    My car is on the final leg from Vancouver (service center) to Calgary. As I did the official delivery in Vancouver on Monday the App has been enabled so I've been tracking the journey. Might have to go to sleep at some point but I'll be checking it again when I wake up. The truck driver kindly said he would text me at various points on the journey so I would "know where the car is". I didn't tell him that I was already stalking the car.

    That is so awesome! I would have killed to have this feature when I used to ship my car via train. 15-day transit and nobody knew where anything was!

    My final delivery

    My car showed up (at my house) at 09:00. The driver texted me through the night to tell me where he was (Tesla must have told him I was a tad impatient). This kept me up every three hours but I was pretty excited anyway. My attempts to stalk him were sometimes thwarted by the mountains interfering with reception and sometimes the GPS location seemed a bit off; however, when the driver was within about 15 minutes I was able to turn on the climate control to start warming up the frigid car. It had warmed from -3 to above 10 degrees by the time I received it. I got one glorious drive to take the car to the store that installed my Rial Luganos/Blizzak wheels. It is better than I remember - especially as it is my car.
    Pictures of the delivery below.

    The truck had an interesting mix of an old classic and a new (one day classic). Unfortunately the old Olds had dropped rust dust all over the Tesla; however, if the Tesla had been on top, I would have probably had to wait for the Olds to be delivered (to Edmonton). In any case the dust blew off and my detailer is going to carefully clean the whole car anyway.

    The car was so quiet backing off the truck that all we could hear was the creak of the ramp. Electricians truck in the background - my HPWC was finally installed today too.

    Picture that is now my desktop background. Suprising how black this (blue) color looks in certain lights. I'll post new pictures when my wrap has completed and I have my stickers on as ordered through Roger elsewhere on TMC.

    Congrats gpetti!

    I keep forgetting that there is (and has been) a real winter in your parts of the world... Here in Finland we have had the warmest and least snowy winter of the past 50 years.. So we actually have much less snow on the ground currently than what you seem to have there!

    Drive carefully!

    Awesome news about your successful delivery! Glad to hear your first drive was to get your winter tires installed. Too many people on this forum are whipping around in summer rubber.
