Same in Adelaide, our service centre has gone from ‘coming soon’ to now being gate 5 at tonsley. Our service centre is a gate.....Perth's "new" service centre. Funny. Not.

The address given is McCarthy Prestige Panel and Paint, which Tesla have had a long standing agreement with. The actual location is 44 Government Road, Nedlands. I have a service appt at Richmond coming up, even though I'm in Perth, system error, and when I tried to change location to Nedlands I get an error as below.
To be fair, your service will be done somewhere on that picture.
Glad you found it funny, I’m usually only amusing to myself.Funny coming from a guy who has 2 service centres in his city. Drive to Clare, SA and keep heading west, crossing your fingers nothing goes wrong. When you hit the Indian Ocean you'll be like many of us in the West who have done the reverse to promote Tesla and EVs.
...but I'd also suggest they take anything promised to them by Tesla comms with a touch of doubt.
Just the clarify the issue here with a bit of history; when I ordered a model S in 2014 I received a phone call from a reasonably high up Tesla employee offering congratulations, in conversation he told me that Perth would have a dedicated sales and service centre by early 2016, firstly I never asked the question, he offered up that information as if it needed to be said, secondly if he'd said Perth would never get a service centre I couldn't have cared less, all I cared about was getting my hands on an insane P85D. Now here's the issue, how many other potential owners in WA and South Australia have been told a dedicated service centre would be built in 2016, 2017,2018,2019? how many potential owners in Tasmania have been told they would be getting a solitary Supercharger? If Tesla Australia comms just came out and said sorry WA/SA/Tas your only 25% of the population so you get nothing that's life but continually leading potential owners along to grab a sale is poor behavior.
I would always recommend to another West Aussie to buy a Tesla but I'd also suggest they take anything promised to them by Tesla comms with a touch of doubt.
Canberra Service Centre open, albiet incognito!
