Those of youanticipating delivery of your model S might consider withholding completepayment until your car is registered and you receive the license plate(s). Letme describe Tesla's sequential blunders in preparing me for the road. Iinformed Tesla before I took delivery that I would register the car in state A,even though my official address for Tesla communication was in state B. Shortlybefore I received the car, I received registration materials for the car instate A. I informed Tesla of their error, and was told that the problem wouldbe corrected at the time of delivery. I signed a series of registrationdocuments for state B when I took delivery, including a hefty check for the usetax in state B. Tesla cashed the check, and I waited for my registration andlicense to be received in the mail. I waited, and waited and waited. Finally, Icalled Tesla, and they told me that they had sent me the registration materialsfor state A, and that I was responsible for registering the car. I informedthem once again of my plans for registering the car in state B, and that theyhad cashed my check intended to pay for that registration. Their response wasthat before anything could happen, I had to return the registration materialsfor state A to them. As I was out of the country at the time, this delayed theprocess to register the car in state B. In the meantime, the temporaryCalifornia registration will expire at the end of March, and Tesla has notindicated to me how it intends to help me with transportation when my carbecomes (temporarily) illegal to drive. Just a warning note to others thatTesla's "ownership experience" is far less enjoyable, and far morehassle than advertised.
