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!
