Would you mind sharing what steps that you had to take to get your car in Hawaii? I just finalized my order a few minutes ago. I was told earlier this morning that in HI, AZ & TX that we have to take care of paying the sales tax & registration. I presume that we have to take our invoice to the state Dept. of Taxation to pay the sales tax, then hand it to the Tesla delivery specialist so they can deliver it to your house? And does Tesla mail the title to your house, then we have to go to the City Motor Vehicle Bureau to get our registration? What did you do while waiting for your plates? Do we get a piece of white cardboard and write a date 90 days into the future like the local dealers? This is very disappointing. Makes you wonder what that $180 preparation fee is for.
