    Hi guys,

    Having been advised that Tesla have temporarily scrapped M3 test drives I was wondering if there was anybody with a M3P+ in/around the Manchester area who would be willing to meet up for a coffee and take me for a spin over the next week or so?
    Tea/Coffee and doughnut on me and I'll happily use your referral link when I put my order in :)

    No worries if not - just thought i'd give it a stab :)

    As of tomorrow I'll have a P- (fingers crossed) I'm in East Lancashire but I imagine I'll be eager to show off my M3. DM if this is any use.

    That's really kind of you but i'm stuck in meetings in the city centre until 6pm on Tuesday :( I wouldn't expect you to stick around until then - peak time traffic coming out of Manchester on normal days is a nightmare so with the Tory conference in town it will be carnage.

    Thank you for the offer though :)

    Thanks Jetson Jones - What's your diary like at the back end of this week, in the evening? Thursday or Friday?

    Alex has kindly offered to take me for a spin in his M3P- next week one evening which we're going to sort (thanks Alex!).

    I'll DM you now and maybe we can arrange something for Friday afternoon early evening this week?

    TM3PTN, I'd be happy to. I'm free most of this week. Based in the Ramsbottom area.

    But it's probably worth noting that I haven't received a Model 3 yet but my girlfriend's 2005 Berlingo (in turquoise) is pretty nippy if I take the crap out of the boot and I fancy a free donut.

    All attempts at hilarity aside, my test drive got cancelled too so I feel your pain.

    Yeah. I've taken to researching a full domestic solar system with a Tesla Powerwall just to stop me watching yet another Model 3 video!

    Wife/social secretary away - retired geezer with nobody to play with for the next 2 days. Happy to share the joys of ownership of a red M3P- with 18" Aero wheels.
