    Can't wait to get my Model 3! I'll likely be one of the first in Western NC getting theirs, fingers crossed!
    December - February delivery.

    Anyone else in the Area?

    Welcome to the forum!! When did you reserve?

    You may see some floating around before you get yours. Existing Tesla customers will start to see cars toward late October and people that waited in line early before the unveiling see a range of November - January on the first production.

    Cheers to electric cars everywhere soon!!

    I wasn't able to stand in line at a store, but I ordered as soon as it was possible online. 30 minutes before the presentation if I remember correctly. In my town specifically I've rarely seen a Telsa. I think we have a couple Model Xs floating around. Most are north near Asheville, but still not many.

    I live in Hendersonville too. Welcome to the forum! I reserved at the same time, and have the same delivery window but am holding for awd. (I travel to the midwest each winter at least once). I look forward to seeing your car! My awd window is September-November, 2018.

    Wow, small world! Are you in the Western North Carolina Tesla Owners Facebook page yet?
    Will be looking forward to your 3 around town as well! Once I receive mine, shoot me a message and I'll be glad to let you see if it you haven't yet already!

    I am a retired circuit court judge (from Wisconsin), so I avoid Facebook. Not everyone likes me. I would appreciate a chance to see your car and will certainly post the day I get mine.

    Ah understandable, but if I'm not mistaken, was that you that just joined the WNC Tesla Owners page?
    I'm hoping we can have a big meet up on the Parkway. :D

    My wife convinced me that is was safe enough! Anyway, a Tesla fanboy wins over a cautious judge!

    I hear that!
    Just go through Facebook's security settings and you should be able to lock your account down so no one can search you.

    Hello Rocco! I live just down the mountain from you in Greenville, SC! I have a May-July '18 delivery date. I was a little late to the party, but I don't mind the extra time to save up for down payment funds.

    @pjfw8 , did we meet at the Asheville National Drive Electric Week show last weekend? My wife and I seem to remember talking to a couple from Wisconsin about model 3 reservations.

    I'm in Chapel Hill but my daughter lives in Asheville. I'm late to the M3 party and did not reserve until July, 2017. I drank the cool aid after a trip to Scandinavia and was blown away in Norway after seeing all the Teslas and other EVs plus the fantastic EV charging infrastructure. Drove an MX in Raleigh and that set the hook for the M3. Looking forward to hearing about the first M3 in NC. This site is fantastic - didn't realize all the stuff I should be obsessed about while I wait.
