    Am I Being Quoted Too High For My Wall Connector Installation?

    Question about Tesla Wall Connector

    Hi everyone, I've purchased a 2nd hand Model S. Just waiting to take delivery later this month. Exciting times! Tesla Japan quoted me a rough ballpark estimate to install the Wall Connector for about 30,0000 to 40,0000yen which I thought was pretty ridiculous and put me on the search for...
