    I apology in advance if a thread has already been started regarding parts suppliers for Model S. I searched, but came up empty. Saw this article regarding a stamping manufacturer supplying parts thru 2016.

    Are they selling these Tesla nameplates? That would look awesome in my office if they are selling them to the public.
