I'm surprised that I'm the first one to mention this.
Received a VIN last night with an estimated delivery window of 13-27 Feb. Also received a text later about picking it up from a "unique location" with more details to follow within 24 hours.
Must admit that I have no interest in picking it up from anywhere other than Thorpe Park since its extremely convenient for me to get there.
Excellent! I've decided to hold off for the moment and wait for the 2nd batch. Part-ex value on our M3 was a little disappointing compared to what they are advertised for on Autotrader and I don't have time or inclination to do anything else right now.
Not in a rush to change so June timeframe would work well for us.
Loads of videos of people doing collections of the model 3 at the same place. Downside is, if it rains then you’re screwed… but then that’s the same for any car collection.sounded like on the dockside, straight from container ... google suggests southampton pick up is outside - would that be ok to allow a run over of the vehicle.
Out of interest, how much below retail were they offering? Did you try and get a price out of WBAC for it? I'm really interested in how Teslas are trading on the used market at the moment. The trade doesn't seem to know what it wants to value them at.
If you are buying it with your own money/finance they wait, but if you're leasing it then it'll make no difference to your costs (re-sale value).Still debating whether to collect mine from Southampton on 19/02 or push it to March and then deal with trying to collect it whilst abroad for a week. I haven't had a car since May so it's very tempting to get it ASAP.
I have until 18h00 today to decide.
If you are buying it with your own money/finance they wait, but if you're leasing it then it'll make no difference to your costs (re-sale value).
Have they explicitly told you that if you reject the Feb date you'll 100% get it in March?
That is what would worry me,. You might find with the spec you ordered that you have to wait 3 months if you reject it.
Not me personally because I haven’t asked, but other people have.
