The Tesla factory is building my Model S so I have not taken possession of the “grin” yet, but I do have the Tesla stomach. It’s like that nervousness you got before the first day of school, or the morning of your birthday and it’s a little like that feeling you get when you’ve made a HUGE mistake (apologies to GOB Bluth). Should I have splurged for the P, did I really need the air, was the tech a waste of money, am I going to have creaks, floating, NOISY, charging issues, excessive tire wear, has Slacker heard of Tommy, is a valet going to crack it up, and should I get the service plan?
My order was finalized 5/11, delivery button came 2 days later. 2 days after that I got the delivery window of 6/11-7/3.
I’m not obsessed, I’m really not. My wife can confirm that I only check the “My Tesla” page 10-15 times an hour. That’s normal, right? I’m prepared. I’ve got my mats airing out because they have the same smell as the alien in Independence Day (And what’s that smell?!!) and my Zaino stuff is on the way. Electricity is done and in a week I can finalize the financing (figuring 30 days back from last day of window.) So, I’m good there. Just one question: WHERE’S MY F****** CAR?
