    Hi all,

    I'm a little late to the party in The Netherlands, where tax laws are changing in 2014 making 100% EV slightly more expensive. In short: they are no longer 100% tax free, but 96%. However, I'm still contemplating ordering a Model S for early 2014 and getting rid of my E61 BMW 535d. While a truely great car, it's hugely expensive in private income taxes and feels 'old and dirty' after reading about the Model S over the last few weeks.

    I'll try 'n post useful stuff about my progress, mainly in the Europe/Dutch corner here.

    Welcome! I just got mine last Thursday and haven't regretted anything yet.

    Once you have driven a Model S all other cars with an ICE feel like old dinosaurs to drive, even your 535d. I drove a 530d last weekend and it felt really weird to hear that engine rev up and such.
