    Well - Living in Texas I for one appreciate that my state legislators have minimized my regulatory burden by insisting that I patronize enterprises that engage in "a plethora of ... deceptive advertising, automotive loan application fraud, odometer fraud, deceptive add-on fees, ... other deceptive marketing" and other assorted deceptive and fraudulent practices - my local car dealers.

    I will take Tesla's 15 minute process any day!!

    No one is surprised but we still hear the lies from the dealer associations about "protecting the consumer" and "competition good for the consumer" and the legislators in some states either are too ignorant to know the truth, don't care about the truth, or know the truth but like to line their pockets with campaign contributions...

    I totally agree. And on competition being good for the consumer...isn't Tesla competition? Same old BS.

    I think they are doing what all threatened people do when they don't have the courage to change: digging in and hoping that they can thwart the competition through artificial obstacles. It will work for a while. But they will lose in the end.
