    yep 3rd gen RX-7. My race car. The other sports car I have is the GT-R, but the 7 is a car that I have always had a special attachment to. I just love that finicky car.

    So....what do I do about temp tags?!
    LOL. What do I bring to the tax office? Proof of purchase? I don't see anything with a title etc...

    Man,

    Ross my rep at Tesla is the man. Answers emails at all weird hours.

    Apparently there was suppose to be a welcome packet that had my temp tags and info to take to the tax office...which I haven't gotten. When he gets to the office in the am he said he would track down what happened.

    Regardless, I couldn't resist and took the car for a quick spin.

    LOL fun...:tongue:

    In Minnesota I had to pay around $11k in sales taxes before I could get mine licensed. It came with a 30-day temp tag in the window. Your white Roadster is going to look a lot cleaner than my black one does most of the time. Good choice!

    Ross is a pretty cool guy. We hung out at one point when they were still doing test drives here.

    His partner in crime, Collin, took the photos.

    (Bad hair day on my part. :tongue:)

    Your temp tag is a piece of paper that you tape into the rear window. It is included with the packet.

    Beautiful! :biggrin:

    I really like the CF interior as well. I think it provides a nice contrast with the white exterior.
