    I'm interesting in talking to an owner and/or having them take me for a quick drive. Anyone in the Minneapolis area that wants to stop by Lino Lakes this afternoon? I need the extra help of seeing one in person to convince my wife!

    Well, it isn't a drive, but if you want to talk to an owner I will be at the state fair from 5-9 in the Eco Experience building next to the Tesla.
    Or, next week I would be happy to take you for a test ride Tue, Wed (during the day)or Thursday.
    Or, during the week, call the Tesla Service center in Eden Prairie and ask for Ashley.

    I already stopped by the Eco building yesterday and had a chance to check one out from the exterior. I spoke with Tesla today and the earliest I can get in for a test drive is next weekend (partly due to my schedule - I'm busy during the days). I was just hoping there was someone in the area this weekend who wanted to show off their car.

    Quite likely there is, just not many read the boards nonstop like I do:)
    I'll point some other MN owners this way and see if any can help you out.

    Awesome, you'll love it! Great to meet you two. Be sure to stay in touch with Ashley from the service center, she is great and needs our support to expand Tesla's footprint in MN.

    I was hanging around the MoA waiting to pick up my family at the airport. I suspect Blaine was an easier drive :)

    As a side note, all of the EV parking at MoA was taken up. By EV cars. Definitely a good sign.

    That's good. I now have to convince my employer to install some charging locations!

    By the way, I just confirmed the order this morning. I'm really looking forward to this.

    You can check out my P85+ if you are still debating different trim levels. Although it sounds like your impatient self has already confirmed the order. :) Congrats!
