    Thanks! Do you have one on order?

    I was trying to help you see how worth the wait truly is :wink:

    A year?! Oh boy. Well, there are 8,765 hrs in a year -- So, you only have to watch the video 337 more times :eek:

    Thank you for the warm welcome!

    Wow, I didn't realize that Tesla was going through the NADA crap in Utah too.

    Great video. Really made me think about what I should do about delivery of the MX. I've been waiting 3+ years and there are so..... many other people waiting.

    Are you referring to how his state of charge was only 12 rated miles at delivery?

    Yes, that seems very low. Even if he had listed having charging facilities at the delivery location, you'd think they would have given him at least 50 miles, just to be safe.

    Congrats and thanks for sharing! I was also shocked at the low state of charge on delivery. No chance to take it for a serious spin after getting it without a lengthy charge first! As if the Teslanxiety wasn't bad enough to begin with.
    That rumbling was the indicator that you were about to cross a lane without signaling and it was just warning you, but then you've been driving this for about a month now so you probably know that by now.
    Enjoy!

    I hadn't heard of The Piano Guys prior to finding Al's video on the web a number of days ago. I heard the reference to being on tour and looked him up. Now I have tickets to the Chastain Park concert in Atlanta as do several of my friends. My daughter (age 14) clearly knew who they are because when I asked if she wanted to go the reply was "Heck yeah!" Ok maybe not her exact words but let's just say she was very excited.
