    Been unplugged for a bit, damn job. Hello again. I've had my address on the My Tesla site as a Los Angeles address since last year because I knew I was moving here. I now occupy said address for the time being. I have very close family that just moved to the bay area to work at a big tech company. My temptation is to use their address as my reservation address in hopes of bettering my chances and getting to pick it up near or at the factory sooner. Is that a dumb idea? Will I be required to register the car at that address and create a big hassle for myself? Love to hear your thoughts if you know a bit about how Tesla works. I really want to pick it up at or near the factory and road trip it home.

    May have answered my own question. Language on the FAQ mentions registration specifically. I'm sure I'm not the first one to think of this. So would I just be making trouble for myself registering it up there?

    FAQ
    Where can I take delivery of my Model 3?

    We will assign you a delivery location based on your registration address after you’ve confirmed your order.

    Honestly I'm not sure what happens if you change the address to an address that's not yours.

    Best bet is to call your closest Tesla showroom and inquire about delivery and pickup options.

    I would guess they will spread the deliveries around in CA to kind of equalize the new burden on Service Centers with early adopters. It's possible you might actually be better off in L.A., since there are already going to be so many deliveries to Tesla employees in the Bay Area. Of course, Tesla (and SpaceX) have lots of employees in L.A. too, so who knows. This is all speculation and we just know CA will be first! :cool::D

      From what I've seen on the forum atleast for the time being it seems like people that lets say lived in California but have since moved to New York show something much closer to a typical California delivery time. This could change but it seems like right now the address that was used to create the reservation dictates the place in line.

      Well I hope that observation doesn't remain true. Since I did the opposite. Starting in NY and moving to CA.

      Could always make a second reservation as of today and see what the delivery is like and cancel it if its a worse date. It's probably a later date but they seem to be delivering to the US before anyone else based on what my own Day1 date looks like.
