TEXAS Mid-Range Waiting Room

TEXAS Mid-Range Waiting Room

I currently live in the DFW area and wanted to start a waiting room for just us Texas folks.

I still haven't heard from a Delivery Advisor yet, only from the person who calls about home charging and solar stuff. My config is below, please share your delivery updates!

Day 1 Reservation
Ordered 10/18
Mid-Range
Black Ext
Black Int
19" Sport Wheels
No EAP

Hi. I also live in DFW and am waiting for my delivery advisor to contact:

Day 1 reservation
Ordered 11/2
Performance
Blue Ext
White Int
EAP

Hope you hear soon - I am worried November is ticking by and we;re getting close to the end of the year. Elon promised in his tweet a couple of days back that he will have all orders before 11/30 delivered by the end of the year but it doesn't help that I don't have a VIN or delivery advisor contact yet.

brianrmurray | November 17, 2018

I've seen a couple of people say their DA contacts them and delivery is within a week of that so crossing my fingers Texas will be that way.

Jamesseaward | November 17, 2018

That would be nice :)

Jamesseaward | November 17, 2018

The Plano showroom let me know that there are gray and white cars in Texas inventory, but black, blue and red are rarer and will need to come from CA when they get made.

Kikujiro | November 17, 2018

I have a feeling most Texans with reservations will get notified on Monday.

nihirc | November 17, 2018

I live in DFW area as well. I ordered mine on 10/21. I am not the reservation holder though.

brianrmurray | November 17, 2018

@Kikujiro is there any insider info you have for that reasoning or just a guess?

ukhan24 | November 17, 2018

Also in Texas

Ordered 10/19
MR Blue, Aero, EAP
Non reservation holder
Waiting to hear from Tesla sometime soon

Does anyone know if they still have LR RWD in local showrooms? I may consider switching...

Jamesseaward | November 18, 2018

Speak with your local showroom. When I went into the Plano one, I was shown a list of Texas inventory. There was a mix of types but there were about 20 model 3 cars on the list.

VuEsla | November 18, 2018

For those who are waiting for their delivery M3 and want free 6 months supercharging just need to email Tesla at referralprogram@tesla.com with the car Reservation number and welcome to use my code https://ts.la/felix36342. The referral support will add 6 months of free supercharging to your account.

Kikujiro | November 18, 2018

@brianrmurray - The Teslike spreadsheet shows most East Coast reservations received dates and I am assuming Tesla is moving to Mid-west. Biggest chunk of orders are in Texas, so Texans will probably hear tomorrow.

brianrmurray | November 18, 2018

@Kikujiro that's excellent I think it's definitely a safe bet we'll hear this week. Would be awesome to get them before the end of the month.

v_sibu | November 18, 2018

Was checking Model 3 Order Tracker Spreadsheet. None from Texas got a Vin.

I had called to change my order from white to black interior and it seems that the 'Day 1 Reservation' or the 'Current Tesla Owner' status does not make any difference. Received a call about home charging installation but no call yet about M3 MR.

Jamesseaward | November 19, 2018

@Kikujiro : As the lights go down in Texas, no contact today...

Andy.s.cordova | November 19, 2018

I got a call from Tesla today, sadly it was for home charging and solar....waiting in Houston

brianrmurray | November 20, 2018

No contact either on Monday, hoping for something on Tuesday!

shyam.p | November 20, 2018

I live in Houston... still no word from Tesla. Ordered on 10/19. Day 1 reservation holder, though that seems to be irrelevant now.

brianrmurray | November 20, 2018

@mjserda I got the exact same config as you. I'm in Carrollton, and I've only gotten the home charging call.

Andy.s.cordova | November 20, 2018

I'm betting that those calls have something to do with it all. I'm sure they would want to try to sell you on home charging before your car arrives. Hang tight!

brianrmurray | November 20, 2018

Just heard from delivery advisor! Wanted me to confirm home delivery, paying with cash, etc...Hope to hear back from him soon and get a delivery date! Once again here are my details.

Dallas (Carrollton suburb)
Day 1 reservation
Mid-Range
Black exterior
Black interior

My guess for the Texas delays is because of our stupid laws because it needs to be fully paid for and the contract signed BEFORE they can ship the car from California to Texas.

brianrmurray | November 20, 2018

Oops, ordered on 10/18 as well.

shyam.p | November 21, 2018

@brianrmurray That's great news! What kind of timeframe are they giving for shipping from California to Texas? Keep us posted!

Still nothing on my end. A week since order. A gallery adviser near my area said I should be hearing from a DA in 1-2 weeks.

Haven't heard a peep yet, but I've been calling the gallery once a week just to make sure they're not waiting on anything from me. Last call with them they were saying it's a pretty slim chance that it will be delivered by the end of the year.

brianrmurray | November 26, 2018

UPDATE: Dallas, TX

I got my call today with delivery date. I spoke with a DA last week to set up delivery but had to pay off in full first before delivery, which I did today. A couple hours later I got my home delivery set up for next Wednesday, Dec 5th! Very excited!! Note: I had to ask for VIN from DA so make sure you do that.

rashidmn | November 26, 2018

@brianmurray, congratulations!

Really happy to see deliveries happening in Texas. Cant wait for mine! My order details are below.

Did the call from the DA come from a Fremont area code or local Texas? I dont pickup calls from numbers that I dont recognize. Just want to make sure I dont miss the call!

Also, was the process of 'paying in full' pretty smooth? Was that through the Tesla website or wire transfer through the bank? Thanks :D

brianrmurray | November 26, 2018

@rashidmn the paying in full was done on your Tesla account page via ACH (bank withdraw via routing and checking account number) it was easy as could be just need to know your numbers. My original DA was via email, but the person who called today called from Las Vegas, NV and said she was helping him out due to high volume. I’ve heard from others about calls from Vegas so make sure you pick up a call from Vegas!

rashidmn | November 26, 2018

@brianmurray, the payment process seems pretty easy. I just checked my spam folder for emails from Tesla, no luck! lol

Thank you for the information.

Glockoma | November 30, 2018

@BASmith who told you this? From everyone I've talked to they've said we are still on track to receive by end of year.

rashidmn | November 30, 2018

@httran26. I did notice from the forum posts and 'Teslike Model 3 Order Tracker' that the white M3s were being delivered faster than the other colors.
