    Never had a front plate on the Tesla. But absolutely tape it to the front when parking downtown; off at all other times.

    Is it true that there are no referral perks in Ohio?

    It is true. However, I'm working with some owners from out of state to maybe pass our Ohio referrals onto them so that at least someone can benefit. Believe me, at 18 referrals, not one is more pissed than me about this.

    Interestingly enough, if you have an Ohio dealers license, according to the law, you could garner the perks.

    So, just to clarify, we can take advantage of the referral codes when making a purchase, but we can't benefit from passing our referral codes to others. Is that correct? And what exactly is the law that prevents this? Is it something specific to car sales? Does anyone have a link?

    "This is <redacted> from Tesla. Here is a link to the law in Ohio that prohibits referral. Hope this helps your cause."

    Lawriter - ORC - 4517.20 Motor vehicle dealer - prohibited acts.

    So, Ohio owners can refer people all they want. And fellow referred Ohioans will receive the benefit of free supercharging for life. But the referring owner can not receive any rewards such as the bags, rims, powerwall, etc. And they definitely can't be entered into the S/X drawings.

    Yep. So people can't say I'm not a fan of Tesla when I criticise them for the media player.

    Also, as I understand, there are no state-specific EV incentives in Ohio, correct?

    Correct, you can direct complaints to Kasich's office.

    Personally, I'd like to see some if us lawyer owners sue the state for an exception like they do in Texas.

    I thought they all get up on the wrong side of the bed.

    Thanks to Auto Dealers Association and GOP.
    That's why I directed a friend to use the Ride The Lightning Podcast referral code instead of my code...

    Effective 2004. It's not like they were pushing back against Tesla at that point.

    Well....if you're looking for someone to benefit from out of state referrals, I'll take you or anyone up on that offer. I'd love to get my nephew one of those mini-Tesla cars for the kids. :)

    I'm just across the state border about 30 miles into Michigan. Before I had my home charging setup I was in Ohio quite a bit with my car at the Maumee Supercharger (at the Meijer). You guys have both Waffle House and Yuengling...what can I say.

    PM me your details (referral code) and we'll figure out some fair way to do this if it's possible.

    Count me in as well. Do you still need more VINs/pictures?

    Looks like some of us are going to participate in NDEW again this year:

    National Drive Electric Week Event - Columbus

    There are two additional events you are welcome to register for as well. This is a great opportunity to get EV questions answered and figure out how EV's fit into an average person's lifestyle.

    A bunch of us used this template from last year and just left it on the screen for the event: Tesla Model S 90D Information Page
