Quickest time from order to deliver

Quickest time from order to deliver

I decided to order my SR+ yesterday (3/16) 11:00 pm to beat the price hike on 3/18. It comes to my surprise that I received a text for tentative delivery tomorrow this morning . And, the delivery specialist just call me to confirm indeed they will deliver my car tomorrow at noon!!! It only took 37 hours from hitting the order button to receive my key. Btw, I use Tesla finance.

Wow, that's fast.

Congrats on getting the car! You have me beat; it took me almost exactly 2 years to get mine!

3dwin | March 17, 2019

@Carl Thompson same here. 4/26 1 year anniversary.

@howong congrats your in for a thrill.

Took me 4 days at the end of last Dec. to get my M3P+ and I was never on a wait list. Tesla wanted to move as many cars as they could before the end of the calendar year and I didn't want to miss the $7500 federal tax credit. But I did have to accept one of three M3's that was already on a transport truck heading to my local service center.

Wow that is super fast. Are you in SF Bay Area? Congrats ! I ordered my SR+ today , wondering how long is my wait time.

When I first placed my order on 3/11, I received a text message saying it would be delivered on 3/16. BUT, two days later it moved to the 23rd. Unfortunately, I am not in the area on the 23, so I called and moved it to the 25th. Still 2 weeks is better than 2 years.

What rate is Tesla finance quoting you?
Best I can do locally is 4.24 on a 48.

lordmiller | March 18, 2019

@sl7vk You'll get 3.75 from Tesla. Great rate and super easy. I literally filled in my address and my yearly salary and done deal! Definitely use Tesla, loan is through US Bank.

Sky Pilot | March 18, 2019

@sl7vk: I could be wrong, but I don't think Tesla finances anyone, but rather locates the best financing for your specific needs. They quoted me 3.75% but it was through Wells Fargo.

82bert | March 18, 2019

Ordered our 2nd 3 last night. Planning to do it all through Tesla including trade in of our last remaining ICE (never again). Hoping to get quoted best rate for financing and decent trade in. I’m being lazy about this.

82bert | March 18, 2019

And as I wrote that, Tesla cam through at 3.75% via us bank.

We will see how trade in goes next.

Ordered LR AWD online evening of Jan 29, got text next morning that it was ready for pickup! Unfortunately, we couldn’t get there that soon, so we didn’t actually pick it up until that Friday, Feb 1.

Her5066 | March 18, 2019

Bought my M3 on 3-17. Live in So Cal and check my phone every five minutes in case I missed a call or email. Literally been one day and I feel like it’s been a year! Want that car now!

williamkim595 | March 19, 2019

Thats pretty fast. We always order our cars to get delivered at the earliest but those guys always delay the order. Thank god, at least you got the order as earliest as possible. is also greater speed third party apps store to get car related apps which get connected to car wifi and make lot of things better.

adoh2010 | March 19, 2019

I ordered 3/13 and picked up 3/16. Day 1 reservation holder. Tentatively was 3/18

jjgunn | March 19, 2019

I have a reservation (still) too.

I wanted to hit the order button but was afraid of "48 hour delivery"

Congrats on getting the car so fast. You're in for a new life altering experience

sahil_udeshi | March 19, 2019

if you order m3 from inventory in Canada will you be given 2019 or 2018 if they matchup vehicle with config you want .what year do they deliver

howong | March 19, 2019

@elephant in a bottle, yes I'm in Bay Area. Tesla finance is through Well Fargo for %3.75

Sky Pilot | March 19, 2019

@howong: Sooooo, did you take delivery as promised?

kurtmetcalfe24 | March 19, 2019


I got back from a work trip on Friday afternoon. I decided to text my OA after opening the mail and finally receiving the title to my truck (lost the original). I asked if there were any LR AWD sitting around in grey or black. He text me back saying they had one. Placed the order 30 minutes later. I almost took delivery that same day but I couldn't find a babysitter. I completed a Trade-in/Tesla Finance and was driving away in my car the next day at 11 am.

Panevino | March 21, 2019

That's fast. I thought I got a good timing deal. Bought online on 3/15, picking up on 3/22.

klusmania | March 21, 2019

We ordered a LR AWD in early October on a Wednesday night and had an email and a call the next morning, 12 hours later "can you pick up your car"? We needed to go out of town and so we picked it up 4 days after we ordered it!

BoiseRunner | March 22, 2019

Received VIN yesterday and paid today. Delivery specialist said it was due at Salt Lake City today but now won’t arrive until tomorrow. He said I might get a final delivery date on Monday (from SLC to Boise). Really hoping I have a shot to receive by Wednesday or Thursday. Delivery specialist has been really helpful and replying quickly.

Anyone know if I have a chance? How long typically between service center and destination?

ejam | March 22, 2019

woot woot! Got my VIN number today!!! AWD, Midnight Silver metallic. I'm in Montreal ordered March 4

Lbrooks51115 | March 22, 2019

That's great. Congrats. I ordered mine on Labor Day Monday. When I called Tesla right after I ordered to get an idea of delivery time they said about 8 weeks and I would have plenty of time to do financing and do my trade in. Well two days later on Wednesday I get a call that they were ready to deliver on Thursday.two frickin days! I felt bad for all these great posters who had been waiting years. Well . Middle of work week and had done nothing to arrange financing and trade in. Like yourself I got a great rate at Tesla ( way better than local credit union 3.59%) and they gave me 5k more in my Bolt trade in than CarMax. Flawless experience and got my car on Saturday.

jeff d | March 22, 2019

I guess one perk of extra inventory is you can get your car ASAP!!! Which generally is really a good thing, having to wait weeks is almost like waiting for the baby to arrive... when will it get here?!?!?! I've ordered all the accessories, painted the garage, and installed 14-50 outlet. When will it get here?!?! The "joys" of made-to-order... vs. stocked inventory. In the end the car was on-site 4 weeks after ordering (early 5000/week days) and was picked up basically 2 weeks later.

sully91870 | March 23, 2019

I have you beat, i bought my LR AWD on wed. at 5:19 and my delivery was the next day at 4P. Left the Marina Del Ray delivery center at 4:50p. Financed thru Tesla and traded in my BMW 440i. Went extremely fast, so fast im now trying to get the wall charger installed as fast as possible! Lucky for me i have a 50 amp 14-50 plug in the garage for my Welding rig that im using with the mobile charger.

CV63 | March 23, 2019

Springfield NJ store.

Ordered 10am and picked it up 5pm same day.

Kary993 | March 23, 2019

I ordered my M3P on a Saturday and they delivered it to my house the following Tuesday. That is service!!! I barely had time to move the cash around to write them the final check!

BoiseRunner | March 23, 2019

Delivery specialist told me on Thursday my car was being delivered to the service center on Friday and that I would need to pay immediately in order to receive a delivery date. I paid.

Checked in on Friday and he said the car was expected to arrive to the service center on Saturday.

Checked in on Saturday and he said the car was expected to arrive to the service center on Sunday.

No idea what's happening but wish Tesla would be more transparent. I suspect they just wanted to get the money in.

Kary993 | March 23, 2019

You don't have to pay for the car in full until you take delivery. No where is there any word that you have to pay up front, other than the deposit, to get a delivery date for your car.

BoiseRunner | March 23, 2019

He said I have to pay in full or else it cannot be delivered. Today I pulled back the ACH with my bank and said I wanted a delivery date. He said he would unfortunately have to give my car to someone else and take my VIN back.

I won't be a Tesla customer after all. Best of luck to all of you. What a company.
