    I just got an email that I've been invited to a test ride, either Tuesday at Rosewood Menlo Park (not the store) or Saturday at Santana Mall in San Jose. I signed up for Tues and will post pics if I can.

    Oddly enough, I also received that Email. My "test ride" will consist of driving my roadster to and from the office :smile::wink:

    They had 2 cars and 2 employees there to answer questions. At first only one car was on the road but as the line built up they ran both cars. It was a nice low key event and it was fun to experience the roadster. The hotel was pretty cool too.

    I just got an email inviting me to the Saturday event and offering me a drive. Naturally, I replied with something along the lines of, "HELL YES!!!!!" :biggrin:

    Still waiting to hear back to see if I could get one of the available time slots though.

    ryanjm, I never got a confirmation email but my name was on the list, and they just took us in the order we arrived. We had to sign a waiver and Alex used the pile of waivers to keep track of who was next.

    Thanks for the heads-up Kipernicus. Fortunately, I got a confirmation email today and will be excitedly anticipating my test drive tomorrow afternoon.
