I have difficulties to understand this reservation system. Not the mechanisms of it but the aspect of priority.
Despite what I can see on the Tesla locator map, I have no store in Quebec City (we have an icon showing a "store and gallery" but the Montreal store confirmed to me that they are the only place to take reservations in person.
So, as a ICE owner, I would have to drive 2x350km to get to the Montreal store just to make that deposit if I want to have a better place in the delivery line-up. Plus the day off to take, just for doing the trip.
This appears to me like counter-intuitive (even if I understand the fact that already owners would make a big tally this day near the store), especially just for a better delivery #.
Are we sure that's the only advantage of going in store ?
It's not because I am far from this store that I am not a bigger fan of Tesla than the others, so i feel like being "discriminated" (note the "").
Is there any way to improve this experience ?
Edit : Montreal Store told me that the number in Quebec City is just for Model S tests drive reservations. So one person, no store or gallery.
