    Again turned overcast, but still looked pretty decent, so thought I'd post them. I have hi-res versions for anyone interested. Enjoy. :)

    First gave her a good wash, with the help of my son...

    Fantastic shots!!! What an elegantly simple configuration, your car is sinfully good-looking.

    Nice! I have to say you look a little young to own a Model S but what do I know? :)

    Nice work? How many pounds (kg) did you end up using to keep the lights on??

    For some pics I used 4 gallons of sealed water (should be 32lbs) -- for others my son sat in the front seat and ducked (he knows what not to touch).

    You got your plates already! Any special tricks to do that?

    Car looks good, and fast! I was going to do first wash today as well but had to go into work unexpectedly.

    Definitely wasn't the first wash. ;) Did finish waxing tonight.

    Plates showed up today, although I already ordered personalized plates, so the plates on it are already old, but I'd rather have something on than nothing. You can login to dmvnow.com and check your online account and see if you Model S is showing up -- I saw it a few days before I got my plates. I didn't do anything special, apparently Tesla was on the ball getting the thing registered. I still do need to get the stupid state inspection though...

    Cell phone pics, so not great... but here she is all waxed. And my helper.

    Great shots, same combo as my order. P85, black,black,carbon with silver wheels ( think grey wheels don´t look that good with black paint ).
    Why didn´t you go with the carbon spoiler ?
    Is there a option to remove the "model s" badge as well as the "P85" badge ?

    The rear difusor is the only thing that sort of stands out as a mismatch, maybe that could be vinyl wrapped in carbon or something.

    Carbon Spoiler and P85 badge are due bill items from Tesla... So I'll get those eventually...

    Scott, these pics are really getting me by til delivery, thanks.

    So you didn't need to call up Tesla before delivery and push them about VA registration, etc?

    Nope, it just happened (as it should). Maybe they're improving on this...

    Hehe, well it won't be on for long. This plate should be coming soon:

    Ha - Hopefully that Ranger is the only one you'll need around your house.
