    Went to our local Auto Zone to pick up new wiper blades for my wife's Highlander Hybrid. The friendly, but not terribly quick, clerk offered to get on the computer to see what blades would fit before I could look in the handy book at the display. When he came back asking again what car it was I told him, but then chose to check the book myself.

    Searching for the Toyota under the "T's" what did I find? That's right friends, "Tesla" listed big as day--could have picked out the right size blades for a Roadster straight from that book, had I been so inclined.

    Probably not monumental, but still, I think it's significant in that even a windshield wiper blade company has taken enough notice to publish the proper specs for our little upstart company.

    If it shares parts with lotus vehicles, they may have just simply copied the data under the tesla name?

    Still that is very cool and encouraging. Getting parts in future years has been a minor worry.
