    Full house at Hotel Realm in Canberra today. Hopefully this encourages more to roll out destination charging.

    Hooray! Have seen another Tes on the road on Sunday- Ostero!. I was beginning to think I was all alone.....:frown:

    As an aside: When is it NOT a good time to own a Model S....?

    Having to get out of the passengers side back door proved to be- well- interesting.

    I went down to Melbourne for a work trip about 3 weeks ago. While travelling into the city in a taxi, I spied a Model S heading north on Flemington Road. It was silver.

    Spotted a white Model S at Perth airport the other day, no photo sorry. Was parked just outside the public parking area near one of the car rental places.

    Was pulled over at an RBT this evening and after checking licence and zero reading on breathalyser the cop goes "blimey that's a big Nav Man is that standard on the car?". Not wanting to hold up the line I just said yes and headed off. As I drove off the cop calls out to his colleague "hey look at the size of the Nav man in that car!".

    if only we were allowed the browser I could have really blown their minds!

    Just spotted a White Model S on Ginninderra drive near McKellar, ACT. First one I've seen in Canberra after seeing about 5 in Sydney over Summer.

    Can't think of a better placeholder car for your TESLAX number plates.

    I spotted my first Model S on the road today (apart from the one that I test drove), it was the NSW registered P85+ demo car driving down Park Street South Melbourne

    This is probably not a legitimate 'spot' but in the latest Renew magazine (issue 131) there is an article and photo of a
    couple who live in the Dandenong Ranges and they have a dark blue or black Tesla, rego number 111-111.

    This issue of Renew has a lot of EV info in it, it has a white BMW i3 under a solar carport on the cover.

    yeah those rims are not Tesla rims - he got them because they are much better aerodynamically and weigh a lot less than Tesla wheels.

    That car was delivered late March but for some reason the owner reckons he has been told he has the 12th Model S in Australia. Don't know who is telling him that. 12th in his suburb maybe.
