    Is it normal for TM Stores to carry an inventory of parts like floor mats, touch up paint and so on, in the service centers? I plan to visit Powell St center soon, hoping I can just walk in and get the items I want.

    Anyone in Vancouver who wants to show off their Model S (or Roadster?), then I'm game the next few days :rolleyes:

    They have in the past when I've picked stuff up, but usually a good idea to call in advance. Now that the Robson Street store is open, some of that stuff may be stocked there and if you're staying down town then that's a lot more convenient. The Powell St service center is along the edge of the port facilities, so not the most enchanting of neighbourhoods!

    I am down south anyway in the Richmond area, but I got inline skates - as long as it doesn't rain, I don't mind either. I just went to the TM Store on Manhattan, all I could get there was caps and T-shirts (and other apparel). That was the reason I was aiming for the Service Centre, rather than the Store, when I get to Vancouver.

    I just picked up a spare 14-50 and some grey touch up paint, so they seem to have some stock of things. I would just call ahead and make sure they have it to save you a trip and to have it put aside for you.

    Successful day, and thank you Paul Carter for being my host in Vancouver!

    Went to meet a cloth diaper seller for me to stock up on size 2 AppleCheeks (Canadian product), and isn't the seller a Tesla Stock owner? She saw my T-shirt. Next up, it turns out her sister lives 500 meters from me in Hong Kong.

    It's amazing how quick the model S 60 is, I am happy I got the straight 85 and not the P or P+.

    Most of the parts here are for part-less new Signature Model S owners in Hong Kong (me myself need to wait about another month to get mine).

    Yes, that is for a HK TM Signature owner. Having the dog in the trunk will soon be with these floor mats!

    Parts for the needy - HK TM not yet up to speed on inventory:

    The first time I saw a Model X up close (ha ha ha!):

    And for the cultural side of things:

    218 flavours so why not also Wasabi. Surprised they didn't have beef flavour?

    Thank you, Paul, and Vancouver (so far) for the hospitality (and only some rain) Yes, I know it's good for the flowers and to make beer of ...

    Looks good! I want to get one of those bags for the frunk. I didn't know the service center had them in stock. You got here a few days late when it comes to the weather. We had a great July and early August and do need the rain! Where are you from originally and what brought you to HK? I've been there a couple of times and while it makes for an interesting visit, to live there, there would have be a special woman, or high paying job!

    He took the last/only one I think. I almost bought it. They have some more on order now, I put my name down for one after seeing it close up. :)

    I passed by there today - and was gobsmacked by the amount of inventory sitting in the car park. I trust all these have owners, otherwise why am I waiting 'till December for mine?

    End September is end of fiscal quarter, which seems to cause a surge of deliveries every 3 months.

    Good to know that the local Tesla stores have some inventory. I recently ordered some stuff for my MS from their online store. Had to pay in USD plus lots for Fedex shipping. Only benefit online is home delivery and no taxes.
