    I stopped by the DC Tesla store on a spur of the moment as I was leaving for the airport.

    They have 4 cars at the store now for some Congressional event.

    VIN 106 (brown) was on display in the shop. The brown was nicer in person than on the website and in photos I have seen. VIN 102 (blue) was available for test diving.

    And I did ...

    I spent about 30 minutes driving around DC with Kadira, who was very nice and knowledgeable, and another guy who happened to be in the store at the time.

    Gorgeous car; awesome run. No fears or concerns about mechanics.

    I am hoping the issue of the dash covering the clock on the upper right of the screen is fixed. I was also able to lift the dash up near the door on the drivers side; I assume this is preproduction stuff as well as wear and tear from the Get Amped tour.

    If I didn't have to catch a flight, I would have driven longer it seems. Unfortunately I arrived at the airport on time only to find out my flight was delayed 1.5 hours.

    Ugh, so love the brown. Perhaps for the X.

    I called the store, the other two are silver and black, and they are soon to be moved to a different store. From the descriptions and the VINs above, these all sound like Get Amped vehicles, unsurprisingly.

    You should have used the touch screen browser to check your airline portal for delays :crying:

    I got my first text message notification from American Airlines that it was delayed when I was in the cab to the airport. :mad:

    David and I met up and had a beer at the excellent pub just south of the store.

    Only interesting tidbit is that there were indeed 6 custom-color cars (early VINs): ggr's, roblabs's, a custom green, and three other unknowns. I would love to see pics of the custom green!
