I was supposed to take delivery of my Performance 3 today after four reschedules. I've remained patient throughout the process and my delivery specialist has been a pleasure to work with. The delivery center called me last night saying my car did not pass their inspection and won't be ready until October 4th. They called back 15 minutes later with good news, they happen to have the same configuration, new VIN, ready to be picked up today. My intuition is that this new VIN was rejected by another soon-to-be customer and I should probably take a pass. When I told my contact at the delivery center my thoughts he said that this new car was meant to be a test drive model for the delivery center and it just so happens to be my configuration.
I want to believe him. I want to drive my Model 3 today.
Any thoughts or advice on how to proceed? My current plan is to go to the appointment today and assess the car very closely.
Yesterday's SEC news does not boost my confidence.
