Yep, I received Invitation to Configure in my email a few hours ago. I also called Robert but he has not called back. He did not stand in line last March so his order in the queue is a little lower.
I selected the "hold my place in line" option, specifying that I wanted dual motor drive, and selecting a delivery date of July 2018 from a list.
I am somewhat troubled by the recent reports of :
1. Fit & finish flaws, but these reports are for cars at least partially hand-built, so they don't necessarily mean much.
2. Comment that the initial welding video Elon posted showed robotic progress but poor weld quality. Hopefully robotic assembly can be fine-tuned by next July. Bad welds would not be good.
There are recent reports https://electrek.co/2017/11/10/tesla-au ... apability/
that Auto Pilot 2 is getting slowly better, with a major improvement coming "real soon" (Elon time). I have stated I will not get another Tesla unless it has hardware and software good enough for near autonomous highway driving for both city traffic and inter city driving.
I am also thinking an alternative choice to getting a Model 3 would be a late 2016 CPO MS 90 with AP 2 that I could get a year from now if AP 2 software was working well. Not sure what the price difference would be. For this choice I would probably give up the dual motor.
