    Anyone selling their Grey Model S? (black is also an option). I will pay the original price minus $5k.

    You should consider ordering one if you can't find a used one. You'll get the $7,500 federal tax credit that way. Can probably get it in one to two months.

    A location a little more specific than 'world' would also help you out.

    Of course. I am from Belgium, Europe. I don't want to wait till 2014.

    I see. Yes, Belgium much more specific than world:smile: Wouldn't you likely want the 3 phase European spec version anyway? Good luck on your search.

    Doesn't seem like it, I got a reservation slot that says 'Dec 2013'. Got this confirmed by HQ in netharlands.. none will be available before end of year.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Didn't know about 3 phase. What's the advantage? Quicker charging? You think it will be incompatible with charging stations?

    I'd just wait at this point. At most you'll only save maybe 3 months and save a ton of shipping. You'll also only have a car with the US Tesla plug and single phase power and won't be EU compliant meaning service may be more of an issue over there.

    If Belgium has 3 phase power to the house, it means you'll be able to charge quicker there and also use more of the public chargers with the Mennekes plug.

    Nitpicker's corner: "WTB" is "want to buy" and I presume that's where you got the title from. "Willing" expresses something significantly different, like being "willing" to pick someone up at the airport -- i.e. you're doing the person a favor.

    Sorry to nitpick but you hit a pet peeve of mine.



    Getting to your vehicle.... I'd just wait if I were you. There seem to be new goodies included in the base vehicles as new markets open up. Canada got some goodies for example. For your market, the charging options are changing as others have mentioned. For these reasons, I'd wait. Also keep in mind that if you import a U.S. market vehicle you may have to go through some hassles to make it street legal for you. "Homologation" takes care of this already for vehicles that the manufacturer builds specifically for that market.

    I'd give you a positive reputation point except I already did for another post!

    One of the best things about Tesla is the owner group and community. :)

    Canada got some goodies? All I remember is leather seats being standard with a corresponding price increase...
