I was one of those people who procrastinated over making a purchase or not 6 months ago. I wasn't worried about missing the the Fed tax rebate. I don't qualify! and it actually helped me in the beginning of the year. Got 2,000 off the sticker thanks to Elon changing pricing and finance rates to 3.75 on Jan 2nd. I went to showroom and purchased a 2019 build Model S 75D Grey metallic Paint, Grey metallic wheel upgrade, black interior, No advanced auto pilot.
I received confirmation on January 7, that the car is scheduled for production and received my Vin. I got a call from Tesla inside delivery advisor to set up paperwork,insurance, registration, etc.
I was thinking of trading my vehicle, they offered 15,000 and it's only off by about 1,800, with the tax break it's just a few bucks profit but no hassle selling it myself. now here is then it gets tricky..
When I placed order, The web said January delivery, the sales rep says 1 1/2 to 2 months delivery, the paperwork guy says hell let me know when I get a vin. (I already have it, but he can't see that?)
and lastly the internet only references the Model 3.
I've looked on the net for answers but they are very mixed and contradicting answers.
And yes, I test drove it with intentions to buying the top end model on that day I came in for the test drive. After the Model S test drive, It was clearly a very easy decision. Although the model 3 is very teched out for the X generation, to me it felt like I was in a futuristic Golf cart with a ipad attached that goes real fast, summary after the test drive, it's a cute toy.
The model S on the other hand actually felt like a real modern gentleman's car with plenty of room, style, comfort, power and still had more options and tech features than the model 3. Just my 2 cents. So that's why I purchased the S vs the 3. Just my 2 cents. lol!
Does anybody have any credible insight of when I can expect delivery too NYC?
Does anybody have or just recently made a purchases so I can compare delivery times?
Does anybody have any Tesla trade in knowledge to share?
Did you get a customary dealer gift at the delivery of your new vehicle?
Any insight will help.
Thank you all in advance and I look forward to swapping stories and experiences with you guys in the near very future.
