    Hi folks,

    I'm looking to potentially buy a used Model S (what I really really want is an original Roadster, but realise its a waiting game to buy one). So in the meantime, I was thinking of scratching the itch with a MS.

    However, I think it might be a bit touch and go in my garage who's internal dimensions are approx 5m square.

    Would anyone be willing to pop to Chelmsford one evening and try it in exchange for a cuppa?

    Many Thanks,

    Tom

    My double-garage is exactly 5 metres deep with the door closed. My MS60 fits in with three quarters of an each clearance front and rear.

    It is a little too low mileage and special for me - that looks like one for a collector and is top ££ isn't it?

    How can you get it that tightly in?

    With great care! (No, not really). I have a precisely fixed front-wheel wheel chock combined with a thick piece of carpet hanging on the inner wall of the garage.

    Oh yes. I wish that brick pillar wasn't in the way at the back of my garage, but I think garage extension + new car is a step too far for the family finances at this present moment!
