For those of you wondering what the timing might be from the time you receive your VIN#, to the time your car gets delivered, here's what I got, and here's what happened:
December 6th - Received VIN #, via the following email:
The time has finally come where your VIN is in our system! Here it is: XXXXXXXXXXXXX1929. You should have no trouble getting insurance for your Model S with this information. You can get financing with the preMVPA and VIN, however some banks or credit unions will want the final paperwork. I would like to have the car complete its journey through the factory before preparing the final paperwork, and I expect that to happen in the next 2 weeks. Also, I was informed that the transit time from CA to NY is 10-14 days , so it is probably going to be 4 weeks before delivery takes place. However, feel free to email or call if you are having troubles, or would like up-to-date information, and I will do what I can.
December 25th - Car arrived at Queens, NY Service Center
December 30th - Car was delivered to our home on the eastern end of Long Island. I probably could have had it delivered a couple of days sooner, but I was traveling, and then we had snow predicted upon our return.
Estimated time from VIN to delivery: 4 weeks
Actual time from VIN to delivery: 3 weeks 3 days (again, could have been closer to 3 weeks)
