Tesla Q&A and general meet with Cary - 7pm Tuesday 3rd June Kelvin Club

Tesla Q&A and general meet with Cary - 7pm Tuesday 3rd June Kelvin Club

The meeting will be fairly casual – Cary will be addressing our questions and/or chatting to people about specific issues. However, I think it would be worthwhile to list any specific questions on this forum before the meeting and I will make sure that Cary sees them.

For me it will be configuration options, insurance, delivery dates.

Cary has also asked for people to come ready with ideas on where they’d like to see charging and if they know anyone that would be willing to install public chargers. He wants to get chargers installed as many public locations as possible, preferably in and outside of the CDB---Especially in the Portsea and Sorrento areas. Perhaps golf courses and other places that Model S drivers might frequent.

I have started this new thread so the main details can be in the heading!

In the process of investigation of aftermarket finishes (I saw the references to Opti-Coat on the American pages) I went looking in Melbourne.

There are several dealers. One I spoke to about process and cost etc was Dan's Garage http://dansgaragedetailing.com/car-detailing-melbourne/ . He was very straight forward and had a lot of information to share. He knew about the Tesla and is interested in coming on Tuesday. I just want to be sure that no one has any objection to him coming.

So, let me know if you have any issues.

Yeah David I'd be keen to speak to him too...I wouldn't want to get it wrapped, but some kind of Opti-coating would be good so I didn't have to wash it as much. Don't like going to commercial car washes.
 
Thanks to Higgy for organising the meeting.
It was great to meet Cary and hear about his cultural adventures in Melbourne, moving into scary Richmond:smile:
There wasn't a lot of amazingly new news, the price release was delayed because the Australian website was extremely complex with a myriad of different taxes in each state and only one programmer back in head office. RHD cars are being produced in batches of 60 and production is imminent. Apparently Australia leads the RHD orders market at the moment! There'll be a showroom in Sydney and one to follow in Melbourne when the right location is found. Chadstone was the first choice but there isn't anything available at the moment. A Melbourne service centre will follow. Superchargers will follow in 'Tesla-time', initially on the Melbourne-Sydney route.

There were surprisingly few homologation issues for the Model S here apart from the rear facing seats - it sounds like that would have required local crash testing. The browser functionality is still being decided, all hoping for full functionality.
