What is the time delay have you experienced or been told between factory pick up vs home delivery? Particularly interested in those within California.
I've been told that since I'm in the Bay Area, tesla wouldn't need to use a third party to do home delivery for me, so there wouldn't be a significant time difference between picking it up vs. having it delivered. If you're close enough to the factory, they're apparently willing to just stick it on a small flatbed and bring it themselves.
I'm thinking if it's just a day or two difference for me being in Southern California (i.e. Irvine), I'll take home delivery. If I get it a week sooner with factory delivery, I'm definitely going that route.
I was told my Model S was loaded on the truck Dec 31. Delivered to my driveway in Northern VA Jan 9. (For the East coast folks).
