I don't want to put a damper on this, but the group in Dallas say that rewards can take up to 9 months to ship. It will be the best thing ever the day it arrives, because you will long have forgotten about it.
Well that helps, I’ll forget about now and time will fly!

IIRC I had a referral in December, just got my signature WC beginning of August. Not sure if it’s worth the effort to swap out my Gen 1 HPWC. If the Signature supports multiple WCs, maybe I can hang the HPWC off the Signature while I wait for Elon’s pickup truck.

Would’ve rather gotten a Powerwall. :)

I had to go look - I was off by a month - Fahad on Facebook posted:
My referral gift Signature charger just arrived, only after 8 months.
Maybe the only saving grace is that no one got them, so perhaps now they have them and you get them faster....? I guess we'll see!

From what I’ve seen, this is SOP with all rewards. Luggage, wheels, WCs, radio flyer cars, etc... they are eventually delivered, but don’t be watching your doorstep.

Wait you only need one referral for the black wall connector? I thought you needed five?

I don’t know how long these take to ship, but my first referral took delivery today and I placed my order for the signature black wall connector. Saaaaweet!!!!
Did you get it yet?

My first referral just got their car delivered, so this week i ordered the signature black WC. (The referral car order was before the October 4 cutoff date, and hence my referral is in the ~previous~ program.)
Am also wondering if they've caught up on the backlog, or its still like an 8 month wait.
The fine print for the current referral program is "shipping in waves starting in November 2018". (Oh.. that's now!)
So, i'm thinking i'm either at the tail end of the last program wait list, or at the front end of the current program.

However... I suspect with the onslaught of model 3 deliveries, it might be more like years.
Otoh.. the referral person i used for my model 3 already had a signature WC, and (I think) ended up with a early invite for solar roof.
So.. maybe there is hope.

Wow time flies, this was 10 weeks ago already. Sadly, no updates to the status since placing the order.

Has anyone determined the durability of Elon's signature? Is it really just a silver sharpie or is it silk screened? I would be mounting outside in the elements so would like to find a way to protect it. Maybe a matte clear spray paint.

He didn't sign every damn one of them, he only has 24 hours/day like the rest of us! Not sure of the process used to put it on there though.

I ordered mine last week and I really need it for our ski cabin. I need to mount it on a pedestal away from the cabin. It's basically going to be outdoors in a rain forest so I would like it to be a pedestal with a roof to keep the needles and leaves off it. The 15 amp 120V outlet is not cutting it. I only average 4 mi/hr and if I turn on the defrost before I leave it starts drawing my miles down.
