    If we give a friend a ride or dare let them test drive our Model S, then should we have them sign a waiver that we are not liable for any snap decision they may make by putting in a reservation for their Model S? I don't want anyone's spousal unit getting mad at me or worse.:biggrin:

    I could see myself being sued should I use the 17-inch touchscreen to access the TMC website, and then allowing a friend to Design their Model S all while giving them their first exhilarating experience in this fine machine.

    Depends on which state you're in. In MA or TX you might get sued for soliciting a sale. :)

    Only if you work for Tesla. If you don't work for Tesla, anything is fair game.

    I had this exact problem with a Roadster an acquaintance bought. Thank God, she loved the Roadster too when it came and now they have a Sig S on the way as well.

    I am off the hook! :p

    My wife and I are friends with this couple and we were explicitly told by the wife to not let her husband experience the Model S. Upon asking why, see said her husband cannot even walk by an Apple store without incurring a substantial dent in their bank account. I warned her that in Park Meadows Mall (Denver), and likely other TM cities with galleries, the Tesla store is right across the aisle way from Apple. Regardless, I think see was serious about not showing the car to her husband. So I told her to never get on my bad side or as I know how to get my revenge now :wink:
