    Just went to a Tesla Motors store in NY, all I could get was apparel, no parts, not even touch up paint sticks.

    Might get another chance tomorrow, a different place, to go to a proper service centre.

    Anyone else in HK need parts urgently, time to PM me today.

    No, I am not going to bring you a roof rack for your skis and snowboard, that'd be too much for me to carry, nor will I take a set of 21" rims.

    Can you spot where the Tesla Motors Store is, in this picture (top)?

    Hint #1: It is very very VERY hard to find unless you know where it is or zoom in a lot.

    Hint #2: For help, use Google Maps, search for Tesla Motors, Manhattan

    Inside, this TM Store is a bit different than the other TM Stores. It used to be a combined Roadster service and sales centre, while service has now been moved to Long Island - and there are no more roadsters for sale.

    Your wishes are all granted.

    So who picks me up (Model S, please) at the airport on Sunday?

    w@@t That isn't the trunk mat on the left is it? What time are you arriving? I can do morning IF my car is returned to me (in service center now to fix not-opening charge port & water seeping roof)

    Yes it's your mat, it's not as heavy as I thought. Please note 12% sales tax on top

    The goodies!

    So here we go, I believe I got all the items that people asked for. Next challenge is to carry it back home but it seems manageable. All for the team!

    North America Tesla Parts Shopping Spree.JPG

    Into HKD, including charges and taxes in HKD:

    Floor mats for trunk 1721
    Liftgate rear sunshade 775
    Pano roof sunshade 1291
    Front trunk organizer (the last one they had, it's in back order but I got the display unit): 1076
    Touch up pens (each) 173
    T-shirts, kids, (each) 149

    If JohnxII can pick me up on Sunday (hope no changes for my part!) he can get all the stuff, and the rest of you can get it from him, or I can keep it for later. I will be a bit out of town in the near future, though, so a bit hard to reach. I am sure you are eager to receive.

    I also got some key rings and a plastic model. In olive drab colour, or some kind of army green. OK, Let's just call it "green".

    Each order take, expect a netmail very soon with details.

    Thanks again DITB! Saved me a ton of shipping fees! Have a safe flight back to HK and hope to meet all of you soon! (won't be in HK until Aug 31)

    Ditto.

    Especially as I've spent enough on airline excess baggage fees in my time, it's good to get payback courtesy of the cockpit crew :)

    Hey guys, just to make sure nobody else is as eager as I am to pickup the shopping. I will be driving to the airport this morning in a few hours.
