Well, after you order your car, the wait begins. If you're like me, you'll check your My Tesla link (above photo) daily to see if anything has happened. Sadly...it has not.
After the three day grace period ends your My Tesla page will look like the above, and you'll get an email saying your order is locked in and set. Key highlights on the My Tesla page are that you will have been assigned a Delivery Specialist (DS) in your area, and on the bottom right you can also see a predicted delivery timeline. It's quite a broad range of dates.
I'm told that the DS is really your go-to guy or gal when it comes to anything and everything involving the delivery of your car. I'm guessing that the DS will keep me informed, help set up a delivery date and time once things get closer, and generally be my 'friend' through the process. I did email my DS to say hello and inquire if she had any insight or more accurate delivery timing insight...but I have not been worthy enough to command a response. Time will tell huh?
Rumor has it that the DS can pull up info on your specific order and see what date the predicted build might start. That would be cool to know...the car's birthday.
Aditionally, you will also get links on the My Tesla page to all kinds of documents. The most exciting (if you can call it exciting) is a link to the Owner's Manual. I've started to go through it to get familiar with some of the sections.
Stay tuned, I'll keep this up-to-date when I know more.
