    If they promise that OEM parking sensors will be present when I return to reclaim the vehicle, then let's talk. ;)

    Having an automated system with extra parking spots and charge heads, will do a better job than a human valet service.

    As for GenIII, they haven't made any promises about it being free for those cars. Of course Elon probably wants to do that. But they could introduce some limits based on their Model S experience... they have a few years to collect some statistics.

    It appears they are spaced even closer on busy routes. The I5 SC's are 115 miles apart, and the new US 101 ones in CA less than 100 miles.

    I think the wording Tesla sent out regarding their Fremont SC opening is material:

    Our Fremont Supercharger station opened today! Stop by the Tesla factory and grab a quick charge, for free, forever. ‪#‎GoElectric‬ Supercharger | Tesla Motors
