I must admit astonishment in the spotting department for Brisbane/Gold Coast/Sunshine coast. Ive just spent 4 days on the road visiting clients(8:00am to 6:00pm) all over metro Brisbane and Gold coast and not 1 Model S did I spot.? If that wasn't bad enough I got stuck with a Crumpeldoor - geez ICE's with no autopilot are dangerous ! The guys at AVIS looked at me like I had two heads when I suggested that they should have a Model S in their range.:confused:

I've been doing my level best to be spotted last 2 days. Driving around Brisbane metro plenty. No luck for either of us it seems.

Living 5 K from St Leonards, i still rarely see one in Sydney. Perhaps once or twice a week. Admittedly, i am retired and i am on the roads not at peak (if i can possibly avoid it), but even so. I charge at St Leonards at least once a week, and even then, i rarely see one, even on approach to the service centre!!

Despite there being a whole heap in Melbourne, and driving to work every day to the legal end of the CBD, it's still pretty rare that I spot Teslas on the commute! A few hundred isn't as many as you'd think in the context of a city.

Most days I will see at least one other model S on the M2 or around Macquarie Park.

Briefly went to the city today and saw a bright red one with "on-tap2" number plate.

updated---

just did did some research "On-Tap" is a hire car firm which includes Tesla Model S on their list of vehicles.
