    Finally took delivery of the MS today. So happy the wait is finally over! As luck would have it, the MS was delivered on my birthday.

    It rained all day but cleared up just as I pulled into the SC. The Columbus SC crew worked late into the night to get the dual chargers installed and have the MS ready for pickup this afternoon. There were some glitches such as the DS telling me I needed to have proof of insurance coverage for the MS since I financed through TM's bank. My insurance agent has been slow to get me the insurance coverage and it happened just a few minutes before I arrived. Please be sure to have proof of insurance listing the MS to be covered. Your agent will need to know the address of MS's bank too so be prepared for that.

    Be sure to carefully read everything...the MS registration had the incorrect county. This added almost an hour to the wait to drive off. Glad I caught this as the tax rate in my county is less than the other county. Tesla owes me money $. I jokingly told the DS that I'd take some swag in exchange for the difference. He immediately placed an order for swag and gave me a Fed-Ex tracking number!

    The DS had a big "Happy Birthday" card on the front windshield and also had lots of balloons in the trunk. The MS looked great - the SC crew did a fantastic job of getting it ready. I did notice that the passenger lip of the frunk lid had goo on it. I didn't worry too much about that.

    Glad to report that the MS has an LTE connection. Was not sure if my MS made the unofficial cut-off date of June 4 as that was the date my MS ended production.

    The DS said the transit time for my P85D was about the longest he has seen (3 weeks). He said Tesla has been using train service to save money and this can really extend the transit times. So much for P85Ds have priority for production and delivery over other MS's as reported by the news in the spring of this year. The DS said several 70Ds and other MS's that were ordered after mine have been coming in via truck. He thinks this is so Tesla can report them for Q2 earnings.

    Good luck to everyone waiting on their MS!

    Congrats Eletrical_Eng! I got mine on Wed and was in and out in an hour. I didn't have insurance on the car when I drove it off. My insurance agent, as well as the DS told me that (in Ohio) I have 7 days to get it insured when I get a new car. During that time, it's covered under my existing policy. As long as I provide Tesla my current auto insurance policy number, I was good. I got insurance update a day later.

    My 70D had LTE as well. The DS told me it was one of the first that he knew of. I'm just glad it had it and I made whatever cut-off date. I need to post some pics....but i'm too busy driving it.

    Confirmed Confirmed May 8
    Completed June 10.
    Arrived Joliet Illinois railhead on June 18
    It's here!


    Mine is ready today Friday at 5 pm for pick up. I told them no way. Chicago is the worlds biggest parking lot on Friday evenings.
    It can take two hours to drive five miles. Just crazy bad traffic on Fridays. Saturday they are booked solid so I will get it Monday at noon. Really tough to wait over the weekend!!! When I placed my order on May 1st, Matt my salesman told me "end of June". Right on schedule. I've been down a couple times to visit a friend in town, so I always stop in at the Tesla store in Highland Park where I ordered my car and drool. Matt told me that I was his first sale on his first day selling Teslas. Great guy. Says he's got a Tesla jacket for me on Monday when I get the car. Nice swag!

    Congrats, but holy smokes, you're crazy. I'd wade through a pit of alligators to pick up my shiny new Model S on a Friday vs. waiting until Monday! (And I'm from the north suburbs of Chicago so know how traffic can be!)

    My baby is home! Ordered my 85D on May 31, picked it up June 26th. Less than a month!
    It sure is a dream to drive. I love gadgets and I think this car will keep me busy playing for a long time.
    Thank you all for your advice and opinions as I went through the decision process and learning process!
    Mike

    Finally got my 85D at 10:30 PM Friday. I can tell this is going to be a great car. Love driving it! It accelerates just a wee bit better than my Volt and ELR did! Name:  image.jpg
