For all those that have taken delivery, and especially those that have done the "delivery as it rolls off the assembly line without you actaully getting the car" program, how does the whole process work.
Let's start at the first paperwork signed, your deposit is non-refundable and your My Tesla status is your car is being built.
I understand you get your ViN when the DS calls you. Is this correct?
What are the steps from here?
When does Tesla expect the purchase to be fully funded?
Are the keys normally handed to you when you hand them a cashier's check or do the wire?
Has anyone paid for their car as it rolls off the line (so presumably Tesla can book the revenue) and not received it? How do you feel about that type of transaction?
Thanks in advance to those that have taken delivery to taking time to educate those of us in waiting.
