Turns out traditional franchise dealers really don't like the tesla direct sales business model. For 2018 I don't think tesla even made the lost of top 25 auto manufacturers but the big guys seem to be trying pretty hard to shut it down.
All the traditional dealer does is add around $2,000 to the price tag of the car and milk you for more money, compared to if we all could go to Sam's Club or Costco and order a car from the manufacturer. That's why I will never buy a new car I don't care how much money I have.

I lived in the commonwealth for about 20 years. I'm just surprised the va dmv actually did something productive, to me that's the real news here.
