    What up ya'll

    New to the forum, i'm from El Paso, TX. I want to own a Model 3 in the future, i'm 25 years old. Also it would be great to have a Supercharger in El Paso. Currently we have destination charging I think ... Anyways that's it for now. Cheers.

    If you live in El Paso, it would be better to have two - one in Lordsburg or Deming, NM and one in Van Horn TX. You'll find that when you start a trip, you will probably be fully charged, so those locations would be your first Supercharging site depending on which way you are headed.
    But having a Supercharger in your home location, most of us have found that it's relatively cheap and convenient to charge at home. If not at a 'charge friendly' residence, start working to fix that problem now.
    Filling up at a SC near home limits your range to one fully charged battery - but if that one SC is, say 150 miles from home, your range now extends an extra 150 miles.

    Hi, what about service in El Paso? I'm aware the cars have less moving parts than regular cars and are less prone to breaking down, but what happens if they do? If the door jams? If you're involved in a crash? The closest service center is in Phoenix with one "coming soon" to Albuquerque (4 hrs away)...
