Delivery in 10 hours, how am I supposed to sleep?!


read my Model S delivery checklist - there's enough there to put you to sleep. :-)

Enjoy your Tesla grin!

@Nick I've already memorized it! Thanks for keeping it up to date, I know I really appreciate having it!

I took Benadryl several nights leading up to delivery...

lol @orwa i think i will be taking a few melatonin to help me

No drugs.
And remember if you do not sleep now your are doomed to sleep through the best first ride of your life.

nickjhowe, GREAT answer. Funniest thing I have read all week.

Reilly, Since you already know the checklist, just go stand by their door and wait on them. That will teach them to keep you waiting.

@nickjhowe Whoa, thanks for that incredible checklist!

Thanks for the laugh.

I could not sleep the night after delivery. At 5:00 a.m. the next day, I was out of bed and heading to the garage to go for a drive. the excitement never gets old.

Ambien is what I did. Wanted to be fresh to enjoy that day!!!

Haha I had a great delivery in Bellevue this morning. Everything was ready to go and super quick. No issues with the car! Can't stop smiling!!! I just fell in love

@ Reilly McHugh, can you make any comments on build quality?

@Amped Everything looks great, drives amazing. Already sold one :) no issues that I have seen reported on here with my car yet. Looked like 5 or 6 other cars were ready to go out. Vin P14061

very curious about build quality too...numerous threads suggesting vastly improved over early VINs (I'm P045xx). Everything from spacing between doors/trunk/frunk/headliner/lights, etc, etc. Has there been any change in the location of the weather stripping in the frunk/trunk i wonder as those areas seem to collect water because the lining isn't up against the edge of each piece...any insight here would be very interesting...

Oh, and congrats on the delivery :), enjoy!

Are you on the Eastside? If so another good tint place is Accutint in Bellevue. They're just East of Barrier Porsche.

Congrats on the delivery!


Wormhole, I am not that familiar with the earlier models but I went thru with a fine tooth comb and couldn't find anything anybody had previously mentioned on the forums. I do have 21"s tho so I will be interested in the wear pattern but am not too concerned about that. I couldn't be happier. Thanks to tesla for a great car.

@goneskiian I am in Seattle but don't mind the long drive to Bellevue now!!! Ill check it out too, although I kind of like the non tinted look and I've always had dark windows...tbd

@amped all my clients have loved the car. so far 2 are going to try to buy loaners. I really need to buy some stock after seeing the response this car gets!

Let me know if I can answer any questions. My average energy consumption is 530whm lol I'm charging now!

P.s written on phone (sorry for typos/grammar)

Hey Reilly, I was averaging 600 wh/m during my first week with da mistress (MC red).

Now that I've settled a bit and it is down to around 450's.

Give it time and you'll me more efficient (or not)...

I'm also in the Puget Sound area and I can generally keep it at just under 300 Wh/mi (sometimes even better) for a day's worth of driving, and that still includes a bit of spirited driving now and then.

So unless you just like doing that all the time, I think you'll be able to reign it in after the initial honeymoon period.

Yay - congrats Reilly! It's great to hear that you had a flawless delivery. Have fun with your new baby. :)

All I want to do is drive!!


I've had my car for about a month. I was a virtual recluse. I didn't like driving much, and driving for little errands was the last thing on my mind.

I find an excuse to drive around every day. It's still a joy. It's somehow more like an amusement park ride that gets you to the grocery store.

We understand Henry!

My husband has ran more errands for me in the last 2 months (since delivery) than he has in 21 years of marriage! Truly!
He called me from work yesterday close to lunch time asking if I've picked up our son yet? Not yet, I reply. I'll get him, he says. He drives 14 miles to pick him up, another 18 miles to bring him home and 4 miles back to work. He is bummed he only has a 4 mile commute to work every day.

I'll have some errands this morning as we prepare for family to come over and BBQ and I know I won't hear one word of resistance. :-))

It's fabulous! Tesla where have you been all my life?? I'm at home grinning and I'm not even in the car!

Lovin it!
Jackie :-)

Reilly, Congrats on the delivery of your new baby! Sounds like you're not getting any sleep AFTER either ;)

Model S....improving marriages and the enviroment and other. XD

Hilarious and great, simultaneously! Tesla turns husbands into on-demand pick-up and delivery services. Elon should mention that in passing in an interview or two. ;)

Maybe he's keeping an eye out for more distant employment! The universe is topsy-turvy.

rein, not reign. Think horses, not kings.

I love this thread. My #1 frustration with my current car - an F-150 - is that it's such a pain to do errands. I actively avoid them and dread doing them. It's just such a hassle to park and navigate shopping centers. It's very heartening to hear that soon that feeling might be reversed. :)
