    loved the the test drives but still a bit anxious about everyday life with them :redface:

    Brilliant!

    In our extended (including cousins, etc) family, we are the only electric car owners, and we have two!
    Congratulations, did you at least get different colors!? ;-)

    You will be fine! I've had my S60 a year, and it's had plenty of range for me in the UK ;)

    Congrats.

    Thanks for the responses:biggrin:ive not been on here as I hadn't been approved and I spend most of my spare time on clubgti.com as I really like mk2 golf GTi 16v ( rabbits for our none GB friends )
    my mrs has chosen metallic silver black and my brothers wife choose pearlescent white :smile:

    got it a guys referral code off eBay so saved a £1000 off each car , I might be able to spend the £800 the dealer wants for the centre console :cursing:

    The status for my 90D changed to be same last week. I've asked my dealer about the accuracy of the delivery and await his response. I wonder if our cars will be In the same shipment from the US?

    Have you decided whether to get the centre console? I'm still undecided as its a pricey accessory...

    just spoke to Ash my delivery specialist and car should be here for end of year , my brother didn't confirm his order until a week after me but his car won't go into production until next week when mine was built last week.

    check your email and talk to your delivery specialist and he can tell you exactly what's happening

    think ill wait until I've had the car a bit before spending on the console as its a lot of money for what it is ,just see how we get on .

    ash is also cofident Stockport service and delivery will be online second week of December

    Yes !
    Ive got a low emissions Audi A6 Avant that isn't low emissions!
    Purchasing is more for tax reasons if I'm totaly honest , but we own a plastic recycling business and we have PV systems at home so we're a pretty green family ( we recycle 50 tonnes a week of industrial waste plastic )

    Although the Tesla is a wonderful car in its own right,
    your whole motoring life is changing completely.
    Which charger did you choose for your garage and who fitted it?

    Did you pay for the referral code?

    Why get one on eBay? Sounds like a scam. Anyone here would have given you one for free and some people would have paid you!

    Are you financing or buying outright?

    I wish I could find a finance package for ~£500 pm.
