    Rick,
    Congrats on your purchase! I haven't pulled the trigger yet, but am hoping to do so later this year. I'm also in RIC (short pump area), and was looking for some local knowlege about the buying experience....options chosen....ranger service.etc.
    I know this is off-topic, and certainly doesn't help you out on the plate issue.....but let me know if I could chat you up about the experience.
    Thanks.

    Welcome!

    I am also in the Short Pump area. I went ahead and did the standard mounting, so no particular advice there.

    Pretty soon we might have enough people to have local Tesla get togethers. I have shown my car at the Richmond Cars & Coffee and have received a lot of warm interest. I think relatively few people in this area actually know what it is - they may have heard of Tesla, but they don't recognize the car.

    I'm in Charlottesville. No front plate for 14 months so far, no issues... Don't want to uglify that pretty front end!

    Greetings RVA Tesla people. I found this thread while searching for locals. I confirmed my order today. I would totally be interested in a local Tesla club.

    I also live in Glen Allen and just got my 90D. Anyone interested in a meetup? Anyone know how to reach other Tesla owners in the area?
