    Is it bad that I kind of want to contact him just so I can do a test drive?

    If you watched the Superbowl on KSL there was an interesting commercial for KSL's "Bulletproof Tesla could leave attackers in the dust" spot on International Armoring's Model S here.

    Utah finally issued "New Motor Vehicle Sales" for 2017 Q3.
    https://tax.utah.gov/econstats/mv/new-vehicle-sales

    It shows 19 X and 33 S sold during the quarter totaling 867 Roadster, X and S since the first Roadster was sold in Utah in 2009.

    Since they are showing sales and apparently not registrations it does not show any vehicles brought in from out of state.

    For those interested in details I've attached a PDF detailing all sales going back to 2009.

    Legislation is back on the table that would allow Tesla to sell here. HB0369

    Looks like a great extortion rack - which is what most of government has become. Ask most any small business person what the fees and licenses they must pay for and ask them to tell you the benefits/services they or the public get.
    Now back to this scheme (I'm sure this one will pass.)

    Highlighted Provisions:
    11 This bill:
    12 ▸ defines terms;
    13 ▸ creates a direct-sale manufacturer license;
    14 ▸ creates a direct-sale manufacturer salesperson license;
    15 ▸ permits a direct-sale manufacturer licensee to act as a dealer under certain
    16 conditions;
    17 ▸ permits a direct-sale manufacturer salesperson licensee to act as a salesperson for
    18 one direct-sale manufacturer under certain conditions;
    19 ▸ exempts a direct-sale manufacturer from the provisions of the New Automobile
    20 Franchise Act; and
    21 ▸ makes technical changes.

    Tesla, salesperson, "dealership" location - all get to pay for licenses - I hope Tesla shows these annual fees along with the other taxes right on the invoice.

    </rant> sad state of affairs in the land of the free - I'm not saying anywhere else any better - I don't know.

    Really interesting to scan/read/review the above bill - reveals a lot about how government works.

    There’s an event coming up tomorrow (Wednesday the 14th) at Capitol Hill from 3-5:30 that Tesla fans may be interested in.

    It will be a gathering of clean energy businesses like electric vehicles, solar, wind and energy storage. Some of the local Tesla employees may be there though not officially. A friend with Tesla says Tesla owners and fans are welcome to attend.

    Well, maybe if they won't let it pass there, once it does pass here Tesla here in Utah should start advertising in New Mexico. "Hey New Mexico Tesla fans: Governor won't let you buy there? Then come to Utah!" :)

    Ah. Silly me. Thanks for pointing that out. Weird that it just showed up today.

    I just deleted my reply.

    Today I stoped by the Summit county Library to see the new charge stations there. I had hopes of plugging in for a while but both of the J plug stations were blocked.

    One was in use and the other was just blocked by a Chevy Volt that was NOT plugged in. For those of you that live in Park City I was just curious if this is a common event.

    reading the bill was astounding - Did you actually read the bill text? Makes you wonder how ...

    I encourage everyone to read the bill - tells you a lot about how business actually works.
    Notice how often the customer interests are mentioned and when the product quality is mentioned.

    "shall not require the application of an identical standard to all persons in all situations."
    it really says that - how interesting

    Several Model 3’s are being prepped at the SLC service center. They didn’t have any hard numbers but the guy I spoke with guessed they had processed 10-15 of them so far since launch.

    I saw about 5 here while getting work done. Including a matte black wrapped one that’s owned by the guy who already has a wraped matte black roadster, matte black S and matte black X. It looks like the one from the original reveal.

    I totally respect anyone who wants to baby their new 3, but if you feel like testing a 0-60 or quarter mile run I would be happy to provide a device with an app for that. I don't have any 3 data in the performance metrics.

    Man I need to see the red with 19s in person. And sit in one of these. I feel like I have been waiting years for this car.

    I'd like to give one a go too, but that lack of AWD is a killer for me right now.
