    I went with metallic blue. Did you stay with black paint?

    My order was placed ~7:30 PM (CDT). Do you remember when you put your order in?

    I went with the simple, standard range. Did you or the next one up with electric seats?

    I also went with standard Autopilot. Did you or the navigation version?

    Since you are in California, I expect you will get yours first. Alabama does not have a Tesla store and the nearest one is Nashville, TN.

    Thanks,
    Bob Wilson

    Yes black, no autopilot, no options/upgrades. Just getting the manual adjustable seats. Getting bare bones at $35k.

    Placed order at 3:45-4:00 PST – didn’t remember exact time, but confirmed when my credit card company immediately sent me an email after the $2.5k initial order payment to verify not fraudulent.

    My gut feeling is that they will ship out first to those who spent a few extra bucks on options like yourself, but glad to be able to compare with your order here to watch for actual delivery time.

    In light of the announcement last night that they will be raising prices I will likely be making my order on the 17th (right before they raise prices).

    Monday, Mar 11 I completed all of my paperwork. Now we're waiting on a VIN and date so I can kick off the loan and insurance.

    but you do breathe polluted air caused by hybrid ice engines which is more deadly than smoking.....had you read the link.

    Must buy Tesla, save ourselves! Electromagnetic fields will have no harm on us in the future.

    While this is true, I can only control what vehicle I buy.
    I can, and have, tried to influence vehicles bought by school districts, municipalities, etc, but direct control? Only mine.

    Don’t know why people are talking about Tesla in a “Priuschat” forum?

    Prius is a gateway drug to plug-in and pure EVs. <grins>

    Generally, Prius people are independent, often clever thinkers who are not easily fooled by critics. We've been that way since the Gen-1 arrived in November 2001. Many have already moved on from the Prius and I'm headed that way too. But I'm not finding similar personal skills in the Tesla forums ... so far. With a rare exception, Tesla owning, Prius people who still post here have been sensible about NOT becoming Tesla trolls.
