Has anyone with a Signature Reservation configured your Model S yet?

Has anyone with a Signature Reservation configured your Model S yet?

In order to deliver the 5000 2012 Model S vehicles in the 5.5 months or 169 days between 15JUL2012 and 31DEC2012 Tesla must produce 29.586 cars a day and to keep the 90 day "Configure to Delivery" timeframe documented on the Facts page of teslamotors.com, Signature Model S Reservation #1 through Signature Model S Reservation #29 should have been configured on 15APR2012. So as of today, 03MAY2012 or 18 days later, Signature Model S Reservation Holder #1 through Signature Model S Reservation Holder #532 should have been contacted by Tesla to sign a MVPA, put up the non-refundable down payment and configure their Signature Model S with a Tesla Configuration Specialist.

Has anyone of the first 532 Signature Model S Reservation Holders signed your MVPA, made your deposit and configured your 2012 Signature Model S? Care to share your experience with the rest of us Reservation Holders so that we can know what to expect?

If none of the first 532 Signature Model S Reservation Holders have been contacted as of today, Tesla is already 18 days behind schedule and unless they can catch up, only 4468 of the 2012 Tesla Model S cars will be manufactured and delivered in calendar year 2012.

Sorry... I just noticed I forgot the "A". LOL! Like I said before, it's been one heck of a 24hrs for me.

@Olanmills. Yep, you're locking yourself in. You can still back out, but $10,000 of the deposit is now non-refundable.

ViewAskew;
For some reason my first-glance read of your sentence offered me "one heck of a 24 liters for me." Pix of 6 gallons of wine or vodka flashed through my head. Apologies.

I'm Sig #963 and was contacted by phone back around 6/15. I received the preliminary quote and the MVPA on 6/19. The MVPA indicated a delivery date of September 2012.
