Here is my version of valet instructions.

Print, then fold on the line.
Remember to add your cell number (and maybe license plate) before laminating.

Then punch a hole in one end of the laminate. Through it, loop the wrist strap of this keyfob leash:

Many types are available for small cameras. Just search for "wrist strap." Avoid ones with rings.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE



  • Keep the card in the driver's leather seat pocket or the sub-display cubbyhole.
  • Keep the keyfob leash on you (I loop it through a belt loop and let it dangle into the pants' pocket below).
  • Go over the instruction card with the valet, then attach it to the keyfob leash and hand over.
Since a different valet is likely to retrieve your Model S, this scheme ensures that the second valet gets the instructions before reaching the car.

Nice work on the instructions. For me though, they reinforced my existing thinking -- I'm frankly afraid to let valet people come near my new-fangled rocket-car.

I would add something like tihs:

This car is a computer on wheels.
It records all acceleration, speed, distance and it's precise location.
It also transmits this data to my cell phone 24-7.

Great idea for those who are trusting... I am with some of the others and don't hand over any car to a valet. No one drives my cars but me! (Other than a random test drive of my S to someone who might buy one, of course)!
