    Idiots should just distribute them at the service centers... Not worth creating the friction of driving up there.

    I've been told its around $12,000 on platforms like Carousell, which is cheaper, but apparently an agent HAS to provide you with the quota/car. Whereas someone on carousell can run away with your money on technicalities such as the quota having been expired by the time your car arrives etc.
    We were about to pull the trigger for a Model Y with the intention of scrapping our 2015 Q5 until my mechanic told us about the quota. How can you tell between agents and private 'sellers'?

    Our mechanic has offered to find someone with a quota and help to sell out current car (with commission of course). It's all new to me so I'm trying to find more information and understand the process better. Wouldn't you be at risk for a period of time where we're not the official owner but we've paid for a new car?

    Cheers

    My advice is to order the Model Y and have the sales person/delivery specialist from Tesla recommend you an agent/seller who can give you the one for one quota. Thats how it worked for me anyways.

    But to be very honest, there are lots of quota agents/sellers online and judging by reviews, they seem reliable for the most part. Just make sure you pay them AFTER everything has been confirmed and settled. I.e. they will need to accompany you to sign documents at the Tesla dealership once your Tesla is ready for delivery.

    As for whether or not you're the "official" owner, thats where I found it a very grey area. When we went to sign the documents and make the full payment, the one for one quota person was also required to be there and sign certain documents to confirm the application of the quota. For the most part, those were government forms that they filled out/signed but I was not shown them in detal as I had my own forms to fill out and sign.

    Then after car payment was made and forms were signed by us both, I was told I needed to go pay $1300 to a third party company called "HK Lucky Number". They literally had a table inside the Tesla dealership with a representative sitting there. I was told that they would handle everything including applying for a license plate number (random plate number for me) and also "help ensure all documents are submitted and car to be transferred to my name". This is their website: 香港幸運車牌

    Once your vehicle registration document has been approved and sent to Tesla by the transportation department (in a week or two), the Tesla delivery specialist may contact you and request for the one for one quota person to sign over the car (although they said it wasn't technically necessary).

    I apologise if this is confusing and seems shady, but I never got a straight answer from Tesla despite asking several times. I suppose its a bit of a grey area? Maybe someone else can clarify and also share their experiences during the delivery process to compare.

    What I can say is that from the day I took physical delivery of the car, the vehicle registration document was under my name with absolutely no issues whatsoever. Just that you wont be a "zero" owner on the registration document, but rather "1" owner.

    “The Agent” is listed as the “Zero” Owner

    The Vehicle Registration Document will show you as the “First” Owner i.e. you are the Second Owner of the vehicle.
    Yes that is the only "drawback" for such an arrangement.

    But I think everyone knows the deal if you're going to sell your car a few years down the line. It shouldn't (hopefully) affect the price.

    That's very helpful - thanks.

    Sounds like I can place the order with Tesla before securing a quota agent/seller. Now got to convince the boss for the green light

    In terms of insurance, do most people go through InsureMyTesla (Liberty Insurance) - they seem to be the most competitive after a bit of research.

    Cheers

    Would also like to know if this is the current best insurance choice.

    I also went thru the same process and had convinced the boss for the green light and ordered ($2000) a White(Black)Y-LR this week.

    Got an email today about the random specialist and the upcoming procedures.

    Is this email just an automated email after ordering or an actual good news that there is progress (i.e. on schedule shipments)?

    Awesome - I think I'm close to getting the go ahead too.

    Are you using someone's quota for the 1-for-1?

    No we aren't. If this was the case I don't think I could have persuaded the boss for the green light.

    Hope you get your green light soon!
