    Spoke with one of my regular Tesla service guys and it seems that a new location that is both Sales and Service Center will be opening up in Buena Park around September...

    It's at the auto center (taking over an old dealership spot. I'm guessing 6692 Auto Center Dr, Buena Park, CA 90621 (closed Chevy)) by the junction of I-5 and CA-91...

    Looks like a good spot for a Supercharger as well (like the locations they have in the East Coast (Paramus, NJ or Syosset, NY)).

    The first two will probably be September, but I would think the first I-5 Supercharger in the LA/OC area will probably be at that location after the store/service center opens.

    If that is true, that would be cool. The only other best option around there is the Mitsubishi HQ, with the chaDemo chargers... nearby.

    Would love to see one somewhere near the Anaheim Honda Center.

    I think that the folks at Tesla said that they are still asking the City of Buena Park for permission to install. So... There's that.

    I stopped by the other day, the show room is spectacular. They brought over people from Brea and other locations to run it. It was like heaven driving in and seeing all those S's parked there being majestic

    I got My S from the Buena Park Dealer. It's supposed to be Tesla first physical dealer and they try to keep it stocked with CPO cars and a couple of new inventory cars. I was really great to see so many different S models together. They also have just about every version of the S available for test drive including a P90D.

    To @m2140: Just to be clear: Tesla showrooms are not "dealers". TSLA has no dealerships.
    I think what you mean to convey is that the new Tesla showroom in Brea has a larger number of cars then normal on the premises including CPO cars that are for sale, not just for demo and test drives.
    I do not mean to offend you. But not having dealerships is an important part of Tesla's sales strategy, and terminology matters.

    I first heard about the Buena Park dealer from a salesman at the Mission Viejo Showroom. The guy called it's Tesla's first dealer and the guys at the Buena Park store called it a dealer. And it makes sense to me that it's called a dealer because unlike the showrooms, they actually have new & CPO cars in stock for sale. You can buy same day on CPO cars. Tesla corporate may not call it a dealer, but it's a dealer.
