Tire repair kit... included with new Teslas in CA or not?

    I recently took delivery of my new Model S.

    At delivery, not finding one in the car, I asked about the tire repair kit. The DS seems pretty sure it wasn't supposed to be included, and that I could buy one, but he seemed not totally sure it should have been included.

    I read somewhere that Tesla doesn't necessary include the kit in all locations where Teslas are sold, sometimes depending on local regulations.

    Taking delivery in California, should I have received a tire repair kit with a new Model S, or not?

    I didn't get one. Tesla roadside assistance promptly brought a spare wheel/tire when I got a flat, which is better than a temporary plug in my mind.

    The owner's manual for Model S says this:
    I knew I read it somewhere.

    You need to buy the repair kit. It doesn't come with the car in CA.

    What Patrick said. I also found out that many SC don't have many in stock, but that may have changed.
