    I want to share some of my pictures from my daily life in the West Coast of Norway. I work as a Real State Agent and drive a lot in my daily life.

    The most of my time i drive alone in the car, but we also have ordered a S # R268 Eu

    Can I just say? I really enjoyed this. Great stuff. The White Roadster is quickly becoming my favorite depiction of this fantastic car. Did I say I enjoyed this yet? :love: Nothing but fun on these pictures.

    Also - where did you get those cool Tesla jackets?

    Great stuff!

    Thanks folks! It would be greate pulling this wagon....but it wheigts axp. 2000kg..:)

    The white wheels are some alloys i want to put on the car for the next summer. It is ETA Beta Jofiel ceramic X in 8x18 (front) and 9x19 rear. I have a dialog with the factory in Italy, it might be an effort to make them fit on the front axle, due the caliperclearance. I also want to lower the car ca 2-3 cm in front.

    Now i am sitting on the plane to Oslo, to have my first testdrive in the Model S! I have R EU # 268:)

    I got the jacket from Tesla Norway, and i know you can buy it in the webshop, also in black.

    Is it your S burning out on YouTube?:)

    Great thanks for the info - I see that it's about $11/gal for premium gas in Norway, what's the price of electricity per kWh?

    Haha:) Nice video! I had my first S testdrive yesterday:) awesome car. One kWh cost apx. 0,04 usd + taxes,vat and "rent" for using the electric network. Total it will be ca 0,60-0,70 NOK / kwh, = 0,125 usd. We have 100% "clean" power, water and wind:)

    No coal, gas (we have but it is not allowed to use before we can clean the co2) and no nuclear power craft.

    I will post some more photos later this week.

    Kipernicus: yes, a lot of very nice old-style cars in Norway:)

    The car you see on one of my pictures is a Original AC Cobra, signed by Shellby!
