    This caught my attention. Can you elaborate?

    Last year Tesla changed the design of the front windscreen air vents for better de-frosting performance. I had the new design retrofitted as we took the car into the Sierra Nevada when it was cold. So this is nothing special, the insiders here will know what I am talking about.

    Aussie - Great looking car. Sorry to hear you have to part.

    Please confirm the exterior color. Sometimes Blue looks black in the photos.

    Could you also post more photos of the exterior and interior?

    Have you had any warranty issues?

    Did you get the undershield installed?

    How many times have you range charged?

    Finally, what's the build date on the car?

    Well yes, a bit upset. Tried everything to take the car with me but it just isn't possible.

    Black. Nuf said.

    GDH has beat me to it. Thanks for that.

    I had more due bill related issues, not so much warranty. Warranty: For example when I bought the new tires the TPMS didn't initialize so I had to make a new appointment to get this fixed. Got me a free car wash however. Nobody has done any work on the car (incl tires) other than Tesla and a detailing company contracted by Tesla.

    No. I haven't which is consistent with my postings here. Happy to have it installed for someone who wants the car. And you get a free car wash.

    Two full range charges. Once accidentally and the other time following the battery recalibration strategies posted on this board.

    I used the ICE car today to not put more miles on the Model S so I don't have the Tesla here at the moment but from memory it is 3/2013.

    Thanks for the quick feedback. Unfortunately the exterior color doesn't work for me.

    Good luck.

    Unfortunately this is unlikely. I could just about do enough mental acrobatics to justify the price I had paid for the car when I ordered it in 2012. But the 2014 price with 20% VAT (Europe) or 10% GST plus Luxury Car Tax and Stamp Duty (Australia) with no rebates is so much more that I just can't do it. So unfortunately no Tesla for me for a while. But I am accepting donations.

    Hopefully Australia sees the value soon in not having to import oil to refine into gas and having people drive electric. Maybe you'll be in line for a Gen III Tesla. Best of luck.

    Congratulations on the sale. Can you elaborate on the "car signed by Elon Musk" part?

    Maybe a Gen III Model S. :)

    I was still happy to have the car for 15 month. The resale value was also good, we almost got the full asking price for the car, significantly north of $90k.

    Yes, Elon gave a quick introduction to the car when I picked it up in Freemont and he then signed the visor on the driver's side. So sort of a signature collection. :wink:
