Alright, here we go…
I ordered a Model 3 SR+ 10 days ago because we might need a 2nd car starting mid-2022. I said ‘might’ because it’s also possible we don’t need a 2nd car at all. In that case, I would just forfeit the $250 order fee or flip it if there is a profit w the new EV tax incentive.
When I placed the order, the SR+ w no add-ons has a delivery date of Oct. 2022. So I added black exterior paint to the order - bumping the delivery date to Jun. 2022.
Two days later, I received a delivery date of Feb. 2022 so I called my local Tesla store and asked them to remove the black exterior paint - hoping to push back the delivery date.
Fast forward to today, I found my M3 SR+ delivery date has been updated to Dec. 19 - Dec. 31, 2021!!!
I heard Tesla allows you to hold delivery for 90 days. Is it possible to push beyond that because of their wildly inaccurate estimated delivery date which is 10 months earlier than expected? I’m definitely not going to take delivery before April next year as we don’t need a 2nd car until June.
