Well, that was interesting...
I went to the car wash yesterday, got there right before closing. I got the whole "What kind of car is that?!?! from the guy that started me up...And by the time I got through the wash, everyone that works at the place (with the exception of the female cashier) came out and crowded around the car to have a look at it. The two brothers that work there even got their dad (the owner) to come out and look at it...He said "Wow, I was just reading about this car!!! This is the first one we've had here! He seemed about as excited to see it and have it at his place as I was to get it delivered before New Years! They all asked tons of questions, and marveled at the styling of the car, the huge touch screen, and it being all electric. I swear, I bet they fuss over Lamborghini's less! It was quite an interesting experience...I've had people remark about the car and ask me questions, but never in a group like that.
Some things to note: I followed the instructions in the Owners Guide about putting the car in Neutral and keeping it there (Raising the car up, putting it in Jack mode, and then manually turning the car off on the touch screen)...But, as soon as I got out of the car, it popped back into Park. Hmmmm. So, they told me to stay in the car (which the normally don't let you do at this car wash) to keep it in Neutral...Which worked, but even still, about half-way through we hit a bump and the car slammed back into Park. They had to emergency-stop the wash and let me get it set back into Neutral...It was a little disconcerting, to say they least! But that was the only hiccup, we made it through fine after that.
One last note: While they were drying the car off, I popped the Frunk (I'm still having a hard time saying that with a straight face though, so I usually just say 'the hood,' or 'the bonnet'), and there was a fair amount of water around the flat edges of the storage area under the hood...I didn't seem to have dripped down into the storage area, but I was not thrilled to see that. FYI, this was not a "Brushless" caar wash, but it's the only car wash anywhere near here...And we survived ;)
