    So fun. I really like the under car shot at the start.

    Nicely done. One editing suggestion: Remove the first second or a half second from each shot where the car is stopped. That will make it look like the car was in motion throughout.

    Another suggestion. Show all the goodies that the car is picking up at every stop.

    I was thinking the exact same thing! Make it look like one continuous drive.

    Yes!

    Is your car a wrap or dipped? What color is that?

    Yeah, I kinda noticed that too after I had already tried to sync the cuts to the music. Darn, hoping it wasn't that noticeable. haha Thanks for the suggestion!

    This is an excellent idea! I actually had thought about doing something like that but the thought came late! So then I actually added on the Starbucks scene and put it on the front. I was going to show the Starbucks cup in the cup holder but that video somehow messed up. :/ Oh well. Thanks for your comment and suggestion! That would have been great!

    Thank you! I get a lot of flack for those door ding protector air rafts! But they really get the job done! I have a 10 year old and I can remind him over and over again, but _everytime_ he just swings that door wide open as fast and hard as he can. haha

    It really is a very clever way of protecting from door dings at home, even if -- at least at 1st it -- seems like someone may have gone a bit overboard.

    great video BTW.. also great color, and i REALLY like the rims. very cool!!

    I was thinking about where a Tesla would actually go...

    Supercharger
    Tire/Wheel Shop
    Car Wash
    Auto parts store
    Radio Shack
    Best Buy

    ;)

    Yeah, I should have thought that through! I did see the gas station and thought "that would make a nice shot as it rolls on by" lol

    It would have been really funny to drive up to a tire shop with stock wheels, and then drive away with new ones! :)
