    YES! Except they're not really covers. They are complete replacements for the plastic taillight surrounds.

    Somebody needs to remind them to plug the car in. If it just sits there, it will be a brick by the time they want to show it off.

    I'm not on Facebook, but they've got a page there: Midwest Dream Car Collection

    Here in Portland Roadsters are much rarer than in the Bay Area and California, but I have seen 4, all at the service center. The first was the day I took delivery of my S. I took that as a good omen. :)

    Then I saw Bonnie's at the new service center/sales center just after she traded it in. Today I dropped off my car for its yearly service and there were two parked end to end inside. I was going to get a picture, but the tech came up.

    That color is spectacular...plus 2.5 Forged Wheels on a 2.0 Sport? Very interesting.

    Before the Redwood Symphony concert at Cañada College last Saturday we spied another Roadster that we had not seen before, VIN 1199. Here my wife is talking Tesla with a couple of passersby whom we saw checking out the car. Perhaps RS = Redwood Symphony? IMG_4581.jpg

    I regularly see a Lotus Elise (picture attached) parked in my town, and I've scratched my head a couple of times over the handicapped placard only because we all know how physically challenging it is to get in/out of a Roadster, and the Lotus Elise is even more challenging because the side sills are a few inches higher that our Roadsters. It's almost an able bodied test to be able to get in/out of these cars! Now that being said, I realize there are certainly some conditions whereby a person can get in/out of this Lotus yet not be able to walk very far, so I am not crying fowl here and I actually admire that someone that has trouble physically finds it worth it to have this car.

    I know someone who wouldn't have a problem getting out of a low car, but qualifies for a handicap placard because of a heart condition.

    Euro plates make the 2.5 front fascia look like it has teeth. :D
