    He means around where do you live, or where do you spend most of your time. Probably doesn't want to catch the bird flu.

    Just picked up #569 and drove it home. Kids now having fun with it in the garage.

    Salesman was surprised when I asked him if #520 had been picked up yet. Let's keep him guessing how I knew...

    Neighbor walked up and asked if I was filling it with gas. I pointed out it was electricity, but I think she was joking ;-)

    Wow, that is very orange ;-)

    By the way: there is going to be a Hong Kong Tesla Club meet-up next Sunday (15th) morning. We'll post details here when location is confirmed.

    In Hong Kong, premium cars pay around 100% tax on first registration (for the car and all accessories installed for the first six months).

    Electric cars are tax free (until 2014 at least).

    Thanks. I don't think there are any 'bad' Tesla colors. I don't want flashy, like black, but thought gray was a bit more interesting,

    My guess would be the common new owner problem of not knowing how to close the trunk.
