from the closest service center). So they wanted my payment in full before loading the car onto the delivery truck. It sounds like anyone going to/through a service center might be able to pay at the time of delivery.

    Yes, because I live in Massachusetts. As my DS wrote: " technically we need to have the final payment before loading the car for it to count legally as an out-of-state transaction." Texans and some others have similarly benighted auto dealership laws.

    Ah, good to know, as I'm also in MA. Guess that proves that P683 will NOT be on that same truck. Sigh--I had hopes.

    (Off to research how to wire funds...never had a need for such urgency before!)

    Yes, Robert.Boston, exactly how does one wire funds to Fremont?

    I've had my money set aside in my bank account for 2 years. Probably not the best way to handle it, but I'm seriously ready to give Tesla my money.
