    Ive had my Tesla Roadster now for just over 2 weeks and I just wanted to post how pleased i am with the car. The one i got is White and seems to have every conceivable optional extra fitted so props to the previous owner for that. Here are some pics, Im sure you will have seen it around, its very distinctive.

    My plan is to fit a removable iPad mini and I've already ordered the OVMS dongle. My previous car was a Nissan GTR but i fell in love with the instant torque and fun handling of the roadster. Ive already put almost 2000 miles on the car just blasting around the lake district in it constantly. I almost met up with another owner when i passed his car parked up charging too. What a coincidence lol. I also fancy one of those CAN devices, is there any planned group buys as i think the price is a little high as a single purchase.

    congrats!
    is the blank paint or wrap?
    It looks great either way.

    I also have a GT-R but keep it for track duty. The roadster is my daily.

    Nice. Stormtrooper theme? I am almost 5 years in, and the instant torque does not get old.

    My VIN is 690. I don't think (?) they overlapped VINs overseas...could yours be different?

    OK, great, I didn't think they had done that. Perrin21 is my UK doppelganger.

    The black and stripes is a matte wrap. Looks like paint through :)
