    After many weeks going through every single post to understand the Tesla Roadster a bit more, I finally made the decision and bought #771 in Sydney (Australia)

    A big thank you for the help and support of:
    - Tom Saxton's program VMSparser. This program allowed me to get confidence in the technical state of the car by analysing the logs with this tool. Amazing. Never knew that was possible!
    - @BartJ for his advice :)
    - Everyone else for asking and sharing on this forum. So much great information on here ....

    Looking forward to playing around with OVMS (on order) and a Visium Hard-Top (thx to the person in this forum who recommend it).

    Congrats and welcome to the club @pd_australia! I've never seen the little "Roadster" sticker next to the rear wheel before; normally where the rectangular silver "Sig***" or "Sport" side plaques would be. Is that custom or did it come like that from the factory?

    CONGRATS! 771 looks great.

    I suggest reading about the fitment and other things associated with the Visium hardtop (such as electrical tape along the front edge) before ordering one. :)

    A roadster-in-the-wild! Nice pic, so much better than the photo of all those forlorn roadsters huddled together in the Hong Kong basement that appeared elsewhere on this forum recently. So what did this piece of ev history set you back & what range does it have left?

    Your red rocket pocket tourer would just eat the bit of Springwwod rd between Agnes Banks & the Hawkesbury Lookout. It was fun in a Nissan Leaf, orgasmic in a roadster I reckon!

    Very nice color combination: red with the carbon upgrades and black wheels! Enjoy the rides!
