    I should take delivery in a Model S later this month.
    We have a SC her and I've seen a few passers by, but don't know if any owners in my area.

    Nope. But glad to know your out there!
    I imagine there's quite a few owners in the BR, NO area.
    I think I will be the first Tesla owner in this area. Which feels pretty cool.

    Very nice!
    I'm in the same boat!
    Plopped down 1K for the M3 and got the bug. I found a '16 S70 CPO. Don't have a delivery date yet, but have been told it will arrive in Houston next week!

    I just contacted my guy this week.
    So you've had the connection for awhile.
    Did you place your order that far back?

    Oh no, I just knew I was getting the car eventually and I didn't think the price to install it would go down.

    Well it's official. A Model S now calls central Louisiana home.
    One of the best parts is, I feel like I have an entire SC to myself! And it's literally 2 miles from my home.

    It's was terrific!
    I received it at the Houston TSC.
    The ladies I dealt with were terrific.
    The process was very organized and simple.
    The reveal itself was awesome and well worth the drive over to receive the car.
    If I have any regrets, it is that I wish I had stuck around long enough to test drive with someone knowledgeable.

    Sweet! More Tela people in La. Anybody have info on the tax incentives in LA and if they are pretty good. I'm looking to get an S60? I'm in BR and really want to use the Super Charger here. :) Any help would be fantastic.

    Thanks for the info! Very appreciative! Looks like the wife is starting to get excited. Happy wife happy life I guess. Anyone know of a way to test drive a Model S in the BR area? Driving to Houston isn't exactly close. Lol

    They did a test drive event at the BR supercharger 2 years ago. It was early October, but they ran out of time slots before I had a chance to reply to the email. I'm still a little sad about that. My first time sitting in a Model S will be when I pick mine up in Houston in a couple weeks.

    That was my experience as well.
    I saw one up close after I had already placed my order, but my model S is actually the only one I have ever sat in.
