The car is a blast !

Sun Dec 12, 2010 10:53 am

Yesterday was a crazy day. I'll keep this post short, but I'll write a much longer debrief on yesterday / the car later today (probably this evening).
In short the car is great, it clearly exceeds my expectations. It's as much a pleasure on the highway as it is in the city.
I know that you're all as impatient as I was to get it, but trust me, it's worth the wait !

if you have specific questions about it, please ask them in this thread, I'll try and answer these in the longer post I'll do later.

Great to hear. I just have one question for now....how many miles left did you have when you made it home? Little worried after I saw you with the CBS crew in the City with the drive still to make to Redwood City.

When you take the car out into the wild, do people stop you and ask you a million questions about it, or does it pretty much go unnoticed?

Gudy (or should we call you Olivier now? - a few questions for you then.

1) vin - does it match what you shared before? Nevermind - we got this from the pics. Still ends in 206. The "P" is still there too that someone thought was for Passive airbags.
2) remote heat/cool - does it work identically regardless of how you have the car plugged in? or if you have it plugged in?
3) manual - did you get one? Did you look it through and learn anything new to share?
4) the ceremony/event? We didn't get to see you talk in the FB video. Did you get to say anything and if so what?

Thanks for sharing and CONGRATULATIONS!!
