    Hi, I'm trying to organize a factory tour for a group from Kazakhstan (1 to 15 people). They are visiting California and deaming to see a legendary factory. I'm in contact with Tesla on this topic, they are willing to help but they said they could only schedule factory tours for the registered owners of Model S. And the owner sould be on the tour.

    An initiator of this whole idea is a Model S owner, the thing is he didn't registred the car on his name in tesla's database yet.

    So, Is there any Tesla Owner near Freemont, willing to join the party and help with scheduling this on his name?

    It would be great and really helpful. Thanks :)

    I along with many TMC members met Igor at TMC Connect 2015. He's a good guy.

    I hope someone is able to help him on this.

    Danny, thank you! :) I just thought - maybe there is someone who want to have a factory tour this week. So it could be a match.
    If not - no worries here.

    I'm afraid I can't help (not in CA). Question: Is Tesla really offering to allow an owner take possibly 15 people on a tour as a guest? I'm doubtful.

    When I called last May to schedule a Factory tour, I was told only party groups of 4 were allowed.

    andrewket, gmontem, wk057 Thanks for the info! Actually even one guest would be good in that case. But I guess - it's hard to find a matching tour like that, in a week.

    I'm going to tell other tesla owners here - that its a good idea to register their car in their name in a first day :)

    AMPd, thank you so much for your support! :) That's how TMC comunity works! Great! :)

    But if we wouldn't managed to do that, your help was just in time. Thanks.

    ps: If you want to schedule a tour for yourself - send your request here: [email protected]
    They need an information, with that they could find you in a tesla owner's database (name \ email or vin)
