So nice ! Exactly the same I would be happy to order when it will be available in France.
If you have other photos It will help me to convince my wife that “deep blue” is marvelous.
Many thanks in advance ...

congrats!!! where did you take delivery?
@Samsaggace We actually drove to Houston from NOLA to pick it up this past weekend. Were told originally we'd get a 45-minute walk through. Ended up with half that, but I understand. They're trying to move these suckuhs out! We did get to stay in a nice hotel and enjoy the pool before picking up our beauty and head back back to NOLA.

I would recommend getting it delivered if you're driving a little ways.

And if she doesn't go for the outside, check out the shot of the panoramic window my wife took with my son in the back seat.

Hi Doug Joubert, Congrats! I like the shot at Buc-ees, hope you went in the store even though you didn't need the gas. A true Texas experience. Not sure if they have them in LA yet. I have the same Model 3 color and wheels (although I took the covers off), love it!

@Model3VT Yeah, good call on that blue. The simulation on the website isn't even close to what it is in real life.

I'm thinking about taking off those aero wheel covers. The rims underneath are gorgeous! My wife, though, likes the way our car looks already, so I'm gonna probably lose that modification.

As for Buc-ees, we've always just driven past it. This time, I could not resist just stopping there. We took the pic and my wife and son went inside for some cinnamon rolls. Pretty darn good! While we were at Buc-ees, there was a mini-car show in the parking lot with hoods popped open that afternoon. If we weren't in such a rush to get back on the road and enjoy our Model 3, I would have joined them and popped my frunk. :)

havent placed the order yet, but trying to decide between houston or atlanta. Thought about home delivery. just worried about if there is any issues with the car since i am so far away from a SC.
hopefully the NOLA SC will be open by the end of the year

I want to see those pics next year, @Samsaggace
I had the same jubilation when we picked up our Model 3. It’s more then a car. We are all joined at the hep as we all went out on a limb and trusted Tesla and they came through is spades. I had the same experience when we picked up our M3 as I was expecting a demo of 30- 40 minutes wound up 15 minutes and they also were moving M3s like crazy.

@jvmoore1 We were torn between getting it in Houston from NOLA or getting it delivered to us in NOLA. We had heard a few horror stories about what the car looked like when it was delivered, and worried about it. Plus, our sales person had said he’d be spending 45-minutes to an hour with us (which didn’t pan out).

We’re hoping that new SC is open in NOLA by the end of this year. It’d be nice to have something closer to us than Houston.

Truth be told, it was nice to get away, see the beautiful Houston Service Center, swim in the pool with my 11-year old son, and just make it something even more special than it already was going to be. Though I would not recommend it now because of the shortened delivery time, it was great for us.

@Upstater Yep. I have never felt more happy or proud to be an owner of an automobile. Yes, Tesla is a company that is designed to make money. However, it’s designed to make money while making the products we buy friendly to our planet. I have waited for this car since the first time I saw a Roadster many moons ago. I revel every time I touch the accelerator. I snicker to myself when I pass a gas station. I love to plug in my car and think to myself how much money I am saving and how I am helping my planet’s environment.

Sorry, got on the soap box for a moment there. I’ll climb off now. :)

I agree Doug, the technology is amazing, the speed is amazing, the silence is amazing and, yet, it is better for the environment. I still can't believe I am lucky enough to be driving one. I had pretty much talked myself out of it due to the cost even though I have also been a Tesla fan for years. My SO did not let me give up the dream and convinced me it was still a valid purchase due to the gas savings, tax break, and frequent updates. Did I mention the safety? It just goes on...
