    Perhaps a bit premature to discuss, but if we do place a firm order do we get a VIN number right away and can we track the car as it moves through the assembly line? The only time I've bought a new car built to my spec was a 2002 BMW and they provided a nice little owners web portal that let me see where it was in the process -- from in the queue, to on the boat. It wasn't a particularly granular view and I (unrealistically) wanted to see updates and details throughout each day. Nevertheless, it was a really fun few days thinking about my new car. I'm wondering if this is standard practice with Tesla models and something we can expect on Model 3?

    With the current cars (so presume will be the same) the VIN shows up when the car is coming up for production, not immediately after your order is confirmed. So depends on how soon from the time of order confirmation until production.

    I had the same experience when we purchased our Mini Cooper and that was almost 11 years ago.

    A more basic question:

    I placed my reservation and did receive a confirming e-mail aong with an ID number. But I have received nothing since.

    Is that what others have experienced? According to the delivery tracker, I am still well over a year away from delivery, so I'm not expecting any directive to identify my choices. Again ... is that what others are experiencing?

    you can always login to your MyTesla page for reasurance that your order is happily sitting there, but yes. There has not been any correspondance specific to the reservations since the initial confirmation email.

    Right, every so often, as much as once or twice per week, I do exactly that (have now done so for close to 9 months now !), and keep on thinking, since there is so little change to the text, that it would be nice if they would change that blue color, that would also 'shake it up a little' ... :D

    So does anyone know who SN1 is delivering to? I'm excited to hear the first one should be officially rolling off the line today.
