    Best you check with Tesla exactly what you need to provide them for the FRT waiver.
    I am in contact with Tesla, there is still a bit time (so they say). I plan to drive my car for as long as possible. For the new car, there is no update beyond the initial "probably end of year".
    The scrap certificate comes on from scrap yards? So I guess I need to pay to scrap then?

    Yes.

    Not always, you may get few 100s or 1000s depends on the quality of your car, but don't count on it.

    They are delivering about 200 cars per day at the moment (20 per hour) in HK:

    I was offered $15,000 by a scrap yard for my 9 year old car that would otherwise sell for $40,000 to a garage.

    A friend's (crashed) 10+ year old Japanese car still fetched $3,000... so don't underestimate the value of your unwanted clump of metal!

    Thank you for your warm words. I got rear ended in April (topic matching - by a Tesla) and my car is now shorter on one side. I was quoted repair cost of 25000 - the insurance estimated the car value at 15000.

    You need to drive physically to a scrap yard or how does it work?

    I'm sure there have been previous Geo threads regarding vehicle repair, but you should always be prepared to argue with insurance: their default position is to pay as little as possible. Ask them where you can get the vehicle repaired or replaced at their estimate; otherwise it's a disingenuous offer. Some garages also know the usual tricks... so you can ask them nicely to rebate you some of the cost. To bridge the final gap, there's always the small claims tribunal. Ultimately, if you are proven to be at zero fault, there's really no reason at all you should be out of pocket.

    That said... for scrapping, try sending a WhatsApp to 6738 3823 (YHH Scrap Car) with photos and/or details of your car. I have no connection with them, but had made inquiries before. They were quick to respond with an offer.

    If your vehicle is not drivable it can be towed. Depending on its value, hopefully there will still be change at the end. You can always bargain a bit: again, don't underestimate the value of the car parts. At the very end, even the mangled metal has recycling value.

    @happy_camper:
    Some scrap companies will provide you with an offer that includes free towing from where you park your car, hand you cash on site, and produce the scap certificate on the spot as well.
    I was in touch with YHH scrap company (Hong Kong Scrap car Quotation Price — 香港源興行劏車 HONGKONG Y.H.H. SCRAP CAR) which was very professional in their communication unlike the 3 others I contacted.

    Hi Guys.

    Quick update that the Tesla Model Y Long Range will be delivered in mid december (assuming no hold ups in customs).

    I've been contacted by the delivery specialist recently and will be making full payment soon. Have also found a 1 for 1 quota from an agent, which will cost me $12,000 which I think is the going rate now?

    On a seperate note, a friend of mine recently just made a deposit for a Model Y Long Range and they said the earliest delivery will be in April. He also had to pay $2,000 as opposed to $1,000 for the initial deposit.

    Seems to be the case!

    Thinking about it, it's probably rather pointless to get money.

    Car value is about $15,000 - I got Tesla-rear-ended in April (where the driver claimed) I reversed into him, but seems police didn't buy that, I got a letter from police that they prosecute the other driver.

    Anyway, repair would be about $25,000 (car is shorter on one side and need stretching) - but max I can get is the car value - 15,000.
    When I sell the car for scrap I believe the insurance (I have no idea what the status is now) will deduct whatever I get from the scrapyard. If that's they case then it really doesn't matter if I get paid or not. Is that correct?

    In the meantime no news about the Model 3 order.
