You leave the motor and lights on and the car unlocked after driving your wife's ICE powered car
I've been a Model S owner less than 2 months and have already caught myself doing this a couple times. Then sometimes I remember I need to shut off the ICE before getting out and I try pressing the end of the windshield wiper stalk...

You regularly greet your Tesla sales rep and store manager with hugs when you see them at Tesla events. They ask about your family members -- by name -- and give you a half dozen or more Tesla keychains for each.

Take that, Volkswagen.

... you realize none of the new ICE cars seem attractive anymore.

Same here!
Used to read all the reviews of the new and upcoming models.
Nowadays, it's just... oh well, another piece of outdated 19th century technology with marginal changes compared to last year's model. Couldn't care less.

I also find it amusing when other car companies boast about their "advanced technology" and 7" touchscreen!

I find myself searching for the one Tesla article in car magazines and then leave feeling disappointed that we've been misrepresented!

OK - wow! Whoever made that - huge props. It's a small group that know what it takes to make that. I don't personally - but a cousin made a full suit, gloves included. It was a monstrous undertaking. Someone really loves you. That's a big-deal-piece-of-art right there.

Totally agree!

How about when you are tired of fighting with the spouse over whose 'Tesla' day it is.... you both find common ground and just order another Tesla.


I laughed so hard at this one. We have had Tesla #1 since April 2015. We have decided it's time for Tesla #2 for EXACTLY this reason! Anyone selling an early red P85D with next-gen seats? :)

Will be traveling soon and using Silver Car (is there a Tesla only rental car company in the USA?--I believe there is one in Europe)

Not looking forward to driving an ICE, even if its a decked out A4! I am preparing myself for alot of noise, vibration and slow acceleration. Will also try to remember to turn the car off and lock it...

You might be a Tesla owner if you and your wife have an agreement that commuting to work is "Tesla Time" and phone calls are only for emergencies. Note we have the ultra high fidelity sound system :)

YMBATOI...your heart skips a beat when you log into the iPhone app like you do everyday even though your car is not built yet and for half a second, you see the main home screen before the usual message that your car is not built yet appears!
