    Is it true that RHD Tesla M3 deliveries will begin after Europe deliveries finished? (Source Tesla UK manager told to one of the m3 reservation holders in Birmingham)

    If yes we're looking at like 2019 for first M3 to arrive in UK.

    It is quite a bit of wait, I know British people have no issues with waiting but isn't it something that you think a bit of unfairness going on? Punishment for driving on the other side of the road :)

    Note : Only the advantage of being last in the delivery schedule is that; Tesla will rectify the possible minor issues that might pop up with the first series of production defects.

    The truth is no one knows at this stage. Elon has said that the first full year of production is already taken so I take it to mean if you order your car today, it will definitely be after mid to late 2018 that you get your car. That also could mean if you have already ordered, then it is possible you may get your car before end of 2018.

    Beyond that, I'd say don't get the opinion of anyone with a conflict of interest. That ranges from Tesla UK employees who would rather see you buy a Model S today to someone in a forum secretly hoping and wishing that they get their car before everyone else.

      We are in Australia. We placed our orders ahead of everyone else in the world and we likely will be the last ones to receive our cars. I'm just hoping it'll be 2018 rather than 2019. Our poor old cars may not last that long! lol

        I popped into a store yesterday and was told that even if you ordered today you would receive your Model 3 by the end of 2018. First right hand drive deliveries expected Q1 2018. Sounds a bit optimistic to me!

          This would be good news for us. We didn't expect to see our car until the end of 2018 if we were lucky. I phoned our Queensland office and they had no information of the kind but that is not to say that it could happen. It will all depend on how Peter Hochholdinger has production on target!

          I'm torn, I want one tomorrow but the longer I wait the more cash I can throw at it. Paid software upgrades galore, multi coat paint job...

          Really?

          Every Tesla person I have spoken to suggests 2019 at the very earliest (for RHD)

          You are right of course. Note that @Cherub 's post dates from last November... Since the delivery estimator appeared on the T≡SLA website, 1Q19 has been mentioned as generic indication for all RHD markets... to be confirmed later next year as the ramp up progresses!

          Lol!

          never like filling in DOB on forums, too many get hacked etc.

          that said, that pic is a few years old now, it just makes a great thumbnail.

            not age so much as DOB, it is used here (UK) as one of the key verification details.

            So, IMHO why take the risk?

            If you're that interested, I am past my half century...

              Our poor old car didn't last that long! Someone rear ended us and totalled the car. Fortunately, I was able to buy a 2001 Mercedes E240 with half the mileage of our 97 Camry for an extra $1g above what the insurance gave us. We should last the distance now especially if Elon's tweet that a run of RHD will come in the northern hemisphere summer of 2018. My guess is that could slip a little depending on production is ramped up.
