Any others in Dallas?
I just picked up my car on Monday, loving every moment of it. But I haven't gotten my paperwork to get the tags from Tesla yet? Did you guys wait long?
How's the limited 60 feel? Are you on 4.5 already?
I called and harassed them and finally they expedited it and overnighted it - I got it within a day or two of getting the car.
I am scheduled to pick up my Model S next week! I am looking into insurance and wondering which companies you recommend? Thanks.
Congratulions Marek.Koenig! I saw your WHITE TESLA Saturday afternoon.
Hope you did not mind, I took several photos, since I too ordered White.
I received a FEDEX envelope with my temporary registration.
One of these days I may try an Austin to Dallas/Fort Worth trip, especially when we have a Supercharger enroute. Any recommendations for places to charge in the area? Is there a HPWC at the service center? Hotels with charging stations?
I have the Plugshare, Recargo, Chargepoint, and Blink apps.
@markapeterman Thank! Yes, I received the car with 4.5 and got another over the air update last night. I didn't notice any differences, and the change log still says 4.5. The "40" feels great, tons of power.
@ramtaz Thanks! I don't mind at all, there were quite a lot of cars there when I came for the pickup.
Just received email my MODEL S is on the truck heading to TEXAS!.
App will not locate ,since mobile access is not turned on from vehicles touchscreen.
May arrive late next week. Not sure what is required in "prepping".
Seems like yesterday that I made my reservation.
Picked up my white Model S from the Dallas SC on 5/22 and added tint yesterday. Our 240v outlet works great - charging at about 30mph! It's still surreal knowing it's finally in our garage.
Everything was perfect on delivery except the driver side rear door alignment was slightly off. Service will take care of it when I'm ready to bring it in.
@ramtaz - your car may be ready earlier in the week. Mine arrived in the evening and was ready for pick up the next day in the afternoon. Just depends on their schedule.
@rebeccap88 AWESOME! I just did not want them to RUSH the prep. Where did you get your TINT?
How long was the delivery process? I assume 2 hours to cover most basic things and inspection.
What was your range at delivery? How many miles on odometer?
Thank you for your feedback! I too, only have the 240v plug.
My delivery window is 6/7 to 6/30 (notified on 5/16). Sounds like the current experience is in the first week of the delivery window, does that sound right? @rebeccap88 and @ramtaz, what were your timeframes from delivery window notification to when the car was on the truck?
And which one of you own a blue and has a kid at Armstrong? I've seen you around HP the last week or so and got a picture texted to me from my girlfriend from the car pool lane at Armstrong ... you're making me jealous! :-))
@ramtaz - I got my tint at Lonestar Window Tinting in Hurst. You're right, the delivery process took about 2 hours. Glover was great! We had about 140 range, almost full & 16mi on the odometer.
@therealmach3 - Congrats on your Tesla! There was about 3 full weeks from delivery button until notification of car on truck. Took delivery 4 days before the start of my delivery window.
txjak - Downtown, I believe that the new Omni (at the Convention Center), Aloft and Zaza all have charging stations. Hotel Lumen and Hotel Palomar near SMU both also claim to have charging stations.

I can confirm Zaza and Lumen both. Valet will plug it in for you if you want.
@rebeccap88 I live in Grapevine and Hurst is much closer than Speed Shield in Addison.
Thank you very much for the information.
@therealmach3 I received Delivery email April 27, with Delivery window May 27-June 10.
I received MODEL S is coming email May 11, and set the delivery appointment slot for June 3.
Paperwork and Payment complete email arrived May 23, and I was advised car on transport to Dallas.
Also ,that it may arrive earlier. I placed my reservation three years ago.
So awesome to hear of everyone getting their Model S and enjoying them. This of course means more sightings around town such as the white one I saw parked just a few spaces from my blue one at Brookhaven Country Club yesterday.
Does anyone know if you automatically get a two year inspection sticker since it is a new car or do you specifically have to request it?
You get a one year inspection sticker only. I believe two years are available only to car dealers.
Just got my email ,My Model S is ready for pick up May 29! I must be dreaming!
Jerry3 thanks for the response. That is what I was worried about.
Picked my up May 23rd and need to get it inspected and registered. Loving it so far and had no issues with the police.
WOW WOW WOW AND AMAZING! I picked up my TESLA MODEL S today at 4pm
, DALLAS SERVICE CENTER< Glover covered everything and I believe I can remember 50%
of all the GEEK stuff . I finally took my TEST DRIVE home to GRAPEVINE and the worst feeling
overcame my TESLA GRIN, I was heading into a severe thunderstorm, with hail!
As soon as the first strikes of hail hit my brand new TESLA MODEL S , I became determined
to find shelter fast,the sounds of hail hitting my pano roof was not very pleasant!
I was by a park and found the biggest tree and waited for the storm to pass, all the while praying the tree would not get hit by lightning and crash on me and my TESLA!
I made it home after a short 20 minutes that seemed like hours, I was watching the storms pass
on the weather website on my 17 inch screen. CRAZY !! I know the PANO did not get damaged , not sure about the body since the water drops were all over the car.
TESLA is in the garage charging, I am afraid to look in the morning.
@ramtaz congrats! Hopefully your car is fine after being beated up with hail. How large were the hail?
What was the original estimate for your delivery date?
@therealmach3/ THANK YOU ! hail was dime to nickel , but a quarter found my hood and left a minor
ding. PANO ROOF looks fine. The sounds of the hail hitting pano still ringing in my head!
Original delivery estimate was May 27-June 10.
Here's my 40 (software reduced 60) taken today. I LOVE this car!
Not sure how to post the photo. I'll try once more.
Thank goodness for volkerize :)
Rebeccap88: congratulations. I picked up my 40 white with black roof/tech/air susp on May 23rd. It just keeps getting better. Glad you are enjoying it as much.
Jerry3. I went to got my state inspection done at Sewell Lexus and without asking got the two year sticker. It's not that big of a deal, but one my favorite things about the Model S is the reduced maintenance schedule. Maybe dealships will give you a two year sticker? What is everyone else's experience.
@Rebeccap88/ very NICE PICTURE!! I like the window TINT!
Lincoln - got 1 yr at Kwik Kar
Thank you LincolnP and ramtaz!
I had my inspection done at Nissan. Received 2yr sticker without asking for it.
Inspection at Park Place Mercedes, one year sticker.
